Best Tricks:
his best trick was taught to him by his aunt Chris as a puppy and we can still sucker some people into falling for it... if you clap your hands and stand like a baseball catcher, he will hit your chest like a train and usually take you off your feet!

Arrival Story:
I chose Garrett to be my companion after losing my previous dog to cancer, his breed was similar in energy level to the beagle/fox terrior I had. I spent a lot of time researching breeders and ended up driving up to see him when he was only 3 weeks old, you know, so I didn't come home with a pup.....his breeders were great and I met his litter and extended family and was in love .... yeah, I ended up making the 14 hour roundtrip 6 weeks later to bring him home!

Bio:
Garrett's name means sheild and protector... he is both my best buddy and protector... if you are a friend of mine, then you are a friend of his, and finally, he is a definate Momma's boy!

the dingo ate your what?

things have really slowed down again.... you should have seen how busy things were before the holidays.... cars up and down the street and pretty lights at night..... this only means...... Santa and new dog toys for good puppies! I raked in quite a few and a ham bone........
it has gotten very cold finally, it seems to do that every winter, so I spend a lot of time in the house now... I used to mind it a lot more when I was a young'un but not so much now.... it does get boring though, all I can really do is play with my toys and torment the cats.........
this past weekend though, we got lots of snow and I got to run around in it while Mom did all the work clearing the driveway... I am much better than when I got sick earlier this year.... I think Mom is the one who makes me slide and fall once in awhile ( she must have magic) it sure was fun though to run through it like a deer and even more fun to knock over the piles she was making for me to play in next to the driveway!
gotta run... time to bother the cats again!

 

oh no.... snow!

Yup..... it snowed finally, it always seems to do that when all the leaves fall off the trees. Mom says that it is too early to snow, but I love it! I get to run around in it and slide my face along the ground.... really cool to do and the smell of things that are now hidden is neat too. It is all gone now but i know that there will be more of it even though Mom says that she could live the whole winter not seeing it again. I made her go around the yard though and find a lot of my toys with me.... so they don't get buried for the whole winter... man that always is a bummer when I can't find a favorite one because ..... someone.... left it outside.

 

Fall is here......

Wow, it is fall so soon. The leaves are falling down again and it is so cool to go running through the piles of them. Mom has even left a small pile of them near my dog run so I can lie in them in the sun and watch the people go by. I still can't believe that summer has gone away.... there are so many cool things to do then and it is light so late that we can go walking and all kinds of stuff........ now, we have to go for a walk as soon as Mom gets home and before it gets real dark. The really cool thing is that I got a new toy to play with..... stuffed dog with a squeeker..... heaven! I will have to make room for it with all the others I have but I really like getting a new one to toss around. By the way... the new kitten Ridley (that's her name) still doesn't want me to kiss her... boy is she missing out!
