December 25th 2004

Running, eating, obedience school, chewing on Amber, our other dog, and chasing the cats. AND HE LOOOVES ABBY!!!!!

Baths even though he loves water if its his idea to play in it, getting his face blown on

Favorite Toy:
Rope toy, Amber's face

Favorite Food:
Any dog treats. Especially Canine Carry-Outs and Pupperoni. He gets confused when he gets people food. He always begs for it but doesn't quite know how to eat it.

Favorite Walk:
absolutely anywhere as long as he can run free for a while.

Best Tricks:
Basic obedience commands, go to bed, speak, crawl, over, through(my legs), no kitty, leave it, wait, shake, high five, and stay on the lawn. Good dog!

Arrival Story:
At our towns annual Almond Blossom Festival, a lady had a box of three cattle dogs and my cousin took one home without telling her mom. Her mom said, "absolutely no we already have two dogs." Nobody else could take him so we took home 9 week old Pete on February 25, 2005.

Pete is the sweetest dog on the planet!! He absolutely looves me! When i get home from school he runs up to me and tries to wag his tail, but wiggles his whole body instead. He will do absolutely anything to please me. He is without a doubt the BEST dog i have EVER had!!

Well, my family has gotten into The Dog Whispere and oh boy am i a happy pooch! Cesar Millan is amazing and if you havent heard of him go to and check him out. He rehabilitates dogs of ther behavior problems. He makes it look easy, but it does take practice. It's not just going to happen in a day like he sometimes makes it seem.

My moms been really looking hard for a nearby agility trainer. She does know of one right here in Ripon, so she emailed her yesterday and is waiting to hear back. Silly mommy, she's been looking all over the place for a "local" trainer and the whole time she knew (but apperantly forgot) that my old obedience trainer also trains in agility! So we are very excited to hear back from Mrs. Hartly and see whats going on.

More soon!!

On Sunday I was playing outside with my mommy and i jumped up to get a toy she was holding out and then i fell into a sprinkler hole. I just layed there and didnt move at all so my momma thought i had paralyzed my back legs. She was happy when i finally did get up, but i wouldnt put any weight on my back left leg. she got pretty scared so we went inside and decided to call the vet in the morning. I went in with mommy's mommy because she had to go to school.

Anyways, the vet said i probably had some torn ligaments. So they took some X-rays, put me in a big embarrasing purple splint and sent me home. we were reffered to an orthopedic surgeon. I hope i dont need surgery. this stupid cast thing is enough for me! Well im hurting pretty bad and my ommy is really worried so keep us in your prayers!!!


Another puppy! Running free! New person! New Place!!

Yesterday was the most exciting day ever!! My mommy really wants me to do this thing called... uh-jil-u-dee(??), but I'm not quite sure wat that is. She says I'd be totaly perfect for it. So anyways, yesterday she put me in the car and mommy's mommy drove us to Turlock to meet an uhjil-- a trainer and it was so fun! there was this big open field and another puppy thats only a month younger than me!! We ran and ran and ran and jumped in to a big tub of water than ran more and jumped more and had a blast! while my mommy talked to the trainer. Now she's really excited and wants to do that thing even more!! If it's gonna be running and jumping like i did yesterday, I'm all for it. I guess the trainer said I would be great for agility(my mommy told me how to spell that! :-D) so, that has momma in high hopes. But my mommas only a kid so she has to convince her momma to drive her all the way to Turlock once a week to take classes. *sigh* It's all so compicated!! O, well. just pray that we get to do it!!!!!
