   Leave a bone for Austin

Chewy, Austonian, Stinky, Kootness

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

May 1st 2005

He loves attention and his mommy!

Austin hates when we vacuum, scold him, tickle his paws, not give him what he wants.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeaks but he loves stealing my undergarments.

Favorite Food:
We bought him some doggy chicken jerky and goes crazy over it. He also LOVES Dingo brand bones and rejects the generic ones. Austin also loves ice, he picked it off from inside my glass and loves crunching on it.

Favorite Walk:
As soon as you say the word "outside" he gets hyper and is just glad to take a walk. (we live in an apartment)

Best Tricks:
Kissy, shake, sit, up and dance

Arrival Story:
My husband and I moved to another city and we had talked about getting a puppy. We live in south Texas so we considered traveling out to find a puppy. We were going out to dinner one night and we were very dressed up when we stumbled upon a man with a sign, "Puppies for sale." We stopped to take a look and out came the most adorable little thing I have EVER seen! He came to me with his muddy paws and stepped all over my dress. I fell in love with him, forgot about dinner and took him home.

Austin is very protective of me, he does not like it when my husband kisses me. He will sleep in the middle and streches out as far as possible to keep him off me. He has a wonderful internal clock that keeps me busy. Everytime we tell Austin that we're going out (he hates it and hides under the couch whinning) he assumes we have something for him when we get back (and we do!). He will dig through the shopping bag until he finds his new toy and trots off away with it. We feel lucky to have such a wonderful little one to love.

Okay so take a look at my silly pictures...I am TOTALLY PEEVED! Mom got me and my sis costumes...and of course they have to have a silly hat. Well today, I chewed up mommy's favorite jeans and she said that she would forgive me...IF...I would pose for some pics in my Halloween costume. Boy do I regret it! Mom would not stop laughing because she said I looked really cute but totally miserable! NOT A LAUGHING MATTER! If it gets me more treats...hmm I would consider wearing it again...but for now...I will give mom the cold shoulder for making me wear it. Humph!

Totally Peeved,
Austin-The TEMP Dino


Emergency Trip to the Vet

So last Saturday I was playing with my sister and all of a sudden I just calmed down. This was very unlike me and my mom noticed it right away; I became lethargic and she took me to the restroom to put some cold compresses on me and I just began to vomit violently. She reassured me that it was okay and for me to just get all the junk out and I would feel better. Well it did not work. Mom noticed that my gums became white and that I was not moving, I was not myself. She says that I got this look in my eyes, that I looked like I was giving up. She became hysterical and picked me up and said, "I am not going to lose you." She called the vet and the vet said that she was unavailable and would need to find someone else to see me. My mom finally found someone that was available and rushed me to them. While my dad was driving, my mom was comforting me, massaging my chest, and giving me kisses doing everything possible to make sure I would remain conscience. Upon arrival to the vet I was examined throughly blood and other test were done. Although my mom did not quite trust the vet, I got a clean bill of health and this was enough to ease her nerves and send me home. My tummy was still not doing good so mom went to get some Benadryl (somehow she thought I had an allergic reaction to something) and Pedialyte to help hydrate me. Sure enough, some insect bit me that the vet overlooked but thanks to mom's watchful eyes and quick thoughts I am A-Okay! Word of advice, keep the Benadryl handy!

Bark on!


My Tail of Devotion for Austin

To My Austonian, the Stinky Kootness.

As I fight back tears to express the range of emotions that I feel for you, I know that if you could sense my brief moment of sadness you would come lick my face, so for the same brief moment, I am glad I am still at work. You came into our lives on hot summer day, July 1, 2005. I remember the date like it was yesterday. We saw your then FurParents and your actual father. Out you came, "Buddy" they called you. That beautiful little patch over your eye and your breath still smelled of your mother's milk. You looked at me and I fell in love, like I had only done once before. Your father and I decided that you were the one, the baby that we had wanted. We told your previous "owners" that we needed go to the ATM on block away and would be right back. $260.00 was your price, but really I have never known happiness to be so inexpensive. Austin you are my everything, my special little boy. I love you with all my heart, unconditionally like you do. I have never known such happiness until I had you. Two days ago, I secretly began to count the kisses you give me when I get home. I am so lucky to receive 100 kisses per day! I have never known any being to love with such devotion like you. You place your paw in my face as if to caress it. You sleep by my side as if to protect me. Some people say that there is no possiblity that any animals can love, but they have not met you darling. The way you look at me everyday shows me that you are capable of loving, and what's more, you love me. Thank you for being my best friend and one of the greatest loves of my and your father's lives.

I love you baby,

This is a special Tail of Devotion
