Likes: TOYS/BALLS and play. Agility. Food. Off-Leash hikes.
Pet-Peeves: Being woken up from a nap. Not getting something right in Agility - because he's faster than I am! He barks to show his frustration when we mess up! He also will bite at my legs like a freshie when I'm not directing him correctly.
Favorite Food: Natura's EVO dry food (with other high quality dog foods), high quality brand canned foods, and healthy fresh food add-ins. Remington LOVES chicken!
Favorite Walk: Off-leash hikes on trails, the beach, and basically anything, anywhere, anytime.
Best Tricks: Agility. He also knows: Sit, Stay, Drop it, Leave it, Down, Heel, Side, Spin, Reverse, BANG! - Play dead, Back, Speak, Paw, Other Paw, Through, Under, Touch, Roll Over, and Up. Adding new ones all the time!
Arrival Story: Remington came from a farm/stock dog breeder in Oklahoma - I thought perhaps he was an ACD/ASTCD mix, but turns out he is just a big ol' Cattle Dog! He was SO cute when I saw his little cattle dog body in his crate off the plane. I felt bad that he had to travel in a plane, but he arrived safe and sound. I love Remington - he is my soul mate =)
Bio: Remington is a fantastic dog, and I absolutely love Australian Cattle Dogs - they're the only breed for me! Rem is full of energy and loves to do anything and everything. He competes in Agility, and we're hoping to start competing in distance/accuracy disc dog, and also doing Herding. We are also interested in trying out (for fun) Freestyle Dance, Obedience, and Flyball. Rem can do it all - and I couldn't ask for a better dog. He is great off the leash, at the beach, at the dog park, hiking, camping, everything. He loves to fetch - balls, toys, frisbees, whatever! He is a phenominal frisbee catcher, and ball snatcher! When he has a ball, he is dropping it at my feet or on me until I throw it for him!! He loves swimming and if he see's water, he's there. I love to try and tire him out. He really can just keep going and going.

My best bud Chase: Rem says: "Chase is my best bud. We love to play together and just hang out. I have much more energy than him and can outlast him any day! I go over his house all the time and go lots of places with him. We go to the dog park together, the doggie stores, and all sorts of stuff. He's a good boy - sometimes! He likes to run away from his house and come to mine - I guess I'm just a cool guy to come see! Well anyways, he's my best bud!"
My Cattle Dog Friend Bella!: Rem says: "Bella is my Cattle Dog friend. I love her to bits and pieces! She's so cute like me! We talk all the time about all kinds of things. About toys and things we like to do. About what we did throughout the day, or what our plans are! We talk Cattle Dog all the time, and I love it! She's a cutie pie and we look a lot alike!"
Sorry - Haven't written for a long time - we've been super busy!
But wow, what an honor to be Dog of the Day! Hooray! Don't worry, I'll remember all the little people (and dogs) that I've met along the way.
I'd like to thank my Mom, and my doggie family, my Dad, Dogster, my Dogster Pals, and....
02/08: We went back to Fenwick for an hour of fetch. Rupert and I alternate fetches, and Vista chases me!
02/09: We spent 2.5 hours a the Golf Course! We ran into ALL our friends there!! We ran around SOO much and had a blast! We even played ball! It was super. After we went home and Mom went to the doctors. I hope she didn't get muzzled for shots!
02/10: Daddy did it again! He brought us to Beverly Nature Preserve in the morning for 1 hour and 15 minutes! It was really cool for daddy to spend that time with us.. we loved it. Mom came home from work and we played in the house for hours. She is tired though.. I love my poor Mommy.
02/11: Today Daddy walked us in the morning for 45 minutes, let us play off leash at the park for 25 minutes, and played with us at home and in the yard for 30 minutes. It was great. Rupert has class tonight, and we might go on the treadmill.. Mom just wants to nap now.
YESTERDAY: So we don't exactly respect or listen to Daddy all that much =) .. and since Mom had to work, Daddy offered to take us for a hike by himself - which Mom said was a GREAT idea because it'll help our relationship. Mom gave Dad all the directions and information he needed for our hike, and off we went. We went to the Beverly Nature Preserve for 1 hour and 20 minutes.. It was so much fun, and was even better because it meant we were ok to relax for a little while until Mom got home. Dad took care of us, too! Once Mom got home, she took us to Weir Hill to meet up with Shale and her Mom. We hiked there for 2 hours and 15 minutes. We had such a blast. It really was an awesome day. We met a handsome boxer with cropped ears, and a beefy build - named King. He was soo silly!
Mom hasn't been feeling well, and is super tired.. but we really appreciate all the exercise!! Thanks Mom!!
Today we played ball for 1 hour at Fenwick, and played with tons of other dogs that were there. Then we hung out for 2.5 hours at our friend Chase's house. This is the night Mommy told us.. She's pregnant. I don't know what that means, but she sounded kinda happy. So I'm happy too I guess!
