Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

No. 1: Walks. Distant 2nd: Sitting on the back of the living room sofa looking out the window at the deer in the orchard ("Dog TV"), and darting out the door running just out of reach until she runs out of steam. Sometimes, that's a long time.

Cats. Being disturbed while sleeping. Baths.

Favorite Toy:
The rubber taco. But also fluffy or squeaky or bouncy toys.

Favorite Food:
All food, all the time.

Favorite Walk:
All walks, any walk, short or long, just take me on a walk!

Best Tricks:
Catching food on the fly, amazingly agile flips for such a pudgy puppy including catching balls and frisbees with the greatest of ease. And of course, begging.

Arrival Story:
We met Phoebe (then Ginger) at a PetSmart adoption day. She had been relinquished by her former owners who lived in a rental and the owner demanded they or the dog leave. She looked so forlorn, in her Santa costume; so depressed. We thought we could add another (3rd) dog to our clan, so home she came. She justed looked like a girl who needed a "b" sound in her name: Betty, Bonnie, Berta. Eventually we came upon Phoebe. And of course with Madeleine and Amy Lynn already in the family, she became Phoebe Lynn.

A few months later, Willie joined our clan; he was only about two or three months old. He and Phoebe hit it off. She was something of a mama to him-- Aunt Phoebe we used to call her. After living with us for a few years, Phoebe moved to Moses Lake WA, where she now lives with her new Mum and Dad, Sarita and Chris. She started as an only girl but now has a buddy. Sarita is a stay-at-home-mamadog, so Phoebe gets all the attention and walks she could want.

Forums Motto:
Feed me.
