Yep, I'm a pit bull!

I'm a dock diver!

Pandora is jealous but that's OK. She used to be really good at jumping in the air but she gets sore after a lot of that so Mom doesn't really let her do so much jumping anymore. Plus she just doesn't like the water as much as me. She told me she doesn't see the point in swimming unless there's a toy in the water. I just like to swim anyway.

I won a blue ribbon but mostly I just had a lot of fun jumping off the dock. I don't know why I had to sit and wait for other dogs, I just wanted to do that all day long.

I hope we do it again because it was REALLY fun. Mom got me a special purple squeaky ball (my favorite toy ever) to jump after and when she wasn't looking I stole it out of the toy bag after I was done swimming and I ate part of it.

I mean didn't like swallow it or anything. I just like to eat those squeaky balls to kill the squeaker. Mom wasn't very happy with me because she told me it was brand new and she'd already sunk Pandora's brand new red Kong ball because she thought it would float. I thought it would float too and I jumped in and looked for it, but I guess it sunk. Oh well. Pandora got a new frisbee to make up for it and she likes frisbees better anyway.

Here's a video of me doing my first jump: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyAaLnXQjBs

I hope we can do it again soon!

 

I have a twin sister

Well I guess she's kind of my twin. She showed up at the same shelter I showed up at 5 years ago.

Mom is wondering if we're from the same litter or what, but we're not telling. It's good to keep people guessing.

This is Millie and me:

Millie even likes to chase squirrels like me!

Mom says she's a lot like me but she's way more mellow. I guess that's because Millie likes to roll around on her back for belly rubs while I race around the yard playing and jump in the air and stuff.

Pandora is even nice to Millie. Pandora isn't usually all that gracious to foster dogs, but I guess she's being nice because Millie is family.

Anyway, Millie needs a home. I haven't told her that she's not staying here forever, so I hope she finds some really nice people to take her home so she doesn't miss us too much!

 

I've been tagged too!

Pandora thought she was the only one who got to play, but she was wrong. Tag, I'm it!

I guess I have to list the rules:

"Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!"

OK, here's my list:

1. I am all terrier when it comes to tiny fuzzy prey animals, and have managed to catch 2 squirrels. I am very proud of myself - this isn't easy, Pandora can't catch a squirrel to save her life - but Mom doesn't seem to be very happy with my successes. Hmm.
2. Though I've bested squirrels, skunks have bested me. I just got skunked for the fourth time last week. (Mom's not real happy about that, either.)
3. I have a vertical leap that would make Michael Jordan envious, and can spring straight up off my four paws, upwards of 6 feet in the air.
4. I love to put your arm in my mouth when I'm feeling really lovey about you.
5. The command "Bitey Bear" is what you give me if my lovey arm bite is annoying you, and I'll go get a stuffed animal to carry around instead.
6. I am very afraid of cows. (I guess I don't deserve the "bull" in my breed name.)
7. I am also very afraid of loud noises like thunder and fireworks and surround sound (though I got more used to that), and I will make myself veeeeeeery small and curl up at the back of Mom's shoe closet (or in the sock basket or in another available closet) if any of these scary noises come up.

OK, here's who I tagged (shout out to old SmoFo pals):

Martin
Midge
Ms. Kitty
Mac
Max
Jones
Cowboy

 

I don't like contests

You know, I love Pandora a lot. She's my sister, and we get along, and she shows me the way in the world. But for the past few days she's been really... (hold on, let me ask Mom the word...)

insufferable. That's the word.

I mean, I'm happy for Pandora. She deserves to show off her stuff and all, but I mean really. She keeps telling me that Mom is going to get all sorts of cool dog prizes and that she's not going to share them with me!

Mom is telling me not to worry, that we all know who the Alpha Bitch of the house is (I guess that's Mom), and that she'll be sure to share the spoils of Pandora's win with me and whatever foster dog happens to be here at the time.

I didn't want to point this out before, but I am in the 2007 "Unexpected Pit Bull" calendar, and it's for charity, and Pandora is NOT. So there.

I am Mr. October. And it has 31 days. And even though my month only has 31 days and Pandora has 365 with her title, I'll be hanging for the whole year and anyone who has it can look at me whenever they want. So there again.

I don't want to be... what's the word?

competitive. or conceited. both words are what I don't want to be, but I'm also a little proud that I'm in a calendar, even if I'm wearing a blue feather boa.

Mom has outed me already, and I'm not ashamed of my lifestyle, but I don't really feel the need to be so flamboyant all the time. A nice sweater will do just fine.

OK, I'm done now.

Living with the World's Coolest Dog (sigh),

Gunther.

 

I'm in a contest!

Pandora told me to blog about the contest we're in. She seems kind of bossy and snippy about her picture being in my contest entry, but that's OK. Sometimes she gets like that.

So, here's my link: Yay for Gunther

Don't vote for the Pandora picture, if it's still up. That's not me.

Here's Pandora

 

I don't have opposable thumbs

Pandora's been lecturing me on the importance of "blogs." I don't really understand all this tech-stuff, but I guess I should say hello to all the nice people sending me notes and messages. Hello people!

Last week I was in a photo shoot for "The Unexpected Pit Bull" calendar for 2007. They made me put on a blue feather boa and stand around touristy spots in San Francisco. Now, I'm happy to lend a hand in the name of good PR for the other gay, boa-wearing pit bulls out there, but it was kind of embarrassing to stand around posing while a bunch of random people took my picture.

The good part was spending a nice day with Mom, who spared me the Liberace cape and the Doggles for a change.

Woof.

 

Hey neat, a diary.

Hi everyone! Pandora told me that I had to get online and use this diary thing to say hi to all my Dogster pals. I guess Mom didn't tell us we could talk to people. Well, good thing Pandora's around to figure this stuff out and tell me what to do.

So, I had a lot of messages about my costumes. I'd like to let everyone know that this isn't really my idea, Mom always has me in parades and at events and she thinks these outfits are fun and hilarious and whatever. I think they're kind of embarrassing, but I do get lots of fun attention and pets from strangers - which is nice, because sometimes strangers are afraid of me for no reason. And I just want to meet anyone and everyone and make new friends. Mom says this is a "breed overreaction," whatever that means. Even Pandora's confused on that one.

So anyway, hello to all my Dogster pals. It's getting sunny out there and that means that I have to get slathered in sunblock every time we go outside. I hate it, but Mom says it makes me smell like "vacation." I guess that's good.

OK, I'll write more later when Pandora reminds me.

Oh, Pandora says to tell everyone that we're going to be in Weekend Magazine in an article about dog-friendly workplaces. I think it's coming out this month, on Sunday. I'm sure Pandora will let you know when she knows the date, she's much more into that stuff than I am (though I do like getting my picture taken).

Woof!
