Swimming! Food, belly rubs, all of her friends at BDC , going on rides and shopping at PetCo or PetSmart, chasing geese with Dex , supervising when Grandma cooks

Anyone touching her feet, the evil vet, Dex always being in her way

Favorite Toy:
Missy loves her special bed, her bankie, her tennis ball and Mommie's wooly jacket

Favorite Food:
Missy's never met a food she doesn't like, well, except lettuce.

Favorite Walk:
Walking around Lake Phalen or Lake Como, there's always something to chase!

Best Tricks:
Turning the faucet in the bath tub on when she's thirsty, opening the door and grazing in the 'fridge.

Arrival Story:
We went to the animal shelter where we had gotten a guinea pig before and walked into the large dog area. Missy was lost and forlorn (and less then three days away from being euthanized) and had the biggest, brownest, saddest eyes my daughter and I had ever seen, and that was it. She went home with us and has never looked back.

Missy and her brother, Dex, love chasing the squirrels, birds and anything that comes into our yard. Missy is fiercely protective of Dex and her two human charges (her little girl and Dex's little boy) and will not let anyone hurt them. She has also been Auntie to many a litter of kittens as well as several guinea pigs.

Forums Motto:
Dex is always in my way!

Missy slipped away to the Rainbow Bridge on September 4, 2006. She put up a valiant fight after having a stroke on July 11, 2006. She never surrendered, even when she could no longer stand. She scooted around the floor and gave new meaning to the term "underfoot." She stayed with the family until she knew everyone was okay with the news of her great grandmothers illness as Great Grandmother was hospitalized with liver cancer on July 11, 2006. Great Grandma crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on August 27, 2006 and was there to greet Missy. Missy's little girl said she understands that Great Grandma needed Missy more than we did, right now.

All the same, I 'm gonna miss her terribly. She leaves some very big bad dog paws to fill.....

All my love,

Dexter, Missy's brother

Help me fix the mess he made!!! He tore up all the stuffies searching for a squeaker in a teddy bear.... Then he marked all the presents under the tree and the tree. He says it's all his!!!

He ate all the peanut butter cookies that were cooling on the counter. He didn't leave ONE crumb for me....

Now I'm afraid that Santy Paws won't come for me since he's been so bad today.... does ONE day count??? Or will Santy Paws overlook it for the whole rest of the year.....

Oh, this waiting stuff is killing me.... Hurry, Christmas, before all the SNOW melts here....




It's been a LONG time

And a hot sumer that's FINALLY over and we're now enjoying a warm fall.

It was just too hot to do a lot of bad dog deeds this summer. We're making up for it though. The mild fall has lured the GEESE into hanging around and Dex and I have been chasing them AND the evil squirrels every chance we get!

The holidays are right around the corner, I see the pumpkins and the baking supplies coming in the house and I know the pumpkin pies and bread aren't far behind!

Now that things are settling in, maybe Grandma will sign into DOgster more often so that I can update my diary more often...

Bark at you later!
