   Leave a bone for Smoky 8/29/03-4/15/13


Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

August 29th 2003

running and wrestling

her ears and paws--she doesn't like them touched

Favorite Toy:
laser pointers and balls

Favorite Food:
anything that isn't nailed down

Favorite Walk:
anywhere she can reach

Best Tricks:
Countersurfing without letting her nails click and give her away! She's only ever been caught once, and that's because I happened to walk by while she was balanced on her hind legs!

Arrival Story:
We had just lost Smoky I and Bandit I, and I was devastated, so my other half decided to get me another dog. We saw a lady with an adorable puppy, and he asked her where she had gotten it. We were given the phone number of the woman, and when we called, she said she had three pups left. By the time we got there, she only had two. We took that as a sign that we were meant to have them both, and they've been with us ever since, through about 7 moves to various places!

Smoky knew I was pregnant before I did! She used to stand on my stomach for attention. When I got pregnant, she stopped doing that and started sniffing at my stomach. Then she would lay across it, distributing her weight so she could get attention without crushing the baby. The first time we took the baby for a checkup, Smoky flat out panicked because we took the "hairless puppy" away from her for hours!

Forums Motto:
Ball--ball--ball--where's the ball?!

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Feed Merrick? May want to reconsider....

The story behind my name:
She looks just like her predecessor with the same name. She and her sister Bandit were born on the same day that Smoky I and Bandit I died. You can't have Smoky without Bandit, so there it was.

I've Been On Dogster Since:
February 10th 2007 More than 10 years!

Smoky\'s Life

We have a new brother!

And boy, is he pretty! He got here last Saturday night, and brought a friend with him to visit for awhile. My new brother is Thor, and his friend is Wolfie. I'm used to being the biggest dog in the house, but Thor is bigger than I am. I was nervous at first. Not at my brother, but at my mom. I didn't want her to replace me or my sisters, but she gave us lots of hugs and kisses and reassured us that we aren't going anywhere. That's good! Thor is nice, but it would have hurt my feelings if mom loved him better than me.

Wolfie's nice too, but mom won't let any of us sleep with her while he's here. She says she can't leave him in his crate while we sleep on the bed because it's not fair, and she can't have him sleep on the bed too, because he might get used to it and then maybe not be allowed to do it with his own family. So while he's here, everyone sleeps in their crates. I hate that part, but I guess I just have to take the bad with the good!

Mommy bought us toys today! It's been a long time since she bought us toys, almost since our two leg sister was born. It's okay, though. Mommy lets us play with her and our human sister, so it works out. But the toys she bought today she says are called Kongs. One's really squeaky and loud, and that one's MINE!! I LUUUUUUUUUVVVV squeaky toys. The others are the kind that she puts treats in and we have to get them out. Those are driving us crazy, and my sister Bandit keeps stealing them all and keeping them herself. But she hasn't gotten the treats out either, so ha ha!


Isn't our two leg sister cute??

We finally made mommy put up a picture of herself and our two leg sister, Avi. Isn't Avi cute? We think mommy is too, but she thinks she's fat. Humans are weird that way.

Avi really loves us. Every time she eats, she saves food just for us! In the morning it's usually cereal, but we eat it anyway because she was kind enough to put it down for us. Then whatever she has for lunch and dinner. Our favorites are...well, actually, everything is our favorite! We're not picky!

Sometimes Avi will share her snacks with us too. She thinks it's fun. And sometimes she'll take food of f mommy's plate and convince her she wants it, then she climbs down and brings it straight to us! Mommy will let her do it once for each of us before she makes Avi stop. She says it's to be fair, so that no one gets jealous of anybody else. I guess that makes sense!
