Azalea and Movie of the Week

There are certain times when I really wonder where Azalea came from and who she lived with for the first year of her life. If you didn't know, Azalea is our dog.

Precious(Azalea) the day we first saw her

We got her from the SPCA 3 years ago. All the other dogs were barking up a storm, but there sat Precious (that was her name before we changed it) curled in a ball in the front of her cage, with the sadest eyes. I saw her and fell in love. I showed her to Joe, so then we asked if we could go out and play with her. Joe rolled a ball along the ground, she watched it like, "What do you want me to do with that?". She was potty trained and knew how to sit and heel. We talked about it and decided to get her. That is when the adventure began.

We have been through a lot with her - kennel cough, anxiety, intestinal parasites and really bad allergic reactions to flea bites... Which brings me to why I thought to blog about her. The other day she went to the bathroom on the floor(which she doesn't do hardly at all), so when I saw it I yelled "DOG!". She went to the side door and was cowering. She wouldn't come to me even when I had a treat to give her. So that got me thinking... I wonder if that's what her old owners would call her when she was in big trouble. How did they treat her? Was it an older person who raised her? She's so low key, it wouldn't surprise me. Was she an only puppy? Where did they get her from? Why did they give her up? But I guess we'll never know. I don't know why I even think about it.

So, onto another topic. The movie of the week. We have another edition of "What does a ____ say? According to Elijah" Today's edition is "The Cow".

That's all from me for now. I have to attempt to make 4 cards and a scrapbook page before next Tuesday all while looking for the perfect black dress and chunky jewelry for my costume for the dance show on the 20th (You would think I love procrastinating by how much I do it.). So you'll probably be hearing from me again pretty soon.

Azalea is such a good dog! But I'll remember not to call her that! As for Elijah - the boy is brilliant (and very cute too)!
