she likes being the most comfortable possible, food, fans, a/c, hands, and baby beanie babies
vacuum cleaners, empty bowls, baths, people who don't pet, squirrels
her taco bell chihuahua
peanut butter bones from wal-mart, begged people food
going to "porkchop's" house. porkchop is a man, not a dog.
sitting, she knows that real good. staying out of the kitchen while cooking is happening.
when our previous dog died, the poker guys gave us money to get a new dog. they also gave us a book on how to train a dog. we went to the dog pound, asked for a freindly dog that was a fixed female. they said, "we have just the one." we got her the first day of christmas vacation. we had 8 days to teach her how to behave in a house by herself, because we'd have to go back to work. other than taking an occasional stroll through the "forbidden room," she does OK. well, she can't resist taking a soap wrapper out of a garbage can but she tries her best.
she can spot an old person who may be tempted to feed her a mile a way. she has made it into 17 of the neighbors houses. she never met an open door that she didn't take advantage of. Dot's favorite saying or motto is "It's hard Being a pup."
it's hard bein' a pup

Diary pick on June 19, 2009.
Go! Dog Go! by P. D. Eastman.
That book has everything, adventure, romance, fashion tips. Plus it is the book mom uses to help the boys learn how to read so I've heard it a million times.
favorite tv show:
Martha Speaks. It is on PBS so check your local listings. It is about a dog that ate alphabet soup and now she speaks like a person. She acts just like me.
This is from Martha Speaks.

Arrived on the Bridge:
I arrived on the Rainbow Bridge on Sept. 12, 2009. I was so happy to see all my dogster pals that I had missed. All we do is run and play and eat. It's great.

As most of you know, Say Media in it's infinite wisdom has decided to shut down the Dogster Community. The Community which has been the heart of Dogster. We are so upset we feel like biting them on the butt.
We have been on Dogster for 9 years. It would have been 10 in August. When we first joined Dogster all you could do was put a dog in a corral and take a stroll.
Later on they added pup pal requests, diary entries and pmail. Then the forums, Dogster Plus, the rosettes, groups and special gifts.
They had the coolest dog and cat contests. They had the birthday strolls, the holiday strolls, the birthday parades. They had the scavenger hunt, the trivia games.
They had wonderful friends to help with good advice. They had friends who held us up when we were sad or worried. There were kind and generous people who would surprise us with gifts out of the blue. Not just virtual gifts but presents that would come in the mail. It was an anonymous donor who bought me my first plus membership. I know some people felt that they were being picked on, but I have never felt that way. I have only felt the love and kindness and loyalty, the people on Dogster always took the best part of their dog's personality and gave it to each other.
Another way that Dogster has helped me is as a person I have always been a little shy and awkward. But, when I could write as Dorothy or Lucky and be fierce. And I always enjoyed reading everyone else's diaries. They were funny or sad or playful. They were uplifting.
Finally, I am sad because when Dorothy went to the bridge, I got so much support and love. I knew that Dot was not really gone as long as I could see her pages.
I am going to give being a person a try. Please, please, please look me up on Facebook. Tracy Grote. I have a picture of Lucky as my picture. I love you all.
Now I'm going to stop crying and try to close my pages.

Thanks a heap for all the birthday, Gotcha day presents. Life on the bridge is good. Of course, I have grandma to hang out with sometimes. (Of course there is no time in heaven). Anyway, thanks for all the well-wishes.
I'm watching my family. Mom is still trying to get paid from her old work, but, many of the parents of the children she taught have asked if she would be willing to "sit" with their children for a few hours here or there. They have also told mom that when she finds a new place to let them know and they will enroll their kids in that school, so mom is coming to a business with business. (That has to be good).
Dad has finally got an assistant, so he does not have to travel to three different offices. We are all glad of that, because our car is getting ready to join me in heaven. (Although, they keep calling the car Lazarus, because they keep raising it from the dead).
Big and Little and Jake and Luke are all doing well in school. Jake will be applying to law school next year(maybe he can't help mom get paid).
The weather outside has not been frightful, but really quite delightful. It's 60 degrees and Lucky only comes in to eat treaties. She is doing a good job watching my family on earth, while I watch them in heaven.
Now, back to the ham!

Mom is home with me again. It seems the place she worked has finally bit the dust. Mom worked as a teacher at a pre-school and daycare. The first location she worked at closed in Sept. So in Oct. they brought mom in to the main location to teach. Mom could tell they were in trouble, but all of her co-workers were very dedicated(some had been there since it opened), so they all pulled together to make it work.
But, the daycare had a NO PAY, NO STAY policy. And unfortunately, they did not pay the staff, so the staff didn't stay. On Monday the staff(x-staff) all went together to unemployment and wage and hour and legal aid and now that's all mom can say about it.
I am happy because that means that mom will be staying home with me for a while. This means that she can let me go out and then as soon as she sits down, I will want to come back in. This means I do not have to just look out the window when the mailman comes or the garbage truck. This means I can be on squirrel patrol all the time. This means I don't have to take a walk when it is dark outside. This means mom will have someone to share her delicious lunch with(me!).
Of course there are some downsides to mom staying home, like mom's need to vacuum. (Come on mom-we don't even have carpeting). And mom's need to empty the trash everytime it gets smelly.(that's when it's good).
But all in all I'm glad mom is home. She can help me decorate for Christmas. I will help her bake cookies. YUM!
