March 25th 2005

Sleeping on the couch, playing tug of war or wrasslin' with my sister Doodle, shredding up kleenex/napkins, rawhides, special doggy treats, jumping on my grandmom's bed when she visits and rolling all over her pillows!!

Mama pestering me trying to give me kisses; trying to be held; having mom come at me to clean my ears...I HATE THAT!! and I hate Hot weather too...

Favorite Toy:
all my stuffys, anything Doodle has, hard rubber toys I can't tear up

Favorite Food:
Purina One

Favorite Walk:
Around the back yard and in the house.

Best Tricks:
I can pee on command; I can go to bed when mama says "Go lay down"; I know exactly where to stand in the kitchen and how to look cute (ok, cuter than normal) to make mama give me treats. (It works EVERY time) ;o)

Arrival Story:
My mama got me from North American Shar Pei Rescue. She had a Shar Pei before, and just loved his personality, she thought my Weimaraner sister, Doodle needed another playmate, so she adopted me for her. I love my mama and pestering my sister.

I came from a foster home in Galveston, TX. The mean people who first had me hoarded animals and kept me in a place with no lights or windows. Needless to say, I was very skittish at first, but over time I'm warming up to people. I HATE summers in Texas..they're just too hot for me...I love being in the air conditioning and under the ceiling fan. Mom says I'm a couch potato--whatever that is??!! But I'm a cute couch potato!

Forums Motto:
Cutest Boy in the World

On June 1st it was our 8th anniversary here at Dogster. Mom remembered before the date then forgot about it. Oh well...she's getting old. BOL

We have enjoyed our years here at Dogster and have made lots of friends (both four legged and two legged) that we will treasure forever! Here's to 8 more years!!

I can't believe Doo has been gone a year today. I miss her and wish she was still here, but I can feel her presence all around me and she's always in my heart where she'll live forever. Run free Sweet Doo. I love you!

And yesterday mom took Dee to her new home. Mom and her BFF drove half way to Dallas to meet up Dee's new mom. There was a little hesitation getting Dee in her new mom's car, but she eventually jumped right in and her new mom said she's adjusting nicely in her new home. She'll be an only dog and meeting new people all the time (the lady does massage therapy out of her home) and getting to go to the dog park. I know she'll be happy there. Enjoy your new life Dee!

Austin's mom here...

Austin has been kinda like gagging every once in awhile. I mentioned it to the vet when she was here last month and she said if it continues we would do x-rays to see if maybe he had a collapsed trachea. The mobile vet just left...she took 3 x-rays and he has a tumor about the size of your fist by his heart. She said its either that or a congenital hernia. She's sending the x-rays to be read by an x-ray tech and she'll let me know. She said if I wanted to treat it she'll give me a referral to the speciality clinic (where I took Doo for all her procedures.) At this time, I've opted not to do anything. He's 10 and its very stressful for him to go in the car and then being at the hospital around people and then getting treatments, it will just be too much for him. She said just to make him comfortable. He's not acting any different than normal (except for the occasional gagging) so we're just going to go about our days as normal. I asked if he was in pain and she said No, he doesn't even know he has the tumor. (I didn't think he was, cause he doesn't act like he's in pain, but just wanted to be sure.) She said she'd be concerned if he starts having trouble breathing. Of course now I'll be watching every breath he takes.

(I had to leave the van because of the x-ray machine, so went back in the house. The vet called me from the van after awhile and said she's going to have to sedate him because he wouldn't lay still on the table (well duh!) and would that be OK with me. She gave him some type of sedation where she can reverse it after she's done, and he came struttin' down the sidewalk when he was done like nothing happened.) :)
