Ferret Dance

Fed Up

My Mom and Dad don't feed me from the table all that often, but when they do, it's usually yummy stuff. My brother gets crab and lobster sometimes.

This is a Public Service Announcement from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Great Britain. It applies everywhere I think.

My Name

My name "Tegan" comes from the British Science Fiction Show Doctor Who. It's been my Daddy's favorite show for a very long time. He says it's a way better show than Star Trek or anything else out there. He said it's been on for 45 years now, so they've got a lot of catching up to do!

Anyway! Do you want to know what the funny thing is about my name? While it’s my Daddy that’s the Doctor Who Geek in the house, it was my Mommy that chose the name for me! When my Mommy was watching a "behind-the-scenes" episode of the new series of Doctor Who with Daddy, she found out her favorite companion, Captain Jack Harkness, had a dog in real life that he had named Tegan. She must have liked the name!

I don’t care why she chose it, but I’m glad she did! It’s a very good name because everyone hated Marshmallow. Even me. Can you believe they named me Marshmallow?!?

Anyway, in the show, the character of Tegan Jovanka was an Australian Stewardess. (They still called them stewardesses in 1981.) Tegan was stubborn, loud, direct, and not afraid to speak her mind. JUST LIKE ME!! She even described herself in the show as "just a mouth on legs." JUST LIKE ME! She often argued with the Doctor. JUST LIKE I DO WITH MY BROTHER GROMIT THE CAT, OR ANYONE WHO TRIES TO TOUCH MY BUTT!

Tegan Jovanka first appeared in the 4th Doctor’s very last episode. He was the Doctor that wore all those really long scarves. He then changed into the one who wore cricket clothes.

There have now been six other Doctors since him. The newest one, #11, starts his shows in the Spring of this year. So as you can probably tell, my Daddy is really, really excited. Yes, my Daddy really is a Who Geek. Woof!

My Story

I was born in Kentucky about two years ago. At least that's what my favorite vet Doctor Dave thinks. Anyway, I was abandoned at a kill shelter where it was discovered that I was very, very pregnant. That was mean of my Kentucky family. But what did they know? They liked to eat deep fried squirrel for dinner and drank Colt 45 Malt Liquor. They also left me chained to a tree all the time. They were not very good dog parents.

I was lucky that I was a pure breed Eskie, so the nice lady at the shelter called my friends at ILLINOIS HEART BANDITS who arranged a rescue pick up for me. I slept the whole trip next to Ray. Louise said that they kept hoping I would keep my legs crossed and not have the puppies on the journey! Ray brought me to the state of Illinois where I gave birth to six puppies!!!

Can you believe six puppies came out of little ol' me?!? They were Huskie-Eskie puppies. Two of them looked like me and the other kids looked more like a Huskie. I was a very good mom to all my kids. They were all adopted out to families and I hope they're doing as well as I am.

Oh, and here's a picture of the other dogs my Kentucky family owned. I didn't like any of them!

Hi! My Name is Tegan!

Hi! My name is Tegan and this is my blog. I'd say "woof" but I don't bark much.

Well... I say I don't bark much... but I do if you're the mailman, the paper delivery person, the noisy Chihuahua at the party monkey's house, my nemesis across the way who comes near my backdoor, Grandma and Grandpa C, and Grandma and Grandpa S, Trick-or-Treaters, People Walking in MY park, neighbor dogs walking in MY park, oh all right... I bark at just about everyone.

I like to chase my cookie-ball and my brother Gromit The Cat. This will be fun.
