   Leave a bone for Griffen - Fur Angel (TGAN, LA)

DOG, buddy, griffy, griffy-poo, squirmy worm, catepillar (in chinese), fuzzy butt, fuzzy, silly butt

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-deaf -dog rescue

March 1st 1995

food.. food.. scratches.. being with his mom.. more food and more scratches.. daily walks, following his mom around the house, kissing and licking, finding comfy places to sleep, piles of cloth, laundry, giant pillows

when strangers go near my bed while I'm comfy on it, being picked up, having his paws touched, feeling enclosed

Favorite Toy:
tennis ball (only when i feel like it), or food.. :D

Favorite Food:
anything he can get his paws on, any cotton products (cotton balls, tissue, q-tips, etc), anything mom is eating, preferrably salt food

Favorite Walk:
around our neighborhood

Best Tricks:
stealing food off tables, particularly hot dogs, playing with his tennis ball, tossing it and catching it.

Arrival Story:
Adopted him from Furry Friends Rescue in the bay area. He was abandonded or lost when the Tri-City Animal Shelter picked him up. He was soaking wet, scared, and dirty. Furry Friends found him as he was on doggy death row at the shelter. A year later, I came upon him and adopted him.

Griffen has a very playful spirit and is very food oriented. Despite having been a stray for so long and lived a rough life, he's so loving. We bonded instantly, he follows me everywhere and never gets grumpy with me. When I adopted him, I didn't realize he was deaf, the rescue thought he was hard of hearing, but I can sneak around him all the time. He also has no teeth, due to the fact that they rotted out when he was a stray from lack of nutrition. He's also an older dog, but doesn't act his 11 years of age. He still thinks he's 4 until his old bones start to disagree with him. There are those who would say that I saved his life, but in reality, he helped save mine. I lost a lot of loved ones and was going through a rough time when he walked into my life. He's the best thing to happen to me in a long and I appreciate and love every bit of him. :) Favorite places to sleep include: Sheepskin rug, mom's bed, piles of laundry, down blankets, anything piled/soft/cushy :) Favorite ways to hug: I like to wedge or butt my head into mom somehow and let her scratch all around my neck and if I can sneak in a lot of licks that's good too.

Tag for Blue - Shared with Me By Dreamy

A friend of mine is missing. His name is Blue - officially Yukonwind's Doobie Blues.

I still believe that he is alive and I still believe that he will be found. I have to believe... what would I do if I were missing? Would my humans look for me... would they still look for me after 2 months? after 6? Would other people help them or would they be all alone too? Would someone find me and try to make me theirs? Would I wonder searching for food and shelter? I'd be scared... this I know

Blue is alive, I feel it, but he's scared. He wants to come home and he wonders if anyone cares... if anyone is looking for him.

My humans live many miles away. They have never met Blue or Blue's humans but they are trying in any way to help... help spread the word, help find blue.

So... why help strangers, why help find a dog you don't know?
For many reasons, but mostly because they know that this could just as easily be me. How helpless would any of us pups, kitties or humans feel? Who else could we turn to who would truly understand? We do this because we put ourselves in the shoes of Blue and Blue's humans and because we've come to know that even as strangers, we'd be there for each other...

We do it for our own pack. We do it for the friends we've made here - we do it because we know if any one of us is in need, we will be there for each other.

We do it because Blue needs us... and we all have something to offer, we can all help and add to a sum that is so much bigger than just one.

Please help us - please post this in your diary. Please click here to go to and help us get Blue home!! and share it with your friends, ask your humans to share it with there friends. Please pay this forward - we would do the same for you.

Blue, a black and white Siberian Husky (4 year old male, brown eyes, microchipped) has been missing since May 8, 2007 from Brighton, MI.

The gate was left open
one bright sunny day
So I thought I would go,
explore, run, and play.

Seeing new things,
this is such fun!
But where do I go,
now that I’m done?

Was it back this way,
or maybe that
Where is my home?
I want to go back.

I have on my collar,
it’s red, white and blue
But, I don’t have my tags
to give someone a clue.

A man comes and gets me,
puts me in his truck
He’s taking me home,
Oh, what luck!

Wait a minute,
this isn’t my home
I’m stuck in a cage,
scared and alone.

People come see me,
so I wag my tail
I love the attention
I get in this jail.

The food is okay,
and the bed is too
But I really miss home,
yet what can I do?

I miss my yard,
my bed, and my ball
But, I miss my master
the most of all.

Where is my master?
It must have been weeks
I know he will come.
He really loves me.

Then someone takes me
down a long hall
I’m confused and uncertain,
I stare at the wall.

I feel a prick,
things start to go dark
I think of my master
and me in the park.

I’m going to sleep now
with him on my mind
Little do I know,
my fate has been signed.

I pray when I wake,
he will be there
Holding me close,
stroking my hair.

I’m sorry I strayed,
who knew the cost?
But it doesn’t have to happen
when dogs get lost.

Lisa Williams

I have been tagged by the wonderful Cherry - Forever Loved and that sassy Sassy! It sounds like fun so we're off to tag. Below are the rules of the game:

(Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

1. I love to eat, my motto was taste first, then if it wasn't edible, oh well.
2. I could only lick out of the left side of my mouth. :P
3. I looooooove and would search out the softest spot.. pillows, laundry, blankets.. etc
4. I won first place in the Skeeterspal contest by popular vote and 5th place by judges vote :D
5. I didn't like being a lap dog, I was content to sit with mom
6. I would try to get into the kleenex, or toilet paper whenever at all possible.
7. I would get grumpy at bbq's if no one gave me scraps.

And the pups I choose to tag are:
1 Miss Dixie Monroe
6.Eddie Essig

Dear mommy,

I see you when your sad and I know you miss me. I know how much you ache to hug me again and rub my fluffy ears and bury your face in my fur. But I'm okay mommy. I'm happy and healthy and running around up here having fun. There are cheeseburgers to eat and fries too! Plus all the BBQ sauce I want! Cherry's watching out for me, making sure I don't get into trouble, Paris too. I was here to welcome Clover and make lots of new friends! Don't worry about me mommy, I didn't have time to be scared when I got up here, Bandit and Haley and Ariel were all here to welcome me and Ziggy and Zadie too!

I know you miss me with all your heart but one day we will be together again. Just know that when you feel that fuzzy feeling in your heart or a soft breeze, that's me coming to hug you.

I love you with all my heart!
