   Leave a bone for Kingsley

King, Pooper, Attention Whore, Divo

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-pound dog

Playing with his little sister, ATTENTION, showing off his big fluffy tail, running, playing (especially with other dogs), car rides

The four-hour ritual that is known as bath time, being ignored, sometimes his little sister

Favorite Toy:
Anything his little sister has, or just his little sister in general. We have a nice case of sibling rivalry going on in our house.

Favorite Food:
Pig's hearts and ice, but he has to make do with NutroMax on a daily basis

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere he can get off the leash and run free

Best Tricks:
Shaking...if allowed, he'll do this all day!! Also, he LOVES alcohol, so if anyone leaves a drink unattended, he will knock it over and lick up all that he can. He's also really good at taking all the toys out of the box and scattering them all over.

Arrival Story:
I was working for a not-nice lady, and she decided she wanted a dog. So I went to the shelter and found Kingsley. He was such a sweet dog I couldn't see how she wouldn't like him. It turns out, she wanted a dog who could open her door, get her newspaper, and all sorts of other little chores/tricks. Kingsley, even though he was seven months old, had never had any training whatsoever, so he obviously couldn't do any of that stuff, so she hated him. She decided that the best thing would be to just let him loose. So what started out as me just keeping him for a couple days until I could return him to the shelter ended up being me keeping him forever. I just couldn't give him up!

Kingsley LOVES to play. Before we got him, he didn't have much contact with other dogs, so he doesn't really know how to play, and definitely doesn't know when to quit playing. He went to day care when we lived in Kansas and he LOVED it. His favorite playmates were Ryder, a 100+ pound Doberman, and Angel, a boxer. They were all very high-energy, high activity level dogs and got along GREAT. He's the sweetest dog and would never intentionally hurt a fly. He absolutely loves visiting my mom's house, because he and my 2-year-old sister are best buddies. Oh, and even though he's all white and loves to prance and show off his stuff, he also LOVES to get dirty. When it rains, instead of getting on the porch with his little sister, he runs out in the yard and finds the one muddy patch and lays in it.

Kingsley's Days

Today I looked up Kingsley and Laika's horoscopes. They fit perfectly...except that they were switched. Kingsley's a Taurus (like me!) and Laika is a Sagittarius. Kingsley's horoscope was this:

Taurus dogs have an easygoing nature and love food.

Your Taurus dog is a huge softie. He is loving and cuddly. Everybody adores his kind nature.
Your Taurus dog is a quiet, loyal, and faithful companion. He does not enjoy exercise, rush and activity. But, he loves lounging around, or a nap at his cozy bed.
Pampering and patting your Taurus dog is mandatory!

Taurus dogs are patient and reliable, special with kids. They want a regular daily routine and feel most comfortable in a secure, peaceful home.

Although unlikely to fight, if sufficiently provoked they never give up. Try not to let this happen.

Your Taurus dog adores food. Therefore, avoid over-feeding him.
Finally, try to understand him; he is not stubborn - he is just lazy!

How funny! First of all, I have to beg Kingsley to take a time-out from playing to eat his food. He doesn't like food at all! Kingsley, quiet? HA! He loves to talk! That, and he makes noise 24/7 knocking stuff over! Lounging around? Are you kidding?! He does take his afternoon nap in his chair, but I have a feeling that's just because Laika takes her nap then and he doesn't have anyone to play with. He is very great with kids, but he does NOT want a peaceful home! He craves action! And the very thought of Kingsley fighting cracks me up. Even when other dogs go after him, he just thinks they're playing so he loves it. He's just our "special" child! And the last part about him being lazy...oh, that's just too funny!!! However, that entire entry is PERFECT for Laika. Absolutely perfect!!! Just like her entry is PERFECT for Kingsley! Here's hers:

November 23 to December 21

Sagittarius dogs are explorers and hunters.

Your Sagittarius dog will make you smile, whenever you are sad. His amusing character will enlighten your day. He is active, trustworthy, and reliable.

Your dog is happy by nature, loves to play and jump around in the field. He is an outdoor dog that needs plenty of exercise and a lot space to roam off leash! This bundle of energy wants to explore the surroundings, catch rats, or chase birds. A farm would be the perfect environment for him. If you live in a city, provide him plenty of time in the park.

Always take your Sagittarius dog with you on journeys. This ideal travel companion will enhance your trip.

Explorers? Laika hates to leave our side! Kingsley, on the other hand, would love nothing more than to explore! Laika does make me smile whenever I am sad, and she is very trustworthy and reliable, but active...not so much. I have a feeling if Kingsley wasn't around her days would be spend in the chair sleeping. She is most definitely NOT an outdoor dog. She likes to go outside, but she only likes it for ten or so minutes at a time. Then she wants to come inside and flop on the A/C vent. She didn't really like the farm. All the different animals scared her. Kingsley, on the other hand, was born to be a farm dog. Sometimes I feel like we're depriving him by keeping him here. And the only thing Laika likes about walks is showing off to the other neighborhood dogs. I can just hear Cartman saying "Respect my authority!" everytime she sees a dog.

Oh well. At least I got a good laugh out of the horoscopes!!!
