Birthday: April 10th 1999
Likes: Our family, rawhide bones, the couch, chasing rabbits through the hayfield
Pet-Peeves: Other dogs eating from his food bowl and baths
Favorite Toy: He has so many stuffed animals that he plays with, it's hard to pick just one.
Favorite Food: Pig ears and bacon treats
Favorite Walk: We usually go hiking in the mountains on trails...he loves that. He also loves to run through the fields around our house.
Best Tricks: Flash has several best tricks...one trick is he will stand on his hind legs and bark for a treat.
Arrival Story: Unfortunately, Flash was abandoned when his previous owner moved from his house and left Flash tied to the porch. Somehow this dog escaped the porch he was tied up too. When he showed up at my house I was outside in the front yard. I felt something staring at me and I turned around and there was this dog looking at me. It was like he appeared out of nowhere. I was told by several neighbors that he had actually been from door to door trying to get someone to take him in. He was terribly hungry, thirsty and scared. I've had Flash since 2002 and I feel blessed that he came and found me to take him in. He is my Best Friend!!!
Bio: We aren't for sure about Flash's breed. We are going by what the vet told us. The only way that you can tell about the Shar-Pei is when he sleeps on his back, you can see all the wrinkles on his forehead.
On October 21st, my Mommy came to the Dogster website and found my picture on the front page of Dogster as Dog of the Week. She was in shock and amazed that I could be awarded such an honor. I got so many rosettes, pmails, furiend requests, stars and group messages. I wanted to take the time to thank everyone for congratulating me and sharing this with me. It's a one in a lifetime experience. I love my family but I really love my furiends on Dogster. Thank you all for the kind words. It meant alot to me. I hope to see you all on the front page of Dogster someday too. You all are so deserving of this. ~Flash~

My Mommy came to Dogster this morning and she was just on her first cup of coffee. She glanced at the front page of Dogster and there was my picture. She thought she was seeing things being that she was half asleep. She had to get closer to the computer screen to realize that I was awarded Dog of the Week. Mommy teared up and called my Daddy who was at work. Daddy couldn't believe it either. I'm just a mix breed Basset Hound that some folks wouldn't think deserve this kind of award. But the fact is, I'm loyal, cute, intelligent, short, smelly, fast as a "Flash" of lightning, goofy and cuddly. I love my family and whomever put my name in the hat for this award, I luv ya too. My Mommy and I are in shock but feel blessed this morning. I will only receive one of these on Dogster in my lifetime. I will never forget it.
On May 28, 2009 Mommy took me to see our veternarian. For a week, Mommy thawght that I had an eye infection. Poor Mommy, she was worried sick and tried treating it herself. Sometimes, human medicine just don't work all that well for us pups but hey, it was the thawght that counted. So, my eye was getting worse and worse and Mommy finally made me an appointment at my vet's office. She had to go to work that day so she dropped me off and she was so worried that I might think she wasn't coming back to get me. And hey, I had it made...of course Mommy doesn't know this but the nurses were beau-ti-ful. They pampered me and talked baby talk to me and I ate it up...BOL! Getting back to my eye now, my veternarian discovered that I had a large grass seed in my upper eyelid and it had scratched my cornea. This grass seed (Mommy and Daddy believe) came from our hayfield from where I run and chase rabbits. I can't help it...rabbit hunting is in my blood. You have to remember, I'm part Basset Hound. But Daddy came to my vet's office and the nurses were weally bragging on me. They thought that I was weally cute and smart. One nurse had me doing twicks and another nurse didn't want to see me leave. Ok, pawleese don't think that I'm being conceited...but the nurses made me feel proud of who I am and I'm a Basset Hound/Chinese Shar-Pei mix. I'm Flash........and proud of it! SHA-ZAM!
