1. I love to watch TV especially Animal Planet except that I get sad at the animals they save cry so sometimes I cry too. I try to look into the tv.

2. I don't bark tootoo much,,so my family knows they should look see what is going on.

3. I love all animals and hope one day to have a brother or sister but I am very attached to Mom, DaddyO and Big brother. I would want them(the othr pup) for me only to play with.

4. When we moved here last year one of my neighbors were kind of afraid of me. They had just gotten a puppy poodle mix and she kept escaping when the kids opened the door. My Mom and dad took me out when I was crying at the window and they saw here running around the yard across from us.She saw me and she followed me to her family three seperate times. They said how sweet I was and such a good dog too. Her name is Polish so I dont know how to spell it!. I am the neighborhood Dog mother now.

5. I always come up to my Mom?Dad and say thank you after I get fed. I eat some food and then come up and sofly nudge them and/or wag my tail. They say your welcome and I go finish my food. I was very skinny and hungry when I arrived but I am so gentle and good mannered with food. Never ever try to guard it at all,. Mom thinks that other d0gs ate my food in foster as I wouldnt stop them for it no matter how hungry I was. Im "well rounded now" , vet said Daddy needs to stop with treat so much ! He's Italian-American and Mom says that means love and food go together:O).

6. I am a real goofball after I eat or go out ot do Business. I run around and jump in my chair and flip upside down and smile like a gremlin. Then They scratch my chest and I am happy happy.

7. I try very,very hard to Talk , sometimes it sounds like words even my skeptical brother laughs and says yup she sure did sound like she said that!. He said it sounded like a bad word but I would never say that! ;o)
Ilove him and I lay in his room when he stays over at his friends house because I miss him.

From Dog Phobia to A Friend

This past weekend we were going for our evening walk. We just got to street when a neighbor from the corner house saw us and came out and ask to come over to us. She said she saw me walking often with my human "brother" or mommy. She said for some reason she thought what a nice dog and she wanted to say hello. She told mommy She is deathly afraid of dogs due to being severely mauled by a dog when younger. She had major scars all from legs on up. Ouch thats so sad. She petted me I was a bit nervous at first as She was slightly nervous . I watched Moms reaction she was calm so Isat next to Mom nicely. I dont really like being pet on my head so Mom explain that alot of dogs get scared of this. She petted my ruff(collar of fur around my neck), which is great.

She then invited us to her yard to meet her family. They all couldnt believe she was actually standing near let alone petting me. They have a house cat I see him in the window every day. Theyalso have a great koi pond and waterfall in the yard. It is the prettiest house on the block. They talked with Mom, so I sniffed ound the patio edges near Mom. I really behaved so nicely. I looked at the big colored fish and left them alone. I didnt know what that big wooden thing over us was. I kept hearing sounds made me alert., They call it a deck! The man was up there and came down steps to see us. They said I was a good dog and so well behaved. They thanked us for coming by as this was such a big step for her. It was a very happy day as alot of people are scared of brindle color dogs or "bully' looking dogs,, let alone someone who was so severely hurt by a dog. It was great that we helped turn someones lifelong fear of dogs to starting to trust again. We made a new friend and put a good memory of dogs for our neighbor too. Who knew a Walk could do so much!

Remember humans NEVER RUN from a dog it is a sure way of getting chased,knocked down and possibly bitten. Be Alert and calm. Keep your furry friends safe too.

Dogs Always be on Doggy Best behavior ! You Never know when you could Make a good impression and change someones opinion or even their life!
Wow what a great feeling! Gold stars for doggies!

Off Leash Fun

Last week when we brought Mom to her specialist Dr I had a new adventure. I went on my usual "park" walk with DaddyO. There is big open land and trees where they're going to build more medical offices. We met a man walking with his dog and he asked if I could play. Dad was little nervous of me off leash but we were away from the roads and parking lots so he said ok. I ran and ran and played so nice with this big dog and came back to Dad when he called. He thought he told Mom how good I was playing and coming back. Maybe next time we will see them again ,the man said he would look for us. The other pup was older and he had a ral good time too. The man told Dad that theres nothing like a dog playing with another Dog for exercise. People just cant keep up with us that way. I loved it.

