   Leave a bone for Kira's Little Rascal

Puppycat, Poppet, Buppy, Pudders

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

January 26th 2002

Her mom, beep ball, kong treat ball, dog parks, long walks

Being left at home, other dogs on her turf, people who try to grab her

Favorite Toy:
New favorite is a plush dog with tug ropes on either side of the head. It barks when she bites down on it.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
Private park behind our home.

Best Tricks:
Not exactly a trick, but she 'giggles' when she's tickled. It sounds almost human. Lately, she's added dance, crawl, sit pretty, and dead dog.

Arrival Story:
Rascal was born with what her breeder believed was a broken tail that doesn't make the usual tight curl. I got her through an all breed rescue group when they learned she was going to be euthanized for this defect. Come to find out, it isn't a broken's a sickle tail. A trait listed as HIGHLY prized (their emphasis) at the National Shiba Inu Club site. Huh. Personally, I don't care. I do think her breeder needs to be forbidden to have a dog. My furbaby is loved for all her traits, both good and bad.

This is the hard-luck kid you love. She had two extensive orthopedic surgeries that took a total of 12 months out of her life, being locked up in a single room and limited to very short on lead walks while her leg healed Another 6 months of rehab after that. And now, in March 2007, another surgery. This time on her lright eye, for acute angle glaucoma. It didn't work and now she's completely blind. However, she's adjusting extremely well and her personality has not changed.

Forums Motto:

I had to get permission from Rascal, of course, but I had to say how much I appreciate all the comments about my little girl. The Rosettes and mail touch my heart. Rascal is a brave little warrior. Her life has been full of pain, yet she stays happy and loving. I wish that I could have half her courage. She's only five years old and I look forward to having her sweet little self in my life for many more years.

Thank you all.


WOW - This is great!

I got so many requests from new friends that I don't think I can answer them all one by one, so I'll just say THANKS!

I'm so excited to have "Dairy of the Day' I've been running Shiba 500's all over the house. I love having all the new pals and everybody saying nice things to me.

This is a wonderful day to be me.

Ok, so Mom finally took a picture of me and Jazz together. Can you believe it, I actually fell asleep on the same bed with that cat. Course, it helped that I was already sound asleep when he jumped on the bed. Mom was scrunched up between us and, when she found out I hadn't awakened to run Jazz off she made a desperate run for the camera. This was the only shot she got. I woke up, smelled the cat and, well, end of that story.

I'm doing just fine. Not hurting hardly ever now. I get a people pain killer, Ultram, when my eye does hurt. I let Mom know by rubbing it and she makes the pain go away. Good Mom, I think I'll keep her.
