Arrival Story:
My mommy tells me that my daddy came home one night and said they could finally get a dog. (He thought the cats were too boring, so he wanted a little excitement in the house!) He saw my picture on because someone surrendered me at the pound, and I was so sad that they might put me to sleep! I'm just a baby! But the next morning my mommy came in and took one look at me in person and decided to take me home! I was so excited! I may be just a puppy, but I'm completely housetrained, and I never leave my mommy's side.

I have 2 brothers ~ Sammy and Pumpkin, and 2 sisters ~ Tigger and KC. They don't like me too much yet, but with a face like this, how can they resist for long?? UPDATE: I now have 3 sisters! Yikes! But my new baby sister Zoe and I have so much fun! She's not afraid of me, even though she's so small! Woof!

OK, I admit it. I'm jealous.

I can't believe it. I just can't. This can't be happening to me. I can't possibly have a new sister. Don't get me wrong, she's cute and all, but for over a year, I've been mommy's favorite (albeit only) doggie. Hmph. I'm man enough to admit I'm jealous.

Let me start at the beginning. A few days ago, my mommy left with her friend for a few hours and when she came back, she had a new puppy. Now, I'm always excited to play with new doggy friends, but after a while I realized that this wasn't just a was my new sister! Uh oh! Well, what's a doggy to do? I could tell right away that mommy was paying more attention to her than to me. Sure, she's not fully potty trained yet, so mommy has to work with her, but I mean, c'mon. I was here first! I will not be ignored! I will throw a temper tantrum if necessary! Don't make me do it!

I know, I know, I'm being a bit immature. But trust me, I've stooped even lower. I won't let Bailey play with my toys ~ as soon as she gets a hold of one, I go and snatch it away from her or chase her around until I can get it. And as soon as mommy or daddy start petting her, I go right over and stick my very large head in front of her so they have to pet me too. Bring home a sister will they? I'll teach them not to do that again! But in all honesty, she is growing on me and it sure is nice to have someone to play with all the time!

I even heard mommy say that she was glad I was letting her sleep. I guess she didn't like getting up in the middle of the night to play. I can't understand that, but I guess I'll play with Bailey now instead!

Kisses to all!


My best friend Prince

Woof! I know it's been forever since I wrote anything in my diary, but when you are the most popular dog in town, your life gets pretty hectic! Well, MAYBE I'm exaggerating a little, but not much! Everyone loves to see me at the doggie park! As soon as I get cloase to the gate I can hear people saying "Cocoa's here!". I LOOOOOOVE to play with the other dogs. But, my bestest friend in the whole wide world is Prince. That's short for Prince Charming, and he's a yellow lab.

Prince is the first doggie I met when I started going to the doggie park and we have been inseparable ever since! We play together so rough and tumble that it sounds like we're fighting, but we're not. Our mommies laugh because we even go to the bathroom at the same time. We're such good friends that Prince gets jealous whenever I play with other doggies. I hate that he gets jealous, but I love everyone! Our mommies even schedule "playdates" so we can play together, especially now that it gets dark so early! :-)

Last weekend, my Aunt Karen (Prince's mommy) "dogsat" me while my mommy went away for a day. Prince and I played for like 7 hours! I was so tired when I got home that I didn't even want to get up to go get ice cream with mommy! She still brought me some anyway!

Well, that's all for now! Talk to you soon! WOOF!


I'm still here!

Howdy all!

Whew! I've been having so much fun that I've forgotten to have my mommy write an entry for me - seein' as how I can't type, ya know? I've been getting ALOT of exercise lately! My mommy's been taking me to this park near our home, and I get to run and play with lots of other dogs! Wow! It is so much fun! My new favorite thing to do is to ride in the car. I just sit in the back and hang my head out the window and my ears and tongue flap around like nobody's business! Life is good!

I keep hearing mommy and daddy talk about what kind of dog I am. THe vet lady said definitely lab and maybe great dane, but mommy doesn't think so now. As I get older, I'm starting to look different. I've heard people say part bullmastiff, and part Rhodesian Ridgeback, but I know my mommy doesn't care. She loves me just the way I am!

On Saturday, mommy is taking me to PetSmart to get groomed. I don't like the water, so I hope this won't be too bad! I think if I wasn't so big, mommy would give me a bath herself, but I'm a horse and she can't life me into the tub anymore. In fact, at my last visit to the vet (I went with my sister Tigger, cuz I just wanted to ride in the car) I weighed 88 pounds! Yikes! I'm not even nine months old yet! I'm definitely starting to think that I'll be over 100 pounds here soon!

Well, that's all for now...have a great day everyone!
