Nicknames: hud, hudsy, heidi hudson, budsona, budso, bitch, the queen, the hawk, precious, buttsauce, baby, nutsie, money pit, america's next top model
Birthday: April 23rd 2002
Likes: food! vegetables included. and being the center of attention. she also LOVES dressing up! I think she believes she is very beautiful. she has that brat attitude! :)
Pet-Peeves: getting in trouble, any dog coming too close to smell her face--although she can happily smell them!
Favorite Toy: toy? it's all about the food. toys aren't that fun! but food is always good.
Favorite Food: i cannot even answer that. anything! meat!
Favorite Walk: anyplace with grass where she can roll around and lay there. the beach where she can dart into the water like a spaz, then run back to the sand and get as filthy as she can! she loves soft snow, not the hard stuff where she sinks and gets nervous!
Best Tricks: ARE YOU SHY, hudson? wave, sneeze, sitting pretty, bang!, bow, what does a big dog/little dog say...
Arrival Story: i saw her puppy picture (its in the plus photobook somewhere)--had to get her. it was love at first sight. too bad she's a nut! but i adore her! smart and more sensitive than any dog i've met (if you look at her cross-eyed or take in a deep breath, she gets upset, seriously)
Bio: hudson lived with her big sister callisto (until she passed away last april 2007) and big brother oliver and she adores them! she is the baby and a diva, much to their chagrin. she expects because she is so pretty that she can get whatever she wants. and she does. sadly, she has also been through a lot --she's only six now, and she's had parvo (she arrived with it off the plane), 2 elbow surgeries, and hip dysplasia in both hips, pinched nerves to where she couldn't lay down, or put her front feet up. she also has immune deficiencies like thyroid, gastrointestinal, oh I could go on and on...but she's worth it. she is so sweet and just leans on people. she loves wiggling her butt around to be cute and if she is near you and you're not petting her, she will bump your hand away from doing what you're doing so that you will pet her. (like when i'm typing at the computer). and including other dogs--like don't bother petting any other dog when hudson is around, she just shoves her way in between. ever know a dog who just knows she's miss thang? meet hudson! She just passed her CGC on her first try on her third birthday! I was so proud of her considering I didn't think she could! She showed me! She is also Miss Poser, she'll just sit there and look pretty whenever a camera is around--such a model! She LOVES dressing up, when she puts a costume on, she become Miss Confident. And I just discovered she loves birds like parrots. she gets so happy when she sees them in pet stores, has to look and stick her nose close, not knowing they could peck her, but it's so cute, her tail wagging so happily! she also loves horses! She loves her life. Who wouldn't?
update 2/23/07: just found out from an mri because she'd been having weakness in her hind end that hudson has a slightly bulging disc in her neck and a more severe one in her lower back--along with all her other problems, my poor baby. to avoid surgery we are going to do acupuncture, massage, swimming, physical therapy, etc...she's in no pain right now and i plan on keeping it that way! her life has changed and she can't run on the beach or snow or jump and play for right now but she can do long flat walks and see her doggie friends and she's happy as can be. and she can still do her tricks! she's also very thrilled, as am i, that she won the dog show usa's best trick competition! we got to be in our paper here and on tv and are both very proud!!!! she has a huge head right now lol! (or maybe its me)!
update 7/5/08 i chose to not do surgery and use acupuncture & physical therapy and now my baby at 6.2 yrs old can go to the beach again, hike again, run and play again. yes, she's weak and goes through bad spots but she's made it thus far on spirit and strength of will alone. i try to be more positive and know ive given this dog the best life ever possible no matter what. she hates being left out when big brother oliver goes with me when she's having a bad day, and she lets me know it! ;) she's got a huge heart this dog...and i pray she lives pain free for a much longer time to come.
hi everyone! hey i wanted to say thanks for you all clicking on me to see me as Dog of the Week, my mommy is sooo proud of me even though I didn't do anything! I think it was the costume. Us swiss girls need to show off our heritage every now and then--me & my other sister went to a doggie costume parade yesterday in our swiss miss outfits and my mom wore one, too! We didn't win but we had fun and got so many pictures taken of us! i LOVE to show off and wear clothes! Anyway, thank you again, I hope you like my page and want to be my pup pal!
when i went out hiking with my brother and sister and other friends, my mom brought along two new boy dogs...i really liked one of them immediately, he was handsome and fun. he kept licking my mouth. i tried playing with him but got scared cause he was kind of rambunctious and i'm a big baby so i screamed when he touched me with his paw, but then every time i screamed, he'd stop and kiss me. it made me feel like i was even more of a princess.
