Arrival Story:
Otis came from the Vernon, Texas, rescue; they had picked him up after someone reported having seen him thrown from a truck window on the highway. About 8 months old at the time, Otis was the quiet one in the back of a cage full of yappy puppies. He had the most disdainful look, and I knew then he was the one for me! He came to me at a very difficult time in my life, and I've always believed that HE rescued ME! Everything changes with time, and now he's the BossDog with big responsibilities for a home and family, little brotherdog Tiny, and a monster yard full of rebel squirrels and birds!

...his full name is Otis Herman Rutherford Marie - Patricia, for short (long name, long dog, long story)...We don't know his real birthday, so we celebrate his gotcha day - June 15, 2000

Forums Motto:

Well, she hasn't really been gone anywhere, except to the hospital a couple of times, but hasn't felt like typing for me or Tiny for awhile. But she's feeling lots better now and so we're back with a doggie-vengeance! Watch out, Silly Sentence Game! It's sure good to see all your wunnerful faces again....


A Miracle!

In the spirit of our group Pawayer and Pawraise, please join me in giving silent thanks (or shout it out loud!!) that the wonderful angels over in Montague country rescued a major puppy mill - 500 dogs and one goose (?). Now you gotta understand that it's been up to 108 - 110 degrees every day, and I'm not going into the gory details of this situation (go to trnonline.com to search for the story) except to say that these people had been in this business for 30 years, had it "all figured out" by making the front part of the property look nice...but don't look behind the privacy fence...no water, etc. I can't stand to hardly think about it, but all the furguys are safe in Fort Worth now, getting medical attention, vaccincations, and getting reading for loving homes! Thank you Lord, St. Francis, and all the other heavenly and earthly angels who had a hand in this wonderful rescue! Amen.

And I got a yummy grape drink out of the deal, too!

First the Ice Cream Question:
What flavor of ice cream would I be?
Any flavor of Blue Bell, "the best ice cream in the world..."

Now the get to know your friends part.

Copy these questions into your diary and then tag 6 of your other friends.

1. What color is your collar? I have a very manly black leather collar with my name on it, made by a friend who Mom helps out by mailing his leather goods.
2. What kind of food do you eat? We're going through a food crisis, since I have severe itchies all the time - right now the Dick Van Patten food but that's about to change to ????
3. What are your favorite treats? Cheeeeeeese!
4. Do you have a Valentine or significant other? Yes, Miz Maggie, the farm girl from Ohio, who was my firstest real friend on Dogster.
5. Do you get Table Scraps? Yes I do. I always get a taste of what mom and dad are eating.
6. What is your favorite toy? My baby (who knew I had a maternal side?) is a stuffless stuffie that Miz Maggie sent me for Valentime. I carry it everywhere and run when somebody tries to take it from me.
7. When is your Birthday? I don't know, but mom and dad adopted me on June 15th. So that is my Gotcha day.
8. How many times a day do you get to eat? Once a day, except when I'm lucky and Mom gets up early she'll feed me kibble-and-cheese for breakfast.
9. What is your favorite color? What's a color?
10. Do you hope your friends will put this in their diaries? Yes, I do. I like to find out about all my pup pals.
