|-mutt||-part feral||-dog rescue|
January 15th 1997
Food, her little brother Wilbur, her human family, being brushed, walks, small animals (she is very gentle with them, especially with bunnies!)
Strange people/dogs, being alone, baths, having her nails trimmed
Stuffies, but little brother Wilbur usually destroys them pretty quickly so she will usually settle for rope toys or a tennis ball.
Everything! People food, dog food, cardboard boxes, window blinds, this girl isn't just food-motivated, she is convinced that the world is her cookie!
Anywhere with her favorite people and her little brother. She's not a big fan of the dog park, but there is a wildlife reserve with reails through it near the dog park that she really enjoys.
Actually, her best 'trick' is her wonderful manners. She walks well on a loose lead, she knows 'leave it' when I don't want her to eat things off the ground, and she greets people who come to our house in a somewhat mellow manner.
My family had been pondering getting a dog for some time, but the time never seemed right. When it finally did we went to an adoption fair put on my a loacal rescue "just to look". There, a small brown dog with big ears calmly put her paws up on the gate of her pen and told us she was ready to go home. It was love at first sight, and nobody has ever looked back.
Her foster mom told us before we adopted her that Star had had a heart murmer as a puppy, but the rescue group paid for the vet to fix it back up. She has a visible scar from her open heart surgery, but she has never had any heart problems after that.
Star is a coyote hybrid. She is beautiful, loving, and wonderful, but she can also be a challenge at times. Separation anxiety doesn't even begin to describe the problems she has with being left alone, even for a short time. She chewed her way through a solid oak door, wooden blinds, and a crate. She will tear the screens out of our windows if we leave them open so that she can leave. She is very picky about which dogs she wants to be friends with, which is challenging if another dog bounds up to say hello and she doesn't want to.
We love her very much, which makes the extra work to keep her happy worthwhile, but please don't adopt a wolf or a coyote hybrid unless you are really up to the challenge.

Darling Star, what would I have done without you? Though we live apart now, I think of you all the time, and I look forward to visiting you. You taught me so much while I was growing up, and I hope I can repay at least some of that kindness. Your love and devotion mean so much to me, and you will always be my canine soul-mate.
This is a special Tail of Devotion

Today Mom and I went walking. Wilbur didn't come with us because mom had to to go the store and Wilbur pees inside sometimes. While we were out, water started falling from the sky! This happens sometimes, and I hate it!!
I got really scared and tried to slip out of my collar and run home. Mom took me home right away, but I was still so scared when I got home that I didn't even want to play with Wilbur. I think Mom was mad because she had to walk BACK to the store after that, but I'm just glad I'm warm and dry now.
The big male human hasn't been home in a few days. He's loud so I'm kinds glad, but he also used to walk us in the mornings so I kinds miss him too.
