December 17th 2005

spinning, attacking the Mickey Mouse slippers (oops RIP 06/06), ice cubes, licking people, and RETRACTOBALL 3000!

skateboards, rollerblades, baths, getting my ears and teeth cleaned, anything resembling a big stick (including french bread), the car

Favorite Toy:
there's so many! my squeaky "Octopode", rope, Mickey slippers, kong, and the new RETRACTOBALL 3000

Favorite Food:
Chicken - though I rarely get any!

Favorite Walk:
Through the park to where the birds hang out and back to the fountain

Best Tricks:
My BEST tricks are "whirlie!" (spin), "talk to me", and I recently learned how to chew gum. But I know a lot more!

Arrival Story:
After many months of looking we visited a shelter outside of Lima, when I notice this little semi-yellow dog paired up with another very barky dog. He wasn't barking though, but every time I came up to the pen and started talking he would get excited and spin around a bunch of times. I brought my husband over, but he wasn't too thrilled, mainly because he was associating him with the other barky dog. But we couldn't agree on any other dog, so we decided to come back next weekend. I lobbied hard all week for "the dog that spins" and he finally relented, saying if we couldn't agree on any other dog we could get that one next weekend. Sure enough, we couldn't agree on any other dog: he was the only one I wanted anyway, so we took him home! (my husband really loves him now of course!)

We love our little Wash, so named partly after a Firefly character, and partly because that's the first thing we had to do when we got him home. He's a funny looking little critter with the biggest smile I've ever seen, a huge silly underbite, big puppy paws, and that proud plumy tail of his! Wash loves people and will give anyone kisses as long as you let him. He likes most other dogs and other dogs like him too - a little too much! Boy dogs, girls dogs - it doesn't matter, they all tend to get a little too interested! He's got a long list of girlfriends who he likes to romp with. He's very dog-sexual, as we like to call it... But he'll only put up with so much of it from some dogs. He might be little but he doesn't know it - he pushes rottweilers and golden retrievers around! He's a good protector, warning us of people at the door until he learns that they're friends, and people on the street he thinks are sketchy. He even guards outside the bathroom door when we're in there. Of course, then there's the craziness - he's got enough energy for a dog three times his size. He loves to run, jump and spin, chase the birds in the park until they're all off the ground, and attack the water fountain. He gets so excited sometimes he tends to repeat the latest trick he's learned even when I say something else. ADHD behavior aside, he's a really smart little guy. In 3 months he's learned 25 words: sit, down, come here , talk to me, "whirlie!" (spin), drop it, no, bad dog, good boy, Octopode, rope, kong, ball, "Kill Mickey!", skip it (stop sniffing and keep moving), up, vamos, shhh (for sneaking up on birds), go-get-those-birds, wait (to cross the street), okay (go ahead and cross), off, go-get, bring, and of course his name. We couldn't have asked for a better dog than Wash - I had no idea dogs could be this cool, and I've had dogs before!

Wow I've been distracted by Retracto-ball for that long?

Wow, has it been 3 months? I have a good excuse - RETRACTO-BALL!!! Dad put a tennis ball on an old retracting leash - IT IS THE BEST THING EVER! I could chase that thing forever. It goes around in circles, it jumjps around, it zips back and forth... Mom only lets me play with it if there's no other dogs around, though, because she says I get too "distracted" and "antisocial". Come on, my 15 girlfirends can wait... Oh yeah, Mom took a count and I have 15 girlfriends... that SHE knows about! Oh well, she's probably right.


I like to sleep upside down

Mommy and Daddy put these funnny easter bunny ears on me today - but I'm not a bunny! I know they miss their bunnies who couldn't come to Peru, but geez!

What an odd day. Mommy took me out at noon like usual but she never let me run off leash because I snapped at my friend Chato and some other dog, but it was only because they were sniffing a little too long down there! Then Daddy walked me instead at 5 - what happened to Mommy? Oh well. I'm very tired from all the stuff I was thinking about doing today. This thinking stuff is tiring, it's so much easier to just do!
