Hey Everybody,
My name is Bear. I am just a cute lil American Eskimo. I came to my furever home from Indiana. This lady was visiting her friend and they saw me at a flea market (I didn't get any on me though--no fleas on me). The lady bought me and took me to my new mama in Michigan. I guess that makes the lady my Aunt.
At my mama's house there are 3 kitties. I keep trying to play with the kitties but they just don't understand how puppies play. Spot and Baby hiss at me and run away. Ingen just cries for help when I am chewing on her head and then mama makes me stop playing with her.
I don't get it. How do kitties play. I sure would like to play with the kitties.
Mama takes me over to Schotzy's house. Schotzy's mama is my aunt. I LOVE MY SCHOTZY. We play and play, then we rest, then we play some more. Now Schotzy knows how to play with a puppy (that is because Schotzy is an 11 month old puppy- Westie Terrier). Schotzy used to be alot bigger and stronger than me but I'm catching up to her. I am getting bigger and stronger all the time.
Sometimes mama and I go visit Dixie. There is a picture of her on my page. She is a BIG dog--at least to me she is a big dog. I am afraid of big dogs but I kinda like Dixie. I like to chase after her but when she is chasing me I yelp and hide. We don't wrestle yet, but maybe when I'm a big dog, I won't be so scared of her.
I am beginning to lose my teeth and I am chewing EVERTHING I can get my mouth on. My favorite thing to chew right now is ice cubes. I chews and plays and chews it til there is nothing left, but it makes my mouth feel better.
Well that's it for me today. I will write again.


Going for a walk

Hey Everyone,
My mama is soooooo proud of me! She says I am so smart. We go for walks almost everyday. I know to stop at the corner and sit down until mama says "GO", then I run across the street. I am on a long leash (a retractable leash). Mama tried to use a little leash but I would just sit down and not move. When she used the long leash, she would just walk far away and so I would run to catch up to her. Now I am very good on our walks.
Yesterday, we walked a long way and then I got to play with another puppy. His name is Bernie and he is 8 months old. Mama's friend says he is a Pug. I liked running and chasing Bernie. He was kinda afraid of me, even though he is bigger and older than me. Bernie never had a dog friend but he does now. I tried to play with him like I do with Schotzy but he didn't play back like Schotzy does. Maybe if I play with him more times, he will learn how to play with dogs and not be afraid of me. That would be fun, cuz I likes to play with other dogs, as long as they are not too big. I'm still a little guy.
I am getting bigger. When mama got me I weighed only 4 lbs, 4 oz. I now weigh 9 lbs, 8 oz. My ears stand straight up like they are supposed to. I can run and climb steps. I can even hang on to toys when Schotzy and I are playing. She used be able to just pull toys away from me, but not anymore. :o)
Today was a very busy day. First I visited with my cousin Dixie. We played outside and then relaxed inside her house. Mama came and then took me to visit Schotzy. Schotzy and I played for a while outside and then we went into her house and played. Schotzy wouldn't play with me. I guess she was tired, so I moped under the chair until mama came and got me. Schotzy and I played while mama visited with Schotzy's mama. Then mama and I went to the store where they let me come in. Mama put me in the basket thing and I was very good boy. I even got a treat! When I got home I see that we have a new couch. Now, when did that happen?
Mama says that I am getting better at doing my "puppy biz" outside. Mama doesn't get upset with me when I do puppy biz inside because she is learning about puppy potty training too. She never had a puppy. She always had grown up dogs. Sometimes she doesn't know that I am telling her I have to do puppy biz. We are learning all of this together.
I really love my mama. She takes me places. She doesn't get too angry with me even though I am chewing everything and I still make puppy biz mistakes. She lets me sleep with her. We go visiting my friends. She tries really hard to be a good mama. I think she is doing ok.


Puppy Biz

Mama says I am getting better everyday about doing my puppy biz outside. Even if I have just a little puppy biz, I do it outside when mama says do your puppy biz.
Yesterday when I went to Dixie's house, her dad told my mom that I did my puppy biz in the house. He wasn't upset-he knows I am a little guy, and they weren't big messes. Mama went "oh, I forgot to tell you. You have to take Bear outside and tell him to do 'puppy biz'." So now mama made sure to tell everyone to say "puppy biz" to me when I am outside so I do my business outside.
I don't know where mama came up with that phrase. The next door neighbor thinks it is funny but it works for mama and me.
It's early so no much to write. Maybe more later.

