Terrific Terrier Tales Told By A Silky Terrier Named Elizabeth
Hi! My real name is "Elizabeth Of Cerritos", but everybody calls me Lizzie or Liz. I'm a Silky Terrier girl (mom says I'm a Silky Terror). On August 4, 2000, I was born at Delayre Kennels, in Sun Valley, California. When I was four months old I went to live with my new Mom & Dad in Cerritos, California.
This is me at four months!
I was pretty scared when I left Sun Valley to live in Cerritos, but I'm not scared anymore 'cause this is a real good place to live. I can do just about anything I want to do around here, and I don't get into very much trouble when I do something I shouldn't!
I have lots of toys that I really love. I have stuffed toys, lattex toys, rope toys, and socks from dad. My favorite pastimes are sleeping, playing, eating & chewing everything I see. I really, really, really love to chew things!
See what I mean about chewing?
This picture doesn't show all of the mess I made - sorry Mom!
I had the urge to rip the stuffing out of the duck
and give him a good shaking, so I did it!
I love to play with Daddy's socks when he takes them off at night. He gets kinda mad at me when I steal his socks, but he can't stay mad at me for very long!
Peekaboo! HeeHee - look at what I have! (Click here to see more pictures of me and my sock.)
Here I am, sittin' on daddy's lap!
I'm checkin' out the oregano for Mom...
I hope she makes Oregano Chicken soon!
I'm taking a break from playing with my sock.
Look up there! I see a possum sittin' on the fence! I betcha I could catch it if I wanted to!
I see a bottle of puppy shampoo sitting on the counter and I know what that means! I pretend that I don't like baths very much, and I pretend that I don't like being groomed. But, you know what? It really doesn't bother me, but I'll never admit that to Mom or Dad)
Mom, why are you doing this to me?
Guess what! I have an older sister now, her name is
(Click on her underlined name to see her very own page, or you can click on her picture below to see her page).
Honey was abandoned, she was tied up & left in front of a dog pound. She had to stay there all night until the staff found her the next morning. Honey told me that she was real cold and real scared from being tied up outside all night.
Mom & Dad adopted Honey from the
Silky Terrier Rescue
group on August 21, 2001. Honey was eleven years old when she came to live with us. She has cataracts and doesn't always see real good. Sometimes she doesn't see me standing there and she bumps right into me!! (I think she does it on purpose but Mom says I'm being silly to think that.)
Mom & Dad think Honey is soooo cute when she sits up and begs. Now, I'm not saying this out of jealousy, but I don't understand what they think is so cute about Honey sitting up. If I wanted to, I could sit up too ya know!
My Sister - Honey!
Mom said one reason she wanted to get another dog was 'cause she thinks I sleep too much. She thinks I'm bored and I need a dog friend Oh yeah, almost forgot to tell ya, Mom said this picture of us was not what she had in mind when she said I needed another dog to keep me company!
Honey has a "Rescued Pets Pictures" page. Click on the graphic below to see picture of other rescue pets, but don't forget to come back here when you're finished looking!
Mom asked me if I'd put some pictures of the other dogs that she and dad used to have on my web page. She said she thinks I would have liked them all if I had met them. I said sure I'd do it, it didn't bother me to have pictures of other dogs on my web page. What else could I say? I didn't want to hurt her feelings. And, it really is okay with me 'cause even though she's never said it, I know she loves me best! I'm not jealous, really I'm not. So here they are
This is Brandy, she was a Corgi mix. She used to live here with Mom and Dad before I came to live with them. Mom told me she was a real fun dog and she said she loved Brandy a lot.
The picture on the left was taken on Thanksgiving day when Brandy was just a pup, about two years before she came to live with Mom & Dad. The picture on the right is her in our back yard, she was about four then.
This is Mom holding "Sugar Pops" -- Sugar was a Silky Terrier.
Mom said this picture was taken right after she and dad got back from a vacation in Hawaii. I asked her if that was a long, long, long time ago. She just gave me that look she sometimes gives me and rolled her eyes!!!
Mom and Sugar
This is a picture of "Ginger 'n' Spice" and "Gypsy Brandywine". Ginger was a Yorkshire Terrier, Mom said she was high-strung but she loved her anyway. That's Brandy sitting next to her. Mom said Brandy was very smart and VERY stubborn.
Being a Silky myself, I can honestly tell you that stubbornness is a VERY UNUSUAL trait for Silkies, and I don't care what anyone says, no one will ever get me to change my mind about that...never ever!
Ginger and Brandy
This is my Mom's sister Donna and her puppy Pork Chop (a Pekepoo). Aunt Donna had fixed pork chops the evening Uncle Gail brought home this tiny puppy. The little pup ate a bite of pork chop with such gusto that they named her Pork Chop!
Hahahahahaha, I just laugh so much everytime I hear that story.
I laugh because it's such a cute story and a such cute name too!!
I do have to tell you though, I'm a lucky dog because
when I think of how Pork Chop got her name I realize that
Mom & Dad could have named me...
Aunt Donna and Cousin Porky

One Year Old Saturday, August 4, 2001
You wouldn't believe what a great day I've had today.
Today was my birthday. I'm so happy, because I'm one year old today!
Mom & Dad gave me a bone, a stuffed pink flamingo & a big ole stuffed jack.
I jumped on that flamingo and gave him a good shaking the minute I saw him!
After I showed the flamingo who's the boss in this house, Dad & I played a game of jacks. We chased the jack around the floor till Dad got tired and had to rest.
Sunday, August 4, 2002
I'm two years old today! My birthday dinner was really delicious... two boiled shrimp in my dog food. Yummy! Honey had four shrimp (Mom said because she's twice my size) and Mom & Dad ate the rest of the shrimp with cocktail sauce!
I got a blue monkey & some flavored chew sticks for my birthday, but my favorite present was the surprise gift from Mom! She gave me one of her diaries that she had when she was a teenager. It's a red diary with a picture of a girl with a ponytail on it, she's so pretty! (I think the diary's probably an antique or somethin' 'cause Mom had it since she was a teenager.)
