   Leave a bone for Rudy

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

April 29th 2000

Rudy likes running, "play" fighting with Chase, riding in the car, sleeping under the covers, and having his "bum" scratched above his tail.

Rudy hates baths, being messed with when he's sleeping, and when someone pops their gum.

Favorite Toy:
Rudy loves his turkey leg that is loud and obnoxious--Thanks, Wendy! :) He also loves his Kong and bones.

Favorite Food:
Rudy loves Scooby Snacks, popcorn, gummi bears, juice from the tuna fish can and Pedigree Little Champions.

Favorite Walk:
We go on walks around the neighborhood, but Rudy usually ends up pulling me down the street! He does better when Matt walks him and I walk Chase.

Best Tricks:
Rudy knows the following command words: sit, stay, lay down, and cutest of all, "shake paw". He also understands "get in the bed", "pee pee outside", "go get your ball", "get on your blanket," and "bye bye in the car."

Arrival Story:
We brought home Rudy spontaneously from our Fourth of July vacation in Nags Head! He was irresistible!! :) He faked us out...he pretended to be so sweet and calm, and then as soon as we got him outside he was running all around like a mad dog.

Rudy's breeders are in Greensville, NC. I have spoken to them on the phone before.

"Rudy the Protector"

Well, since I'm pregnant again, Rudy has turned into "Protector Man!"--(anyone watch Desperate Housewives?). Anyway, when I was pregnant with Anna Reid he knew something was up. He would lay beside me all the time and lay his head over my stomach. He acted very strangely and wanted Matt and Chase to stay away. This time, since we have a 2 year old, they stay outside more often, so it isn't as obvious. However, at night and in the morning when we're in the bed, he does the same thing as before. He and Chase get in fight after fight when Chase gets too close or gets into Rudy and I's space. When Matt comes to bed at night, Rudy gets as close to me as he can and must be touching me at all times during the night. He lays right up beside my legs or up by my chest. It is too funny how he shows his protective side. That's him being Jack Russell!

Although Rudy is considered "middle-aged" now, he doesn't act much different than he did as a puppy. He is still high-energy and loves to catch and fetch. He might be a tad calmer than he used to be, but he is a puppy at heart!
