   Leave a bone for Kitai

Mom calls me "Fuzz-a-lumpa" - The neighbors call me "Scruffles" - When I run around the house like a crazy dog my mom calls me "Bazonkers"

Quick Bio:

July 1st 2002

Food, Walks, People and Toys in that order...O.K. people and toys are tied depending who the person is vs. which toy

People who don't give me food, lawn mowers & leaf blowers

Favorite Toy:
The newest one

Favorite Food:
People food: tri tip, banana, cheese, chicken, salmon and fresh blueberries.... Dog food: Flint River Ranch, Solid Gold: Barking at the Moon, Wysong and Orijen... Dog Treats: PCI chicken nibbles

Favorite Walk:
Our neighborhood... Even our neighbors who don't own dogs buy me treats and toys!

Best Tricks:
Hop on my hind legs like a kangaroo, crawl on my stomach, hurdle over Mom's arm, dance in circles on my hind legs, high five, nap time, speak on command, roll over, sit up to say please, shake, sit with a treat on my nose and wave...

Arrival Story:
Mom found me at the humane society. I was a stray they found in a field. Two weeks later my lame owner had not come to claim me so I just sat there, withdrawn and sad. Mom took me home and discovered that I was indeed the perfect fuzzy buddy she had hoped for! __________________________________ I even have a cool new website that tells my story of how Mom found me and what a great life I have now! You can take a peek at _________________________________ WHAT'S IN A NAME? "Kitai" prounounced key-tie, means to hope with confident anticipation in Japanese. It was perfect as I was certain the right person was going to rescue me from an untimely demise! I mean come on...I was less then a year old and way too cute to be sent on that big snooze to doggie heaven.

_________________________________ WHAT DOGSTER IS ALL ABOUT: Well I am one lucky pup. I have so many great pals here on Dogster. Today in the forums someone asked "Who is your Dogster idol?" I had to answer JOMBIE because she is the sweetest pup we know here on Dogster. She NEVER says anything mean to or about anyone else here, and it's been almost a year since we've been friends. I am very honored to be friends with someone so sweet and kind and gracious! _________________________________ ETHNICITY: With the new interest in designer mutts Mom has decided I'm a "Shcnapso" since she thinks I'm half Schnauzer and half Lhasa Apso. I have the body shape, coloring, and underbite of a Lhasa Apso, but the wire haired terrier coat and little white eyebrows of a Schnauzer. When I'm lovey dovey I act like a lap dog, when I play I'm pure terrier! Mom says I may actually be half Shih Tzu which would make me "Schntzu" but she thinks that sounds kind of gross so we're going with the Lhasa Apso lineage.

Forums Motto:
Chia Kitai!


I've Been On Dogster Since:
November 8th 2005 More than 10 years!

I Was In The:
2006 Valentine's Day Party!

Original Post:

LOST GERMAN SHEPHERD DOG (Grandview Heights X Upper Arlington area of) COLUMBUS OH


Rosie escaped this morning 11-5-09 from her pet sitters fenced backyard. She actually managed to unlatch the gate and presumably is headed for home. Her owner is one of my best friends and was scheduled to go out of town today hence the need for a pet sitter.

Rosie is an adult, female, German Shepherd with a very black colored face. AC saw her at North Star and Northwest Blvd. at 10:00 AM this morning but couldn't catch her. If you find her or think you've seen her please call 614-297-8380 or 614-787-1405. She is normally a friendly dog but was very scared when she was last sighted and took off running. Please let us know if you see her.

Rosie was wearing a pink gingham collar, she has all her tags on.

Please help me spread the word to anyone you know who lives in the Columbus area. Share this message on Facebook and retweet on Twitter.

We are worried sick for Rosie's safety.

Thank you for any help!


Does Your Dog Need a Blog?

Mom just wrote a guest blog post for the Dogster blog about how putting together a blog can help support shelters, rescues and responsible breeders, and educate other pet owners about socialization, cool new products and upcoming pet friendly events.

Yup that's right! Mom, not me, actually wrote on Dogster as a furless human.

Does Your Dog Need a Blog?

It's kind of long but so far her pals have told her they thought the info was helpful and their eyes didn't glaze over reading it.

I guess that's a compliment :D

She even explains how to make your own cute business cards to give to people with your own url to your dogster page if you would rather use your Dogster Diary then start an actual blog.

Mom is featured in the New Years Resolution part talking about my new spay and neuter fund. But there's a snappy picture of me in my winter scarf right next to the part about her. Mom's Quote Click Here

And I'm entered in the "Photo of the Year" contest! If anyone has the time to go vote for me that would be swell! I have some very tough competition. One is a copy of his book in OUTER SPACE! How can a scruffy mutt compete with that? OUTER SPACE!

Link to Vote For Me!

We didn't even know about the photo contest until our pal Daisy Muddypaws messaged me!
