Update From Noelle

Mom is still busy getting ready to move - she said she found a house for us! - so today she is letting me post, and I am going to answer your questions that you asked from the last time I posted.

Noelle, I had no idea you liked to stand on the coffee table! Isn't that glass slippery? Oh, and I luvs that second picture of you with your ears all magnificent-like. That was after you puts on make-up, right? I'm sorry you got dumped on the streets but it all worked out pretty darn good, huh?

Hi Mayzie! The glass is not at all slippery, unless Merlin someone knocks over a cup of water on it right before you jump up. Thank you for noticing my makeup in that picture - yes, I worked very hard to look that good! And I am very lucky to have been rescued. I know it makes my mom sad that she gets calls about more dogs like me and Ziggy and she has to say no because she doesn't have any more room. So I'm just glad I got here first, and I work hard to make her happy that she rescued me.
This is how you do it.

Was it Tripoli who beat you up?

Sigh... I hate to talk about this, but I must admit it. Tripoli the three-legged dog really is a super-dog.  Otherwise a three-legged dog would NEVER have been able to embarrass me that way. He went to another foster home for awhile, but he came back yesterday. Mom hasn't let me be in the same room with him yet, but I made sure to remind him who is boss around here from the other side of the door. Three legs or not, next time I will show no mercy! Oh wait... mom says I have to be nice. Okay, but he better not try to beat me up a second time!

miss noelle,
first off, i looove your name cuz it's my mama's name, too. same spelling and everythingie! :)
second like, how do you stand on the coffee tables and stuff without breaking them? that is super impressive. i think you should give an informational on that.
oh, and don't those twizzlers get stuck in your teethies? that's what my mama always says when she eats them.

Hi Booker Man - Don't worry, standing on tables is easy. You can jump on and off of them and stand on them, at least until your mom or dad notices you. If you're deaf, you even get a few extra seconds of ignoring them since you can pretend you don't notice them yelling and running toward you from across the room. If you time it just right, you can jump off right before they get there so you can act like you don't know what you did wrong and you can get away with doing it over and over. It does help to be deaf though.

I'm pretending not to look at mom.

Oh, and Twizzlers don't get stuck in my teeth, but that's because I practice chewing all the time. It really helps. See the little black pieces of rubber all over the floor in the above picture? That was where I just finished chewing up yet another dog toy - my second one that day. Its all about practicing - you might suggest that to your mom.

Hi, Noelle- it's great to learn a little more about you. I love your crazy ears! Did you know that I have dogs with crazy ears, too? See, now we have something in common!

Hi Pibble - I didn't know you had dogs with crazy ears! I bet they are super-smart though. I'm pretty sure the height of a dog's ears above his head is directly related to how smart a doggie is. If a bassett hound could teach his ears to stand up in the air, he'd be the smartest dog in the world! Even my mom says she can't argue with that.

Lola said...
Noelle, this is all most interesting. Standing on the coffee table is an unusual hobby, but that's what makes the world go 'round, right? You do seem to be just as lovely as your Mom has always said you are. Thanks for sharing these details. It's always fun to learn more about furiends.

Thank you Lola. I think that while some rules are important to follow, many rules are just made to be broken. In fact, you might consider rule-breaking as just another hobby.

I can't believe she was dumped as a 3 month old. When did they find out she was deaf? I guess it's not really any different, as long as you use the hand motions, but I think it intimidates people.

Hi fellow pitties... Mom says the shelter knew I was deaf right away. It's pretty easy to tell when I can sleep even through a loud shelter environment and can't hear someone call me. Maybe for less social dogs it would be harder to tell, but as you know most of us pitties want to respond to human attention right away, so if someone calls us and we don't answer unless we can see them, that's a pretty good indicator. And really being deaf isn't much different. Most doggies learn sign language easier than they learn human words. So mom says the only hard part is getting my attention if I'm not looking at her. And they actually make vibrating collars for that, but I told mom I don't need a vibrating collar. I try to always just keep one eye on her in case she wants me! Unless of course I'm standing on a table at the time.

So that's all of the questions I had - thank you for reading, and hopefully mom will be back soon to tell you more about everything going on at our house. In the meantime she is trying to post quick updates on her Facebook page, so those of you who are on Facebook, feel free to stop by and say hi.

sooooo glad to hear from you. Can't wait til you are back with us every day.

Pibble said...

You found a house! Now, the fun part... the move...

Thank you for answering our questions, Noelle. It's true that dogs with crazy ears are much more special!

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow we are so glad that you found a house! We hope it is a cool one!!

And that was so great of you to answer all those questions Noelle! We never would have thought it was weird to stand on a table - we didn't realize that dogs don't do it all the time - but then again, we don't really have any here, so we just go by what we see at our dog friends blogs!

Two Pitties in the City said...

Thanks for the feedback, Noelle. We're excited to hear more about your new place!

Kari in WeHo said...

Thanks for the answers :) Can't wait to hear about the new house

Lola said...

It's wonderful that you found a house so fast. It must be a lot of work getting ready to move, but exciting, too. I can't wait to learn all about your new place.

wags, Lola
