Wowzer, I am three years old today. That's like, um, 21 years in human years. Which means, I can finally drink in public and get into pawsome clubs. Ha ha. As if I would...

I'm excited about today. My mom came up to me this morning and played with me right away. She usually is way too busy getting ready. But today must be my lucky day.

Speaking of which, my real lucky day was when my humans found me at this shelter place. Thank God in Heaven, that they liked me!

For the past three years, I've been living a great life: lots of romps, walks, new friends, a little bit of school, swims in lakes, rivers and oceans, lots of super healthy food and bones and rawhide. Many hours of petting and loving me. And since we moved to the burbs, I am king of the backyard - my very own backyard, yo!

I love my life! And I love my humans. Cannot wait to celebrate my pawsday with my best friends tonight. Woof, woof!


A Tragic Loss.

I just got the horrible news that my girlfriend Jeddah passed away this morning. I am pawfully sorry and pray that Jeddah's humans find comfort and solace in knowing that I am still around to love on them. I pray to God that He'll keep Jeddah a great spot in Doggy Heaven so she can wait for me there.

Obviously, I still have a lot of stuff to sniff, pee on, jump on, eat, fetch and a lot of years to spend with Wiebke and Paul but I know I'll see her again some day. :-)

You will always be my first love, Jeddah! A sad Woof! Woof!

Today's my 1st birthday! I'm sooo grown up now! My humans took me to Crissy Fields and I got to swim, play fetch, steal other doggies' balls and roll in the grass. What a day! I love being with my family. From that day they rescued me from that shelter, I've loved them with all my furry heart. As a gift to them, I've looked extra super-cute all day...haha. Woof!


Totally Teenager!

I'm SO grown up now! My parents had to get me a larger collar. Small doesn't fit anymore. Ha! I'm way too strong for these baby collars now...

Mom just returned from a business trip in L.A. As much as I like hanging w/ Dad, it was boring without her. Although, Daddy took me to the beach a lot. I dig Fort Funston!! I mean, literally. ;-)

Back to watching Mom work. Woof!

I'm So Grown Up, Dude!

My life is pawsome! I'm having a blast with my humans who are trying hard to give me enough time to play and exercise. I know how busy they are with work and church, friends and other stuff. But whatever they have on their To Do list, they always find time for me. Woof!
We hang out at the dog run near our house a lot these days. I've met SO MANY dogs recently. A lot of butt-sniffing, man! I think I'm behaving pretty well. At least, Mom lets me off leash when we get to the dog run and I always get to play for hours.
I'm not stupid so I know that Mom is happy to go there because she just has to take off the leash and I'm basically entertaining myself. I believe she can unwind a bit while I'm busy chasing balls and other dogs. Guess, it's a win-win situation for both of us. ;-)
I've also learned to sit and wait at every curb. Ok, there's still room for improvement. But usually, I sit down and wait for my humans to tell me when to go.
I love puppy class! My humans signed me up at SF Puppy Prep ( The teacher Aishe is SO cool. I'm always looking forward to our classes on Wednesdays.
Today, I'm in the office w/ Mom. I'm totally quiet. No barking. I'm just hanging out here, waiting for something to happen. Since some people complained about my barking and running around in the office, I'm trying hard to be better. I really want to get back out there and play with my friends Slider and Beane. But overall, puppy life is great! Woof, woof!


Fort Fun(ston) Rocks!

..or doggy heaven, like I call it. My humans took me to this huge doggy playground on Saturday. There were so many other dogs, I really didn't know where to run first. Sometimes I just don't want to listen to my parents when they call me (ok, most of the times, I won't listen) so they kept me on the leash for most of the time. I hope they will take me back soon. It really made my day!


I'm Back!

Yeah, my pneumonia is gone! Hooray for antibiotics, special food, a warm nest, and lots of love from my humans!

Special thanks to Mom who diligently put hot water bottles in my doggy bed so I was warm enough.

Now, that I have more energy, my humans have started training me. I kinda like it because there is so much opportunity for getting treats. I think I'm doing pretty good. At least, Mom and Dad say 'good boy' all the time. And then there is this new word that I keep hearing more and more. 'Off'. I really don't like that one. I've learned that I can't jump on furniture and needs to stay away from things when they say 'off'. Boring!!!

The good news, I'm almost ready for the big, green park world out there. On Sunday, I'm getting my rabies vaccination and then I'm done with all that kind of stuff. Maybe my humans can spend a bit more money on treats and new toys instead of the vet then?! Woof!

Speaking, um, barking of training: Mom and Dad have begun to leave me alone at home more often. They did it for the first time last Saturday night. They had been putting me 'away' in the kitchen before. Well, that's how I got used to being 'separated' from my favorite playmates for a while.

They probably thought that I might be barking or whining a bit that night while they were out for dinner with friends. But I totally proofed them wrong. I was so exhausted from the day that I just slept until they came home. I didn't even have any accidents! Am I a good puppy, or what?

I believe my humans know how much I love them. But sometimes I wish I could bark their language to let them know how much fun I have with them.

This doggy life is pawsome! Woof!


Being sick sucks big times!

Like my Daddy said, in my short life, I've been to the vet about six or seven times already. I think, by now, I'm finally without any worms or bugs. But last Saturday, the doc said that my cough didn't sound good at all. Mommy and Daddy had to leave me at the vet for a while so they could take an x-ray of my chest.
It felt like my humans had been gone for the longest time!!!

The doc found some black stuff on one of my lungs. He sent me home with antibiotics and some advice for my humans to watch me carefully.

Since that last visit, my cough got much worse. I can barely breathe and there is this mucus congesting my throat. Besides, I really want to sleep more but this sickness is keeping me awake all night. And Mommy and Daddy don't really get much sleep either.
They are very worried about me. I really want to bring them more joy and be a healthy puppy. I'm usually pretty mellow anyways but I enjoyed my play time with Mommy and Daddy. But this lung stuff is bugging me so much that I just want to hide under the couch or in a corner.
Last night, my family and I had the worst night. My whole body was shaking from the cough and I felt like I was suffocating. Mommy was crying a lot. My humans actually got dressed at 2am because they wanted to take me to the vet. That's how scared they were. I seemed to feel a bit better and got a bit more active after they got up. So Daddy decided to stay up with me for a while and had Mommy go back to bed. I don't remember when all of us were finally able to fall asleep?! Hm.
It's almost 9am now and Mommy has fed me , walked me in the backyard and made me do my business. I think I'm gonna take another nap now. Maybe Mommy can snuggle up in bed for another hour or so, too?! She really deserves some rest!
