You are nearly 9 years old Mr. Man. You are slower but still have a bright expression behind some tired old eyes. You sleep a little more now and limp sometimes but I hope you happy. We all love you so much and are so grateful to have you. - Love Dad.

Christmas 2012 was a great time. Chopper and Ivy went to downtown St. Charles, Missouri and sat in front of the coffee shop to enjoy the weather ( before it turned cold). Lots of people stopped by to chat, Wish us Merry Christmas, and Give lots of love to both pups.. Christmas day was cold and a fire kept us all warm until we all collapsed to watch an old christmas movie 'The Bishops Wife'...

Well, Mom and Dad took me to the annual Bully Bash in st. Charles, Missouri. It is a great event where all kinds of dogs come to meet up.. My Pit bull friends all come there and we have a great time. We dive for Tennis Balls, jump for treats, and have lots of fun..My buddy Victor also got his Therapy Dog Certification... I was so proud of him, that afterwards I went up and gave him a big Chopper lick on the face! Anyhoo, I ended up getting my picture taken at Bully Bash and the photographer said I was a 'handsome' looking boy.......

Choppy got the call Friday nite. Canine CookiesnCreme had An entry float in the 4th of July Parade and they needed dogs to walk with the float....Say no more...With beads, beach balls, and dog bones in hand---Daddy and Choppy walked the 4 mile parade route and had a blast. The float WON for best crowd appeal..Towards the end, Daddy was pouring water over Choppy to keep him coolled off. Every time the parade hit a shady spot, everyone laid down for a quick break....Choppy even got to ride on the float for a short while.....How exciting.....

Well, Spring is finally here. Mom & Dad took me to the annual Bully Bash where some of my Pit bull buddies got together to have a meet up.....One of my buddies actually passed his CGC ( Canine Good Citizenship) test and got a medal.... Daddy won a contest to guess the correct Dog Breed and won us a new Drinking bowl and some play toys... Good Dad! Mommy took pictures of me and the River City Rascal mascot. I got to greet a whole bunch of dogs. Some had their own t-shirts and some had Cardinal shirts and hats on. Dad put a yellow scarf around my neck for the event. Mom----how about a shirt or a hat next time? Bark in the Park is coming up...Can't wait for that-over 2000 dogs will be there.
Signing off for now---Choppy.

Summer is finally ending. Dad takes me for my morning walks very early since it is so hot and Mom takes me late at night.... Sometimes I have to take a break. We are practicing for the Dog Walk coming up givenby our local Humane Society. Aunt Bonnie brought over a playmate for me--Victor. Victor is a rescue and he has had a rough time. Someone broke his legs and he had to have surgery. I am working hard to try to show him that it is okay for us big dogs to play ball, chase the ball, and play rough. We played for several hours. I was sorry to see him go.. His mom said he slept all nite!

Hot off the presses. Chopper and Ivy won most photogenic in the St. Louie tails Magazine contest for April 2007. The "Sleeping in the Sun" picture was a winner!!!!!!! Chopper (Bubby for short) and Ivy love the sunbeams that flow in our bedroom window in the morning. They actually fight over the sun---but have jointly decided to now just share the sun...... What a pair!


One Year Today

One year ago today Chopper joined us. It hasn't been an easy year in many respects. Chopper had a lot of allergies and illnes and has required a lot of care. He is still a daily medical and (medical bill) challenge but he is much healthier than he was. His destructive behavior has subsided some and he does much better now when left "alone". We lost Carol's mom in August 2006 and added Ivy to our family. I think that's helped him some, having a little buddy. He is very attached to Ivy. When we first got him he followed me to every room every time I moved and wouldn't go outside unless someone went with him. He has gained confidence and now often spends time in another room and can even manage to lay still when I leave a room. So his improvement has been remarkable. He is about to endure his next challenge as I get ready to return to "going" to work. We expect that he will rise to this challenge as he has the other challenges this past year. "Welcome home boy."

Mommy & Daddy took me & Ivy to Meet Santa Claus. Since I have been such a good boy this year, I had my list all ready for Santa. Let's see: Booda Bone, Tuffy Toy Rumba Ring, Tennis Balls, Tuffy Toy Fish, and treats ( of course!). My little sister has also been good, but she kept trying to pull Santa's Beard off of his face.....The people at Petsmart said we were cute and we just kept posing for them...Oh well, I can't wait for Santa to visit our house. The Tree is up and our Stockings are hung. Mom got me an extra big stocking!
