   Leave a bone for Lelah

Lee, Velcro, Yee-ya, Yee-Yee, Pooty, Leebee, Flealah, Leeb... anything that springs to mind!

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Having my head scratched or stroked or just being touched in general; playing with my mom when she gets home from work; my Gramma.

Going out in the rain; thunderstorms and rain in general; other dogs.

Favorite Toy:
My non-edible greenie bone, Loofah red-devil-dog thing, and anything new and soft that makes NOISE that I can destroy in a matter of minutes...

Favorite Food:
Chicken Soup for the Dog Lovers Soul, Large Breed formula. Cheesy name, high in nutritional value sayeth the mom. Plus- the large breed kind doesn't give me gas!

Favorite Walk:
No favorite walk at the moment... too many dogs in the neighborhood.

Best Tricks:
I can sit like nobody's business! I also will do down and stand and some others if mom has treats for me! I give kisses to but that makes me shy...

Arrival Story:
My mom and dad registered with Great Creatures rescue, who specialize in Great Danes like me and Irish Wolfhounds. They liked brindles and the next day, I was picked up by a shelter in Morristown, TN. I was soooo skinny and had worms because my previous owner hadn't taken good care of me- they'd just tied me outside. So when I'd had enough of that, I broke free. The shelter called the rescue and the rescue called mom to tell her that they'd found what she was looking for [that would be me...] and were holding me especially for her and dad. I finally got to meet them a week later. Everyone ooed and aaahed over me and my short ears, [they were cropped very close for some reason... I would have preferred they stay long and floppy, but no one asked me....] my height, [I'm short for a Dane, but just as fun!] and how pretty I was. They wouldn't let me go home with them the first day, so my mom came back the next day with my new gramma to meet me so I would know that they hadn't just left me there forever. Then, finally- I went home with my mommy and daddy! They had a futon just for me, chew toys and had moved everything out of my way so if I accidentally knocked something over, I wouldn't feel bad.

I'm settled nicely into my new home. I love to zoom in my back yard and go with mom in the car quite a bit. She likes to take me to Starbucks too to show me off- and they always give me lots of goodies! I just ADORE people!! I like playing tug of war and just snuggling with my mommy in general. I also really like to sit on the couch in the evenings with my mama or with gramma when she comes over and have a snooze in their lap. I don't like other dogs, but mom says that's okay. That's why I came to this family- the best family in the world.

Forums Motto:
Great things come in small packages!

It's been SO warm the past month or so- and FINALLY it got coooold this weekend. Mom and dad keep talking about snow too... I don't remember snow I don't think.

Dad got to stay home most of the day Saturday too. I was SO excited! His friend David came over, then a couple of mom's friends came over for a little bit and all eyes were on ME. That's the way I'm starting to like it I say. Mom and dad had to be gone most of the day yesterday though, but I was a VERY good girl and didn't tear anything up or open up the cabinets even! Mom says that I've been a good girl the past week or so ... it's 'cause they give me the PB baby. That's all I need.

Well, and some mommy-cuddles and daddy-hugs too...


I love these Holiday-times!

Mom was telling me last night that she gets to stay home with me AGAIN on Friday and Monday... that's FOUR whole days in a row that my mommy doesn't have to get up early in the morning to go away then come back late in the day! I'm so excited. Dad still has to go to work, but sometimes mom and I go to the place where she gets coffee and I get treats and then we go visit him.

I'm feeling MUCH better too. I don't smell stinky anymore too bad is what mom says which I'm glad of. A girl gets kind of tired of having her booty being checked out too much, don't ya know. But mom says I seem to be all better so I'm very happy about that!

Well, mom and dad are both going to be home early tonight so I'm going to go take a good nap so I can be up and awake to spend tons of time with them! Watch out futon- here I come!


Well well well...

It seems the crazy time is finally over! Saturday night, mom and dad sat down and gave each other stuff and guess what- they gave ME stuff too! I got a 'Good Cuz' which is REALLY squeaky and I LOVE, 2 pig ears, a 'Jolly Ball' which I'm still figuring out, dad got me a harness type thing which he said we can use instead of a collar sometimes and finally a down blanket!!! I LOVE down blankies!!! We had a really fun time.

Sunday they were gone a lot of the day. Mom told me that they had to go over to Gramma's that morning, then they came back for a bit. Dad said then they had to go see HIS gramma and grampa so I guess that was okay. They came back after a long time it seemed then left AGAIN. I had enough of that leavin stuff, so I searched really hard for something to get myself into... and found it! I got into a carrying case and found some oil that smelled REALLY good at the time... mom told me it was for her sewing machine? I don't know what that is... but I'll NEVER do that again. They came home and I had it ALL over my futon. I had a great time doing that... but they weren't happy and then they got upset and mom was on the phone for a little bit. Seems they were worried that it might make me sick! I didn't know that! But mom told me that it wouldn't- they told her on the phone that it would just start to pass through me... and boy it did. I'll NEVER get into that stuff again. Shoo.

So Monday I spent all day walking around with underwear on me. How embarassing! But mom told me that I would feel better in a little bit. So me, mom and dad sat around all day Monday. That was great :) . I love hanging out with them. I'm so glad I have a mommy and daddy that love me now. It's a great feeling.
