“That a Girl Kelly”

Snoop’in Rudy

I can’t help snooping!

Rudy Here. I know, I am not supposed to be a snoop, but I found this story in his printer.  He wrote it about his first dog as he was reflecting on ME!  Here it is.  

Kelly was our very first dog.  My brother and I were in grade school, and named her after a dog that was the main character in a Disney Show or Movie called “That a Girl Kelly”.  The dog in the movie was a German Shepherd like Rudy.   Our Kelly girl’s mother was a silver poodle and we do not know who or what kind of dog was her father.  Many people thought her father was a wire hair Dachshund.  But in reality, I don’t remember ever seeing a wirehair Dachshund in our small town. 

KELLY GIRL

KELLY GIRL

She was black with silver in her breed and eye brows.  As she aged she got more silver all over.  She loved to chase rabbits.  She was small enough to go into the culver drain under the driveway to flush them out.  We were always worried she would get stuck, but she never did. 

When we went to Mayfield’s hill to sled ride in the winter, she would come along with us.  She loved being outside.  She would run around while we slid down the hill, walked back up pulling our sleds only to repeat our trip.  Kelly would follow and then run off to sniff out a rabbit.  I never wanted to come in.  We were out so long one time that Kelly’s pads started to bleed.  She was alright; she had simply been out to long on the ice. 

Her mother, Pamper, live a few houses from our.  Kelly girl would go there often to visit her.  Later, we moved to the other side of town. We had to keep Kelly tied up because she would wonder off.  When ever she got loose, we knew where to look because Kelly would always go back to the house where she was born to look for and visit with her mother.  I thought she had a homing device in her and I guess she really did.  Kelly could always find her mother from either of the two different houses we lived in on opposite sides of town.

OUR SNOOPY

OUR SNOOPY

Kelly was our Snoopy.  We loved Peanuts and Charles Schulz.  Now there is a free online Peanuts comic link http://comics.com/peanuts and a museum link http://schulzmuseum.org 

Our Grandpa built Kelly a dog house that she stayed in year round.  She liked to sit on top of it like Snoopy.  She had her water and food bowls outside like Snoopy too.  We put straw in the dog house for her bedding.  When I got cold outside we put even more straw in the house so she could stay warm.  She loved the extra straw; and would go inside and walk around and around in circles to make a nest.  She slept nose to tail in a ball and kept quit warm.  When we first got the dog house, I climbed inside with her.  She loved it.  My parents did not know were I was and looked inside the dog house and there we were.

We walked her all the time every day.  As she got older Kelly liked to rest in a lawn chair.  Also, she loved to ride in the cars and swim in farm ponds.

Kelly loved to dig and got dirty.  She hated to take baths which we gave her during warm weather.

KELLY'S PICTURE FRAMED ON A TREE BRANCH

KELLY'S PICTURE FRAMED ON A TREE BRANCH

I had an old Brownie Camera from my mom.  I learned to take pictures on it and Kelly was my main subject. Here is my favorite picture that I cut and glued onto a cross section of Christmas tree branch I thought made a good picture frame.  This is the oldest picture of Kelly we have from when joined our family as a 6 month old puppy.

I find it ironic that we named Kelly after a German Shepherd and now have a German Shepherd Dog named Rudy!
