Quick Bio:

May 6th 2004

Cheese, when I can get it!

The squirrels! Oh, the squirrels! Someone handicraft me a doggie shotgun!

Favorite Toy:
The squirrels! Okay, I've never really caught one, but my Sonic the Hedgehog toy closely resembles them, and I imagine their guts are similar to his cotton stuffing.

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
To the bus stop!

Best Tricks:
I don't beg at the table, so they havn't gotten rid of me yet. My best trick is slapping sleeping people in the face. Heh heh heh.

Arrival Story:
I flew down from space and found my family in a parking lot. No one in my hometown claimed me for a solid month, so my current family keeps me. ;) I am a member of the US Volpino C lub! Anyone is welcome to join if they have a Volpino! Since Volpinos are so rare, it's important for our owners to communicate about health issues and such!

Volpino Italianos are very rare! Some bad, bad Pomeranian breeders buy Volpinos to try to breed fake white Pomeranians!! Pomeranian/Volpinos that don't look enough like white poms end up at the pound! If you see a Volpino or Volpino/Pom at an animal shelter in America that has been mistaken as a pom mutt, rescue it!

Forums Motto:
Let them have Cheese!

What's a Volpino??:
Volpino Italianos are an extremely rare breed. There are only about 500 in the world. They resemble little foxes, because they were bred down from foxes! They resemble a Pomeranian in coat, but their noses and legs are much longer, as is the length of their body. Little foxes!

Morning Patrol Report

Okay, today I was sniffing my was a crazy morning, so I didn't get to scratch first. So I'm sniffing around back there, frazzled because my sniff/scratch schedule has been thrown off, when I heard the front door. Our front door makes a very particular noise. I don't know about my beloved bald legged people, but it's very distinct to me.

Upon investigation, it looks like the kids are leaving for the 'bus stop'. That big yellow thing thinks it's got somethin on me, but I'll be barking at it come 11:30. It'll screech, hiss and then run away...just like always.

Squirrel update: 3 in the at the trunk. Across the street...reconnisance pending.
