Woofstock 2007

On Saturday mommy took me to Woofstock 2007 in Balboa Park sponsored by Canine Companions for Independence. I was my usual naughty self, pulling mommy here and there. There were so many people, pups, and things to see and smell.

I decided to do the worst naughty possible when mommy was talking to a K-9 policeman. (He had a boy Malinois in his car.) I was well behaved. In fact, he said that I was a very calm Malinois.

Mommy was totally frustrated 'cuz she wanted to ask the policeman how to get me to listen and behave. But, she couldn't, 'cuz I was on my best behavior, and he would have thought mommy was nuts - BOL

Love,

Hope

 

Our Third Anniversary as a Family

April 3rd 2007 8:56 am

Three years ago today, mommy, grandma, Bubba, and me became a family. I was about five months old. I was in a large cage when I saw mommy for the first time. The nice people in the shelter called me Sugar ‘cuz they said that I was very sweet.

Mommy called me over to her. When I came to her, and stuck my nose through the bars, she touched my nose. I kissed and nibbled her fingers. Then she was gone. I was sad. Why does everyone leave me all alone?

Soon the woman who feeds and plays with me opened my cage, put my leash on, and there was mommy. We walked for a while, and then I was back in my cage all alone again. Again, I was sad. What's wrong with me?

Next, I was taken to a room where I saw grandma and Bubba for the first time. Mommy was there too. I went over to play with Bubba. He was so big. He moved back when I jumped at him, wanting to play. I think that he was afraid of me ‘cuz I was so young and he was much older. Finally, he sniffed me with his cold nose and barked. After that, they took me away. I was sad again. Was I a bad girl?

The woman took me into another room (so many rooms that I didn’t know about). She weighed me. I weighed 30 pounds. She looked at my tummy boo-boo. She called it a “spay”. She also brushed my hair, sprayed me with something smelly, and told me I was going home. What is home? Soon, I saw mommy, grandma, and Bubba. They were smiling at me. Mommy put a red collar and leash on me. She called me Hope. I was happy and wagged my tail.

We walked outside. Grandma held my leash tight and mommy held Bubba’s leash. I had never been outside before. I was so excited. I jumped on grandma and knocked her over in the grass. Yes, I've always been a naughty girl. I felt so bad so I kissed her face. Mommy helped grandma up, and we went into mommy’s car. Bubba sat in the back, and grandma held me in her arms, while mommy drove us home. I was very happy.

Even though my big brother Bubba is in heaven and grandma moved to Florida, leaving just mommy and me, I’m still so happy that mommy, grandma, and Bubba chose me to join their family.

Please, adopt your next dog and/or cat from a shelter. They need homes too!

Love,

Hope

PS: All of mommy's babies (including my big brother Bubba) were adopted from a shelter. Mommy and grandma know how much we need forever homes.

 

I'm too naughty for myself, too naughty for myself, and too- naughty for you!

Well I finally did it. Last night when mommy came home from work, I was feeling very mouthy. I wanted to nibble everything in sight. So I started nibbling mommy's fingers, arms, legs, shoes (you get the picture). Mommy held my face trying to calm me down, and then I saw them - her bosoms (I'm keeping it PG here). Being a very mouthy Malinois, I lunged. Mommy was quick - but not quick enough - BOL

Love,

Hope

 

Oh My - What's happening to ME!

I was called (gasp) a GOOD girl last night.

When mommy and I were on our evening walk a couple came towards us. Mommy told me to sit and started giving me my cookies. When the couple passed us, the man said I was a good girl, and the lady said I was beautiful.

Beautiful - yes (of course, just LOOK at ME!), but good - I've never been so insulted. I'm naughty. Do you hear me - I'm NAUGHTY, VERY VERY NAUGHTY!

Love,

Hope

PS: I love my COOKIES. Mommy says I'm a BIG COOKIE MONSTER just like my big brother Bubba was.

 

This is what an AKC judge wrote about ME

Mommy submitted my pictures (body and head shots) for an AKC judge to evaluate. This is what she said about ME:

Head Shot:

Not just another pretty face, but one of elegance & intelligence; "Hope" appears alert & ready for anything.

Body Shot:

This Belgian appears well balanced & square; strong & well muscled. Elegant without being bulky, she looks to be in great condition.

I'm so flattered and excited, I could pee right now - BOL.

Love,

Hope

Last Friday night mommy got a call saying that there was no group classes on Saturday afternoon - not enough pups. I was so happy that I ran around the house a few times, grabbed mommy's jacket, nibbled her arms and feet, and finally gave her a love bite on her bottom - BOL. Yes, I'm a very naughty girl.

Life is GOOD!

Love,

Hope

 

Holiday Presents

This year I got lots of gifts: two over-sized (pink and red) tennis balls (I destroyed the pink one already - BOL), a bag of Large Greenies, a stuffed soft bone toy that squeaks (mommy won't let me play with it, 'cuz she knows that I'll rip it apart), a teddy bear blanket, and mommy took me on an extra walk each day she was off last week. She also let me dig in my favorite place and say hello to my doggie and people friends. I love my mommy.

Mommy also bought two (not one, but TWO) no-pull leashes to keep me from dragging her around the neighborhood.

Oh, I'm also going to go to school (again) this month for 8 weeks. Mommy says I must be a good girl, but I love to be naughty. BOL

Love,

Hope

PS: I gave mommy gifts too - a sprained ankle and black and blue marks. BOL

 

The S Word - Oh No!

Mommy tried to put clothes on me this weekend. When she tried to put the hat on, I shook my head until it fell off, then I chewed it, and I flung it across the room.

Then mommy tried to put a (cute) shirt on me, Well I was not having any of that nonsense (dogs were born to be naked - BOL), and I started chewing the shirt before mommy could get it over my head. Finally mommy gave up.

I thought I had it made. My no-pull replacement leash is still not stock in and I can drag mommy where ever I want to. But NO, I heard mommy talking about me going to (obedience) school again next month. I guess I'll have to turn a new group of pups naughty (just like me) - BOL

Love,

Hope

I had my first taste of kitty doodie this morning during our morning walk. Mommy grabbed the doodie out of my mouth before I could gobble it down, but it was yummy.

Love,

Hope

PS: Mommy's not very happy with me.

 

I'm So Very Naughty

Yesterday morning when mommy was taking me for my walk, we stopped so I could make my doodie. When mommy was picking it up (on an incline) using a plastic bag, I decided to run from side to side. Well mommy lost her balance and fell into my doodie (BOL). Her pant leg was full of my doodie. She tried to wipe it off while scolding me AND holding the doodie bag (humans and doodie, such a funny combination).

Mommy disposed of my doodie in a trash can and took me home after I made my peepee (cutting our walk short) . Mommy scolded me again, gave me a time out, and had to change her pants so she could go to work. All this over doodie.

Love,

Hope

PS: I hope that my replacement no-pull leash NEVER arrives (BOL).
