You might know my official name as “Elita” – but my signature is (m.e.)… short for “Miss Elita” – plus I like the look of it. Of French and Latin origin, Elita means “The Little Winged One” or “The Chosen One.” Momma named me Elita because I am very fast, have better torque than a Brett Favre pass, and can run pattern laps in the back & side yards without ever damaging a plant. I also jump up and down from just my hind legs repetitively when I’m excited to see my humans – especially the ROCKSTAR human that comes around once a day to take my sister (Adele) and (m.e.) on a woods adventure. Oh, those woods adventures are SO MUCH FUN! Once we almost caught a deer! I am very energetic, quick as a whip, bouncy, an all out ball chasing, and rambunctious standard poodle dog.
I also have a few nick-names:
- “Baby-girl” – because I’m the smallest in the family
- “Monkey” – which I refuse to elaborate on the grounds it may incriminate me
- “Boston Blackie” – a reference to a fictional character who was a jewel thief and safe-cracker. This is because someone has smeared my reputation and caused my parents to believe I am a thief; so now I am always suspected when there is evidence a daring robbery has been committed.
