Arrival Story:
Mom had wanted a dog for a long time and had begged dad for one for years. After three years, dad called her and told her to go down to the humane society and look at a specific kennel. He had picked me out as a surprise! Of course, he had no idea I'd get so big at the time.

Bio:
When I first got home, I was three months and 26 pounds. The humane society estimated I'd be around 45 pounds full-grown, but I knew better! I just turned a year old, and mom doesn't even want to know how much I weigh, but she thinks at least 70 pounds. My parents are both papered hunting dogs (one a Mountain Cur, the other a Catahoula) that live on a huge farm in the area. I was given up because the litter was too large for the owners to take care of.

My Diary


It's been a while!

Well, it's been a while, but I'm a year old now! I will have been living with mom and dad for a year in May. I can't believe how time flies - or how big I've gotten. I weigh about 70 pounds (maybe more) and my shouldar is up to my mom's thigh. My dad always calls me a "horse" but that's silly because I'm a dog.

I go to daycare on Wednesdays, but I have to go in the timeout room when closing time comes around until mom picks me up, because I love it there so much I try to keep the other dogs from leaving!

I experienced my first snow this winter and can I just say, I love the stuff! I love to go jump around the backyard and catch the snowballs mom throws for me. I always come in covered in snow and cold, but ready to go back out five minutes later. Mom tried to get me some boots so my feet would stay warm, but I kept kicking them off. I don't need boots!

I also love to sneak up on the couches where I'm technically not allowed. My favorite thing to do is to steal mom's space when she gets up. Then I pretend like I'm sleeping in hopes she'll let me stay there. But she never does.

My aunt Kimber watches me when my mom and dad go out of town, and I love her almost as much as mom. She lets me sleep in the guest bed with her...or actually, that's MY bed, so I guess I'm the one letting HER sleep with ME! I like that because I don't get to sleep in mom and dad's new bed.

I can't wait for summer when I can start going to the dog park again!

 

Two Rivers, Take Two

My mom's cousin Samar said she thinks it's silly the way I write these diary entries and not my mom, but it's MY page and it took me a long time to learn to type and spell!

I went to Two Rivers again Sunday with mom and her whole family. Her parents brought their grumpy old dog Shiloh and I kept trying to play with her but she would have none of it.

I swam in the river a bit but it was kind of rainy and cold. In fact the entire picnic was kind of rainy and cold but it was still fun. I got to eat some hot dogs and play with everyone there. Samar took me on a great walk where I saw some horese and really didn't know what to think of them. Samar was out of town most of the summer so it was fun to see her again.

After the picnic we wen't to mom's grandma's house for cake and ice cream (it's mom's birthday on Thursday). That was pretty fun, I love running up and down the stairs to the attic over and over. And everyone let me lick their plates clean, too...I love ice cream!

 

Mom's back!

Well, mom came back from Toronto, and I was really glad to see her...even if she didn't bring me anything! I was a little sad to leave the sitter's because there were a lot of other dogs there for me to play with, but BOY was I glad to get to sleep on a bed again! I made myself comfortable right away and stretched out as much as I could...I don't know why Mom was grumbling at me, I left her at least a foot of space. Mom keeps rubbing my ears and saying how much she missed me...well, DUH. I am the best dog ever, of course she would!
