   Leave a bone for Mr. T-Rex

Rex, Rexy, Sexy Rexy, "Oh Rexy, You're So Sexy"

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

July 6th 1995

His human family. FRISBEES & the Greta Scrambler!! He loves "flying" through the air while hanging onto a stick and having someone twirl him round and round in the air (silly dog must LIKE getting dizzy!). His pet cat, Pippin.

Any male dog, anywhere.

Favorite Toy:
Frisbees, The Greta Scrambler (aka The Egg) stuffed animal sucky toys.

Favorite Food:
McDix hamburgers and ICE CREAM!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere a good stick and a game of tug can be found.

Best Tricks:
Rex can read the word "cat" in 3 languages. He understands the spoken word in the same 3 languages. He'll go fetch any cat he can find when he sees or hears that oh-so-important word! Not that the cats are very happy about it....

Arrival Story:
Rex is my son's dog. In 1995, a cattle rancher in eastern Oregon was selling his 8 week-old purebred working stock Border Collie pups in a Mall Wart parking lot for $10. My son was 14 back then, and despite my reluctance, he begged and nagged 'til he got his way, and so we came home with the dominant male pup of the litter.

Rexy missed his calling--with his strong eye and focused (some might say obsessive) personality, he probably should have stayed on the farm and kept those nasty cattle in line. He doesn't miss it, though. Instead, he obsesses on cats, "The Egg", water hoses, laser pointers (point it at the fridge and he'll lick it! YUK!) and his sucky toy. We don't mind, though. Rex is the best, smartest, most wonderful dog on the face of the planet, and we adore him. He is my son's best friend. He is the reason we fell in love with the breed .

For all of those fans of our beloved Rex, we feel the need to let you know that he crossed over and is waiting for us at the Bridge this summer (August, 2012), at the ripe old age of 17. We miss him dearly. Dogs aren't given nearly enough years with us. If he'd lived to be 100, I'd still be missing him....

Good Dog, Rex. We love you!


Proclamation #7 Public Holiday Announced!

The King is having a birthday. Today, that is! As the King is now 11 years young, he wishes to proclaim the day of his birth as being a new public holiday, starting immediately.

In lieu of gifts to him, you may send bones and rosettes to his beautiful wife, Mrs. Matches :-). He'll be enjoying Double Cheeseburgers and ice cream at the Royal Residence, and wishing his Queen was here to celebrate with him in person.



Proclamation # 6: Hail Miss Matches, Long Live the Queen!

Because Love is in the air! Because the lovely Miss Matches accepted my proposal. Because she's simply perfect. I am honored.

Miss Matches and I said our virtual "I do!"s on Sunday, September 18, 2005, at 8:30 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. I proclaim her the Queen of My Heart, and wish for her all good things, including much fun and winning jumps at the Dock Dog competition she's attending this coming weekend :-).

Hail, Miss (Mrs.?) Matches, Long Live the Queen of My Heart!
