eating, running, being petted
baths and being disturbed when eating
meat and bones!
out in the streets (suburbs)
My mum was lonely, living alone at her place last year. We visited a friend and saw that her dogs had a litter. She was saving the best-looking one for no-one in particular, and my mum decided to adopt one then and there. We brought Pogo home that night (he was almost exactly two months old. We couldn't decide on a name. My older sister thought of Pogo and I wasn't there to vote against it (anyhow, the name has grown on us).
When we first got him, I thought he looked like a fox, or a hairy Basenji. (I wanted to name him Fox but my sister didn't like it...)
Now he looks like a taller and more slender version of a Japanese Spitz, except that his hair is orange-y and whitish around the ends and on some parts. Funny how he turned out because his parents and siblings are all short-haired. His mother was the only one light-coloured.
He has very sharp teeth but he never bites me, even when he struggles to get out of the harness (it's broken now, by the way). Or when I carry him back inside when he doesn't want to come in yet.
He's intelligent too, because he learned to use the newspapers on the floor without us telling him to. I think he was three months then. We use the papers to soak up his pee. Then my mum goes away for a while day and when she comes back, she sees Pogo didn't do anything outside the newspapers. It was wonderful ^_^
She never taught him any tricks, though... =(
Update: Pogo is 1/4 Japanese Spitz. I thought he was a mutt cos his parents and sibs look lke mutts, all short-haired. Pogo looked adopted haha...

Yesterday mummy gave me a bath using the slobber monster's deodorising shampoo. I almost got choked! I wanted to get down from the sink and run instead of stand still, so mum tied a leash on the faucet. She was pouring shampoo in her hand when I took the chance and jumped! And nearly died a slow death... Well, okay, not nearly. I only hung there for a second, because mummy was right in front of me. [I was so scared! And just a bit mad ^_^ ~ mum]
After drying off she let me run around the yard, and mummy's grandfather detained me and petted me for a bit. Mummy was secretly afraid that I would bite, but actually, I was still not sure that I would bite. I did like being petted, after all.
So today my new 'daddy' let me out and petted me for a very long time. I sat beside him, stood beside him or put my front paws on his lap. I just love being petted. He even combed my fur. Then mummy got her camera and took new pictures of me. [All are new except three: the one with my sister's arm, the one with his tongue out, and the one with the hand on his chin.] Don't I look good? ^_^ So mummy was pretty sure I wouldn't bite my new daddy.
After all, I went and sat beside him when he called me as I was running and running, didn't I? (And I also love running!)
Maybe on Monday I'll get another bath. Mummy will be busy this weekend.

I don't remember exactly when my birthday was, because I was feeling sad. My mummy was out of town for a performance (she says it's called singing; that's what they did when a lot of people came here and howled and made noise the whole day...).
Mummy arrived early this morning. We were so happy, but it was still early and so we had to keep quiet. Mummy was very glad that none of us made noise because the others were still asleep.
Then she had to go inside because she was really sleepy. I haven't been able to play with her. Maybe she'll give us a bath tomorrow...
Thanks to dogster for my birthday gifts! I've never had so many bones! ^_^
I wonder what mum will give me tomorrow...

Yesterday mummy arrived with five men (~my dad and uncle and three movers)and a big truck. They had come to get all the stuff from grandmummy's apartment, including me!
So after they got the truck all loaded up with the stuff, they carried me, inside my cage! I was pretty scared. Then they covered everything with tarp, so I couldn't really see anything but the guys and the inside of the truck. We travelled for more than an hour. When we stopped, they removed the tarp. I was the first to get off, and they carried me, still inside my cage. I was pretty scared because I was as high as their heads. (So now I know I'm afraid of heights...)
I was very hungry and thirsty so afterwards mummy gave me water, and fed me after the movers had gone. I saw a giant dog, and he kept barking at me, so I barked back! Mummy talked with me and stayed with me, but after a while she had to see to the giant, who had pooed. Not five minutes later two guys came and took the giant out... I wonder what they did? It's already dark!
I was scared my first night. I thought mummy left me again and I wouldn't see her for a long while, and there was this strange giant dog...
So I was really happy when mummy came out earlier today. She gave me a bath and let me get acquainted with Bill, who looked like me except for his colour.
I'm not so scared now, because I know mummy is near, and wouldn't disappear for weeks when she gets swallowed by the big wooden thing that bangs.
She is planning to fatten me up (~he's gotten so thin! *cries*) so that I'll be healthier by the time my other mummy comes to get me to live with her ^_^
