Hi! I'm Allie Mae and I'm the Pawsonality of the Month because at my foster home I'm the Queen Bee. Foster mom calls me the matriarch, but I'm not sure what that means, so I prefer Queen Bee because that means that all the other animals look up to me and have to do what I tell them. Fortunately, I'm a benevolent Queen Bee and usually don't boss them around too much. I do like to make sure that they respect my special place and don't go there and touch any of my stuff. I gather all of my toys and my favorite things and put them in my special place and sit with them all around me just like a Queen on her throne. When any of the other animals are silly enough to try to touch them, I give them my little warning buzz and they understand that the Queen Bee is saying Buzz off! And they do.
I used to live on a farm and I stayed outside all of the time. My family loved me and I liked being outside, but now that I'm a little more mature, I find that being inside is a pretty great place to be. For one thing, it doesn't get too hot or too cold, plus it's where the people hang out. I love being with people and putting my head in their laps. And when my foster mom comes home at the end of the day, I'm the first one to greet her using my special full body wag. I sleep right next to my foster mom's bed at night so the first thing she sees in the morning is me all wiggling and wagging.
The only thing that I don't like about living inside a house is slippery floors and stairs. I can hippity-hop up about four steps, but it isn't my favorite thing, so I'd much rather live in a house that has as few stairs as possible. And while I love nice soft carpets, I hate shiny floors. A Queen could slip and break a hip you know. So I refuse to walk on them and foster mom has laid out queenly red carpets all around the slippery areas (okay they are really just throw rugs and they aren't red, but a dog can dream can't she?)
Of course just because I'm the Queen Bee, don't think that I'm all stuck up or that I don't get along with the other dogs here at my foster home. I like just about everybody and everything. I like going for walks around my realm (some people call it the neighborhood) and I just adore it when foster mom brushes my fur. And the thing I really love is when it's time for the royal dinner. In fact, I love it so much that my majestic backside has started to look a little more king-sized than queenly, so foster mom and I are working on that.
Well, that's me Allie Mae, queen of all that I survey (hey, that rhymes). I love people, love my fellow canines, love walks, love car rides, love brushing: I love just about everything. So if your kingdom has gotten a little boring and lonely, what it probably needs is a Queen Bee to sweeten it up a bit.
