Arrival Story:
I have been wanting an indoor dog ever since my now ex-husband and I got married but he never showed much interest in the idea. One day at work, he sent me an email with a picture of a Cairn Terrier puppy and I about fell out of my chair. He had done some research on the breed and really liked what he had read about them. We decided that we should go for it. After some research, we found a nice breeder who had some puppies available. She sent us a picture of the 3 females in the litter. We pulled up the picture and both of us pointed to Savannah at the same time and said "I like her". And so it was! One month later when she was finally old enough to leave her Mom, we made the long 6 hour journey to pick her up. The first time I saw her in person, I fell in love with her. I knew that Savannah had found her forever home.

Savannah is a little dog with a BIG personality! She is known for tilting her head to the side when you talk to her, and for putting her ears flat up against her head when she gets excited. She has become my shadow, following me around the house EVERYWHERE that I go! It is a good thing that she is such a joy to have around!

Forums Motto:
If it moves, bark at it.

Ok, so if you will notice, I GRADUATED from training already in 2005 and now I am going to training again? Am I not great enough already??? If they keep training me like this, someone is going to come steal me because I am going to be SOOOO great that everyone will want me. Then they will be sorry....



The Scary Dark Place

This weekend, my Daddy was getting the trash ready to be taken outside so he was in the kitchen. He had this cabinet door open in what Mommy calls the island (sure doesn't look anything like those islands they show on TV). Anyway, I decided it was high time for me to check this island thing out so I crawled inside. Next thing I know, my Daddy had put the trash can back in the island and before I could so much as take a step he had shut the door with me still inside!!!! I was inside for what seemed like an hour (Mom said it was only about 5 minutes) and I heard Mommy calling me. "YEAH" I thought, "I have been rescued!" But then the calling got further away. Soon, I heard her go ask my Daddy if he had seen me. He told her no so he started helping her look for me. FINALLY, Daddy opened the door to the island and out I came! I was SOOOO relieved that I had been found! Mommy came running in the room and was loving on me and petting me. I was so happy until she asked me why I didn't cry or bark when I heard them calling my name. Geez! I wish I had thought of that!!!


Obedience Class - August 24, 2005

My Mommy enrolled me in PetSmart obedience classes because she said that it was high time for me to learn some manners. This was the first time that I have ever been in PetSmart (Mommy was scared I would embarass her around all those other dogs and their parents). Mommy said that I did very well. I was sure excited to see those dogs but I didn't bark as much as Mom thought. One thing is for sure, school is a lot of hard work. We have homework and Mommy makes sure that I practice everyday! Mom says that I am the cutest one in the class. She is so embarassing sometimes....

So far, I have been to 3 weeks of the class and I have learned sit, down, watch me, take it, leave it, and a bunch more. In fact, last week I won a toy in the fastest sit contest. Mom and Dad were so proud! I was actually pretty proud of myself too.

I have also found a boyfriend. His name is Oscar and he is a 4 month old black lab. The first time that I saw him, I had happy pee, and ever since, I can't keep my eyes off him. Mom says that I am fixed so I shouldn't be interested in him (whatever that means!) I don't care what she says, I like him a lot!
