   Leave a bone for Rikka

Rikka Tikka, Tikka Rikka, big nose, mama's girl

Quick Bio:

sitting or laying at the feet of mom or dad and just looking at them oh... and chew bones!!

my immature older sister... she plays "fetch" like a common ordinary dog. (ugh) She is just too into fun, while I sit and watch over the flock, especially mum and dad.

Favorite Toy:
Who has time for toys? I am busy escorting mom and dad to the bathroom.... and watching out the windows for "bad guys".

Favorite Food:
oh my, peanut butter, chicken, ice cream.... Yea!! that's it ICE CREAM.

Favorite Walk:
Mom and I will start walking this spring... I think it will be great:)

Best Tricks:
Barking at "Bad Guys". Course I have never actually seen a bad guy, but when Mom and Dad tell me they are out there... I scare them off and as soon as mom and dad tell me they are gone, I am so proud and happy!!!

Arrival Story:
we have always wanted a german shepherd and planned on having one after Frank or Betty (our Doxies) are "gone".... but an urgent email telling of Rikka and her sister being AKC regist., free and desparate ... sealed our fate! now we have FOUR house dogs! UPDATE: Frank and Betty (Puppy Mill Rescues) have gone over the bridge.... Frank last fall and Betty this winter. We hope they are well and happy and getting to do what puppies and young doggies should do, since they missed that here on earth!!

My sister Shoogie and I fight sometimes.... I am trying to be patient with her.... but she thinks she should be boss because she is older... but I am much bigger and wiser. I think I should be the boss, don't you??? Mom and Dad wont leave us alone together anymore... cause I dont get mad at her easy (and she reaLLY irritates me ). Once my patience is gone and I am hanging by a thread, I just cant help myself.... Mom and Dad stop us though, and I am sure glad they do, or I would kick her Pattooty!!!!!

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Rikka Tikka's Life

The greatest awesomest thing happened last weekend!

Last Friday Mom brought home some bags from my very favoritist store.... (sometimes I get to go there too) and inside was this scary looking thing....

She sat down with a paper-thingy and the scary thing and some treats and even though I fussed a little she tied my nose up in the scary thing!! (It took some doing, cause I have a BIG nose) Mom said it was called a "Gentle Leader".

I tried to free my nose a couple times, but then Mom took me outside and I love it so much, I didn't care if my nose was tied up or not. Well... the NEATEST thing happened..... I started to drag Mom down the street and was ready to get fussed at when all of a sudden my nose whipped around towards mom and I slowed right down... MOM WAS SO PROUD AND HAPPY.

This nose tie thingie changed Mom completely!!! She did not pull back on the leash or jerk it or fuss. We had a great walk. AND since it worked so good on Mom... the next day I got to go to my very first PARADE,.... Wooo HOOO

Let me tell ya... if YOU don't have one of these gentle lead things and your mom acts up on walks.... send her out to get one!!!! :)
Auf Wiedersehen!
