Likes: To play outside with the cats and eat poop. He also loves to chase and eat bugs.
Pet-Peeves: Being woken up, getting his hair brushed, and balloons. He also doesn't like it when the cats steal his prey (mostly bugs)
Favorite Toy: A little puppy dog, shoes, socks, squirrel tree thing, and underwear.
Favorite Food: Steak Bones!!!
Favorite Walk: Anywhere he can go where we can't catch him - especially the barn.
Best Tricks: His one and only trick is fetching his toys - but he's learning how to sit and lay down.
Arrival Story: I was on vacation when my mom, my sister, and my niece picked up Brody. They surprised me with the puppy, even though he is technically my mom's puppy. Since I was living at home after graduation, I stayed with the puppy all day and he and I became quite attached to each other. I was so happy when I came home from my trip and I had the cutest little puppy in the world waiting at home for me.
Bio: Brody is the sweetest puppy. He loves everybody. He greets everybody with kisses and likes to be recognized by anyone walking in the house. I am extremely overprotective of my puppy and I won't let anybody do anything mean to him, so he is rather spoiled. He gets "human" food whenever possible, but he is picky. He doesn't like doughnuts, popcorn, or cookies. The food has to be just right for him to eat it. Brody only has kitty friends at home, but they like to play with him. Brody has a big family that comes over all of the time, and he loves to play with everybody, no matter what their age. The little kids scare him sometimes (a little too hyper), but he loves them anyways. Brody is a country dog and he acts like it. He plays in the mud, chases wild animals away (mostly squirrels), and he loves to run free. Unfortunately, he is so tiny that he can squeeze through fences so his running free space is limited, especially now that he has learned how to escape.
Forums Motto: The best things come in little packages
Special Skills: Pouncing on sleeping people to wake them up, sneaking out of slightly cracked doors, ignoring his mom when he has gotten out of the fence, shredding paper, breaking sticks, and cracking open acorns
Well, my mom says my birthday isn't until tomorrow, but I think she is wrong because yesterday was the best day ever. I got TONS of turkey! Not only turkey, but also ham, duck, bacon, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pumpkin pie, sweet potatoe pie, green beans, salami, cheese, chicken wings, and I don't even know what else! I overheard someone say that they do this every year. Well, why wasn't I ever invited? Probably because of that big Boomie-Dog. Everyone thought he would chomp off my head in one clean swoop,but he's actually quite friendly. I'll have to show you the pictures of us waiting patiently for turkey. I made him wait in line behind me. Ironically, I was always first in line. Hehehehe. For a big dog, he sure does let me push him around.
My mom is about to take me shopping for my birthday. She already got me some presents (I peeked! I got a pup tent..hehe, blankie, Santa costume *rolls eyes*, and a toy). I also get a free toy from Petsmart. AND my mom said we have to go get treats for my friends for my birthday party. What's up with that? Its my birthday and I have to give them treats and pizzles? My mom must have lost her mind. I guess that leaves less money for my mom to spend on sweaters and other stupid stuff. That's good.
Oh yeah! I'm also going to officially have a dad! Whoo-hoo! My dad gave my mom this rock. My mom showed it to me but it was stuck to her finger and I was like "So, is there chicken inside of it or what? What's the big deal?" My mom seems to love it. Why would anyone love something that doesn't taste like chicken? I don't know.
I gotta get ready for my shopping trip. Happy Howlidays everyone!!!
WoW! My parents have been taking me on a lot of walk, though my mom takes me on more ;) We walk around our neighborhood, the river, the park, the lake - we go everywhere! Its so fun. My parents try to plan their daily outings around me because, well, I'm so much fun to be with. How could they possibly leave me at home while they go do something fun?
I've been busy chasing those nasty little squirrels. I came thisclose to catching one the other day. He didn't even see me! Then a few days later, I was chasing one and my mom thought he was going to run up a tree, well I knew better and I cut him off as he ran around the tree and I could almost taste that guy in my mouth I was so close. If it weren't for that stupid string my mom attached to my back, I would have been able to get him.
So I had my first adventure at the lake the other day. I wasn't that impressed, to tell you the truth. I had to step on rocks to get in the water. It was sooooooo hot outside, and really, I just didn't want to go swimming. It was kind of dirty and gross. I was, however, very interested in finding dead fish and rolling in them.
That's the extent of my adventures. I spend most of my days staring out the windows, searching for squirrels. Oh yeah, my mom made me go to the dogter. I got 3 shots, a microchip, and my blood taken. I don't know what I did to deserve that but it must have been something bad (maybe because I like to eat duck poop?). My mom said that microchip is so if I get lost or run away, hopefully they'll be able to contact my mom. I said, "Mom, if I run away, its probably because you made the dogters stick me all these needles! You were better off before the microchip."
I hope my mom gets off the computer soon and takes me to the park. I haven't gotten to go anywhere in like 3 days!!
Well, dogs and humans, I'm leaving for Tennessee in just a few days. I would be excited if it didn't mean I have to ride in a car for nine hours, only to arrive at an apartment! Whoever invented apartments obviously didn't have dogs. The good news is that my mom gets to be a "stay-at-home dog-mom" for a while. So its just going to be me and my mom hanging out all day and I bet she'll let me chase the ducks at our new pond. That will be amazing!
My mom has been so used to being a single mom, or at least a co-mom with her mom, that she thinks its kinda crazy that I'll have a "dad" now! Weird! I wonder what my "dad" thinks of that. I'm sure he can't wait. Heeheeehee.
Well, that's about all that's going on with me. I was supposed to go get my shots yesterday but I got out of it because my mom thought I would be stressed with the move and everything and didn't want to "compromise my immune system" as she put it. I'm going to put off those shots for as long as possible! My dogter did tell me that I have tarter on my back teeth so my mom is digging out that stupid toothbrush again. I said, "Mom! I swear, I'll start chewing on my pizzles!" but she hasn't seen any improvement. Soooo...here comes that stupid toothbrush. She must have forgotten that those teeth are made for biting!
