Favorite Walk:
Headwaters Forest

Best Tricks:
Chasing my tail, which mocks me; "Turn left; turn right; roll over; pretty sit" combo; biting the jet spray from the hose; spinning in mid-air while catching the frisbee; faithfully following mommy's command, "Ignore me!"

Arrival Story:
Aiki was rescued from the pound in Colorado Springs when he was 9 months old. He was my first dog, and I fell in love with him the first day I saw him.We belonged to each other for almost 15 years. He was my first dog, and will always be in my heart.

I named him Aiki, because I was practicing aikido when I got him. Aikido is a martial art that means "the way of peace" or "the way of harmony with ki (the universal energy)". Aiki was so spastic when I got him, that I thought naming him "harmony with ki" was nicely ironic.

Forums Motto:
I fetch, therefore I am.

OMD! Mommy didn't check her e-mail until noon and was surprised to find several new pup pal requests and gifts for me. She *finally* figured out that I am being honored as Dog of the Day! (She is very difficult to train, sometimes.)

Thanks to the staff for choosing me and to everypup for their love, gifts and requests.


I'm finally feeling my age

Well, mommy says I've been "bunny hopping" down stairs for a while now. I haven't seen any bunnies, though. I'd sure like to chase one if I see one.

I've been going to the chiropractor, and I love Dr. Jan! She pets me all over, moves a hips there, pushes a shoulder a little over there, and then I go down the stairs like normal for about a week or so. I had to miss a week, and now I'm hopping a lot. I did get acupuncture on Friday that helped, but tonight mommy pressed on my hips just a little bit, and I yelped. Luckily, I have chiro on Tuesday and acupuncture on Friday. Mom will also ask about increasing my glucosamine and if it's time to consider Rimadyl or some other anti-inflammatory.

I still feel young, but I just can't run or jump or fetch like I used to. Still, I'm doing great for a pup who will be 12 in July (just before mommy's wedding!).


I've been tagged!

Well I've been tagged by Zeus so here we go!!

Here are the rules (Hint: Copy and paste the rules so you don't have to type them again):

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!

So here are 7 fun facts about me...

1. I can turn in mid-air as I catch a frisbee, ball, stick, etc.
2. When I'm frustrated, I grumble and dance back and forth with my front legs!
3. I don't like change, unless it's a new toy or a new place to run off-leash.
4. No one can believe that I'm almost 10 years old, since I'm still usually the fastest dog around!
5. I *love* my post-beach spa treatment of getting rubbed down with a soft towel.
6. I once jumped into the hot tub with mommy when she wouldn't pay attention to me!
7. My favorite snack in the whole world is BULLY STICKS!

Here are my 7 tags:

1. Annie
2. Cowboy
3. Diesel
4. Levi
5. Pepper
6. Sadie May
7. Sargent
