   Leave a bone for Tohbi - Deceased 10/04/2013

Tobit, Pooper, Poop-Head, SweetiePetey

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

April 10th 2004

Having someone or something chase him. Its in his blood. He's a born tease.

Having his nails done. And - when you don't chase him. Awww, come ON.

Favorite Toy:
Small, football shaped hedge hogs that "grunt" when he squeezes.

Favorite Food:
Mostly TOTW-Pacific Stream, but really anything he finds except bananas and tomatos (uck)

Favorite Walk:
Off the beaten path. As long as I stay where he can find me, he likes to take off and explore on his own now.

Best Tricks:
Ummm... He's not much of an "obey-er". He can untangle his leash from anything he gets wrapped up in, though.

Arrival Story:
I'd love to say I rescued him from a horrible shelter, but I got him from a wonderful breeder. I had been looking for a young puppy rescues, but I hadn't been serious or found the "just right" pup. Tohbi's breeder was one on of the best and I'd been following their dogs for years. When I saw his fat little face, I just had to have him.

The horrible terror that was Tohbi is now a content, fat old dog. It was definately the worst puppyhood I've ever experienced or even heard of. He was a demon. Whole sections of the house were lost to his destructive nature. But I loved it. He was a handful. ..... Tohbi is now the family "it" dog. My mother dog-sits everyday and my father (now passed) used to take him for truck rides all over town - I suspect just to show him off. He's my baby. I don't think it would be possible for me to love or to spoil him more. Now, if I could only handle another....

Thanks to Gram's amazing back surgery recovery and her taking me for daily walks, I've lost lots of the weight.

As a result, my limping is a lot better though my general laziness is markedly worse.

Mom wants to take me into the vet's office and ask to use the scale. She's guessing I'm around 85 lbs right now. Lookin' pretty darn good too (though my favorite way to show myself off by stretching out on the sofa for about 12 hours a day - then the bed for 8 hours more).

I blame Grandma. She had back surgery and didn't exercise me enough. Yeah - that's it. Its not like its my fat momma's fault.


I'm a good dog!

OK - It took five years, but I'm officially a GOOD DOG. I'd still never pass the Canine Good Citizen test, but my family thinks I'm 100% better than I used to be. ( I still can't do that "Mom leaves the room" part. I go whine and cry noisily - as demonstrated last Saturday at the Fire Hall fundraiser when Mom left to get us a hot dog.)

I did do one thing bad in the past couple of weeks. I was left on the porch for a bit with the cats. Well, I decided I didn't want to be on the porch (despite the bed and the chairs and the shade and the back room and the food and the water....). I took it upon myself to attain access to Gram and Pap's house.

First, I removed the screen from the screen door. I was very careful - only two tiny holes. I pulled the screen out rather than burst through it. See! I'm nice that way!

Then, I tried to jump through the window hole. It was a bit high and a little small. I hurt my belly pretty bad. But, I did get inside and snuggled in on the sofa to tend to my bruises. When Mom and the others got home - I didn't even get yelled at much. They were all Oooing over my poor bruised belly. In a few days, I was fine. But... they don't let the screen door window open at all any more.