Oh it was a fun, fun, fun weekend. My mama and I stayed over at Schotzy's house. Dixie stayed with us too. It was soooo much fun!!! Schotzy and I just played and played. I even played with Dixie even though she is a big dog and still scares me a little bit. Dixie and I was tugging on a rope. I think she wasn't trying very hard cuz we tugged and tugged for a long time. Then she got excited, barked and dropped the rope, which scared me so I dropped the rope too. It was fun though, playing with that big dog.
At nite we all sleeped with mama in Schotzy's mama's room. I stayed in my crate cuz mama was afraid I might chew on the bed and let all the air out (It's a sleep number bed--VERY EXPENSIVE!). Dixie sleeped next to me on the floor cuz she doesn't go on furniture and Schotzy sleeped with Jen and the kitties. Schotzy has 2 kitties that live with her, Tig and Angelo. They don't like puppies. Angelo just growls and hisses when I am at Schotzy's house.
Mama was pulling some weeds at Schotzy's house and I was helping. Well, I bit mama's finger and made it bleed. Mama wasn't angry with me but boy did she yell, LOUD! I didn't mean to hurt mama, it was an accident. These darn puppy teeth are really sharp.
Mama took me (only me, not Schotzy or Dixie or the kitties) to the vet. It seems I have worms-YUCK! They gave me some medicine while I was there and I have to get more in 2 weeks. They also shot me 2 times. I was a good boy. I didn't bite or do anything to the lady that shot me. She tried to play with me after she shot me but I wouldn't play with her or take her treats. I let mama pick me up but I wouldn't cuddle with mama either. That was not nice what they did to me. It hurt. I am not mad any more, but I don't wanna go back to that place again, they are mean to little puppies. They did say that I am 10.2 lbs. now. I am getting to be such a big boy!
OH, mama got me a KONG toy. She puts peanut butter inside and puts it in the cold place (freezer). It gets really cold and then I eats the peanut butter out and chew on the toy. Mama says it will make my mouth feel better cuz I am teething. I don't know about that but I really like that peanut butter stuff. Mama is trying everything so that my mouth will feel better. She tries really hard to take care of us, the kitties and me.
I am getting better about not chewing on the little kitty so much. I do like to wrestle with the big kitty though. He is bigger than me. I will run, knock him over and then we wrestle. I don't bite him, we just wrestle. I don't know if he likes it as much as me cuz he runs away as soon as he can, but it is so much fun. (From the mama-it kind of looks like cow-tipping. Spot doesn't get hurt, just annoyed)
That's all for now. I have to go chew on something. My mouth is bothering me.


A day with me-Bear

Oh boy I have been busy, busy, busy! My mama hasn't taken me for my walks because it has been cold and rainy here. I have soooooo much energy. I don't know what to do with myself. I've been chasing the kitties. I have been eating mama's stuff (when she is not looking-when she is looking I am chewing my stuff). Yesterday, mama found the phone cord in pieces. She didn't catch me but she knew it was me. I wonder how she knew it was me.
I have been getting better about doing my puppy biz outside but....I am still doing it inside too. Anyone have any suggestions for my mama to help me with this?
I am still very good on our walks. I stop at the corners and wait for mama to catch up. Then I sit and wait for her to say "GO". I do that almost all the time. Sometimes I forget to sit and I am jumping up on mama. She just waits and then I remember to sit.
I told you about how I played with Dixie, the big dog. Well, mama and I went to the park with Dixie and her dad. Dixie likes to RUN at the park. She runs very fast and very far. I followed her as best I could until she got too far away and then I would run back to where my mama & her dad was walking. After a little while, Dixie would come back to the people and then run off again. I don't like to run as far as Dixie but it was fun trying to keep up with her for a little while. She would run to the top of this hill and stay there. I would run up the hill then run right back down to my mama. I kinda like running up and down the hill! I don't fall like I used to. I guess I am getting bigger. Mama says I am getting bigger every day.
Oh, the worms are all gone. Mama still has to give me the medicine just to be sure but, so far so good. I don't want to have to go back to that place where they are mean to puppies and give them shots.
Well mama says that we are going for a walk. It is cold but not raining and she says I am making her crazy.

I have been soooo good, my mama says she will keep me! She is just teasing. I stole her heart right away and I'm not giving it back. I have done all my puppy biz outside--mama finally understands me when I am telling her "I have to go outside".
We went for a walk and my mama fell down. I was scared for a minute, cuz mama doesn't usually just sit down for no reason when we are walking. She was ok, though. She hurt her hand and I keep forgetting that when we are playing, so he haven't played alot. We do play 'get the toy'-she throws the toy and I get it and bring it back to her. We do that all the time when I go outside to do my puppy biz. Sometimes I tell mama I have to go outside, just so we can play 'get the toy'. She doesn't know that cuz I always pretend I am doing my business but....I think she is catching on to me.
Ingen and I are go outside buddies. She goes outside with me all the time. When it's time to go back inside I help mama by chasing her to the door. Mama really likes my help. I have gotten really good about not chewing on Ingen's head. I just bark at her now. I wish she would play with me. I really like to play.
I play with the big dogs through the fence. Charley runs with me and Cherokee barks all the time. I run and bark to play with both of them. I think I would be afraid to play with them without the fence though. They are awfully big and I am still little.
Oh, and I have been real good about cuddling with mama. She picks me up and we snuggle. I don't always chew on her, like before. I do love my mama but I also really like to chew on her too. She doesn't get upset unless I chew too hard-then she yelps really loud. I am learning and she is being very patient with me.


