   Leave a bone for Finnigan

Finn, My little Puli, Pu Pu, FinaMinagan, Mini-Finn, Finnster/Finsterino, and whatever pops into my brain at the moment...

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-dog rescue

July 5th 2003

His big brother, Mozart! Car rides ,running free at parks, and agility...especially the A-frame.

Being left out of something or left home alone, not getting ALL of the attention, being brushed, and burrs being pulled from his coat.

Favorite Toy:
Mozart's beard and face and ALL squeekie toys!

Favorite Food:
Liver and Chicken...I'm not food obsessed and I don't eat much.

Favorite Walk:
Connemara Conservatory...a huge, wild meadow with a ravine to splash in.

Best Tricks:
Crawling, falling off the bed and bouncing right back up again like a spring, sit, down, stay, figure eights, spins, dancing, agility, and 'touch'.

Arrival Story:
I met Finnigan at a rescue adoption outreach at a pet store. He looked just like a miniature Mozart (my other dog), and was so friendly, happy, and calm compared to the other dogs. I bent down to pet him and he put his paws on either side of my neck and started giving me kisses. That's all she wrote... *wink*

Finn is very smart and wiley. He can get out of a crate, open doors, and learns most of the tricks his big brother can do the first time he sees them. He is still very much the puppy though and has destroyed my blinds, lamp shades, shoes, and several other items. Hence, his full name is Finnigan Shenanigans Hooligan P. (It's a good thing he's so darned cute!) He does have a good heart and wants to please though, so there is hope for him yet. Finnigan loves agility and can't wait to start competing in January. He is fast and adorable...a real crowd pleaser for sure! He received his CGC certificate in November...woohoo! He is a great snuggler and kisser. He is also great with the kitty kats and enjoys laying down and watching them for hours. Oh, I almost forgot, his tail goes...round, round, round, wag, wag, wag, wiggle, wiggle. It's absolutely adorable!

Yuck! It's been raining for weeks and I haven't gotten to train for agility in over 4 weeks. This is horrible. My mom takes me to a little park during the dry patches to run with my brother. She's tired of us running and wrestling in the house and on her bed. (Especially when she's in it!) I have learned some new tricks while being stuck dead, roll over, high five. Also, to keep me busy and mentally stimulated, she has started hiding my toys and making me find them. Can you believe it?! She's also teaching me to 'dance' to Pop, Lock, and Drop It. Doesn't she know that song is for girls? OMG...please make the rain stop so I can get back to agility!!

My mom and I have been so busy training and competing in agility. I am doing AWESOME now, and I might even make it to Nationals next year if I keep listening and being focused during my runs. Sometimes I get the zoomies though. I'm soooo fast and I just can't help running ahead and doing something extra. I have gotten lots of Q's (qualifying runs) and 1st and 2nd places over the last few months. I LOVE agility, and I even have a huge fan club because I am so cute and excited when I run. My hair goes flying everywhere, my butt tucks under my back legs when I'm running super speedy, and all you can see is an extremely happy, black fur ball with a pink tongue zooming by. And, you can tell from my expression that I would be yelling "Woohoo" and "Wheeee" if I c ould speak English while I am running. I just wish we could compete every day, or even every weekend. My mom says she has to work and has other responsibilities, but I don't think any of that can be as important as agility. Do you?



Cuteness and Greatness all in One!

My mom finally uploaded my darling Easter picture onto this site. Aren't I the cutest bunny you've ever seen? I pretended to not like getting my picture taken, for my big brother's sake. However, I secretly LOVE IT!!! I'm just so darned cute. I love to jump in front of everyone and everything right before mom snaps the pic. After all, someone as cute as me SHOULD be center stage. Don't you agree? Of course you do!

I'm not just about looks though. I am also very smart and I learn things real quick. Today, my mom took me to herding class for the first time. (My big brother has been several times, but we won't discuss him here.) Anyway, I was sooooooooooooo excited to see those sheep. I couldn't help calling out to them and distracting everyone around me. The sheep responded (I'm sure it was b/c of my total cuteness), but my mom had to crate me in the car until it was my turn. Sigh.

Anyway, I am a natural herder. I got right into that pen and started chasing those sheep around and around and around. Everyone was so proud of me and kept telling me what a good dog I was. Wow, it was so fun. Mom doesn't let me do this with the cats at home, but these sheep are better than the cats at running the way I want them too anyway. I really liked it when the lady was helping train me, because she kept saying that I was so cute. I think the sheep thought I was cute too. They kept looking at me with their big flirty eyes and kept calling out to me to come get them. One was so enthralled with my cuteness, that she didn't watch where she was going and she ran into the fence. She had a pretty bad cut on her leg and it was bleeding a lot. Noboby, except my mom, seemed too worried about it though. After all, lots of ladies are going to fall for me. Who could resist someone as cute and great as I am?

Well, I'm a bit tuckered out from chasing those girls today. Sweet dreams everyone!
