   Leave a bone for AU (Gold)

Gold Digger, Go-Go-Go-GOLD!

Doggie Dynamics:

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

July 4th 1990

A butt-scratch first thing in the morning, preferably on the people's bed!

Just don't put your hands anywhere near his mouth and you'll escape unscathed.

Favorite Toy:
No one particular toy stands out -- he'll take a ball if it's gently sent his way, or a bone but cookies are always best.

Favorite Food:
Wet food with that funny worming-medicine taste that only comes once a month!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere with Mom!

Best Tricks:
Gold will sit-up and beg for attention, at random, out of the blue, no commands or anything.

Arrival Story:
AU and his sister Nugget were listed on the Clear Creek rescue site for about two months after his first set of people ended up homeless. Then they both got adopted to a family with small children. AU didn't really care for children so he went back to the shelter where he waited for about a month for us to come and get him. At the shelter, everyone was calling him "ay-you" but AU is the chemical symbol for gold so as soon as we called "C'mere Gold!" he knew he'd found his new people.

He's a sweetheart who's pretty old now and he's very happy to be part of this pack where cookies are plentiful, love is never-ending and it's just good to be alive.

Forums Motto:
I'm gonna hide under the bed!

I've lost all the little teeth on the bottom between my two (totally awesome) fangs. That's okay, my mom loves me and got me some of the bestest organic peanut butter and honey dog treats EVER so I don't have to hurt my teeth wrasslin' with those big old Costco cookie bones. I still try to gnaw on them sometimes but usually my (fat cow of a) sister Xena helps me finish them. I don't mind - let her become the Round Mound of Hound instead of me! I can be dapper in my old age!


It stinks getting old.

I've been really shaky lately. My whole body trembles, like I'm freezing cold but I'm not. I think I might have Puppy Parkinson's or something. And I've got these weird reddish-brown spots on the tops of my front paws. I keep licking them trying to get them clean but they won't go white. It's very annoying; I *like* being clean! Maybe Mom will send me to the Doggy Salon this weekend so I can be clean when I meet new people. I feel better about myself when I'm fluffy and clean.


Oh boy, oh boy!

My birthday week is coming up soon. My sister Xena just had a birthday weekend party and it was pretty fun. We all got some special treats. I can't wait til it's my turn so I can sleep with my people, get extra treats and enjoy all the extra special love & attention. I don't have many more left, you know. My dad says there's no way I'm going to be 16 yrs old cuz I still act like a puppy. My mom calls me "a bouncy flouncy dog" cuz of the way I bounce around and get so excited.
