Oh my doG! What's a pup to do? I've been tagged again. This time by my lovely pal, Jolanda. Hmmmm. I'm running out of stuff to write about myself. Well, lemme try this. I'm sure something will come to me.

Four jobs I have:
1. Lovin' my mom.
2. Lookin' good while ridin' in the van.
3. Keepin' the other pups in line.
4. Bein' a mentor to the foster pups.

Four places I've lived:
1. I've lived on a reservation.
2. I've lived with a foster mom after being rescued from the rez.
3. I've lived with my forever family for 7 years.
4. I wish to live nowhere else but with my forever family.

Four places I've been:
1. I've been to a lake.
2. I've been to lots of pet stores.
3. I've been to the mountains.
4. I've been to lots of places in my dreams.

Four places I'd rather be:
1. I'd rather be a taste tester at the Marrowbone factory.
2. I'd rather be a taste tester at a whipped cream factory. (Real whipped cream, not that cool whip stuff!)
3. I'd rather be under the covers right now 'cause its cold.
4. I can't think of any other place I'd rather be than where I am right now, loved and cared for.

Now 7 fact about myself:
1. I'm well loved.
2. I love everybody.
3. I teach hole digging 1o1.
4. I love Marrowbones!
5. I beg for food like I'm starvin'.
6. I sit, shake, kiss, turn 'round, go down, and roll over!
7. My mom thinks I'm so very handsome. *Blush*

Now on to tagging some buds.
1. Mr. Hiredhand Red Roper.

2. Mr. Floppydonkeydog Eli.

3. The Lovely Miss Abby.

4. Miss Little Bit Maddie.

5. Miss Sweet P Pita.

6. Mr. Boo-Boo Beauregard.

7. Mr. Lucky Guy Sunny.

Done. Phew.

Yep, I've been tagged. That hasn't happened in quite a while! And as Kirbo says: HOLY GUACAMOLE!

So here goes. I'm supposed to tell you all 7 thing about myself. Hmmm, let's see what I'm willing to disclose:

1. I'm the biggest dog in my household. I said "biggest" not "fattest"!!

2. I like to sleep under the bed.

3. I'm a treat hound. I LOVE treats! (Who doesn't?!) Especially the whipped cream my dad makes. Mmmmmmmm!!

4. I'm a mentor to the foster pups. I teach them how to d-i-g.

5. I hate to get tickled! I'm serious. Don't try it!

6. I like to ride shotgun so I can stick my head out the window. Sometimes that means that some human's gonna have to sit in the middle seat. (I have a van.) I rate, dudes!

7. I've been told I'm pretty mellow for a Cattle Dog. Yep, I'm a Mellow Fellow.

Now, I have to tag 7 pups. I shall return a little later with "The List".

Ok. I'm back. These a the 7 pups I'll be taggin'. Hope you can participate. If you can't, that's ok, too.

1. My new, good pal, Wyoming.

2. The sweetest little angel baby, Little Snoopy.

3. The lovely Miss Phoebe Wiggles.

4. Mr. Turtle Boy, Pippin.

5. The tuff little dude, Little Foot.

6. The talented beauty, Camila.

7. Miss Cutie Pie, Hanna Banana.

Have fun, puppers!


The Pawrty

Saturday, we went to Kirby's pa's party. It sure was fun.
All the pups had fun, too. Well, not true. Keighty musta
been in a bad mood, 'cause she kept growlin' at some of
the pups. Especially at Rowdy. He's a cool guy, not rowdy
at all, but for some reason she was being a jerk with him.
Poor guy. He just wanted to make friends. Mom said next
time, Keighty is stayin' at home.

Anyway, mom dressed us up as cows (Cooper, K8T, and I).
That's what she says but I beg to differ. I was dressed
up as a BULL! I am NOT a cow! Sorry. Cows have udders.
I do not have an udder. I come with a different type of
equipment, thank you very much but I will not go into
specifics at the moment. I'm sure you'll figure it out
on your own. I hope. The only COW there
was K8T. Yeah. A big fat, mean, annoying, itchy,
growly cow!

Oh yeah-there was some fancy shmancy dogs there,
too. Two Belgian Malinois. Very well mannered.
Made the rest of us look like trailer trash. Ooooo, I
better not say all of us. Let me put it this way - made
me and MY pack look like trailer trash. Waaait! Now
for those of you who actually live in a trailer, it's a
joke. Don't be offended, ok? My mom lived in a
trailer when she was a kid. We, on the other hand,
begged like there was no tomorrow. Like mom
never feeds us. Like we were strays off the street
that hadn't had a meal in days. We embarrassed
mom 'cause we acted like we were gonna take the
food right outta the peeps mouths. Sheesh!! Come
to think of it, that IS pretty bad. She had to put
me and K8T on leashes 'til the last peep finished
eatin'. Cooper was off beggin' in stealth mode
'cause she couldn't find him 'til she saw him on
someone's lap. Sneaky little dude. I wish I could
fit on someone's lap to do some stealth begging.
K8T can't possibly do anything stealth 'cause she's
a big FAT cow!! Aaaaand, some man there
said that I was "well loved" when I came up to
him so he could pet me. Was he implyin' that I
was chunky?! The nerve! I ain't chunky!! I'm buff!
Just ask my beeyouteeful friend, Sydney. She
gave me a "Dogster Stud" gift one time, so that's
saying somethin', right? I'm hunky, not chunky!!
Well . . . I may have a little bit of fat on me
but that's 'cause winter's gettin' near and I have
to have little layer of fat on me to keep
the chill offa me. Soundin' good so far?? Very
funny, mom. She's yellin' in the background
that I'm a dog, not a seal!

