There’s a new lady in my life. She’s a little bit smelly and she occasionally poops on the floor and she has a beard. Meet Moria, my sweet new doggie:
I adopted Moria just over a week ago. She’s a year and a half old, so she’s mostly house trained, but she’s still got a fair amount of that puppy playfulness that’s so fun. She’s predominantly Brussels Griffon, although she’s listed as a mix on her adoption papers. But that adorable beard and those big, expressive eyes are pure Brussels Griffon!
I’ve been intending to adopt a pup for a couple of months now. My frequent visits to the local Humane Society proved fruitless, but when I saw this sweet girl bashfully staring at me when I stopped by an adoption clinic at PetSmart, I was instantly taken with her calm demeanor and charmingly silly appearance. I think she looks like an Ewok; others say she’s more akin to a Wookiee. Whatever Star Warsian species she resembles, she’s just plain cute… especially when she’s panting:
If you’re wondering why I named her after something from Middle Earth and not the Star Wars universe, well, female Ewok names are awful! And she’s a bit like a Dwarf, what with the beard and all, so I thought Moria was pretty fitting. The jury’s still out on her middle name, however, so feel free to share suggestions!
Expect to see more of my girl’s bearded face in upcoming posts, and check back soon for a giveaway!

Congratulations, Mommy! She’s so beautiful, and I love the name. So, are you baking her treats yet? :)
Thanks! And I haven’t baked her treats yet, but I’m very excited to do so. I might have to include dog treats in one of my MoFo posts… hehehe.
Moria’s a sweet little thing, even if she does look like a cross between an ewok and a wookie, and I like the name…you can call her Morie for short…or of course Pantyface or Sweetiepie or whatever else comes to mind. Congratulations!
Thanks, Zoa! She’s incredibly sweet and I’m already in love… hehe.
