People who cuddle stuffed animals, washing machines and computers with endless wires.

Favorite Toy:
His one-eyed stuffed elephant with the rawhide bone.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
The nearby resort @ the beach with the lasagna restaurant.

Best Tricks:
Fetching the newspaper, waiting for me to look up for 5 seconds after he gives it to me, then dropping it into the trash can. Anyway, he's a genius. He can do anything!

Arrival Story:
Then, a mere 9 years before, I was 8 years old. I had really wanted a G.R. So I did some research, though it was useless because my mom said 'wait until you go to college'. I was relieved to skip a grade as it took away one last year or bursting agony. But still, I'd have to wait 9 years! Well, I still acted as if I was going to get one soon. And nothing could convince her to get me one. As usual with Chinese moms, mine was as stubborn as a rock. Well, I waited. I took care of my awesome hamsters, I did research, I held my pain. I waited imaptiently for every April 17 for nine straight burning, painful, agonizing, intriguing 365 days. I turned 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. The same wish prolonged in my heart. Oh my gosh! One year to go! I was on my toes. Who cares if 8 years had passed? I wanted one more than ever! My last year in school passed with tenseness, surprise and patient waiting. I graduated. I was bursting! 2 1/2 months to go, and I could get a Golden Retriever! (Though I could get one a year before college, I was waiting until I went to America because their breeders are trustier.) I went to college with a sparkling heart. I did research all the way. Found a perfect breeder. I had to go there! Well, after 2 months of rest, I was bouncing in my happy mood. I hitched a taxi and off we went! That is my wish of a long time ago. I was totally bursting and squealing like a little kid. When I was 8 years old. I froze in rememberance. Well, all went well. I got the jumpiest, craziest little pup and he loved me like crazy. I might also get a Shetland Sheepdog or Collie. 2nd favorite breed. They can have mutt babies. I might also get an Akita-Ken/Shiba Inu and a Samoyed. My love for dogs is forever.

Forums Motto:
Bright Starlight in the dark night!

Starlight Stuff:

Hey, boy. Over here!

He listens

Starlight is the ultimate dog! I know he'll do something good one day. Or more. He's just a puppy. He got a bright, starlight-shining future. I got a bright, starlight-shining future like him.

Come Starlight!

So why not we bond and cocoon as much as we can and spend our mere years together?

Hey Goldie!

Goldie's Starlight's friend.

Da Amazing Costargos Presented and the Dog Meet to Die For

Hey. Awesome Starlight's back again! Read Cosmo's diary yet? He's a really awesome guy. I think of him as a true writer. I know that we can trust him to keep deep, dark emotional secrets. Besides, he gets happy easily, like me. A hug and we wag our tails. That's how we are, anyways.
Okay. So we had a meeting in the backyard to elect the name of our new trio.
A mix of our names was suggested by intelligent Cosmo. Costargos sounds totally perfect. A high five and the name was selected.
By the way, Evelyn and Sophia's also created the coolest thing. The Dog Meet!
The DM is a meeting we have, like a challenging test. If say Goldie obey and get the commands done (sometimes we try new ones for fun), she gets a point. For each 5 points you get a random thing (not just a tidbit, but something like a bone, a toy or a feather thingy. We're getting really competitive. So far, Goldie's beating me by 2. Cosmo's tied with me.

You see, Evelyn is a big celebrator. Now we wait like goody goodies all the time, and they've decided to take us celebrating at the restaurant. I'm running around in circles, biting the leash and Goldie just sits around, bored. Sophia promised her that she'd get a sloppy joe for Goldie. That's her favorite food. For me, I'd rather stay clean than be jam purple. Anyways, Evelyn put me on her leash, and I started jumping. Evelyn said, "Down, Starly." I don't obey, afraid there's no lasagna. I think that when I misbehave or before I do.
Goldie and I yapped all the way along, drooling a path of saliva. Since the sloppy joes were closer, Goldie and I separated to each buy their food.
"Meet at the dock!" they each yelled. I drooled like a shower. I knew I needed discipline. Duh! Evelyn tied me to a post and went in to order heaven.
10 minutes later, they carried out a hot lasagna. I jumped and jumped and broke free the knot. I saw Evelyn appear through the door. Just when I was about to misbehave, you know what I thought. So I sat and held out my paws to welcome the deliciousness. But then Eve took it from me. "You know what? Let's eat at the dock." I drooled like a storm all the way to the dock.
Evelyn put the lasagna down and started chattering to Sophia. I closed my eyes and had bit by bit, afraid that it would be finished already.
I opened my eyes. Goldie snickered playfully. "You looked stupid."
"Why should I care?" I retorted.
The lasagna... was too good.


I Light the Way

Okay! If you've ever heard the Akita Hachiko story, I love it! Though it is a symbol of loyalism and perseverance, I've been thinking about it these 2 days. Guess what I figured out?
Starlight and Goldie waiting for Evelyn and Sophia!
You know what? It's not that hard to go to the class place, sit down, and wait.
I know what you're thinking: This is a simplified version of Hachiko. But in that story the owner dies, and no way Evelyn is only 17 and she is NOT going to die. Well, if so, I'm going to shine a star and save her life. Then I'm going to be the hero of the world. But what I care about more-is my owner and her lighting life.
Well, while Evelyn and Sophia were at class, we sneaked out of the house, pawed around and smelled and listened. Hmm... Turn left, pass the funny rainbow car...turn right, turn left at the weird naked statue (Evelyn says there's nothing much about it, just a work of art.) How could it be a work of art? I turned away and disappeared from the people's eyes.
Sniff... Sniff... Aha! "Goldie, do you smell them?"
"Yeah! I hear they're having baking class in the barkery up ahead. It sure smells wonderful!"
I smiled and tossed my head. "Lasagna?" We ran towards the barkery. Goldie rolled her eyes and stuck out his tongue. I laughed.
"Starlight!" Goldie skidded to a stop, sticking a paw in front of me. I bumped into it slightly.
"How could we react when she finds us there, sitting down like angels?"
I retorted as a deep thinker, "Maybe, you and I think, what would SHE do?"
Goldie tossed her head. "Duh! Be puprised, trying not to show it, if the teacher is looking. And stop being so bossy."
I rolled my eyes at Goldie. "Good work. Well, just then," I pulled her in a corner. "I got an idea on what to do. Speaking our your annoyed reply just now, we cock our heads and stick out our tongues. Then look loyal."
"OK, fine." Goldie is a smart, sly, loving but stubborn Golden Retriever. I don't plan on falling in love with my friend, so we smart Goldens have a sign hidden in our basket saying in red marker, "Spay and neuter us." When it's time, we plan on showing it to them.
Well, we sat in front of the barkery. The owners noticed us in slight shock and we cocked our head and stuck out our tongues as planned to. Then they both giggled, and we looked loyal-at least tried to-I am one no-good loyal looker.
Who said I wasn't loyal? We are going to do this until she graduates from college.
Well, we got some praise and attention from Evelyn and Sophia. This is so totally awesome.
The weird thing is that, I actually get to type on a computer. Goldie writes with pen. Some days, we just sit side by side and write in our journals (Diary sound weird for a record maker star like me.)
Well, that's the stardom of the day.
