I was born on February 22nd, 2007. My Mom's name is Raven (she's a beautiful black Standard Poodle) and Dad's name is Brutus (he is a very handsome Golden Retriever). I have 1 sister who is black like Mom (we were the only 2 girls) and I have 9 brothers, some who are black and some who are golden (like me).
When puppies are born their eyes are shut so I couldn't see Mom but I could smell her sweet, warm breath and I could feel her love as she gently cared for me. Life was simple, except for the 9 brothers thing, and all I concerned myself with was eating, sleeping and being with Mom. As my eyes started to open I realized that the world was a very big place and full of adventure.
Mom's human, Jasmine, helped Mom take care of all of us...not an easy thing to do with so many us! Puppies are eating and pooping machines! I liked Jasmine and her family and would have been content to live out my life right were I was.
One day Mom started explaining to us pups, that we were not going to live at Jasmine's home forever (exept my brother Chewy). That worried me a little, I couldn't imagine being with anyone else at their home, but Mom told me that there was someone out there who needed me...me? Yes you, she said. You were created to bring joy into someone's life. Who, I asked, who is this person who needs me? I don't know, but God knows and He will make it happen at just the right time. O.K, but this seems like far too big of a job for 1 tiny puppy, but Mom said it would all be fine.

One everning (March 20th, 2007, to be exact) all us pups had just had dinner and with full tummys we grouped up in little piles of sleeping puppies. I heard Mom's human, Jasmine's voice as she came up the stairs. There were 2 strange voices that I had never heard talking with her. Jasmine was telling the strangers that Raven (my Mom) only had 2 girls, 1 black and one golden as she was picking up puppies looking for us 2 girls...it's hard to tell just looking at a puppy's face! She found my sister first and heard the strangers saying how cute she was. Then Jasmine found me and the lady handed my sister to her husband so she could hold me. She cuddled me in her arms and I could her her heart beating. Funny, it felt good to be in her arms and I felt safe. Then I heard the words, "I want her, she is exactly what we have been looking for." The man put my sister down and held me, "yup, she's the one." The lady held me for a little while longer and then Jasmine put me down with the same little pile of puppies that I had been sleeping with. But I didn't lay down to sleep with them, I walked away from them, turned, and barked at the whole litter "I'm pick of the litter, did you guys here? I'm pick of the litter!" Jasmine and the two strangers left the room. I was so proud to be pick of the litter, but Mom came and told me that I needed to be a more humble puppy. All of her pups were special and I didn't need to be hurting anyone feelings with my bragging. O.K. I wouldn't talk about it, but in my heart, I knew I WAS THE PICK OF THE LITTER!!! Late that night, I went to Mom and asked "are these the people who need me?" "Yes" she said "these are the ones". "Why would they need me?' "I don't know, but they do, you are to go and live with them and they will love you and take good care of you." "But, I don't want to leave you and the family, I want to stay here!" "Don't worry, you will see that this is best, don't fret now go back to sleep." I fell back to sleep wondering how on earth could this be the best for me.

On April 8th, 2007, my one and only sister left with her new family. I cried as they drove away, this just seems so weird, some of my brothers were with new people too. It all just made me sad. Mom explained that they had gone to their forever homes and they would be well cared for and loved just like I would be when my forever parents picked me up. Boy, life can be tough for a puppy!

This is a game to help us all get to know each other.
The rules are simple, just state 7 facts about yourself and post them in your diary so we can all learn more about you. Then tag 7 pals, who have not yet been tagged, to continue the fun. Copy and send this note to let them know they've been tagged and to come and read our diary. Post the names of the pups you tagged in your diary so everyone will know. That’s it.
So come and read my seven facts, okay?
1. I burp sometimes after I eat, ok alot of time after I eat!
2. I got so excited one day when Mom said I could come sit on her lap that I tipped Mom, her chair and me backwards and we hit the floor hard. I guess I'm too big to be a lap dog (60+lbs) but I still love to sit on Moms lap, I'm just alot more careful now!
3. I like having my nails done
4. I love raw carrots
5. I don't know if I can swim, but I want to try it
6. I love to get in Mom & Dad's bed anytime I'm asked, but I really like it when we all (Mom, Dad, Kari human sis, and the 4 grandkids-Tiffani, Scotty, Daniel and Pammy all pile into their queen size bed and watch dvd's and eat snacks
7. I'm mean to my stuffed animals...they don't last long

