I love my humans!

When I want to cuddle and play and my family is busy

Favorite Toy:
My bone or my tennis balls.

Favorite Food:
Tuna. We have never givin him any but when we open a can of tuna he goes crazy. ~thats by me (Sammi)

Favorite Walk:
Around the block. There are many dogs around my block.

Best Tricks:
I has many. Roll over, Play dead, hit me (he does hit you), high five, paw, kiss, and many many many more. (he's a fast learner. Our fastest trick was to teach him to play dead in 20 minutes) We are working on beg/

Arrival Story:
Arrival Story: We were camping in hurricane Ernesto. It was cold and rainy the whole time but super fun with my family, and two other families (who were my friends). My mom had a boyfriend and he had an english springer spaniel. She was so sweet and ever since she wanted one. We saw these 3 english springer spaniel puppies which were 3 months old for sale out for a walk. They were so cute and i never thought we would get a dog. (ive wanted one my whole life) We almost got Chip's brother, Bandit, until he started litterally ignoring my mom. We didnt want a dog who ignores a family member. Then we saw Tray. Tray was the "cuddly" one. He was perfect. We ended up taking him home. After we got home we went to one of the family we went camping with's house. Everyone who went camping was there. We were deciding on a name for Tray because my mom didnt like the name. We came up with the name Chip because on his white chest he has a brown diomond that looks like a chocolate chip. That is how we got his name. ~written by Sammi!

Info: Chip has a best Distemper. He has never bitten anyone orr shown his teeth to us. He loves to jump on top of me and pus me to the floor with front paws on each shoulder and lick my face to death. He will only do it to me and no one else. When Chip was just 6 months old he got a horrible disease, Mascatary Muscle Myocitis. That is when his blood cells attack his jaw muscles. If you look that up the dogs have BIG dents in their heads. Chip does not though, it is indented a little but we cant even notice it. We are just careful not to bump his head since he has no muscle to protect it. Chip loves everything exept he is scared of men, esspecialy men with moustaches. I dont know why but he is and he will do his "manly bark" (a lower bark than usual) but then again he is wagging his whole butt. That is how he got the name wiggle butt. When he is happy he will wag his whole butt. It is funny because when he is happy to see someone he will forward roll into their laps. it is quite funny. Also he makes funny noices like hmrrrrr...... and stuff like that. You have to see it to get it. Chip is the best dog in the whole wide world!

4/2/08....the leak

Last night was a very wierd night. We had a thunderstorm (which had mostly lightning and some distant rumbles, which doesn't scare me) Sammi came running downstair at like 10:20 pm and said there was a leak in her room. There sure was a leak because daddy had to go outside and get the ladder and we had to get paper towels and towels that they use to wipe my paws. We were all running around and my brother who went to bed at 9:00 was up there to see all the commotion. Sammi brought me in mom and dad's room to rest. we ended up back in Sammi's room while her bed which was next to the window was laying diagonally across the room. She slept like that. Sammi has 3 windows next to her bed. There are two windows and a semi circle above them. The corner of the semi circle one was leaking. Well thats my night!! Today Sammi finished reading her favorite book Marley and Me by John Grogen!!! Well I gotta go chase the squirrel outside. Bye!

Today is April Fools Day but I am just a dog so I really don't know it is April Fools Day or what it is so haha. I was bugging Sammi while she was doing homework and she said to be quiet because I was whining in her room because I wanted to sleep downstairs instead of on her bed in her room. The phone rang and I sprang to freedom (I'm a Springer) ran down the stairs as Sammi ran to get the phone because she didn't hear it and had to get it. I went by the kitchen, my usual spot, and plopped on the floor. Well, I've got some barking and chewing on my toys to do. Sniff ya later!

Yesterday honey came over. I was so happy to see her. She even brought me a present, tennis balls. She says she found them by a tennis court and they are brand new! I now have 2 tennis balls to play with, my new one and my old one. (I think there is more that they didnt give me yet) I was so happy because I got to lick all the water off of Sammi's legs when seh got out of the shower today! I don't get to do that a lot because she always has to go to school. She takes a shower and gets ready and THEN comes down to take me out of my crate, play with me, and feed me! Well I gotta run!
