Arrival Story:
I've always wanted a dog, and several years ago for Christmas my parents gave me permission to get a dog. That summer, we went to several local humane societys, at one of which Annie (then Little Orphan Annie) was the only puppy, and it was love at first sight. : )

Annie has a load of personality. The humane society found her in a parking lot when she was about twelve weeks old, where we think she survived by hunting small animals. She had, so we're told, a terriable case of worms (thus the nickname Wormy). She's an amazingly quick learner... she was housebroken in three days, learned down in less than fifteen mintues, and High-Five in less than three. I've worked at a humane society for over six years now, and I've yet to find a dog as all around lovely as Anne! (Mind you one of my favorite quotes go something along the lines of: There is only one Best Dog in the world, and every child has him.)

Well, this is simply paw-tastic. I sliced my paw in the backyard on Monday, and was taking fine care of it myself, when all of a sudden I got dragged off to the V-E-T. They poked at it, took me away from my mom, and then made me sleep for a while. When I woke up, my poor paw was really sore (I think there are threads in it) and there was a gaint bandage on it. Now my mom changes the bandage every day and won't let me lick my paw. AND I have to wear a bag over it when I go outside so it doesn't get wet - how embaressing!


I've Been Tagged!

Tag - you're it! Or so some of my pals said. Alright, but what does that mean?

Here are the rules:
Each player starts with seven facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 Pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag & list their names. Don't forget to P-mail that they have been tagged & to read your Diary. Or send them a fun rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

Okay, so here are some pawsome facts about me:

1. I LOVE to learn new tricks! And I know everyone's favorite, so if they have a tasy tidbit, I can usually weasle it off of them in one quick trick. Humans are so easy!

2. I enjoy playing fetch with my people - if no one's looking, I'll push one of my toys down the basement steps and then make funny noises until someone goes downstairs and gets it for me. If they see me about to do it, I'll just sit at the top of the stairs innocently and chew on it until they turn their back. bol!

3. I can make several dozen noises, and I do a great wookie impression. I can always surprise my people with a new sound if I want something!

4. Max may drool for apples and bananas, but I confess to having a major sweet tooth. I'll take whipped cream or toast over steak any day, and Pop Tarts have to be one of the best inventions ever.

5. My mom works at a barkery, so sometimes I get to go to work with her!

6. When my mom gets the nail clippers out, I sit in front of her and give her my paws one at a time. It's like getting treats for nothing!

7. I LOVE to hunt! My mom doesn't let me off to chase squirrels anymore now that I've caught a few (yum!), and mice and voles are too easy so I mostly ignore them now. I used to hunt ants, but one bit me and got stuck on my tounge. My daddy had to use pliers to get it out - I don't do that anymore.

Tag, you're it!

The Dog Days of Summer - Days All About Me

It may be hot, humid, and icky outside, but my girl's home all the time and we get to do lots of fun things together. Sometimes we just sit around and she stares at one of those books, but I'm just happy to be near here. Other times we get to play outside, go for walks, and learn new tricks (I'm working on "take it," "spin," and "crawl" right now!), though as soon as I get nice and smelly in the woods, she gives me a bath! Eww!

I'm getting nervous, though - she keeps warning me that she's going to have to leave for College in the fall. This is NOT a good thing. Her brother (my uncle?) left for College and he didn't come back for MONTHS! I love my "grandma and pa" a lot, but do they honestly think I'm going to put up with Mom being gone that long? Huh, not likely!

I guess I'll just have to enjoy what time I have now, but if I haven't been updating my page lately, it's so I can savor the rest of the summer with my mom. Wags and licks to all my pals, new and old!
