Ear scritches and any attention from MEN!!!
Mommy losing her temper about anything! Other dogs playing with my favorite toy "Baby D". I'll share any other toy but that one!
It's called "Baby D" It used to be more than a rag really it did.
Pizza - although mom doesn't like when I steal it but I LOOOVEEEE pizza!
ANYWHERE! Really the secret is that I am walking mommy but all she has to do is start uttering this word and I'm jumping around all over the place to go! Gotta Go Gotta Go!
This one is funny, when someone calls me I go over towards them until I am justtttt outside their range to pat me...then they have to come the rest of the way! =) One more way I show that its all about me!
Oh she claimed my heart the first second I looked into her big brown eyes. We had been looking for another dog to keep our first dog company. I went there just to "see" and wasn't really planning to go home that day with another puppy...but then she claimed me. She was such a ball of fuzzy fuzzy fur and that face! There was no way she was being left behind! She was alllll about attitude from the first second of life and it showed all over that face. Resistance was futile and I admit I didn't put up much of a fight. From that moment forward she has owned me lock, stock & barrel. I cannot imagine what life would have been without her in the navigators seat. We've had some awesome adventures...some heart breaking...some that will make you laugh until it hurts. Its life with Rosie...and I wouldn't have it any other way!
What do you say about a dog who has it all??? She's been there for me when all my "two legger" friends bailed. She's been at my side through thick and thin and I couldn't ask for a better running mate. At around age 8 my Rosie bear was diagnosed with mast cell cancer and it scared the heck out of me. A large mast cell tumor had invaded her front right leg. Galantly her vet tried through 5 surgeries to save that leg and paw but it came down to either losing her before New Years or amputating. So over Thanksgiving I took a little while to ponder and "talk" things over with her. Finally I left it up to her to show me what she wanted. I curled up around her and spoke in her ear asking what she wanted...did she have a few more adventures left to share with her mom. The rest of that week she seemed to perk up, she ran, played and showed me she wasn't ready to give up the fight. On December 2nd, 2004 she became my tripod. The vet and his staff actually had a lot of concerns about even doing the amputation because she is such a large baby. They thought she would never really manage to get around. Of course they didn't tell me or Rosie this until several months later. She came through the surgery with flying colors but her blood count was dangerously low. I worried the first night something silly. I stayed there for HOURS leaning into her cage talking in her ear asking her to be strong. The next morning I called to find out her morning blood count and I could hear her barking in the background. The vet tech. on the phone laughed and said she was standing in her cage barking and would I come save them. I got there and saw a note taped above her cage it said simply, "WILL BOLT". I asked in confusion what that meant so they showed me. One opened the cage door and the other prepared to snag her as she bolted by. I started to laugh and cry. One day out of surgery on 3 legs and drugged and she was up and running! Bless her heart shes a champion. Four days later she came home from the hospital and neither she nor I have looked back. We've had so many more adventures in tripod land since that day. We took a longggggg car trip up to visit family this summer in the car, she spent the entire 4 days with her head out the window smiling her heart out. In our new apartment building she has quickly made friends with everyone and their "owners" and loves to go visiting. So much for thinking she would never get past being a tripod!
I am the ALPHA & OMEGA!

Rosie passed away on a Monday afternoon. It was Monday October 19, 2009 to be exact at approx. 3:30 in the afternoon. I was with her the whole time and held her face in her lap as Dr. Strasser aided her into her next journey. Sadly this journey did not include me for right now. Rosie fought cancer so hard and with such vigor - unfortunately, the cancer eventually had to win. We had almost 14 years together my little bear and I and there isn't a single moment in any day where I do not miss her presence in my life. It has been 3 months and I have to admit that the pain is almost as bad for me now as it was that final fateful day. She will be forever loved and forever missed.

So Hahahahaha at my doc. He told my mommy that she would only have another 6 months max. with me...that was 2 years ago! =) Don't get me wrong I love my doc. and he is as shocked as anyone is that I am still here but the end result is....I AM!!! I saw another birthday - October 31, 2008 and my mommy is sure hoping I see another Thanksgiving and Christmas! I know all she wants for Christmas is to spend it with me. I am just that loved!
Wow, has life changed for me in the past few months; let me tell you!!! In July we moved to a new house. Oh how I loveeeeeee having a yard to pee in again! =) Haha, I'm doing a great job of killing this one patch of grass. I just hop around out there looking all cute and mom stands there laughing. I don't like the stairs though. Seems like every door has two or three darn stairs....don't they know us three leggers just don't do well on stairs? Silly humans. On top of moving into the house with mommy, C.C and Taz....we moved in with Terry (Dad) and the two kids. Now I like having them around, most of the time! Sometimes though they either ignore me too much or pay too much attention to me! Mom seems happier to have them around too.
So that is my big update ------- just letting anyone know out there that I am still here! =)

My Rosie Bear ~
What would I say to you if I could communicate it on a piece of paper? I suspect there would be a lot less trees standing in the forest when I was done...Not to mention a lot of tears shed. You are my everything, and you know it! My alpha, my omega. You have remained by my side when all I had was you and all you did was love me more! You are my navigator through life's calm and stormy waters. When I come home and see that smile on your face nothing else in the world matters. The pain and stress of life fades and I can think of nothing else beyond burying my face in your fur. Of course my devotion could never end there...When you were diagnosed with cancer most people in our lives wanted me to end your pain. To say goodbye and send you to the rainbow bridge. While I too wanted your pain to end my precious queen I wanted to do so while still having you to hold. We found our way didn't we my little one...we beat the odds stacked against us and you have thrived! Whoever had the thought that you would never get around well on three legs I think issued you a challenge you couldn't resist! You knocked that challenge out of the ballpark. Not only do you get around but you are AMAZING in doing so. Proof positive can be found in the deep scratched on my diningroom table! I don't even mind you jumping up and standing on, it just goes to show everyone what a level of determination we have to remain together! In my darkest days you are my sunshine. In my happiest moments you are beside me sharing the joy and laughter. You are my world and my everything...I wouldn't have it or want it any other way! You are my best friend...
"Everytime I look at you
I don’t know where I’d be
Without you here with me
Life with you makes perfect sense
You’re my best friend"
