Gotcha Date:

Birthday:
March 1st 2007

Likes:
Any type of ball! I am OBSESSED with playing fetch, despite the fact that I am not a good catcher. I continue to get better and better.

Pet-Peeves:
The doorbell and knocking. I hope to get better. My hoomans are working with me.

Favorite Toy:
My favorite toys are hooman tennis and Kong-tennis balls and stuffed animals. I am VERY good and I do not destroy the stuffies!

Favorite Food:
If it goes into my mouth and is edible, I like it. I LOVE canned pumpkin, salmon, Cheez-Its, and shredded cheese.

Favorite Walk:
I like to go to parks where kids are having sports practices as there are SO many people to greet!

Best Tricks:
I shake, beg, dance, high-five, belly-up, spin, here, dance, and roll-over. I can walk on my hind legs forward and backwards. I also do butt-tuck runs and side flips. I can do so much more, but I don't wanna brag.

Arrival Story:
My new mommy and daddy adopted me from the local no kill Humane Society on 11/07/2009. I had been there for almost 9 months and had a lot of people looking at me, but no one seemed to want me. Maybe it was because I was VERY hyper in my kennel. My energy may have scared a lot of people off. I was simply trying to show people how much fun I could be, but I guess they didn't like it. My new hoomans came right to me and wanted to play with me. I knew that they were the ones. I tried to tell them that I would calm down once I got into my permanent home...and I did! I have been the perfect little angel. I took to my new life very fast and my hoomans say that I act as if I have been in their lives forever. They tell me everyday how much they love me. I am so glad that someone finally thought I was worthy of going to their home and into their hearts. Thank you mommy & daddy!

Bio:
I was a stray, and because of that, my past is unknown. I LOVE people! I go to doggie daycare once or twice a week and have lots of fun. My hoomans were unsure about me going to daycare because of my breed. But, they talked to a few daycares and they both have many pits enrolled. One even trains pits and many of the trainers and behaviorists have pits, so that is the only place I go now! I love to give all hoomans kisses, but not all hoomans give kisses back to me. Why? Me and my hoomans have completed several different obedience classes. It isn't because I am not obedient ('cause I am!), but they want to keep me sharp, introduce me to new dogs and situations, and just keep me on the up and up of everything! I have breezed through all of them. I know so much more now, and I will continue to learn even more! I am a very smart and obedient doggie, so I know I can make my hoomans proud no matter what I do. I am also getting ready to begin agility training with the hopes for competing. I am also working to be ready soon to take the Canine Good Citizen test and the American Temperament Testing Society's test. I am beginning training to become a therapy dog.

Make the Ice Melt!

WOW! It has been months since I have been on dogster.

Mother Nature has been SO mean to my state (and not to mention so many others) here in the past few months. Right now, the temp is about 10 degrees (with windchills in the double-digit negatives), yet it is sunny. It is very confusing to me. When I see sun, isn't it supposed to be warm? But it isn't. It is so cold out, it makes my feet hurt when I step outside the door! But, I don't care. My pawrents have to practically drag me back in the house after I potty so that I do not get frostbite, 'cause I want to stay out there and play. It is that cold and that dangerous. I am learning to deal with not playing outside. Thankfully, we play hard in the house, I get to go to daycare a few times a week, and we go to pet stores and to visit family. So, I am not that cooped up, but it sure feels like it.

Last week, we had an ice storm, and we have about 3-4 inches of ice on the driveway and the yard! Other than the cold, that is why I cannot go out to play. The ice on the yard is too dangerous for me. We got about 5 inches of snow this past weekend, and I went outside for a few minutes while my pawrents were shoveling the ice driveway, and I sheared off some of a pad on my backfoot just walking around on the snow and ice.

The good news...we are having a heat wave this weekend! Mommy says the temps will be in the 40s and pushing 50 degrees and we can spend a lot of time outside! We can take lots of walks/run, though with the melting snow and ice, it will be sloppy. I hope that maybe by the middle of next week, I can play in the yard again as the ice will have melted. Paws are crossed!!!

 

Where is the Rain?

Wow. It is so dry here in Indiana! We received some rain yesterday, but the grass didn't get all green and pretty. Why is that? I miss the green grass. It is much softer on my footsies than the brown dry stuff. My front yard is pretty green, but I play ball in our large backyard, and there isn't much green back there. My hoomans got tired of trying to water the backyard because it is sooooo big.

Well, I was supposed to go and try out my paws at dock diving, but it was cancelled. Can you guess why? NO RAIN! The water levels in the lake are too low to be safe for us doggies. My luck, I would have bonked my head on the bottom. That is just the way I roll. Maybe another time.

Despite the lack of rain, the temperatures have finally dropped a bit out of the 90s and 80s, and the sun always seems to shine. I have been getting a lot of playtime outside, and lots of walks. Mommy gets up early and takes me on a walk every morning before she goes to work. Daddy sometimes gets to go, but mostly not because he has to be to work early. Oh well. Good quality time with mommy. In the evenings, after much ball playing, we try to fit in a family walk together. I like walking with my hoomans.

Mommy mentioned the other day that my gotcha day is coming up on the 7th of November. My hoomans talk of a party, but I doubt it. Not enough time to make sure people will be around. Plus, who would come to a party for a dog? I would like to think a lot of people would! I am special...right????

 

Fall is Here!

WOW! It has been such a LONG time since I wrote in my diary. I have to be better than this.

This has been a whirlwind summer, and today is the first day of fall. Fall is my pawrents favorite time of year. I like it too because the weather is cooler and we can spend more time outside. But...that is not the case right now. For the first day of fall, it is going to be 86 degrees outside. Yesterday, we hit a record 96 degrees! It was so miserable. Tomorrow brings the middle 90s back. Isn't fall about falling leaves, cool weather, and bonfires? We are under an open fire ban, and my parents can get fined $500 if they are caught having a fire. So, no fires. This was a really hot summer, with temps in the 90s a lot.

Leaves are falling in my neighborhood, but that is only because the weather has been so hot and dry, that leaves are dropping early. We have hardly had any rain. Yards are all brown and crunchy. Hurts my feet sometimes when I play, but I take it all in stride.

Let's see...what has happened to me since spring? Nothing much. I was out of commission for some time, as I hurt my left front leg. Once that healed, I split my left front dew claw and took some more time off. I am all back to one piece, and getting to play all the time (when it isn't too hot, that is). My pawrents keep me inside when it is really hot out, as I overheat too quickly. I spend a few days during the week at daycare just to keep me from getting bored when I cannot play outside.

I recently graduated from my 4th obedience class! I was a star student! I received a diploma and a blue ribbon. They are hanging up on the fridge. In two weeks, I start a new class called "K9 Games". I get to learn about agility, and play K9 games. Mommy and daddy are excited to have me in another class. They like having me in classes, as I always learn at least one new thing, and it keeps me on my toes. They want me to be the best that I can be. I think I am succeeding. I am a very obedient dog, but that doesn't matter. Classes are still good for me.

I am also going to try out my paws at dock diving. A few days before my new class, we are traveling south to a dock diving meet. I will have to wear a life vest!