Agghh I have found a new LOVE. Its Fresh fish. DaddyO's friend goes fishing on the big boats around here and gave him some Fluke fish. He wrapped it in foil and put it on the grill. Mom couldnt believe how much I loved it. Her dog Pepper when growing up loved fish more than any other food. Well I polished off all of it . Delish as that cute girl on tv says! Pepper knew what she was woofing about.

As everyone was relaxing later that night. My brother started laughing and said Mom hurry, come here. Well I was busted!! The little rat fink.
I had gotten into the garbage bag!!!! No I didnt tear it up. I picked the foil packets and paper towels so slickly out of the trash from a tiny opening on top with my pokey nose. Here I was enjoying my find, just laying on the rug in front of the sink. Licking up all the remnants of any fish. Man it's good stuff.

I didnt notice Mom had come in. She swooped up that foil and said NOO!! I took off. Mom was so shocked as I never was a bin picker before! She said we all would have to watch more closely. I was always so good to leave anything alone that might be around. I always wait until they say go ahead to eat.
3 years and all I've ever pinched was some tisuues,paper towels and the like. She said well I am a dog and the temptation just got the better of me. Oh and brother got it too, he was supposed to have taken it outside right away. So heh brudda man you take out the trash! Tonight fish but no scavenging allowed! ;( I LOVE FISH!

THANKS Dogster!!! For Me being in the Diaries List today. Man I am just zipping around this time from Happiness!!!!. I thought Mom was just happy to see me when she came home. I was so good today when Mommy took the human brother to the teen Vet(hehe) for his school checkup. Yes I whined and did race back and forth and waited looking out the window for 3 HOURS! How dare they. Mom was so proud of me ,Bruddaman was too. He gave me treats. I didnt tear up anything but the wood floor from my pacing., bol. ;o)

This is a Big accomplishment for me, Im trying hard. I just love being with my people. They do come back for me though so I got to learn to be a Cool Cat Uh I Mean DOG. It is way to hot to run around like a banshee and crying so pitiful the neighbors look over to see what is wrong.

This is so pawsome. I LOVE reading other pups diaries so interesting, funny sometimes sad but always a priveledge . I must keep after Mom to type ,but they Always Say "No Poking allowed!!"
I have to be reminded all the time especially when I get happy. Its a herding thing people! Mom DaddyO and family tell me they are NOT sheep or cows. DUHH........I AM Smarter than you think !! Remember I have Selective hearing on occasion! Bark at Ya Later Pups!

Well It Was An Interesting Labor day. My Aunt(Moms Sister), Grandma and my cousins moved back from Georgia this weekend. They had a very long trip. Daddy and Uncle Jeff helped them unload the truck. Daddy came home smelling like another girl!!?? He said oh that Cupcake is so cute! Well what kind of food is cute?? Do tell DaddyO. Speaking of food,We all were invited next door for bbq.Yummo!

I went over with Mommy and was running around. Mom went to get something from Daddy near the fence . All of a sudden A big Ginger cat came out of Aunt Marys side porch. That big Cat Slapped me in the face and hissed at me with sharp teeth before I knew what was what. Wow A cat friend! I play bowed then Geez that Big Old CAT took off toward the street. I ran after it. Mom was screaming "Darla stop". (Not very Cool mommy!)That darn cat tried to KILL me, by trying to trick me into running into the street. I was too quick on these little legs, I can turn on a dime. It weaved back and I was right behind it. Mom was wiggin' out. I came back when we got to the next house.That cat stood by the fence and Wouldnt play any more.

Hmm and he got fed by Aunt Mary too. I could have caught him if I wanted, chase was just really fun. Mom and Dad were not pleased. The humans all thought someone was being hurt when Mom yelled.hehe;o) Heck I came back didnt I?. I just wanted to play. Adventures To be continued...

