Arrival Story:
Cheyenne was among a litter of puppies being given away at WalMart. She's now 1.5 years old, and has become very skittish around my toddler, who has entered the stage where she hits everything. Giving Cheyenne away is not something I want to do; however I don't want to take the chance of her biting my daughter. I am trying to keep them separated as much as possible, but accidents can happen. Chey would do very well in a home with older children who have already learned how to play gently with a dog. My daughter loves her dogs very much, but she is a toddler and is still learning. My other three dogs have a vast reservoir of patience, and are much bigger than Cheyenne; my daughter's antics don't bother them in the least. But as time goes on, Chey has become more and more nervous around the baby, and it's not fair to her to ask her to tolerate toddler behavior if it scares her. Other than that, she's a great dog, although a bit shy when first meeting someone. I'd like to try and find her a good home before it comes down to taking her to the shelter. She's available for adoption now, if anyone would be interested in giving her a home. UPDATE:Cheyenne was the youngest of our four dogs at 21 months old. She was half Chow Chow and half coyote, but despite being half feral, she managed to accept training in all areas but one. She was a very timid little girl, though very affectionate with adults once she got to know them. But with our toddler, she would growl. First we tried to work out the aggression with training, then we tried to find a new home for her, both with no success. Yesterday, she growled and snapped in our two year old daughter's direction, and that was the last straw. We took her down to our local Animal Control office, where she was humanely helped to the Bridge, and brought her home to be buried at the foot of the trees of the only home she ever knew. Despite her faults, we dearly loved her, and she will be dearly missed. Cheyenne: January 5, 2006 - October 16, 2007

One day she got loose from both her collar and the house, and when I called her back, my other half swore that she was a coyote, and was utterly shocked when he realized it really was Cheyenne!

We had company today!

Actually, our two-leg sister, Avalon, and mommy had company today. Mommy's friend Susan and her son Lateef came over to play. Mommy calls Lateef Avalon's boyfriend, whatever THAT means. Smoky and Bandit just jumped right in and played with the kids, but I was too scared. I met Susan and Lateef before, but I was still scared. They were nice to me anyway though. Lateef wanted to pet me, but I ran away from him, and his mommy told him to leave me alone. Maybe one day I won't be so shy. I used to be scared of Avalon too, but anytime Avi plays with me, mommy is right there to make sure we play nice, and that helps!


Spring is here!

It's finally getting warm outside again! Yes! Though I liked the snow when it snowed here a couple weeks ago. Wish it would do that again. But Mommy says this is only the second time she's seen snow here, and she's been here FOREVER! Long before I was born. That's a really long time.

I got in trouble again the other day. I chewed up the shoelaces in Mommy's sneaker, and chewed a collar into four pieces. I don't know why it's such a big deal. Nobody ever wore that collar anyway! As for the shoelaces, the shoes were on the floor! I thought I could have anything that was on the floor! Of course, I had to dig them out of the closet, and I'm not sure, but Mommy MIGHT have said the closet was off-limits...

She bought my sisters a bed for their crate, but she didn't buy me one. She said it was because I always chew up any bedding she puts in there for me. That's not fair! Besides, none of us sleeps in the crate at night anymore anyway. I sleep right next to Mommy on her bed! The only time we're in our crates is for dinner and if Mommy and Daddy aren't home. For some reason, they don't trust us to be loose in the house when they aren't here. I wonder if it has anything to do with what we did to the couch...?
