August 3rd 2005

Cuddling and kissing! I also love wrestling with my brother Weasley, and I love going for walks with mommy! I really like children too, even if they come running up to me! I have to be all on my ma when I sleep, just to make sure she's still there!

My brother and I wrestle, but he usually wins! I don't like any animal, baby, and doorbell noises either. I get terribly carsick, but I pretend to love it so I can be with my mommy!

Favorite Toy:
Shoes...I love shoes! I also love chewies...mmmm...chewies! I also love it when ma puts a treat in my square Kong!

Favorite Food:
Mmm..Nature's Recipe is so tasty! I inhale it within seconds! I also like Dorrito's too.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere and anytime! I love to mark every single tree or post!

Best Tricks:
So far, I can sit and stay and give kisses on command...but I don't really need a command to do that.

Arrival Story:
I was found running along the pine trees outside of an office building in Texas. Someone brought me to the pound and a rescue agency (Lone Star Shih-Tzu/Lhasa Apso Rescue) came in and took me (not sure how long I was there, but it was horrible!). I traveled by car all the way to Arizona (I was great in the car, I'm told) and it was love at first sight for me when I met my new mom (and for her too). She saw me the first morning I arrived, and I had to climb on her lap and give her lots of kisses. I haven't stopped.

I think I'm about a year and a half right now. My mom says I'm the sweetest dog and I do love my four legged brother. I always have to cuddle with mom, no matter where I follow her. I am called "Velcro Piner." I am so good about telling mommy if I'm about to get sick and can hold it til she get's me outside or on the tile! :) I'm such a good boy!

Forums Motto:
Mmm...I love me some shoes!

Maybe it's because I'm cute? Maybe it's because I give kisses? Maybe it's because I have these beautiful almond-shaped amber eyes? Ah well, it doesn't matter why - the fact is, I'm getting chunky! I used to make fun of my bro Weasley because he was just plain fat (I know, I was pretty bad!), but now I find myself in the same situation. Not sure why, since I eat pretty healthy, with no table scraps except for small pieces of Dorrito's (mmmm...). I think it may be because I sleep a lot, and also because my ma is afraid to walk me. She says there are a lot of loose dogs (pit bulls, as well as coyotes, she says) that people let run free in my neighborhood. She is afraid I will get hurt while walking on a leash with her. She is starting to walk me again, which I LOVVVVEEE! I have to be patient as she walks Weasley first, because he is my big bro. I'm hoping I lose at least 2-3 pounds! Keep your fingers crossed!

Boy, was I sick!

It must've been something I ate! I fell asleep with my mom and brother about 8pm last night, and for some reason, my tummy felt wierd! Sure enough, an hour later I got so ill, ALL OVER MOMMY'S BED!! Well, not entirely true...all over the bed, the bed frame, the bed rails, the carpet. Boy, I was not kidding at how sick I became! Mom is suspicious if the can of Science Diet was bad, and she tossed it out, but she is watching me to see if I feel worse later. So far this morning, I've been chasing after my brother and begging for food, so I think I'm all better! My mom must have such patience to clean up all the mess I made! It's 'cause I'm her little angel (or devil, as it depends on my behavior at the time) : )


Such loud noises!

For some reason, I'm not a fan of loud noises...especially if they come from the big box, also known as the television set. When mom channel surfs and I happen to hear horses whinny, or a baby crying, this upsets me! I go right up to the big box and bark at it. Of course, then it stops (I think my mom changes the channel).
Sometimes I see mom scream at the big box...usually when the Broncos are playing. This happens to upset me, because I really think she's upset (and she's not, because the Broncos are a good scoring team!) and I want to make things better. I hope my licking and cuddling makes everything better! That is what I do best! Well, except when I'm chasing my brother Weasley through the house (he annoys me sometimes!).
