Arrival Story:
I have loved Akitas since seeing my first one 15 years ago. So, when it came time to appease my daughter and adopt a dog, I researched Akitas to see how well we would get along. I found that Akitas were the breed for me - catlike. LOL Very independent, only needing to be bathed occasionally not every week, loyal, protective, stubborn, and highly intelligent. So, I searched the papers, internet, etc. for Akita puppies. Lo and behold, I found Keno!! And what a find.......Keno is the sweetest, loviest (yet naughtiest) dog I've ever met. And oh so comical. He can melt your heart so quick with one cocked glance at you (this despite whatever terror he has wreaked). He's the perfect fit for our family and we love him to pieces. He goes everywhere we go, he especially likes going to Kalli's soccer games (what dog wouldn't like a bunch of little girls chasing a ball for 45 minutes and getting treats afterward?) and the trails at River Legacy Park.

Although Keno is the size of a small pony (most people ask where his saddle is), he's a gentle giant. He loves meeting people, but has shown his protectiveness when he's felt things "aren't quite right". He also loves meeting other dogs, not typical of an Akita from all my research. But, he goes to daycare twice a week and his caregiver says he's just an awesome dog (I'm so proud). He also loves going to the dog park where he'd run and play for hours if I'd let him. He's just the sweetest "baby" I've ever known.

I'm Too Naughty for Myself.....

Santa Paws was Here!!!

Christmas is great!!!! I got so many new toys/stuff and this after all the naughties I've done since living with my mom. This Santa Paws guy is pretty forgiving....much like my Mom.....hmmmmmmmmm......interesting. Well, anyways, lemme tell you what I got. I got a new Kong, a black one (Mom's hoping it lasts longer and keeps me occupied longer than my red one). BOL, crazy woman! I also got some new food and water bowls, the raised kind cause I'm a bit bigger now...just a bit. ;-)

I got so many new treats that Mom had to rearrange the cabinets. And toys!! Oh boy!! I got so many new toys that Mom has to go buy another toy basket to hold them all! My grandma bought me this leather squeaky toy cause she knows how much I love the taste of leather (why didn't she just buy me a piece of carpet? I love the taste of carpet also). Well, that leather toy didn't last long, in fact it lasted all of 5 seconds. Mom and Grandma just stood there with their mouths gaping open while I smiled at them showing off my handiwork. I even desqueaked it! I kept hearing this voice in my head, kill, kill, this thing must be destroyed. BMTO!!! Destroy it I did! It's now but a memory.

We had family come in town and it was nice to see them. I met my mom's cousin's kitten...they thought I was trying to eat it, but really I was just trying to give it a Christmas kiss. ;-) Since my family's Italian, I got some baked ziti and meatballs as well as my Christmas bone - Thanks Grandma!! You feed me well!!

So, now New Year's is coming up and there's talk of Mom going out of town, where's Shreveport? And what's there that she can't take me? I've never been away from my mom overnight before......this is really starting to worry me. Maybe she'll change her mind and just stay home with me. There is no better company than me anyways!!! Please Mom? Either take me with you or just stay home.....please, please?

Mournfully yours,


Without a Winter Wonderland

Okay, so I know we live in North Texas but this is ridiculous. All day Wednesday there was talk of how we were gonna get hit with snow and ice so people left work early and schools starting listing closings for Thursday. I made Mom take me outside to potty at midnight and there were patches of ice, but nothing else. Mom said, well maybe it'll be here when we wake up.

NOPE!!!! Yes, it got icy enough to cause the majority of school's to close in the metroplex, but no snow. Nothing to romp around in. I did pull mom a bit on the ice when I made a mad dash for my potty spot. I really had to go. ;-p
She screamed so loud that I looked back at her like what? tehe I just love tormenting this woman. It's funny.

Mom says we may still see some snow as winter is just starting so I'm keeping my paws crossed. I love seeing the pics of you fellow dogsters playing in the snow. I want to experience that too (course, I'm only eight months so I'm bound to at some point in my life......if we move up north *hint, hint* Mom).

I better log off and sulk some more. Only in Texas can it be (with the wind chill) 5 degrees on Thursday and 63 degrees on Sunday.



My First Trip to the Bar.....

Mom took me to a bar last night. I couldn't believe my lucky stars! And this after she came home to find I chewed up more of the leather loveseat.....again! I thought I'd be in the doghouse for sure after that, but nope, I even drank Mom's beer. Again, she wasn't pleased with that but, still no dog house. :)

This bar place is too cool. You can bring you dog so long as he/she is leashed and not aggressive. Well, Mom wouldn't think to NOT leash me as I'd run away and I'm not aggressive at all (I know, strange for an Akita, but really, I'm not). I love to play with other dogs and I love to meet new people. Mom's been taking me out with her since I was four months old though.

What a life I lead! Beer, bars, blondes (yeah, Mom's friend is a blonde and boy did she have a thing for me - heheh), football, what more could a guy ask for?

Tail wags,
