Arrival Story:
I was called by the Santa Cruz Shelter to ask if we'd take over fostering Ivory because it was hard for our friends to manage 3 dogs. One a 2 year old who wants his way(what 2 year old doesn't) and the other a sweet girl. We had just lost Clayton to him being hit by a car and somehow the heavens blessed us. Being friends with J & J we were able to take over being Ivory's foster parents. And most likely we'll become her forever home. We love her too much to let her go. J was given a call at home and asked if he would foster Ivory. It was not a good time for us to start a new dog in our house, but is there ever a good time? LOL

Bio:
J was told that Ivory was in a house and was an indoor dog, her owner got a new place and she could not have the dog and Ivory was surrendered to Animal Services. Yeah I think that was a bunch of BS if I ever heard any. The Director at the Santa Cruz Shelter later told me that she thought Ivory was left outside by herself a lot. She is not a pup who likes to be alone. Somehow I imagine that she was left alone in a yard and she finally broke free and ran away. Of course that's my perception of the insanity this poor little dog could have faced. Now she's happy and loved! Ivory is available through the Santa Cruz County Animal Services 580 Airport Blvd. Watsonville, CA 95076 (831) 454-7303

This weekend was GREAT! Friday night my papa James found out that my former foster mama paid my adoption fee and all he needed to do was to get my rabies shot updated to get my official license. He gave my foster mama a hard time for paying for me. She still loves me a lot so I know she did it because every time she sees me, she's so happy that I'm happy. Later that night my former foster papa came over and brought Yogi to visit. We didn't do much because it was pretty late. My 2 papas played video games while the 2 of us slept most of the time. Saturday night we went to see my foster mama and papa, Erika and Dennis. My Papa James and them had dinner and played rock band while I played with Yogi and Smokey. Everyone had great night. Then yesterday Papa James took me to Pet Pals to get a Christmas collar and a yucky shot. He promised me cookies for the pain and suffering which he made good on. Then after we went back to Animal Services. There I saw all of the people who work there and they were so excited to see me. I was excited to officially be BELLA RUBLE and no longer property of the County. I am the most loved bully, piggy, sweet girl in the City of Santa Cruz, just ask anyone who knows me!

So mama bought my dad a stuffed doggie for Valentines Day...of course on sale after Valentines day because Mama and Papa don't submit to "The Man" and his made up holidays. Anyhow....so I've had my eye on that pup...trying to figure out it's evil plot to take my place. Finally last week it made it's move...it was sitting on top of the dresser and fell off onto my mama's feet one morning before her shower. It was early so mama didn't bother with it. Whew! What a relief. I know she loves on me no matter how early it is. Then I was on the attack....I got the pup into my grasps and now half of the inside of it is on the floor, it's missing a chunk out of it's butt and head. Yippee!!!! No worries about that thing.

 

It's been a while....

So my mama and papa have been loving on me so much lately that I forget to write to update everyone. Here's an update on my life as a floppy eared girl....

There have been these strange dirty smelly guys coming over to our house everyday for the last couple of weeks. I don't like them at all but mama and papa say they're fixing the house, so that's good but I don't like that they take away from my morning cuddle time with papa. They make a bunch of loud noises and it really upsets me.

I've become friends with Mama and Papa's friend Steve. He's nice to me and always gives me cookies. How could I not like him? He even lets me lay in his lap when we're in the car together. He likes to sleep as much as I do...that's a good hobby to bond over. :)

Papa attempted tot take me to the beach one day while the smelly guys were there. I didn't like the way the sand felt. It was kind of yucky. We also met a new friend, Pula. Pula was nice and chased me around the park but I didn't know I was supposed to chase her too. Oh well. Mama and Papa are both very proud that I was so good around another dog. I haven't really been friendly with any dogs in the neighborhood or anything. I haven't been bad either. Papa was happy to see me having fun with another dog.

My dog nails have been getting long so mama and papa bought me a pedipaws. Mama said that she hoped it could make my dew claw not so dangerous. Papa got me use to the sound but i didn't really like the vibration. He was able to do both of my front paws and the little machine worked good but I still didn't like it.

Things have been so good with mama and papa. They don't want to let anyone else adopt me because they love me. Recently mama and papa have been saying that I have really become an adoptable girl. I think they mean, I'm so much better behaved than I was before. I don't pee or poop in the house anymore. They've left me at home by myself a few times and as long as it's not for whole day, I'm good. I usually just sleep. I have even slept on the floor a couple of times. It freaked mama out because I was squeezed in between her and papa. She said that I've even began to snuggle feet and she loves that.

Over the weekend Mama and Papa took me to the park and while mama practiced hitting the pink ball with a big metal net looking thing...mama called it Tennis, I chased one of the pink balls and actually learned how to play fetch. They were so proud of me. I got to eat a bunch of cookies.

Well there's my floppy girl update. I hope everyone is getting lots of love and petting. :) It's almost summer, so stay in the shade or AC, which ever one you have and drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
