March 15th 1994

Going for a ride in the car is good as it often involves fascinating, new aromas. If my person has planned poorly, people food may be involved. Most activities involving food are good.

I do not like to be picked up. That is for small, yippy things that pretend they are dogs.

Favorite Toy:
My octopus toy is great for killing! Its tentacles flail wildly ... very cool.

Favorite Food:
My person is annoyingly stingy with the people food. However, I have discovered through the years that peanut butter is yummy and ice cream is fabulous.

Favorite Walk:
All walks are good. The best ones are in the mountains where I can find new scents and run rings around my person.

Best Tricks:
I do a fabulous impression of a sharpei. My favorite game is hide and go seek ... as long as I can be the seeker. I have been told that my hiding skills could use some work.

Arrival Story:
Wylie the Wonder Dog passed away in September 2009 after 15 amazing years with her person. Her story follows: I picked out my person at the pound in Wylie, TX. The other puppy interviewing people that day kept hitting its head on the same spot. I selected the person who was as appalled as I was at this failure to grasp the obvious. It took me about a week to complete the screening process and decide that this was my person, a decision I have rarely regretted.

My person and I adapted quickly to our partnership. She required surprisingly little training and seemed to understand the importance of clear, direct communication. We established well defined roles: I am to warn her of danger; she is to protect me, provide appropriate kibble, escort me on walks, etc. I provided her with lots of snuggles, kisses and other positive reinforcement for desired behaviors.

Even though I met my person in Texas, the folks in the know say that I am mostly Carolina Dog. This is an ancient type of dog that evolved alongside humans. We like living in a pack, be it human or canine. We tend to be a bit shy around new people but are always cordial. I am told that Carolina Dogs are highly intelligent, easy to train, and incredibly modest. The Carolina Dog is known by many other monikers, including: American Dingo, Dixie Dingo, Southern Dingo, Native American Dog, Indian's Dog, Southern Aboriginal Dog, and Yaller Dog. Some researchers prefer the terms "primitive dog" or "pariah dog". They will not be joining me for the holidays this year. For more information about Carolina Dogs go to: www.carolinadogs.org.
