Likes: Food, playing tug of war with my toys, going walkies, sleeping with mummy, pottering in the garden, sitting in the sunshine, kissing mummy
Pet-Peeves: Thunderstorms, having my nails clipped and having a bath, the vacuum cleaner monster
Favorite Toy: My absolute favourite toy is my big teddy bear (it's bigger than me!). I suckle on Teddy and go to sleep on him and my plush Anty (anteater) all the time. And did someone say squeaky toys? Oh, and my tug of war rope toys and balls!
Favorite Walk: Going to the local park, but any walkies really.
Best Tricks: Sit, wait, rolls over, crawling along the carpet like she's swimming freestyle in water, jumps to catch plush toys and then spits them out at my feet so I can throw them again, blankie guerilla warfare (don't ask)
Arrival Story: I adopted her from Shenton Park Dogs' Home in Perth. She was apparently a pound rescue. How anyone could have given her up or abandoned her is utterly beyond me. It was love at first sight for me. When we did the meet and greet at the Dogs' Home, I asked her if I could pic her up and when I did she turned in my arms and licked/kissed me and I was utterly and irrevocably smitten. I was moving and had to wait a week before I could take her home, but going home day arrived and when I went to collect her and Dogs' Home staff brought her out to me I just cried, I was so happy, and so was she. She's the most beautiful little dog anyone could ever hope to adopt and it's such a privilege to be her guardian and mummy.
Bio: Pogo is a beautiful, sweet natured, very happy, friendly and playful little girl. She just loves people (especially when they make a fuss of her) and likes most other dogs. She's such a wonderful mix of the best of both Jack Russell and Chihuahua, and I'm so privileged to be her Mummy and to have her in my life. She's always so happy to see other dogs, especially her pals that she sees regularly at our local dog park, and her pals love to see her, racing up to welcome her if they're at the park first. She loves playing with them and is always so happy around them. It's such a joy to see how much she's bloomed in the years since we found each other. I'm so proud of my dear little sweetheart.

Thank you dear pals for your kindness in sending me so many Valentine pretties for my page - you're all so thoughtful, and I appreciate it more than I can tell you all! Thank you for thinking of me xoxoxoxox
Much love from little me, who is really over this summer and all our heatwaves down here!
Thank you so very much to everyone who has thought of me and given me good wishes and pretties and pressies for my pawge in honour of my Gotcha Day annifursary. Mummy and I can't begin to tell you how very much we appreciate it - and all of you! xoxoxoxo
So six years ago exactly today, Mummy and I met for the first time at the Shenton Park Dogs' Home. I was brought out to meet Mummy in the meet and greet area at the Home. Mummy very kindly and with great respect, asked me if she might pick me up. I was agreeable to that. Actually, I was more than agreeable. Once she had picked me up and was cuddling me, I decided I kinda liked this hooman who was cuddling me so lovingly, so I turned around and gave her a sweet kiss.
That was all it took. From that very instant, Mummy and I were destined to be together. I love Mummy and I know she loves me, very much. We complement each other, and as a very dear friend of ours says, Mummy considers me her heartsong. My heart dances too, when I see my Mummy. Neither of us can believe it's been six years - those years have flown by in the blink of an eye - here's to many more!!!
We had such a great Gotcha Day pawty. A few of our friends came to celebrate with us, including my BFF Bella. There was some ham and cheese for us doggie girls, and we managed to inveigle our way to a few treats like a chip or two and a tiny bit of muffin. It was so much fun, and everyone made such a fuss of me! Of course, I was a bit bemused that Bella decided to curl up on my Snooza Cuddler bed, but in the spirit of the day and celebration, I was a very good hostess and allowed her to rest her elderly bones in there. She's 12 years old, you see, bless her.
Love and gratitude to everyone from me and Mummy xoxoxoxo
