Wow...I don't know how I got so lucky! I found a great furever home! I was adopted on Nov. 13, 2010. I had been in a scary place...an animal shelter in Brooklyn, NY where I was afraid and so lonely. I was rescued along with some other dogs by a rescue group. My picture and information was posted on Petfinders.com and that's how my new family found me! I know they were sad when they adopted me because they had just lost Yola, the dog they had before me. She was 15 yrs old when she died...and I understand she was the best dog ever. I know I'm not so good and I have alot to learn, but I'm trying. There is a cat who lives in my new home...and I can't help myself...I want to chase her! My family keeps us apart...so I don't hurt the kitty by mistake by playing too rough! I go to a training class...and I'm ready to graduate this Monday night, Feb. 28, 2011. Then I will go to the intermediate class where I will earn my CGC (Canine Good Citizen) certificate...Wow, I'll be so proud of myself! I know I have to pass a test first, but my Mom says I can already pass about 90% of the test already! Imagine that!! My family will take photos of my graduation and then we will post them here...what fun! I love to take long walks because I LOVE to sniff everything! AND I LOVE to ride in the car too! I'm a good dog...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE my family!

 

I Graduated from Doggie School!!

Wow,,,I did it! I graduated from a beginner's training class on Feb. 28, 2011. I worked hard for 8 weeks to learn all my tasks. I learned to heel, do an automatic sit with no voice command, do a 30 minute down, come when called thru a maze of distractions like food,toys, other dogs, learned to "leave it" when told...now that is hard!! My graduation party was fun...I was in a class with 7 other dogs...we all graduated! You see me receiving my diploma and getting a toy and two nice cookies for my prize. I had to go through some bowling pins and knock them down..but I was being very careful and only knocked ONE down!! Then our trainer wanted to introduce us to some of the Agility courses. I jumped over the hurdle, I came through a very long tunnel which was very difficult for me!! I also tried to catch the cookie at a cookie toss...We had soooo much fun! I'm going to the 2nd session where I will earn my CGC certificate...Wow..imagine that!

I'm having fun at school.I'm in the intermediate level now...I must be smart!! I am working towards my CGC certificate and I can do so many of the things that I must learn in order to get my certificate. My mom is proud of me....and most of the time I do a good job. Sometimes I get tired at school and I don't focus and then I'm all over the place!! WOL(woof out loud)!! Mom always knows when I'm tired...I don't pay attention, and I don't do what I'm supposed to do...She says it's OK..she loves me! I always fall asleep in the car on the way home!
My friend Maximus was being crazy last week...he's a Rottie/Lab boy...a big beautiful goofy boy...I LOVE him! He makes me Woof Out Loud!! He gallops to his mom...and almost knocks her over!!
He's soooo handsome!
Uh oh...I had better practice with my mom before class on Monday night...I need to know my stuff!! I wanna look good for Maximus!
Love,
Shy

My Pack Walk

Hi everyone...I'm sorry I haven't been here much...my mom is having alot of work done in our house and we haven't had our computer hooked up!

I want to tell you about my newest adventure. My mom and I now walk in the park with a dog pack! My trainer, Bill, walks his dogs in the park early during the off leash hours. Other people join us and there are about 12 dogs in all. We all have become friends. We are all off leash so that makes everything more fun! We run through the woods chasing each other, we jump over logs and, hop across streams. Sometimes we run into a water hole and get all wet! My mom says that I look like I'm smiling because I'm soooo happy! After we make our way through the woods, we come to a big open field where we run and chase balls. I'm sooooo tired by the time we leave the park. It's soooooo much fun! When I come home I sleep all morning!!

My mom says that I'm a much better girl when we walk through our neighborhood...I don't bark at other dogs and I don't chase the squirrels as much. I guess I get all my running in during our walk through the woods! I'm such a happy girl...I LOVE my pack!!

