Dining on any edibles left unguarded in the kitchen. Destroying ANYTHING stuffed (toys, pillows, dog beds.......) Particularly enjoys "unstuffing" my stuffed collector bears!!!!!!! Loves posing for pics. Loves being a lap dog ....90#'s of choc love!!!
All cats and tiny aggressive dogs, nail trims, BATHS!!!!! , and anyone getting attention other than HIM!!!!
Shoes, remotes, anything he can get his paws on he considers to be HIS toys. Full sz basketball he bats with his paws, empty plastic pop bottles, paper towel cores. He destroys all his toys, especially stuffed ones.
PB is first choice, ice cubes, garbage, and anything that doesn't eat him first.
Any walk is an adventure for him but nearby state park is fav. Loves to splash in the water as long as it's NOT bath related.
None, HE RULES!!! Extremely smart but used only to his advantage. Draws you away from the counter while cooking by taking something off limits (shoes, remote..) then drops it and circles back to steal the food.
I found the closest Choc Lab breeder 2 hours away. He was just 9 wks. So couldn't bear to think of caging him in a kennel on his trip to his brand new home...what a welcome that would be!!! I made a cuddly little bed on the front seat as I knew he'd be frightened and homesick. Wanted to keep this cowering little pup close so I could comfort him on the drive home. Arrived to find this wild romping creature tearing around the breeders livingroom like a tornado....timid he wasn't. I also didn't realize a 9wk old puppy could be so big. After playing with him and getting aquainted we completed the necessary paperwork and were on our way home. He spent the VERY LONG 2 hour drive trying to climb in my lap, explore, bark at passing cars, chew the car to pieces, and yes, puddle .....but I already adored him!!! :)
I love cuddles and when my mom talks baby talk ...that makes my tail wag real hard. Mom and I went for a car ride shortly after I came to my new home. She stepped outside to get the mail quick and I locked the car door on her. I was really pretty good while she was gone getting the spare keys. I only turned on the turn signal and honked the horn a couple times then I curled up in her seat to wait for her. I don't know why she was so frantic??? It was worth it though, she gave me lots of hugs and kisses when she got the car door open again. I never get to play in the car alone anymore, not even for a second.. but that's OK. I like company better. I love TV, have favorite animal videos and like to bark along...I get soooo excited!!! I like to bring my chewies for mom to hold while I chew them and I still like to be her "lap dog" sometimes. Mom doesn't see it that way anymore, she kinda groans and makes funny noises when I surprise her and leap on her lap. I like to take mom for RUNS!!! She doesn't run too fast (like I do) so I help her by pulling real hard on the leash...boy she can fly then!!! I love to chase stray dogs, cats, birds, squirrels, blowing leaves,paper, any moving (living/ non-living)thing that looks like it would be fun to play with. Mom says No open windows allowed around me. One night I barreled through the window screen after the cutest little girl puppy, I wanted her to be my new friend!!! Sometimes mom doesn't always see things my way, she didn't like hunting for me at 2AM while I was making a new friend. I used to sleep in mom's room at night until I got bored in the middle of the night. I was being sooo nice not to disturb her. I found one of her dumb old stuffed bears to play with (it didn't look special to me) and kinda played it to pieces. Still bored, (and mom still sleeping) I took one of her pillows off the bed and shredded it alllllll over the room. It looked like we had a snowstorm inside ......it was so neat!!!! I don't sleep in mom's room anymore. :( I live with my mom and my little furry buddy Iggy. I was an only puppy for a long time. I wasn't so sure I liked sharing mom and my stuff with this new guy. I even went and sulked in the laundry room alllllll alone but finally after a few days I found he wasn't...... too bad, as long as he stays outta my stuff!!! When I want him to play with me I tease him with my rawhide roll. We either play tug or keep away with it. One day we were playing soooo hard we knocked mom down. She shouldn't have been in the way ...but that's not what SHE said. If Iggy steals my chewies from me I bark and bark and bark... until mom comes and settles things. She says I'm too spoiled and calls me devil dog!! She even got me a stuffed talking devil that says "the devil made me do it" and that's true. I really don't mean to get into so much stuff, though it was kinda fun rippin all the stuffing outta Iggy's bed!!!!! I know mom still loves me. Even when she scolds me and tries to sound all grumpy I can see she's sorta smiling. That's when I give her the great big sad puppy look. That gets me outta trouble real quick, she can't resist that. Who says I don't know any good tricks????

Well Thanksgiving didn't go quite as planned. I didn't get to scarf down the turkey like last year with my lil bud Iggy. Mom did give us bowls of leftover goodies....I was so stuffed!!!!! Later mom said that was the last turkey I'd be eatin.' at least till she talks to the doggy Dr. She just read turkey's (and garlic) not good for dogs. I don't know about that ....tasted pretty good to me!!!!! Anyhow, now I'm lookin for Christmas. Everybody says it's coming but I haven't seen it yet. Mom's busy today bakin us a "surprise." I won't be too surprised cuz I already smell em' and they smell YUMMY!!!!! She's makin' my cheese cookies, hot dog jerky, meaty treats AND my favorite PB Yumms. I can't stand it..... I CAN'T STAND IT.....IT SMELLS SO GOOD!!!!!! (pause for tail waggin and extra big sniff) Maybe she'll get a phone call or somethin' and I can go snitch just "one." Being the big guy around here comes in handy. I'm just tall enough to counter surf when mom's not lookin.' Christmas can't get any better than this!!!!!!! Gotta get back to the kitchen...just heard her open the oven door again. I hope all my friends on Dogster have a really grrrrrrrrrrrreat Christmas too!!!!!!!!

11/2007 Oh Boy, it's almost Thanksgiving. My tail is waggin' so hard. Last year it was just me an Iggy around here. I still miss that little guy. (He went to Rainbow Bridge 12/2/2006). I have lots of great memories of him though. Last year when mom went shoppin' (the day after Thanksgiving) me an Ig got the frig door open and ate alllllllllll the leftover turkey. YUMMMMMY!!!!!!!! The bad thing was we couldn't blame it on anybody else. Me and Ig had our faces stuffed in the turkey pan when mom walked in. OOOOPS! I'm hopin' for repeats again this year..... of turkey that is. I'm pretty thankful too. Mom keeps going to that shelter place every weekend. She says just to help out........ but that's where all these other guys around here came from. She comes home smellin' like a zillion dogs (I KNOW cuz I count em as I sniff) but so far she hasn't brought anybody new home. That makes me thankful cuz that means more turkey for me!!!!!!

10/ 2007 Aren't we runnin out of room yet?? Mom went to that place again (shelter) and brought home this little guy with dots all over his nose. He's kinda funny lookin' but mom says he's soooooo cute. At least he's not a girl. We have one of them and she gets too grouchy at me. I don't do nothin' to her..... honest!!!! Anyway, this new guy Charlie is kinda small but an ok guy. I really don't like sharin' mom this much. I remember bein' an only puppy a loooooooong time ago. I gotta admit though it's fun to always have someone to play with, especially if mom's gone. I got kinda bored and lonely before when I was all alone. Now I can't even find a place to be alone. Life is always changin' around here. Most the time for the best, I guess. At least I get lots a love so I'll keep hangin' around here.
