I am on a 30 day trip out West. I saw the Zion Nat'l Park today in Utah and took a swim in a small river. I'm now on my way to check out the sandy beaches of San Diego. I am really far from home right now. I'll have some photos on all my web pages soon. www.chickus.com

I was voted most photogenic by Indy Tails Magazine.
You can see the photo online here.

I won a cool night-light with my photo on it.

I turned 2 years old this month and received tons of email messages and comments on Dogster.com and MySpace.com. Thank you for all your wishes! I was fed great food on that day - steak scraps, hamburger and my favorite, BEER! We spent lots of the weekend at the Art Center for the Broad Ripple Art Fair and friends snuck me cups of more beer! I woke up my parents Sunday morning with a huge beer burb in their faces. BOL (bark out loud)

What's coming up?
I was recently elected to be the official macot for Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound. I'll be at their first grand opening event in June. Go to http://www.walkAhound.org for more information and to sign up for notification of all their Indianapolis events.

I recently entered a new contest to be in a commercial for Circuit City as the Firedog. The best thing about this contest is the prize! If I win first, $50,000 or more will be donated to a Humane Society of my choice.
All the details are here: http://kodak.eprize.net/firedogcontest/
Wish me luck!

SEVEN FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

1. My legs have always been WAY too short.
2. I hate shiney instruments - nail trimmers, combs, Dr. tools - etc.
3. I don't pack with other dogs much - just with people.
4. I love to go to the post office and tear up all the junk mail my family gets there.
5. I love to steal from bags and purses. Don't leave bag on my floor.
6. I love a cup of milk before I go to bed. Dad always gets some for me.
7. I watch movies with the family and sometimes bark at the actors if they look mean.

 

Traveled a few hundred miles to help out in Boone, N.C.

I was on the MTN TV news to promote my appearance in Boone, N.C. during the weekend of August 18th to benefit "High Country Friends for Life".

See videos of the TV news here.

If one donated, they received a "pawtographed" 8 by 10 color photo of me. I also snored by Bass Lake watching the wild ducklings that week while mom and pops did some fishing.

High Country Friends for Life is a network of volunteers that take dogs and cats abandoned at Animal Control, foster them, and then get them adopted through Petfinder.com and weekly Saturday Pet Fairs (11 am - 5 pm) at Lowes Hardware in Boone, NC. They desperately need donations to cover their veteranary costs. Many of the dogs and cats they help are in very poor health.
They are an approved non profit tax deductable organization.

Woof!

The Clinton County Humane Society Party

I'll be making a personal appearance on Friday July 20th from 5 to 6 PM to benefit the Clinton County Humane Society. During my visit I'll be donating a few items that I won in some online contests.
This event is special celebration of my 1 year anniversary of adoption from the CCHS on July 20th, 2006. For donations, attendees chose either a "pawtographed" mini poster of me or a personal photo of you with me. Cake and ice cream will be served and adoptable pets can also be seen while you celebrate. I hope to see some of you you there!

Oh yeah, maybe I'll be trying "Rufus Cam" (www.RufCam.com) for the first time.

Early 2:30 am rampage.

Oh Boy - Did I have fun early Tuesday morning.
One of my human bros slept over so he could be close to the airport for a 7 am flight to Vegas. We went to bed at 12:05 am.
I snuck into his room at 2:30 am and started licking his arm and then his face. He woke up FAST! He is not very accepting of wet face licks.
When he tried to get me out of the room, I grabbed one of his socks - stopped - and just stared at him. I ran out of the room and he chased me yelling "Give it to me!" We went around and around the coffee table until he found my treats. I dropped the sock, he gave me what I wanted and we both went back to bed.
When he woke up at 4:30 am to leave and catch the plane, my Pops was told about the early morning rampage. Pops just smiled, patted my head and took my bro to the airport.
BOL!

Thanks for voting for me!
