Likes: Carrying his frisbee around at the dogpark and catching it. Likes to growl.
Pet-Peeves: His dog and cat pals getting too close to him. Telling him to stop growling - he just does it more.
Favorite Toy: His frisbee, halloween tombstone toy, his squeaky boat stuffy which no longer has a squeaker.
Favorite Food: Human food (not too much), Marrowbone (morning treat) and dog food.
Favorite Walk: Anywhere, especially the dogpark.
Best Tricks: Sit, shake, turn around
Arrival Story: We came across Strider when he was in his mama's tummy. We rescued his mom from the street and discovered she was pregnant. She had 7 puppies and we kept him. We think he is part ACD because he was born white (except where he has black areas) as you can see in his baby picture. He's the one at the top of the pic. He gradually changed color as he grew.
Bio: He is cranky at times. He was born an old soul. His frisbee is his security blanket. He almost died when he was 2 years old from an illness. He's named after the character in The Lord Of The Rings. His middle name is Elessar.
I haven't been able to come here sooner because I'm still so
heartbroken over Strider's passing. I find it hard to come
here and see pictures of him so alive, yet knowing I'll never
have him here with me again. I miss him bringing me his blue
hamburger stuffie to throw for him over and over and over again
while I watched TV. I miss him following me everywhere. I miss
him licking my feet. I miss his cranky growl. I just plain miss
him, and everything he did, so much.
I want to thank all of you who sent gifts, comments, and paw-
mail. They are all so appreciated. And to those who set his
pic as your main pic, you touched my heart so deeply I couldn't
help but cry.
Thank you all for caring about my dear Strider.
