   Leave a bone for Fergus

Fergie, Ferg, Rocket, Turkey

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

April 22nd 2005

Visiting Grandma; burrowing under the covers; baths; swimming; snow; sunbathing; my best fur friend, Dixie (German Shepherd mix); and my two-legged cousin, Ella

Staying home alone; when Mom is studying or on the computer; not being allowed in the shower

Favorite Toy:
Kong Goodie Bone stuffed with mini Old Mother Hubbard bones

Favorite Food:
A mix of Natural Balance (small bites) and Solid Gold

Favorite Walk:
All over town or on the treadmill with Mom

Best Tricks:
Shaking paws; rolling over; poking my head under the shower curtain to imitate a peeping tom; my balance beam routine on the back of Grandma's sofa; goat herding (goat aggravating)

Arrival Story:
For reasons I don't know (and for some I would never admit to) near my first birthday, my original family wanted a different dog and planned to take me to the shelter. My new Mom heard about me from her friend. I know my new Mom was taken with me the moment she met me. It's impossible not to love a good looking, lovebug like myself.

I am solid black, weigh 14 lbs and have longer legs than those of an average dachshund. My former owner's vet labeled me as a dachshund/terrier mix, however the DNA test reports I am mixture of dachshund and miniature poodle. Strangers confuse me with a lab puppy and ask Mom how big I'll be. I love playing with my toys, chewing bones, playing with other dogs and of course lots of attention. When I first visited Grandma, I ran super fast through her house and she called me "Rocket". When my curiosity gets me into trouble...she calls me "Turkey".

Happy Birthday to me! I'm 5 today :)

Today is it. It is my day. I'm the big number 5. Only issue is, I haven't sniffed out a cake or found any presents. I'm usually very good at finding things I'm not supposed to have. She must be hiding them really well.

I have to admit to celebrating my birthday a little early this month. Well alright a lot earlier as in twenty days earlier. My favorite fur-cousin, Ella, thought my birthday was April 2nd and gave me a new toy. She is only six and I didn't want to be rude so I went along with it and pretended it was my birthday. That kung-fu dog was fun to shake and toss around.

Now back to today...what is Mom thinking? She is spending the whole day home with me and I did get an extra treat when I came inside earlier. I'm just hoping that isn't all I get. Wonder what might be waiting for me at Grandma's when we go for dinner tonight...

It's back! I love the snow. I've waited for months to run in it, sniff it, melt it and chase snowballs. This time, Mom didn't waste her time shoveling a path in the grass for me. Last time, I ran right past it. It won't be here for long. I'm wishing for more snow.
