Best Tricks: Sitting when I want to, barking at nothing, and rolling over to have my belly rubbed
Arrival Story: I was picked up by the animal shelter a few years ago. Apparently they don't like it when dogs run aimlessly - they must not have known that I am a free spirit and love to wander. Anyway, after being in the shelter for a few MONTHS, I was featured on a local t.v. show. I was very important! Who knew that I would become so popular? I guess there were a lot of people who called about me that day, but fortunately my mommy was the first one to come see me. We played outside together - she kept throwing this green bouncy thing and telling me to go "fetch", hmmm, I still have no idea what that means. So, in order to test her and make sure she was a true dog person, I rolled over and waited for her to make her move. Well, let me tell you, I have never had such a good belly run in my life! Mommy took me home that day, we've been inseperable since.
Bio: I had been an only dog for about a year when my Uncle's dog (Angel)came to stay with us for a few months. She was twice my size, but I didn't care! We became best buddies. After she left, I was heart broken. I thought if I stared at the front door, long enough, Mommy would get the idea and go get Angel back. No luck. So, after about a month of my funk, Mommy decided I needed a sister. Enter, Izzy. She is such fun! Izzy has taught me all kinds of tricks like eating trash, digging in the yard, and barking at her invisible friends. I love Izzy, although it wouldn't kill her to share her food with me once in awhile.
I wanted to send a huge, huge angel hug out to all of my great pals for being so sweet and thinking of me on my birthday. All of us angel pups are partying like the rock stars we are (Cookie is on drums). Lots of food and cake and drinks that make us burp. Good times, all thanks to my pals.
Before I go to bed, I have to make sure I look down on my mommy and tell her to stop her snifflin' and have some cake for me.
Pups! Pups! Pups! I feel the need to apologize for being so lacksidaizical (errr...) about my diary entries. I have been super duper busy and having too much fun here at the Bridge to let you all know I have been thinking of all of you and thanking you for your friendship.
My birthday was faboo! Lots and lots of parties, bones, stories and good times! I appreciate all of your happy birthday wishes, and am sorry for waiting so long to say thanks.
My Bridge Crossing Anniversary was last week (Thanksgiving...). Again, lots and lots of fun times for all of us angels! Mommy was sad though. She was all boo-hooing about me, and generally being silly. The leaves started to fall off the trees in Texas, so that made Mommy think of me more than usual. I love, love, love running through the piles of leaves... it tickles my belly! Try it sometime :) So, when Mommy was outside and saw the leaves piling up - you guessed it - boo hoo city!
My friend Louie told me that it's okay to tell me Mommy to quit her cryin'! I'm happy! I've got friends! No tears Momma! Eventually she calmed down, although I think that had more to do with the gin and tonic she had with dinner.
Anywag, thanks again to all my pals for all the happy thoughts and well-wishes!
since I've instructed my minions...er, I mean Pup Pals to do something. So, I thought it was time to ask/tell/instruct you pups to go check out Willie and his sister Luna(sorry - too lazy to Link to Luna's page)! Luna just arrived at her furever home on Sunday after her Poppa made the long journey to pick her up!
