Fabio loves to chase birds and cats + Plays Tug-O-War with his Bowling Ball on a Rope + Rasseling with his Good Buddy "TUCKER"

Knotted Rope ; Tire-On-A-Rope ; dead rats he catches + Chews tennis balls to shreds.(His favorite "buddy"is "MASON" -> The Dobie next door , sitting on the green grass in the pic below . )

Favorite Walk:
Signal Hill Oil Fields + Catches skunks and feral cats = Pheeew + watches birds flying around.

Best Tricks:
Fabio seems to pre occupied with birds and cats to have any tricks at all --lol-- But his funniest thing is when he wrinkles his nose and shows his teeth in a guity sort of way when I catch him doing something he knows he is not supposed to be doing .

Arrival Story:
I was replacing a deceased Lab "Choc" and looked in a LA County Shelter on Victoria Street.While strolling the kennel cages ; I found my wife talking with a nice looking gentleman and they were standing in front of an available Doberman Pincher. The man looked familiar ; dressed in designer blue genes ; embroidered shirt opened to the mid chest.His hair was golden and shoulder length. On his feet were expensive snake skin boots.As I spoke to him ; he responded in an accent I didn't recognize. I told him some people referred to me as "Mr.Clean" 'cause I resembled that icon. And I asked him if anybody called him "FABIO" 'cause my wife thought he looked like the Model so famous. He smiled and replied "Yes they do -- that's ME !! " Well-You could have knocked me over with the Black and dusty Hummer Vehicle he was driving (with attached motorcycle trailer) We all laughed at our chance meeting ; as he had rescued several dogs from this shelter and was getting one more. Well we did rescue the Dobie- and named him ?? What else?? FABIO !! Of course !! He sent us a Studio Head shot photo signed as well. He is a super nice person and my wife will never forget that day .

This guy has BIG feet and a Big Heart as well. FABIO has developed into a well behaved and responsive member of our family.He follows me everywhere and demands a head rub.If he doesn't get one quickly,he puts his head on me till I respond.

My buddy "Tucker" dosen't like to get wet on his own, but loves to get his flea soap bath , then get a free wipedown from the Master.We love this workout and while "Tucker" is constantly retreving his chewedup ball .

So , Now I , Fabio , have evolved into an extreamly interesting personality ! My co-hort "Tucker" always gets Master to throw his tennis ball over the fence , into the South Forty...where we all (Dexter , Tucker and I ) run back there to retrieve it ...ha..Well Dexter is constantly threatining to steal the ball ..he generally dosen't..but grabs Tucker by the neck while running after it ! Tucker don't care much for that , but he is so consumed by the fetch...he ignores the affront . I just watch Tucker grab and retrieve said article , then return it to Master... and laying it down on the ground , just behind Master's feet , so when Master steps back without checking his footing , Master stumbles over it and yells . Ha! That's when I grab the ball and RUN........ I love to chew the balls we recover from the River after a storm , 'cause they are soaked in SaltWater...Yummm... Then they make a wonderful popping noise as I Chomp down on them . So Tucker will wait right there in front of me , while I Chew ... Then while I carry the object from place to place , Tucker waits till I get distracted by a person or animal , passing outside our tin driveway gate...Then He grabs it and runs bck to Master... We start all over again ... This usually takes about a 20 minute cycle ... But what do I care ..I'm A DOG... Ha ... And , you might ask ? What is Master doing all this waiting time ?? Of course > Picking up all the Used DogFoods I and Tucker and Dexter have Strewn about the propertry..What Else?? Ha?.Wait a second , I hav'ta go get a bite of dry food and a BIG drink of Water ......... I'll Be Bacaaak... .Later
AKA (Also Known As ) > Me ... Fabio
