Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

Birthday:
November 25th 2001

Likes:
Meeting people! And I love to lay upside down on mom's lap and get my belly rubbed - I'm a little spoiled... I also love chasing that wily chipmunk!

Pet-Peeves:
Baths, thunder and that crazy chipmunk out the window! I'll get him someday! OH! I have to also say that I strongly dislike it when I'm called a "Mutt"! I am an All-American!

Favorite Toy:
My laser pointer! I could chase that little red dot for days! Other than that, I don't really care for toys - I do like taking them out of their basket and lining the family room floor with them... Then I put them back.

Favorite Food:
I love the doggy birthday cake mom makes me and I love to beg for carrots!

Favorite Walk:
Through the yard and down the railroad tracks! I see all kinds of animals: coyotes, deer, bunnies... you name it!

Best Tricks:
Mom & I do dog agility through the USDAA - Its tons of fun and I've won a few ribbons! Buuutttt... we're kind of taking a break from that right now. We'll see where it goes!

Arrival Story:
Mom was looking for a companion and heard about some puppies a local rescue group would be showing at PetSmart. When she got there, those puppies were really loud and crazy! Just then, a volunteer came up to her with me (I had just been cleaned up, since I got "sick" during the car ride). It was puppy love at first sight, for the both of us! Problem was, I already had a few families signed up to take me home! As fate would have it, all of those other families fell through and I ended up with my mom! We wouldn't have it any other way!

Bio:
My biological mother (a German Shepherd) was found by the rescue group Because You Care, Inc. with me and my 2 siblings. I'm so happy they found us, because we were living just off a major highway, in the woods! Just want to give a big "PAWS UP" to Because You Care, Inc!

Forums Motto:
Where's that chipmunk?!

Lexi's DNA Test!

Well, we got my DNA test back and...... I'm a dog!

Actually, the DNA test came back without any positive "primary" breed, meaning that I do not have 50% or more DNA from a specific breed. I do, however, have a "secondary" breed match to the German Shorthaired Pointer breed. I found that interesting. I certainly have the pointing thing down pretty instinctively. I can point a squirrel or chipmunk out of any tree!

I also had one "in the mix" breed and that one was the Shetland Sheepdog! I've actually had a few Sheltie breeders and owners try to tell me that they thought I had to be part Sheltie. :)

Of course, at first glance I doubt anyone would have guessed those two breeds, but hey... Who would guess some of the heritage that mom's got in her? (You'd be surprised!) At the moment they can only trace 38 of America's most popular breeds, so that may also limit the findings. (I truly thought that there'd be some golden retriever or chow chow in there!)

If you want to find out anything further about the DNA test that we had done, their website is: http://www.metamorphixinc.com/products2a.html

Have a good one!

 

I be sportin' a peg leg!

So this weekend I was just being myself - running around really fast and looking cute while doing it - when all of a sudden my people swarmed around me. Supposedly I was limping. I think they're nuts - I don't notice anything! When mom got back home later she really pampered me and massaged my leg. I will never pass up a pampering, so I let her do it! Well, I guess I haven't stopped limping (I have 4 legs, what does it matter if I hold one up while I run?!) so mom took me to the vet yesterday. That crazy man put this big red wrap on my leg! How is that supposed to help me sneak up on those chipmunks?! Anyhow, mom can't stop laughing at me. She says I look and sound like a pirate with a peg leg. Hmph. At least she keeps cuddling me a lot! I guess I'm supposed to put up with this for 4 to 6 weeks... Cuddling isn't so bad...

P.S. Mom ordered me a DNA test a few weeks ago to see what breeds I'm "made up of"... Should be interesting to finally know something about my dad!!

 

Goodnight Keisha

Today mom and I went to grandma's house to visit lots of family that had come together for Christmas. I even got to make a new friend - a little puppy named Daisy!

But then we got a phone call late in the evening. Keisha had just passed away. Some family drove us home and mom went outside with everyone else. They had a burial for our dear friend Keisha. She was simply the nicest girl you could ever know. Goodnight Keisha - you'll be missed!
