Favorite Food: fresh carrots, peanut butter cookies, apples, things dragged off the counter when her mom and dad are out
Favorite Walk: magnusin dog park, to the dog bakery, to the school playground is the usual
Best Tricks: rotating a ball in her mouth with her front paws, jumping over fences, update: after her basic manners class she can go "down", "stay", "wait", and is working on "leave it" and "bang bang"
Arrival Story: Sienna was rescued from a pound. She was abandoned from a breeder and she had just given birth to puppies. Her nipples were all saggy. She was left at a pound that gave her a week to live. We were so sad to leave all the other dogs behind, but according to the pound, she was not very adoptable due to her appearance (small and saggy). She also wasn't housebroken.
Luckily, she got along great with Zuki so we decided to adopt her. The first night she came home and snuggled right in between the pillows. What nerve! She has since been demanding, loving, and a great friend to Zuki. We love her.
Bio: If there was a scale for bossiness she would be off the charts! She always wants things her way, and usually gets what she wants. Main demands: walks, toys (from zuki), attention, more walks.
But we have to say she is the sweetest thing and is smart as heck! She took a "basic manners" class in Spring 07 and shortly after got her Canine Good Citizen (CGC). However, when we are not around she is a proud member of the NPC (naughty pup club) and is known for sneaking food off the counter and shoes to nibble on.
Sorry I haven't updated in awhile. I've been pretty busy taking care of my mom and the rest of the family. I'm the boss around here and they all need to take my orders. :-)
It sure was stressful to move. As you may or may not know, I am allergic to car riding. I get pretty stressed out and sick. I had to take a lot of medications but I got through it. Ellie was my pillow part of the time. Then she got tired of me and tried to move away. I got her too hot. She has like a huge fur coat.
Now I'm just getting used to my new place. There's a big yard for me to play in. I got nervous the other day and ate some stuff out of the trash can. Back to my old tricks!
Ok better go off to nap. No one can believe I'm almost 12, it's because of all my napping probably that I stay so cute and youthful.
