Arrival Story:
I was adopted in May 2006 from Jack's Fur Angels, they took me in when I was very young and very sick and my original owners could no longer take care of me. They took very good care of me before letting everyone know I was ready for a new home. My new parents had seen me when I was first rescued in October 2005 - followed my progress for months, and finally decided I had to be the one! They visited me every weekend for a month at the meet and greets! They had never been parents before, but JFAT helped them know everything they needed to know, and made sure I was going to a good home. It's been months now, and I have settled in just fine!

Hi everyone,

We've been busy these past few months. Football games, festivals, and BBQs and loads of car rides lately. I have been having a blast! Otis and I have finally figured out that we don't need mom and dad around anymore because we don't need them to pick on we can pick on eachother! We have so much fun, and although Otis can be a little bossy at times, it's okay cause I just go with the flow. Mom and Dad just keep an eye on us when we get too rough because Otis likes to bite my ears and then I get ear infections and I hate getting my ears cleaned or having to put drops in.

This past weekend we went to my grandparents house in Conroe, TX. I love car rides, but three hours was a little much, I had to huff and puff a little bit. It was Otis' first time there so I got to show him around and we played in the big yard and had lots of fun. We even got to know our cousin, Nelly, a little bit more. She's little though and doesn't really like to play rough but we still think she's pretty cool.

I haven't seen my best friend Ako in a long time. Aunt Sara has been working a lot and they got this little guy, Gus who's staying with them until he finds a forever home. I am happy that Aunt Sara wants to help but if it stands in the way of seeing my best friend...well I just don't know if I can stand it anymore. Hopefully we will see Ako and Morris soon though. We haven't even been able to wish Morris a happy adoption anniversary. My mom was there when Sara and Morris met and also the day he was adopted. Sounds like we need another doggy party soon!

Everyone enjoy the cooler weather, and we will see ya later.

Hey everyone, trying to keep in touch more often. Hope everyone is well. I had my birthday in July and it was AWESOME. If you weren't there, you should definitely try to make it next time. Mom was worried about all the rain, but it was a beautiful day and about 10 of my closest friends showed up. We played for hours! Mom made me apple pupcakes, but Otis really liked them a lot more than me, so I let him have mine. I got some great treats and toys from my friends too, so I want to thank everyone for coming over and celebrating!

I have a slight ear infection right now, not very fun. Otis kind of chews on my ears when we are rough housing so that's probably how I got it. Oh well, mom and dad have been keeping an eye on us more so that hopefully it won't happen again.

Next week we are going to see our friends at Doggy Day out for 5 days of fun in the sun. Mom and Dad are going to CO for a wedding so we get to go on vacation too! Can't wait to see everyone! Hope everyone is having a great summer too!

Peace out,
Duke

 

Hi All, it's been a while

I can't believe it's been so long since my last entry. Been busy.

As most of you know, I have a new brother, Otis. He's pretty cool, I didn't know what to think of him at first though. He was sick like me, and mom kept him from playing which I don't understand how you can feel better without !!playing!! BUT I GUESS mom knows best. Just this past week he started being able to play with me and we've had a lot of fun. He sometimes EVEN tires ME out! I know it's really strange. We sometimes are able to get in the bed with mom and we lay on either side of her and give eachother kisses, then we start getting all crazy and have to get down but it's worth it, cause then we can be all crazy again.

I have been teaching Otis a lot of new tricks too. He watches me a lot even though he's older, mom says that I have to be the big brother since he can't hear. I don't really know what that means, but I have stepped up and tried to help him understand what's going on. Like when mom is home, it's weird, he doesn't go tearing down the halls with me when the garage door opens, so I get really excited and then he sees me and follows me down. THEN he sees mom and he understands. (Hello? how can you not jump on mom when she comes home!??) Whatever - we are working on more stuff everyday.

About three weeks ago we had another pup, Bindi, come stay with us for a few days. I thought mom was going to have a heart attack because we couldn't stay still (and Otis wasn't supposed to get his heart rate up cause his heartworms). Bindi was chasing me, Otis was chasing Bindi, it never stopped, we just couldn't sit for five minutes. Otis wanted Bindi to be his girl friend, but I think she liked younger guys cause she wouldn't leave me alone. I finally had to tell her to back off, but that didn't last very long and I just can't be mean to the ladies. We sure hope that Bindi finds a good home soon, she was a great friend to us and had lots of fun.

This Wednesday is my birthday, pretty stoked about it. Atleast 8-9 of my friends are coming. For some reason she's worried about possible rain, but I mean, we have the whole house to run around in, RIGHT!?? Hello..What's wrong with that? We will just have to see.

See ya!
Duke
