Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Birthday:
October 19th 2010

Likes:
Her ball comes first. Always. Beyond that she loves agility, treats, and snuggling. She especially likes to snuggle under the covers at bedtime.

Pet-Peeves:
She does not like sharing attention for any reason. It's all about her and that's all there is to it (in her brain, at least).

Favorite Toy:
Kong squeaky tennis balls. All of them. Any tennis ball she can find. For goodness sake GIVE HER THE BALL!

Favorite Food:
Pixie eats Taste of The Wild, raw eggs, and sometimes raw chicken...YUM!

Favorite Walk:
"We're going outside?! NOW!? OMGSH I'M SO EXCITED!"

Best Tricks:
Catching a full sized tennis ball out of midair like she was over 13 pounds or something.

Arrival Story:
Pixie was dumped near our house by a woman who took her as a 6 week old puppy. The woman quickly realized that she didn't have the money (or time) to take on a new puppy. So in a coward's move, she dumped her near my home knowing that if she found her way to my house she would be well cared for. If you read her diary it will tell you more about the story. Although it's from "Pixie's point of view", the facts truly are facts as we found out who dumped her just a couple of days after she appeared at our home.

Forums Motto:
Is that a ball?

Pixie is a mess. She thinks she is the only dog in the house that matters. She LOVES to play. Playing is her life, especially if it takes the form of a round green tennis ball that squeaks. She play-bows, tosses her ball at you, and is far in the yard before you can even throw it. She will play like this for HOURS. But she will also snuggle in my lap at the the end of the day, and crawl under the covers to form to my body. She is sweet and sassy and oh-so much fun! I love our little ratty!

Hello!

Sorry it's been so long! It seems all I do these days is work and walk the dogs! I have so little time to play on Dogster anymore...

I am doing the next DDPC5 contest (under groups) if anyone else is interested in joining. It's a photography contest here on Dogster and is SO FUN! I did it with Gunner last round, this round I'm going to focus on Pixie. :) I'm excited to see what shots I take and for the challenges to start.

It's been calm lately, thank DOG. I think, too, giving our foster dog back to PAWS and quitting rescue was hard for me. It broke my heart and made looking at these pages tough. I hope she has gotten a forever home.

Pixie is doing wonderfully! House training is 100 proof! She hasn't had an accident since last July (unless she is scared/excited, even then it's a rarity!). She is also rocking at agility, starts her novice class (with Gunner) next month. She is very handler focused and works well as my side-kick (she doesn't ever leave my side anyway...).

Gunner and Paisley are doing well too. Paisley went into a sort of anxiety after Peggy left and created a total wake of destruction in her path for nearly a month. I eventually put her on Prozac (no, really). We're off the medication for the last week and she has been wonderful. I think she just freaked out when Peggy left. She is so sensitive to my moods (and Velcro to boot! She doesn't even like it when I'm in the bath-tub and tries to dry me off with her tongue! LOL!) I'm sure she picked up on how sad I was and took it out on the house. I'm trying something new with her, since she prefers simplicity to the rigor of Rally-O and Agility, and she is starting to pull. If she takes to those beginning steps, I'm going to invest in a scooter. I'm taking it slow, we're just working on commands for now, and when her harness comes in we'll be working on pulling a tire down our dirt road. Maybe this will be simple, something she can use to run out some energy, and fun for both of us. It would be nice for her to enjoy something.

Gunner is doing awesome. He has proved himself to the local hunters as a serious tracker, and has a reputation of being "the best I've ever seen." I wish they all knew how much work I put into that dog. It seems they chalk it all up to natural ability and don't give any credit to the person who taught him to behave, even on a trail. I'm the dog-obsessed girl with the amazing spoiled dog who can kill a blood trail... it drives me crazy! He is also excelling in agility, we start the novice class next month, by the end I hope to start competing with him and Pixie!

Anyway, there is an update on whats happening with my fuzzies! Have a great week!

 

I know that DOE just didn't!!!

Oh no. I am so POed. You won't believe this.

We went for a walk right? And I'm all, like, stayin' close ta Mom 'cause that's what I'm sposed ta do (and not ta toot my own horn, but I never leave Mom's side).

Anyways, like I was sayin', we was all walkin' through our woods like we do every day and out comes this doe. Well, she's all actin like she's the $#!% and like she ain't scared of us so she starts runnin like she's gonna run us over. Well, Gunner like, looses his mind 'cause he's just crazy an I'm standin in the middle of the trail not sure what to do.

Well that hoe, I mean doe, just comes right up and STOMPS on me! Yeah, that doe stomped me right in the dirt!

I rolled over an' Mom said she heard me say, "Uh- uh! I KNOW THAT DOE JUST DIDN'T! GET BACK HERE SKANK!"

I then took off into the woods to further terrorize her.

My girls, Peggy and Paisly had my back.

Gunner was stuck howling on a leash with Mom.

We came back 10 minutes later, a little banged up, but that doe got a piece of me.
Then Mom, looking a tad frazzled, let us in the house.

I brought her my ball and demanded she trow it!

POWER TO TERRORISTS!

Pixie

 

Why can't I pee in the house???

So, Momma's not letting me have ANY freedom because I pee in the house. She says that I'm not supposed to pee on the floor.

I don't know why. I mean, there is PLENTY of room to walk around that spot on the carpet. Right? Instead, Mom tied my leash to herself and I'm not allowed to run around unsupervised. Not fair. Gunner and Paisley can. So can Peggy, the current foster.

Mom say's they're all housebroken. She also says it's not MY fault, I'm just being a "terrier". Something about me being rotten and independent.

Then she says something about me being too cute.

Which I am. How else could they handle me? BOL.
