Best Tricks:
"paws" -- when she is on her back slumming for belly rubs, she'll wave her 2 front paws-- a tactic that no one can resist-- that states "pet me more!"

Arrival Story:
In August 2000, I wanted a Corgi in the worst way. We are strong believers in rescue, but could not find this breed in at local rescue groups. I started searching the net... became quite obsessed & found forpaws.org. Once I saw this funny looking dog , I knew I had to have her. We ended up flying her in from Missouri. She was very overweight, so now she's on a low fat diet and gets plenty of exercise.

Bio:
The previous woman who adopted Dalai as a puppy was quite elderly and was not able to give Dalai the exercise that was needed. Also she fed Dalai a lot of table food. Several months after we adopted her, we discovered she had a bladder full of stones. Luckily the emergency surgery went very well and now she has a clean bill of health. Dalai is funny... if she doesn't want to go out, she will NOT go out, or she'll drag her feet & take her good ole' time. Actually it's pretty smart because she gets extra pets when her sisters are outside & she's the only dog inside. Dalai is also our talker. She's very vocal about wanting a treat, needing to go out, wanting to go upstairs to bed (w/ us in tow). Dalai doesn't bark at everything that stirs like her sisters do... but when there's a time needed, her siberian husky high pitched bark could shatter glass. She also has a deeper bark for other situations. New pics loaded as of November 2004. She was just at the vet for her annual & weighs a svelt 41 lbs. if you want to view pics from year 2000 when we adopted her, click here: http://forpaws.org/success/success 2.htm Unfortunately, Dalai had a stroke Wed 2/28/07 and had to be put down Thur 3/1/07. Many will miss her. May she rest in peace. >>>Best Dog Trainer in the area is http://www.pbkennels.com/

A couple of weeks ago I had to get some teeth removed. I broke them while I was chewing a bone. I wasn't feeling so good, didn't want to eat. But now I feel so much better, I'm bounding around again, playing w/ my younger brother.

All week Dad kept saying "we are NOT keeping him", "he's going", "I'm contacting Aussie Rescue". Mom kept saying "look how bonded he is to us" (it's true, he was ridiculously happy waiving his tail nub when he saw us sisters, Mom & Dad, and our human brothers), "we should try to work with him" (I think she likes to take him on leash walks - I'm not a leash walk kind of dog, I like to explore ahead, and I listen, I wait & come when asked).

Today, you are not going to believe this! I heard Dad talking to Kay from ARPH today. HE TOLD HER WE ARE KEEPING HIM!

well that's cool. Guru was telling me he really didn't like where he was earlier this week & on wednesday. He said he was trying to be good so he could stay w/ us. He said even Kharma seemed to more want to play with him instead of snapping at him.

Maybe he'll be my boyfriend. I'm definitely cuter & smarter than Rani or Kharma (don't tell them I told you that). Besides no one can resist the 'paws' thing. Just give me a little more time, I'll have him wrapped around my little dewclaw.

Strange. I thought Mom was just taking Guru for a walk, but she came back without him. The crate is still here. I'm not sure what's going on.

Guru came home w/ Dad tonight. It was crazy, Guru was insanely hyper. I don't think he went on any walks. Oh, Guru told me he was at this place & locked up and then they gave him some medicine which made him very very tired. When he woke up, he kind of hurt down there, plus he was swollen. And no, no one would take him for a walk.

Well, despite Guru telling me this, He's still insanely humpy. Must not hurt that bad! He won't go to sleep tonight, he's driving everyone insane. Mom put him in his crate around 3:30am & then had to run downstairs at 4am since he was barking & howling like crazy. Then Dad got up way before his alarm. I don't know, I was comfy in my bed & didn't feel like going downstairs to check things out.

Mom & my human brother Darrell took him for a long walk this afternoon. Also Mom brought home some new toys & treats. We all got beef hooves. MMHMM they are so stinky but taste soooo good. I keep stealing Guru's which gets Mom & Dad all riled up. Hey, He's low dog on the totem pole.. besides it's not like he says anything when I take it. Hmm, maybe he's falling in love with me.
