   Leave a bone for Hobo

Hobes, Klepto, Hobey

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Little Kids, he adores little kids.

Unchewed items, and when we're in the car he gets really mad if anyone's not in a car. Like pedestrians, or people on bikes or Motorcycles. He starts freaking out.

Favorite Toy:

Favorite Food:
Anything that's not dog related. He loves to steal food and as of late has developed a taste for Marinara.

Favorite Walk:
I work at a Landscape material company, and he loves to run around there.

Best Tricks:
Well, he doesn't do much of anything quite yet. He steals stuff all the time and he can open doors. I think he'll pick up more in time.

Arrival Story:
Hobo was picked up off the side of the road. I let a rescue I knew of in the area know that I had him. I received a call about a month later that a family claimed I had their puppy. I was heartbroken because we had fallen in love with him by this time. I asked if they had any proof of ownership, and they said yes, they had a breeders contract. I thought that was strange, because up till this time I had thought that Hobo was a mix, but turns out he was a Chinook. He had run off at 7 weeks and the people thought he would find his way back home on his own. They gave me his breeder's number (Presumably so that she could tell me what wonderful people they were.) and she informed me that they were in severe breach of their contract (She was to be alerted within 48 hours if anything happened to him) and told me to keep him, and I wouldn't have to pay anything unless I wanted his papers which I didn't. Everyone loves Hobo, even though he does have SA, so I take him to work with me where he thrives on all the attention he gets, which is good because at home, Princess Araby is the boss.

Even though he's young right now, my plans for Hobo are for him to take a therapy dog test when he's a year old. His love of children never ceases to amaze me, and while he isn't interested in agility like his sister, he is an active dog, but settles right down when he sees kids and will let them pull, poke and generally maul him and he sits there with an idiotic grin on his face. He comes to work with me and I get so many comments on him looking like a fox or a wolf, or a coyote. It gets old after a while, but the best ever was some guy saying he looked like a baby deer. Sorry, I'm just not seeing it. Hobo's first name came from him being picked up from the side of the road. His second name "Harley Earl" is from the car designer. Yeah we're GM freaks at my house. It was going to be "Hobo General Motors Jandak", but I kind of shut that one down. I'm so mean.

This weekend my mommy went on a trip. I hate when she goes on trips because Daddy just isn't as soft to cuddle with. When she came back she smelled funny. I went out in the yard with Araby and there was a PUPPY! Well Mommy says he's a puppy but he's almost as big as me. His name is Sanity. I was so happy! He loves to play, which is nice because Araby's a grouch and she won't play with me much anymore. Mommy says I have to be careful cuz he's just a baby, but he's tough, he can handle it. Mommies always worry. He has his OWN Dogster page and it has pictures of us playing on it. Go see him! He doesn't get a chance to get out much so he needs new friends!

Sunday me and Araby and my mommy got in the car and we drove for a LONG time. Mommy said we was going to Connecticut to see some doggies that can't hear and play wit dem. I's likes long car rides and I curled up in da seat and went to bed. When I woke up, we was at a dog park! We don't have any dog parks where we live so I was excited.

Araby and I went inside and I ran all around to see the other doggies. My Mommy's friend came and brought her doggies too. One of dem was Tenchi and he's a Great Dane. We played ALOT! We were there for a very long time and I played and played. There was another English Setter there (Like Araby) but she was an orange Belton. Her name was Lila and she was very pretty, and she runs FAST even though she can't hear!

I had lots of fun and I hope we go again (Mommy says not for a LONG time)


Boys don't need manicures!

Todaze, i gots my nails on my front feets clipped. I don't like having my nails cut, cuz I have to sits still. My daddys sick, so my Mommy had my Uncle Buggy hold me while she cutted dem. Unca Buggy isn't used to dogs, and he's afraid he's going to hurt me all the time, so I wiggles away from him alot. So Mommy got out da slip leash and said dat when I moved to "Pop" it. Unca Buggy isn't very good at popping da leash and he doesn't eben hold it tight. I rub m head up against him and the leash comes right off of my head! My mommy got Mad and finally she grabbed me and wrapped her one arm and her legs around me and cut my nails. Mommies take the fun outta everting.........
