   Leave a bone for Petey

Petey Keddy Hudson, monkey, Mister Dog, you little sh*t, Petey Boy Jones

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

February 26th 2003

BALLS! Tennis balls, racquet balls - anything bounces and rolls - a tomato or potato will do in a pinch.

That the cat won't play with him, that he only gets two meals a day, that the Snausages are locked up.

Favorite Toy:
Lately, it's been his purple plush giraffe that he can shake until he's in a stupor. He can also peel a tennis ball like a banana in about 10 minutes flat.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
The beach! Or to the dog run in the summer when he can drop tennis balls into the kiddie pool or just stand in the pool, chomping on a ball, and marinading.

Best Tricks:
Sit, shake, lie down. The best though is when he rolls his gums up over his teeth and smiles at you when you first come home. His whole body just wriggles with delight.

Arrival Story:
I know, I know, but he's from a pet store. He was on sale (shhh! He doesn't know!) because he was 4 1/2 months old and too big to be in the window with the teeny pups. All these dogs were yapping in their cages and he was right in the center (think a Canine Hollywood Squares and he's Whoopi) just chilling and wagging his tail. We were waiting for each other.

In his spare time, Petey enjoys modeling and can be seen at He's done catalogs, websites, and runway work! He has a better wardrobe than I do. He's big for a Cairn, a solid 26 pounds, but has been on 10 flights, loves to howl like a wolf when he's impatient, and has met 4 Oscar winners!

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Hi everyone!

Boy, it's really been awhile since I've been able to get the computer to myself! Today, my mom woke me up from a nap in my favorite chair to go play in the snow. Yipee! But first, I had to sit in her lap like a big baby and get my boots on and my "Woof!" hoodie. Now, lotsa people laugh about dogs in boots, but I gotta tell you, you really need them in NYC. There's lots of nasty salt and de-icer tossed on the sidewalks in front of big buildings. And that can crack our poor paws. The de-icer is even worse, because it heats up to melt the ice and that burns my paws - and then when I lick my paws to cool them off, it gets into my stomach and I get a bad tummyache. Not good. There is salt/de-icer that is pet and children-friendly. If your people need to use it, ask them to get this kind. (You can find it online.)

Okay, so once I had all my silly clothes on, we went over to the playground and I got to run, run, run after my favorite green rubber ball. There were some kids playing there and they'd throw the ball for me, too. This was the first real snow we've had all winter and it was so much fun. It's still snowing now, so I'm taking a big nap in my favorite chair so I'll be ready to go out later with my pal Bear.

Snowballs to all my pals!

Your pal,



Soggy doggy!

I'm back from a week at the beach, visiting Grandma. Our plane was delayed for 3 hours but everyone was very immpressed with my good behavior, as I was in my case for seven hours! Mom whined more than I did.

I got to run off leash on the beach every morning - chasing my favorite blue rubber ball (and a few seagulls). I'd run and run and then plop down in the ocean to cool off. Mom tried to take me past the breakers to swim which I really didn't like. I'm a wader (though I think I may be part Labrador Retriever too!)

Now I'm back to pavement and dipping into kiddie pools! Oh well - now what's this I hear about "dog days?"


Hey! I'm 3 now! I had a birthday yesterday.

So in dog years, I'm really 21 - old enough to drink! My mom told people that I wanted a stripper for my birthday, but frankly, I'd settle for a barrel of tennis balls to peel like bananas.

I did get a present from our friend Nishi the pug - a furry pink high-heeled shoe with a brand name of "Bark Jacobs!" (I have two "Jimmy Chews" - I think I'll soon have as many fancy shoes as my mom!)
