   Leave a bone for Simba

Love Bug, Handsome Boy, Goofball

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

July 23rd 1998

barking at big trucks or cats, staying right by mom's side, sleeping belly up, wrestling with my sisters, chasing water from the hose

don't touch my tail or butt, thunder, lightening, & firecrackers

Favorite Toy:
I like to EAT stuffed animals (material et al) and catch balls, but I never give them back like a retriever should

Favorite Food:
ANYTHING within reach

Favorite Walk:
to the CAR

Best Tricks:
helping mom off the floor when she is half asleep and falls down

Arrival Story:
My first mom is a police officer. She did not have enough time to give me the attention I needed. Her cousin adopted/rescued me when I was about 5 years old. Mom gives us LOTSA TLC and I have 3 sisters to play with. Being the only male in the family, I protect my harem with great pride.

September 2004 I had CANCER and a tumor was removed from my chest. I am definitely a "rescued" dog, because my first mom would not have even noticed the lump or had it checked out. I also have a hypothyroid, but of course I get yummy meds for that. I love going to our vet's because they give great massages always checking for new lumps like mom does all the time. My dear pal Little Bit calls it "petting with a purpose."

da Gang has ALL been tagged so back away!

Here are the Rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. I did not meet mom until I was almost 5 years old
2. joining a Gang saved my life

Kansas, Iowa, Ohio 6-pack Pupdate

The 6-pack’s rescue story can be seen in our Gang’s Diary.

Feb 15 PUPDATE: all of the 6-Pack have been officially ADOPTED!

LENA and LEXI (now Loki) still need homes in Des Moines, Iowa.
Lena almost had a furever home but was too shy for the people who liked her. She is a sweetheart and loves to cuddle. Needs a family with patience that can give her a little extra training.
Lexi was ready to go to California and live with our dear pal Griffen’s mom. Behaviorists and trainers suggested that flying would not be a good idea, so she still needs a home closer to Des Moines.
(Pupdate: Lena and Lexi’s (now Loki) foster family failed! they are staying together with fellow Dogsters Takoda, Vegas, and Catori in Iowa. Life is wonderful!)

Meanwhile, back in Ohio:
LUNA and LEA were the first to be adopted. They are together with their new dad, getting big, and doing great.
Dogsters Mellow and Caelen are foster flunkies. Ha ha! LANA (now Lainie) is part of their happy pack now.
LETA , one of the shyest pups of all, is thriving with her new foster mom. FM is close to foster failing as well. If FM does not keep Leta, our pals Vincent & Rosie have a very dear friend that really wants to give her an awesome life.
(Pupdate: her FM DID fail and she has a new Dogster page at LETTA).
