Lives of the Monster Dog


We know you love Ramona. We know that she is 80-85% of the reason you shop at Uncharted. So here is a gratuitous fan page for the fluffy white monster dog to answer all the questions everyone asks (and a few that no one asks but I'm sure you were wondering). Photos will be added regularly.


Ramona Facts
  • Ramona's full name is Ramona Flowers Quimby Age 8 Adams McAdams McSwain. She has many nicknames including Ramarshmallow, Ramonster, Monster Dog, Husker Doo, Butt Dog, Dog Butt, and Don't Eat That.
  • We adopted Ramona from PAWS Chicago in February 2012. She was probably born sometime around June 2011.
  • Ramona is a Siberian husky. Though solid white huskies are uncommon, they aren't exceptionally rare. She is quite small for a husky, so it's possible that she is a mixed breed, but we don't think so.
  • Ramona's favorite books are Call of the Wild, White Fang, Lives of the Monster Dogs, and Dewey the Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World, which she thinks is a cookbook. She likes about 3/4 of Old Yeller and Where the Red Fern Grows.
  • Ramona's favorite food is kale. Swear to god.
  • Ramona supports the Logan Square Dog Park and wishes them the best of luck. She would like to support them financially, but she is a dog. If you would like to support them in her stead, you can get all the info you need at the above link.
  • Ramona enjoys day care and grooming at Logan Pets, fancy food and antlers from Kriser's, and top-notch medical care at Furnetic.
