Nicknames: I go by Mojer, Little Mo-Man, MoFo, MoJo, MoSus, MoHatma, MoHammad (sometimes Ali), HoMo Erectus, and more formally; "He Who Loves Peoples Muchly."
Birthday: July 2nd 1994
Likes: I love sleeping in the sun rays in the front window. I love the cuddles I get at home so much, and Grandma and Grandpa and Lass's place is great 'cause we all love each other there too! AND I love visitin' Graham's just 'cause.
Pet-Peeves: For reasons unknown, I go berserk at the sound of a sibilant "s'. But seeing as I'm largely deaf, this is less of an issue than it used to be. These days I'm basically peeve-less.
Favorite Toy: I have a few bones I'll bring out to show off my chewing abilities, but mostly I like hanging with my homies (pack).
Favorite Food: I mostly eat healthy, but I like carrots and pigs ears and if we're talking cheese, I'll pretty much sell the nuts I don't have.
Favorite Walk: I'm pretty lazy but, once I'm out there I love walking in the ravine 'cause it's off-leash and I can dawdle. I also like goin' down Whyte Avenue meetin' all the other dogs and nice peoples.
Best Tricks: I'm great at being lovable (I'm a super good cuddler), I'm totally good at being cute, AND I can catch food that's thrown to me. I learn fast, but my body's not super spry anymore.
Arrival Story: I was looking for a family with nice owners who didn't shed too much and didn't bother my allergies. Back in '94 I found this guy. He sometimes pees in my big, white ceramic water bowl, but otherwise it's been a great 15 years and he's always been really good to me. I think we're perfect for each other. Two paws up!
Bio: I came from a good breeder in Millarville, but I'm glad I moved to Edmonton. My life is full of lots of love and fun and my family is the bestest, lovingest, most supportingest pack ever! I get so much love and attention that I have enough joy in me for a million dogs!
Dad tells me this. I have no way of knowing. Time has no meaning to me. I simple "am," and by being "am" I naturally "do." Sometimes I do something. Like, amble, or sit, or watch a cat. Sometimes I do nothing. Sometimes I do doo. But regardless, I "am" what I "do" (not what I've done or have). And if I'm always am-doing, then that's what I'm experiencing. So the only time I know is, whatever you want to call "now." But I get that enough of my nows have gone by that the Earth has gone around the sun 15 times. That is pretty cool, even though I don't know what "the sun" is, and I'm not even super confident on "around." 15 is a number, I'm pretty sure. I'd know it if you had 15 treats in your hand. But whatever. I'm getting lots of cuddles today and I'm thrilled. My tail is wagging. Life is good. Me and Dad love each other good. He has to lift me up into the car now and stuff, but he says it's fine because it's just one more way he can use to get all love out of him and into me, and that's what he really wants to do. And he says spending time with me is still just as fun, and just as relaxing as it's ever been. We have good lives and we appreciate them. I taught dad that. Happy Birthday to you. Whoever you are, I love you too.
Hi everyone! I hope your day is as great as mine. My dad woke me up singing happy birthday, and he cuddled me like crazy. Then I got a belly rub and then we went for a nice walk in the ravine and I had some extra chew sticks. Then I got to go to my grandma and grandpas house for a birthday visit and tonight dad and me are gonna hang out--just us older guys.
My life has taught me a lot. It taught me that everyone slips and falls all their life, but that peoples and dogs are all tryin' their hardest to be the bestest creatures they can figure out how to be. I know my dad always forgives me when I make a mistake, and I do the same for him. Forgiveness is a pretty awesome basis for any relationship, so I hope that when you have one of your slips, that you have a dad or someone like I do, who forgives you and loves you just like they do on days when you're perfect.
Like before, I don't really need much, so I'll send my birthday wish out into the universe, where maybe someone more in need can make better use of it. Thanks for checking in with me on my birthday, and thanks to those who've left me Dogster bones. Yum!
Today is my birthday. Not that I would know, but Dad always gives me more treats and visits to people on the 2nd, so I kinda get it. I have to say, life just keeps getting better and better. I've lost some weight, which is healthy, and my two surgeries last year and both have held fine (two knee ligaments), so I'm really grateful to Dr. Greenbank and my surgeon, Dr. Friesen. Dad spends loads of time with me, and we're back on our near-life-long schedule of brushing several times a week, and I love our long walks in the ravine and sits on the porch. I'll admit, it's been a bit hot this week, but no one said life would give me what I want. But, like Mick Jagger says, I usually get all I need. More most times. So when I thought about what I wanted for my birthday this year, I just couldn't think of anything I really needed. So I came to the conclusion that instead of asking for something, I'd just be grateful for all I already have. It's a great feeling and better than any present I ever gotted. So I'd encourage you to do the same. I'm no scientist, but it seems to me you can only feel one emotion at a time. So if I'm thinking grateful thoughts, I'm gettin' grateful emotions. Which means there's no room for any emotions I don't like. So, after 12 long years on the planet Earth, that's the sum of my wisdom: rather than whining or complaining and askin' everyone else to do somethin' else to satisfy you, instead just create your own enjoyment of life by focusing on what you have. If you do, you'll see it works. And that's the best proof. Thanks to the whole world for another great year. I love you all.
