Arrival Story: I was born to Bonita (Spanish for Pretty) and had 14 brothers and sisters. I first met my new family when I was 8 weeks old. I tried to get their attention when they came to take a look at us by playing and nibbling on them. I think I really hit it and made them fall for me because 2 weeks later they took me to my new home where I met Bela, the dalmatian who lived there.
We became good friends, when I was a puppy I used to climb on top of her, these days she can easily fit under me.
As time went by I became the center of the family because, you know, after all I'm still a pampered baby. I went to puppy class and to basic training thus I learned to be well-behaved, still I just don't get the Danes who do agility, I could never! I'm afraid of heights!
When I was 6 months old I had an accident and one of my paws got hurt, something to do with cat food and an old opened storage door... please don't ask for details! It took me one month to recover as I teared off my stitches a couple of times, they used to itch so much!!! Also had to wear an Elizabethan collar, I just hated it!
Lucky for me my mom & dad are fairly active people and I go running with mom as dad cycles along. I have made 19k on mountain track, Bela comes too and she tells me that while training for a marathon she ran with Mom up to 29k!! I hope she does another marathon soon, I just love to run!
We were really sad to learn that Dogster's community section, where we've kept our blogs for a long time (Tallulah is 8, and started her page when she was less than a year old) is closing down. Now, as dogs, we can only speculate as to the reasons. Dogster was a place where we could express ourselves to like-minded doggies (and their humans), and that was an important part of our dog-lives.
Hugely important events, such as the adoption of Aullido and Mathias, as well as devastating ones, like the passing of Aullido and Bela, as well as Talluhah's near-death experiences, were much better when shared with our friends, who gave us tremendous support and were always there to share our joy and ease our burdens.
We now "scramble" to collect contact information for our friends, knowing that friendships will endure and we will keep in touch. So let's leave it at that; social networks may come and go, but friendships will last, so let this be a "see you over there", rather than a "goodbye"!. Be seeing you!
P.S. We'll still check our paw mail in the coming weeks, so if you'd like to stay in touch with us, let us know so we can share contact details.
Hello! Winter finally came and we've been having a lot of fun playing in the snow and dealing with seasonal storms. I'm a big dog, but when I step in a snow bank and sink to the chest, I know it's really been snowing a lot.
Another thing that's happening is that I'm finding it harder to deal with the snow, the exercise and the cold. My humans have noticed I get really cranky when it's very cold and I have to go out (hey, you'd be cranky too if you had to go out on -20 degree cold!). Also, when I come back home I am very tired and sleep a lot. But hey, it's just that I'm not that young anymore; I'm doing my best to keep up. At least the humans realize that and try to keep my walks short. Still, it's so nice outside that I forget about the cold sometimes and want to stay there playing with snow and chasing squirrels!
Anyway, have a great holiday season and a good new year, hope to be reading about y'all here soon! Cheers!
