Arrival Story:
Sarge is an Akita / Shepherd / Wolf mix!!! 34" at the shoulder and 138#!!!! I BLAME LINDA (and KIM!)! This may not be completely accurate but this is the story as I got it from Linda. She calls me up at work, tells me this sad sap story about this dog whose owner left him in the pound after the last time he'd been picked up for running loose. Aparantly the guy couldn't figure out how to get or use a leash.... and they lived in the city. So Linda's friend, Kim, rescued the dog from the pound and was going to send the dog to her parents' house in the Lower 48. Apparantly the airlines wouldn't take him because he's too big. So now she's stuuck with this dog she can't keep. The dog was staying at a friends cabin, but it was a very temporary situation. Knowing what a SUCKER i am for dogs with sad-sappy stories (just ask Lupe!) Linda thought of me. I agreed to meet the dog to see if he and Emit got along..... they did. I agreed to keep him until they found a home for him. After one night with this guy............... he found a home. **sigh** here we go again! :o) He's still squatting so I'm guessing he can't be more than a yr and a half old... max. And he's very skinny with some skin 'issues' we're working on. We'll get him back into shape in no time! -----------------------Addendum--- ---------------------- It took a while - but he's all better!

Bio:
The Kids have their own photo album at http://community.webshots.com/user /rosietx1 -- come visit! Sarge is a GREAT dog........ but I fear my life is too sedentary for him. I'm putting him on the addoption list because I think he belongs with a family. He's another gentle giant like Emit. Actually - his manerisms remind me SO MUCH of Emit when he was a puppy that I would think they were of the same little if Sarge wasn't 11 years younger. I love this dog and he's welcome to stay here with us, but just like children, the dog's needs should come first. Sarge would be great as a family dog, or for someone at least who has an active life. Someone who likes to hike or hunt. Now, he's got this personality that makes you think he's dumb... but again, like Emit, he's training up very nicely and has shown me that he's no ditz. He's learned things here around the house with no formal training. I will start that kind of training with him this spring when the snow is gone. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to meet Sarge and/or would like to know more about him and meet him. 460-0027 rrosie@rtx1.com

Today is the Mutt March at AlaskaLand (Pioneer Park) amd I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. Moms truck is a black hole of mostly mail and other junk that enters the truck and never leaves... I just know my leash is in there somewhere... but we did have another person with another dog staying here for a while... so maybe he took it. Either way, since Mom couldn't find my leash or Lulus harness, she ran to Petco last night about 15 min before they closed and got us new ones. Mine's red again, but Lulu got pink this time, since she's a prissy little girl.

The alarm went off at 0700 and I thought we were going to go early. But mom said she needs her coffee and computer game time and time to wake up before we can go anywhere. *sigh* but it's MY day and I think that should start as soon as the alarm goes off. Pfft - whatever...

I get to see my friends today!!!!!!!!!!!! And make some new ones!!!!!!!!!!! And since I'm the big boy - I get to wear my saddle bags and carry stuff for everyone too!

I'm so excited!

 

Lupe said I have to... and Kiana has one....

Okay... my sister is much more of a techie dog than I am. I'm more likely to eat the computer than look at it, but she shook her paw at me and told me to at least try. *sigh* fine... she's so bossy.

My friend Kiana has a blog too... that's how I knew she was coming to play with me when my mom her her bday BBQ... but then her moms forgot her. FORGOT her... can you believe it? I mean, from listening to how these people talk, it's not every day that your friends tell you "Come on over and DON'T FORGET to bering the dogs!!" But.. they did...

I watch both of their cars pull in and neither one of them had a dog in it. I was very bummed... we email back and forth since we can't really say nuthin' here on Dogster that's not family friendly... I think we've gotten it out of our systems now though... Kiana got them back real good. In her sheer depression that day from missing the BBQ it seems she had a little too much comfort food and hurled it up on the floor **har har har** I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type here **har har har** it was the same color as the floor so one of her moms stepped in it!! WOOF WOOF! Is that awesome or what!

Anyhow... my own mom is supposed to be at work today but is going to visit some of her people who are here visiting from the nave or from Mexico or both... didn't quite understand all that... but she's been getting the word out about the Mutt March today too. I'm so excited...
