   Leave a bone for Roman *2005-2010*

Roman, Romy, Mr.Man, Big Goof

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog-dog rescue

February 3rd 2005

Going for walks, his Mom and Dad, sleeping, treats, playing with annoying squeeky toys and friends (Lola and Kimbo), chasing the laser pointer, chasing squirrels and skunks

Being left alone (even for a minute), nail cutting, lighters

Favorite Toy:
Kong and anything else he can chew apart such as a frizbee, ropes, stuffed animals. So far, the only toy that survived for more than a week is his Kong

Favorite Food:
Raw meat with rice, some vegetables and fruits and his kibble. Oh and peanut butter! His treats! He learned to love his Pill Pockets!

Arrival Story:
Roman was adopted from the SPCA in Nanaimo. Since we had lost our precious boy Gus, my boyfriend's home was so lonely without a dog. One day, out of the blue, I decided to look at the SPCA on the island when I saw him looking so beautiful! I fell in love with Roman immediately and convinced my boyfriend to go "take a look". We took the ferry to the island and had our first meeting with the puppy. Needless to say, to our surprise, he came home with us that same day. Happy but yet speechless, we had a new baby to take care of. We named him Roman as we thought his previous name didn't suite him.

Roman, as we were told, is a Cane Corso/Pit Bull. At first glance, most people seem to think that he is a Boxer/Pit Bull, so he might be that too! It doesn’t really matter, we love him equally! Roman is a VERY dominant dog, but he has come a long way learning to listen to us. He went to doggy school so he knows all his commands very well! He absolutely loves kids and people and of course other dogs. Since he plays rough he then adores dogs his size or bigger, though the smaller ones seem to intrigue him sometimes. His best pals are his gf Lola and the tiny MinPin Kimbo. He really is a true suck who loves to just sit on your lap, relax and snore. Last year (2009), Roman was taken to the vet for drastic weight loss and later diagnosed with Cushings disease. While being treated for that, his weight still didn't improve and my 80lbs boy went as low as 68lbs. He was so severely underweight that his collar sat on his shoulders. He was referred to a specialist and after ultrasounds, x-rays and finally exploratory surgery to perform a biopsy on his liver, it was discovered he had pretty advanced liver failure. He had to be on so many meds and actually did well for bit but sadly had to be put down. Everyone misses him and his goofiness.

Hello everyone, this is Roman!
Mom finally let me enter in my diary. Sheesh took a while mom!!!
Yesterday I was drinking out of the toilet bowl again, and mom and dad got really mad at me. What's the big deal!?! Dad says I have to drink out of those bowls for doggies but I prefer the toilet. It's big enough for big boys like me! I guess I have to listen to them, they say I have some dominance problems? Me? I'm just being cheeky! I like to test mom and dad and sometimes I even get away with it! Woof!
Mom said she'd update those pictures of me since I was only 6 months there. I've grown so big, that I even received two new collars!

That's it for now, I’ll keep all my pals updated ;oP
Off to my crate.
