Quick Bio:

November 2nd 2003

being near me or my husband, playing with Sammy the cat and cocoa our feist.

rudie is afraid of loud noises and thunder, vacuum, loud noises, hates getting nails clipped and is terrified of taking the bath.

Favorite Toy:
his purple monster he has had since he was 3 months old and his ugly chicken toy

Favorite Food:
he likes whatever we are eating, I try to limit his people food though.

Favorite Walk:
Rudie likes to run his hill and since he doesnt leave the yard we can allow him to run without leash on as long as we are outside with him.

Best Tricks:
do not know of any except hiding when we are gone.

Arrival Story:
Rudie was born on November 30, 2003 in Bidwell . My sister in law was guardian of Rudies parents and when he was 3 months old he became mine. The first dog we had in over 12 years. As his 7th birthday approaches his personality is changing. He has become grouchier as he ages. He would never bite anyone but he does let you know if you are disturbing him or invading his space. Normally his days now consist on sleeping under the couch or bed. He loves our nephew and can play with him for hours but anyone elses kids he hides from.

Rudies heritage is of 7-8 breeds of dogs that we narrowed it down to. Since our family owns most of the dogs involved we have compiled a list. Chihuahua/chow/retriever/beegle/te rrier/lhasa apso

I dodged another close one. I'm beginning to think I have some feline DNA in my blood and I have 9 lives. Maybe that's what attracted the once crazy cat lady to me. My mom loves me and having us around but I question her ulterior motive. Maybe she thought I fit in with the cats because I am a cat, who can really figure out humans and how they think?? I am able to RUN, Jump and play again. Last night I was able to sleep on mom's feet again, I know she can't move when I'm there but she loves it. I don't think she sleeps good unless I pin her down.


Thank You Dear Friends for your Prayers and Gifts

My condition as my Mom would say is precarious. I'm having good and bad days. The big E word has come up again but I'm not ready to join Cocoa at the bridge. God wants me with my parents for a while longer. I can't let this arthritis get me there sooner than I need to go. Sorry dear sister but Mom needs me! My hips are giving me problems and my right foot. My balance is off from the pain but I can walk again. I ran a little today and checked my trees. I found some messages on the trees needing returned. I returned a ton of pee mail. I started eating again and I swear I been reincarnated as a pig because I can't get enough. I had a huge breakfast and even ate part of my brothers. I think he's just as happy to have me back on my feet as I am. We even walked around the yard together, talk about adventures in babysitting. My brother has the attention span of a gnat. If I haven't told you that already, I'm telling you now.

I could complain about him forever!!!!

I want to thank you all for your prayers and warm thoughts. Thank you Cooper and family for Birthday picture. To Patch for Gold Bone and to Petey and Abbey for the kind words. I am so blessed to call you all friends.

Rudie had a couple rough weeks and seemed to be better on the 29th, eating, drinking and going out several times. He responded well with what we had been doing at the time. The last couple days his condition has deteriorated. I'm calling his vet in the morning to try to get him in tomorrow afternoon or Friday. Right now he's sleeping and not crying in pain as he was earlier. He refused food and water today. I pray whatever hurts him is fixable. If there's nothing we can do I will ask the vet just to make him comfortable and bring him home so he can be with us. I love my old boy. He's like a child to me. I got him when he was 12 weeks old, Friday he will be 9. He's been a loving and faithful companion for our little family. He was with me throughout months of therapy and college. I don't know what I will do without him, if this is it. I pray God looks after his miracle and gives him peace.
