whatever Sophie has. current special favorites are the frog, Wobbuffet the Kong Wubba, the tree stump stuffed with squeaky squirrels, rope flying disc, tennis balls, and the dog planet stuffed with tasty things.

Favorite Food:
EVO dry food. and EVO canned food. but not mixed together for some reason. hot dogs and string cheese for special training, jerky for regular training, and the occasional special treat.

Favorite Walk:
where there are squirrels to chase or cows to bark at. around the lake at the park is always fun.

Best Tricks:
jumping through hoops, ringing a bell to go outside

Arrival Story:
My mommy decided she needed a puppy to be her friend. She searched and searched on the internet, trying to decide what kind of puppy she wanted. Eventually she decided she liked Shelties and found a nice breeder. She picked me because I licked her nose. And we've been together ever since.

I'm a bilingual puppy- I understand Estonian and English. My mommy says she named me after a character in a book called Crime and Punishment. But most people call me Rascal cause it's easier to say.

Happy Birthday to Me!

So my family tells me that today is something called a birthday. I don't know what that means, cause I haven't had any before, but I've gotten all kinds of fun stuff! Yesterday, my family went to Cold Stone Creamery and they brought me home an ice cream all of my own! It was really yummy, I ate it all up. Felt really nice to have a cool treat on a hot summer day. Today, I've gotten a brand new leash and collar that match my stylish coat, a squeaky crab toy 'cause I live in Maryland, and a rawhide birthday card. I think I saw a doggie cupcake waiting for me for later.

I also went on a walk to the farmer's market, which was fun. I barked at squirrels on the way there and got lots of pets on the head.

I think I like this birthday thing!


Barking in the woods

My mom took me hiking today. It was a real long hike in the woods, around a lake. By the end, she was getting really slow and I had to pull her up the hills. It was lots of fun though, I got to splash around in a lot of streams and bark at a few squirrels. Maybe we'll get to go again when mom stops being all achy and tired.


I'm a good boy!

My mom and I went to obedience classes last night. We did sit-stay, down-stay, wait, and come. She was so worried that I would be hyper and not pay attention, cause I sometimes get distracted and jump and bark, but she said I was perfect. I stayed when I was supposed to stay and came when I was supposed to come and was a good boy. I got lots of treats, yum! I like being a good boy. The teacher lady talked about food, and gave a list of good foods, and my mom knew my food would be on it. I like my food, it's called EVO and is extra tasty. Oh yeah, speaking of food, last weekend my mom gave me an' the cats a special dinner of something she said was frozen raw chicken. It was yummy! She defrosted four of the little patties, one for me and one for each of the cats. But one of the cats didn't eat any and another one only ate a half, so I ended up getting two and a half all for me. I wanted more though. I give it four paws up! So good. Mom says I can have more next weekend if I'm good at flyball class. We've been practicing lots of fetch with a tug toy, and we have a special sheepie tug toy and special treats for flyball, so hopefully I'll do good.

That's all for now!
