Favorite Walk: Brooklyn Bridge Park and Hillside Park
Best Tricks: My favorite is having her go straight from standing to laying down (without sitting)
Arrival Story: I was working at the Humane Society. While I was out of town one week, she came in with her mother and sister. The puppies were brand new and would likely have been put down had one of the other employees not graciously offered to foster them. He moved about a month later and had to bring the whole dog family in to give them to the new family that was going to be fostering them. I happened to be working that morning and fell in love with the puppies (they were 4 weeks old). I decided that when they became old enough to be adopted, I was going to get one of them. Lo and behold, a few weeks later, Zelda came home with me. Fortunately, her sister went home the next day and her mother was adopted about a week later, so everyone is in good homes and hopefully as spoiled rotten as Zelda is.
Bio: Zelda is crafty and slightly diabolical. I think she has decided that her humans are actually her minions.
Forums Motto: I solemnly swear that I'm up to no good
We've been in Brooklyn for a long time now! When we first got here I was really nervous because all of those big brown boxes were all over and I had to stay in a new place. But now that we're all settled I love it! There were a lot of changes. Instead of going in the backyard now I have to put on my leash and go to the park. Sometimes Mommy takes me in these fenced-in places to play without my leash. When I'm in there sometimes other dogs come too. I'm meeting a lot of other dogs and having fun. To go outside now I have to go into this little room and it moves and when the door opens we're somewhere else. Mommy calls it an "elevator." It was really weird at first but not anymore! Out building has lots of other dogs in it, and most of them are nice to me. The other day we met this really mean terrier that snarled at me, and his owner didn't even care! Other than that it's great. There are doormen in our building and I've made friends with them. Sometimes they give me biscuits when I come in from a walk. I know exactly where they keep the box of treats, so when I come in I try to go stand by them so they'll know they're supposed to give me some. I'm having lots of fun here in Brooklyn.
The house is all crazy! Things keep disappearing from the walls and my humans keep putting things into these big brown squares they call "boxes." Mommy says this is what they have to do to go to this Brooklyn place. Mommy says my life my life is going to be very different but a lot of fun. Apparently there are people on our floor in our new building who have a big dog! I hope I can make new friends in Brooklyn, because I just made a new friend in Savannah named Pixie and I really like having someone to play with.
Mommy told me that we're moving this summer. She said we're going to live in a place called "Brooklyn," in "New York." Apparently I'm not going to have a backyard anymore, which makes me kind of sad. But then Mommy told me I would be able to do a lot of walking and go to places called dog parks so I can run around off my leash. I'm kind of nervous about it, but Mommy seems really excited, and so do Grandma and Grandpa, so it must be a really wonderful place. I'm going to try to be excited too!
