More About Little Ol' Me
How did I get my name?
- In 2007 my Humans looked up most popular female baby names and Emma was on the top ten list. They had never known an Emma but they liked the name. In the first few weeks of living with them my being was obvious. I would sit unattended in the front yard and go no where and watch the passing parade and then as if I had contemplated my move thoroughly before I had I would go do one action at a time before return to my favorite spot in yard. Every action I do is with this same slow contemplative nature, they called me Zen.
How was my birth date determined?
- Arriving at the shelter on 10-21-2007 the shelter veterinarian determined that I was 4 months old making my birthday June 21st, 2007. 2 weeks later after my adoption my new Humans took me to my now primary vet and she determined that I was about 4 1/2 months old. Okay so everyone was on the same page! It was until the following year that we realized my birth date was the summer solstice marking the first day of summer!
What breed of dog am I?
- I am a Black Labrador / Great Dane mix. I am a spayed female and 106 pounds. To Labrador people I look like a big Lab who is really lazy and has no Labrador traits. To Great Dane owners I look like a small Dane with some Labrador in me. I think I look like a Labrador and act like a Dane. I do not like water, Frisbee or any other game of chase. I like to sit on people, lean on people and I don't need much exercise. Breeders Veterinarians and Doggie DNA test all came up with the same combination. My Human says I am surely part Donkey to because I tend to just lay down when I am done, and sometimes I am done in the funniest places.
Do I have any special markings?
- Yes, I have a perfectly shaped downward facing arrow on my chest. My Humans say I am in presences as I am in nature a truly downward facing dog!
