Arrival Story:
Some friends (Brandon & Emma) of mine decided not to date any more, and my friend Emma's dad was scared of him because he was part pit bull. She had to get rid of him and I recently had lost my Husky due to old age, so I took him in.

Ozzy taught me that he was smarter than most dogs. I would show him a command or a trick and he would always get it on the first try or the second. My youngest son is deaf, and Andre' taught Ozzy American Sign Language (A.S.L.). Ozzy taught himself or taught us that he would let Andre' know if the phone rang or someone was at the door, without being shown how. Ohio is trying to outlaw certain breeds of canines such as Pit's, pit mixes, rott's, rott mixes, wolf hybrids, any dog that is classified as a dangerous breed, or as Cesar calls them, Red Zone dog's. We need help to show that these dogs can be trained for service dogs, or be as harmless as the mimi poodle. They have already said that if this law gets passed, they will pick up all these breeds and have them destroyed.

Forums Motto:
"Punish the deed, not the breed."

Ozzy's Dog Gone Diary.

Saying good-bye to an old friend is hard, but worth it.

I have a really big soft spot for certain breeds of dogs. Huskies and pit-bulls are at the top of my list.

I have spoiled every dog in my neighborhood. One dog stood out from all the rest and stole my heart. Next door to a place I moved into about 3 1/2 years ago has the biggest husky I ever seen and known. I found out later thru research that he was an Alaskan Malamute, he was a Husky in my book with those pretty blues and his singing to me. This dog (LaStat) didn’t get along with very many people. He loved all kid’s, and all the stray cats, which would come in winter to sleep on him. Having Huskies in the past, I understood the big boy. I started going over to talk to him and give him treats. Pretty soon, the owner and older lady tried to give him to me, because he loved me more than them. Unfortunately I already had 4 dogs and couldn’t take him in. So being the dog lover I am, I made arrangements to take him on walks and to play with him as often as I could.

I noticed a week ago LaStat wasn’t being himself, he would take his treats and put them in a pile and return to his Dog house that was built into the side of a heated garage. I got up yesterday morning (2-14-2009) to go see my buddy and noticed his bright blue eyes was white and gray, I knew something was very wrong. Deb and her older mother came out to tell me he had a heart attack earlier that morning and they just got back from the vet. LaStat came over very slow wagging his tail. Deb told me that was the first wag all day. Deb said that the vet wanted to do surgerey because of an old injury that caused his intestines to wrap around his left lung, but he might not make it thru it. He said LaStat might need to be put to sleep. Deb said he isn’t going to die with strangers and brought him home. The vet said that the way he pull out and acted like his old self, it was probably a good idea to keep an eye on him and to bring him home to loved ones.

I went and put on my snow suit and sat with him all day, receiving my kisses. It started out like a normal day. I went and ate, and brought him a pork chop. He ate it and amazed me and Deb. My best friend Emma dropped by and has a couple of dogs in heat, and LaStat went and greeted her, just soaking in all the smells on her. This made me think that he might pull out of it. I went in to make a phone call and came back out. LaStat had grown weak in that 1/2 an hour and was hanging out his dog house. I went and sat next to him talking to him, and letting him know he was very special and that I loved him. His breathing was getting bad and I knew we only had a couple hours if that. Strangest thing, all the cats that slept with him came by and rubbed up against his nose, it was like they were saying goodbye too. Me and Deb pulled him out when he got to weak to hold his head up to look around. I sat there stroking him and waited for Deb to walk away. I told LaStat it was time for him to go home, that he wouldn’t feel pain any more. Deb came out to listen to his heart. She said his heart beat was irregular, then took her listening thing back in. Just before she got to the door only 15 feet away, He forced his big head up on my lap looked at me and took his last breath. I said goodbye buddy for the last time and cried. We buried him next to his favorite place to lay, last night at 12 midnight. I know why he came home from the vet, he wanted to die with those he loved and at home, not strangers.

LaStat had legs the size of most mens fore-arms, and when he stood up, he could look me in the eye, I'm 6'1". He weighed 130 lbs....

Rest in peace buddy......


My Daddy Cried

Dear diary,

I have the coolest dad, we do everything together. We go to the park and go for car rides, and every now and then, dad will drive next to a building where a lady always gives me a cheeseburger and a puppy treat, how cool is that!!! Then I do cool things with all my kids too. Andre' teaches me to talk and to do things most other dogs won't do. Then David sit with me and talks my ears off when we watch TV. The girls try to put human clothes on me, I try to run away, but they always catch me.

I like to sit under dad's feet when he is on the computer. He tells me about dogster and the friends I have. I want to meet them, but dad said they live really far away. Here lately, dad been sad. I try to cheer him up, but he just gives me a good rub and tells me I'm his buddy. Then I seen what dad was watching, it was video's about BSL. Some of those video's made my daddy cry. I put my head in his lap and looked into his eye's. Dad told me," No body taking his boy away". So I put my paw in his lap as if I understood. Dad said he hasn't had something to fight over for a long time, but he does now. I don't like seeing dad cry, he is stronger than I am, he is also more a fighter than I am. I love my family and will follow where ever they go and stand proud with them.
