Likes: Bouncing off the walls, playing rough with the other pups
Pet-Peeves: Being ignored by the other dogs
Favorite Toy: The amputated arm from Coco's stuffed gorilla
Favorite Food: We will be finding out - we are giving her Royal Canin Puppy
Favorite Walk: She loves walking to the mailbox with Ryan about a block away. She follows along like his shadow.
Best Tricks: She bounces up & down like a jack-in-the-box! She scares me because she jumps so high
Arrival Story: My son has been wanting to get another doxie to be a companion to Coco - she gets lonely and bored when Homer & Giselle aren't around. I found this little cutie in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram internet classifieds. I asked for pics & the owner sent me these. I immediately fell head over heels in love as did my son so we drove to Hillsboro & picked her up today (7/19/07).
Bio: Her mom is a red dilute mini with liver nose & nails & her dad is a very small black & tan.
I got to go on a trip to Houston on Monday. Ryan took me with him & I had to ride in my little crate for about 4 hrs. It was OK cause I slept all the way. Then when we got there, I met my aunt Bonnie & the boobalinis, Sam & Theo. And I got to meet my great-grandparents too. Mongaw REALLY liked me! And I saw my other cousins, Lily & Willie. Lily is the BIGGEST dog I've ever seen but she loved me a lot. Then I came back home on Tuesday with Mama & Giselle. I was good for Mama & slept in my crate all the way. I was SURE glad to see the pups when we got back though. Then Mama took me to the vet for my final set of puppy shots. Yikes! They hurt me & I yelped again. But I weigh 4 lbs. 6 oz. so I guess I'm growing OK. Mama wants my ears to get longer though. She says they need to catch up with the rest of me.
Ryan & Mama took me to the vet Friday for my second set of puppy shots - IT HURT SO BAD THAT I YELPED! I have gained one pound too - I weighed 3.1 lbs. I like eating my food - I can't say that I'm crazy about wearing those clothes that Mama puts on me but I guess I'll tolerate it. She bought me a 2 new t-shirts - one says "Everybody Loves A Redhead" but it is still too big for me. Most of all, I like playing with Coco. She is my very best pal! I missed her when she stayed with Mama for a week after Ryan hurt his fingers. But she's back home now. Giselle & Homer came over this weekend too & we had lots of fun. I can wear ALL of them out!
Mama took me to the vet Friday & he gave me a clean bill of health. They said I weigh 2 lbs.! That means Giselle is 7 times my size! She is all over me - I think she thinks I'm the baby she never had. Homer & Coco love me too & they all just lick me to death - I have to hide under the coffee table. But I'm having lots of fun in my new place. Ryan lets me sleep in the big bed with him. I think my new life is gonna be pretty good!
