for a "walk" through Pasteur Park! The Mom has Dixie's 16' leash and the Dad had mine. Oh what fun when I saw my first SQUIRREL!! I started dragging the Dad across the park at top speed! Over all the bumps and dips. The Dad did his best to keep up. The Mom almost had an "accident" she was laughing so hard at the Dad lumbering after me. I have to say, the Dad is NOT as fast as the Mom over open ground! BOL


Today I Was Tagged

by my new buddy Lyle, #140078. Lyle has some of the coolest photos on his page, taken by his own personal photographer! Well, here goes answering these questions:

1. What color is your collar?
It's pretty cool--green camouflage--not because we hunt or anything like that. The day before the Mom and the Dad picked me up, they were at the Pet Supplies Plus looking for a harness and leash for me. The colors that had been already taken by the Crew: Hot Pink/HoneyBunny, Red/WINston XXLP, Blue/Remo the Red, Purple/LuckyLucy, Rainbow Stripes/Dixie, so that left Black or Green. Black on a black dog??? So, Green it is... but they didn't have a solid green collar, so we went with green camouflage.

2. What kind of food do you eat?
I was on Science Diet Adult Chicken. But I've been eating Dixie's Science Diet Z/D and it's quite good. Good for the skin. I have much less flakies and my fur is silkier and shiney. Wheat and corn free to keep the itches away. So we might be a Z/D house in the near future.

3. What are your favorite treats?
BilJac Liver Treats

4. Do you have a Valentine or significant other?
Nope. I'm still learning how to be a member of a family. First things first.

5. Do you get table scraps?
Noway, nohow. Dixie is allergic, so I can't have any if she can't...

6. What is your favorite toy?
The Mom and the Dad thought I would teach Dixie how to play with toys. But I don't know how to play with toys either!!! My buddies Rocky & Sarge sent me this really neat stuffed Jack with squeakies in all the points. But I just look at it.... duh? But the pawrents plan to keep trying.

7. When is your birthday?
I was born on February 21, 2006, on WINston XXLP's 9th birthday!

8. How many times a day do you eat?
Two. Which is great, cuz at the shelter we just ate once a day around 2pm. Plus Dixie and I have this "free feed" of dry food, but that might be going away real soon cuz I gained almost 2 pounds my first week in my forever home ;)

9. Do you have a favorite color?
I guess I'll pick green for now.

10. Do you hope all your pals put this in their diary?
Yes sirree, Burt!

Now, to tag some other pups. The hardest thing about these games of tag is finding pups to tag that HAVEN'T BEEN TAGGED ALREADY!!!! And I'm new here at Dogster, so I'm gonna think about this real hard... let me get back to you, ok?


Today I Signed Up

for school. The Dad is going to take me, and the Mom is going to take Dixie. It's a "beginners" course, so the dogs can be older than puppies. This is to "build confidence", whatever that means. The Dad was kind of surprised when the Mom signed him up. She told him "I can't take both of them myself". Personally, I could skip the whole thing. The Dad and I could stay home and get in some real "guy time". Just a thought...


Today I Chased

the cat. His name is Ozzy. He thinks he is a dog. He is very, very laid back. Ozzy was raised by HoneyBunny and Remo, two Golden Retrievers. Ozzy likes to sit real close to me and stare at me. I stare back. Then he runs. And I chase him. He gets away. Then he comes back. And sits. And stares. And runs. And I chase. It's fun. But the Mom and the Dad don't like it when it happens in the middle of the night. I can't help it if Ozzy comes to the side of the bed and waits to be chased. And I bound out of the bed and wake everyone up doing it. What's a pup to do?


Today I Went to the Vet

to check on my paws. I was licking and chewing them last week. But Dr. Mullings thought it was possibly a nervous habit I had developed in the shelter. So, paws were ok... but my ears were NOT! ARGH!!! I have infected ears. The Mom and the Dad have to clean them and put ointment in them. I yelp. And I whine. But they still do it... :(


Today I Got Wet

Hullo, all. Burt here. We went to Pasteur Park today. I got wet. It was drizzlin'. I didn't care. Dixie stayed under the trees so she stayed dry. Dixie doesn't even like walkin on the grass if it's wet. She's such a girl...


Today I Dove for Cover

The Mom, Dixie and I drove to the Nature Center for our walk today. When the Mom opened the back door of the Jeep for me, Dixie jumped in too. So, the Mom decided to let us both ride in the back of the Jeep. There's plenty of room. It worked for a while. But then Dixie scared the peep out of me. She started barking because she didn't like the look of the people in the car next to us. When Dixie starts barking all big and bad, I dive for cover! The only cover I had was down in the footwell behind the driver's seat. I wedged my body in there real tight! After a bit, the Mom coaxed me out. Then Dixie did it again... and I wedged myself back in again! (Dixie rode in the front seat on the way home.... BOL)


Today I Got Mail

Mail from our good pals Rocky & Sarge! It was exciting finding the package between the doors. The Mom let me sniff it. It smelled like Rocky & Sarge! I was very interested in what was inside. They sent me a squeaky Jack stuffie and Dixie two tennis balls on a fancy blue cord. But I don't know what to do with toys any more than Dixie does! We are two sorry sights to see. But the Dad says we'll work on it. :D


Today I Rolled

Hullo. Burt here. Today I rolled in the grass at the park. There was a very neat smell. So I had to get it all over my back. Dixie saw me and rubbed her head in the same smell. Then we chased two squirrels. Today Dixie taught me how to look out the Jeep windows. Instead of laying down and missing everything. We were very good in the back of the Jeep together. It's a start.


Today I Chased Squirrels

I found out that not all car rides are bad. There are good ones. Ones you go on with your sister Dixie. To a place called Pasteur Park. A place with lots of smells. And lots of trees. And SQUIRRELS! Dixie didn't know about chasing Squirrels. She just chased Rabbits. Today I taught her Squirrels are fun too!
