Arrival Story: I was brought into Riverside Veterinary Hospital at 6 months old to be put down for being aggressive. Rachel took one look at me and knew that I didn't have a mean bone in my body. She convinced my previous owner to relinquish her rights and Rachel took me home to monitor me for behavioral problems. Of course, I had none so I have stayed on as a permanent member of the family.
Bio: I got really sick during my 1st year with Rachel. I was bit by a tick and ended up with a disease that I can't spell. It paralyzed me and gave me an extremely high fever. Rachel worked at the Vet's office so she took my x-rays and ran my blood tests. When I got better, I was like a little puppy in a big dog body. Rachel had to find me a new home where I could run. I didn't like it there so I ran away. The humane society ended up with me and ran my picture in the paper so I could be adopted. Rachel saw my picture and immediately went to the Humane Society with my medicine. The nice people at the shelter sent me home with her. They didn't even charge her any money for my stay. I was bound and determined to stay with Rachel. Now she is bound and determined to keep me. We're inseperable. :0)
We wish you a furry Christmas............AND A YAAAAAAPPY NEW YEAR! BARK BARK BAROO! Bones, Bones, Bones, and more Bones.... What more could a pup ask for? OOOH - I got a special treat last night too - ALPO! Rachel saves that as a treat for us on special occasions. With good reason... her house smelled of digesting ALPO for the majority of the night. We love it but it does us like chili does Rachel's brother. BOL! I got in trouble though last night. The kitties got a toy and I wanted to play too. Unfortunately, my "play growl" sounded an awful lot like my "IT'S ALL MINE!" growl and Rachel didn't like that. I've got to keep my nice grrs when I'm in the house. I just get so excited and don't think about stuff like that. Oh well! I'm hoping I'll get to go outside today. I know Rachel hates cleaning my feet and it's been raining cats for the past few days.... BUT I MUST HAVE DE DIRT! Well - I'm tapped out! Later Dude!
I tried to do this yesterday but Constance hogged the computer. I found out something yesterday! Rachel is getting a Christmas Tree this weekend. I LOVE CHRISTMAS TREES! I was really good last year. I didn't pee on it. I'm going to be really good this year too because I have a stocking. I don't want cat treats for Christmas. I'm really hoping for some rawhides and a new ball. I really want an ID tag too just in case. I try to get out and run sometimes and if I get lost, I want someone to be able to help me get home. We'll see what Rachel puts in it. I CAN'T WAIT FOR SANTA... what if he's late???? I hope Constance doesn't scare him off. She doesn't really like men that much. Well, I think Rachel is trying to get ready for work and I like getting in her way when she's running around. Brand new day! LOTS of stuff to do! Later, dude!
I can't wait for tomorrow! I don't know what is going to happen but anything has got to be more exciting than today! It has rained almost all day. Rachel went back to work and I've been cooped up - BORED STUPID! She let me outside for a little while today but that has a downside. Before I come in, she puts my feets in a bowl of water to wash them. I can't help it. I like to dig and the muddier the dirt the better. I guess it's worth the sacrifice. She gave me a haircut on my feet yesterday because they were so NASTY. Heeheehee. I'll be honest - I look like I'm crossed with a Clydesdale horse. Yep - that's me - Hoss. ;0) Well - I'm going to go now. Bark at ya later, Dude!
