Likes: Cuddly time and Squirrels!? Did you say squirrel??? Where?? Woof!
Pet-Peeves: When it's time to come inside and stop playing with the squirrels.
Favorite Toy: Teddy bear!
Favorite Food: CHEEEEEEESE
Favorite Walk: Down the sidewalk onto the grass! Oh yea and wherever there are squirrels!
Best Tricks: Fetch! Sit! Always responds to his name (unless there is a squirrel in the vicinity), "Come", "No", more updates later! He learns so quickly!
Arrival Story: Trooper is everything his name stands for. Just a little while ago Trooper was found walking along by himself by a levee. A nice neighbor spotted him and took him home. Unfortunately, soon after Trooper got into a fight with a CHOW!!! Yes, a Chow. Yes, a dog 100x bigger than Trooper. Trooper did his best but emerged with so many cuts and bruises and other issues that the nice neighbor just couldn't take care of him. So the Animal Rescue Foundation of Lafayette took him in and had him stitched up! Little Troopie had stitches all over his hindquarters, has scratches on his face and had heartworm. Troopie now has a loving home!
Bio: Troopie is the sweetest little poochie you will ever meet and cuddle with! He is extremely loyal, always answers when called, follows me all around the house just to see what I'm up to, and loves to sleep in my lap in the evenings.
I'VE BEEN ADOPTED! =) YAY! WOOF! Adopting a rescued dog will be the best decision you have ever made. They are naturally grateful for a home and love. They know that they were saved by you and show it by bestowing on you endless affection and loyalty.
Dogster wanted you to know that Trooper! is one of today's featured diaries and it will be displayed all day on our Diary Central page at http://www.dogster.com/diary/dcentral.php under 'Today's Picks'.

Thanks so much for running with the Dogster pack and keeping a diary.
Yay - i knew my squirrel stories would make big news! woofie!

Yup - i ate something. I was munching it when she saw me and tried to catch me before I swallowed it - but... too late!! hee hee! gulp! yummmers.
I will never tell what it was.... heh heh troopie's secret.
