Arrival Story: Tidbit was our first dog. She was a Christmas pressie chosen by my friend. My friend wanted to get a Chihuahua and originally went to a local breeder to get one for herself. When I saw the little dog that she got, I thought she was adorable(much to my surprise seeing how I was a big dog lover and planned on getting a Dobie at the time). She saw how much I liked her dog and she went back to the breeder without me. The breeder only had one dog left by the time she went back. The dog was huge(moose of the litter---imagine my shock when the vet told me she was only 6 1/2 weeks old---much too young to be taken away from her mom! The breeder pretended she was older so no one would know it was just a large puppy who would grow to be a large Chi). Well, when I called my friend the next morning to see her dog, she told me to come right over. While I was holding her dog, she went into the next room to get something. When she came back, she said, 'Hey. I'll trade you.' and handed Tidbit to me. I was surprised and asked her who's dog she was and my friend answered, "She's your dog!" I was shocked and honestly did not know what to say, but I thanked her and brought her home with me. I nicknamed her "Bump on a log" at first because Tidbit would just sit there and do nothing. I tried to find another home for her. I didn't realize that she was just settling in at first. By the end of the week, she was full of energy scaling the dog gate and attacking her toys left and right. She was giving kisses and learning commands quickly. I soon fell in love with her and knew that she would be my baby for life. Everyday, I look into her sweet face, tell her how much I love her, and think about how lucky I am to have her.
Bio: Tidbit is the sweetest dog ever. She's very loyal and smart, too. She gets jealous easily and will beg for human food in the sweetest way(she'll stand up on her hind legs and rest her little head on your lap patiently). She was the biggest dog in her litter, but she thinks she's tiny. She likes to steal socks out of the laundry basket and rip paper into shreds.
Things I do when I am bored: Pull all the blankies off the dog beds and my parents' bed if I can get away with it, Shred any paper I can reach, pull towels and socks out of the laundry and hide them in my crate, chew on my nylabone or my orange bear's armpit
Words that get my attention: "Hungry?"(I run to my dog bowl then to the area where the dog food is kept.), "What do you want?"(I run to the treat area.), "Treat"(I run to the treat area.),"Go fetch your orange bear."(I will get my orange bear and growl at you until you either chase me or play with me), "What are you doing crazers? Give me back my sock!"(This translates to me keeping the sock and hiding it in my crate.)
There is a new craze on Dogster called "You Are Loved".
You need to pick 3 Dogsters who you think are fantastic and tell why you feel they are pawesome. Be sure and tell them how much they are loved with a p-mail or a rosette.
I was picked by my cutie patootie palerooni, Gadgit! *hugggies*
It's hard to pick only 3, but here goes....
#1 Gizmo because he is such an adorable pup who is fun to talk to. He knows what it's like to have to share things with your sister. He and I have a lot in common, too!
#2 Brutus is a good dear friend of mine. We've been everything from best friends to girlfriend-boyfriend back to friends again! BOL! We've managed to stay super good friends through it all!
#3 Birdie has been my biggest backup when it comes to my annoying lil sis, Mugsy. Birdie always has my back and expresses her sympathy for how mean my bossy lil sis is! It's good to have someone on *my* side! BOL!
There are more pawesome pups out there that I wish I could have picked. It's so hard to pick just 3! Big hugs to all my friends! :) You are all loved!
I've been tagged by my pals, Baxter, Jazz, and Emma!
Here's how it works!
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary and send them a fun Rosette or lots of bones announcing they've been Tagged!
1. I beg in the sweetest way for food. I get up on my tippy toes, rest my head on my mommy's lap, and look up at her with my big brown eyes.
2. I don't like to get my feet wet so I will only wear shoes if it is muddy or really wet outside.
3. I respond crazily to the words, HUNGRY, TREAT, and DO YOU WANT TO GO FOR A RIDE?
4. My little sister, Mugsy, annoys me more than you will ever know.
5. I love to steal things from the laundry especially socks. I will steal socks off your feet, too. BOL!
6. I like to sleep with my head on the pillow and I will kick and push you out of my way if you don't accomodate me.
7. I like to drag my favorite things into my crate where no one else is allowed. Currently in my crate, I have a toy cigar, small squeaky cat toy, one sock, daddy's old tee shirt, my blankie, and 2 bullysticks. Keep out of my crate!
I've had a lot of new things to eat this month. First, I was introduced to raw in the form of rabbit medallions. I didn't like it at first because it doesn't have a scent at all. Soon, I discovered how yummy the medallions were and they didn't last long in my bowl after that. Well, today I had another new discovery...a raw chicken drumstick. At first, I sorta just licked it. Then, I picked it up and dropped it again. Then, daddy pulled the skin off for me and pulled back a bit of the meat. OMD! I went crazy after that! I ripped, pulled, and gnawed at it. It was sooo good! I had to keep an eye on Mugsy, though, because she was having probs with her dinky wing and she kept eyeing my drumstick. Daddy looked like he was getting hungry, too, so I kept moving it away from him so he wouldn't get any ideas. A fly buzzed dangerously close, but I growled at it and it went away. Mommy laughed at me then. I didn't think it was funny, though. The funnest part to eat was the bone. It crunched up like a biscuit! Mmmm...the marrow was so yummy, too! That was the best meal ever! I can't wait to get another one!
