Birds in trees. Playing ball. A bit reserved. Called a problem child by past people -- shy.
Strangers. Cats in his space. Trash not in the trash can unless it's his fault.
Things I'm not supposed to have like paper towel holders.
Cat food -- just about any kind. People food in the can like corned beef hash. Eggs. Chicken.
Anywhere without cars! Cars freak me out!
High jumps. Leaping fences. Begging for treats by leaping and jumping high in the air. Jumping on the bed like a small child.
Hi. I was called a figment of Dad's imagination. Dad kept getting sick after he had spinal meningitis and he was calling for Josey so some friends of his looked through Basenji and Carolina dog rescue groups for the perfect dog one that looked like Josey Wales cause Dad wasn't getting any better. One day they found me and they took me to Dad and he warned me not to get too close that I might catch it, so I was a little distanced at first. He thought I was Josey come back to him and said it was like O. Henry's The Last Leaf later a necessary deception so that he might live pulled by his friends. I am missing right now, but Dad has some leads on me. I was either lost by those hired to care for me, a dog service or stolen by them & Dad hates to accuse when he doesn't know but he's angry because they lied to law (maybe to cover up for losing me, don't know) and said that I never existed & then that I was Dad's dead dog.
Okay so prayers work. Dandelions wishes with the fluff blowing in the breeze work. Wishing on the stars works. Flicking eyelashes at the moon and wishing on the moon works. Keep wishing. Keep hoping. Keep praying. Dad says I'm irreplacable though he might get another who looks like me and if I come home then I might have a twin. Well, wait & see what happens.
Was once lost, but now am FOUND! FOUND!

Yes, yes I know that the pandas don’t match my sunset & woods, but I’m kind of a misfit myself though I won’t be any more when I return home & that Mom promises & she got Dad to feel sad about how frustrated & upset I was because I didn’t feel accepted. Yes, I know I should still be well behaved but everydog else seemed to be getting the love & not be & I just felt like I didn’t belong, so I get the beloved frogs & beloved pandas for my page. One at a time & maybe I’ll even have a Halloween page with it raining frogs cause I know how very much the boys love their frogs & how they go on about the frogs being endangered & needing someone to make sure that no species of frog no particular group goes extinct. I just needed something to make me special to the kids as all the other dogs even the angel dogs have a place & I never really felt like I did though Mom wouldn’t let Dad rehome me probably because she’s seen too many Dog Whisperer episodes & the one that seems to be the problem often isn’t the underlying cause of all the trouble plus Mom was seeing the other dogs doing things. Dad went from being too strict about dogs to being too lenient & to spoiling them rotten & to adopting an old attitude of oh dogs will be dogs & it’s the people who need to adjust, so the kids were miserable & ahem, SOME of the dogs were running the household & that’s not right, it’s just not right because the people are supposed to be the pack leaders & we can still be happy but we have boundaries like fur children should have & we’re not people & still part of the family but really the children should come before us. The other dogs too, (not mentioning any names am I? oh yes I am: Josey Wales the II & Jesse James were spoiled rotten little fur children although Josey the II who confusingly started out as Jesse James really did start out as a good dog, a true little angel -- that is until he realized he had his tail wrapped around Dad’s little finger, that is until Jesse James the devil that sits on the left shoulder showed up. Jesse will eventually be a good dog when he comes back, but he was such a destructive force of nature that it’s very fitting that a tornado was chosen as his page background. He could destroy just about anything especially if he wasn’t supposed to have it & was told NO! NO Jesse that doesn’t belong to you & that meant oh yes, I must have that toy right now! Love Jesse dearly & he will reform
Just want to be loved for me even if I did grow bigger than I was supposed to grow, even if I wasn’t a cute little thing like either of the Josey Wales ones, even if I had to learn that I had grown & was being too rough. I didn’t know my own size or strength & wanted to get up in Dad’s lap the way I had when he first got me. So great big Panda hugs to the kids & look at all the beautiful Panda’s sailing down my page into the woods to play in the last of the sunlight before going off to forage for some nice bamboo which hopefully is hidden somewhere out in those woods. Know how much you love Pandas and that’s why I’m so happy that I have them on MY page! Tail wagging. Just want to be friends with you, you know. If I play a little too rough, you’ll just have to let me know.
Panda Bear Hugs to you kids, Outlaw Josey
Oh & doggy pawsitive thoughts heavenward for you Dad. Still love you. Power of the paw to you & all who are ill.

Greetings from Augie's world from me & the real Jesse James who doesn't have a page yet! Now Dad wants to know what dog those people have especially as they never checked back with him for the vet's records the way they said they were going to do. Finally, Dad & Mom & teens & kids & young adults in the family all maybe now you can take my puppy picture off as the first picture on the page! I've grown & you had bigger photos of me before so where are they? Soon hopefully you will be able to take new ones! Know for now that I am not absolutely thrilled about being found! Guess where I am? In Augie's World but not running with his pack & Jesse James sure ain't running with mine! Just having a good old time a real blast & I'm way up in the pack hierarchy too & here comes those damned Carolina Dog people trying to catch me to put some stupid collar on my neck after tricking me with food! How DARE they! Know you snitched Augie, just know you did! So I snitched on Jesse James! ARRRRROOOOOOO!!!! AAAAARRRRROOOOO!!!! Hey kids! Waving. Agnes & Josey Wales & Babykins you're angel dogs so maybe you flew to where I was & saw me & whispered in our peoples' ears.... Did you? Oh, I have to leave the pack, have to leave the pack, oh no have to leave the pack! Don't suppose I can bring the wild dogs with me? No? Guess Augie has already asked you that question. Well, bark at you later. Hunting time! See some nice mice & moles that look quite tasty...
Bark @ 'ya later, Outlaw Josey
!!!! Keep looking for Baxter cause you never know -- wrong location for us, but he could still be out there somewhere...

Feel strange attending a swim party when I'm lost & not found yet although the search for me continues. Am I like Augie & with a group of Carolina dogs somewhere? Do I have a new home? Not via the various searches -- no new home yet no new foster so I am lost & where was I? Off in the woods like Baxter? Felt strange attending a pool party @ Kitthaven Estates when I'm lost & not yet found. Showed up, ate ribs & steak & BBQ beans & coleslaw & potato salad in virtual computer box world. Jumped in the pool. Worried that I might look too much like that evil most foul opportunist Kevin Federline who for some reason reminds me of Clair's boyfriend on the first episodes of Six Feet Under & of that terrible Canadian comedian Scott Thompson of old HBO series The Kids in the Hall which somehow went from funny to gory & violent which was bizarre from a supposed comedy show. No, says my person, you don't look like Federline in that water picture in the ocean because you are either a little dark tanned or a little black in that photo & no way is Federline black in the least so no one will think you look like Federline, Outlaw Josey. Don't know why my person has become so utterly paranoid with me about avoiding any & all photos which might be mistaken for that terrible Kevin Federline but with a dog's face, but just lately that has happened like Federline might suddenly spring back off the fame board & into our faces at any moment in the near future. Oh please no, let that not happen random sparks within the stars -- please let him fade into obscurity....
Still Lost, Outlaw Josey
