My Mom and Dad. To snuggle with them. I also LOVE to have a new stuffie to make my baby. I carry it around and pretend it is a puppy.
Rain I'd rather let my bladder burst than to go out in the rain. And I DO NOT like to go out in the backyard with the other dogs...they are lowly peons...I am simply too dignified to be made to stoop so low.
I love all my stuffies. To me, they are my babies. Any doggie that evicerates stuffies, should be 'doggie arressted'!
Potato chips. Yep I know they are bad for me. But what dog can resist when dad shares?
Off leash on our property. Love it, love it love it! Mom and dad are with me and so is Tristi and I can sniff, sniff, sniff. Arrrroooo!!!
I give paw, sit, stay, the ususal. But what I really do well is LEAP and BOUNCE and JUMP and after that I can be an amazing snuggler! Woof!
Mom and I wrote in this place when I first came to Dogster a few years ago but I told her that I think we should change a couple of things. You know...it gets old after a while. BOL!
Here's how it happened that I came to be at my forever home:
My Laura (my fur 'less' sister) who is 26 human years old and still living with us...much to my mom's dismay...felt that she needed a doggie of her very own at age 20. Mom and Dad already had Zoe the Cairn Terrier, Tristan the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and Penny the Chocolate Lab. Well, Laura felt as if she should have her very own doggie to love and snuggle with. So, Mom and her went to the local shelter and looked and looked. Well, I was looking too. I stayed in the back of my kennel where they didn't see me right away because I was sizing them up. It almost cost me my whole, wonderful life with them because they were just about to leave, dogless, when I came to attention..zipped up to the front of the kennel...quick yipped out a feeble bark at them as they were walking by and looked up into their eyes to make eye contact. It's a good thing I did because right away they said, "We didn't see her in there. Can we take her out?" Hoo-Boy!!! Saved! That's all it took. I worked my magic after that. Laura sat on the ground outside and all I had to do was crawl into her lap, curl up and give her a few kisses. Yep. Easy as that. They were hooked. It's true that I was about half the weight that I am now and I went home with a terrible case of kennel cough, fleas and worms but hey!-I still had super-duper charm going on. Still do as a matter of fact.
But I have to tell you...Laura has moved on. Not out. But on. Mom, Dad and I are tight. Real tight. We have a connection like I never could have imagined having with ANY human, let alone TWO humans! The love going on and the loyalty with us is just fantastic. I hear Mom saying that that is how it goes with young people and dogs. Their dogs often go to their parents. And I'm just as happy that I did. Much more stability, let me tell you!
Penny and Zoe have now gone to the Rainbow Bridge and I have two new roomates. Tristan is still here and he is my best bud. The two new ones? Well, I'll have to get back to you on that one. Tootsie that Basset is okay I guess but Laura's new dog? She can go fly a kite...take a flying leap off a tall bridge...etc, etc.... You get the picture. And not because I'm jealous. She is just a brat and a land shark. *howl* Oh well....
Happy, Joyful, Bouncy-Life is Grand!

My West coast furball, muppetman, Jack went and tagged ME!! So now here I am trying to figure all of these shenanigans out!! It can sometimes be a little bit of a beweildering for an easy-going blonde like me!! BOL!!
Here are the rules!!
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged need to post the rules & their 7 pawsome facts in their Diary. Then they choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pawmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged
Here goes...the facts as my mom will tell them to you all...she knows me better than me as I am too busy having fun!
1. Honey Bun is a people dog...meaning that she never bonded with the other dogs in the house after we brought her home from the shelter 3 years ago. She only has eyes/nose/paws/heart/whole body for her humans. The other dogs could jump off a cliff and it would suit her just fine!
2. Her fluffy tail looks like it belongs to a different breed of dog. It waves like a gorgeous flag and is one of her signiture features. She carries it in such a way that it seems like she is saying, 'I am here!-Adore me now!".
3. She had a false pregnancy soon after she joined our family. She was competely distracted with it...going around whining and making nests in any kind of blankets or bedding that she could find. And the most intriguing part of it was that she picked out one particular stuffed animal and would hardly even put it down to eat! She defended it too by growling at anything that moved near it! This went on for 2 solid weeks! There is a picture of her with the stuffed animal in her pictures on Dogster.
4. Speaking of stuffed animals, she has a whole zoo full of them! They are her absolute favorite toy! She brings them to us at night while we are watching TV and cries and makes all sorts of noises until we throw it for her. And this goes on and on and on.......
5.She HATES, HATES, HATES, DESPISES going out to pee in the rain!!
6.She seems to know just when Laura gets home from work. She posts herself at the front window about 10 minutes beforehand! And then when Laura DOES get home...LOOKOUT!-IT'S CELEBRATION TIME!!!
7. Last but not least, Honey is the best snuggler of any dog I know! She can drape her body in such a way that it seems to almost melt right into a person! And then she just looks at you so adoringly! We have never known a dog like this before and probably never will again. She is such a delight.

