Vacumes, loud voices, dad's sneezes.
A squeeky hamburger. And my long lost friend, Pinky.
Canidae with some egg, carrots and penut butter.
I picked him up at a rescue down in Durham, they said he was about to be put down at the pound, he had been in a cage all his life it was so sad! He had scabs on his elbos and had NO idea what a toy was. He was ther most mellow, sad looking dog you've ever seen! I wasn't sure about him, I mean aren't border collies supposed o be energetic? This was supposed to be my new agility dog? The dog who didn't even know what a toy was? But I took the plunge nd took him home. He was so calm and reserved, but I could tell there were flames behind his eyes. He looked pretty malnurished but he wasn't starving.
Ranger was shut in a crate all of his life, he had huge scabs under his elbos and cuts deep under his coat. I suspect he was neglected and probably he was minorly abused. His scabs have healed now and he enjoys a heavenly life of agility, the park and weekly hikes.
Favorite Color: Baby blue and soft pink.

2008 is over and the new year has begun! This year for me was very,very stressful! Our lives were turned upside down when our house was burned down by the Humboldt fire. I thought my tail would never wag again! It is now January and (thankfully) we have been able to rebuild our home and our lives (to some degree). It is not complete but we now are in the dangerous stage of painting the new house. I have been moved to a new rental house on the other side of town and am currently rebuilding my confidence. I will speak of my details of the fire in a later journal.
My dear friend, Sneakers disappeared in March and we all miss him deeply. he was a sweet and very outgoing cat and my mom especially grieves for him every day. She clings onto the idea that he is still alive. We can only pray and hope that he will return to us. We must not give up hope and believe that he was caught by coyote or perished in a fight.
A new family member was added in the midst of all this, Millie Vanillie our sweetheart part quarter horse part arabian was a wonderful and welcome addition to our pack. Grandma takes me out riding with her. I get to run ahead and sniff, pee and do my normal doggie activities while she and Millie clop along.
For my new years resolutions I plan to...
1. Get out more
2. Mark my territory twice as fast as before/sniff more vigorously.
3. Try.....TRY not to pee on my toys (Mom has been very persistent in breaking me of this habit.
4. Socialize more... I have been getting a little "nippy" says Mom (whatever!)
5. PLAY ON MY NEW AGILITY EQUIPMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mom and I got a fire-engine -red tunnel, three jumps, a tire and a table for Christmas!
6. BE A DOG AND MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WOOHOO!
Here's to a fun new year! I deserve to get out and play as never before! 2009 will be a year of celebration of everyday things and sights plus river rafting, backpacking and camping trips.

My closest friend in the world died last Friday. I can't believe it's been almost a week. My sister Rocky was the sweetest little dog in the whole wide world. Mom hasen't had the heart to write anything about it on Dogster till now. It was just too hard. We always did verything together and with our Mommy. Some times over the summer momma would take us up to visit our great aunt in Montana and we would go on long hikes through the forest. Rocky would see something and bolt, I would follow right behind. Other times we would go camping together, barking at any stranger who got too close to mom, growling at the evil squirrels, begging the mailman for bisquits, patrolling the house from scary monsters. We would go for power walks together, thrumming down our street. We would go swimming, meeting our mom half way in the lake. We would chase the water that came from the hose, attacking it fiercly(Rocky always loved that one!) She and I would also try and balance balloons. At least she would, I'de mostly just pop 'em. Mom always felt like she and Rocky were an indestructable team. They we're always together getting into to trouble and out to fight off anything. They had eachothers backs. They were a great team. We're going to miss her so much. We love her so. She was such a brave and untouchable little thing. Like a little warrior, she would stand by mom's side.
One thing is for sure, I believe that we will never part. Even though my little girls bodily form is gone, I believe somewhere somehow, I will get to see her again. I don't care how long or hard I have to work but I know I will see her again. Wether it's in heaven at The Rainbow Bridge or in another life. Whatever's in store for me when I leave this world, I know I will find her again. One of my fondest memories of her is when I took her out to our local lake. A whole bunch of ducks live there and Rocky instantly perked up. I had been reading my book on the shore when I noticed she was missing. I panicked and looked around fervently. I saw a black shape flowing effortlessly on the water. I smiled and saw she had located a particular group of ducks. They were in a little circle, all beginning to quak with dissaproving voices. Rocky glided out to them and began circling. She didn't want to hurt them, just herd them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She just guided them around until she got too tired of swimming and came ashore. She loved swimming.
Another special memory I have is when I first braught my kitten home. My kitten was named Sneakers and I still have him today. I had braught him home and set him in a little box, Sneakers had been starving when I rescued him and had been just lying motionlessly in the box. Rocky began wagging her tail in big long circles and pricked her ears up. She was very interested in the box and would nodge it. I would scold her, I was very afraid that Rocky might hurt the kitten or bite it. This went on for about a week. When Sneakers had grown a little more strong I held him protectivley in my hands and showed Rocky. Rocky shivered and began to lick the kitten tenderly. She groomed it and soon they became friends.Weeks later, you could find them playing in our living room. The two would spend hours romping around. Rocky would pick him up in her mouth, his whole body engulfed in her gentle jaws. He would bat her nose with sheathed claws and she would nuzzle and roll him over. Untill her passing they would almost everynight groom eachother. He has noticed her dissapierance. He sometimes meows at night and looks around like he's searching for her. I will miss her. Every day I go up to her grave and lay a flower on it. I've been pretty vigilant on keeping her garve tidy and pretty. I've planted lavendar colored flowers all along. That was her favorite color. It's my way of contributing a last thanks. She blessed me with her life. She has taught me so many things and I deeply appreciate that. I only wish there was some way I could tell her how much I love her and how thankful I am to her for being there for me. She will always be in my heart and I refuse to believe she is gone forever. I will see her again somwhere. That much I am sure of.
