   Leave a bone for Mason Layne

Booga Boy, Mace, little man, Mr Dribbles

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

He loves getting hugs and kisses. He can never get enough of them; car rides. People Food!!

The word No!, Anyone messing with my mom; Anyone who messed with his sister, Chyanne before she crossed the bridge; Sadie trying to bully her way into alpha position over him

Favorite Toy:
He loves to play with sister Maggie with her toys; Running and wrestling with his sister, Chyanne before she crossed the bridge; Any stuffie with a squeaker in it. Also loves rope toys.

Favorite Food:
I feed him Nutro Chicken Meal and Oatmeal for sensitive stomachs mixed with Premium Edge Chicken or Lamb; Sundays means a can of Merrick (chicken, duck, turkey based!!) mixed in... Treats are a must!!

Favorite Walk:
anywhere you can walk him

Best Tricks:
He can shake a paw but not on command. He uses his huge paw to get your attention so it is a bad habit we must break!

Arrival Story:
He is a dane I started fostering for the Mid Atlantic Great Dane Rescue league. He was surrendered by his owners for a better home (he came from a multi dog and multi cat home). I had volunteered for the Rescue league and impatiently could not wait to foster for them!! The director set us aside for Mason (then called something else) and once he was surrendered, he came to stay with us. __________________________________ ____ Update: 10/05 Mason is officially our family member. So no more foster homes for him ... ours was his first and last foster home. We are quite happy to have him as our kid. __________________________________ _____ We participate with MAGDRL for Great Dane Rescue and The Dane Train for transportation if needed in this area. Please support rescue in any means you can whether it be by fostering or donation of time, resources or money. Helping to save a life takes very little but gives them a lifetime! __________________________________ _____ Need a great alternative to kenneling when going out of town? Check out Shamrock Dog Sitter. You get to remain a loved member of a family in a home enviroment. Look mom! No kennels!!

He is a major lover and is the best dog. He has some minor items to overcome (properly walking on a lead, no jumping up to greet people, and no pawing for attention) but he is a fantastic example of a Great Dane. He actually has alot more bravery than most of them!! LOL He is a bed pig too!! Bad enough I have competition with the hubby and Shelby, the cocker ... now to add a 125 lb dane to the mix! Eye yi yi!

Forums Motto:

Subject: Family in desperate need
by Robyn Christensen (c) 1996

Help Urgently Required! Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for an exotic rare breed dog, we were finally notified by the breeder that at long last, our number has come up, and... WE'RE HAVING A PUPPY! We must IMMEDIATELY get rid of our children now, because we just KNOW how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be! Since our puppy will be arriving on Monday, we MUST place the children in new homes this weekend!!!

They are described as: One male, white, blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Name is Tommy. Temperament tested. Current on all shots. Tonsils removed already and very healthy condition! Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained and ets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little time and training, he will do well in a new home.

One female, strawberry blonde hair, green eyes. Three years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Her name is Mary. Temperament tested, but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy and happy (mostly.) Gets along well with little boys, but does not like to share toys. She is house trained, and would do best in a one child household.

We really LOVE our children, and want to do what is best for them. I hope you understand, that ours is a UNIQUE situation, and we have a real emergency here! They MUST be placed by Sunday night at the latest. I hear that in Tennessee there are bins where you can leave off strays...does anyone know if there is something like that around here for children?

My mommy thought this is good tips!

My mommy gets this e-letter from the ASPCA and they had these super good tips for all da woofers and parents out dere of us fur kids. She though she would post dem in our diaries in case someone needs to know dem. So here it goes!!

Attention, companion animal caretakers! The ASPCA would like to call your attention to these common-sense cautions that’ll help keep your pets safe and stress-free this time of year.

1. No tricks, no treats: That bowlful of candy is for trick-or-treaters, not for Scruffy and Fluffy. Chocolate in all forms can be very dangerous for dogs and cats, and tin foil and cellophane candy wrappers can be hazardous if swallowed. If you suspect your pet has ingested a potentially dangerous substance, please call your veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435.

2. Popular Halloween plants such as pumpkins and decorative corn are considered to be relatively nontoxic, yet they can produce gastrointestinal upset should pets ingest them. Intestinal blockage could even occur if large pieces are ingested.

3. Keep wires and cords from electric lights and other decorations out of reach of your pets. If chewed, your pet could experience damage to his mouth from shards of glass or plastic, or receive a possibly life-threatening electrical shock.

4. A carved pumpkin certainly is festive, but do exercise extreme caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pumpkin over and cause a fire. Curious kittens especially run the risk of getting burned or singed by candle flames.

5. Dress-up can be a big mess-up for some pets. Please don't put your dog or cat in a costume UNLESS you know he or she loves it (yup, a few pets are real hams!). For pets who prefer their “birthday suits,” however, wearing a costume can cause undue stress.

6. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn't annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal's movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe or bark. Keep a look out for small, dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces on the costume that your pet could choke on.

7. Take a closer look at your pet’s costume and make sure it does not obstruct her vision in any way. Even the sweetest animals can get snappy when they can't see.

8. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room during peak trick-or-treat visiting hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets.

9. When opening the door for trick-or-treaters, take care that your cat or dog doesn't dart outside.

10. IDs, please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and become lost, a collar and tags and/or a microchip increase the chances that he or she will be returned to you.

Hope dat every woofer has a happy howl-a-ween! Don't each so many goodies dat you gets an upset tummy!!

Mommy said dis was a cute story. And our kitty isn't quite as bad as da one in dis story!! She thinks she is a dog!! BOL

Where do pets come from?

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"

Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."

And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I d o, in spite of yourselves."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.
And it was a good animal.
And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, " I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him

And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them.
And they were comforted.
And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."

And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.
And Adam and Eve learned humility.
And they were greatly improved.
And God was pleased
And Dog was happy.

And Cat didn't give a s$*% one way or the other.

Thank goodness for kitties!! BOL
