Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

February 14th 2001

To sit on the back of the couch and look out the window for any moving object in the front yard!

I absolutely HATE the mailman. I also hate my feet touched! NO nail trims for me!!!

Favorite Toy:
My little red squeaky ball...I had about 6 but they all stopped squeaking :( Now I have an oversized burger!

Favorite Food:
Cheese!!! I love cheese! I'll turn everything else down at times, but I'll never get sick of cheese!

Favorite Walk:
I cant walk very far....i have a bad back. But I love going around the block

Best Tricks:
I can sit pretty for a very long time! It gets me alot of treats! I also know when its time to get locked in the bathroom cause a stranger is coming over....OH! And when a cell phone rings, I start barking cause I know a person I LOVE is comin' to me!

Arrival Story:
My family had 1 doggie who was very lonely because her best friend for years, Friday, passed away. They waited a long time, over a year, and then felt that it was time to get another little dog. That's where I come in!! I was stuck in a shelter and had been there almost my whole life...which was about a year then. I overheard them saying that they had other animals. I like other doggies so that wouldn't be a problem. But i didn't really like cats at the time and they had THREE! When they told the shelter that they had cats. The shelter thought it would be a good idea to see if I would get along with cats before the family adopted me. So they put me in an office with one of the "local cats". All I wanted to do was chase it!! But i REALLY liked this family and i REALLY wanted a home. So, I didn't pay a bit of attention to the cat. I just sat there like a little sweetie, on my best behavior. So the shelter allowed them to adopt me! When I got to my new home, I was so happy! They decided it would be a good time to slowly introduce me to my new "cat family"......well now that I knew I was a keeper, I took off like a streak of lightening chasing after the cats! Luckily my human family thought it was hilarious!, But don't worry, after just a day or two, I realized that the cats were my friends and we even sleep together now. See our pics to see all my family...

Geez! I cant believe im 7 years old! It's starting to take a toll on my body....But ever since my mommy got a new pup, it's kinda brought me back to being a youngster again! Even though I can't play rough, I love acting young now, and I'm not so grumpy cause I'm taking aspirin now and not in constant pain!

Forums Motto:

Woof! Just some updates on lil' ole me. I hurt myself awhile back . Im not sure how. I dont even know if it was my hind legs, or my back because it just ached everywhere!. I couldnt do ANYTHING! I couldnt walk, and food just didnt taste good to me! I didnt eat dog food for a very long time! So my mommy thought cooking me up some hamburger meat, how could i resist? But i even denied that!! Everything they gave me, I turned down. So, I lost a LOT of weight. Everyone was so worried. I was still a good girl. Even though I couldnt even get up by myself, i always waited for someone to take me outside, not wanting to make messes in the house. Since i wasn't walking, I lost a lot of muscle too! But worst of all.....I couldnt jump on the couch and look out my window to bark at people on bikes, other dogs, joggers, and especially THE MAIL MAN!! This lasted for months!!

My owners finally came up with something i would eat...Beef and chicken pot pies! They thought they were tricking me by adding in some dog food, and i would just eat around it.

Well after months of rest im finally doing better. They give me baby aspirin everyday. Ive gained all my weight back (and then some)! I can get up and walk, and even run (but not too fast)!. As long as the other doggies are careful around me, I love to play! I get to look out the window. And just the other day i did my old trick (the one im known for)...Sitting pretty (or standing on my back feet). I still need help climbing up things but my family is always there for me.

I went for a walk the other day (I hadnt gone in FOREVER)! It was so cool! So many smells. Im very happy Im doing A LOT better!

Now...Back to barking at people in the window...
I just know my family loves what a good watch dog I am!

Dear Diary,
Well, here I am! It's about time my mommy has decided to give me a diary! First off let me tell you, I don't have long to sit here.......I have to get back on the couch and stare out the window! That is my most favorite place to be. I even bark at the wind. Hey, if it moves, I bark. hehheh...drives my people crazy at times! But, nothing will ever get by me!
Anyway, I love this Dogster thing, it's really cool! Catster is awesome too, I even bark at the cats there!
BUT, okay....I have to tell these people/pets here at something........., I NEED MORE PALS! I am friendly and fun loving, give me a chance here. I am going to take some pics today and put them up there...then I will get more paws! I'm a real cutie, I will show them! woof! woof!

Uh-oh, I hear something............I have to go for now, but I will be back soon!
