I like to play with my four legged friends at Camp BowWow .Ok, I have to be honest here she loves FOOD any kind even pickles .Sleeping under the covers at night time

That she has to share treats with her two sisters & can not ride in the front seat of the car.

Favorite Toy:
Her sisters.

Favorite Food:
Cheese /peanutbutter rollups. Cheese that is squeezed from a can. Would eat dial soap again if I would let her .

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
Sits, down , wait, stay,Hi fives and jumps thru a hoop, turns and sits down, bow and wait. Sings along with her Mom..Paw other paw. Speaks on on command .

Arrival Story:
I was a 1 1/2 yr old found wandering around with a broken pevis and had bullet wounds from being shot in three places. I still have three bullets in my legs and back. Less invasive to leave in than to take out. My head has a permanent goose egg bump on it from where one of the bullets was. I ended up with Vickys Pet Connection in Ada Mi. They helped me heal and put me up for adoption. Mom had just lost her lab of 16 yrs and was not looking for another dog but the people at the dog park keep telling her about me. I was being shown each weekend but nobody wanted me. I knew my Mom was out there and I was holding on for her. So I wasn't suprised that she ended up adopting me sight unseen. Our hearts spoke to one and other even before we meet. She didn't even know what kind of a dog treeing walkercoonhound was. Or that I was ( AM) a very vocal dog. Did I suprise her. I came with the name Ellie May but Mom changed it to Gretchen May because I am a city hound dog.

Mom calls me her little flour dog

Mom calls me her little flour dog. Yes,that is the correct spelling. Mom came home from work, I wasn"t there greet her by the front door ,only Pearl. So she knew something was up. She looked inside the living room. She saw that I had taken a new 5 lb bag of flour from the kitchen into the living room and ripped it open . Flour was all over the floor, our dog bed ,etc. None was left in the bag. I mean none. Mom found me in the basement stairwell looking up at her and trying to become invisible.( the animal experts say that dogs don't have a guilty conscious , they haven't meet any of Mom's dogs). It did not work she saw me. So I give her that look that trys to say I did not do it ,Mom ,it must of been Pearl . I knew she didn't believe me. Cause my nose (Mom has picture) was covered in flour and my black fur show white powder all over it. She told me this was the second ( I did not learn the first time) and last time I better do this or I would not get any homemade treats. She also told me that she loved me to pieces which was a good thing. Or there would of been a phone call placed to Aunt Vicky about a re-homing question. Just kidding ,she told me that I and Pearl are hers for life.


We now have a back up singer

We now have a back up singer when Mom and I sing. Neither of us can carry a tune but it doesn't stop us having fun singing. I sit up straight and kind of sings (OK ,barks ) the words. My favorite song is," If your happy and you know it wag your tail". Pearl will join in but stays laying down and will pick her head up if she feels like it (or not) and goes the ar-ruh, ar-ruh, aruh ar-ruuuuuuuuuuuuuh in the hound doggy way . Will work her way into the baying sound. We say she is the perfect backup singer for us. It is just too funny.


No electric morning

Mom over slept cause the electric went out at 3:45 this morning. That was just after the two of thems had gotten up to go potty. Sheena can not hold it thru the night like she use to. The warm wind was howling and taking the snow away, Very balmy outside. Mom was surprise that all three of us were in the bed when she woke up. It was a 3 dog night.

Boy, did the weather change by the time Sheena and us houndies went out at 9:30 this A.M. it was a cold, cold wind. We are all snuggled inside even tho the heat went back on at noon. We had a special treat of scramble eggs and cheese and bits of hot dogs for our first meal of the day. That was of course after we ate our kibble and chicken broth. Mom now will finish the baking we started yesterday.

Sheena is feeling better because yesterday she went to the vet and got her Adequan shot for her arthritis. She is still taking two Zinc capsules a day for a zinc deficiency which runs in older Nordic dogs. The vet changed her eye ointment to one with a stronger med.It has a loong name Erythromycin Ophthalmic . We are keeping our paws crossed that it works better. Need to go now, cookies need taste testing
