Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

February 4th 2005

Liver treats & bullwinkles

Getting brushed and Mommy picking out his eye boogers

Favorite Toy:
Doozer likes any toy he can tear apart - but his 'stingray' stuffed animal seems to have outlived all the others.

Favorite Food:
Very partial to raw bison patties.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere with Daddy...or anywhere he doesn't have to wear his leash.

Best Tricks:
Jumping OFF the couch 2 seconds before we get home, and 'encouraging' us to take him for a walk after dinner by mercilessly staring at us until we move.

Arrival Story:
We met Doozer's mom, Tulip, two years ago at a Pet Show in Mississauga and fell in love with her. The breed is actually called 'Schapendoes' and they are Dutch sheepdogs; like English Sheepdogs, but 1/3 of the size. Tulip didn't have a mate yet but her owners were going to Germany to get her a 'boyfriend', so we decided to wait until they had a litter together. Two years later, Tulip & Billy were the proud parents to 6 beautiful puppies. Since we had been waiting for a puppy for 2 years, we got the pick of the litter - little Doozer. Sadly, four weeks after we brought Doozer home, we found out that his mom had died due to complications from her c-section. We consider ourselves very lucky to have one of Tulip's offspring.

Where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday that I was howling in my crate all day long; now I practically have the run of the house while Mommy and Daddy are at work.

Speaking of which, they sure spent a lot of time at home last week. And there were lots of parties and presents and people around, too. I don't know what was going on, but I'm glad we're back to normal now. But I did have fun at my first away-from-home Christmas party and New Year's Eve party (even if I did have a little accident on New Year's eve...I didn't want to disturb anyone by scratching on the door!).

And, most importantly, I met ANOTHER Schapendoe (we're pretty rare). His name is Harley and he goes to High Park on the weekend just like me and my cousin Morgan do. He's just a puppy, but I guess we'll let him play with us if he wants to.

I think that's it for now. I just want to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet (except the barking from the new dog next door) before Mom and Dad get home.



Nothin' Like Swimming on a Hot Day!

I'm sure glad Mom and Dad haven't decided to get me shaved because of the hot weather...I'm not suffering too much, and I know I would just look silly without my beautiful coat. But sometimes it is hot and it would be nice to get cool while still being outside.

That's why I'm soooo glad we went to the Beach (Toronto) on the weekend. Everyone was heading for the sand and the water, but we noticed that there was a nice big park close by so we went there and played frisbee for a while. It was getting pretty hot and we discovered that there was a pond on the other side of the hill with a big fountain in it, so we thought we'd go have a look. Well, when we got closer we noticed that there was a dog swimming in the pond!

Now, I know a good thing when I see it, so I walked right over to the edge of the water and laid down to cool off my belly. That felt so good that I decided to get completely wet, so I went for a swim. I couldn't go too far 'cause I was on the retractable leash, but I went far enough that I got nice and cool, practiced my strokes, and cleaned my fur all at the same time!

I could've stayed there all day, but eventually we had to leave (but we did stop for an ice cream on the way home - yum!). I can't wait to go back...

Hope everyone is having a gr-r-r-eat summer; stay cool!



So Lonely!!! :-(

I hate it when I have to be home alone; it's not fair! Everyone goes out and does fun stuff and I'm stuck here, looking out the window and howling.

Now I know what they mean when they say 'it's a dog's life' - I think I'd rather be a human!
