Meet our beagle/coonhound mix Phoebe Jean. She is named after Phoebe on Friends. When we got her she smelled HORRIBLE! Jason went up North to Booneville, NY (for real!) and rescued her from the barrel she was living in with her pup siblings. The owner threw raccoon pelts at them for food...thus the smell. We were trying to think of a flower name like Rosie, Posie, Daisy...but as I held her and sang "Smelly dog, sme-ll-y dog, what are they feeding you? " PHOEBE popped in my head and it stuck! Jean is after me, of course, my middle name!
And there is sweet, beautiful, horribly naughty Olive, our 1-year old lab. She chews everything, is not good at staying house-broken, barks alot, chases and nibbles the girls' feet, and pulls me down in the lawn when I walk her in snow...but she loves me more than she loves anyone else! Now I know what the term "follow you around like a puppy" means...she is always by my side.
