Arrival Story: Zipper was taken by Partners for Pets from a pound. He was dumped at 3 months of age at a kill shelter because he was not pure bread border collie. He has a sister dog that was adopted also :) If anyone knows of his sister dog who's adoptee name was Zappy at the time and she probably looks a lot like Zipper, we'd love to hear from her. Partners for Pets has a website and hosts dog adoptions every Saturday at various locations in St. Louis, MO.
Bio: Mom counted, I have 198 spots on me--someone asked.
Ready for Frisbee season number 2!! Last year I did ok as a first timer and finished in the top 4. I'm ready for the spring and look forward to catchin some discs here soon. If I'm lucky it will warm up enough I can go to the lake to swim, my second favorite thing to do after frisbee.
I also want to remind all other puppy dogs purebread or not to be checked for common breed diseases. When I was six months I was diagnosed with a rare bladder problem/deformity, normally found in females. 2 surgeries with two specially made clamps later and way to many doggy dollars I will almost be 100 percent cured for life. Stay healthy everyone! Woof!
I finally made it to Texas. What a long trip. It was like the usual fun car rides because I was packed in between boxes in mom's car. Although I did get the body pillow which I was thankful for. Half way through Louisiana Buddy decided to quit riding shotgun and crawled back there with me. Not enough space!! So when we stopped to tinkle at the Texas state line, my front legs had fallen asleep and I toppled out of the car, BOL. We got there very late after midnight, I wanted to play mom wanted to sleep--I was energized and ready to go after sleeping 9 hours straight. The next several days I was confused, not about peeing all over yard, but when my donut pillow, kennel, 17 tennis balls, 23 stuffed animals, 2 Frisbees, and 2 indestructible balls showed up things were back to normal as far as I was concerned.
Just felt the need to wish everyone a Happy Halloween! Big changes are about to occur. Buddy and I are moving to Texas, yee haw!! This is very exciting. One our new house is 3x times as big, our new yard is a whole lot bigger too. The coolest thing is there is a dog park 20 min away, which is better than no dog park at all. Mommy says the mesquitos aren't as bad like they are here. We're hoping for a change in my allergies too. Probably lots of funny new photos to come soon!
Next week we are going home to the grandpas and grandmas, hooray!! They like us more than mom, BOL! There is dog park there too, and I get see my cousin Kaya, she moved to New Jersey, but we get to bark on the phone at each other once a week--keepin in touch. Off to Petsmart with Mommy, yay!
Ack! I've been TAGGED by Webster (441532 ) so now I have to get my game on! What a blast... here are the rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!
So here are 7 facts about me:
1 - I'm overly needy.
2 - I play frisbee atleast 6 times a day, and jump in the air everytime, even though I am tall enough to catch it standing on the ground.
3 - When I take walks it is necessary to trample and pee on everyone's yard.
4 - My nickname the Ghost comes from the fact I am very good about sneaking up on people, turn around and poof there I am--then I'm gone!
5 - I love to eat yogurt more than anything!
6 - I have 198 spots.
7 - I believe children need to be herded.
Now its time for you dogs to TAG, get busy!
