Moke, Butthead

Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

Chasing (and catching squirrels), and talking to us Row wow wow

He couldn't see well, so startled easily; baths, someone going out ahead of him, being touched near his stomach

Favorite Toy:
Rope/Tug toys

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, Smokie loved to walk and he always had to put his nose in my hand, as if to make sure I was still there

Best Tricks:
At 90 pounds, this dog could sit up like a squirrel for long periods of time

Arrival Story:
He was found on the streets of Oakland...everyone decided that since we already had 2 dogs, what was one more. He looked like a little black bear with a grizzly attitude; covered with fleas, starved and abused. Totally alpha male, but I loved him like crazy.

Smokie suffered an aneurism or brain tumor in March of 2003-he went from alpha male and active to 80% paralyzed in less than 48 hours. The vet felt that there was no hope to reverse the paralysis and it was progressing with bladder/bowel loss- we made the decision to put him down when we saw how he was suffering =- { I've missed him so much
