Arrival Story:
I came to Portland from an abusive home where I was beaten with a rubber hose, barely fed/watered, and had NO veterinary care whatsoever. I arrived with A LOT of abuse issues and have become one of the most well-adjusted, even-tempered, intelligent, and happy dogs. My daddies say that I am a very sweet, kind soul and show that I love you every chance that I get.

I was impregnated by my father in my first heat before I was a year old and my "daughter" missy is a product of that litter. I wasn't a good mother at that point however I am definitely a great mom to the rest of my family (even my humans).

Well, since this is my first entry, I will just tell you what has happened to me since my Daddy created my profile here. I have been really enjoying having Paco and Pancho come outside with Missy and I. They are a lot of fun to play with, but, boy! do they like to get into mischief. I am still trying to learn the difference between when they are fighting and when they are playing. I'm sure I'll get it someday...if not...oh well..where's my floosy!!!!!!?

The weekend before April 18, 2005, my mom and grandma came to visit. I like it when they visit. Grandma gives me food when my daddies won't, and mom gives me LOTS OF HUGS! The thing that was different this time is that they took me home with them. At first, I didn't think anything of it, but then after we got up the next morning, I wasn't allowed to eat anything and took me to the doctor! When I got to the doctor, I noticed that they brought Missy too, which made me feel a little bit better, but I still didn't know what was going on. Well, to make a long story short, Missy and I were at the doctor's office to get "spaed"...whatever that means. All I know is that the doctor and the ladies that took care of me there were really nice to me and helped me a lot.

The next day, Mom came to pick me up (and missy too!). When we got back to her house, I thought my daddies would be there, but they weren't, and BOY WAS I SAD!! I kept watching the road in front of her house so that, when my daddies came to get me, I would be ready for them. Well, they didn't come and didn't come and so I was REALLY sad and missed them a LOT! After a couple days, I heard a car come up the road and parked in Mom's driveway. The doors opened and some people got out. I barked at them and then saw who they were. They were MY DADDIES!!!!! I jumped all over them when they got into the house and sat down. I let them know that I missed them and BOY WAS I GLAD TO SEE THEM!!! I also didn't want them to ever leave me anywhere ever again!

Something else happened that was pretty cool. On May 4, 2005, I was home with one of my daddies like usual (sometimes he goes to work, sometimes he doesn't have to go to's weird but that's humans for ya!), and then he asked all of us to load up and that he was going to get my "other" grandma. I thought "What are you talking about???????" and gave him a really confused look , but then I loaded up and took a nap. When I woke up, Daddy let me out and there was a strange lady in the room. I never met her before but she looked nice. She petted me and said "Hi, Cricket." so I liked her. Daddy said that this was his "other" grandma that I had never met before in my whole life. She sure was a nice lady to me. She let me sit on her lap and she petted me. She didn't like it when I tried to give her kisses on her face, but I'm used to that....but I still try to sneak them in!

Anyway, I am really happy that I don't have to go into heat anymore and I have ANOTHER grandma! Well, I'm gonna go play now and keep an eye on my pack o kids! Where is that flossy???!!!!