 

My Florida Vacation

I had the BESTEST time in Florida!! It was my first vacation with my new family and I had so much fun! We drove to Florida from New York. We have a big van and I travel in a crate next to my kitty sister, Chloe, who has her own crate. We stayed overnight in motels on the road and that was fun. When we got to Florida I had my very first walk on a beach and I NEVER EVER smelled so many intersting aromas in my life! I sniffed shells and horseshoe crabs, and snails and little crabs. I chased the big blue herons and barked at the little waves. I waded in the water and tried to bite the waves. We went to Dog Beach every morning. I didn't have to stay on my leash there, and I got to run on the beach with other dogs and chase balls into the water! I even tried to catch a kayak and I swam way out in the water! I couldn't catch him! This is truly a doggie paradise! I'm home now in NY but my family says we are going back to Florida again real soon...My furry bags are all packed!! I can't wait to go!! WOL (woof out loud)

 

Hi to all my fur friends!

I just wanted to say hi to you all...My mom has been real busy and hasn't had time to get on my page and let me play games! I LOVE to play games! I've been having such fun this summer running with my pack-mates. We chase squirrels, jump logs and play in water holes when we hike through the woods...OH, IT'S SUCH FUN!!
I still go to Doggie school...I'm in the advanced class now..
I learn all kinds of required elements for the shows although I don't think I will be going to any. My trainer said that there are some matches where mixed breed dogs can be entered...but I think I would be way too nervous!! I want to get a costume for Halloween and go to the park near us where they have a doggie parade...doesn't that sound like fun? AND I want to play in the doggie olympics too.
I have such a good life now...I'm a happy dog...always smiling!

 

My Gotcha Day

Today is my Happy Gotcha Day. I have been with my mom for one year now. I am the happiest, luckiest pup in the world. My mom rescued me from a very scary shelter. I was almost gonna be put to sleep....but here I am living a safe, loving, quiet life with my new family. I am so thankful!

Guess what happened to me today? We went to the park as we always do every morning during off leash hours. I get so excited that I bark and wag my tail practically off my body!! Well, 2 dogs came rushing at me and both attacked me. One bit my ear and it was bleeding. My mom took me to the vet and I got 3 stitches!! Poor little me!! Why did those dogs jump me like that?? I love all dogs and I love to play with them in the park. These 2 dogs bared their toofers at me and snarled at me. I didnt know what to do so I tried to get away...I NEVER bare my toofers!!

Anyhow I am OK now...just a little sleepy from all that excitement!! And to think it was my Happy Gotcha Day...getting stitches is no way to celebrate...but my mom gave me treats and hugs..and that ALWAYS makes me happy!! G'nite everyone..XOX

Wow, Christmas is so much fun...I keep walking up to our Christmas tree and sniffing it...it's so pretty. I have 2 ornaments...one is a bone with my name on it and the other is a "WOOF" ornament with my picture. My mom is going to post a photo of them on here. I also have a new pink parka with a matching scarf...Mom says she will put that photo up too.
I miss Chloe....even though I always wanted to chase her, I loved her in my own doggie way. She went to the Rainbow Bridge in Oct.
I'm afraid to go and see Santa...he will scare me and I will bark at him! Mom says I can just make a wish list in my doggie heart.
I love snow!! When will it snow??
OK... I think I said everything I wanted to say...bye for now...HO HO HO

Happy birthday to me!! Today is my real birthday...I am 9 yrs.old. My mom says I act more like I'm 2!! I love to run and play with the dogs at the park. I had my regular morning walk at the park...met all my doggie friends. Then I went to the beach with my family and walked the boardwalk where I am allowed to be during the off-season. It's still winter here on Long Island, but the winter has been mild...Mom says yippee...but I LOVE the snow! We stopped at the picnic area to have lunch...the fishing boats come in here. I had my very own hot dog for lunch! What a great birthday! I got a whistling tennis ball for my Chuckit for my birthday too..I can't wait to try it out in the park!
Mom is going to post my birthday picture...she bought me a pink tiara that says Happy Birthday...I look soooo pretty in it!
I am a lucky dog!
Thank you to everyone at Dogster for wishing me a happy birthday and most especially for the 25 bones you gifted me with...I LOVE them!
Bye for now...
Love,
Shy
