   Leave a bone for Dakotah

'Kotah, Buppie

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

September 13th 2003

Fetching his ball. He will play for HOURS w/ that darn ball

He does not like the cats to come near Mom. He gets very jealous

Favorite Toy:
"Chuck it" rubber ball. Can't be a regular tennis ball, he plucks them.

Favorite Food:
Raw ground turkey

Favorite Walk:
To a nature park close to us.

Best Tricks:
He is too good to perform tricks, he acts as though they are beneath him. He will only sit, wait, lay down, jump up & sometimes come when called.

Arrival Story:
We tried for 3 yrs to have a baby & then decided to get a Yorkie. We went to a breeder, saw him, he was larger than his litter mate & we decided to get him. I didn't want a small Yorkie, I wanted one that was a true terrier...tough, tenacious, and full of spunk. That's what I got! He certainly can still be a Drama King but he's a rough & tumble guy.

'Kotah just got a new sister. On 7/28/07 we adopted a Pitbull puppy from the pound. She is already twice his size & still growing. He completely ignored her for the first day & now he's decided he needs to discipline her. When we correct her 'Kotah is right there to enforce it. We don't let him get away w/ this but we secretly feel it's pretty funny. He has always tried to do this w/ our four cats. He's really a Mob enforcer in fur.

Forums Motto:
Where's the ball?!! Where's the ball?!!

Hey Pals! I was tagged by my friend Megan and now I have to pick seven more Pup Pals to play tag with. Hopefully the star I sent you takes some of the sting away!
You need to tell seven things that might be unknown to everyone, then you need to tag seven of your pals to do the same thing.
You can send them a pup mail or you can bribe them & send a gift like I did. Hey, no shame in my game!
These are some of my secrets:
1. I actually like baths!
2. I taught Chianti to sneak food off the coffee table when the mom & dad leave the room.
3. You know the saying "not a jealous bone in his body"? Well every bone in my body is jealous of anyone that takes the mom's attention away from me.
4. I'm VERY scared of noise the self waterer makes when it's refilling the bowl. The big bubbles sound like they’re going to come out of the jug I’m tellin’ ya!
5. Sometimes I sneak into the basement & potty on the rug because it's too cold or wet outside. I'm a Yorkie! What do you expect!?
6. I chase the new kitten when I think no one is looking. And I mean that in a bad way.
7. I make HORRIBLE, LOUD, SCREAMING noises in the car 'cause I always think we're going to the park to play w/ the chuck-it.
The Pup Pals I'm tagging next are:
1.Chianti (not MY Chianti, the Yorkie Chianti)
2. Skunker
3. Owen
4. Zed
5. Zoe
6. Westley
7. Lex


I sleep w/ Pitbulls

Ok, I'm finally ready to admit it...life w/ my Pitbull sister Chianti is pretty cool.
I was an only child for a long time (except for the cats, but we all know they don't count) & a few months ago the mom & dad took me to get a new puppy. They brought me in this room w/ her & I didn't pay much attention to her, she wasn't really worth my attention, after all I'm older, smarter & I knew how to jump up on things & she didn't. Never the less, they decided that I didn't obviously hate her & she was nice to me so they brought her home. I'll tell you, I did a very good job @ ignoring her for a long time, no matter how cute everyone said she was I wanted nothing to do w/ her.
Little by little though she broke down my defenses. She NEVER stopped trying to play w/ me even if I made mean noises or snapped @ her. She just freakin laid there looking hurt & tried again after I calmed down. It was exhausting! Also, she would lay next to me & the mom on the couch & if I moved she moved, she even put her big ole head on me while we were napping! I'm telling you she was relentless! Well you can tell there is terrier in her because she is as tenacious as I am. After I while I figured I would wrestle w/ her to show her who was boss & I'm man enough to admit...it was fun!
She has the biggest mouth ever & I have the best time getting ahold of her lip & pullllllllling. Her ears are great fun too. She rolls over on her belly so I can reach her head & lets me practice my take down moves. Her paws are monsterous though, one smack & I have to start all over. She even lets me chew on her legs & I really like that part, I can almost get my whole mouth around her leg & guess what? It tastes like chicken!
I've actually gotten used to snuggling w/ her too. She takes up a lot more room & I don't think she realizes she's such a moose but she seems to like being close to me. She outweighs me 9lbs to 38lbs but she thinks she's a lap dog so what's a guy to do? Give in & learn to love it, that's my approach.
One thing I do have to vent about however...she's a stealer. She steals the ball right out of my mouth even if I've found it first. She steals hooves from me right when I get them nice & seasoned. She even steals attention from me. Everyone used to say how cute, adorable, sweet, precious & handsome I was & now they still say some but they also say things about her too. It used to be all about ME, but like I said, she stole some of that & now it's all about US. You want proof? She even has more Pup Pals than me! Stealer!
Whew! I feel better, I have no idea where that came from ;-)
It really is nice to have her around though, she has so much energy & can keep up w/ me better than the dad & mom can. I like having someone to do dog things w/ 'cause let's face it, humans can't always relate. Another huge bonus is when things get chewed up or dragged out into the backyard I'm not the first one that gets blamed. Score!
