Arrival Story: I came into my furever home about two weeks after Gypsy (Mama's first Dal) passed away. Mama was looking at DalSavers, a Dal rescue group in WI & IL, which is the same group that Gypsy was adopted from. She found these puppies that were being fostered literally a few blocks from Mama & Daddy's house. So, they came to look at us puppies along with my human Granma and Granpaw. Long story short, they brought home puppy Tipper and my Granma and Granpaw brought home puppy Maizy (my littermate) on June 24, Daddy's birthday. We were told by DalSavers that I was born in March, so my birthday became March 17th birthday since we didn't know the real date.
Bio: My Family and Furiends...
So, Maizy is my littermate sister and we literally live about ten blocks from each other. I get to go there when the "flying monkeys" (aka human siblings) visit Granma for babysitting. That is AWESOME, but Maizy and I often wonder what happened to our other brother and sister. Otherwise, my furbling, Maxxie, and I get along great and keep each other warm while sleeping in the same bed when the nights get cold.
I have made so many wonderful pals here on Dogster, and I can't imagine not acknowledging them. I can't list all of them, but those I hold dearest to me are Flicka , Buttons , Henry , Madison , and the cutest Basenji I know, Savannah aka Banners! . Again, these are just a handful of pups that I've had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know through Dogster.
Fun Facts About ME...
* I have a sweet personality, and believe that the "bad rap" that Dals seem to have is rubbish!
* I'm very laid back and don't play too much...I'd rather snooze on the couch :)
* I do not have allergies, unlike Gypsy and Maizy.
* I am GREAT at playing catch!!
* My favorite food is anything humans eat ;) I love watermelon, too!
* I don't really have a favorite toy, but I like to chew things...usually something stuffed...as in Mama's bears or someone's sock.
My Favorite Dogster "Spots"...
I've met most of my Dogster pals by participating in groups and visiting the Dogster forums . When I first joined Dogster, I had a lot more time on my paws...now, I don't because of Mama's work. Unfortunately, I just don't get the group time that I'd like and don't want to join more groups if I don't have the chance to participate. But I do have my favorites! :)
1. ConnectTheDOTS! for Dalmatians
2. Pawsome Pages (the "brains" who help us decorate our pages)
3. Pets That Love Fun
4. Simple Scraps For Dogs and Cats
5. There are also two private groups that I play in (sorry, can't name "names").
A Few More Dots...
Thank you for visiting my page. I hope that we can be pals, and that we may meet in the forums or groups to play together. Dogster is a GREAT place. Maxxie , Gypsy , and I have been on here since May 2008, and we plan to be here a very long time and look forward to the friendships, the friendly tips, and all around fun that comes with "being a Dogster".
Good Golly - it's been AGES since I've been here. Let me explain...
Mama has been crazy busy at work with long hours. Her job has really changed from the last time I was here. She still does MRI scans on animals, but now she does the CT scans, handles all the other images that come and go from her vet clinic, and does lots of confusing I.T. related stuff. Yeah - that I.T. stuff might as well be a foreign language...she's confused - chronically. But. a new neurologist started at the clinic and that's keeping Mama busier with MRIs so she doesn't have to work with the I.T. stuff as much.
The rest of us are hanging in there okay. Fortunately, we are all still healthy. I'm on Metacam and Tramadol for my sore elbows. I'm stiff and sore and, well, getting old, which breaks Mama's heart. But, when Quinnie comes home, I still show her who's boss, BOL! (Quinnie gets to go to work with Mama - I could go, too, but Mama says it's a long day for me, so I still go to Grandma's instead.)
Maxxie is good - but he had to go to the hospital last year with a sore back. Those Doxies and their back problems - YIKES! But, the good news is that he was able to recover with pain medications and anti-inflammatories. He can't do steps anymore (Mama says he knows his limits). He's not supposed to jump off furniture - but he's a Doxie and doesn't listen so good and jumps off the bed anyway which makes Mama cringe.
Quinnie is already two - TWO! She's a good girl - I have to give her that. Well behaved, sweet as can be. Her job is to wake up the kids in the morning and give Quinnie-hugs. Yeah, I supposed she's alright.
Well, I supposed I should go check the kitchen - supper just got done and there might be some for me! :)

For those of you who do not know (OK, probably mostly all of you, BOL!), Mama is a MRI Tech in a hospital. Well, today Mama had an opportunity to meet with the owner of a MRI company that scans animals in the veterinary setting about a job in our area!
Yeah...US ANIMALS! Can you believe it?
Mama says it'd be WAY COOL to see what we look like on the insides and to be able to see what's causing us to not feel so well sometimes. All-in-all, it was a GREAT meeting, and Mama is super excited and hopeful that she gets the position. Please keep your paws crossed, could you? :)
I wonder if Mama will need any "models"? Do you think they can see through my spots? *ponders*
