not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

November 26th 2002

Going to the dog park, squeaky toys, any dog treat

Dogs biting his legs, rain, seeing dogs on TV that he can't play with, vaccuum

Favorite Toy:
anything that squeaks

Favorite Food:
Barbequed Chicken, Tortilla Chips

Favorite Walk:
to the dog park

Best Tricks:
Begging, being able to tackle any dog at the dog park, counter surfing for any food, silverware or boxes

Arrival Story:
I went to the Humane Society just to look, and there he was-- with floppy ears. He didn't bark, sat on my feet and was very sweet. Within a month he learned how to bark, enjoyed nipping at people's hands and feet, and his ears stood straight up. He is the best dog ever!

Hemingway is very recognizable around Tucson. His ears are his claim to fame, as he just won the Biggest Ears Competition at the Nuts for Mutts Dog Show in California. Hemingway will be featured on Animal Planet on October 18, 2004 at 8PM and again at 11PM, (and again on October 23 at 8PM and 11PM and October 24 at 1PM)but he hasn't let his fame go to his head. He still plans on maintaining a normal life in Arizona with his owner, and asks that the "pup"arazzi please leave him alone when he is trying to meet new girl doggies. Hemingway also enjoys running around the softball field with the Amphitheater Girls Softball team, and hopes his base-stealing skills earn him a scholarship for doggie college. Hemingway is very serious about his academic pursuits and plans on attending doggie obedience college, even though sports experts have him very high in the upcoming draft. And all of those rumors about steroids for his ears are NOT true. Hemingway is willing to submit to a steroid test and urges Major League Baseball Players to do the same. ********** Hemingway is enjoying his 3rd year in the animal kingdom. He is still waiting to meet that "special doggie," which would be a lot easier if he didn't ignore the girl doggies that want to play with him at the dog park. Hemi cannot wait to have his own yard, which he has been told will happen in about 9.5 months! He also loves his new "dad," who likes to wrestle and play fetch with him.

My Tail of Devotion for Hemingway T. Dog

Ode to the HemDogg

Hemingway Dog
You sleep like a log
Except when you hear a javelina
Then you jump to the spot
And bark an awful lot
And whimper whimper whimper

Hemingway Dog
You have a bump on your nog
But it hasn't made you any smarter
You love your treats
And all types of raw meat
But could not find it if it wasn't handed to you

Hemingway Dog
You led me out of a fog
When Gatsby went to the Rainbow Bridge
You are such a sweetheart
Even though you have stinky farts
And I can't imagine my life without ya

This is a special Tail of Devotion

Yesterday, I decided to go into my mom's bedroom while she was at church (she left the door slightly open in her haste to get to church on time). I found a bag that her fiance left that had these wonderful concotions called TRUFFLES. They were balls of milk-chocolatey goodness, and I ate every one, including their wrappers! When mom came home, she found the bag, and immediately called the vet. The vet told her to watch over me, and if I started acting weird, to bring me in.
Well, I knew I was fine, but mom was stressing out a little bit. I mean, I did eat weed kilelr last year and survived that without any side effects, so what was the deal with a little chocolate?

NOTE*** Please keep chocolate away from dogs this holiday season. While Hemingway survived his episode, it was mainly because he ingested milk chocolate, not a very large amount, and he is a very large dog. It only takes about 2 candy bars to cause a 10 pound dog to die. Make sure bags are put up high, and doors are closed. This message brought to you by: Rona, the now even more vigilant dog owner.


My dog bed....

I love my dog bed. I love it, love it, love it. I circle it 3 times before I lie down on it. And it is positioned perfectly-- next to the patio door, so I can watch for people walking by mom's apartment and bark at them. I have to guard the homestead when Mom is away...and even when she's home! Of course, if someone decided to break in, I would just lick them and run around. But at least I sound ferocious......
