Quick Bio:

June 1st 2002

killing stuffed animals, mango shampoo, sleeping on Mom and Dad's bed, the weekends because mom and dad are both home, laying on the couch, jumping on the bed, working with dad in the garage, when mom sings the "crazy" song

slipping on the hardwood floors, the Goodyear blimp, cats, dancing, throwing up (I have a sensitive belly), getting my nails trimmed and my ears cleaned, the vacuum cleaner, weekdays, being petted when I am "working" (begging for food)

Favorite Toy:
whatever Gitta has, anything squeaky, Kong Wubba, and my "ropey" (it's all about the ropey)

Favorite Food:
vanilla ice cream, cheese, yogurt, ice cubes, eggs, raw bones, pasta

Favorite Walk:
walking through the neighborhood with my dad, going to Edmonds Dog Beach to sniff rear ends

Best Tricks:
moofing at the word "kitty," moofing for treats, finding my toys by name, and chasing my tail on command

Arrival Story:
My parents found my litter mates and I for sale in the classified ads.  I was one of two boys and six girls.  My parents got the pick of the litter!  They picked me when I was 3 weeks old.  I was the only puppy who lifted my head when my mom made a squeaky sound.  I had to wait 3 more long weeks until I could come home with human parents.  I traveled from the breeder in Cashmere, Washington all the way to Mukilteo, Washington to be with them.  They named me "Gustav" after Gustav's Restaurant in Leavenworth, Washington (which is on the way to Cashmere).

I love all people and dogs!  I love being with my family most of all.  I like to be active with dad and lazy with mom.  I do not like it when people ask my parents if they shave me.  I am a smooth-coated Saint Bernard (the original)!  I enjoy killing stuffed animals, barking at mysterious cats and squirrels, car rides, smelling all the smells, giving kisses, playing hide-and-go-seek, playing with my toys (it's all about the ropey), "running the course" around the backyard, meeting new people, and meeting other dogs.  I also enjoy playing rescue (if you hide under a blanket, I will rescue you).  I am a true gentle giant, but sometimes I hurt people with my crazy tail!

I've been Valentine tagged by Ripley!

I am going to tell you my 5 Valentine wishes, and then tag 5 friends with a p-mail or rosette. They will then write a diary entry and tag 5 friends with a p-mail or rosette, and so on and so on.

1. I wish I could sleep on the couch all day instead of spend the daytime in my kennel (although it is nice there, too).

2. I wish I could have a fresh bone everyday instead of every week.

3. I wish my sister would stop cleaning my ears (OK--I DON'T wish this. I really like it...).

4. I wish I had thumbs so I could be a REAL person.

5. I wish I could go to work with my mom.

I'm tagging:

Big Pappi

I got Tagged by Bubbles AND Ripley!

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 am a slim 130 pounds.
2. I let my sister clean my ears.
3. I love to have my knee-bows rubbed.
4. I hate the kitties...just the mention of the word sends me into a tizzy!
5. I love to eat pasta! Maybe I am a Swiss-Italian St. Bernard...
6. I love to lounge on the deck in nice weather.
7. I like to keep Mommy's spot warm on the couch, and in the bed, and on her pillow, and...

My seven tags:
1. Gitta (my sister)
2. Butch (my Cougar friend)
3. Lucy
4. Big Pappi (my sister's boyfriend)
5. Chilly
6. Emma (my cousin)

Well, my sister has done it again. While Daddy was putting his socks on in the mornings, she looked at hims, and squatted, and peed right on my bed. I can't believes it! Mommy and Daddy found me a twin mattress to sleeps on, and I absolutely loves it!!! They got it for $55, which is so much cheapers than a dog bed for a pup of my size (besides, I have been known to eats expensive dog beds). Mommy says that they have to finds me a new one now because we can't haves a pee-pee bed in the house. My sister--she's a lot of troubles, but she sure is fun to plays with. I will gives her a quick rag-doll today while we're playing just to shows her how mad I am, but then I'll gives her a good lick on the nose so she knows that I still loves her. I can't wait to gets my new bed--the floor is too hard for a spoiled boy likes me.

Tail Thumps,
