   Leave a bone for Katee

Pupzilla, The Great White One

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

I love to go places with mom and dad. Walking, hiking, running, scootering, car trips, whatever. I like to travel!

I hate getting poked by my brother while napping, especially on long car trips.

Favorite Toy:
My cat, Prem. Or maybe I'm his dog....we're really not sure.

Favorite Food:
Mmmm....scrambled egg...don't get it often, though :)

Favorite Walk:
I like to go to any state park, but preferably in cool weather!

Best Tricks:
I like to howl along to the theme song of Law and Order on TNT. There's just something about it I love....

Arrival Story:
We were at our local Petsmart when we saw her....bouncing and lunging towards any passerby, trying to get attention. She was one of two large dogs with the rescue group there that day. We had been planning on getting a dog, now that we had a big backyard for run/play time...and the nice rescue lady said, "You could take her home!" (I was surprised, and later found out that they took likely dogs from the local kill shelter and had only as long as the animal had there to get them adopted - they had no shelter or foster homes of their own, and Katee had only two days left...) After going home, checking our finances, and having a long discussion with my husband, we called them at Petsmart to say we were coming back. They waited for us fifteen minutes past their usual leaving time. We've never looked back!

Sweet girl, loves children (but we don't have any), and is ammenable to nearly anything (backpacks, booties, long car trips, hiking, running, playing...:)

Forums Motto:
Can we go now?

The Groups I'm In:
Backpackin' Pups United, Pullin' Pups

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Got my Roadie! But I have a question..

Favorite Activity:
Now I really love to go running with mom. She doesn't try to make me go really fast, like Max wants to.

Favorite Cat:
Prem...he likes to come up and flop down on me when I'm resting. At first it was kinda weird, but I've since discovered he makes a good soft pillow.

Favorite Time of Day:
I really like early morning, before dawn. When mom gets up that early, I know something interesting is going to happen that day!

Favorite Sleeping Place:
Tough choice between mom and dad's bed and the stair landing where I can look out over the rest of the house.

Neat Trick:
I jump up on the back door and look inside to see if anyone is coming when I want to go in.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
August 21st 2005 More than 11 years!

So not fair! Mom and dad took away my bunny snack. And I'd caught it fair and square. Hmph.


Still running along!

Mom and I are still running, although we took a week off while she and dad went somewhere without us. (And they came back smelling of far-away places - No Fair!!!) Two of our favorite people came by to watch after us, though, so it was ok. We weren't even clingy when they got back. Heh. The cats mobbed them, though.

The really cool thing is that dad went running with us, too! We started the running thing over again, with just a little running and mostly walking. Unfortunately mom and dad both hurt their legs the next day so we didn't run again that week.

But now mom is better and we went running today. Mom says that hopefully dad will be better in a couple more days, too, and will run with us again.

Unfortunately, the weather is warming up and I am still rather....fluffy.....I already went to the groomer and they got all the loose fur off me....but now I'm shedding again and have a lot more loose fur! And I'm getting _hot_ when we run! Mom says she's going to brush me more and maybe that will make me cooler.


Running again -

And this time, mom is running with me! We've been going out every other day or so and first we walk, then we run for a little (not fast, though) and then we walk again. It's really fun! And since it's just mom, I don't have any problems keeping up. Mom thinks she's really slow, but I try to tell her that it's ok, because it gives me more time to sniff around as we go. Besides, she only has two legs, so she's not as good at running as I am.

We started out running for just a little bit at a time, with a little bit of walking in between the running. Now we're running a little bit more and walking a little bit less.
