Arrival Story:
At our family reunion, my second cousin, once removed, brought her new DDB puppy. I fell in love with him. After I did the research on this breed, I knew this dog would make an ideal service dog for my needs. I planned to get a puppy from my cousins new business next year, but my current SD became ill and I had to retire her. My cousin told me where she got one of her other dogs, so I called the breeder in Ohio. She had a girl puppy!!!! I flew all the way accross the US to get her. She is being trained as a Service Dog for myself. Three weeks later, I lost my faithful SD, Brooke. I think about her every day.

My life as a service dog

The results are in from Hailey's Penn Hip score and she failed. I knew she would, she failed the preliminary one from the Orthopeadic Foundation of Animals (OFA). My dreams of her becoming a service dog are gone. Next month, I go to my annual service dog training near Niagra Falls, Canada and she will be staying home. I am in a lawsuit with the breeders and that's all I can say about that. I pray that something works out.

She sure is a sweet dog, but I have stopped al training to be a service dog. She still loves to bring me plastic water bottles, but that's all.


First Birthday

I just had my first birthday. I got a big frosted coated doughnut with sprinkles on it.

I've grown very big now. I'm 95 pounds and my head big and solid like Dogue de Bordeau should be. I', still a little wobbly on my hind legs, but my vet tells me that us "bigger" dogs will get the hind end mucscles within our 2nd year.

My favorite toys are my frisbees. I can't catch 'em like the other dogs, but I can still run after them. I can also fetch a water bottle and bring it back to you. I can;t open the fridge yer to get it, but that's comeing...you just wait and see.

My favorite places to go are the pet store and my veterinarian's office. They can't wait to see me and I get treats at both places


Temprament tested

I had a temprament test today and I passed with flying colors! The tester even inquired about buying me. Mom says' "Fat Chance"!

I've been seeing a professional trainer lately and you should see me now! I now wear the German Hermsprenger collar( the prong one). It's not so bad after all. Mom put it around her neck and it just causes a little pressure. It covers less surface area than the wide collars, so maybe it's better. Mom says I heel so nice with it. Actually, I think I'm an angel! You should see me "platz"! I can get down on my belly in a heartbeat when I hear that command.

I'm now 46 pounds and 5 1/2months old and I'm only half grown! I can eat six cups of kibble in one day and leap over tall couches in a single bound. Just joking about the couch, but I tried! If only you could hear me snore. I can't , but Mom says I'm really loud.

The weather has really been bad lately, so my mom put me on the treadmill to get some exercise. I think she also puts me on there so she doesn't have to stand out in the cold for too long while she waits for me to do my business, but don't tell her that I'm on to her! Anyway, I really like the treadmill. Sometimes, I just stand on it and wait for Mom to turn it on. It's a funny thing though, it makes Mom laugh!