My BEST friend/cousin Schotzy

Mama took me over to Schotzy's house. Ohhhhhhhhh we played, and played, and played. I had sooooooo much fun. When I first met Schotzy I was just a little guy but I am getting bigger. I am almost as big as Schotzy, now. (Schotzy is a Westhighland Terrier and just turned a year old). Now I can do almost all the things that Schotzy can do. She is still a little stronger but I am still growing so.....we'll see. Schotzy has this toy she calls a wubba. She loves her wubba. Well, I get the wubba and we fight over it. She used to be able to get it from me easily, but it's not so easy now. woof, woof. I love going to Schotzy's house! I have so much fun! Schotzy's mama doesn't bring her to my house cuz it's too hard for her mama. That's ok, cuz I like car rides.
I have been VERY good with doing my puppy biz outside. I only had 2 little accidents and they weren't my fault. Mama wasn't paying attention to me when I told her I had to go outside, but as soon as she saw me starting to wee in the house, she jumped up and we went outside. She is learning. She is just a little slow sometimes.
Yesterday, Ingen and I was outside. She was looking at something in the grass, so I went over to help her get it. I was just trying to help her but she kept backing away from me, like she didn't trust me. Hmmmmm, I guess it will take a little while before we can be friends. Maybe chewing on her head made her afraid of me. But, I haven't chewed on her head for a long time.
I tried to play with her today but she just kept running away, really fast. She even went through the gate and sat out in the front. I will let her tell you her side of the story.
I would really like to be friends with Ingen, but sometimes she bugs me. She will sit on MY mama's lap and take all of her attention from me. One of the good things about Ingen is that when mama is eating she begs for some and mama gives her a little of the food. Well, I have learned from Ingen, so no mama gives me a little of her food too. See, we are 'go outside buddies' and 'begging buddies'. Now if only we could be real buddies, everything would be perfect.


My BFF (best fur friend), Schotzy

Hey all,
Mama finally got a picture Schotzy on my page. I met Schotzy even before I met my mama. Schotzy is my bestest friend and my cousin (since Schotzy's mama is my mama's sister).
I LOVE to go to Schotzy house and we play, play, play!
When I first met Schotzy, I was just a little 4 lbs. furball. It was easy for her to win at all our games but, now I am almost as big as her. I weigh 13 pounds and I am now 5 months old. Schotzy weighs 19 lbs. and is one year old. She doesn't win all the games very easy. I am onto all of her tricks. She is very smart and will have to learn new tricks to win at our games. Besides I have learned a few of my own tricks. Like when Schotzy doesn't want to play anymore, I start playing her with her WUBBA. Schotzy LOVES her wubba. When she sees me playing with her wubba, it just makes her crazy. She wrestles and tries to get the wubba from me. I run away, then we tug, and tug, until she finally gets it back. I'm still just a little guy and Schotzy is stronger but not for long. CUZ I AM GETTING BIGGER!


A Dog's Prayer

A Dog's Prayer
When God made the earth and sky,
The flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals
And all the birds and bees,
And when His work was finished
Not one was quite the same.
He said, "I'll walk this earth of mine
And give each one a name."
And so He traveled land and sea
And everywhere He went
A little creature followed Him
Until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth
And in the sky and sea,
The little creature said," Dear Lord,
There is not one left for me."
The Father smiled and softly said
"I've left you to the end.
I've turned my own name back to front
And call you dog, my friend."

I was cleaning out my computer and came across this--I thought I would share it with other dog-lovers.


From the "nervous mama"

Bear is going in tomorrow to have his operation. He is 6 months old and it's time to get him fixed. It won't be a simple procedure though. It appears that he only has one "grape". Apparently the other one is in hiding, so the vet will have to find it to remove it. POOR LITTLE GUY!! I know he will be just fine. I, however, am a nervous wreck. Bear is the first puppy I've ever had. I've always had adult dogs and they were already fixed when I got them. He will probably have to stay over-nite. Since he's come to live with me, WE have not been apart for that long. I schedule my day around him (when he needs to go outside, play time, walks, visits to Schotzy's). We go everywhere together (except to my job). WHAT AM I GONNA DO?!?! I am already suffering from separation anxiety. I am just being a nervous mama. He will be ok.
