Arrival Story:
My owners got me from a pickup truck at wal-mart, I heard mom say I hope she is not there when we come out but I was and she has loved me ever since...I am old and crabby but I am a great watch dog!!! My family loves me alot and esspecially my DAD!!!

My pawrents both have had dogs thier whole lives...but both say they have never had a dog like me, I was a humanal, thats slang for part animal part human. I was the first for them as a couple so I was kinda like the baby till that kid came along...BOL! I had some mad skills in home protection, I could hear a leave scuffle across the street and I would let the whole house know when something or someone was in my yard that wasn't suppossed to be. I survived a tornado in 99, I survived the k9 dog academy, I bit the telephone guy because he jumped at me right on his calf, I was very high strung with strangers and as loveable as a baby when it came to mom grandma and my daddy. I had a paranoid sense that I stunk when mommy and daddy would tease and sniff me and say SHEWIE as they fanned thier hands over thier noses, it would make me start sniffing myself and cry like a little distressed puppy. I was the best of both worlds the good and bad...I was a great watch dog but not good with the kid. I had a personality a mile high, breath that smelled so bad that it made momma kick me off the couch all the time. I loved to snuggle with my dad...I would sit up against him on my back legs and lean into him like I was his girlfriend. Momma frequently asked if I wanted her wedding band...BOL! BOL! BOL! She's so silly... My pawrents love me very much...I am the Alpha dog of my home, even still in spirit...My ashes sit in a basket with my fur bro Peanut's ashes and all of our toys. **May 29th 2008**Today I am going to rainbow bridge...my mommy has been crying all morning... I have lumbosacral stenosis...I moan alot and can't breathe... last night was rough... I layed next to the ac register and cried all night long... I can't walk very well and my tail won't come up and I just don't have the strength to go on... My grandma brought me a bisquit from mcdonalds and I heard mom say I would get a cheeseburgar for lunch... it isn't really far off my diet anyways... so I just wanted to say thanks to all my pals at dogster and peace be with you all.. I'll be waiting at rainbow bridge for you and we will play and run without pain...

Ten Commandments for a Responsible Pet Owner
as dictated by the pet.

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Any separation from you will be painful.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me. It is crucial for my well-being.

4. Don't be angry with me for long and don't lock me up as punishment. You have your work, your friends, your entertainments,
but I have only you.

5. Talk to me. Even if I don't understand your words I do understand your voice when speaking to me.

6. Be aware that however you treat me I will never forget it.

7. Before you hit me, before you strike me, remember that I have teeth that could easily crush the bones in your hand and yet
I choose not to bite you.

8. Before you scold me for being lazy or uncooperative ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I'm no t getting
the right food, I have been in the sun too long or my heart might be getting old or weak.

9. Please take care of me when I grow old. You too will grow old.

10. On the difficult journey, on the ultimate difficult journey, go with me please. Never say you can't bear to watch. Don't make me
face this alone. Everything is easier for me if you are there because I love you so.

Take a moment today to thank God for your companions. Enjoy and take good care of them. Life would be a much duller,
less joyful thing without God's critters. Please pass this on to other pet owners.
We do not have to wait for heaven to be surrounded by hope, love and joyfulness. It is here on earth and has four feet and fur.


has it been a year already?

Hey Diggs....

I remember one year ago today was the hardest day, making the ultimate decision to free you from pain...I remember crying and crying and crying all day long....(the whole week prior as well). Listening to you get up and walk around then lay down and dribble and get up with this look of mom I am so sorry for peeing on the floor look on your face. It wasn't your faoult baby, your kidneys had probably already started shutting down. Life is still so different without you. Sweetie comes all the way down the hallway now and lays down when we all go to bed sounds a bit like you minus the big moan that would come as soon as you got settled on the floor. We have taken your ashes (peanuts too) and put them in the safe still have all the toys in the basket thought it best to be be safe than sorry if the house burned up, we would still have both of you. I can't help but wonder what your weasel head would look like with another year of white on it. Ugh!!! We miss your howls as station 6 comes screaming down the blvd, we miss your annoying barking at everything, we miss the flashlight game, the stick game, the ball game, the snuggles, the kisses, your great manners....yea...burp fart...omg and when you would fart you would get up and leave the room....lol...most of all I miss doing sit stay and wait....you did that so well....there could be steak in a dish and we would give you those commands and you would wait so patiently for the release while drool would drip from your mouth creating a puddle on the floor...that was so mean of us...but you followed command....because all in all you were a great dog. A loyal friend and confidant, a member of the family, our kid, our sweet unpredictable crabby grumpy old lady.... and Dad Lydia and I miss you more than words could ever express....Have a great day today with all those special angels who helped you and I heal and give us the opportunity to create more memories together everyday.

I love you miss you every single day ♥