Today was a good day like most everyday at my house! Zoe didn't even growl at me and that was a better-than good day for me! Woof! But Dog knows, she still might as the day isn't over yet! *Shiver* I am proud of me!! Aroooo!!! And I will tell you how it happened. Mom takes turns taking one of us furkids with her to get the mail and paper at the end of our long driveway. Well, today it was demon dog Zoe's turn. (You know what? She might be the alpha dog, but she really isn't a very nice alpha dog!) Anyway, mom put the leash on Zoe and that got all the rest of us kind of revved up and barking and jumping around. We like to make mom pay, after all! BOL! I don't think mom cared for that too much because she shooed us out the back door into our dog yard. All except Zoe, of course! Well, that little 12lb monster dog was acting so smug that I just about was busting into confettii with self-righteous anger!!! *GROWLLLLLL......* I just had to show mom and her both that I was special.
Mom and Zoe thought I was pretty darn special when they opened the front door 15 seconds after I was put out the back door in a fenced in, gated, locked dog yard and there I was in all my blonde glory sitting as proud as I could be on the FRONT PORCH!! BOL BOL BOL BOL!!!! Mom still hasn't figured out how I did it and I'm not telling! My secret, ha! ha!

Tristi was a pig. That's the only way it can be described. This is the second time he has given in to his greediness. The other time was at Halloween when Laura left her candy on her bedroom chair. THAT time, we didn't know what he did until later when Laura told mom that she saw Tristi eating her chocolate candy. But that night, OMD! Mom thought that Tristan was having a heart attack or heart failure of some sort because around 3 A.M., he started to pant like a prank phone caller and then he drank water like there was no tomorrow, all the while pacing around and around in circles. He just wouldn't settle down for nobody or nothin'! Just when Mom was thinking that she was going to be losing her baby of all furbabies and was getting ready to pack him into the car for the trip to the ER, Laura mentioned that he had been snarfing down her candy earlier. WELL!!!! Mom was just about to wring Laura's neck for not saying anything before! It turned out that that night, Tristi got away with just a bit of a bellyache and MAJOR sugar jitters! We all think that he gained a few pounds too! Hence the nickname, "Chunk-a-Muffin".
But last evening, the oh, so deceptively cute, little guy decided to pig out yet again! Mom found him draped over the arm of the sofa, his front feet on the end table, and his nose buried in the candy dish that was put out for Christmas! That stinker did it again! There he was surrounded by a cloud of colored foil, Reese's peanut butter cup papers, Peppermint Patty papers and Hershey Kiss papers. He had chocolate and foil glued to his tail and leg feathers. His breath smelled of Peppermint Patty and peanut butter combined! Was it our imagination, or did he look 5 pounds tubbier, too? One thing was for sure, he didn't seem to have any guilt about his crime, rather he acted quite smug. He hardly slept at all last night, mom said. She kept a close eye on him but was almost certain that he would be just fine today. Which he is! The thing with our fur-brother, Tristi, is, is that he is just so darn cute! No one, even me, (OR ZOE!) can become annoyed with him! BOL!
