Nicknames: Princess Daphne, Princess girl, Special girl, Daffers, Daffy girl
Birthday: July 25th 2001
Likes: long walks with great things to sniff, chasing squirrels, her doggie door so she can go inside or outside whnever she wants, belly rubs, playing with her dog brothers, curling up on the couch for a long nap, and lounging in the sun in the backyard
Pet-Peeves: other dogs who do not worship the ground she walks on, other dogs sniffing her bum, loud squeaky toys, and getting her face wet
Favorite Toy: It used to be her Tickle Me Elmo, but it got ripped apart, but she loves all stuffed animals
Favorite Food: peanutbutter! Frosty Paws,Chicken!! Blue Dog Bakery Peanutbutterand Molasses cookies, rawhide sticks, a nice medium-rare steak (in her dreams) or just anything that falls on the floor
Favorite Walk: all through our neighborhood everyday and especially down the road to the cow pasture. She is not allowed in the "cow's yard", but loves to walk along the fence line and watch (and smell!) the cows.
Best Tricks: sit, shake and looking like a pretty princess with her front paws crossed
Arrival Story: Daphne came from a local high kill animal shelter. She was only a year old when I got her and had been in several homes already. She was terribly insecure when I adopted her and it took a while for her to feel safe and comfortable and not be afraid I was going to give her away. I realized she did better on a regular routine so she knew when meal times would be and when she would go for walks. With the routine and some basic obedience traing she has become a relaxed happy dog.
Bio: Daphne is a very smart dog. She knows a lot of words to the point that even if I spell "treat" or "walk" out loud she knows what I am saying. She is very eager to let me know if I get off schedule too-she knows her routine and likes to follow it everyday.

3. I wish I could chase those ducks in the pond across the street.
4. I wish I could catch a squirrel for once!
