January 10th 2010

Dooli loves to play, run and jump. He just loves life! He likes to wrestle on the Big Bed, run around in his backyard,and he likes to bark at the birds and squirrels. He's a very happy pup! He loves to play Fists of Fury with his dad.

He HATES the hose! He will growel at it, bite it, jump at it and if I spray him with the hose he goes wild! He also doesn't like the lawn mower and will chase it and growel at it. Dooli will chase any squirrel he sees.

Favorite Toy:
Doolie loves toys and really likes his fleece hand made 'squido' toy. He likes his tug toy and LOVES to wrestle with dad's gloved hands.

Favorite Food:
Salmon and chicken! We give him a fresh cooked diet with specially added vitamins and minerals for dogs on an all protein diet.

Favorite Walk:
Doolie's favorite places to walk include our neighborhood, Bark Park, the rose garden and his own back yard.

Best Tricks:
Dooli can 'sit' and he knows 'down'. He can jump up to chase squirrels, wakes us up on Saturday morning, and jumping for his dinner. I'd say his BEST trick though, is being so happy every day. He loves us, he loves his home, and he loves life!

Arrival Story:
Doolin was picked up as a stray hundreds of miles from where he lives now. The local shelter gave him an exam and found that he had a wound of some kind on his back right leg. It didn't need stitches, but he was given antibiotics and a cone for his head so he wouldn't lick the wound. When his holding date came and went without anyone claiming him, Sheltie Shack Rescue and lots of other people we have never even met helped Dooli get to Kansas. He came to us on a cold January night to help us honor the memory of our Little Big Man, Connor Mac Nessa, who passed away at Christmas. He will help heal our hearts, and we will help heal his.

Doolie is a Blue Merle Sheltie with a drop of blue in the bottom of his right eye. He's a cute and very friendly little guy who loves everyone he meets. He's a happy pup with a very positive, and energetic outlook. He loves life! He's about 1-2 years old the vet thinks.

Forums Motto:
I love LIFE!

My New Forever Home

My "gotchya day"

I've been in my Forever home now for two years! I got some new chewies, some steak, and of course lots of hugs. This weekend my mom says I will also get a bath too. Uh, I don't know about you, but I don't really consider having to put up with a bath a present. But then again, I always get really good snacks after a bath. Maybe it won't be so bad. The weather is warming up again after the wacky polar vortex. I've been watching the birds at their feeders. I love watching the cardinals with my fursister Kenny. She helps me on porch patrol too. At night, I hop up onto The Big Bed, find my snuggy chenille blanky, and after dad gives me a good butt rub, I snuggle down for a good sleep. In the morning, I climb up on my dad and wake him up so he can make our breakfast for us. Yup. It's a good life! xoxox


Moths, butterflies and bees, oh my!

We have a Forest of Sunflowers in our side yard! The flower plants are about 12 feet high and their heads follow the sun. It's totally weird. The best part is that lots of butterflies have been visiting the flowers. I love that 'cuz I then I can chase them! I did alot of that today. I also see moths and bees visiting the flowers too. This morning I went out there and I saw an American Goldfinch in one of the plants. That was pretty cool. My mom was there and she saw it too. Mom says we should have even more sunflower plants next summer since we are leaving the plants up and the seeds will fall into the soil. Won't that be fun? xoxo


Hotter than Hell...

It's totally too hot here in Kansas! I have to wait for the sun to go down before I can go outside to play for longer than 10 minutes. When mom goes out to the potted garden to water it, I go out with her. Sometimes I get a drink from the hose, sometimes I jump up and try to catch the water that's coming from the hose. I also growl at it, just in case it's thinking that I can't. But as soon as the watering is finished, I have to go back inside. Too hot for us Shelties. At night, my dad takes me for a cool night time walk. I love that. Sometimes we see deer. I wonder what will happen tonight? xoxoxo
