Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

July 5th 2003

to have as much of my body pressed against as much of a human body as caninely possible, licking (practically my profession), rambuncting

rain, when my tennis ball lands too close to a poop pile, having raspberries blown on my paws

Favorite Toy:
tennis ball

Favorite Food:
peanuts, moose nuggets, anything that can be scrounged from improbable places like on top of the fridge

Favorite Walk:
trail behind our cabin

Best Tricks:
begging for peanuts from the parrot, hurling headlong into snowbanks in pursuit of tennis balls

Arrival Story:
i was the dirtiest, skinniest, stinkiest, most poorly-trained dog at the animal shelter. i was missing half an ear from frostbite (i spent my first 7 months chained outside in an Alaskan winter), and had kennel cough. i jumped, escaped, ate poop, wasn't house-trained and had horrible separation anxiety. but the first thing i did was crawl into moms lap and lick her face (which was extra charming, given my poop-eating proclivities) and that was that. despite my miserable beginnings i am and have always been the most irrepressibly happy dog ever.

i look like a cross between a baby mountain gorilla and a muppet. my purpose in life is to get your unconditional love, approval and lap without having to do anything i don't want to do. i will only do what i am asked (and it better be politely) to do, never what i am told. i am obsessed with laps and employing my tongue for full-facial cleansing of humans. another one of my notable aspects is my locomotory capability. i am part mountain goat, cat burglar, and gazelle as far as anyone can tell. i literally climb chain link fence (paws in the holes), run up woodpiles, get on top of the fridge, flatten myself to go spelunking under the bed or cabin, and stot like a gazelle (springing into the air, all 4 paws up at once) when i am chasing a ball or trying to get a better look at something. i happen to know that i am the cowardly lion reincarnated, and have been known to bark once at a moose and then scram back down the trail to hide behind mom, with a ticked off moose hot on my heels...

Forums Motto:
professional exfoliator

Best Zoe-induced quotation:
"What the &*$%@#! Something large, black and hairy just flew by, kissed me on the lips and stole the cheescake out of my hand!"

Me: Zoe - you great muppet love-bug of a dog.

Zoe: Lick lick lick lick lick lick. Could you tilt your chin for a sec? I think I missed a spot under there.

Me: A more affectionate, exuberant, goofy, joyful, irrepressible, licking-obsessed dog has never graced this planet.

Zoe: Lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick lick. Mmmmmm. Ear wax.

Me: Zo - it's kinda hard to type with your tongue all over my face, and NO - the keyboard does not need cleaning.

Zoe: Lick lick lick lick. Schluuuuuuurp. Nibble nibble.

Me: Ow!

This is a special Tail of Devotion
