Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:

March 12th 2004

I love to play with my brother, Orson, travel all over the country, visit my granny, and play with all of my toys! I love Nancy & Carter the most, though :)

Why do they keep telling me "no" when I bark my head off when my brother is getting attention and not me?

Favorite Toy:
When I was little, it was my teddy Bear, dental nylabone, and my sock monkey! Then it was my jack! I especially liked to squeak it when frustrated! Now it's my air dog and all other tennis balls and that weird little sneaker thing!

Favorite Food:
GREENIES!!!!!!!! but they won't give them to me any more. But I still get lots of yummy, natural treats!

Favorite Walk:
I love running through the yard at top whippet puppy speed, and also going to the doggie bakery in Santa Barbara!

Best Tricks:
I can make distinctions between my airdog, my pink ball, and my yellow ball!

Arrival Story:
I came home to my new family on 9 May 2004! I was born in Ebro, Florida, on March 12th, 2004, and was the cutest of my litter of 7 (aren't I a modest girl?)

By the age of 3 and half months, I had traveled to eight states on a cross-country trip with my mommy and daddy and brother! Then, when I was just five months old, I survived Hurricane Charley as the eye passed directly over my house. In October 2004 I passed my puppy kindergarten class, and in Dec '04 I was the pet smart dog of the day! I'm two years old now, and I continue to travel the country, chase lots of squirrels and lizards, and cuddle under the blankets! Watch out, world! I am invincible!!!

Forums Motto:
Get those squirrels out of my yard!

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Hapy 11th birthday to me!

Today is my 11th birthday! Mommy took me to get a pedicure at Petco, and then I got to enjoy a Puppuccino at Starbucks! We also took a walk, and I ate some corned beef! :D I'm spoiled.

I deserve it, though. I lost my beloved brother, Orson, back in August, and it's been really hard on me. Mommy and Daddy love me and give me lots of attention, but that can't make up for my brother. He and I were together basically 24/7 every single day for over 10 years. I miss him so much. He got sick and was very brave until the end.

I still love to chew my bones and play with my kong, but I'm slowing down. I don't run my laps like I used to, but I still love to cuddle! Happy birthday to me


Today is my 9th birthday!

Hi everyone! Today is my 8th birthday! I can't believe it, and neither can my mommy! :) It seems like only yesterday that I was born. Mommy was on the phone with my breeder while my litter was emerging to the world, and just a few months later, I was already on my first roadtrip! I lived in Florida until we all relocated to Texas, in 2006. I still live here in a cute college town. Right now, spring is springing, and I'm having a lot of fun running laps in the yard and enjoying the new grass! Happy day to all of you! Thank you for your Dogster wishes! :)
