   Leave a bone for St. Augustine (Augie)

August, Augie, Hey Dog Dog! (those kids!)

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-pound dog-service dog -dog rescue

August 8th 2006

Children & the teens too, but love the children in the family to play with me and run with me and let me sleep with them!

Hey! I got to see Mom & she has new dogs! What's THAT about? Was I gone that long?

Favorite Toy:
Frisbees, tennis balls, Nerf balls, squeaky toys, shoes....

Favorite Food:
Partial to rabbit right now & birds & squirrels since my friends taught me to hunt.

Favorite Walk:
Spelunking in an old cave system, woods!, mountain trails, just through the neighborhood with my kids.

Best Tricks:
Leaping straight up in the air for food. I should have been an agility dog, but maybe there's still time. Kids wanted frisbee contests. Hmmmm. Sounds good.

Arrival Story:
Originally I was trained as an assistance dog for Mom & Dad who had repercussions from their illnesses, but although I helped them out it was very clear to them my loyalties were divided and I was ambivalent meaning torn between helping them and protecting the kids I so loved. Mom & Dad fought a great deal and the kids fought with them and I would get inbetween and growl. Family issues. Marital crisis. Everything was just falling apart. While they were working out their marriage problems (Dad said he was the one heavily to blame -- yeah I know Dad...) I was sent away with the children & teens to stay with family. Our family was dissolving, breaking apart & I was unhappy. Then I noticed those wild dogs running around where we were staying & one day I just took off and ran away with them those Carolina Dogs. // There's a story behind my first picture--the kids would find Dandelions and blow on them and wish for me to be found & returned home, wish for their parents to be reunited, wish for their family to be back together & for me to be a part of it... Mom would tell them not to get their hopes up that she did that all the time blew on Dandelions & didn't get her wishes. Oh yes you did Mom! You just decided on alternative courses of action which is fine! Choice is good & be careful what you wish for cause it might come true!

Mom & Dad made up stories for the kids, told them I would probably never come back and that I was traveling the country and then the world much like Flat Stanley only I wasn't flat and I was hopping trains & planes & hitching rides. I wasn't on Dogster any more -- Dad thought I never was but the kids said I was indeed that they put me there, pooled their money, which was allowed and wasn't barred. Lost & Found and my entire story will go into my journal I guess & maybe the kids would like to add their stories about me. The family is working on getting back together. Carolina Dog project one of many found me & said can you believe it? that me and a few others were too social with humans & so endangering the other dogs, so I'm with a foster group of Carolina Dogs that make too much contact with humans & working on getting back home... Soon I hope! // Mom & Dad & the kids have been reading about a dog name of Baxter & hoping that he might come home soon & thinking of me. Baxter -- our prayers are with you friend (I'll have to make friends with you!) cause it can happen bud, can come true. Still in our prayers!

By the way -- I'm a mutt!!! And proud of it too! Yes, I'm part Carolina Dog & part Basenji but I have some German Shepherd Dog to me too & it shows in my face! Yes, I have German Shepherd blood though I'm not a purebred or GSD aristocracy like August Max & Marcus Maxx but Mom & Dad certainly have no problem with that one & say that mutt covers a lot of territory & they like mutts & so do the kids. They also love the purebreds so they cover a lot of territory too. The kids still want a Shiba Inu a "fox dog" but doesn't Josey Wales look a bit fox like in his photos? So does Jesse James! No Shiba Inu blood but Jesse is part JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) & part Basenji & Dad so thinks of Basenji's as smaller dogs & they're not always & vary in size. Jesse is middling and he has been found too so don't know who the devil those other people had, but welcome back Jesse James & Outlaw will just have to be jealous!!!! Yeah we all know you're Dad's golden son & favored fur child buddy boy, but you just remember the kids especially the teens adore the rough Outlaw Josey a real dog's dog & the GSD's after they have him down in submit position as they just know they're the ALPHA of the dogs that they adore him too and just love to play with him!!!!
WELCOME BACK JESSE JAMES!!!!! Know that Dad is thrilled that you're still alive & well & that (heh heh heh heh heh) you ran away with the Carolina Dogs too!!!!! So uh, Dad???? Is it still MY fault???? Hey for all you know I was taking off after them..... Hmmm????
ARRRRROOOOO!!! AAAARRRROOOO!!!! Augie from the Carolina Dog Project (Jesse James is with a third very strange pack & you thought my group was wierd?!)

Hello The Outlaw Josey Wales!!!! Having fun gunslinging with the Carolina Dog Project???? No more about me taking off with the Carolina Dogs cause where are you exactly? Hmm. Extending neck & grrrring. Knew that you was you Outlaw! You bit me in the hind side Outlaw & I owe you one for that! Knew I was catching glimpses of you from time to time there bud, just knew it.... Dog Project has got you on their list now budro. You're not missing any more, just a matter of catching you & extracting you from that dog pack since some of those dogs probably won't be leaving. Having fun? Still mad at Dad over all of those unfavorable comparisons to his beloved Josey Wales because you're so much bigger than he was & taller & just very, very different & incredibly domineering thinking you're as big as those GSD's August Max & Marcus Maxx & trying to pick fights with them. You'll have to cool down toward them bud cause they can eat you! They're the guard dogs my friend so just remember that one. I'm sure they'll be in touch soon via paw mail or email or diary to give you some doggy grrrr's too & doggy lectures. But all the same Welcome Back to Planet Earth Outlaw Josey!!!! I'm sure you'll share your travels through the galaxy with us soon.
AAAAARRRRRROOOOOO!!!!! Augie from The Carolina Dog Project


Thanks for the Birthday Presents & Peter Pan

Thanks for finally remembering my birthday my woofday to one of the Carolina Dog Projects & to my family. Really like my photo with the birthday cake & balloons & presents & niced stuffed teddy bear, hopefully a squeaky one, for me to shake & tear apart & enjoy playing with & tearing apart (sorry kids & sorry about your stuffed toys that I ate on back & your other toys that became dog toys -- will either have to keep them out of reach or mark them in somehow not the way dogs mark things & teach me those toys are yours! As far as us dogs are concerned anything left down on the floor are our toys!) Thanks to Dion the CatDog, Pinto Paint, & family for my cupcake that replenishes that I can share with the Carolina Dog pack. We love sweets when we can get them though people fuss about dog having sweets.

Know some of the older kids & adults remember the beloved Peter Pan from their childhoods although they're far too old for Never Land now or some are, so I'm Peter Pan especially for anyone younger in the family to protect you from Captain Hook for now just in dream form but when we're back together in reality. I will keep Captain Hook at bay & keep him away from your slumber world which is very close to Never Land that dream time place. What do you think of me as Peter Pan, the dog Peter Pan? I can fly even though I'm not an angel dog in this outfit with just a little magic fairy dust and some happy thoughts! So think good thoughts skyward about being back together with your family and remember to say your prayers! Meditate on it which means focus on it, think about it, see it in your head & feel it in your heart & wish for it so that we might all be back together as soon as possible.
From the Carolina Dog World, Augie

** Thanks too to Dion & family for the baseball in recognition of my being a Daily Diary Pick! **

Am I forgetting to thank anyfur? I'll come back & add it here if I have. Good Night & Sweet Dreams & Doggy Licks kisses to the kids & teens.
