I love everybody and all I want to do is give people kisses!

When Mommy leaves me at home! :(

Favorite Toy:
The ropey kind because the other kinds are WAY too easy to destroy! I like a challenge!

Favorite Food:
Whatever my mom is eating... especially when she is bbq-ing with her friends!

Favorite Walk:
Wherever we can run into other dogs!

Best Tricks:
I have springs for legs... I can jump over gates! Nothing can contain me which frustrates my Mommy! :)

Arrival Story:
My mommy adopted me from OC Animal Care - a shelter in Orange, CA - and took me home on August 11, 2010. I picked her right away and started licking her face in the visiting area! She had no choice but to sign the papers for my adoption! I came into the shelter as a stray and was never claimed by an owner. The shelter told my mom they think I might be a purebred, and the longer my fur grows the more people think I am! My mom, however, doesn't care if I am purebred or not! She promised me the day she took me home that I would be with her for the rest of my life and that she would pamper me and give me the life I deserve! The shelter is full of doggies like me who need loving homes. If you love dogs, please do NOT get one from a pet store! You will be supporting the awful puppy mill industry! Many pet stores who say they don't get their puppies from puppy mills are lying. Do your research on where the store gets its puppies from! But personally I think you should go to the pound first. If my mom never came to the pound for me I might still be there, or even worse, I might not be alive anymore!

The bottom photo is of me at the pound when my mom and I first visited and fell in love instantly! I was pretty dirty and matted. Now I'm groomed and clean and very, very loved!

For the past 5 days we've been staying at my mommy's parents' house and I have been having SO MUCH FUN!!! They have 2 other little doggies, a black miniature poodle named Smokey Joe and a schnoodle named Louie! All I do is play with them all day long, go for walks with them, run around in the backyard, eat, and sleep upstairs with my mommy (as usual)! I never want to leave! We're going to have to though because mommy doesn't live here. She REALLY wants to rescue a new little playmate for me but her life circumstances at the moment won't allow her too. I hope things change for her REALLY soon because I want a new playmate more than anything!!!

Mom took me out for a walk and we ran into 2 other doggies! One was a Yorkie and the other was a Lhasa JUST LIKE ME!!! I played so much with the other Lhasa while mom talked to the cute boy that she belonged to. Seeing me play so happily with another doggy made Mom really want to go rescue another one of us from the pound so I can have a playmate but Grandma thinks that's a VERY bad idea! But Mom might not listen and do it anyway. I guess we'll have to see.

That little adventure was so much fun and then when we got back home I passed out under the coffee table!


Home Sweet Home!

Today I arrived at my new home with my new mommy! It was a pretty long car ride to get there because there was so much traffic! Mom had to put a cone on me because I wouldn't stop licking my scar!

We finally arrived and I started exploring my new home. I was SO THIRSTY that when mom poured me some water I drank it for a good minute!

I just sort of laid around while mom unloaded the car with all my new doggy stuffs. I waited for her at the door the whole time, and got really excited and wagged my tail whenever she came back in! Once everything was unpacked, mom wiped me down because I was dirty and stinky. She also brushed me and it felt sooooo good!

Now I'm really tired and I'm sleeping and snuggling next to my new mom on the couch. Surgery really wore me out and I need lots of rest! This couch is SO much more comfortable than the hard concrete at the pound!! Life is good!!!
