MONDAY: MEET MY CABINET

Mom and I are happy to present a new series "MEET MY CABINET'  which will
air on Mondays.  We have 10 questions we will be sending each and every member of out cabinet
we hope you find the questions interesting and informative.

Today we are featuring our 
COMMISSIONERS of all things DOWN UNDER

LADIES MOM AND I THANK YOU FOR THE EXCELLENT, WELL THOUGHT OUT ANSWERS 





1. Please introduce yourselves, tell us your age and a very special trait.
My name is Daisy, I'll be 10 in March.  I'm the top dog in our house.  Next we have Bella who will be 4 this year, and last is Roxy who will be 2.  I, Daisy, am the peace keeper in the family and keep the others in line.  Bella and I are both typical scotties.  We are aloof with people and will only have a cuddle on our terms.  Roxy, on the other hand is anyones.  She loves everybody and thinks they want to be kissed and cuddled.  Bella and I are dignified--Roxy is....well....Roxy.
2. If you had an alter ego who would you be?
We like being who we are and don't really have alter egos. 
3. What do you like best/least about where you live and why.
We live in a city of 40,000 in New South Wales. It is mostly a farming area, and our city provides the services needed by the outlying towns and villages.  There are loads of places to walk in our area...we rarely do the same walk every day.  And our favourite places are anywhere near the river.  We love getting wet, the sand and mud.  Also, there are lots of birds to chase.  If we could change one thing though, it would be the bindiis (burrs).  They get tangled in our furs, stuck in our paws and are a pain--literally.  We'd love for them to disappear!
4. Who are some of the peeps/furiends you'd like to meet and why
You ask who we'd like to meet. There are so many. Basically, we'd love to meet any of the Blogville residents!
5. If you could give one piece of random advice what would it be?
The piece of advice we try to live by is that quote from 'Auntie Mame'...."Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death"  As Mame says, 'Live, live, live'.  Enjoy the day-to-day stuff because the big things you wait for, may not happen.
6. What do you do for fun?
For fun, we just run, chase birds, investigate, keep track of what's happening in the 'hood, play bitey face and snooze.  We're always up for treats.  (Bella watches television and Roxy plays with squeaky toys.)
7. What is the first thing you do each morning?
First thing very morning, we race outside to see if our borders have been breached during the night and then go sit in front of the cabinet to get our breakfast bones.  Then we wait for HER  to take us for our early morning walk.
8. What is the first thing you notice about new furiends?
The first thing we notice about new friends is their smell.  Friendly animals give off a friendly scent.
9. Tell us how you came to live in your family and how you got your name.
I, Daisy, was a meant-to-be dog.  Scotties are hard to get in Australia, and females almost impossible.  But when HER mother died, SHE wanted to spend some of the inheritance on a female scottie.  SHE was going to Sydney for the weekend and just happened to find an ad for scotties--almost unheard of.  SHE arrived on Mother's Day and I chose HER.  Daisy was HER mother's favourite flower, so that's how I got my name.  I'm the Memorial scottie.
Bella was 5 months old when she arrived so she kept her name.  Roxy was a rescue pup and her litter all had names beginning with 'R'.  She was 5 months old, so she kept her name, too.
10. What is your absolute favorite food?
Our VERY favourite food is FISH!  We love sardines, fish skin jerky, or any other kind of fish, cooked any way. ( Roxy loves to roll in dead fish at the river.)
We would like to finish by saying we hope we will be worthy of the trust you have placed on us.
Daisy,  Bella & Roxy
