Quick Bio:

Likes:
Chasing her ball and playing with her toys...oh and attention from anyone

Pet-Peeves:
Storms, loud noises, birds invading her territory, low flying Pelicans, baths, you name it. She is slightly neurotic..actually more than slightly :)

Favorite Toy:
Teaser ball and a wide variety of stuffed toys including a cow, Garfield, elephant, skunk..the list goes on.

Favorite Food:
Cat food, liver treats and Krispy Kreme's...original glaze only.

Favorite Walk:
Any..except along the beach. The noise of the surf scares her. I told you she was neurotic.

Best Tricks:
Catching toys and touching targets

Arrival Story:
Rescued her from the Animal Welfare League. She is spoilt rotten and loves it. She is a constant source of entertainment and everyone who comes into contact with her loves her, except for the gardener, but that's another story. :)

Bio:
Well we cured the barking habit...I hope. Thanks to a $200.00 citronella collar. At first I thought she would be the only dog to like citronella, but it eventually seemed to do the trick. Now we just have to stop her from chasing the wild birds out of the yard. One step at a time :)

Forums Motto:
But mum...the other dog barked first

I've Been On Dogster Since:

My life as a dog


My new collar

Well Mum finally gave up on the Citronella collar. I knew she would if I just kept barking, but I didn't think it would take her this long. Thank god she would rather spend her money buying herself new shoes.

It felt great to have that thing gone from around my neck and freedom was mine..well for a few brief moments anyway. Next thing out comes Mum with my brand new bright orange collar. As if the colour wasn't horrible enough, when she put it on me I felt these two prongy things in my neck I had no idea what they were for...until I barked. Man what a shocking experience, but it sure did shut me up quick smart.

Mum is very happy because I have barked only a few very short barks in the past day so she thinks she has won. We'll see..after all they don't call me Lucyfer for nothing :)

 

They took my anti bark collar of....fools

Since this morning was Sunday I thought I would wake my family up at 6.00am with a wonderful rendition of the Lucy Concerto. Funny, I don't think Mum appreciated it though. She opened the laundry door and came out into the back yard with her nightie stilll on, looking very sleepy and told me to be quiet.

When I knew she was safely back in bed I barked a few more times. After all that's what they get for taking that smelly collar off me. Mmmm..I love the smell of Cintronella in the morning. Maybe tomorrow morning I will start barking at 5.00am :)
