Arrival Story:
My family had an Elkhound - Missy and she passed away in September of '05. My mom then adopted her Grandparent's cat after her Grandpa passed away and her Grandma moved into a nursing home. A few months after that she found out the cat - Bianca had cancer and she passed away in May of '06. Mom had then just graduated college, moved home and kept saying she missed having a dog and the cat. (When they had the cat Grandpa kept saying how the she wasn't the same as a dog. She was moody and wouldn't stay still so he could give her a nice scratch.) So my Dad got the idea he would buy Mom a puppy for a graduation gift. Mom began searching on the internet through breeders she bookmarked on a whim and came across a one in Pennsylvania whose dog was having puppies in September. She and Dad explained the idea to my Grandpa and Grandma (Mom is 25, but is living home for now) and after persuading Grandpa a bit (after all we won't be living here forever) they said that I could come live with Mom! So on October 29th, 2006 after a roughly 14 hour drive to and from Three Springs, Pennsylvania by Mom, Dad and Grandpa (and he tried to say he didn't want me) I was home! Mom named me Ursa Bella Minima because Ursa means 'bear' in latin and Elkies look like little bears, while Bella means 'beautiful' and Minima means 'little' Mom always says my attitude makes me an Ursa Major instead of Ursa Minor, but we all have our moments.

I have been described by others as a "pistol" and an "assertive little bugger." I am very outspoken and do my best to get what I want, which I usually do... When people tell me I'm cute my mommy says that I know and that's why I'm such a little bugger. I can't help being as cute as I am. No doggy can... Humans just have to deal and love us because they can't not!

Forums Motto:
I'm a hound dog...

Mom's Birthday!

Today is Mom's birthday and I promised I'm going to TRY and be a really good girl. I got my shopping done, I just need help wrapping. Slobber and wrapping paper don't mix... I plan on running around outside to get out any extra energy so I am nice and 'mellow' when company comes tonight. I don't want to be a bad girl and have to miss the pawty. There will be so many people to pay attention to me, I can't pass that up! Oh and of course I want to be with Mom on her special day, you don't turn 175 everyday. What thats not right, people years are different. How does it go again...

My birthday isn't till Thursday but we had a party today. I never had a birthday party before so I didn't know what to expect...

My Mom, Dad, Grandmas, one Grandpa (the other had a meeting) Uncle Paul, Aunt Amber and my friend Joyce came.

I got a real yummy cake from Sharon's K-9 Barkery and the humans said their cake was good too...

I got so many cool presents Sharon gave me a carob birthday card.

Grandma Tia and Grandpa Ralph got me a photo session at the barkery, a frame for the picture and a marrow bone from Nodine's Smokehouse too... Mmmmm

Joyce got me barkery yummies... Mmmm again.

Mommy and Daddy got me chicken jerky and some healthy edible nylabones.

Grandma Cheryl and Grandpa Peter got me a Merrick Sarge bone and a hoof.

I feel so loved, I had such a good time I think I'm going to like these birthday party things...


I Was Tagged!

Hey puppers! My pal Maisy tagged me and now I'm it. I get to choose 7 of my pals to tag.

Here are the rules:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. I like to annoy dogs who think they're to good to play with me by barking and running circles around them.

2. I love my Daddy but I'd really rather sleep with Mommy alone...

3. I sleep with my favorite toy Squeekers every night since he was sent to me and my littermates when I still lived with my furmommy.

4. If I can't get what I want from mommy I see Grandma, she can't resist me!

5. I love to steal stuff... The bath mat, shampoo bottles, socks, underwear, just to see how long it takes the humans to notice I have it.

6. I love carrots, nice and crunchy!

7. I bark when I meet new people because I'm nervous and want to make a good impression...

I'm tagging the following 7 pups!
