Arrival Story: My first female shepard "Tori" crossed the rainbow bridge and my heart was broken...I couldn't sleep, eat or function for quite a while. She was my very BEST FRIEND. I knew that life went on, but something was sooo missing. I slept with her collar, and just about lost my mnd. So Tori (I know in my heart) sent me Nicki. I love this dog so much. She has become my everything. Thank you Tori, you are forever by my side..
Bio: Nicki has been such a challenge since the day I brought her home!! She is full of life and lots of love. Some say she isn't the brightest(she tends to run head first into things) but I know how smart she really is. I think the breeder was in it for the money, b/c when I picked her up, she was FULL of fleas & worms, and smelled like she was sleeping where the puppies were doing their business. I should have reported them, but I didn't. I was just glad to have saved my baby from staying at that HORRIBLE place one more minute!! She is the absolute joy of my life (okay she is my life!!) and I have spoiled her to the point of no return!! I don't care, after all, isn't that what we are suppose to do!!! As you can see in the pic, she is definitely MY lap dog!! Nicki is perfect from head to toe, she can do anything, and is very smart. We share everything, including the lounge chair that definitely has become for her and her use only!! I can't imagine falling asleep or waking up and not seeing those beautiful eyes staring right at me.

Mommy was looking on the computer at stuff and well, she found another really sad video. After me and Thunder gave her some paws and licks we're gonna take HER on a walk b/c it's a beautiful day. We love her so much and wish we could help her with the saving them all issues. I'm a spoiled brat (hee, hee) yet I know that me and Thunder are two of the lucky ones. This non-stop abuse of fur babies is serious stuff and it just never ends. Thunder barked me that he would love to sink his big teeth in them bad humans, but I know he wouldn't because he really is a big lover. Anyway, we all need to get some fresh air and some good sniffs but wanted to share this very sad video and who knows, maybe it will touch a human heart today and they'll go adopt a fur baby. It's a dog gone shame :(
Geez I'm so upset with Mom. She doesn't need to be barking ya all about how I get so excited that I pull her when we're walking. Okay, okay..I understand that this is not the right way to do it, do ya think I'm stupid!! I just want to get to that smell before Thunder does cause he just sniffs it all up and then there isn't much left for me to find. I know he's bigger and older but I want to find it First!! And them squirrels, I know they're throwing those acorns at me on purpose and laughing cause they know I can't catch them. I wish I could throw one back just once (hee, hee, sure once.. right!!) Anyway, the walk, okay. So maybe I do get really excited on our walks but Mommy said that I can do anything I want (I saw her put that on my page) and that I'm perfect..so, hmm, how come I didn't get to go for a WALK yesterday?? I can't promise that I will not pull but I can promise that I will not pull ALL the time. How's that! No, what do you mean no?..Ya know sometimes a doggie just can't win..isn't that a dog gone shame!! Well, guess what, I'm gonna for a walk cause Mommy just told me and Thunder..so there, I guess life is good..okay it's Furrtastic and maybe, I said MAYBE, I won't pull..okay let me change that, I won't pull unless I smell it FIRST..AND..those darn squirrels..if they start nailing me with them stupid acorns (that hurts!) I'm gonna have to pull alittle so that my pretty little head doesn't get bonked AGAIN!! Okay, I'm ready for my walk so I barked Mommy to stop typing on this thing...MOM. come on..puupplease can we go now!!
P.S. I'll have Mommy type ya all later and let ya know if those squirrels go me again! Woof to ya all later!!
Yesterday M0mmy, me and Thunder took a ride..Yeah!!! We had our heads stuck out the window and dog did that breeze feel great! Everything was just dog gone fine until we saw and heard this MEAN and CRAZY lady with a four legger. Me and Thunder looked at each other and decided we better let Mom handle this one. We really wanted to show her a thing or two (like our big, pretty teeth) but we just aren't that way. Well, if you could have seen her face after our Mom told her off (hee, hee), it was puupriceless. That woman was scolding her four legger (even though we all heard her SCREAMING at the poor pup) for not following directions and then she actually had the nerve (some humans just don't get it) to smack the little thing right in front of us all. And it wasn't a little pat..it was a hard smack!! Wrong thing to do. Just plain and simple wrong!! Especially in front of OUR Mommy. So of course she stopped the car! Mommy told her that she didn't deserve to have a four legger or any other animal and that someone should treat her that way and maybe then she'd think twice before abusing such an innocent, defenseless baby. She said some other things, but maybe we better not talk about that! (Thunder said they were bad words & he never wants to hear me bark them) That lady didn't know what to say..but really, what could she say. Thunder & I knew what to say, so we barked it at her!! Mommy was so upset that she started to cry as we continued on our ride. So we took matters into our paws and did what we do best...Yes, we cheered her right up. Woof Woof..Thunder stuck his head back out the window and was making these really stupid looking faces and I tried to climb on her lap thinking it was my turn to drive the car! She was laughing so hard at Thunder (he did look stupid, but don't tell him I said that) that she didn't see me coming..hee, hee:) Mommy said I am sooo spoiled but she was smiling so I guess it was okay. I really wanted to drive though..oh well, maybe next time. Anyway, we were all talking this morning about that goofy lady (okay so Mom was talking and we were listening) and Mommy decided to put this thing she reads on my diary. It makes her cry everytime she reads it but it helps her and other humans to understand us better. So here it is..it is beautiful and just for us!!
Ten Commandments For Pet Owners
1.My life is likely to last 10 to 15 years or more. Any separation from you will
2.Give me time to understand what you want from me. Don't break my spirit
with your temper, though I will always forgive you. Your patience will
teach me more effectively.
3.Please have me spayed or neutered.
4.Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in all the world is more
grateful for your kindness than mine. Don't be angry with me for long, and
don't lock me up as punishment. After all, you have your job, your friends,
your entertainment.. I only have you.
5.Speak to me often. Even if I don't understand your words, I understand
your voice when it's speaking to me. Your voice is the sweetest sound I
ever hear, as you must know by my enthusiasm whenever I hear your
6.Take me in when it's cold and wet. I'm a domestic animal and am no longer
accustomed to the bitter elements. I ask for little more than your gentle
hands petting me. Keep my bowl filled with water. Feed me good food so
that I may stay well to romp and play. By your side, I stand ready, willing
and able to share my life with you, for that is what I live for. I'll never forget
how well you've treated me.
7.Don't hit me. Remember, I have teeth that could easily hurt you, but I
choose not to bite.
8.Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative, ask yourself if
something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food,
I've been out in the sun too long, or my heart may be getting weak.
9.Take care of me when I get old. For you will grow old, too.
10.When I am old, or when I no longer enjoy good health, please do not make
heroic efforts to keep me going. I am not having fun. Just see to it that my
trusting life is taken gently. And be with me on that difficult journey when
it's time to say goodbye. Never say, "I just can't bear to watch it."
Everything is easier for me when you are there. I will leave this earth
knowing with my last breath I take.. that my fate was always safest in your
hands. I love you…
