   Leave a bone for Persie

Parsnip, Parsley Hay, Mrs. Wiggles

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

April 24th 2001

Her British "cousin" Pico (a Springer Spaniel), her Aunt Sally's Sunday dinners.

Being alone, toenail clippers, people thinking her name is "Percy" and that she's a boy -- which she isn't. Obviously. ;-) Her full name is "Persephone" -- after the Greek goddess of Springtime.

Favorite Toy:
All three cats.

Favorite Food:
Aunt Sally's Yorkshire puddings & gravy, Jumbones, frozen carrots, and "doggie chocolates" sent from England

Favorite Walk:
The Goyt Valley outside Buxton, Derbyshire, England & anywhere with piles of leaves to sprint through. She also likes to go to the beach.

Best Tricks:
Giving her paw when someone says "hi"

Arrival Story:
Persie comes from Tait's Bassets outside State College, Pennsylvania. She was born April 24, 2001 (daughter of Jana x Speiser). Any other Tait's Bassets out there? She'd love to "find" some of her siblings!

Persie has covered more than 14,000 miles in her lifetime -- she's quite the travelin' dog. She has flown across the Atlantic on British Airways, been in a cab, has gone up a mountain in a cable car, and cruised across the Bay of Fundy on a high-speed ferry ("The Cat" out of Nova Scotia). Persie (and I) spent a year living in Derbyshire, England complements of the new Pet Passport Scheme. While in the UK, Persie camped on a cliff overlooking the Irish Sea in north Wales, explored the Lake District with her aunt and uncle, and frolicked in the North Sea in Yorkshire. She enjoyed walks in the woods with her frisbee-obsessed friend/"cousin" Pico (the very handsome English Springer Spaniel in the photo with her who ALSO has his very own page on Dogster), and visiting her Grandpa Roy and Grandma Joyce who gave her beef tongue and liver. Persie has also been to 3 Canadian provinces and 14 states. She loved crossing the border into Canada because the Canadian border patrol gives out dog biscuits if you're cute. She also loved New Mexico because the cab drivers in Santa Fe let dogs ride for free, Carlsbad Caverns has an airconditioned kennel facility, and she got to sleep in a king-sized bed in Alamogordo. The only bummer was that she wasn't allowed in the jacuzzi tub! She also enjoys Colorado -- especially trout fishing at Maroon Lake with her Uncle Alec and leaving her bone outside overnight for the local bears to share. She'd love to be pals with any dog who's in search of a new friend -- especially black labs (she has an instant crush on all black labs), bulldogs (her former boyfriend was a bully), English Springer Spaniels, or other Basset Hounds out there in Dogster-land. And she's especially fond of dogs from the UK - she misses Britain!
