Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

August 29th 2004

His Mama and Grandma; meeting new people; having his tummy rubbed, eating raw carrots, playing, riding in the car, laying in the sun

whole dog biscuits or treats - must be broken up!; dogs who don't get "permission" to walk on "his" turf; thunderstorms; the blender and the dust-buster

Favorite Toy:
A yellow tennis ball or his yellow Cooz

Favorite Food:
He loves baby carrots and Solid Gold lamb jerky! It's the only treat he swallows without chewing! [the jerky, not the carrots!]

Favorite Walk:
Around the neighborhood and in Chuck Camp Park; also loves walking fast along cement curbs!

Best Tricks:
Giving kisses on request; giving you his paw when asked (he's a "southpaw"); catching his tennis ball in his mouth (when bounced); shaking "Buster" on command

Arrival Story:
I fell in love with his little face and his playfulness at the pet store (he was 10 weeks old) . (This was before I knew better about possible problems with puppies from pet stores.) I had to wrap my brain around becoming a first-time dog owner! God led me to him, and vice versa. :-)

When trying to think of a name for my male doggie, at first I was too serious. I thought about "Ali" (for Muhammad Ali), then "Mandela" (for Nelson). Too much pressure on a cute l'il guy. Then, still thinking about strength, I thought of Oprah ... but since that's a female name, Harpo came to mind ... for her production company and her EMPIRE! :-)

Forums Motto:
He's a funny little dude!

Hi, everybody! Last week was a fun time ... My little sister and I had a birthday party on 8/25, since she turned one on 8/19, and I turned three on 8/29. Mommy decided to call it a "Lu-howl Barkday Pawty" and we invited our friends from our play groups. There were about 26 of us toy doggies there -- and we dressed up in flower leis, tropical shirts and hula outfits (the girls, of course!). We had a tasty doggie cake made with PB and bananas ... and we got a lot of presents from our nice friends. Mommy said it was fun, but not to get too used to it ... she said a party every year is a lot of work! But we get spoiled and treated special every day, anyway, so we're OK with that.:-) On my actual birthday, Mommy took Mimi and me to get our nails cut, then we went to the park before it got too hot outside. Later, I got presents from Mommy and Grandma (including a shirt that says "Mama's Boy" ... hey -- what does she mean by THAT??!!). I played with my new toys, and I also got to have some more of my birthday cake. Let's put it this way -- you'll pardon the expression ... my life doesn't suck ... LOL!


Wow ... a busy summer so far!

Man, I've been so busy with play dates and stuff, I haven't had time to blog! I hate when that happens ... LOL! Went to a fun 'people' BBQ a couple weeks ago, but we doggies had two swimming pools to romp in. That was fun, 'cause it was reeallllyyy hot that day. This weekend my sister, Mimi LaBelle, and I are going to a doggie fair with games, treats AND birthday cake, 'cause it's our friends' Misu and Marley's birthdays. YUM!


The holidays are here ... So much activity!

I'm still trying to figure out what this "Christmas" stuff is, but Mama took me to a party with my doggie friends and we exchanged presents! I got some fun stuff from Baxter in a red & white stocking that Mama's hiding from me until Christmas Day. :-)

Now yesterday, while I was out with my Grandma, my Mom brought home this new little white fuzzy thing. Don't know what she is, but she sure moves around a lot! I sniffed her and ran around with her a little bit, but I'm still not sure if I like her. Mom says she's a "Maltese" and she keeps calling her "Mimi."

I'll have to get back to you on how this whole deal goes ... If I decide I like her, maybe I'll let her stay. But she better get her own chewies, 'cause if she thinks she can eat mine, I'm not havin' it!
