Arrival Story:
I went to Austin Town Lake Animal Shelter and intended to get another dog, but when I saw Possum, I couldn't resist. On the day I took him home, he relieved himself all over the front seat. It took me forever to potty train him, and when he finally got it. I saved so much money on paper towels, spot removers, and carpet cleanings. As hard as this experience has been, I am having a great time learning from him each day. I was so happy to put on his graduation cap on when he finished his puppy training course.

Possum was nightmare as a puppy, but he's finally grown up to be a very sweet, lovable dog. He enjoys nothing more than playing fetch and eating ice cubes afterwards. He paces back and forth until he gets his way, and always has a big smile on his face. He loves being the center of attention, and every chance he gets to wrassle, he just relishes it. He's a very cool hound, and we can't imagine life without him.

New Hound Bed

Recently I received a new bed because the last one was just wearing out fast. This new one is so much nicer and has a lot more cushioning. In the short time I've had it, I've already made a huge dent in it. It's great because I just sink right into that dent and sleep away all day long. Lately, I've been shedding like crazy in this hot Texas heat. There's hair all over the place, and Mommy does her best to vacuum it all up each week. The other big white dummy brushes me often too, and sometimes I get the muzzle because he thinks I will bite him when I'm getting brushed. I got scolded the other day because I was pulling up carpet fibers. I'm sure I will get "The Enforcer" if I am caught in the act.


Catching flies

Today when Mommy finally got home from work, she and her roommate made steaks. I begged and begged, sat patiently, and boy, what a sucker she is each time I give her my "hey, hey, look at me; I'm so cute" look. It never fails. The steak was delicious!! What a way to top it off with a nice piece of chicken basted rawhide.
After dinner I helped her catch flies who had gotten in when she opened the back door to let me out. Those things are fast! But they aren't faster than me. Aw, jumping through the air, snapping my jaw, taking down those flies one by one. Maybe Mommy will learn some tricks from me.