Momma can't sleep again tonight...for that matter the last 48 hours. Too much on her mind, so I keep a watch on her up in the office. I can sleep pretty much any time, but not so with Momma. The new computer has allowed her to get back on Dogster. We really missed the pups we had gotten to know. But we're back and we are doing alot of catching up as well as making new friends. Flica' Mom, Pam (my Momma is a Pam too) helped her to change the background on my page. We've received lots of help from lots of pups and their family. I think that's what we missed the most about not being able to play...cry...or laugh with our "Dogster famiy". Folks who think about their pup or purrs as one of the family. Daddy brushed me for Momma last night cause her hand weren't working real good. So up on the grooming table I go so Dad can work on me without stooping over or sitting on the floor. I have a little secret...sometimes I get up on my grooming table and watch TV. Well I pray that today Momma can get some sleep and still get the cupcakes made for Daddy to take to work on Wednesday. Hmmm lemon cupcakes with lemon curd filling and lemon cream chees frosting. Makes my tummy growl just thinking about them. She gonna try making some orange ones too to see if it works good. Well only time and baking will tell.
Go to sleep Momma, I will be watching out for you and Daddy.

Well the day is ending and Momma couldn't bake her cupcakes for Daddy to take to work. Her foot hurt too much today so she had to stay of it. She's hoping for tomorrow, we'll see. We just hung out and watched old movies together. I'm sorry that she hurts bad sometime, but I do like snuggling up and watching movies. Tomorrow night is bath night...yeah. Mom says I'm getting a little ripe, hehehehe. That's ok I like bath night cause I get tons of attention. Thursday will be me and Mom grooming and I get to ride on my new grooming table. It's fun going up and down and it makes it alot easier for Mom too, so it's a win win. Sure hope Mom gets those cupcakes made...sometimes she lets me have a taste of the frosting, not alot but boy is it good.

Finally...Mom got her lemon cupcakes baked yesterday so Dad took them to work. Tonight she tried a new receipe...orange, they are good but Mom likes the lemon best, me? I'll have to sample several more before I will know hehehehe. Dad will take them for the folks at work tomorrow. Mom likes feeding people, Dad calls her a feeder! That's not so bad, I just happen to like to eat!
Mom talked with Grama today and found out that her doctor thinks she has lung cancer. They want to wait 6 months or so and just watch it. Mom's not happy with that whole wait thing. Cancer is not something to mess around with. It would be far better if they just checked it out, maybe it's not cancer. Mom always wants information, that way she knows which direction to fight. Not knowing will just knaw on both Grama & Grampa, but Mom let them know what she thought and now it's up to them. Mom will support them no matter what they choose to do. This time of year is hard on Mom well the whole family. Mom's brother died on the 4th of July when she was only 16. They were extremely close and she misses him even after all these years. Love never dies, thank the good Lord above. The last words he ever spoke to Mom was that he loved her and that would never change no matter what happen. It was as though he knew that he was going to die that day. Oh Lord how she misses him.
Dad is taking all of next week off and that makes all of us very happy. Nine days of having Dad here all day...YEA... It's a working vacation. They will be taking the old siding off, which takes longer than putting the new up. It's paper not wood and it does not come off easily. We live in western washington...rain all the time and they put paper siding on the house!!! Sometime you just have to wonder where people keep their brains! O well we will all 3 be together and that's what counts. Later this summer they need to put on new roofing...I wonder if they'll let me up on the roof. I swear if Dad says no because of the whole lack of thumb thing again I'll bark, loudly, stupid thumbs.
Well it looks like Mom's headed to bed so I'll go lay down next to her side of the bed and dream of cupcakes.

Mom & I are doin the "doodle dance"! Dad's on vacation for the next 9 days! We love hanin him home. We will be working on the siding but that's ok, the 3 of us always have fun. Dad's folks that he works with are sad cause Mom won't be using them a guniea pigs! She'll still work on reciepies but they won't be getting the food, darn guess I'll just have to step up and eat their share...hehehehe The next pictures of me will be chubby Dandi from 75lbs to 100 in just 9 days! Well Mom won't that happen, but a girl can dream :0)
Mom said so many of our buddies are have heat waves, I wish you could all come and spend the weather with me. We hardly ever get weather in the 90's but when we do it's not a dry heat it's real muggy and saps your energy. We'll be praying for all of our friends to be kept safe and sound. It reached 70 here today, but it was muggy cause our ground is still real wet.
Mom got so mad when she read The Scoop Rescuing Rosie that she cried hot tears, how can people do that to anything thats living. We sure are blessed by having the pawrents that we have.
Well Dad's cueing up a movie...I hope it's Homeward Bound, that one always makes the 3 of us cry at the end. We know that he's gonna make it home but still it gets to us!
Let the vaction begin.
