Quick Bio:

February 4th 2006

Getting treats out of her Kong (her average time: 5 minutes)

CATS! are the big one, but also not being able to go for a ride in the car when her family leaves

Favorite Toy:
Tennis balls!

Favorite Food:
ANY kind of human food except popcorn, french fries, or scrambled eggs (she used to like those...I wonder what happened)

Favorite Walk:
In the park

Best Tricks:
Sit, no, drop it, "Where's Kiley?", "Who's here?!", "Hi, Cally!" or "Hi Gypsie!", stay, low crawl, high five, down, gimme paw, other paw, dance, jump, and "walk like an old lady" (my 7 year old sis taught her that)

Arrival Story:
It all started in 2005. I'd been begging for a dog, and finally my grandparents relented. They said that if I got an A in math (my most difficult subject) they'd get me a doggy. Well, I got a B+, so they relented. We looked up good dogs on the internet & Mini Aussies popped up on PetFinders. We went to see the very nice breeder Kali Ramon in Goochland, Va, and in March or April of 2006, we went to see my new puppy, Issey. She was (and still is!! lol) the cutest little puppy ever! You'll be saying that too, once you get to know her!!

If you saw on her trick list where some of her tricks are "Hi, Cally/Gypsie", "Who's here?!" or, "Where's Kiley?" there's a story behind those. Cally and Gypsie are 2 cats that Issey has learned the name of and can recognize. So whenever we say "Hi Cally!" Issey looks toward Cally's house (if she's outside) or runs to the window (if she's inside). She does the same thing if we say "Hi Gypsie". "Where's Kiley?"....we say that when my little sister is hiding, and then Issey will perk up her ears and run around sniffing my little sister out. And she will not stop till she finds her! We feel confident that if Kiley were actually missing, Issey would probably be able to find her. "Who's here?".....we used to say this when she was a puppy and she could see someone coming down the driveway or up the hill towards the house, so now when we say it she recognizes it from when she was a puppy and goes running towards the door/window (if she's inside) or the person coming up the hill ( if she's outside ).

One funny thing that happened to me about 2 weeks ago was... there was a fly buzzing around in the living room. Well that annoying flying thing got on my nerves SO bad!!! So for half an hour, I chased it around the room snapping at it. After about 35 minutes of this, I finally caught it! And I got to eat it. :) It happened before my mommy or daddy realized what had happened. =D

Later gator.

Hello. I'm at my house (Hailey's grandmother's house). Actually, I'm at their business. They own a self storage. So from 9 to 5 each day except Sundays we are down there. It's like 5 minutes from their house so it's not too big of a deal.

Hailey wants to come over and spend the night with my mommy and daddy (her grandparents) this weekend. I hope they say yes. They'll probably say yes! Maybe we can go to the park? Oh wait I forgot it's supposed to snow. Oh oh oh or we can go sledding if it snows like it's supposed to!

:D I can find a LOT of things to do! A few weeks ago, over Hailey and Kiley and Traci' (their mom's) Christmas break from school (Lynn is a teacher), it snowed a LOT!!! It was awesome. They threw tennis balls in the snow. Of course, they had to angle it just perfectly so it would skid along the top and not dunk under, because if it dunked under I couldn't find it. Haha :)

Well I'm going to go...and be bored...with nothing to do...sigh...


ps. I love you all! :D
