Some of ya'll might of heard about the story of Nubs the stray dog that Marine Major Brian Dennis over in Iraq found in 2008 and brought back to the states. Mom checked out the book from the library and ended up crying...
When Brian found the dog, the dog's ears had been cut off, thats why he called him Nubs. He was a stray and leader of the pack of strays in the desert. Nubs befrinded Brian and even traveled 70 miles in the extreme desert cold and snow to find him and his troops. After finding Brian and his trrops, starving and exhausted from his ordeal, Nubs wolfed down pancakes, eggs, and sausage the Marines brought him.
Two soldiers who weren't part of the team reported them to officials. After writing e-mail letters to his family and friends back home, him and his men put up flyers to raise the $2000 needed for Nubs' journey to the states.
When the money needed was raised, the brother of Brian's interpreter transported Nubs to the Jordan border. There the King of Jordan's veterinarian gave Nubs his first check-up and shots. He waited while his travel was being arranged. Two weeks later, Nubs flew the 10-hour flight from Amman to Chicago, friends of Brian's picked him up at the airport.
A few days later in February, Nubs flew out of Chicago on the last leg of his long journey. When he stepped off the plane in San Diego, he was greeted with banners and all kinds of cameras. He patiently posed for the"pawparazzi" but was glad to leave with Brian's friends.
He got to sleep in a comfy new bed, tried all kinds of tasty food, and went for walks in the dog park. But Nubs knew someone was missing.
On March 23, 2008, Eric and Chrissy drove Nubs to Camp Pendleton. The "pawparazzi" were there again! Nubs waited and waited. When he finally saw Brian ....Nubs leaped into his arms and covered him with kisses!
Today, Nubs and Brian lead a busy life. They play at the dog beach and cruise around in Brian's truck.
Now Nubs has a name and person to call his own. And he shares the friendship and love he found with everyone he meets. BUT, Nubs saves his best kisses for his best buddy, Brian.
So that's the story of Nubs. Of COURSE mom cried. She's like that ya know. I've attached a copy of a video from You Tube where Brian was on the Ellen Degeneres Show last year. There's also other videos you can also watch about Nubs. Watch it and then tell me YOUR mom doesn't cry.

Mom was looking at some cards online that she's sent out over the years, and one of the cards from 2004 said "With Love, Lou Ann, Annie, Randy and Doo!" OMD THAT'S ME!! That means I'm 5 not 4 like mom had thought!! Gosh talk about a bad memory--she can't even remember when her kids's birthdays are!! Thats such a shame, mom.
So I was 6 months old when mom got me, so my birthday is March 2004 and Austin was about 18 months old when she got him in 2006 so I think (think being the operative word here) his age is right--4 years old. And she thought me and him were the same age--NOT!! I'm older so I'm still the boss!! What I say goes!!! BOL
Well, I still look good for my age!! BOL

I'm supposed to 7 facts about me (don't know if they're all that interesting) and then tag some of my friends and have them tell some things about themselves too.
1) I can go pee on command
2) If a toy squeeks, I'll either break the squeeky or just won't play with the toy.
3) As you ALL know, I get into trouble A LOT!!
4) If Austin is relaxing, sometimes, I like to lay on his paws if he's ignoring me and I want his attention. This also gets mom's attention REAL FAST!
5) When I get tired of mom taking my picture, I turn my head away from her.
6) I like counter surfing to see what I can get.
7) When mom is out of the room (like taking a shower or taking out the garbage) is when I do my most shenanigans, so she can't see me. But I do have to face the wrath of mom when she does see what I've done. (BOL)
I'm gonna tag:
If you don't want to participate, I'll definitely understand.

