walks, sitting with her mom, blankies, treats, sleeping
baths, getting her toe-nails clipped, and trips to the vet
all people food except raw veggies and fruit--any sort of meat is highly desirable
walking on hind legs--normally in search of food
Scrappy's dad found her out in an industrial park. It was clear Scrappy had been out on her own for quite some time. All the hair on her ears was worn off and she was very scared of people. I didn't really want a dog--I'm allergic and didn't think that I was a dog person. But my sister and I took the next day to tend to her. By the second day with Scrappy, I was hooked! I had placed a lost dog ad in the paper, but in observing her behavior (the fear and mistrust), I didn't think her former owners deserved her. I dreaded the phone during those last few days of the ad. Anyway, Scrappy got to stay with us and all her cuteness turned me into the ultimate dog lover.
Scrappy came into our lifes in May, which is when we celebrate our "Scrappy-anniversary." We aren't sure how old she is and the vets have a hard time estimating due to all her heart problems. Scrappy's a very tough and resilient dog!
Scrappy -- I'm tough!

My friend Cappone tagged me and now I'm it...I choose 7 pals to tag and they do the same.
Here are the rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!
Here are 7 interesting facts about me--Scrappy:
1. I always spin in circles (before peeing, pooing, or lying down).
2. I only spin to the left.
3. I am a stomach on legs--I can always eat more.
4. I pretend I don't like my brother Trevor, but he's fun to play with at times.
5. I'm very indepedent and somewhat moody (kind of like a cat:)
6. I am very well behaved in car rides.
7. I often crawl under furnature to create a doggy den.
I'm tagging: Georgie, Cashew, Logan, Bobby, Oscar, Weeman, and Zoe

Five years ago today, I found my furever home. Mom says it's really her special day...but I'm still getting all the treats and attention! I've already been on two walks today and should get one more. I also got some delicious treats. Mom went to Three Dog Bakery and got me a personalized bone. She also got pupcakes and Dreamly Drool Bars. Then, the owner, who also rescued a dog with heartworm, sent home three extra treats for me! Wow! The frig is full of treat, just for me! Well, Trevor gets some too...but I got to share his birthday cake so it's only fair.
I can't believe it's been five years...mom thought it was only four at first, but we've really been together for that long. That also means I'm older than we are acknowledging. My true age is a secret, but I might be close to nine years old! Anyhow, now I got to go play tag--hooray!

Min Pin Manchester Mania had a My Mommy Loves Me contest for Mother's Day. I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner for the sweetest entry. In addition to the honor, I also got a Star on my page! Thanks MPMM...
Here's my entry:
My mother loves me so much. My dad always jokes that he didn’t find me, I found them. The stars aligned because my mom never wanted a dog. In fact, she didn’t really understand dogs or dog people . She is allergic, so she never realized the joy dogs can bring. When I came home with dad, my mom said “No way! We cannot have a dog!” They borrowed some food from a neighbor and made me a bed outside on the porch (she didn’t want me in the house , but I did have worms. She seemed firm in her decision, but agreed to take care of the situation. The next day, she called in to work and took the day off. Then, she started calling shelters, lost dog registries, and placed an ad in the paper.
She decided to let me in the house…I was so sad and scare and terrified. All the hair on my ears was worn off. I cowered if anybody came close to me…except my mom. She just sat on the floor and let me come to her. I realized it was safe and I never wanted to leave. Mom decided if she had a dog in her house, she had to make sure I didn’t have fleas and worms. She took me on my first of countless trips to the vet.
You see, I also had heartworm! I needed to be fixed, and I had a hernia. I’ve been through so much. It took two years of treatment to rid me of the heartworm. My mom realized that I had been severely mistreated. She didn’t know much about dogs, but felt the fear and mistrust was not normal. I hid and ran from my dad for almost 3 years! Things are better now, but I’m still completely a mama’s girl. I melted her heart and she’s won my love completely. Maybe it’s the unconditional love and acceptance, the silly songs she sings, the treats she gives (or makes), or the endless supply of blankets given to me to snuggle up in….what ever it is, it’s clear that my mom love me so much!
