Quick Bio:
-purebred-service dog

February 13th 2003

He LOVES his Search & Rescue training!! He also loves going to the pet stores and to the Dog Park. And we can't forget WATER!!! And bugging Granny!

His ear drops when he has an ear infection. And being bothered when he's trying to sleep. Not being able to bring stick into the house when my people are allowed to bring them in and put them in that black, bun warmer in the corner!

Favorite Toy:
He loves all of his toys but the loud, squeaky one's are his favorites. Dirty socks from the laundry!

Favorite Food:
He LOVES vanilla ice cream and bread! His dog food "Extreme Dog Fuel".

Favorite Walk:
Around the neighborhood and down to our local park. In the woods, hunting for a "lost" person.

Best Tricks:
Air scenting a "lost" person! He's learning some hand signals and German commands. He also does this silly howl/whine noise when he yawns.

Arrival Story:
A friend told me she had several Lab puppies that were being bottle fed and she had to give them away. I went and looked at the puppies but didn't really think I'd end up with one! When I got ready to leave, one of the puppies had climbed into my soccer sandal and fallen asleep! I HAD to take him! He was 3 weeks old and had already had a tramatic life - his mom got 'confused' because 2 puppies died at birth, so she buried all 11 puppies - TWICE! After that, she would not feed them. From being in the dirt and woods so much, the puppies ended up with scabies!! He lost almost all of his fur!

Troubles has a birth mark on the back of his tongue - a large black spot on the very back. It looks as if he ate a ball point pen! He was the only puppy from 2 litters that has it! He is the only dog I've ever owned that will sit in the tub and wait on abath! He loves them! It's so bad that I keep having to use different words to say "bath" because he gets too excited! I started saying "stinky" but within about 2 or 3 days, he started understanding that too. He is also understanding icky, yucky, dirty, smelly, clean, swim, pool, and many others. He also knows the word school, "Put your necklace on." (collar), "Take a dump." and other silly things. He knows "Find it", "get to work", "show me" and some other commands that are associated with Search and Rescue. I also think he's a 6yr old little boy reincarnated!