To make a long story even longer, everyone had
fun. All us pups looked pretty good in our
costumes. Lemme see . . . there was an angel, a
Rolex, an afro pup, a pumpkin, a surfer duuude,
a herd of bovines (us), uh, um, sheesh, I can't
remember the rest! All the peeps were pretty
cool, too. Lest I forget this, the cake was in
the shape of a bone. The frosting was delish.
How do I know? Mom let us taste a big chunk
(there's that word again) of it. Mmmmm boy!!
Thanks, Kirbo the Turbo, for havin' us at your

So, where's the next pawrty?? 'Cause I'm
totally ready for another one!!!


Sage is at her forever home now.

Hey, great news! Sage has been adopted!
Saturday at adoption clinic an older couple
was looking at the puppies when mom
arrived (late as usual). When mom was
putting Oliver and Sage in with the other
pups, they took one look at Sage and fell
in love. Usually the rescue group suggests
a trial to see if it will work out but they said,
"No, we want to adopt her right away
because when we take her, it'll be forever.
No bringing back." Mom told them that
she has been having a heck of a time
housebreaking her but they didn't mind.
They said that they would work with her
and commit to helping her with that.
How cool is that! Anyway, mom did a
home visit that same day and man, she's
now living in a beautiful home and her
backyard is awesome. Lucky doggie!

We're happy for you little sweet, timid
Sage. Oops! Her name is now Maya.
Good luck, Maya. It was an honor to
know you and play with with you for
that short time. Enjoy your life because
we know you'll be loved and cared for.


A quote that fits my mom

My mom was invited to a party
for Kirby's dad Saturday.

Along with the invitation, came
this quote. We don't know who
wrote it, but my mom really liked
it. It describes her to a "t".

"It came to me that
every time I lose
a dog they take
a piece of my
heart with them.

And every new dog
who comes into my
life gifts me with a
piece of their heart.

If I live long enough,
all the components
of my heart will be
dog, and I will
become as generous
and loving as they are."



Our little Conner (now Max) is now at his forever home.

If you know my mom, you've guessed it. She's been sad and shedding some tears for Conner. He's been out on a trial since Saturday 18th. She couldn't write about it in the diary sooner 'cause she'd start crying. It's working out at this place, so he'll be officially adopted in about a week or so.

Mom says that this little boy, actually not so little anymore, stole a piece of her heart. She says that he's a big love bug. He'd always come to wherever she was and ask her to love on him. He'd put his head on her chest and ask to be hugged and kissed or danced around. Then he'd go about his business and every 10 minutes or so, he'd come back for more. That's what she's been missing since Saturday. She knew he was one of the special ones. A little silly, special boy. She sure misses him.

She knew it would be hard 'cause he's been with us since about June. The longer they're here, the harder it is to let go.

Good luck, little dude. It was nice knowing you, digging holes with you, and hanging out with you.

Yep. I'm in there with the best of 'em. So are some of my crew. So, if you want, please vote for little ol' me. Ok? I'm pretty sure mom will enter some more pics of me so you might have to come back and vote for me again and again. Thanks! I'm Redford and I approve this message!

Just a heads up, pups, now our fosters from
the past and the ones we have at the present,
have their own page. So . . . mom won't be
putting anymore pics of them on my page.
That's good 'cause now there can be more
of ME. Go visit their page, ok.


Victims of Puppy Mills

We just read a sad story. About a victim of those
horrendous puppy mills. My pack and I are included
in everything that goes on in our house so it's hard to
imagine any pup being deprived of anything. It's hard
to imagine living your whole life in a cage, being used
as a puppy making machine. It's hard to imagine
what these dogs go through . . .

But one thing we're glad of is that these horrible
places are getting everyone's attention and maybe,
just maybe, with all the bad publicity they're
getting, one day they'll just be a thing of the past.
Now, wouldn't that be wonderful?

Please stop by and read Breeze's story. It'll break
your heart. But she's one of the lucky ones. There
are still so many out there suffering and dying
with no one to care for them.


Hmmmm . . . Just thought you might like to know

My mom thought this important enough to put in my diary. It's from dogster pup, Rex Mi Amor. So I hope he doesn't mind that she copied it from Dogsterholics and pasted it here. Thanks, Rex.

No Friend To Animals...Get All The Facts And Protect Our Animals

John McCain has just announced his choice for the Republican VP slot: Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who is no friend to animals. In 2007, Palin announced a $150 bounty for wolves. Why? Because wolves prey on moose and caribou, two favorite targets for hunters in Alaska. So Palin instituted a program to encourage hunters to kill wolves so that there would be more moose and caribou for hunters to kill. A lawsuit by Defenders of Wildlife resulted in the Alaska Superior Court ruling that the state Department of Fish and Game did not have the authority to institute a bounty program. A state program to shoot wolves and bears from the air continues, and on August 26, 2008, Ballot Measure 2, which would have stopped the aerial gunning of predators, was defeated by state voters.

Palin is also a hunter and a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association.

In addition, Palin has sued the Bush administration to delist polar bears under the Endangered Species Act because the protection of polar bears interferes with drilling for oil and gas. Palin even penned an op-ed for the New York Times, explaining her scientific arguments against protecting polar bears. Isn't it funny how her op-ed doesn't mention drilling for oil?

Needless to say, from an animal rights standpoint, Sarah Palin would be a disastrous VP.
