March 3rd 2004

Rawhide and Pigskin! Rawhide and Pigskin! Oh! and tug of war, love to pull mom around. Like to lay in bed with mom and dad and sometimes Bash. Love mom's truck. Truck means walk.

Sometimes I don't like other dogs, especially short haired dogs, don't know why. Like furry long hair dogs like me. Think I need to protect mom and dad, am good around dogs when mom and dad not there.

Favorite Toy:
Mom got me a big rag toy with a handle that's Y-shaped already destroyed one. Love tennis balls in socks, cool toy. Scared of squeaky toys, why toys squeak?

Favorite Food:
Anything I'm eating, pistachios, peanutbutter, beef snacks, popcorn

Favorite Walk:
We walk about 3 or 4 miles a day, keep mom in shape, sniff trees, lots of trees to sniff. Need to pee on trees too, try to pee on every tree, mom gets annoyed when I try to pee on every tree.

Best Tricks:
I know what "walk, outside, and bub-bye" mean! I'm a good and dad have to spell those words, trying to learn how to and dad you just wait til I can spell!

Arrival Story:
We found him at a shelter in Utah that showcases different dogs from different humane societies around Utah. The location is actually in mall and it's not nearly as traumatizing as going to the Humane Society can be. My husband found him and we were able to take him home that day for a 3 day overnight trial. He was and has been the best dog ever, when we went back to adopt him we were shocked that he had been "overnighted" several times during a total humane society stay of three months. We can only figure that he was returned because of his size, he's beautiful and sweet and a goof.

I like my brother bastian, he's smaller than me by SIX pounds! Puny! I really love mom and dad, they took me home when I had been returned to the *shudder* shelter five times. I LOVE ducks! Ducks and seagulls and birds in the backyard on the birdfeeder! Mom has to really pay attention to me because I can spot and track birds in the sky and sometimes I try to catch them...not sure about cats. Cats are small dogs that don't bark? Got hissed at by a cat, couldn't get it because it was under a car, show him who hisses maybe someday....think I like cats. Like grandma and grandpa, they give me treats and take me for walks when they visit, walks are are treats. OH, and I love the truck, truck is how we get to go on walks...LOOOVE truck....need a nap now.....
