hi bloggiepals!

The Fourth of July is herah! well, was herah... oops.  i wanted to play Frankie Fruter's Name Game!  does it count that i started this post on July 4th?

My 4th was pretty quiet. after a morning walkies, mom left me home to run/walk in a 10K Harvard-Pilgrim event at Gillette Stadium (home of the supahbowl champs, New England Patriots).  Norweed's mom talked her into it because the finish line was at the 50 yard line. runnah's got to woot woot it through the tunnel, under a big football helmet and cross the 50 yard line all while being shown on the jumbotran.  whew... glad it was her and not me!

of course after her funtimes, i had to be lured outside in the sweltering temps to go to the park. that nite, the fireworks & Boston Pops were enjoyed safe & soundly from the cool sofa. zzzzzz... may have missed some of it.

watch my aunt bee's video of her fabulous finish-- (norweed's mommie)

Ok, now fur playing  Frankie Fruter's Name Game!

 Most of woos are probably familiar with my story.  i'm a brooklyn girl found as a stray in one of them junkyards.  my rescuers named me Shasta.  Hoping not after the soda-pop. maybe they were thinking of the mountain, Mt. Shasta or the name can mean a daisy. huh.

but. noooooo.. mom thought i didn't seem like a Shasta and wanted to change my name.  being  akita, her first search was fur a japanese name. see akitas are a national symbol of japan and were used for bear-hunting, so KUMA (japanese 4 bear) came to mind. then she also LUVS wolves.. and thought of the Native American name, TALA (meaning wolf).  

Guess what woo get when woo put them togethah??  TULA
howevah, that doesn't mean everybody calls me by that name! 

i've been called:
monstah, tooolie, cookie-face, sleepy monstah, muscle butt, tm,
miss tula, rowdy dog, and my grad skool classmates gave me a middle name- tula sue. 
i don't mind.. really. well, sometimes. 

one morah from khyra- sistah tula

thanks fur letting me play~
scratchies to woo all!

I love your name, Tula. I was thinking you were probably named after Tallulah Bankhead. I like your mom's thinking, though!

Antie Bee has MAD videoing skillz! I can't even walk, talk and video!She can holler, hoot and run all while videoing. AMAZING

I think your name suits you perfectly Tula. I'm sure glad you got to wait for Aunt Dee under that bed instead of running the 10K with her....that would be way too much work! And please, don't go hunting bears any time soon. I don't want to worry about them hurting you.
your cat pal,
p.s. I really like your idea about a roof party with 5 guys burgers & fries!

Given that you were rescued in Brooklyn, you were almost certainly named after the soda. But it could be worse, they could have named you Doc Brown's Celery Soda instead.

We loved Norwood's mommie's video! It's not everyone that gets to run through the helmet! How exciting for her!
You are definitely a Tula! We can't imagine you with any other name!

Love ya lots

Waiting for Dee? Gosh, I hope your mom made it to the finish line. That is just crazy all that running about in the hot sun.

Thanks for sharing your story. I am liking muscle butt myself.

We sort of like Toolie. And you are so NOT a Shasta:) Thanks for sharing your name story. It has been fun learning about so many pups. We also didn't know about your early days - hope they weren't too rough for you.
