Quick Bio:

July 27th 2003

Mom coming home from work. Rolling in the grass.

Intact male dogs. Squirrels in the trees where he can't get to them. Mail carriers. The black dog across the street.

Favorite Toy:
Anything squishy-squeaky. The tennis ball that the lawn mower mangled.

Favorite Food:
Bones! Meat! Oh, and cat food (3 lbs in one sitting, ugh).

Favorite Walk:
Westcrest Park... on his own. Oops.

Best Tricks:
Hi-five, hang-ten, sit up, stand, wait. The difference between "box" (his crate) and "bed" (his spot next to mom's bed).

Arrival Story:
My parents got him from someone who decided she'd rather have a Saint Bernard, then my mom decided he needed 6 sheep and 6 acres! I took him in, and even though I was a Great Dane person, I fell in love with the Leo the Aussie! He is a Las Rocosas Aussie.

Leo is a "red merle" Aussie with one blue eye and one yellow eye. He has been raw-fed since he was 4 months old (mmm, chicken!), and is titred for resistance to common things we usually vaccinate for, in order to determine whether he REALLY needs the vac. I've had 2 dogs in the past have bad, permanent reactions to vaccines, so try to avoid them whenever possible.

Um, I think there's something missing... ahem... down *there.* Two "somethings," to be exact.

[Mom's edit: I really hope he doesn't figure it out. He might not like me so much afterwards. Look Leo, a squirrel!]


Mom, that wasn't funny.

Note to self: Do not pee on trees with lights on them. It hurts. Mom laughed at me.

(Mom's edit: Yes, I did laugh. I mean, c'mon... just IMAGINE the hilarity of the lights shorting out, the tree going dark, the traffic at the stoplight watching the whole thing, Leo yelping and running. I did show due concern once I'd regained my composure, of course. Especially after he poo'd blood later, then we got to go to the emergency vet for a checkup. The laugh was NOT worth $147. Parvo... not. Yeesh. I coulda told you that for free.)

Darn it. Thwarted again.

Yesterday was my birthday, and what does mom get me? A TALLER FENCE! Geez. Just 'cuz I jumped over it in the morning and whizzed in the neighbor's yard. It's not like I GO anywhere... I just ignore her when there's more interesting stuff. I thought she was being cool when she called me over and told me to jump it... then BOING I bounced off this wire stuff at the top. Yah shoulda seen the look I gave her after THAT!

Well, I guess she kinda made it up to me with that new chewy thing. Took me a while to get the hang of it, but it sure was good. (Mom's edit: I was sure he was gonna hork it up he ate it so fast!) Thumbs (well, paws) up for Moo Tubes!

I'm off to find another way into the neighbor's yard... maybe I can get on top of that big dog house mom's building for me. (Mom's edit: it's really a shed, but somehow it's been nicknamed the "dog house.")
