Arrival Story:
Plumm came into my life a few weeks after I let my little rescued poodle, Su-z, cross the Rainbow Bridge at age 17. It was very lonely without her! A few days later I came across a business card for a Lakeland breeder that I had picked up at the Phila Dog Show 5 years earlier. My first dog was a Lakie, Pool Forge Drum Major, "Drum" for short, so I decided to call and see if there were any puppies available. She apologized for not having a few to choose from but told me that she had a very nice 9-month old red boy named Plumm - Drum, Plumm - the name did it - 2 days later I drove down to meet him. Well, he came racing into the room, barking the entire time - Yikes! Quite a change from little Su-z - even Drum was calmer in his younger days. Plumm was in charge and he wanted to make sure we knew it! He slowed down a little bit to say hello and get a sniff or two then off he went, zooming around, barking. Well, I took a deep breath, completed the transaction, got background info on Plumm, his papers, etc, then off we went. He wasn't a happy boy in the crate - fortunately it was only a 2-hour ride. Once home Plumm raced around the house and yard until he was exhausted. He was pretty housebroken and loved to go out so the adjustment period was rather short. He made himself at home on my bed the first night, making the 30" leap look effortless. Plumm adjusted well to city life - he'd bark at the fire engines and police sirens, people walking by with boom boxes, and best of all, the mailman: grabbing the mail as it came through the slot and throwing it on the floor was his favorite! We lived this happy existence, moving to a bigger house outside the city after 9 years. Then I decided we both needed a little spark to liven things up... enter SPINNER! :-)

His AKC name: "Kilfel Greenchance Geronimo" His litter mates: "Bing" & "Quince"

Well, I made it! Here it is September 1, 2008 - Mom said she wasn't sure if I would a couple of times but I fooled her! I still walk a little funny but I'm back to eating normal food after sampling Italian and Chinese - both very tasty - egg foo young is my favorite, pasta with cheese sprinkles and butter, a close second. Now I'm happy with Mighty Dog and Chinese white rice. Mom's been crushing my 4 meds and mixing them right in - I can't even tell ! Then I have a biscuit or 2 to clean my teeth! Mom has something planned for later today - it's a surprise - I think it's a nice warm bath, a trim and then a party with Spinney, Padd, Daze & Widj! Oh, boy!! Can't wait! Gotta go... ! :-)

What a great thing to happen! Mom told me the news when she got home and showed me the page with my picture right in the middle! She said I’d gotten a lot of emails from pups who wanted to be pals and pups who gave me gifts – I feel very lucky! We’re going to try and answer every email but it’s hot & stuffy in Mom’s “office” where the computer is – but we’ll do it – in the mean time: “Thank you all very much for being so kind ! I really like meeting all of you and getting your emails!” “Thank you, DOGSTER, I’m very honored to be selected.”


I’m a “GERBER Baby” now – Yum!

Age has it’s privileges – I got tired of the same old kidney diet, the bland, smell-less stuff Mom’s been giving me for months – even the Pill Pockets weren’t tempting any more – Last week Mom got really scared when I was eating less and less… Well, you figure I don’t do much but lay around and nap and I am a good 18 pounds (fighting weight for a typical Lakie!) so I could afford to be picky – I just didn’t have any other way to tell Mom to perk up the grub. Gotta give her credit, tho, she figured out that baby food might do the trick – if it’s good enough for babies it’s good enough for me! I’m lovin’ it – don’t have to chew too much – tastes like stew – I know Mom’s crushing up all my meds and mixin’ them in but I can’t taste ‘em – We went to the vet on Saturday – that’s how scared Mom was – Dr. Nancy checked me out – said my heart & lungs sounded OK, no change, said baby food was fine & they’d do blood work on Monday when I see Dr. Donna, my chiropractor. I could tell Mom was VERY happy – We stopped at the market and she got a big bag of Gerber stuff (oatmeal with bananas is YUMMY!) and when we got home we shared an toasted English muffin – we both like those! Then I hung out in the backyard with Paddles & the girls – the sun felt really good!  Sunday was a beautiful day too – lots of porch time!
