Arrival Story:
Woof, woof I was born on a large farm in Western NY and had lots of brothers and sisters to play with. My mom and dad were real hunters and went with the family all the time. I learned to swim early. The children in the family took me out and put me in the water. I loved it right away. Some lady got on the internet to find a dog and found my family. I was flown to Wash National Airport where my new mistress picked my up. I was sooo shy and quiet. We went swimming right away and I went right in. We still go walking in the woods and swimming every day. There is so much water all around, the Bay and Patuxent River and lots of natural woodland. I am big and strong now and hope to take some agility lessons. My mistress is a retired registered nurse and she has lots of time to spend with me. Im soo happy and I love my family

I am now one and a half years old and big and healthy. I follow my mistress everywhere. I have matured and wait for instructions and can follow orders well. I did get sick from the river water but the vet, Dr Brown in Dunkirk MD took good care of me and now Im well. The summer is almost ending and I will be happy for the cold weather to return. Woof,, woof to all

lazy days

Oh im so bored. Weve been the house all day. the snow is still out there and my mistress cant walk in the woods with the snow up to her knees. Ha, we went the other day and she fell down and had a hard time getting up since I was there jumping all over her. She lost her shoe down under the snow and took forever to finally find it. Well I sure dont have any trouble. I just bound and jump in all of it. Darn on my mistress what a sissy. well Im gaining too much weight now that Im two years old. Im so big. As big as any male and now Im going to have to go on a diet. They have lots of diet dog food on the market now so I guess Ill have to eat either less food and try to get more exercise once the snow is gone. Come on Spring. Last year was so nice. It was warm most of the winter with no snow. It doesnt snow much around southern Maryland close to Washington DC so this year has been unusual for the past few years. Come on global warming. Television is such a bore when you can get out in the open and do some real things like walking and enjoying the sun peeking through the trees and watch the squirrels scamper up the trees as you come by and see the back white tail of the white tail deer as they are aware of you coming down the path. I chased one one day but he or she was long gone by the time I got to the bottom of the hill. I cant wait for spring and I can bother the fishermen on the river and steal their bait. And just run, and run, and run. come on Spriing.

Im back on dogster after a family members illness so I hope I can reconnect with friends again and also make new ones. We are ready for our daily walk but the snow here in the Washington DC area, (Dunkirk MD) is so high its up to my mistress knees. The sun is out so I hope it will melt and we can go back to jug bay for our walks. I have gained too much weight over the winter and the vet says I have to lose weight. Does anyone have any suggestions of how much food I need to lose weight but stay in optimal health. Have any of you had this problem? Too much weight is hard on the legs and joints so Ill have to lose. Im only 2yrs old and Ill be creaking like an old lady if I dont ment my ways. I cant wait for the good weather to come and its almost March. Woof, woof I cant wait to go swimming again and go for long walks There is a dog park here in Dunkirk MD now and I can meet other dogs and run with them now. Happy day to everyone and God Bless I guess we will head for the boardwalk on Chesapeake Bay since the snow in the woods is still too high.

We went to the Potomac Landing Park late today but we got there. The summer is over and the trees are rustling so lightly and talking to each other about the coming winter. I wonder if it will be cold. The leaves are getting ready to turn and then the whole forest will be alive with brilliant color with each tree showing off and trying to outshine all others. What a show they do put on. Quiteness of winter will come soon. I am going to get my nose bit one of these times when I stick it into a borrow but so far I have been lucky. I did stick my nose into a ground bees nest and got stung Thank goodness I didnt get stung badly. Boy did I run away but I still insist on sticking my nose into the ground when my sniffer tells me there is something going on. My mistress quickly gets me away now and we keep walking and dont tarry. So now we walk faster and I have to keep up and cant get into too much trouble. The river water is not so warm now and is better to swim in and the weather is turning colder now which is nice. The fish are jumping high out of the water and I went out after one but it came down and made a big splash and disappeared. My mistress is teaching reading at school a few days a week so I hope our visits wont stop. I had a good time listening to the trees today and the quietness of the woodlands and Im awaiting my next big adventure. Woof, woof with happiness
