Dinah

Dinah

our sweet, crazy, smart {at least to me =) } doggie is now is doggie heaven. ...with Avery's fish Bryce said. Paul and I got Dinah in the late summer of 1998. We saw a flyer at a gas station near Paul's school about some dogs that needed homes... so we drove to the house/farm to see. Paul saw a cute little puppy named Lulabelle and we had to take her home. The name was not a fit...so we named her Dinah {somehow came from Diner}. She was so hyper and nuts running around, jumping so high. She was a ball! No one was quite sure what she was, but she has some whippet and beagle in her. So glad we had her in her puppy stage in the college house we lived in that's for sure! I'll never forget when she ate a box of moon pies or nibbling on the batteries. Oh how she loved to watch other dogs on TV. She was our first baby... and then when Bryce was born, Dinah never bothered him or messed with his baby toys. But she never quite took a liking to him either. Dinah just wanted to be loved on by adults rather than the kiddos. She wasn't good to take on walks~ oh how I tried when we lived in our apartment when I first started teaching. But she was there to greet you when you got home her tail waggin'. She loved to curl up next to you or rub your legs wanting to be pet. I think she thought she was part cat. =)
She was really a sweet dog...I miss her tons.
Dinah & Avie love you Dinah!
