Best Tricks:
wowing everyone that meets him

Arrival Story:
as a youngster he was found abandoned in a park, starving. I believe that he belonged to a military guy who was called up and couldn't find a home for him. This is based on the strongly positive reactions he has to men in military clothing, like my nephew (who is currently in Baghdad). He was extremely well trained when I got him. He's the best dog I've ever had, and that's saying a lot. When he got over his separation anxiety, he smoothed out to be very placid and easy to get along with. He genuinely adores children. A three year old whom I know can walk Thor on a leash through the park and through the neighborhood and Thor will NEVER ONCE tug on that little guy.

Tough Year

We are missing Venus, who simply couldn't overcome the abuse she suffered before we took her in.

To add insult to injury, even though I HATE changes, we have moved to a new community. Lucky for me we are living with people who are CRAZY about me, and I get to help raise my niece!

A family friend asked why we named the puppy 'Is-Is', and her dad said, "Is-Is is gonna be Was-Was if she doesn't quit bugging Snoopy!"

So now we call Isis 'Was-Was' and even Wuzzy for short!

 

Missing the Bark Park

Hi Friends, Buddies & Pals!

I'm sorry that I've been missing you all at the bark park!

My new sister Venus is not doing very well, even if she is friendly and sweet!

It seems that her former owners broke her back and hip, and it didn't heal well. She is always in a LOT of pain.

We tried to bring her to the park a few times so she would be happy, but when we do she is laid up, almost completely crippled, for days. Once she gets better, we try again for a shorter time.

This time though, there were other dogs that didn't like her, or thought she was weak, and ran at her and bit her several times. So, she bit back and Mama was worried, so we left.

We are concerned that, as time goes on, when her pain gets worse and worse, that she won't be manageable.

Sometimes pain management helps her and sometimes it doesn't. Venus' future isn't clear, but what is clear is that she won't be going to the park anymore.

We love her, and we want her to be well and happy. Sometimes the damage people do to pets is just too great, and the tough decisions are left to others.

Venus was a breeder for a criminal puppy mill, with dogs who were bred and trained to fight each other, as far as we know. She was treated very badly, which is obvious and no secret.

We are hoping for a good outcome, but it has been tough going from the beginning.

I look forward to my own visits. I'll try to have enough fun for both Venus and me!

 

Mama is a Winner, and I'm the REASON!

Didn't have enough bully fans to take number one, but we got number 4 out of 110,000 pages, and mama made a great showing to come in the top 5 best pages in the world!

It seems that my fans wanted MY PAGE to be page of the year, but it wasn't even in the running, not until next year (I hope!)

We've moved to other issues, like poisoned Chinese foods...

Our sympathies to everyone who was lost to the poison. Mama said that with all the imported foods, it will happen more and more.

She's been writing letters. Are you?

Woofers!
