not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

October 1st 1995

Bacon, of course!

When those kids across the street keep ringing the doorbell a million times... doesn't anyone know blind dogs hear better???

Favorite Toy:
Hmm... does food count??

Favorite Food:
Bacon, cat food(when the humans aren't looking)... well, pretty much anything edible(or not).

Favorite Walk:
It doesn't really matter.. I cant see anyway. Somewhere quiet or that smells good.

Best Tricks:
"Squirrel Honey, Squirrel!" She'll run to the door(usually hitting it if we don't warn her), all excited and ready to catch the squirrel. Even though she's blind. What devotion.

Arrival Story:
We got her from the ASPCA with her black lab sister, Molly, but Molly was a big bully to poor little puppy Honey, so we gave Molly to my horseback riding instructor at the time.

Honey is blind, has athritis, has diabetes, heart and kidney problems, and liver cancer... "WHAT?? Did you just tell them I'm HANDICAPPED?!?! They would'a never guessed if you'd just be quiet..." She was put down due to liver cancer recently but of course still lives on in our hearts and everyone around us' hearts. She was loved by everyone.

Forums Motto:
I don't act my age.

The Last Forum I Posted In:
It's nicer here. I've meet a lot of friends...

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?

Today I went to the vet for one of those "glucose curves" again. They said everything was perfect. But the two older humans that own me, Plear (my translator)'s parents, kept saying that I wasn't acting normal... so we did a few more tests then normal.

I admit I have been feeling a little bad lately.. mainly in my stomach area. So I've just been laying around, instead of following Plear's mom around the kitchen or rolling around outside while the kids play.

Anyway... the humans did an x-ray on my tummy. And they kept saying something about my liver... and Plear's mom was crying. Then they said they thought it was liver cancer.

I dont think I know what liver cancer is, but I know it's bad. It hasn't really hurt me... today my stomach stopped hurting and I trotted around again. So it might not be that bad.

Wish me luck with this new "liver cancer" thing...


Lots and lots of friends!!

Wow, today is only our second day on Dogster and lookit how many friends I've gotten!! Everyone knows everybody loves a blind dog ;) Of course, I'm just special like that and everybody wants to be my friend!!! I got lots more pup pal requests than Dixie and Cassie. Old dogs rule!!, and that proves it! Thanks to everyone who gave me a request!!

Also, I'd like to introduce my best buddy Ritts' Lady Dottie!!!

She gave me my first star ever, so I gave her her first star too! We are best buds because she had a friend like me that was blind named Trouble. Thanks for being my friend Dottie!!!!!!!

In other news, it's really stormy today so I got scared last night and decided to sleep with Plear and the other doggies instead of on either of my own beds in the Living Room or the Master Bedroom with Plear's parents. And this morning it was really bad too - there was really loud thunder, and blind dogs hear better so it was REALL REALLY loud for me!!! But now it's passed, that's good. I'm very afraid of thunder storms and rain.

Thanks for reading the first entry of my diary!! Woof!
