What kind of dog is Allie, and how old is she?
Allie is a 5 year old Maltipoo.
What is Allie's story? How did she come to live with you?
I was living alone at the time and decided that I really needed someone to keep me company. I couldn't take our family dog, Taylor, away from my mom. So the search began! I needed a good "apartment" dog that could be left alone and not require a lot of exercise seeing as how I did not have a yard. After TONS of researching, I found the perfect match for me. I quickly found a breeder nearby and brought my little Allie home!
How did Allie get her name?
The movie "The Notebook" had not been out long and was my favorite movie at the time. I got this bright idea that "wouldn't it be cute if I got a boy and a girl and named them Allie and Noah!?". Of course I wanted a little girl dog first, the boy would have to come later. =) Allie also goes by the nickname of Allie-oopers!
What are Allie's favorite things to do? Any silly things she does or crazy quirks that make her unique?
Allie loves to play! I really think she has gained more energy as she's gotten older! She loves her squeak toys, her absolute favorite is her olive. It has been sewn up a few times to keep it alive! Allie loves her little, but big, sister Daisy. Daisy is a one year old black lab who has really helped Allie stay young and active. Allie's signature "thing" is walking on her back legs. It's like she's dancing. If you have anything in your hands (especially food), she'll follow behind you walking on her back legs to see if it's anything for her! She can walk so long that way that it's almost scary, she looks like a little person.
What makes Allies so special to you and your family? Particular times she's really "been there" or special things she's done?
Allie is everyone's favorite "person" in my family. She is taken better care of than I am!! She has the sweetest personality and can make anyone smile. She can sit and wag her curly tail, turn her head to the side and look at you so sweet that you'll melt. But she'll soon trick you and jump up to give you a slobbery kiss! The whole purpose of getting a dog of my own was because I was by myself a lot. Thanks to her, I never feel like I'm alone. She has been one of the best things to come into my life. She always knows just what to do. If I'm happy, so is she and if I'm sad, she will come sit next to me just to be there. She is my very best friend that always makes everything better!
