Arrival Story:
I met Dude on New Yrs. Day '06. He came bursting out of my friends conservatory and launched himself onto my lap. His prior owners kept apologizing for his behavior and kept reminding me that he was kept out in their backyard with 2 other large dogs and was only allowed in the house for 5 min. a day. I remember telling them that if at any time they got sick of him, that I would gladly have him. Imagine my surprise when he landed on my doorstep about a week later. They said he was handful and that he kept knocking their children over so I was welcome to him. He's owned us for a little over 7 months now and he's become a very loving, playful practical joker. Very much a Mommy's boy, but love Dad's arms as a chew toy. We can't walk him through town without adults, children and other 4-leggers alike coming over and saying hi. He's seen his prior owners just once. That was enough as he hid behind my husband's legs.

Bio:
Dude loves everything and anyone. There's a certain tree in our local park that he simply must eat the leaves from....all other trees, bushes, plants are safe. He especially loves going to the beach where he's let off his lead and within seconds or so it seems, he's this tiny little blip on the horizon, but turn your back on him....he's at your side in a flash. Loves chasing all those pesky seagulls off HIS beach! He's just discovered that belly tickles are so much fun!!!! He'll nag you to death so that you'll tickle his tummy. Love ice cubes as well! Can't go into the freezer without him begging for ice. I guess you could say that he's most famously known for his maniacal greetings. Can't walk in the house without 15 min of mayhem just to welcome you home.

Hi...now that the weather has gone cooler, BOY!...do I LOVE IT!!!! I do not like the summers unless Mom takes me to the beach. NOW I love to go into town with Mom and hang outside of my favorite shops here in North Wales. Everybody, but everybody, always gives me a scratch and a tickle.....do I have these people trained or not? HA! I still like to eat the same leaves from the same tree in the park, just like I did when I was a puppy. I still dig for A different country...haven't quite figured it out yet though, Mom's American, Dad's English and we live in North Wales.....Hmmmmmmm. Maybe I'll fo for China as Mommy loves her Chinese...never gives me any though cuz she says hers is too spicy so I sit and look pretty and wait for Daddy to give me some of his.
Right now, Mommy is pestering me to go for a walk. But I'm too busy typing. Think I might go anyway cuz she gives the bestest walkies a dog could ask for. She's still my Number 1 stick thrower and walker!!!!!!!

 

It's SUMMER!!!!!!!!

I know it's summer because my Mom has gotten my favorite thing in the whole wide world....sugar free popsicles! She can't open the freezer without me having a nosy and trying to steal one. She ONLY lets me have one a day....meanie! My Daddy's been home with me since Feb 9th. He hurt his back. BUUUUT, Mom takes me every where with her except her work. Been to the beach today. Mom keeps laughing because she says I don't dig holes like other dogs....she says I dig tunnels. I Love to chase the birds.....nasty seagulls anyway. But my favorite thing is trying to get all the rocks out of the sea. Mom throws them back in and I grab them right back out. We walk for miles along the beach.....geez...she does know how to tire a doggy out. But I ge even because as soon as we get home, I run and throw myself on the bed and leave a nice bit of sand right on her pillows. Mom says she gonna have to take some recent pics because I'm not as sleek as I was in the pics on here. My coat's gotten very shaggy and scruffy and she calls me a rag-a-muffin these days. Says I look like Wiley E. Coyote from the side, so she calls me Doodle E. Dog. I don't care what she calls me as long as I keep getting my 4 daily walks and she keeps them long.

 

Wow...I'm an Artist!!!

Today my Mommy was doing a bit of DIY.....She decided it was time to paint and me, being only 10 months old decided to have a sniff and paw. My tail went in the paint can and the more she told me to come to her, the more I barked and wagged my tail. I did manage to get some paint on the walls along with the sofa (Mom's not too mad about that as she's getting a new one), the carpet (again, not too mad as she's tearing it out), her coffee table (oops! She's not thrilled with that), the Mailman (he just laughed), and Daddy in his good pants for work (a bigger oops for that)
She laughs alot at me.....I wonder why though. She keeps calling me a goofy boy and says that I'm her world.
Thanks for reading this! Woof! Woof!
