Favorite Toy: She likes the stuffed toys, but she tears them apart. Rubber bones and balls are fun and are harder to eat!
Favorite Food: She does like chicken or hamburger pieces for training treats, but she enjoys her regular kibble too.
Favorite Walk: Around the block, or maybe somewhere new to explore.
Best Tricks: She can to dance on her back feet for up to about 10 seconds! She can also spin in circles on command.
Arrival Story: We doesn't know her original story, but at about a year old, she became pregnant at the shelter she was in. She was still a pup herself! From there, she was passed to a more loving shelter in someone's home. She had six healthy pups (although when she arrived she was a mess). Meanwhile, we were interested at another dog there, but Lola's temporary mom (in charge of the shelter) knew she was a better match! She left the remaining three pups when they were nine weeks old to go live at her forever home!
Bio: Hi! My name is Lola! I have been living at my new, permanent home since June 30th, and I am so happy to have settled down. I am relatively calm, but am always up for a game, and will run with you around the yard or house. I am a little shy when meeting new dogs, but I have made good friends in the past and hope to make more! I like to eat dirt , even though it drives my family crazy! I am told that it's hard to get a good picture of me, but I have some up. I guess it's hard to capture my rare essence on film. ;)
Finally Mommy logged me back on to Dogster! I guess sometimes things get busy, and she can't get on for a couple days, and then she gets out of the habit. But I won't let her do that anymore- I'm missing EVERYTHING!
Well, it's been a great summer for me.
At the beginning of the summer, a dog park opened near us! I'd never been to one, and me and Daddy went on the opening day. We went a bunch of times after that, too, but I can't go as much as I wish I could.
Also at the beginning of the summer, Mommy thought we were gonna get puppies from CCI, but that didn't work out in the end. Dang it! I have so much to pass on to the next generation.
In August, some family friends visited, and they brought a 7-or-so year old human kid with them. He's a little booger, but fun to play with!
Well, now both my big brothers are back at school, but it was fun for them to be home for so long!
I think I caught you up on everything- it feels so good to be back!
Hi everyone! My good bud Cowboy Valentine tagged me.
So I'll make five Valentine's Day wishes, then tag five more of my pals. The five of them will each do the same thing over again. Here goes!
(1) I wish every pup finds a warm place and a little treat this Valentine's Day.
(2) I wish for no pup to be lonely (especially me! heehee).
(3) I wish my humans would just let me get a little more of that coffee they leave out.
(4) I wish I had more real-life pup pals. =)
(5) I wish all my pals (and everyone else too) a very happy Valentine's Day!
And, -drumroll- here's who gets a little Lola tag:
-1- My Basenji boy, Talker.
-2- Good old, Jack.
-3- Cute little Kuki!
-4- My new friend Lucky.
-5- Pi for giving us Chase and to welcome him home (even though he's been here a while)!
Mommy and Daddy brought me to a howliday pawty for doggies on Saturday! It was so much fun. First we got our pictures taken by a professional photographer (I stayed real still and made my pawrents proud). More and more doggies came and I met lots of new pups. There was an Italian Greyhound who was really similar to me, Mommy said it was me in a different body! Then we had a Yankee Gift Swap. I'm not really sure what the idea behind that was- all the humans racing around and grabbing stuff from each other- but I ended up with two rawhide candy canes and a stuffed lobster to take home. Oh boy, fine eating. =) Then my Mommy won the raffle basket!! It was so big! 3 new collars, 2 new leashes, 16 new toys, 2 big bags of treats, 1 little tin of 'pupperoni', 2 photo frames, 1 calendar, 1 mug, 2 bandanas, and more. Woah. I sure was excited all day.
I slept really soundly all night (and most of the afternoon). Maybe I'll become a party pup. Maybe not. =)
