Arrival Story:
Crystal came from the Handler guy. She is a powder puff Crested and was originally going to be a show dog but one of her ears refused to stand. Cryssie didn't mind, she became a house pet and never looked back!

Crystal loves anyone and everyone. Inside the house she is calm, cool and collected and a perfect angel. Outside, she is a totally wild woman, racing around and stomping in any and all mud puddles she finds. Even outside alone she will grab a toy and race in a huge circle as fast as she can! I just love watching her in action.

Dogster... here, gone, here again, who knows???

Boy, it has been tough getting on Dogster lately. Last weekend we ran in the lab pen lots and Mom got lots of photos and low and behold, we couldn't put them on until this weekend!!!
And, other times we can read forum posts but not respond or other silly things. Right now it seems great so we will take advantage of it!!!
Today Auntie Jeanne came along down to visit with her new lab puppy. She also brought Gemma, Quincy's sister. I like Gemma, always have, so we played quite a bit in the lab pen.
Mom generally shuts the chickies into their pen on Friday night so we can have the lab pen without them for the weekend. Well, it was pouring last night so she didn't wait up for them to go to bed, she went to bed first. This morning she tried to get them all in with the promise of some cracked corn but only eleven of the twelve came.
Anyway, we all ran off to the lab pen and were having fun playing. Suddenly, Beanie discovered the chickie over in the corner...he woofed and chased her so of course we ALL got in on the chase. That hen was pretty fast and quickly outran us and hunkered down in a thick patch of blackberry bushes.
Now, I KNEW she was in there...I could smell her and I wanted her. All the other dogs went back to playing but I could not forget that chickie. I tried to squirm my way into those bushes but those prickers were about an inch long EACH and my coat and soft skin were no match for them. A couple of times I snuck out of the pen thru the missing slats on the stockade fence, but there was no way in to the chickie from the outside and Mom always discovered me out there and made me come back inside.
I now have to contend with just visions of fresh chickie in my dreams tonight, darn it all!!!
HEY, forgot to mention...Mom finally found a new home for Pixie, the mini poodle. Good thing, too, because she and I did not see eye to eye and were going to come to blows soon! I cannot believe she came into MY house and was trying to upsurp ME!!!!


Holy Smokes, DOG OF THE DAY!!!!

Hehehe, I have never had any honors and I got TWO in the same month!!!! Wowwee!
It is a great honor you have bestowed upon me, I only wish this would last FOREVER instead of only until March 3rd, darn it all. Mom did get a whole bunch of new photos yesterday and at least with my honor more people will get to see them, BOL!
We have been trying to get on some of the newer sites to see what they are all about but man, are we having problems!! So far, out of five different places Mom has tried we have only gotten into two and they weren't what we were looking for at all.
We like Dogster because it is about the dogs!!! Any site that won't let us have dog pages is not for us. Gee, one place we checked put everyone's photos all in the same place and they were tiny, too, with no headings at all. Nope, not what we need.
Anyway, thanks for all the gifts and well wishes. Now I got a date outside with another five inches of new powder!!! Catch ya later!!!


Diary of the Day!!!!!

WOW, exciting day for me!!! Mom got an email (that in itself was exciting, BOL!), and it said I was the Diary pick of the Day!! That is soo neat, I don't think I've ever been picked for that before.
Also, Mom took me over to work to get a groom cuz her regular clients didn't show up since it was soooo cooollllddd here today. Sure, they don't have to get groomed but I do, cold or not.
To make it even worse, I have been growing out my long, flowing locks since late Summer and they were getting pretty long. Sadly, as Mom found out, they were also getting pretty matted!!! She did try combing out a few of them, but it was a LONG process and she didn't want me to have to lie there for all that pulling and tugging so she got out the famous clippers and voila, no more matts!!!
She did leave it about an inch long all over my bod, except for the Crest which she left long since I am, after all, a Chinese CRESTED! Frankly, I love the new doo... if you are going to race thru wet snow and dirty mud it is much nicer to be wash and wear instead of having those lovely, long, flowing locks that need to be combed out every single day IF you run thru the snow and mud.
In spite of the groom, I did enjoy a nice day over at the kennel, and had an enjoyable lunch with Tonya and Mom.
Now I am enjoying a nice evening reading my new comments and checking out my new gifts, including some GREAT MEATZ from Zaidie!!!! Thanks, Pal. Are you gonna be at the Valentines pawty??? Could you head East first in your Lear Jet and pick us up??? Thanks, again.
