Hi, my name is Lady, and I'm glad you're here to read about me, my mom, and my adopted "sister" Maxie.
I came to live with my mom in July of 1993, but I was born on May 23, 1993. I'm six years old. (I'm older than my mom....in dog years, at least!)
My mom works for the Secretary of State (some people know it as the Department of Motor Vehicles.) One day, a customer brought a little Cocker Spaniel puppy into her office. My mom, of course, went "ga-ga." (My mom LOVES puppies, but absolutely cannot resist a COCKER puppy!) Anyway, she asked the girl where she got the Cocker puppy. The girl told her about the breeder in a small town south of where my mom works. That very evening, when my mom got out of work, she immediately went to the breeder's home. That's when my mom met me.
My mom met MY mom and dad, got to know them, and played with me and my sister. We were the only two littermates left, and the breeder was keeping my sister. So, I was the ONLY one left. My mom was a little hesitant about bringing me home, since I was the last one left. "What's WRONG with her?" I heard my mom ask about me! Turns out, I guess I was the shyest of all the puppies in the litter, and when people came to visit, I used to hide behind things. Ya know what I think? I think I was just waiting for the right person to come along....and the minute I saw my mom, I KNEW she was the RIGHT person!
I love living with my mom....there's nothing she won't do for me. She's the coolest!
Here are the things I like to do the best: sleep, eat, (not necessarily in that order), play with my squeeky toys, eat, help my mom when she does the gardening (I love catching clumps of dirt!) I also like to eat (have I mentioned that before?), sleep, and do anything with my mom. In the summer we get to go boating together. I also like to swim, as long as the water is warm. But, I don't like to be wet. So when I get wet, I rub myself all over anything that I can possibly dry myself on...people, furniture, you name it!
My mom says I have to help in raising Maxie. My mom has taught her all the hard stuff....sit, stay, heel, etc. But, my mom says it's my job to teach her all the "dog stuff." (I'm still trying to figure out what "dog stuff" is.....I don't think it's what it sounds like!) Anyway, one of the things I've been trying to teach Maxie is how to be a cool "cyber-dog" like me. My mom even lets her write a little on our website. I've also been trying to teach Maxie how to read and write, but you'll be able to tell by her paw-writing, that she still doesn't quite have a good grasp on it yet. I've been paw-writing for years...see how neatly I print?
Our mom travels a lot for her career, and whenever she can, (which is MOST of the time), she takes me and Maxie with her. We call it an "adventure" when we all get to travel together. My mom gets mad at hotels that don't take dogs. My mom says to the hotels, "That's okay; we'll just spend our money at a dog-friendly hotel." More than once, the hotel has made an exception for her, because when they found out she had a Cocker Spaniel with her, they just didn't have the heart to say "No." (It's nice to be soooooooo cute....people always say "Aaaaawww" when they see me!)
Thanks for visiting our web site. Please sign our guestbook. (I'm still trying to teach Maxie to read...she gets real excited when people write to us! So do I!)
My mom wants to remind you to cherish your pets...they give such unconditional love, and should be treated like members of the family (like me and Maxie are!) Dogs are NOT disposable!
