Playing and being with Mommy.

Not being with Mommy, being around other dogs, being bored.

Favorite Toy:
Anything floppy, kongs, balls, squeaky toys, our cats.

Favorite Food:
Pork rinds, peanut butter, well...everything. Matsi hasn't tasted anything he didn't like except the organge flavored rawhide rings.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere and everywhere.

Best Tricks:
Matsi can do anything I can teach him. So far he knows: sit, down, stay, wave, back up, stand, spin, drop/leave it, go get /find it, stop, look under bed/in crate, get on/off , go in/out, get in back seat, left/right heel, get behind, stay back.

Arrival Story:
We were at some local stables. I saw the precious puppy across the barn and went over and picked him up, looked into his eyes, and fell head over heels. I couldn't get him out of my mind. I had heard of, but knew nothing about, Australian Cattle Dogs. I researched the breed on the internet that night. The next day, he came home with us. Someone else had wanted him but said we could take him. They don't know what they're missing. He's my bestest little buddy and I love him dearly. I couldn't imagine life without my little velcro.

I had to go to the hospital because I hurt my dewclaw again. They're taking them off since I keep hurting them. I can't wait to come home from the hospital. This is the first time I have been away from home without my mommy. It will be a long night...


Bilateral Medial Luxating Patellaes

I found out yesterday that both of my knees have to have surgery. My doctor said that I have bilateral medial luxating patellaes, meaning my knee caps keep popping out. He said that it isn't an emergency to do it real soon, but it will help me to not get arthritis and have more pain later in my life. Mom and Dad will save up for me to have it done, one knee at a time. I'm not looking forward to it. Mom isn' t either because after my other surgery, I was trembling and it scared her. She later found out that some dogs tremble after being under anesthesia. Mom just doesn't like to see me hurting. Mom and Dad are restricting my activity so my knees don't start hurting and making me limp. They love me so much! I love them, too!

I looooooooove going to Fall Creek Falls State Park in Tennessee! It has waterfalls, cascades, trails, a lake, and lots of things do and smell! It's the best place to go on vacation with your humans. They even let Mommy and Daddy stay in the hotel room with me. Life can't get any better! I can't wait til we get to go again!
