February 1st 1997
FOOD, cuddling, belly rubs, compliments, stealing pillows, attention, riding in the car, licking the cats
Being alone, being reprimanded, breed discrimination (esp. when people are scared of her)
Any kind of bone!
Anything! (though vegetables and fruit are at the bottom of the list)
In our neighborhood, on the beach
Sitting, shaking hands, rolling over and pirouettes
Kayachka originally belonged to a friend of mine who could no longer keep her. My own dog had just died and so they gave Kayachka to me. I've had her since she was 5 months old....
Long Live the Queen!

Wow, it's been such a long time since I last wrote....life has been busy, I have a new brother (a cat, but oh well....mom says once we move we can get another dog! Yippee!!), my friend Paula was adopted (the first attempt failed, but she's in a really great home now!), I'm taking an advanced obedience class and learning to do agility, and participated in three charity walks this fall....well, in short, I'm a regular social butterfly! Not bad for an 11.5 year old pit bull, eh? I also went o the vet last week for my 'senior' (how embarrassing!) health exam, and came out with a clean bill of health!
Tomorrow mum and I are doing the Bully Walk (to raise awareness about pit bulls and combat dog fighting) in Richmond!
Lots of Bully Love,

Queen of my heart, Guardian of my soul, Protector of my dreams-
Is there any proper way to describe the love I have for you?
I fear my words will forever fall short.
I love you as no one has ever loved before;
I love you because you lick my tears each time they fall;
I love you because you jump with joy every time I come home,
And look at me with sad, bewildered eyes each time I leave;
I love you because you are forever sorry for the littlest infraction,
Yet immeasurably happy just to receive a kind word, praise, or a BONE!;
I love you because you are gentle, kind, loyal, and affectionate,
And never ridicule my dreams, criticize my faults, or belittle my worth;
I love you because your eyes forever scream encouragement and support;
I love you because sometimes it seems nobody else does,
And because you love me as no one else has or ever will.
In all my life I had but one true friend-
My loyal, loving, and eternally beloved, Kaya,
The best creature that ever shall live.
Because these words will never be enough, I provide here part of Lord Byron's poem to his own dog:
"The poor dog, in life the firmest friend,
The first to welcome, foremost to defend,
Unhonored falls, unnoticed all his worth,
Denied in heaven the soul he held on earth.
While man hopes to be forgiven,
And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven.
Oh man! thou feeble tenant of an hour,
Who knows thee well must quit thee with disgust,
Thy love is lust, thy friendship all a cheat,
Thy smiles hypocrisy, thy words deceit!
By nature vile, ennoble but by name,
Each kindred brute might bid thee blush for shame."

I have a new adventure to write about! A couple weeks ago my family took me canoeing. It was my first time on the water in a long time and my very first time on the river! (For the first 7 years of my life we lived near the beach, so I've been in the ocean many times).
Honestly, I don't think I liked it very much. We canoed for 6 hours and by the time it was all over I was just exhausted. While I liked all the attention- there were many other canoers but I was the only dog there and all the people thought I was really cute- I didn't like that everybody accused me of not doing any work! Just because I sat in the middle and let my parents do all the paddling. There were some interesting moments, however, like when we saw all these cows in the river- there were quite a lot lof them, and some goats too, and they were all so oblivious to everything! I had never seen a farm animal before but I did know that they make really good dinner meat, so I was all excited about catching one! But, alas, my parents put a stop to that! The really good part was when we got out of the canoe and had a BBQ on the riverbank. I just love BBQs!! It felt so good to be off a leash that I was running around like a maniac and nearly put my tail in the fire! When it came time to eat my parents gave me my own bone so I wouldn't bother them, but I was so excited that I buried it somewhere and couldn't find it again:(
Then we had to get back in the canoe:( Toward the end of the trip my mom went swimming and I got really worried that she was leaving me and that those cows might get her, so I jumped (alright, really I fell) into the river to save her! But I forgot that I am not superdog and that swimming is one of the few talents I don't have.....Mom was laughing because my paws kept flapping in the air and I couldn't figure out how to do the doggy-paddle. She said I looked like I was drowning! Well, thanks to her help, I got right back in that canoe and stayed in it until we were done. One of my first siblings was a labrador and she just loved the water- would stay in it for hours and could swim for miles! Not me, I'm a terrier- I love the ground and the comforts of home! After that we went home and I slept for hours. I may look muscular and athletic but really I prefer to stay home and cuddle. I wish my parents would realize that. Last year they took me hiking- after 5 hours of walking, I couldn't move for days! When will they learn?
