Playing!! (and then snuggling when I'm really tired, I make the best cuddler)

When my mom has to go somewhere and I can't go too! And when she won't let me chase after geese!! One of these days I'm really going to catch one.

Favorite Toy:
All my training dummies, my Dokken DFT, my oversized tennis ball and my mom's frisbee!

Favorite Food:
Bully sticks... okay not really food, more like treats. I do love my Blue Buffalo Wilderness!! Mmmmm :)

Favorite Walk:
To the lake! Or to the coffee shop that keeps treats under the counter just for me! They love me there :)

Best Tricks:
The "please take me with you don't leave me here alone" face. Works every time.

Arrival Story:
Dodger was a foster dog at the kennel I work at. He was there for a total of one day before I knew we were meant to be best friends. He's been my sidekick ever since. As for his name.... he was originally found in a big field in Iowa, AC picked him up, nobody claimed this big beauty, so he was set to be put down. But then the awesome people at People for Pets thought "NO WAY" he's too perfect. PfP works with with the amazing rescue organization Pet Haven here in the Twin Cities and that's how "Rocky" came to be here. Now, his name... the city they picked him up in is Spencer and he truly is a little Artful Dodger (as in Oliver Twist..). And hence.. his name.

I live in Minneapolis with my mom while she is at school! I love my brothers back home and cannot wait to go play with them again! Some fun facts about me.... 1. I'm a dock jumper! It's so fun! Right now I have my NJ-R title. I've also been the DockDogs National Championship two years in a row! 2. I'm a registered Delta therapy dog, and I do the R.E.A.D. program at my local library. I love the kids (and they love me!!!)!! 3. I was in a commercial... check it out! sjbE 4. I've started training in agility! I love it and shake the tunnel like a hurricane! 5. I'm the world's best snuggler. 6. I have a rather large head. It's because my brain is so big ;) 7. I'm also training in flyball, so far I'd say I'm pretty good!! I just need to move a little faster on that silly box. All I want to do is run and run with that tennis ball!! 8. I was one of the dogs featured in Pet Haven's annual pet fashion show this year! I went as a Viking's player and a Viking's cheerleader walked my down the runway! It was pretty cute!
