Jolene the Alaskan Malamute, the Dog of the Day
Name: Jolene
Age: Two years, nine months old
Gender: Female Breed: Alaskan Malamute
Home: St. Clair Shores, Michigan, USA
      My name is Jolene VanElslander. I am a 105-pound, two plus years old Alaskan Malamute. That might sound like a lot for a malamute but I am quite tall and lean. I am named Jolene after the Dolly Parton song which suits me because of my red hair and green eyes and I'm told I am quite beautiful. My mom tells me I am special for so many reasons but mainly because i am such a a great "big" little sister to my brother "English" who is an eleven-year-old pitbull mix and former honoree here.

     They say they hit the lottery with me because I was such a great puppy. They adopted me at seven months from someone (my original owner) who didn't want because of my floppy ears that didn't stand straight. But one month after I was adopted my right ear stood up and my parents say they wouldnt have it any other way Yes, i have a few minor flaws like biting my brothers ankles or waking them up in the middle of the night just to say hi and I don't realize my size. I feel like a little puppy but the bruises all over my mom from my gigantic paws tell a different story. I am also a bit of a health nut. My absolute favorite food is lettuce, but I love any vegetable especially broccoli and carrots. I have a TON of nicknames…My mom calls me Jo or JoJo but my dad calls me Lene or Jordain and they both call me Jodi. It doesn't matter anyhow because anyone who's owned a malamute knows it doesn't t matter what you call me - we have selective hearing.

     I've also been told my eyes are very soulful and my personality is almost human. My auntie says I'm just a toddler wearing a fur suit.
