Quick Bio:

I like to eat, and I like to get treats, and I like to give Mommy lots of kisses especially when she comes home - I love it when she is here with me!

I don't like it when Mommy tries to clip my nails!! Pleeease don't touch my feet!! And be careful when you brush my tail, ok?

Favorite Toy:
I don't like toys, they are so boooring. I like to play with people, tease them and bend them to my will...

Favorite Food:
I like all foods. What is that in your hand?? Can I have some, Pleeeeze!! Mommy feeds me special food from the Vet to keep my stomach good.

Favorite Walk:
Up the street and around the corner to do my business, and anywhere Mommy is going!!

Best Tricks:
My best trick is being sweet and comforting when someone is sick. I learned that one all on my own. Mommy taught me sit and sit down. I could stay if I wanted to, but don't let on to her, ok?

Arrival Story:
Tuffy belonged to my best friend's brother. He was in between homes and couldn't keep Tuffy for a few months, so Tuffy moved in with my best friend. To be honest, Tuffy did not like me too much when I first met him. He would growl at me a lot... But over the course of time, he got to know me, and he would lick me to say hello, but he was still very cautious about me. My best friend could not keep him any more, so I said bring him over to my house, I will keep him for a while. Originally it was just for a month or so. I am so lucky that I got to keep him. He is my forever friend!! I love him!!

Did Mom tell you how I came to live here? Did she tell you about the back surgery?? I hurt my back and could hardly walk. They operated and took out a disk - it was from an old injury - lets just say, I don't try to jump on the bed any more... I am in great shape now. No one thinks I am 11 yrs old - I run around at top speed, and can spin around and walk on 2 feet like a puppy. But now I take more naps in between having all this fun..............Tuffy passed away at the age of 14. He taught us a lot, and we loved him very much. We love him, very much.

Hi Guys,
Mom has been spending a lot of time spraying the plants with water. Understandable, it is hot out there. Yesterday, she went out to water the plants on the deck, and I snuck out after her, boy was she suprised!! It was very hot on the deck, and Mom did have the hose running, so I thought the prudent thing to do would be to go back inside and pretend it never happened. Yeah, I am an angel, gimme a treat, ok? Best wishes to all you pups out there, especially the seniors like me who are still pups at heart!! - Tuffy

Dear Diary,
Comments have been made about how much I slept today. It is true. I needed to catch up on my beauty rest, Diary. In recent days I have been to both the groomers and to the vets. And Mommy keeps cleaning up the house. Something is up... I have my suspicions about where all this may lead to, but I am not talking, not yet,anyway.
Gotta go Diary. Kisses and treats to all my dogster pals out there,,, Mmmmwah!! - Tuffy


I missed you, Diary!!

Dear Diary,
It has been a long time since Mom's asked me for her help in waxing poetic for you... she spends a lot of time working on that fold- up computer of hers... this morning I helped out by taking my nap on the wires she runs from the kitchen to the dining room table. She says it is the internet cord. I think it makes a good belly scratcher....
I think I heard her say she is going to work on Sunday. I need Mommy and Grandma and Grandpa nearby at all times. It may look like I am taking a nap sometimes, but in truth, I am just conserving my strength, cause you never know when they will need my help on a project ... (Mommy: Tuffy is the best little helper you could ask for. )
Bye for now diary... I have been away for too long... Best wishes for hugs and treats for all my pup pals out there....
