Arrival Story:
We picked up Holly from the Martinez CA Animal Control when she was finally ready, 1/5/09, a Christmas present for ME and my son, Stephen, 12. She was 3 or 4 months old, picked up as a stray with her sister-pup ON CHRISTMAS EVE!!! Everyone has a different idea what her breed mix is. Lots of people say Yorkie (mix) which is what Stephen wanted to begin with. She is tousled all over - looks like she just went through a wind tunnel. I have spent hours going through mixed breed and designer breed dog puppy pictures online, trying to figure her out. A groomer at PetSmart suggested Miniature Schnauzer/Yorkie - Yep, with her bushy eyebrows and chin hair, I think that's IT! Maybe with some JRT mixed in for extra measure. I'm going with that for now. She runs like CRAZY but also wants to stick like VELCRO! She is very smart and eager to please. What a great dog - we're so lucky!!!!

Bio:
She is fine-boned and skinny, only weighs 12 lbs. She is so energetic that I have switched to a higher protein/fat/calories kibble. Big mistake, I can tell the difference, now she is REALLY bouncing off the walls...

I know I didn't come up with this idea, but I finally TOOK the idea at least, and again - wonder why I took so long to do it...
I break up a section of Holly's favorite "junk food" Puperoni (I know, I know, but it's her ONLY vice) and toss the TINY LITTLE pieces around the room. (Pieces maybe half the size of my little fingernail...) I use the messiest room in the house, usually my bedroom - heh heh, so it takes her much longer to search out the treats.

She loves this game so much that she whines when she wants to play it, and it's a different whine than when she needs to go outside. She lets me know in no uncertain terms that she's waited long enough and wants to play it NOW! I really enjoy tossing the treats in one area while she's looking in another area, but her ears are good and she usually hears where a treat lands and races over "there" to find it.

Good thing about using a strong scented dog treat and not other food like bits of hotdog, if she doesn't find it right away, it's not going to rot! However, I don't think she's missed any yet! GOOD DOG HOLLY BELLE!

Did I mention lately how much I love being a Dog Mom, and how much I love Holly Belle?

 

Finally Bought Holly Belle a Kong - WHY Did I Wait So Long?

Holly has LOTS of toys - she loves stuffed (able to UNSTUFF) and squeaky toys. She loves chicken covered pig ears. She loves to chew, but has never shown much interest in rubber toys. Somehow, I just never got around to buying her a Kong. Well, it's been raining like, FOREVER and she's driving me nuts, bringing me toys to throw for her to fetch in the house. Seems like 24/7. I'm tired of playing fetch... I FINALLY bought her a Kong and started stuffing treats in there. HEAVEN! She loves it and it keeps her busy for a long time. WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG???????

From Holly Belle - WHY DID MY MOM WAIT SO LONG TO BUY ME THIS TOY? Arooooooooooooooooooooooo!
