June 16th 2007

I love jumping and running through the snow. I also love to cuddle in bed with mommy and daddy.

Not being able to chew on my big brothers' toys.

Favorite Toy:
My lion is gone - I tore all the fluff out of it. My new favorite toy is my Kong Wubba - although I am on my second one already. I tear them apart within a day!

Favorite Food:
EVO Red Meat Small Bites, Wellness Pure Rewards Chicken and Lamb Jerky - yuuum!, Peanut Butter, and the grilled chicken strips Mom puts in her salads!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere I can run!!

Best Tricks:
I am very talented at getting the treats out of my treat ball. I have learned exactly how to hold it between my paws and just gently shake it to get all the treats out.

Arrival Story:
When I was only a teeny tiny puppy my brothers and I were taken away from our doggy mommy and dropped off on the doorsteps of the rescue shelter. I was placed in a foster home and lived there until I was 16 weeks old. That is when my new human Mommy and older human brothers came and adopted me and made me a part of their family.

I love my mommy and daddy, as well as my 3 older human brothers. My partner in crime is my brother Matthew, who is a year older than me. He sneaks me Fruit Loops in the mornings, which mommy doesn't like very much. My other older brother, Jacob, loves to wrestle with me. I can wrestle all day long and never get tired of it. My oldest brother, Hayden, loves to play toss with me, throwing toys for me to chase and pounce on.

So pups here are my 5 Valentine Wishes...

1) I wish for an endless supply of stuffies that I can rip apart, desqueekify, and toss fluff all over the house.

2) I wish for a sister or brother - Daddy says this fall we can start looking!

3) I wish to make new friends, here on Dogster and IRL so I can have playdates.

4) I wish that every pup and kitty out there looking for a home finds their perfect furever home and they get tons and tons of love, just like I did!

Snow Snow and More Snow

So yesterday Daddy and my big brothers stayed home. Something about a snow storm. Actually they had one of these 'Snow Days' last week Friday too. But yesterday's storm was a big one. I know because I had to go out in it to go do my business.

I didn't have too much fun. When we were going out for my 4pm potty break Mommy got stuck in the snow. We were walking along, la di da di da. And all of a sudden Mommy is up to her hips in snow! She was laughing, trying to walk through the really deep snow, Daddy was watching from the kitchen laughing too. I was fine. I wasn't really sinking. But then I decided to walk in Mommy's tracks. I do that sometimes, walk where she has walked so it is easier in the deep snow. The only thing is I went front paws and head first into a very deep footprint and couldn't get out!! Since I was behind Mommy and she was just trying to get out of the snow herself she didn't notice until I started whimpering. She said that all she could see of me was the tip of my butt and my tail sticking up in the air. The rest of me was in the hole. So she came and pulled me out. She then carried me until we got to a place in the yard where the snow wasn't so deep.

Then I get to my favorite potty spot and the snow is up past Mommy's knees. She was moving around, stomping and pushing snow out of the way so I could have a spot to go potty. Daddy ended up dragging the neighbors small snowblower out back and blowing me an area where I can go potty and not be up to my eyeballs in snow. It's not fun squatting in the cold deep snow.

I love playing in the snow, but this is a little TOO much snow for me!! I don't like it when it is deeper than I am tall.

Well me, Mommy, and my brothers (they have another snow day today) are all going outside to play in the snow. Maybe Mommy will take some new pics and post them to share!


My Cousin Marabou

What a silly name - Marabou. Mommy says that it is a fluffy turkey feather that they use on fishing lures. Well my cousin Marabou definitely is fluffy!!

Marabou lives with my mommy's older brother and his family. She is a bichon frise and is a year older than me. I wanted to play with her so bad when she first came over to visit yesterday, but she acts like a spoiled princess. But that's ok, after a while she saw how much fun I was having playing with my toys and the kids and she decided to join in the fun too.

We ran around the house, chasing one another until we both collapsed from exhaustion. I went to go lay in my bed I have in the living room and she was already there! Taking up the entire bed too! I just nudged her over a bit and we laid together, taking a nice afternoon nap.

After Marabou and everyone left last night I overheard mommy and daddy talking about getting me a little doggy brother or sister. Daddy's not so sure. He would rather just have me and spoil me, but that doesn't stop my mommy from looking. Mommy has a knack of getting her way! BOL!

I guess we will see...
