Arrival Story: I had to get a female dog after my I had to have my old dog SPOOK put to sleep. I heard a breeder on the local radio staion advertising a black female toy poodle puppy so I went and saw her...just what I've been looking for. SOLD!! She was only 5 wks. old at the time so I had to wait for 3 wks. to take her away from her Mama. She was so tiny and still is...she was the runt of the litter.
Bio: Junebug's middle name is SPOOKah (since I'm a girl) I'm named after my big brother, SPOOK.
My Bithday is Nov. 22nd!
On June 25th, 2005, my Mommy had to take her old dog of 17 1/2 years to the vet to put him to sleep. It was the hardest thing she's ever had to do!! SPOOK was not sick...he was just OLD & tired! His quality of life was gone...so she did what she had to do. (as a favor to him)
She brought him back home and buried him underneath her bedroom window so he would always be near! She told SPOOK "good night" when she went to bed that night and at the exact same time she said that...a firefly (lightning bug) flew on her bedroom screen window and lit up as if it were "SPOOK" saying "I'm OK now and things will be alright!"
She knew right then she was going to name her next dog (whenever she felt the time was right) FIREFLY or JUNEBUG...since it happened in June.
And that's how I got my name. Mommy had my name picked out 6 months before I was even born!! She hasn't had a female dog since the 60's, but in my case, she wanted a girl dog just so she could name her JUNEBUG. After hearing all the stories Mommy tells me about SPOOK, I think I have some pretty big shoes (paws) to fill!!
She never believed in that kind of stuff before until then, but she sure does now! SPOOK still gives her some sort of sign that he's still around watching over us, every now & then. And she still sees SPOOK in cloud formations. Silly?? Some people may even think it's kinda "SPOOKY"!