Mom went out to dinner last night with a friend and somehow or another the subject got around to Pit Bulls. Mom's friend said "Dog fighting has been around every since Georgia was a state. Some dogs are just for that sport. Look at their head shapes. I mean, they're just dogs".
((OMD OH NO HE DIN'T SAY THAT!! (What does the shape of a dog's head have to do with it being a fighting dog?) WTF??? ))
Mom put her finger up and said "Don't go there. Just don't go there!" "They aren't JUST dogs." "Dogs become fighters because they are trained that way by their owners...they don't come into this world knowing how to kill."
((I mean if you jab or hit a dog over and over and over and over, he's gonna finally get tired of it and let you know in the best way he knows how...maybe first by growling, but then he's GONNA bite you.))
The friend went on to say "but I wouldn't want them around my kids". Mom asked him "what about the K-9 police dogs who are trained to kill if need be. I've seen the cop shows on TV and all the criminals are yelling at the police with a dog..."don't let the dog go, please, I'll do whatever you want, just don't let the dog go." Cause they know with one command that dog can rip his throat out or do permanant damage a little lower." (BOL). She also told him that lots of times the police office will adopt the police dog as their own after he or she has been retired from the police force. And lots of them have kids, and those dogs were killers too. So what's the difference. He didn't know (or maybe didn't realize) that the police dogs are adopted out and really didn't think of them in the same way as Pit Bulls.
((But they are the same, aren't they??))
So, I guess the answer to my question is...yes people ARE this stupid!!

HOW COOL IS THAT!?? My mom called Abby's mom tonight and we talked about everything. Like having pictures made with Santa Claws and the Easter Bunny. And how scary it was to have a 7 foot rabbit trying to make you sit still for the pictures. We all just laughed and laughed.
Abby said they go all out for Halloween, but they have to take the stuff down that night after all the kids come because her mom and daddy have to go to work the next morning and they don't want anyone to steal the stuff or destroy it. I told Abby to take bunches of pictures for us to see! I bet the kids will be scared of her when they come to the door. She should have her mom put a bag with the candy in it around Abby's neck and if the kids are brave enough to take the candy--its theirs!! BOL
It was so cool to be able to talk to my BFF! DOGSTER ROCKS!! Because without them, Abby and I would never have met!

Sooo, what were you doing at 1:30 this morning? Most of you were probably sleeping and dreaming of rabbits or dog treats, but not us. NOPE, mom was changing the sheets on her bed. In following the new trend from some of my friends to ruin mom's furniture (Zaidie and Duke both pottied on their couches recently), I threw up on mom's bed. (It was on MY side, so I should get SOME credit...right?!) She was online here talking to our friends Misty, Scooter, Pepper and Cutter's mom about their trip they're planning next summer to Canada, and mom heard this noise. She didn't think anything about it cause sometimes I DO cough or hack, but then I came out of the bedroom and started towards the back door. She got up and let me out then when right into the bedroom to see if maybe I did throw up. Yep, lo and behold, there was throw up on the sheet and from the looks of it I had done it more than once. Ewwww!! But she changed the sheets and then we went to bed and I was o.k. for the rest of the night.
Wonder if changing my name had a bad effect on me???!!!

Mom changed the title on my page to read "Doo, Girl Dog Extraordinaire". So many pups were always referring to me as a boy, so I just decided to permanently clear things up. (we even saw in some of my groups that when pups would leave a comment for me, they also used him/his when referring to me.) I was never ever offended, so don't think that by calling me a boy or using the male/masculine description that I was.

I tried to out run her but Bella caught me & tagged me! Here are the rules: Tell 7 random facts about yourself. Post these facts & the game rules in your diary. Then tag 5 dogs (don't forget to list their names) who must tell 7 random facts about themselves. Let these dogs know they've been tagged by sending them a Paw-mail or rosette.
Hmmm lets see...my 7 facts...
1. I sleep with my mama in her bed and sometimes go to bed without her when its late at night.
2. I can eat all my food in 30 seconds flat! BOL
3. I think I'm addicted to mud, cause I love to tromp in it after it rains and bring it in the house.

6. I love my stuffies, but I'm not a real big fan of tennis balls.
