I was watching the movie Ice Castles on HBO when she started jumping…she failed, however, to get my mom’s attention. I knew this would happen, even before she was born. I’m referring to my pet’s jumping act when seeking attention… That’s why I picked the name Vanilla Bean.
Many often asked why the odd name for a puppy. I often replied that her name is descriptive — her coat is predominantly white and she acts like a jumping bean when excited. So there… She somewhat inherited this from Princess (who happen to know how to stand on her hind legs when seeking an audience).
