October 31st 2007

Wellness beef treats and cuddling! Cheese bits and chasing the cat. Running and jumping.

That cheese is not made available 24/7.

Favorite Toy:
Stuffed "lox" plushie, furry hand glove, furry flat fox, chew toys.

Favorite Food:
Any kind of wet food, and lamb treats, loves cheese (a new discovery) and hot dog treats.

Favorite Walk:
She likes neighborhood walks, but LOVES being off-lead at Pt. Isabel

Best Tricks:
Tesseracting--she moves faster than the speed of light, and singing. She prances like a fancy stallion at treat time and mutters under her breath. She also wraps her arms around you and tucks her head into you and falls asleep like that, like a toddler.

Arrival Story:
We adopted Holly from a very nice local family who had adopted her a year ago from an Asian Rescue group in SF (AHAN). They loved Holly (then called "Yollie") but with their children grown up and one leaving for college, they felt they did not have time to raise a rambunctious puppy. I found Holly on Petfinder.com, and she seemed like the perfect dog for us. We had recently lost our beloved Aussie-shepherd Dachshund mix named Sadie, and we were looking for a smallish, sweet-tempered female rescue dog. Holly really caught my attention with her beautiful brown eyes and foxlike face.

Holly was born in the mountainous region of Taiwan, where she and her litter mates were roaming around in the wild, as pups, we think. They were rescued by AHAN and brought to the United States. We think Holly is part Shiba Inu, and part "Taiwan Dog" which is the dingo dog of China. She is 30 lbs, probably her full size, and full of affection and playfulness.

Herding or prey drive?

Holly is growing and changing.:
We've had Holly now forabout 3 years. She no longer barks or growls at strangers (except at night, occasionally) and she has learned to stop herself in mid-chase with the cat. she is a fabulous goofy girl and she is a sweet- tempered, loyal and loving companion. She LOVES to cuddle on the couch for hours.
