I love my stuffies and squeekies! Actually, they were Rajah's, but now that I'm here, they're mine all mine!!!!

Pet-Peeves:
I don't like it when I'm not getting any attention from Casey or Rajah. Strange people trying to pet me is also pretty annoying.

Favorite Toy:
Anything that I can tear the stuffing out of or play tug-of-war with Rajah

Favorite Food:
I am the fastest eater in the west, so I don't taste much of what goes down. I like my treats, though, and random stuff from the sidewalk.

Favorite Walk:
The best spot is the island by the Yellowstone River, because I can run around off-leash, and there are so many smells and dogs to meet.

Best Tricks:
I do a pretty mean flying nun impersonation, and a Chewbacca impersonation.

Arrival Story:
I had been at a no-kill shelter for a month after my previous owner dropped me off because she was going to college and couldn't take care of me any more. In order to help me find a home, the shelter picked me as "pet of the week" for the local newspaper. This was so lucky! Casey, my new mom, took my photo for the newspaper column featuring me, and loved me right away. She almost didn't get me, though, because before she finally called the shelter to adopt me, another family had come to pick me up for a trial period. They returned me that night because I had chewed on something, which was another lucky break! Casey came to get me the next day, and now I am the princess of her family!

Bio:
I am having a great time in my new home. I have a great big yard to share with Rajah, my special man! I have lots of toys, and I walk really well with Casey and Rajah around the neighborhood. We take lots of trips to a big park that's on an island in the Yellowstone River, and I get to run and frolic through the woods (and snow!) There are lots of other dogs there, and I make lots of friends. I also come back when I'm called (unless I'm meeting a new pup pal), and I help Casey find Rajah when he wanders too far. Rajah and I spend our day patrolling the street from the couch or the yard. I am a very good guard dog, and I don't let anyone in the house unless Casey says its okay (or they have yummy treats!)

Just my size

Rumor has it that Casey and Dan are making the annual pilgrimage to Idaho to see the fam. (I know - It's totally not fair that Rajah and I are not invited. We wouldn't eat the cats - Promise!!)

But the regular kennel has raised it's rates to far more than "regular" prices. At least it's more than what Casey can afford ($20/day - PER DOG! and for NINE DAYS? Fuggedaboutit!)

So she had a recommend from a co-worker and a rescue coordinator about another kennel that costs less than half that.

So off we went to check the place out.
Indoor/outdoor kennels? Check.
Play yard? Check.
Secure fencing? Check.
Kind owner? Check and check.

So we are let loose in the play yard to make sure it suits us. The first thing Rajah and I do? Yep, take a nice post-dinner squat. Classy. Then, like usual, I have to clean up after Rajah.
Casey found this embarrassing and offensive to our prospective nanny.

"Oh, she's one of those," the lady said. "I have shelties, so I'm used to it."

Hmm...this lady might be alright!

Then, I saw the most amazing thing of all - just on the other side of the fence, was this curious dog-sized HORSE! It was about the same size as the Great Pyr guarding it!

I looked, and paced, and sniffed, and finally barked at it a bit. No response. Hmph.
Not the most friendly of creatures, if you ask me.

I guess they are used to dogs barking at them. I think I'll have my work cut out for me!

 

Summertime, and the livin' isn't so easy

Summertime should be a time to relax in my yard, lolling around in the sun on the lush green grass.

Unfortunately, summertime is also the time for hoards of Children At Large (CAL).

Being as we live on a big hill, the kids like to take their bikes and scooters up the hill, then ride or coast down, right past the fence.

Part of my yard-guarding duties are the moving along of children and all animals walking past our fence, which directly abuts the sidewalk.

So you see, pups, my summer so far has been far from relaxing.

Not to mention the vile zapper collar Casey makes me wear. This means I can't get right up on the fence to move these kids along. No. I'm stuck about 3 feet back, forced to yell at them until the move on.

Hmph.

In good news, my favorite neighbor, Tom, is back from his week-long vacation. This means he can resume his daily visits to the yard as he passes on his walks. I like Tom. He doesn't give me treats like my other neighbors, but he can give a mean ear rub. And that makes up for a lot!

Our pei-pal, Wrinkles is not doing so well.
They think it might be the big C.
Boo. :(

But at least she is getting the awesome mom-made chicken and rice! Yum!

So we're sending out some POTP love to this sweetie pie and her family...
