   Leave a bone for Jimmy

Jim, Jimbo, Skinny Jimmy, Sweet Baby James

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

Running up and down the mountains, looking for deer and squirrels!

Taking a bath. Jimmy doesn't think he needs them.

Favorite Toy:
Jimmy is just starting to learn about toys. He likes to carry around anything I give him; but when I call him to bring it back, he quickly drops it and runs right to me! Jimmy is very unselfish and so readily "hands over" anything instead of tugging

Favorite Food:
I've finally gotten Jimmy to enjoy food! I think he was a stray for too long because he couldn't eat much for a long time. He LOVES when I mix in Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul canned stinky stuff with his kibble.

Favorite Walk:
Jimmy loves walking anywhere, as long as it's with his family.

Best Tricks:
Jimmy is learning fast! He knows sit, shake, down, fetch, roll over, and he always comes when called.

Arrival Story:
A woman who worked at the animal shelter introduced me to Jimmy although I had gone to adopt a female puppy to be a companion for my male dog Eddie. Jimmy had been at the pound for over 3 months and always got overlooked, despite his sweet and friendly attitude. He was scheduled to be euthanized the next day. I found out he had been brought in as a stray and simply couldn't leave him behind without a second chance at a real life with a family of his own. At first I thought that I would just foster him until a good home came along, but he has fallen in love with his doggie brother and sister and with me, and we all feel the same about him. Jimmy will be staying with us!

Jimmy is obviously not only Australian Shepherd and Border Collie, but Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) as well, but I could choose only 2 breeds. Jimmy's an all-around herding dog!

I've Been On Dogster Since:

Well! I just found out about this diary thing and I think it's really cool! I think just about everything is cool! I am happy all the time as long as Mom is happy with me! And she is!

My mom says that I am a good boy and she is so glad that I have grown and become a REAL member of the family. I love having a real home instead of being out on the streets like I used to. I spent a long time in a place with a concrete floor and big tall walls to keep me in. I got really lonely there. But I hardly ever think about that now. Now I just like the easy life.

My favorite thing to do is run around the yard and chase my sister Frankie. Sometimes my momma takes me on a long long drive to some mountains and I get to run around up and down the mountains without a leash! And I get to chase deer and other critters!

Last time my momma got really angry at me because I ran up to some dogs to say hello and wouldn't come back. I tried to listen to her, but those dogs had something important to say so I HAD to go see them. Anyway she said NO MORE OFF LEASH FOR JIMMY! Oh no. Well I think she WILL let me do it again when we go back. She always laughs at me and is happy when I come back when she calls, which I ALWAYS do! Except that one time...

Well diary! I am happy but tired so I'm going to say goodbye for now.
