Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-dog rescue

Birthday:
July 3rd 2002

Likes:
Eating! Second to that, being in Mom's hip pocket as often as possible.

Pet-Peeves:
She has none. Well, yes, not being able to go everywhere with Mom.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that squeeks and her best friend, a 2.5 yr old Golden Retriever.

Favorite Food:
Lady loves green beans, bananas and apples. Too bad she can't have them anymore - she needs to lose some weight.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere!

Best Tricks:
She shakes, she speaks on command, her obedience is a trick in itself - what a well-behaved young lady.

Arrival Story:
I had been on the RR Rescue list for over a year and received an e-mail on 12/21/04 that 2 purebreds had been taken to the local shelter. Imagine my dilemma, go to the shelter and skip the department Christmas Party. Well, it really wasn't much of a dilemma - I headed off to the shelter. What a beauty! She came home to me on 12/24/04 at 2.5 years old. What a great Christmas present.

Bio:
Lady has done several sessions of Reading with Rover and regularly visits an assisted living facility. We have cut back on the therapy work to allow more time at home and to do more training. The training is her passion and mine. Lady still participates in obedience training every week working with the new dogs, she is in agility training and doing a fabulous job. We are awaiting her AKC ILP to allow her to participate in AKC sanctioned obedience and agility trials.

It has been a long time since I posted anything. Mom has been so busy with work and the new puppy! How exhausting having a little one around to make my life miserable. What was she thinking when you brought him home 13 months ago? I never thought he was going to grow up, now he is 17 months old and is my favorite bud. We play, we argue over the best place to lie down, we walk together, we sleep together (sometimes). Thanks, Mom! I really do love this little guy!

It's been some time since we last posted an entry. It has been very busy with vacations, birthdays, lots of other stuff.

Mom still has me in agility - Seems like she may just be getting the hang of it and then what do I do but slow waaaaayyyy down and refuse to do the jumps, pretty much ignore the weave poles! I respond very well when there is cheering and applause for me. I must just be a big ham. Well, Mom got even and now we have not just a jump in the back yard but WEAVE POLES!!! I knew I had better start doing them or else. Now I am pretty good at it - but guess what - we had a 3 week break from class and we worked on the poles - but we go back to class tomorrow - what do you think if I just refuse to do them in class? She'll be so stunned - can't wait to see the look on her face when I do it - should be classic!

I did my 1st AKC Obedience Trial - scored 126. Not bad for the first time - Mom sure found out about handler error. We are working harder now to get ready for the next set of trials in November.

Oh yeah, at least she takes me to play with my Ridgeback buds (6 of 'em, count 'em) on Saturdays! I'm being real snooty right now - those guys are just trying their best to be at my side - they'll soon learn that I'm royalty! Wait until I let loose and start chasing them - I'm FAST, FAST, FAST! Hope those puppies can keep up with me.