I heard my Aunt and Cousin at Aunt Mary's gate so I ran over to say Hello. They made it from Georgia hooray! What to my surprise was there but my little Human cousin holding a little ball of fur. Hmm what was it that he had in his hand. It barked and yipped but I couldn't reach it.. Why my dear boy had turned on me and had a new best friend could it be? Mommy said "Oh thats Cupcake?? Isnt she so cute". everyone Cooing and ahhing. SO this was the OTHER girl!Mom asked them to let her down so we can sniff and meet each other. This little brown furry creature ran under the chair, growled and yipped. I couldnt understand. She is like a soft cotton ball and can only weigh maybe 8 lbs. he is a toy poodle. She looks like a Hostess cupcake thats how she got her name.

I tried so hard to be nice. I ran so she could chase me, she ran the other way under the chair?? I let her try to sniff she growled and show her little teeth. I know to play different than with the big dogs. She eventually lept through the air right into Grandmas lap and snarled down at me. SHe would be great in the circus. She made this high pitch yipping sound whenever she thought I was coming near her and I didnt even touch her. Well I never! When my Aunt heard the snarling she asked what was that .Mommy said Not darla it was Cupcake. I think she is much Smarter than they think. She tried to make it look like me No sound like that could come from a cute little pup. hehe./

They said oh She is not used to other dogs and just moved 2 days in a car carrier. She must be scared. So I left her be and played with the human cousin. All night I kept trying to be friends. We ate sort of near each other. This adorable little pip squeek ate all her food and then tried to sneak over to mine since I eat slow !! She ate her food in a second. I licked her belly and feet and neck after she kept snarling. Mommy said it look like she was going to be the Big Cheese. Whatever that is!!! I love Cheese too but I thought this was a Cupcake?? Uh whatever food is food! I love my cousin no matter what.

Later on I was snooping around the yard and by the gate. Cupcake saw that her human brother was near me and came closer finally. He said "oh Cupcake,SHe doesnt listen too good." I really love my Aunt and cousins. I really hope Miss Cupcake learns to play nice and stops being afraid. Mommy said its very important that she learns to be with other dogs. She is 6 months old and it was a big move for them all. She is such a cutie pie . Come on Cuz' I just wanna be Your friend. You will always be a Georgia Peach, but you are An Empire State girl now. We will have alot of fun here.
I really Love ya , Ya Little Cutie !! I hold out hope we will play the next time.


The Ant Bait Incident........

September 14th 2007 5:06 pm

Well I did something you might expect a puppy to do. Wed night I went out for my nightly constitutional. I came in checked on everyone and went to lay down or so Mommy thought. About 11 pm or so Daddy was getting ready for bed and I nudged him and jumped on the bed and nosed the conmforter.. He waved me over. Mommy looked and saw little bits of something. She said no it wan't paper and picked it up. It was sharp little bits of plastic. With the color of it she knew what it was. She siad " Shes eaten ant bait!" daddy said no maybe its a toy or pen like that. Momm checked all around and found evidence in brothers room too. She then looked in the far corner behind the bed. IT was missing.

I got hold of the Combat ant bait trap.I chewed it up into bits and swallowed it. She posted on dogster and found another trap. Brother read the phone number off and serial number. Thankfully Mommy listened to the WHOLE message as they had dedicated lines for human and animal ingestion issues. The lady was Really nice and took all info and looked into it. Well thankfully the stuff isnt poisonous per se for dogs but the plastic could possibl blockage issue . I had to eat bread and didnt want to take it . Who Knows Maybe there was a pill in in. I kept spitting it out but finally Mom smushed it and I ate some. Have to watch me for 24-60 hrs see if I had any problems. I have passed some and its is small sharp pieces. Yikes. I am ok thankfully. Mom and daddy are checking on me all the time now again. I have been doing puppy things lately why?? Not sure. I give myself up when I do something Im not supposed to! I really am pretty good usually.
Puppy proofing redone. Ps DaddyO got a Qtip stuck in his ear that night.We Make poor Mommy crazy. She said we make her hair turn gray,bol.

Thanks to all the dogsters who gave us help and information. Great website Zoe thanks again All. Dogsters are the best!!!!!!!!!
