Arrival Story: "Shamcam's Patriot Man" aka Bruschi...We started with Bru's sister Bella, and when the time came to "add" to our family (which consisted of four kids, 1 dog, and two cats) we ended up with Bruschi. Bruschi and Bella have the same dad. In Bruschi's litter, only 7 showed up on ultrasound... but out popped number 8, our Bruschi! We knew the minute he was born that he was the one we would pick. Yes, he is named after the famous New England Patriot Tedy Bruschi (pronounced like Brewski for those of you who are not football fans).
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose some dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!
#1) My official AKC name is "Shamcam's Patriot Man". Sham from Shamrock Boxers (my mum) and cam from Camelot Boxers (my dad)and well, since they call me Bruschi the Patriot man is self explanatory (unless you don't follow football).
#2) I LOVE to snuggle and am the best snuggler ever!
#3) It is easy to see how I'm feeling by my expressions. Mom and dad think it's so cute that I actually have facial expressions.
#4) Scratch me behind my ears, and I'm done! I will melt right into your lap :)
#5) I LOVE cold weather!! Especially snow-FUN!
#6) I love to play in the water. The beach at low tide is the best.
#7) Like my pal Lizzy, I love going for rides in my dad's truck. Driving around with dad by my side is the best!
Wow! I wanted to thank dogster for thinking my diary entry was worth "diary pick of the day". I am humbly honored. Just think, this all started with that little mole. The best thing about today was all the nice things everypup's been saying to me. I've made some new friends, and have heard from some of my other friends. You all make a pup feel special :) Thank you all for your kind words.
Well, you know I try to catch those drasted squirrels, but I got me something second best today. I caught my very first mole, and I was going to get him bad, but mom ruined all the fun. There's actually a video of part of it, but mom wants me to warn you not to turn the volume up too loud if you watch it, cause she screams at the end. Anyway, mom saw me searching for something outside, so she came to check it out. At first she thought it was a toad, so she was coming to save it. I found that little bugger right where he was hiding and he squeeked, and I picked him up very gentle-like, and then I threw him (right toward mom). Mom was the one egging me on to "get it". For some reason, mom wouldn't let me finish him off...something about him being a scared little guy - whatever! Mom turned the camera off, and then the fun started. The mole followed mom wherever she went (she was wearing flip-flops so she was nervous about him running on her feet) and I was following that mole. I thought mom was leading him away to somewhere where I could trap him, but she didn't. So mom was running, the mole was running, and I was right behind boxing with him and picking him up. I was having the time of my life, then mom grabbed me and we watched him run off. I don't understand why I couldn't play with him. Mom ruined all the fun...doesn't she get a dog needs some adventure in his life? Next time (because there WILL be a next time) I am going to have to be sneaky about it so mom doesn't see me. I'll get me a mole again. I promise :)
