It plays in IE9 too.

She's a cutie. :)

Leenah says *wag* *wag*

Postby amanzed » Sun Nov 13, 2011 4:26 pm

Aw thanks, CelticRose. Here's her short history:

One day in 2005 when I was jogging around Occidental College, I spotted a young female dog wandering around. I spotted her first with one group of people, but then she seemed to be walking with a different group, which seemed strange. I did notice she was very cute.

Before I knew what was happening, that doggy was at my side jogging alongside me. This was fun for a few steps, but I didn't want to lead her away from her home, so I tried to shoo her away. She would run away from me, but then she'd return and continue jogging alongside me. Eventually she followed me home, one-and-a-half complete circuits of Occidental College for a total of 2 miles.

We looked for ID and tried to find a previous owner (she was already spayed and in good condition), but we never found any clues.

We named her Lena (later respelled "Leenah", closer to the original Doggish). She has been a terrific doggy ever since and she's awfully smart, with a large vocabulary of understood English: doggy, kitty, coyote, squirrel, bone, food, bath, "Do you wanna go for a...", toy, treat, sit, down, up, shake, play dead, car, Ron, Maricela, Monica, "I have to go", bye-bye, stay, this way,...

I don't think I have put a picture up here yet.

This is Ziva. She's our 2year old Boxer. We just adopted her in May.

Wow! She sounds smarter than some of my employees and even some of my customers. Congrats on having such a great doggie adopting you ;)

Awww... I had a love bird just like that named Peaches. Unfortunately, I had to give peaches to one of my employees.

Nice happy 3-dog family. Though Sable looks a little uncertain at the moment of the last photo. I think I know that look from my two doggies.

my newest companion came along to replace my 2 dwarf hamsters the last of which died in October

this one is a full sized Syrian hamster he is full of life and demands to be let out most evenings when he roars round the downstairs part of the house in his plastic ball crashing into things with a loud bang :lol: i did let him out without his ball but he hid up under the furniture and tried to rip up the carpet :shock: so now he is either on the settee with me or in his ball when he's out :lol:

but they have a short life span so when they died i replaced them with a Syrian who demands to have my attention every night at about 10 pm so at the moment its careering round the floor in its ball creating mayhem and demanding i give him some attention Image

Here;s my crew.

Stormy is a ten year old Pit Bull Doberman mix. I've had her since she was tiny enough to sleep in my shoe.

Loki is a six year old American Pit Bull Terrier. She was born three days after my son.

Chino is a five year old American Bulldog. She sings when she's happy. She's a little lump of lazy dog.

Doctor Mambo is a two year old Pit Bull Wolf mix. He was to be destroyed at nine weeks because his parents were "dangerous". He's dumb as a sack of hammers.
One of my favorites from when he was younger

Tish is a six and a half year old Blue tongued Skink, she's the self proclaimed bug patrol here.

I've also got three stocked aquariums right now, I keep African Cichlids, South American Cichlids, and deformed Goldfish.
