Today is my Birthday!

   Leave a bone for Flecken (a/k/a Balloon Boy)

Flecky, Fleckerino, Fleckster

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

April 1st 2004

Tormenting the other members of his family, belly rubs, chasing lizards

Favorite Toy:
His "queaka boy" ( a loofa dog given to him by his Canadian pal, Spike); anything that Gretchen is playing with

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere....just take me for a walk!

Arrival Story:
I thought my family was complete at 3, but a co-worker e-mailed me a picture of Flecken, who was available with a rescue group. I have always had a weakness for black and white spotted dogs (before I started collected doxies, I wanted a dalmation, but didn't have room for a large dog). I called the rescue group right away, and Flecken became a member of the family the next day.

When I brought Flecken home, I was anticipating some serious problems with Oscar, since she is so old, and he was so young. But, it turned out that they got along great from the very beginning, and Oscar is VERY tolerant of his high energy shenanigans!

The holiday shopping season is here! If you're looking for a gift to give, that also "gives back," may I suggest a warm and cozy fleece blankie or all-cotton quilt from Flecken's Flea Market? If you purchase an item from the Flea Market between now and January 15, 2010, I will donate 100% of the proceeds to our local animal shelter, the SPCA of Central Florida.

PLUS....only for the pups at Dogster (OK....the cats at Catster too), from now until December 15, 2009, I'm offering FREE SHIPPING within the U.S. and 50% off shipping to international destinations! When you place an order, just put the word "Dogster" in the message area...and your blankie or quilt will be sent anywhere in the United States for FREE! International shipping is 50% off! If you are an international Dogster and want to place an order, p-mail me before you order, and I'll let you know how much the shipping will be.

This is a great way to get a get a wonderful gift for someone you love, and help house, feed and provide medical care to the pups and kitties that make the SPCA of Central Florida their temporary home.

Right now, you're reading my diary.

But WHY?? When you COULD be reading THIS diary:

The Gossip Hound

It's way more funny. And coming from someone who takes a little bit of pride in being somewhat funny, that's a pretty big compliment. But even I know when I've been out-funnied.

Better than any supermarket tabloid, "The Gossip Hound" is a must-read for anyone who needs to know the dirty little secrets behind Hollywood's most happening hipsters. Everyone loves a trainwreck...and let's face it...Hollywood is full of them!

Now you can see Hollyweird from a whole new perpective, because there's no better view than the view from the Bridge. Let "Jermajesty" (formerly known as just plain "Daisy") take you on an E-ticket ride to the best of the best of what you need to know, to be "in the know!"

Ummmm.....change of plans. April Fool's!

After much deliberation, I realize that I can't possibly be a cat. They're way too independent...and well....it's no secret that I am a big mama's boy. Apparently, it was just another case of "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence." So, I'm staying on my own side of the fence, even though the grass seems less green. I've never been much of a grass connessuier anyway. Thanks for all the support though! It really makes a dog who thought he was a cat feel loved.

To those of my pals (and siblings) who were looking forward to my transformation for less-than-honorable reasons.....my sincerest apologies for ruining your dinner plans!
