Quick Bio:

January 11th 2000

Retreiving her ball, Walking with her fur-friends, Digging at the beach with her ball, going in the car for visits, and when my mom comes home!

folding things - laundry racks, TV tables, etc., having her nails clipped and thunder! Oh yeah and baths...

Favorite Toy:
Hockey Ball, Glow Ball, Squeaky Tennis Ball, Bungy-cord Ball, Planet Dog Ball, Any other dog's ball....

Favorite Food:
My new diet of Cooked Food!, Peanut Butter, Cheese, Berries, Coffee (she has a quick tongue), and Anything from the Three Dog Bakery, especially the Lickety Split Ice Cream!

Favorite Walk:
The Beach is my fav! I also like anywhere there are trails/woods/water.

Best Tricks:
Speak (just ask her who let the dogs out!), Trade (Chessie negotiations instead of give or drop), Go to Sleep (we don't like dead dog!)

Arrival Story:
Jessie was a birthday present from my family. I met a Chessie pup a couple of years before my rescued Golden Retreiver died, and fell in love with the breed. This is the gift that keeps spending and spending...., but I cannot imagine life without her!

Jessie is a big bundle of energy & humour. She really is a smart-a_ _! She is spoiled sweet and we have lots of fun. She loves retreiving, swimming, and just having fun. She is a thief though, she loves to steal socks and guard them from the cats. She will "trade" the items she steals for a treat. She is a real negotiator! She is also a "leaner"..

Forums Motto:
I am my Mother's Hip!!

Wow! The winter flew by yeah! Spring is just around the corner, but the mud in the park is here already and the ice melted enough for me to decide to swim yesterday... I turned 10 in January. I feel great. My Mom has me on real cooked food now and I lOVE it! I cannot wait until meal time, I get so excited. My Mom says I am becoming a "crow" in my old age. Who's she calling old anyway? I can still beat those one year old Labs to the ball in the water!
They noticed a high liver value in my routine blood work last year and I had to get tested for Addison's disease (negative), had ultrasounds (liver looked fine), had prescriptions and I guess nothing worked. I am showing no symptoms of anything and the Vet said I could live to a ripe old age and nothing could happen, but Mom decided to take me to the Naturpathic Vet. I like that Vet she has me on cooked food yum, oh yeah and chinese herbals. We shall see if that works. I hope I am on cooked food forever!
Happy Spring! Sniffing & Swimming time!

It has been a cool wet summer so far. Yesterday was beautiful though and I got to go swimming almost all afternoon. Mom bought me a life jacket last summer. She says it is easier on my joints, and I am 9 1/2 going on 2! I was beating all of those 1 year old labs to the ball..
I also like to search the bottom of the lake for treasures, mostly sunken balls, I found 6 yesterday...
My health has been great! My knees are real good (touch wood). I had to have an ultrasound of my liver though because one liver value was elevated in my yearly blood work. There was no sign of disease, thank Dog! They have me on Milk Thistle, which is OK because I get the pills every night in peanut butter or cheese, yum.
Well have a great summer, I know I will Don't tell anyone, but I kind of like a cool summer, more energy...


Today I am 9!
