Quick Bio:

July 1st 2001

being at home with mom, walks, rides in the car, visiting the lake, chasing rats, getting brushed, sitting in laps getting tummy rubs, giving lots of KISSES to everybody she meets, jumping, going to PetSmart, going deer hunting with her dad

baths, nail clippings, being yelled at, not going out front, being left home with rusty and pepper

Favorite Toy:
sticks and tennis balls #1!!, squeaky feet, rawhides, anything throwable she can fetch, tied up strips of old t-shirts

Favorite Food:
meat! meat! more meat please!

Favorite Walk:
anywhere i take her, as long as she's off her leash.

Best Tricks:
a rousing game of fetch, catch, go get it, get the baby (after pepper), get the cat (when we had one), sit up, shake

Arrival Story:
she was my birthday present in 2001. she was a complete surprise, and i just picked her up and said "well, hi tigger!" first thing. she rode everywhere with me her first few months, and we've gotten to be really good friends. at 10 weeks she sat with me in the living room watching the 9/11 disaster. she has grown up to be the best tigger ever.

she's the mother of 7, a great protector, a most wonderful friend. she's finicky with food, a meat and more meat diet would be perfect in her eyes (and stomach). she's moved twice, both times with no problems. she loves cats (she was raised with one), she likes some other dogs, she can have a quick, mean temper when she's being bothered. she's helpful with me when i'm sick, sticking by me and offering what assistance she can. she's helped me stand up when i've gotten dizzy, she's curled up with me when i've been sick and comforted me. she's a wonderful nurse!

Forums Motto:
she's tiggerrrrrrrrrrrrific!

my mom was MAD friday morning. she knew for a couple of weeks that my dad was going hunting. turkey season and all. but he failed to mention that he was taking me. i love to go hunting with him, but it's better when my mom knows about it and can "prepare" to be tigger-free for a day or so. so when she woke up friday morning and saw my dad filling up a bag with food for me, she got all depressed and sad. "oh, you didn't tell me you were taking tigger!" "yes i did..." "no, i would have remembered and paid a little more attention to her last night to get my tigger time in. now she'll be gone the weekend and i've got today off and oh POO!" and she stomped off into her room. dad didn't say anything, he just kept putting stuff in a bag for me. mom put her clothes on, then got her shoes and took us all for a walk before i left with dad. mom told me that she wouldn't take just rusty and pepper to the dog park without me. so her plans for a full day of dog time were smashed. but i did get to go hunting with my dad and a couple of his friends. we go find a camp area and he cooks meat and i get to play sticks and sometimes if they're out i get to chase the cows. i was with him last year when he shot a deer. that deer is now sticking it's head through the wall over the fireplace. i stop and stare at it every now and then. when we were hunting this time, it snowed! it snowed in town, too, but we got a lot of it out in the country. i love playing in the snow and catching snowballs thrown at me. i had a wonderful time with my dad, even though he made my mom angry. she was sooooooooooo happy to see me on saturday when i came home. so were rusty and pepper. they ran around me and sniffed me and sniffed my dad. i ran in and hugged my mom right off. i missed her too! then i got a big drink and laid down next to mom in the computer room. after i ate my dinner i got really tired and fell asleep on the couch. mom says i snore when i lay on my back. then later i moved into her room with her and rusty and pepper, where i curled up on the bed with mom and pepper. rusty likes to lay on his big couch pillow or on the floor behind the door, i think he was on his pillow. i don't remember, i was toooooo sleepy.
sunday was easter and my mom went to my grandma's house. sometimes i'm allowed to go with her, but because all the nieces and another dog were going to be there, i stayed home because it stresses my grandma too much. then my dad went to my other grandma's. she has 4 dogs. i'm not sure i really like all the dogs. and they're always fighting over me doing tricks, it makes me anxious sometimes. i like to go anyway, i just don't like to stay so long. but, we stayed home sunday while mom and dad went to their families for easter. my mom brought us home ham bites from lunch! we love it when she brings home bites for us. dad didn't bring home anything. he got home late and passed out in his chair. mom ran us all out back once more then we all came in and kept her warm so she could sleep and get up for work today.
mom likes her job so far. she is able to buy good food for us and chewy treats and sometimes even brings us fuzzy toys to shred. soon she'll get us a house with a yard so she won't be stressed and anxious anymore.

last night my mom tried to get me to drink champagne. i drank a little bit, but the bubbles made me sneeze and i bonked my nose on the floor once, and that made me sneeze again! she laughed at me, but i was ok. my dad lit a few bottle rockets in the backyard and i tried to chase them. they went over the fence, though, further than i could go. then he threw some firecrackers out in the yard. i chased after them, but when they started popping i barked at them and ran around them in circles. they scared pepper, and she ran inside. rusty got excited and chased me for awhile, and then we saw that the noise scared some rats in the trees, so we all got crazy and barked and ran in circles about the rats in the trees. then pepper came out and joined in.
this morning my mom wished rusty a happy birthday. he's 4 now. i'll be 6 in july, and pepper will be 3 this month! we're all lucky to live here. mom really really loves us more than anything in the world. she takes such good care of us. i love my mom! i love my dad, too! he takes me hunting, and plays stick with me, and throws toys and balls for me, and lets me go swimming in the cow's water, and takes me on rides in his truck sometimes. i have a great family!!

i'm so excited! my dad took me hunting with him!! sometimes he takes me camping, but this time i got to smell the deer he shot! you can see it in the newest photo of me. i love to go with him. the land is fun to run on, and dad plays "stick" with me all night, throwing my stick further into the cow's field each time. i always find it though, and bring it back for him to throw again.
he came and got me when he brought back his deer. i sniffed at it, but i didn't try to lick it or bite it or drag it away.
i love to ride in dad's truck with him. he lets me sit in the front seat and i get to sniff out the window all the way. we pass cows and horses, and big loud trucks sometimes pass us. when we get to the land, the first thing i like to do is run past the fence and swim in the cows' drinking water! dad lets me becauase he knows i won't bother the cows. plus, i love to swim! he better not stop me!
