Quick Bio:

March 13th 1998

Cowboy loves to chase the squirrels off of our backyard fence. He also loves to play with his squeeky toys, take long walks, sleep, and snuggle with his mommy.

He does not like it when his people argue. He also does not like it when his people steal his blankets from him.

Favorite Toy:
His squirrel squeeky toy, or his disk squeeky toy.

Favorite Food:
Aunty Mary's chicken and rice.

Favorite Walk:
He loves to walk around "his" town.

Best Tricks:
Begging and guessing which hand his treat is in.

Arrival Story:
We started to look for another dog, preferably a Carrn Terrier. We had been looking high and lo for this kind of dog when we came upon a lonely puppy, snuggled up in the corner of his pen. He was trapped in Andy's Pet Shop in San Jose, CA. All of his brothers and sisters had been taken into loving homes, but nobody wanted this desolate little pup. He had an umbilical hernia in his belly, which many people thought was ugly. Poor thing... It could hardly be seen. Before we made an decissions, we left the store in search of puppies. Alas, we had no success in finding a dog. We went back to Andy's shop, and the puppy's price had a nice, red slash through it. He was on sale! He tugged on our heartstrings so much, we just had to have him.... And we did. He is now eight years old, and is such a wonderful companion. :)

Weight: 16.5 pounds
Mood: Depressed

80 Kibbles/5 minutes, 5 laps of water, one stolen cookie

7:30 AM: Damn stomach, always giving me trouble (upchucked all of last night's chicken and beef dinner). Nice way to ruin a Saturday.

8:49 AM: Great. The Hershey's Squirts. My weekend is starting off soooo great.

10 AM: My masters snuggled with me on the couch. Watched the cute poodle in the backyard.

12 PM: Masters left to buy food (for me, presumably). Woof! I get the house to myself now.

1:30 PM: Young Master Boy came home. He smells like other boys.

4:20 PM: Momma's home! Food!
