Arrival Story:
Mosey joined our family around the same time I was born, I think. I'll have to find out where she came from -- probably a pet store(?). We got her when our family lived in Columbus, Ohio. When I was two years old, we then moved to Iowa City, Iowa. Mosey lived there for the rest of her life.

The good things: Mosey enjoyed being around her family, especially Dad. I loved to throw the tennis ball for her to chase and return to me. Sometimes I would wake up in the mornings and Mosey would be lying on the floor next to my bed with a tennis ball between her front paws--waiting for me to get up and play! Here's how Mosey got her name: When my older sister was little, she heard my mom say, "Noisey! Noisey!" when Mosey was barking. My sister tried to repeat what Mom said but it came out as, "Mosey! Mosey!" The word/name stuck! Not so good things: Mosey was a little high-strung. I'm not sure if she had been abused as a puppy, or at least not properly socialized/trained. She HATED strangers and seemed to want to attack them. Whenever someone came over, we had to put Mosey in a separate room with the door closed. If anyone ever rang the doorbell, Mosey would go insane, clawing at the wood panel underneath the window. Mosey was never properly leash-trained, either. She was a puller! Mosey was euthanized when she was about 12 or 13 years old. My dad said she had arthritis and cataracts. I miss Mosey and will never forget her.
