Winnie loves to go to the Redondo Beach Dog Park and play ball. She loves to leap and flip when catching high-flyers. She also loves to bark and race with the dogs in the small dog pen or wrestle with a friend, in particular best buddies Luc and Joey.
skateboards, bicycles, motorcycles and other wheeled things
Winnie loves tennis balls, her big, blue Jolly Ball, and her large, stuffed hedgehog that squeaks in five different places
New fave: CHEESE!
Quite honestly, when you get down to it, Winnie would much rather run than walk!
Winnie knows touch, wave, shake, high-five, down, wait, place and a few others so far. Also, Winnie can flip when going up for a ball and adeptly catches high-flyers.
Winnie came all of the way from Oregon to live with me in California. She was a brave girl and flew here all by herself when she was just five months old. I watched while the man at the airport picked-up Winnie's crate with a fork-lift (!) and brought her to me. It was an exciting day. Winnie's official name is M. Joie de Vivre and it fits her perfectly!
Winnie is a good and smart girl with a sense of humor. She has a pretty body with lovely proportions. Weighing in at a bit over 40 lbs, she is petite and compact. Her size is quite handy and has turned out to be one of the things I absolutely love about Winnie. Also, I think it's one of the reasons why she is able to be so athletic. Winnie has a beautiful, smooth walk and a spirited prance, too. In addition, she is a super-fast runner. Overall, her movements are delightful to watch. Winnie loves children and, when she sees a child at the dog park, she tries to make friends by dropping her ball at their feet. She will play patiently with a child as long as the child is willing and tries very hard to follow their directions. Winnie loves her cousin, Luc. She sees him on holidays and, sometimes, in-between. When she discovers he's in town, she shows her delight by doing enthusiastic donuts in the grassy backyard. We have just recently begun visiting the dog beach in Long Beach and that has become a new hot-spot for my girl. Winnie is a little gem and proof-positive that good things come in small packages.
I may be pretty, but I am all dog!

Mom and I are bravely putting this out there in order to hopefully help someone else. As I wrote in my diary, I was in the hospital. I've had a few bouts of illness and, much to our surprise, the result is that most likely it's all been related to Addison's Disease. Yep. I am now a special needs pup. We are all "special" in our own way, though, right? : ) Anyway, when the vet said she sent off the test, Mom thought, "Oh, no big deal" but had that feeling in the pit of her stomach. The test came back waaay positive and now I am to receive regular injections and, for the present, I'm on prednisone. All I can say is that I've never been a good eater and now I LOVE food! Plus, I am more like my playful self again. I wasn't eating at all and was slowly sinking away. Truly. This has made all the difference. Thank goodness to my vet who caught it and started me on fluids and other treatment and saved my life. We thought I had a kidney infection and it wasn't that at all. We are just glad we know and are putting this out there so if someone else has mysterious illnesses that seem to reoccur, you might want to check for Addison's. Thank goodness our vet did. It saved my life.

I am having a sleep-over, but it isn't necessarily the fun kind. I have a kidney infection and am staying at my vet's for a few nights. Mom will miss me big-time and is hoping I'll be home again, very soon, and as good as new.

Recently I wrote about going on the pack walk. Mom and I went again today. It was good practice and all six of us pups were great. A weird thing happened today, though, and I would like to talk about it. It's a bit disconcerting. We had done our walk and were down-staying in front of Starbucks and practicing avoiding distractions and such. A man was walking by with two cute little boys. Mom was just starting to comment that kids are my favorite, which is true. The next thing we knew, a little boy kicked me right in the jaw! Yes he did! Mom was so surprised and we both handled it well. I just didn't react. Mom is thinking that the good thing that came out of this distressing incident is that perhaps that means I will be a good therapy dog. I've been very patient with kids, but this one was more than a test. I have moved beyond this undesirable incident, but Mom is still feeling rather badly about it. The man said, "Sorry!" and grabbed his son by the hand and high-tailed it out of there. We hope he had a word with that son, later, though. Anyway, people are surprising sometimes and us dogs are good to be as patient as we are with them.
