The beginning

Bella: Wow, it is fairly easy, just follow directions! If mom can do this, then I think even Whoopi could do it.

I was born in PA and Mom picked me up right after Christmas when I was 4 months old. LONG drive back for my first time in a car, but I only threw up once, it was a gallon, but only once. I have been told that I am beautiful, smart, funny and bit of a dork.

The dork part I have been assured is only due to my being a baby and that I will out grow it. I really hope so, some of the silly things I do, like falling down stairs or wipping out while Im running are not very fun.

I have also been told that I am for "Protection" and that is why I am going through the Schutzhund classes with Richard Shook. Besides my Dad, he is the most amazing man! I get all silly and wiggly and whine when I see him because we have so much fun together, I hear im pretty good for my age.

I think tracking is really cool and obedience is ok, but the Bite Work is a blast! Thats when I get to get personal with Richard. He is German Shepherd guy, but Im winning him over to the Dobie side too.

The Wicked is in the shop getting new rear brakes and the gas tanks cleaned, along with a bunch of other stuff. We won't be able to cruise to MI with it cuz it wont be ready. IM SO BUMMED! I love sitting in the dinette seat and watching traffic go by. We are usually in the right hand lane, Dad says it safer there. And the 74 FJ40 is in Texas still.

So I guess we take the XC90 to the family reunion. Oh well, its such a big back end, I dont mind.We came home from Orlando driving the Wicked and pulling the 2000 lb car hauler and never knew we only had front breaks. It stopped great, even with Dad driving like a nascar driver. But when the guys put it on the floor of the garage, it slid and that made them check it. The rear brakes were disconnected and capped off. Must be good front brakes, huh?

Whoopi hogs the hump where the engine is in the front, warm and cozy and right between Mom and Dad. So after trying several spots, I decided I liked the dinette best. I can sit up and look out, or pout and put my head on the table or lounge back and put my head on Dads seat and snuffle his hair or ears, (I love surprising him that way) or just crash and nap. It's a pretty cool place to hang out.

Whoopi: Silly puppy! Of course I get the cozy warm spot, I am the Queen after all. Bela has been here a couple of months, sheez, I always get first dibs, will she ever figure that out? That's why I sleep in bed with the folks and she gets her bed on the floor! Where she belongs. She is so darn big, she would knock me clean out of the bed if she were allowed up there. I am a 15 yr old Jack Russel. Not the usual, bouncy barking chasing ball type. Not at all. I honestly don't get why any one would waste that much energy chasing something you can not eat. My mother picked me out when I was only 2 days of age and she is fond of telling people how lucky she is to have chosen me.

I have had 3 litters of wonderful puppies. But...the first litter I was not thrilled with. They were breech, so they hurt, they were slimy and stunk and they had the indecency to suck on me. I tried to get rid of them, but Mother stayed with me and made me spend time with them and nurse. Being a momma turned out to be ok and by the third litter I was an old pro and didnt even need my Mother, she was busy riding so I went and had all six in the shavings pile. I showed her didn't I?

We have had an amazing 15 yrs together and I plan on being around for another 6 or 7,as I want to beat that silly old Dachsund thing that holds the world record at 21. And I will, just wait and see.
I will say the Wicked was a great idea for our adventure. I even hang out in it during the day in the drive way, so I can get away from that dang bird screeching. I know Mom loves her, but I don't get it. Yes she is pretty, (don't let her know I said that please), but she poops a lot, destroys things and lets out the worst screams! I personally think she is useless. AND I think Dad does too! I wish she were staying in NC.

Puppy: "HI"! My print is in bold orange, cuz Sun Conures are a tad loud! And, I like to be different. I am funny and personable and very lovely!! I am yellow and orange or at times, orange and yellow with a green tail and blue tinged wings and tail. I think I am a hoot! And demand a lot of attention, which I get.

I will NOT stay in NC, I will be coming to Belize as well. I can not wait, I will actually see some of my heritage, well, kinda sorta, and I will probably be the prettiest bird in Belize.
