Is "Dog of the Week" conceited?, Me, Mimi, Bug, etc., etc.

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
pet tag recovery service
Quick Bio:

November 25th 2003

Sleeping in late, sunbathing, bully sticks, GOLDFISH CRACKERS, popcorn, deep tissue massage, and just sitting in the grass sniffing the air.

Having my tail unwound (it does look uncomfortable like that), getting attention when I'm not in the mood, "changes" on a path/sidewalk like manhole covers cuz they feel funny to my paws, flying insects, some dogs, being told I look like a fox.

Favorite Toy:
Bully Sticks will always be my favorite but every evening I go to my toy basket and bring out a toy hoping my Mom will toss it for me. She only throws them a few feet then tells me where they landed!

Favorite Food:
Whatever you seem to be having.

Favorite Walk:
Laguna Beach, California along the boardwalk and the path on Aliso Creek

Best Tricks:
Learning new commands to avoid walking into walls and stepping down & up curbs while out walking, shedding, down, sit, kiss.

I was diagnosed before the age of four with glaucoma and by the age of five I've lost both my eyes. So watch out for symptoms like sleeping more than usual (due to the pain) & the rubbing of an eye all of a sudden over & over. It may be a sign. I am the RESULT of bad breeding, please stop rescuing us (though that's hard to say) from the pet stores. I had so many "bugs" from my puppyhood that I was not able to be exposed to other dogs until I was four months old. When I finally got to attend puppy training I won fastest "sitter" in my class competition! Though I am not sighted I continue to surprise & delight my family by not giving up. Dad says he deserves to be a seeing eye person for a blind dog BOL!!!

Things are moving around here....I think it's time for another road trip.

They are packing the RV to go visit the grandkids!!! I think I'm looking forward to it. I know the little boy very well but I have not met the two year old girl. I do hope I behave. I promise to try.

"See" you all when we come back. It's gonna be hot. I do hope I am pampered like I should be so that my travels will be comfortable. We'll "see".


To Dude with Love by his Beloved Companion

This was just sent to my Mom by Dude's Mom. A tissue or two may be needed:

I walked with my partner to the gates to the other side and held him as he let go of his body and entered the divine realm. It seemed it was harder for me to let go of him than for him to let go of me. With him, I had opened the doors to my heart, that had previously been locked by my own choice. We shared feelings ones I’d never been willing or able to share – ranging from seemingly effortless accommodation, reckless acceptance, unwavering loyalty, and kindly patience. We neither of us had to give up our own vision, sense of importance, or source of individual joy to prove ourselves or our love to each other.

we both came to each other --closed, guarded, scared. He was
catatonic in the beginning, trembling in apoplexy and completely void of responses or acknowledgment. I was drawn inexplicably to him and I followed my heart.

We embarked and evolved on a 10 year journey through life together,
from the broken, imprisoned souls that we were, to strangely weird, to a little crude and rude, to happy, active, and responsive, to proud, beautiful and handsome to the awesome creatures of God through love that we were meant to be. Being with him was action-packed, adventure filled, and comfortable. Our dance was joyfully together, childishly playful, and tenderly affectionate.

As he came into his own, His physical and emotional presence took
control when he entered a room or walked down the street. He was
show-stopper stuff. A gentle curiousity radiated, a magnanimous
kindness telegraphed.

The love and devotion we felt for and lived through each other was our gift back to God and to ourselves as well.

Please be waiting for me on the other side, I whispered.


Speaking of Deep Tissue Massage....

We saw Dude's Mom yesterday afternoon on our walk. We sat on the hill together with another friend and her pup. Dude's Mom petted me while I sat up against her. She started massaging my back, moving her fingers along my spine and kept going up and down my back. Let's just say I was in dog heaven. Something Dude must be experiencing now. My Mom looked over at me and drool was dripping from my mouth. Boy did they laugh at me. I did not care at all. I hope she's there tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the.............
