To ZOOOOOOOOOOM! and me and his daddy :)

His little sister Mia; but that's another story for another page.

Favorite Toy:
A roll of toilet paper. OY!

Favorite Food:
He's a long, lean machine and not a huge chow hound. Kibble and rice, a bit of beef, and pumpkin.

Favorite Walk:
Mojo, Mia and I have begun our daily ritual of cruising around our little neihborhood where they just GO CRAZY with all the smells and the intersting leaves and twigs and oh! let's not forget the crowd that gathers round them "What kind of dogs are they?"

Best Tricks:
Now he's tall enough to stand with his paws on ANY countertop and reeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaach in there to snatch up anything that looks remotely interesting......and he does it well!

Arrival Story:
My family desperately wanted to get a dog; boyfriend included. I've lost 2 dogs who got hit by cars over the course of 30 years, and DOGGEDLY REFUSED (pun intended!) to put myself and others through that heartache. One day this past March, my b/f and I were walking through a parking lot where a car was slowly passing us. In the passenger's lap and looking out the window (so that you could only see the dog's back), I saw her holding her pet and the words, "Now THAT'S the kind of dog I would get!".......without knowing what kind, what it's face looked like, and DEFINITELY knowing NOTHING about Iggy's whatsoever.......had never heard of them! On April 1st, after much research and consideration re: lifestyle change (boy, that's an understatement), we were driving home from our wonderful, reputable breeder's home with our unamed little 12 week old IG. BOY, WERE WE IN FOR A SURPRISE!

We went to the breeder's house JUST TO LOOK! Ha! We were allowed to play with the two pups the breeder was able to part with, and whereas I was keen on the seal female, the breeder told us that if it were her choice, she'd choose the fawn male. My instincts told me to listen to her....and so I did. His original name was 'Striker' because she thought he was so striking. She has since told us that in her 30 years of breeding, she doesn't believe she's bred a more beautiful pup. She told us that if he'd been a female, she would have kept him! We were due to come back the following day to pick him up (2 hour drive), and halfway home we found a pet shop, so purchased what we needed, called the breeder back and asked if we could come back then and there to 'retrieve our new baby'. She agreed and we became the proud parents of "No-Name Iggy"!

Forums Motto:
Mojo's the Most Beautiful Isabella Ever!

The Last Forum I Posted In:
Hey Iggys I need your help

Mojo is a true Isabella with beautiful greenish eyes, a self-colored nose, and a smirk that he flashes when he outsmarts us......! Before his neuter, he wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, and one of his testicles was 'M.I.A'. I said, "It's in his brain." It wasn't, it was right behind the other one, HOWEVER!....immediately after his neuter he became so smart, so mature and so loving that we were shocked! He's a good good boy who had a baby sister 'thrust' upon him (a surprise birthday gift for me; my seal female), and he accepted her lovingly and easily. SHE, on the other hand, has been giving him a run for his money even when she weighed 1/3 of what he weighed. * UPDATE: Now that Mojo's nearly a year old (1/16/07) he's probably grown to his full stature which is gorgeous; he'd be the most beautiful little Isabella bitch ever! He's long and leggy, hasn't got a voracious appetite, is very active, and looks downright puny compared to Xena (aka, Mia) hsis sister who's 5 months younger than he is! Between those two puppers, I've aged 100 years! My advice? Get your first pup trained before moving on to #2. But it IS awfully hard to turn down a 3 pound birthday gift, isn't it? She now weighs 11 and the girl's got 'girth'! Her brother, however, is slender, refined, has a lovely stance, and she's just a plow horse! Too funny!

Hi Everyboney!

I've missed you sooooooooooooo much! Things have been kind of crazy around here, so we don't get to come onto Dogstoer as much as we'd LOVE to! I'm celebrating my first birthday in my big crate, with my leg in a soft cast..........WHY, YOU ASK!? Because my little sister (the linebacker) tackle me off-guard and I sprained my foot/ankle, so I'm not really HAPPY, but Mommy just went and b0ught me puppy ice cream for later and some play toys and one that says BITE ME!!!! My Daddy's been spoiling me and Momma even got me a whoooooooole bunch of ballons to put in my crate to make it look more festive. We just tood some pictures so I'll have mom post them as soon as they get sized.

Me and Housetraining........

Th at's all I can say this morning since I'm stuck in this plastic thing that only allows me to stand up, turn around, and lay down. There's nothing in it. I'm confused. My sister is in the same kind of contraption right next to me.

I've overheard Mom talking to people about re-training, and even though I hear the words, I don't understand, so we're not doing too well. Poor Mom is CONFUSED but keeps to the 'ritual' and is consistently cruel to us.

:( Me sad,


You needn't bow or anything.......

Hey Guys!

Don't hold this against me, but I believe the Queen of England just made me an aristocrat (obviously an American is writing this!). Anyway; check out my 'new aristoratic name' (*and try not to be jealous!*)

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is: Count-Palatine Mojo the Pusillanimous of Chignall Duntisbourne Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Now if THAT'S not the coolest thing, what is? Gee, I sure hope that what I'm seeing changes so that all the html doesn't stay stuck there and I look like a complete dope! But if I do, so be it! I'm secure in myself and can handle the backlash ...... maybe :)))))
