My mom!

Well, there's this one dog who lives down the street....

Favorite Toy:
Anything fuzzy!

Favorite Food:
I love everything!

Favorite Walk:
Any walk is a great walk!

Best Tricks:
Squeezing myself under the bed!

Arrival Story:
I was the first doggie to join the Rog-and-Tami family, in the summer of 2004. Others have followed, but there's still nodoggie better than me! Like my siblings, I was adopted from the wonderful Maxfund No-Kill Animal Shelter in Denver, where I'd been brought as a stray in need of medical care after an unfortunate encounter with a car. I'm all better, thanks to Maxfund's great care, but in some pictures, you can see a little scar on my forehead.

I'm a very friendly, gregarious, and gentle boy. I ADORE children. I'm a bit skittish around things like loud noises and sudden movements (the dishwasher door opening is SCARY!). When there's a doorbell sound on the Simpsons, I invariably bark at it! I like to lunge at the cat and give him an air-bite. It's my way of disciplining wayward animals! I'm very precise about peeing on bushes and trees, and sometimes can't make a decision about which side to pee from. I'll go back and forth, to-and-fro, trying to figure out the best angle. Sometimes I get frustrated and just move on to the next tree!

I've Been On Dogster Since:
November 4th 2007 More than 9 years!

The last couple of days have been difficult for me. The pressure in my lungs made it hard for me to lie down for more than a few moments. This morning at home, with the kind assistance of Dr. Ann Brandenburg-Schroeder of Beside Still Water, I made my way to the Rainbow Bridge. I made my passage without needing the final injection to stop my heart, so I was clearly ready.

Thanks to everydoggy for your support. Please give your humans a kiss for me.


Giving Thanks for a Good Thanksgiving!

Well, I made it through the Thanksgiving holiday, yippee! I had a LOT of turkey, and it was dee-licious. The weather was pretty nice for November, so I enjoyed several walks, too.

Today, I watched Mom bring a tree into the house. How convenient! It's like indoor plumbing for dogs, tee hee! It doesn't really smell like a real tree, though, and it has lots of lights and glittery stuff hanging from the branches. Humans are very strange sometimes.

I had another of my weekly lung fluid drainings last week. I seem to be having a harder time breathing, though, so I don't move around as much. Sometimes Mom brings me water because she notices when I don't get over to a water bowl. That's nice!

I hope everydoggy had a wonderful Thanksgiving!


It's Hamsgiving!

I have proclaimed the weekend before Thanksgiving to be Hamsgiving! So please give everydoggy a little sliver of ham if you have it! Mom says it's salty so I really shouldn't, but several months ago I told an animal psychic that I enjoy an occasional bit of ham. So she gave me a little hunk of low-sodium ham today. Yummy!

Mom and Dad seem to be worried about me. My lung tumors are giving me some breathing problems, I cough when I exert myself, and I'm having to go to CSU for weekly fluid-drainings. I wonder if that's why we doggies got early turkey dinners tonight? Everydoggy got to share a Jenny-O turkey & gravy dinner, mixed with brown rice and a little water. Dee-licious!

I hope I get to celebrate actual Thanksgiving, though, because I need more turkey. I'd also like some mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and green beans!

I hope everybody and everydoggy has a most wonderful Thanksgiving.
