   Leave a bone for Thea - forever in my heart

Peeps, TheaPet, Thearrhea, TheeWee

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Sleeping. Eating. Pooping and peeing. Did I mention sleeping? Going to places where she doesn't have to meet strange dogs or people, especially if she can wade in a river or creek. The cat litter. Cuddling, beds, couches. Singing. Camping. Me.

Right now...the van that I bought her and her dogbrother Austin?! Go figure. She loved her Auntie Claire's van. Strange dogs. When people around her are upset, anxious, or afraid of her. Being all alone.

Favorite Toy:
Just a ball once in a while. She prefers to sleep.

Favorite Food:
Anything!! She was very thin for a long time, when she's stressed or anxious (or if I am) she stops eating. She's a much happier dog now and will eat almost anything and love it!! Especially her raw diet, and meaty bones!

Favorite Walk:
Places where she doesn't have to deal with meeting strange people or especially strange dogs. Thea doesn't like other dogs outside of her home. We have a few secret places we go where she can wade in the river or lay down in the sun

Best Tricks:
Tricks?! What are they? Thea isn't much of a trickster. She knows sit, down, come, out, and off. And "go like this" (you stick your arm out, and she copies). Sometimes she'll sing on cue...the lyrics are "woowoowoo, boobooboo". Think Chewbacca.

Arrival Story:
***THEA passed away on January 22 2007 at age 10 of bloat. She was so healthy otherwise. She is sadly missed and she left a very empty house in her wake. Thea was rescued from a Detroit shelter at age three. She initially did well in rescue, but soon some issues surfaced...common Neo confinement and separation issues...fear and confidence issues, and significant leash aggression towards strange people and dogs. I had real reservations about placing her anywhere so she was 'retired into rescue' (meaning she'll stay with me for the rest of her life). I have worked very hard with her and she's made so much progress in so many areas; ironically, she's a very 'adoptable' dog now...but it's too late. She's part of my family now.

Thea won the Best Dressed contest at least year's Rescue Reunion (Barleepalooza). See below! Did I mention she sleeps a lot?

I've Been On Dogster Since:

I don't know why but I'm beat today. I just want to sleep. I have done a few things to pass the time like watch stoneware, ponder something, and moan. I just can't keep my eyes open. Maybe I need to move a bowel or something. It just occurred to me that I am a very attractive female dog. I've never noticed before. Then again I'm not too sure what I look like.

It's too quiet in this place. I need something to ruin.

Another rainy day. Out there. I need not go out there, it's easier to sleep inside. Outside it's impossible to watch everywhere at every moment. Very dangerous - squirrels running around that I must threaten; cars driving along MY street which I must threaten; people walking along MY sidewalk which I must threaten. I feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger in that movie where everyone is after him on another planet. Pack leader keeps giving me lip for threatening everything but she obviously does not realize that they are all plotting to kill me. She has no idea, they are plotting to kill her, too. They are all just plain plotting all the time. Very unnerving. I have nightmares about it.

I think I just fell back asleep again.
