The Vida, La Vida Loca, Vi, BooBoo,

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-pound dog

ACTION! She like going to the beach, doing agility, doing anything with clicker training, playing fetch with the chuck-it, climbing on people (my bad).

Anyone trying to steal her ball! Water spraying on the car in the self-serve car wash while she's inside.

Favorite Toy:
Ball! The Timberwolf ball above all. (but also very fond of Kong, Loopie, Big Toy, Puzzle Pup (a little less now with the head gone), and Chewie, and her Squirrel Jackpot at agility class)

Favorite Food:
RAW! Fresh figs for dessert. Homemade pumpkin pancakes. Coconut Oil with her meal. Learn more on her blog "La Vida Fresca" at

Favorite Walk:
Beach, but will take any other destination as a substitute

Best Tricks:
Going through the dog door while holding her tail in her mouth (watch the video on this page). The variation - going through the narrow passageway between the houses and out to the backyard - while holding her tail.

Arrival Story:
I got her from the county shelter in central San Diego. I passed her up the first time - all she did was YAPYAPYAP. I went back the next week and she Roooooed at me, then sat and stared. Wow! I was sure lucky to find her!

When asked what kind of dog she is I like to say "Shelterhund." She helps me with other dogs. She's helped a couple of young shelter puppies that needed to learn how to behave. She helps some of my training client's dogs - especially the shy ones that are uncomfortable at the dog park. She helps them negotiate with other dogs by stepping in to ward off the rude ones. It's amazing to watch.

Forums Motto:
Vida The Underutilized Wonder Dog.
