Doggie Dynamics:

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

January 22nd 2004

Being around people, other dogs, fetch, being the center of attention. She loves to be held & loves when people come over. She also loves her kitty Chloe, the Shiba 500, pulling my socks off, homemade treats, her stuffed lion, and rolling in Mom's hair

Having her nails clipped, and not getting what she wants when she wants it. And she has a special whine reserved for not getting what she wants!

Favorite Toy:
Her kong, people, Chloe

Favorite Food:
Treats! Homemade doggie treats, hot dogs, cheese.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, especially the beach and Shiba meet-ups

Best Tricks:
She can sit, down, crawl, shake, high-5, leave it, fetch, clean the floor , closing cabinets & drawers on command, walking on her hind legs, dance (spin on hind legs) and several agility commands. And the most amazing Shiba trick ever- she will WAIT!

Arrival Story:
I was lucky enough to get in touch with some Shiba lovers who knew a wonderful breeder that just had a litter and was willing to meet me, and long story short I have Hailey. I had my pick of 2 girls, and there was no doubt Hailey was for me. She was a big chubby girl who followed me all around the house and was more interested in what I was doing than what her crazy sister was doing. I had to have her, and she hasn't changed. She loves to come to work, go to the park, and generally just be anywhere there are people or dogs. She is the best :). Hailey's dad is a black and tan named Porter: http://www.shibas.com/porter.html, http://www.shibas.com/porterpedi.h tml. Her Mom is a Red named Momo: http://www.shibainus.com/. Her Mom is Miss November in the 2006 Shiba Inu calendar.

Hailey is just a happy go lucky dog. She is not your typical Shiba in many ways. She likes to sit in laps, be carried, doesn't door bolt, etc. However she will sound all alarms should anyone walk too close to the house and she becomes suddenly deaf when she sees something she wants. She is a ton of fun and I can't imagine life without her, even though there I times that I swear she is going to drive me insane!

Saturday was a really good but LONG day! Mom and I left the house early and went over to Kizo's house! I wasn't too thrilled because my Mom had that stupid seatbelt harness on me though. Then we got in the car and went to Chrissy Field in San Francisco. There were 8 Shibas for our meet-up and while we were there we met another Shiba! One of the Shibas that was there was Suki who Mom let live in our house for a while while she was finding her forever home. I didn't like Suki very much when she was living in our house but I was really nice to her on Saturday and even walked with her side by side! That made my Mom really happy. I had my Mom post pictures of Saturday for me at http://imageevent.com/tburt/chrissyfield06 We were at the beach and walking for 4 hours! Then on the way home Mom's friend called and said she was at the art and wine festival. So on the way home we went to the art and wine festival for a few hours. Man, it was hot out there! I was happy when we finally left. Then I hung with Kizo some more before Mom took me home.

Sunday Mom took me to the dog park to play with my buddy Hiro. I love him! We are always kissing each other. We only played for about 5 minutes though because it was hot and we were both tired. Then Mom, Hiro, his parents, and I went shopping. Then Hiro got to come over for a while and play!! That was fun after we had some doggie ice cream and lots of water we went nuts!

Then on Monday Mom took me to daycare. She said she was going to keep me home because I seemed so tired but she took me anyway. My daycare just expanded into their new big building and the web cams didn't work yet so Mom was worried all day that I was too tired. Boy did I fool her! I played all day! The workers said I have never played so much and they wondered where all my energy came from. I just love to keep people guessing! I hope all my doggie friends had as good of a weekend as I did.


Busy Week!

Whew, today is only Wednesday and I am pooped! Monday started off pretty normal but really early. I couldn't figure out why Mom was up so early. Then when she was leaving she picked up my leash. Woo hoo! I ran to the door and out to the car. We went for a drive and we went to daycare! My first day! Mom said I had to be there at 7am so I could be the first doggy there since it was my first day. I love daycare, I even got a report card! The daycare people said I did great- I had fun, made friends, did all my commands, and didn't get a single time out. I had so much fun and they sent me home with a frisbee and cookies. Can't wait to go back! Then we went to Mom's friends house and I got to run around with the kids. When we finally got home I was so sleepy. Then the next night Mom took me to a new class. I was confused because we were at a different place with lots of dogs, but Mom said we are practicing serious obedience. Whatever that means. Mom said I did great except for a down stay. What the heck is a stay?? I want to go where the people are. Oh well, Mom left me at home today when she left which is ok because I need a nap!

Oh boy oh boy!!! My mom has been talking about this whole day care thing for a while. I didn't really know what she talking about, but she kept saying Hailey needs to get insurance first. I need to fill out Hailey's application. Hailey has to get a shot so she doesn't get kennel cough. A shot??? Oh no no, no thank you. I started thinking daycare was some crazy place I wanted no part of. Then I heard one of my best Shiba buddies goes and he likes it, so maybe. So Mommy came home in the middle of the day and we went for a car ride. She said be a really good girl Hailey, it is your daycare evaluation. I am always a good girl, what is she talking about? Sure I chewed a shoe once, is she still dwelling on that one? Anyway, we got to daycare and went inside. I could smell and hear the doggies but not see them. After a little bit, here came my best buddy! Oh we got to play and play. If this is what daycare is, I love it!! Then more and more doggies came. Oh I LOVE this place! Mom says I get to go there every week and play while she is at work. Sweet! Then I got a yummy raw lamb bone for being so good. Mom made me share it with the cat, but that's ok it was still good. I can't wait to go back!
