Quick Bio:

June 14th 2006

runnin' into walls, stealing toys from my pal carlos, trying to eat the cat

not getting all the toys or the best basket, wet icky weather, having to go poo outside

Favorite Toy:
the kitty, newspapers, anything shreadable

Favorite Food:
Dry chicken jerky!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere people want to pet me, and ask if I am a Chi-wa-wa (whatever that is)!

Best Tricks:
Stealing toys and squeezing under the bed.

Arrival Story:
My new Mom sprang me from the "evil pet-store." She had seen me twice before when she went in to get stuff for Carlos and the kittys. I hardly ever moved, she said. I just stared at the walls. When the other dogs barked and tried to get the attention of people who might buy them, I didn't make a sound. What was I thinking? I was very sad there. One day, "in a moment of insanity," she says, she took me home. Her doggie Carlos, a Chi-wa-wa whatever that means, had lived alone for three years, with only one cat to keep him company, and that's not saying much. (Mom has a new baby cat too, who gets along fine with me except I try to eat her) Carlos wasn't about to share his space with a glamorous ectomorph like me. He was growling and snapping at me for a week! Mom was afraid to leave us alone! Well, Carlos now plays with me for hours! I softened him up with my sweet little grey eyes. So now we are a family! I've never belonged to a family! Wow!

Cured of Baldness!

Hi, I had a stripe of baldness going my back that they call "blue dog alopecia" because I am a dilute blue color. It was unsightly, and I looked very mangy. After a year of the elixir of life, a higher protein food-- real people food actually-- I have the fur of a puppy. My best friend, Carlos, also has the greatest skin and fur.

My hint to all those who have dogs with bad skin, and fur-- start feeding them better food!

Thanks! Giselle

Today has been the most wonderful day. I think I actually found some meaning to life. I must become a therapy dog. I don't know how since I leave those thinking things up to mommy. I need to go to hospitals and have petting sessions. I love the people who have petted me today. They say I am beautiful. They are beautiful. So my Mom is off on a mission. How do I become a dog who goes to hospitals?


Name addition...

My human benefactress is of the mind that you can continue to change names to suit the personality throughout the entirety of a person (or dog's life). She herself has gone through several name changes in her day. She has added a few great names to my first name: Giselle. First off, I was not named for any model though I am a very model-like girl. The truth is she named me Giselle when she saw me staring from the tiny cage in the pet shop. Giselle is a tragic and sad Ballet. So she named me after a doomed female dancer. eek! Ghibli is a wind-- a dry hot dust bearing wind. The word means “the direction in which one turns" and in the Arab world would mean "Mecca". I think it would mean a kind of natural spiritual direction. Gigglygirl is a cute description of my personality. I think Goldie Hawn played a character by that name in an early movie-- Anyway that is the name she gave me completely-- except to add "Greyhound" to the end.

like a sweet and bitter dish it has the perfect mix of pathos and hilarity to suit my odd sense of humor.
