Likes: Going bye-bye in the car, treats, when I come home, sleeping on her heated bed, snoozing in the sunshine.
Pet-Peeves: She hates the doorbell, people walking on her street, anyone too close to her car, going outside when it is cold.
Favorite Toy: All stuffed animals or squeey toys, balls, or an old sock.
Favorite Food: Pedigree wet, treats of course, anything her people are eating.
Favorite Walk: Not many walks, but we have a puppy pen to play in all the time.
Best Tricks: Sitting pretty and dancing for treats. She will bite the pant legs of strangers who come into her house.
Arrival Story: She was my birthday present the year after we lost our sweet Sadie. I was lonely and my friend's Min-Pin had a litter of puppies, so Ravan came to make me smile again.
Ravan's parents are Cyanne Pepper (Mom - named for her color) and Baby Hondo (Dad - named for a Doberman) with a big dog attitude. Ravan is very barky when strangers come around because she wants to protect her people and she defines a stranger as a threat.
Bio: Ravan is a sweet little girl, but she is very intimidated by strangers, especially men. It takes forever to get her to stop barking if someone new comes to our house and she doesn't want them to move after they sit down. Once you are accepted she loves you to pieces and wraps herself around your neck and rubs her face on your face. She is not a jumper and has her own will stool to help her get onto the bed. Yes, she sleeps with mommy. She even askes for help to get up on the couch.
I was feeling pretty bad, but I tried hard not to let Mommy know, but she knew. My food wouldn't stay down and I quit trying to eat....even water came back up, so Mommy called Dr. Hennessey and told her it was time. The last night we had together was pretty hard on her and she cried a lot, even in her sleep.....I knew she didn't want to tell me goodbye, but I was getting so tired I couldn't go one any more.
When we went inside I was not even nervous like I usually was and they had a nice cozy spot for me on the table with a thick comfy blanket, but Mommy brought mine too so I would be all warm and cozy.
I didn't even notice when they put the needle in my leg....I was watching Mommy and her eyes were filled with tears. I knew I had to leave her and I really didn't want her to cry, but I was tired so I closed my eyes and drifted off. I could hear Mommy softly whispering I Love you and it made me happy.
Then when I opened my eyes, I couldn't believe how beautiful it was and I felt just like the old days with lots of energy and feeling like my feisty self. WOW! If Mommy could see this she would not be sad at all.
I looked around at the beautiful meadow and all the other animals came running to say hello.....they all had beautiful wings, and then I noticed I had some too and I knew the stories Mommy had told me were really true about the Rainbow Bridge.
I thought, I'll just wait right here, but I was whisked away by someone and told to check out my Earth Window. I was a little puzzled by that at first but when I looked out that window I got so excited! I could see Mommy and I wanted to call out to her, but she couldn't hear me and she was crying again. What to do!!!
Well, I found out that I could sneak back quietly and give a kiss or a nuzzle sometimes. Now I do it pretty often just to let Mommy know that I have not left her. I'm right here, just waiting until I see her off in the distance.....boy will that be exciting, but for now, I just play and run and chase the butterflies around the meadow....oh I almost forgot....I was given flying lessons and now I can sore all around and even come by real close to let my wings touch Mommy once in a while.
I stop in to see her often so she knows I am okay and every day I watch from my Earth Window and send a butterfly to give Mommy a kiss.
I have to go now, I hear my pals calling me for a new game we have been playing....see ya....take care....Love, Ravan NPC
The MPMM Valentine Pawty 2008 was in full swing and we were celebrating our pals birthdays for February.....someone asked Jackson when we were getting mawrried and he replied sometime in March or April. I don't know what made me say it, but it just seemed right...... I said what is wrong with right now.
In a matter of minutes everyone changed into wedding clothes and Jackson and I got mawrried. I am the happiest girl pup in the world. I am now Jackson's wife!!
We kept "GIGGY" busy (that was my slip up that I will laugh about for years). Our sweet Gibby was so kind as to play the part of 3 pups that night. He was our DJ (which he does so well). He was Jackson's Best Dog. AND he performed the ceremony and did a marvelous job of all 3 jobs.
Georgie, my sweet sisfur-in-law, was my Dog of Honor. She changed quickly into her most beautiful Valentine dress and looked delightful.
All of our pals were there already..... I already had my wedding dress... so what else did we need. It was so spontaneous and so romantic. I am still walking on a cloud. I just keep saying to myself....I'm Mrs. Jackson McClelland......I'm Mrs. Jackson McClelland...... I'm Mrs Jackson McClelland.
I am so happy that I feel like I might burst!! I LOVE YOU my handsome HUSBAND!!!
