Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere in the neighborhood

Best Tricks:
Alerting us when we leave the house without completely shutting the front door

Arrival Story:
Someone up the street from us moved out and left him tied to the porch. The neighbors that had been feeding and giving him water, asked us if we would keep him until a good home was found for him. Somehow... he got loose, so the neighbors could call animal control to take him to SPCA where we visted until he cold be adopted. 5 neighbors in the immediate area contributed the $95 adoption fee plus gave us food and treats while a "good home" could be found. That was over 5 years ago. We should have known when 5 people were willing to part with cash to save him that he had to be a charmer. He's also a joy.

Bio:
The people that abandoned him said he was half black lab and half red Chow. He's got the lab personality but the Chow appearance and watchfulness. We lost Ernie Dec 12 2008 to Canine oral malignant melanoma. In his honor, check for tumors on your dog's tongue, jaw and any other dark skin. It is a very aggressive cancer, but there is new vaccine that can significantly improve the chance of survival. Ernie's tumor was on his tongue and too large to be removed when we found it.

We lost Ernie Dec 12 2008 to Canine oral malignant melanoma. He will live on in our heart's forever as a joy to all.

I'm being spoiled

I got back from the vet last week and mom and dad have been spoiling me ever since. Long walks and special treats....Mom even gave me some of her chocolate cookies last night.

The vet called yesterday and said I had Canine Oral Melanoma. I guess that means I get good stuff to eat and do more fun stuff.

All cause I was drooling so much and there's this big lump on the back of my tongue. It does stop me enjoying treats and chasing squirrels.

 

I have a blog

My mom started something called a "blog" for me. She uses it to let me describe my life. Because I don't talk English (except on dogster), she translates for me and illustrates with pictures she takes on a little silver box. She's not very good at making pictures though. You'll have to overlook the fuzziness and cut off tops and bottoms. She means well and is getting better.
