A Friday Sort of list . . .

Miss Kylie has tagged me for a list of 40 things that will
tell you about me. Since I am only two years old, I don't think I have that many things yet. So I will share some with my Mom and maybe we will come up with 30 if you are lucky (or not!).
1.This is what I looked like when I lived in a cage at the slammer for three months. (See below)
2. My Mom came out to volunteer and she looked at a lot of dogs. But she took me, without even taking me out of my cage, or anything. She just talked to me and knew we was meant for each other. Then number 3 is that when I came to her house, I didn't want to ever go outside again. It was October and very nice, but I thought if I just stayed on her bed, I would never get stuck in the slammer again. We worked things out though! hahaha! 4. is I love squeaky toys, you all know that. 5. is that I am sweet on Dannan, did you see him run, he goes a hundred miles an hour!. 6. is Khyra the Sibe is my pal and my confidant.7. is I love raw ground beef or beef bones or cooked beef. 8 is I love to play in the snow.
9 is , lets see, what is 9. It could be that I am not what I thought I was, Miss Kylie's Mom thinks I am part Flat Coated Retriever and part Border Collie and I like the sound of that. Miss Kylie and I look just alike. 10 is I love my human brother and sister inlaw even though I hardly get to see them 11. I am scared silly of storms. Thats about all for me! Now I will tell some things about my Mom. She just had her 70th birthday last November but she says she only feels that old when I am pulling on the leash! haw! 2. She is funny. 3. She got her first Dog when she was only one year old as a present from her Grandpa and it was a Boston Terrier someone named Stubby. Stubby was her best pal until she was 12 and he was hit by a car. She said it was like losing her brother.Thats why she loves Joe Stains. 4. She grew up in Minnesota as an only adopted kid (like me!).5. She worked at lots of different things but her last job was a volunteer administrator. 6. She is and always has been a Democrat (I think thats good, is it?). 7. She loves to sew, knit, with quilting being a big favorite. 8. When she came home 18 years ago (from North Carolina) she hoped to find her Dionne Qintuplet Paper Doll book still there and that it wasn't is her life's biggest disappointment. (I don't get that at all.) 9.She is very deaf and relies on captioning for TV and movies.(This is why I am a VIP to her, because I can hear things for her and tell her with woofs what it is! I love that I can be of help to her.)
10. She loves movies of all kinds but is partial to independents and foreign films and her DVD player is one of her favorite things. 11. She is the most disorganized person in Minnesota. (I don't get that either.)
OK, we are done with the list because we are tired of it and so we had some pictures ready but Blogger is not co-operating so we will put them up tomorrow if we can. I hate this picture of me in the slammer, but you can see by the blog I am way prettier now. Pawed by me, Stella, for me and Mom.
Kisses, Stella

Wonderful learning more about woo and your mom - our mom is old too but a wee bit younger than yours. Mom loves to crochet and would love to know how to quilt. We love a lot of the same things as woo, including Khyra!!! Your Mom has done a pawesome job with woo, look how much more beautiful woo are today, but woo were still very pretty in the slammer - glad woo got sprung.

Woos, the OP Pack
