Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

August 29th 2004

Sleeping, listening to the big dog across the street (Mom & Dad call him my boyfriend), chasing flies, going crazy at night time and running laps all over the place. Cookies are good, too.

Niko. He drives me crazy... never leaves me alone!

Favorite Toy:
I'll chase the ball sometimes, but I like chasing bugs and stuff more.

Favorite Food:
I like the iams bacon sauce on ANYTHING.

Favorite Walk:
Mom & Dad are still trying to get me used to the leash... I HATE IT! I turn into a crazy monkey as soon as I see it.

Best Tricks:
I listen to my own drummer. I can sit... for a price.

Arrival Story:
Mom & Dad were looking for another Shiba to play with Niko and wanted to get a red one like me. They searched all over for breeders but couldn't find any less than six hours away, so they went to the pet store. They were so sad when they saw me. The mean pet store people had me crammed in a small cage with two other dogs. I couldn't even stand! When I tried to walk my legs would shake from lack of exercise... I had kennel cough, a skin problem, very underweight, severe ear infections in both ears, and then, to top it off, my big girl teeth came in waaaay too early and were covered in tartar. When Mom & Dad took me to the vet he was really mad!! He did all my treatments for free and gave me free medication, too. After about a month I started feeling and looking a lot better! I also started to be less timid, but new people still scare me a lot!

Mom & Dad call me Monkey-Girl sometimes because I'm such a good climber. They used to have a baby gate that would keep me and Niko downstairs, but I learned how to climb it! When I'm really excited I can also jump pretty high... one time I got in a nip at Mom's shoulder!

I got in a little bit of trouble earlier today. Mom was downstairs cleaning and I was really bored up here, so decided to hang out by the bedroom door. Sometimes Evie or Lilly will tease me from the other side, and it's always good for a laugh! But not today. I got toooo bored and started gnawing on the wall... I was about an inch or so in when Mom came back upstairs... oh boy, she was NOT happy!

But otherwise today has been pretty low-key. Mom's been working on her novel and I've just been lounging by her feet. Pretty normal day, though once the sun goes down I can let loose! Dad should be home from work soon... he's always fun to tussle with! Mom's OK but Dad's the best!
