Favorite Food: I'm not picky, so um... EVERYTHING that fits in my mouth (except raw veggies - I will eat cooked veggies!). I once ate a whole loaf of bread.
Best Tricks: Sit, Stay, Speak (woof), Gentle (treat), Shake (south paw only), High Five (more like High Ten w/ both paws), Up / Down, Bang (play dead), Dance (jump & twirl), Jump (go vertical), and Roll Over.
Bio: You've never met a sweeter doggie than me!!! My true personality comes out when the food comes out... I'll do anything for treats! I loooooove people, but not *all* people... as I am an excellent judge of character. I've only growly growled at two people in my life - the VP at momma's work (he's kinda slimey) and a contractor (whom we did not end up hiring). I'm a silly pup - I love to make you laugh and hearing you laugh makes me act even sillier!
Ella came into our lives as Hope. We had been scouring the pages of PetFinder for months - one look at that smile and we were hooked. We submitted an application to AARF, had a home visit, followed by a trial period which started on 1/11/08, which rolled into three weeks of peeing and pooing her way into our lives. We just couldn't part with her sweet personality and her ginormous head. Upon signing the adoption papers, Ella became an official part of the pack on 2/2/08
The first time I met my peeps, I was unruly, counter surfing, and drinking from the toilet - basically a wild ball of puppy energy running amok at their house. I could not / would not sit still. I was a big blurry ball of brown fur.
Soon-to-be momma brought out the chicken treats, and oh.my.dog!!! It was like, bullet time from The Matrix... everything went ultra sloooow motion and my eyes got all huuuuge, my ears went full alert, my badonkadonk went *bonk* on the floor, and my tail started wagging hard and furious.
It was love at first sight... with the chicken treats, that is! As for the peeps, I figured that any peeps that offer me chicken treats after I counter surfed and drank outta their toilet were alright by me. ;o) The bonding would come a few days later - after our first nap / snuggle session on the couch.
Distinguishing Features: Chocolate brindle coat with white tipped anklets, white tipped tail, white chest, and a white diamond shaped marking on the back of the neck (affectionately known as the "luggage tag"). It has also been noted that as a pup, I had an unusually large noggin.
The peeps and I headed out
to the mountains this weekend.
The peeps are chillin'
and I'm chasing deer, fox, and squirrel.
The peeps are sleeping in
but I am remaining on schedule.
How to wake the peeps up
so that they stay on my breakfast schedule?
Release lots of stanky pooters
until they are forced to vacate the bed
and make me breakfast. :o)
So I went to see Dr. Kreeger today
and he said that my coocher infection
is all gone - I'm all better!
(the peeps say bad, I think it's better!)
is that I have to stay on the antibiotics
cos of the puncture wound in my ear
from my nasty kitteh run-in
a few days ago...
So two more weeks of antibiotics
just to make sure everything is good
and that my ear heals nicely.
That is TWO MORE WEEKS
of raising H - E - double hockey sticks!
I'm gonna find me a mole
and eat him...
then maybe chase a deer,
and get kicked in the face.
There is always the skunk route,
but antibiotics won't necessarily
protect me from the stench.
Oh oh oh! I could find me some
and nosh on that.
Oh, the possibilities!!!
