Best Tricks: Unscrewing the top on the grapefruit juice bottle -- then holding the bottle between his paws -- and DRINKING the grapefruit juice.
Arrival Story: Mommy and Daddy got involved BIG time in using the internet to rescue lost pets right after Hurricane Katrina in September 2005. They made a lot of friends in Louisiana while they were doing this -- they emailed one another and talked on the phone for hours. Then, Mommy and Daddy (and Hope and Shadow)spent the summer of 2006 in Louisiana working on Katrina recovery. They told me that even though their friends had told them how bad things STILL were, they were not prepared for the devastation that they saw -- almost one year later.
They had their motor home parked near an interstate highway (I-12 right near Baton Rouge), and people kept dropping off cats and dogs. Now this part I know for myself: this family that had my birth-mom didn't want her any more -- because she had me and three other puppies. They kept our daddy dog, but put our mom and the 4 of us in a car and drove us to this camp site -- and just pushed us out. Our dog mom and 2 sisters ran away, but me and my brother found these nice people who played with us and gave us dinner. Mommy and Daddy adopted me -- and a nice family from Texas adopted my brother. Everyone looked and looked for our mom and sisters. I pray for them every day that they found nice homes, too.
