He likes to have someone rubbing him and telling him that he is the cutest dog ever.
He hates it when he goes to run up the stairs into the house from the backyard and bounces off of the screen!!! Too bad they don't have glasses for dogs!!!
He likes to be the toy. He just waits for an invitation to be tickled.
Ice cream is the definite favourite.Steak is a close runner-up
He isn't picky. He just likes to walk. He is very careful to place himself on the left side at all times. Good leash manners.
Clover can sit on command but it is always accompanied by a big sigh. He just does it to humour us.
Clover is a foster dog from the Toronto Humane Society. We took him because , try as they might, the workers at the shelter couldn't coax him to eat .He isn't really a brave little guy and needed peace and quiet to digest his meals. He eats everything in sight since he moved into a home situation. He has a skin condition that makes his skin crusty and flaky and there are some bald patches as well.He also suffered from killer halitosis until a great many rotten teeth were removed. Unfortuately, the ones he has left are sparkling clean but go in several different directions. Clover doesn't care..He can eat just fine with them. Still, medications, frequent baths and lots of love have helped a lot. Clover looks quite adorable and gets lots of attention when he goes out with us. People who meet him realize that beauty is more than skin deep and in this aspect Clover is a Beauty Pagaent Winner!! He is always happy and bouncy and just wants to love and be loved. We are still working on getting a handle on his skin problem, which will involve figuring out the cause of it, but Clover is a welcome member and an asset to our family in the meantime.
Clover is a sweet little guy who weighs about 10 lbs but he is a bit on the chubby side. He is very active and happy. He loves to play with his humans. He gets along beautifully with other dogs and cats and is quiet and a bit shy. He like to stake out his turf and have routines. He makes these routines on his own. The first evening in our home, he decided to sleep on our couch in the family room. Now he puts himself to bed regularly at 10:30 and looks down his nose at us if we don't turn off the telly and leave him in peace when he is ready to turn in.
There's always enough love for everyone

Last time I wrote in my diary my skin condition was getting so bad that my mom thought that they might have to set me free. Still, they kept bathing me and taking me to a specialist and one day my coat came back again. I look pretty good right now although it does take Mom a bit of work to keep me comfortable and healthy. I am getting old now and my sight is going and my back legs aren't what they used to be. My trachea is also collapsing so I cough a bit. Mom and Dad help me overcome these little problems and we are doing well together. They are getting older too so they know that those little flaws are just part of the package.

My last diary entry was a long time ago. I was wondering what was to become of me. My mom took me in to foster me and care for me until my skin condition cleared up and I could find a home of my own. Everyone thought that would only take a few weeks or a month. Hah!!!Well, my skin did keep getting better and better and finally in September 2006 my mom thought that we had the conditon beat and took me to get studio photos with my beautiful coat. Well that was a bad idea!!!! Jinxed me. Since then my hair has been falling out and my skin is now worse that it has ever been. Mom is worried and takes me to a specialsit to try to keep me comfortable and to stabilize the spread. I really only have fur on my legs and head now. My mom and dad love me and I am still a happy boy.They tell me that I will live with them for the rest of my life.

I am mixed up. My first Mommy tried really hard to help me with my bad skin condition but she ran out of money and took me to a Humane Society so that they could help me. They were really nice there but there were so many other dogs and cats around me that I was too scared to eat. Then my new Mommy came to get me and take me home. I settled in so fast and met my new brothers and sisters and caught up on my food intake pretty fast!!! I like my new home and my new family very much. Still, my new siblings tell me that this is called a "foster" home. Many dogs have come into this house and then have moved on into new forever homes. That is all well and good, but I really like this house!!! I know where to get food and water. I have picked out sleeping spots, both for the daytime and for night-time. I really love my hoomans and get worried when Mommy and I get separated when we are out, even if someone else nice is holding me. I heard Mommy telling Daddy that the Humane Society is trying to find out why my skin is so bad and one of the reasons may be pretty scarey. They don't know yet. She and Daddy agreed that if I have the "bad sickness" that I will stay with them forever. I don't want to be sick but I don't want to leave here either. I will let you know later what happens. Until then, I will just put my worries out of my head and enjoy life right now. I am so cuddly and happy that it is hard for me to be worried for too long!!!
