Quick Bio:

December 9th 2004

Kirby loves to watch TV. Especially when animals are on. Even fish catch his fancy.

Kirby doesn't like it when his playmates squeek his toys. He doesn't get angry, he gets scared and curls up on my lap and whines. He hates to be brushed and runs when he see the comb.

Favorite Toy:
Right now he has a stuffed cactus he loves but he thinks it's a turtle.

Favorite Food:
Kirby sticks to his Science Diet Small Bites but likes to sneak cat food at times.

Favorite Walk:
Kirby LOVES Penn treaty park in Fishtown. He likes to chase the other dogs and just RUN RUN RUN!

Best Tricks:
Kirby likes to sing to the ABC Channel 6 action News theme song which is ironic cause his original name was Tenor.

Arrival Story:
I adopted Kirby from a breeder in 2005. He was 6 months old and was breed from champions.

Kirby's parents are Sammy and Auria, and his grandmother is Chelsea. I think he came from a litter of three, 2 boys and a girl. He's a city boy and was born right here in Philadelphia. Like all good city dog's he knows to avoid sidewalk grates. Kirby was attacked by a Pit Bull in May 2007. He had bite marks all over and had an incision from his back to his belly and all the way down his leg. I almost lost him but the Vet team at Univ. of Penn Veterinary hospital saved his life and I will be forever grateful. He was there for a week and I visited him everyday. The staff told me each time I would visit he would really perk up. I feel that helped with his healing...mine too. Check out my illustrations of Pets and stuff at:

So it has been a few years since I last posted on here. A lot has happened but mostly things are status quo. We are getting ready to move to a new place. Which always means adjustments and new routines but we can't stay here cuz it's too expensive. My Mom has a boyfriend now and he's pretty cool. He plays with me, takes me for walks, and brings me treats. I let him know that I'm the man of the house though. We go to his house every once in awhile but I'm not to crazy about that. Esther doesn't like it when we leave her alone either. She licks the hair off her back, so we've been staying here mostly. I have cabin fever because of all the snow. We don't get to the park too much right now. It's really icy over there and i can't walk very well. It's also really really cold because of the river. I can't wait til spring. I really need a haircut but I hate them. I'll try and write more from now on.

I was away for the Easter holiday. I got to go to the beach! I LOVE it there! I ran and ran on the beach. There were so many wild smells on the beach. I just love it! Its hard to run in the sand but i still love it. I got to see my friend Poco. We pass his house every day when we go for a walk around the block. My Nana was there she kept giving me treats. She tried to walk me but I rather walk with Mom. I was so tired by the time we got home to philly. I just crashed. Now its back to the daily grind. Mom is very busy with art projects this week. Check out her stuff at Her stuff rocks!



Oh My! London Bridge is...

The helicopter's are driving me crazy! Apparently the bridge between Allegheny and Girard has a big Crack in one of its beams and they had to shut it down. This is a BIG DEAL. I'm glad we are avoiding a tragedy like when the bridge collapsed in Minnesota but the helicopters are SO LOUD. And right over my Mom's house. This went on all night. It sounded like they were landing on the roof. And they were screwing up my HDTV! I couldn't watch DWTS with out a pixelated screen. UGh! I couldn't even go to the park cause the traffic is so bad! My neighborhood is in the middle of the detour and all the traffic is backed up. WE CAN"T CROSS THE STREET! And there are 7 cop cars and one of those news vans with the big tower. This is crazy! Well, the helicopter noise kinda scares me but I'll deal. Only 2 more days of this. We have to go out and pick up cat food for Esther but Mom's gonna wait til everyone gets home from work.

See you tomorrow!
