Arrival Story: My mom picked Heidi out. When she went to the house where two litters of Shepherd puppies were a sea of fur came at her. She chose Heidi because she was darker and laid back.
Bio: Heidi is a very mild mannered dog. She knows basic commands and loves children. She carries around stuffed toys, we call them her 'babies'. She lays down and grooms them like they are a puppy. She is also an excellent guard dog. At night, if she hears a suspicious noise she lets out a bark that would make any burglar wet his pants.
One June 6th my mom took me to vet. I got some medicine that made me very sleepy. I saw my mom's face just before I went to sleep. Then suddenly I felt great. I haven't felt this good in years. Not one ache or pain. And I can run now, my back legs work just fine. I'm in the sun and the air is cool. In the wind I can smell flowers and happiness. There are other dogs here with me. We snap at the bees and chase bunnies. There is always fresh cold water to drink. I can eat whatever I want whenever I want, even Skittles and Starbursts. My favorite part has been helping take care of the puppies that are here. I keep them clean, make sure they have fat full bellies and don't let them wander too far off. I love it here. Thank you for bringing me here.
It's been 3 months since Loki came. I loved Loki the minute I saw him. I could tell we had a lot in common. We are both big dogs, mild mannered, loving and calm. Mom says he isn't the sharpest knife in drawer and she says the same thing about me so we have that in common too. He likes grooming babies (stuffed toys) just like I do. We lay down together a lot. I am glad he is here because I can relax more. He is big and scary looking. I used to have the job of looking scary - even though I am not - as a crime deterent feature but now I can sleep more because he now has that job. I'm old so I can retire.
Well, we moved to 'the country'. We live in a big house with a lot of land, fields, grass, and trees. It is lovely. We have a beautiful breeze all the time. I go for walks with the others in the fields but I stop to rest. I'm slowing down.
I am happy the bedroom is on the bottom floor. The stairs are steep. I haven't bothered going up there once, my hips couldn't take it. But I'm not in a lot of pain, it was just that stairs were getting rough.
My little sister, Temper, is about 3 now & I decided she should take over 'watch dog' for me. She is still new at it and barks at new comers whether they are good or not. She is also a little timid. She barks low & hides behind mom. She will get used to it as she works at it. Now I am free to lay down and relax all I want. :-)
