'ohana


after reading abb's latest post about the dawg show and its winner rufus i thought i would share my puppy with y'all.

we adopted 'ohana when she was a little over 6 weeks old from the shelter and at 3 years she's still a puppy. a mix of black lab and border collie, she is a handful, still pees on the floor, and loves my silent prince who feeds her under the table.

'ohana is a hawaiian word that means family. if you've ever seen the disney movie lilo and stitch you'll be familiar with the word.

the line from the movie is: "'Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten."

there have been plenty of times that i'd like to leave her behind: like when she ate one of the shoes i had purchased while shopping with the pobble in boston (man, those shoes were fabulous!) but 'ohana is my puppy and i love her. and i know that she loves me.

and she is way cuter than rufus!

God's peace y'all! Woof!

I think I can vaguely recall that movie... ;-)

Your dog is cute, and I'm glad you didn't leave her behind!

Rufus has such a weird head. I saw him at the dog show on Thanksgiving, or one like him, and the announcer said that breed was designed for underground digging and tracking, and we all said, "That accounts for it" almost in a chorus.

OMG! Sooooo cute!

You can just feel the personality pouring out of that face.

Thanks for posting that.

Now I have to find a picture of Betsey the sorta-beagle...one where she's not attacking C-Money's dawg.
