Doggie Dynamics:

Quick Bio:
-purebred-blind -dog rescue

August 28th 1992

i just discovered liverwurst, and all i can say is "where have you been all my life?" other favorites: being held (anywhere, anytime), licking people's legs (mmm...salt) and telling other dogs what's up (i.e. getting in their faces and barking at them).

i really don't like those annoying logs in the dog run because i can't see them and i keep running into them (ouch! ruff!) BIGGEST PET PEEVE: high-pitched, yappy barking. please, don't do it. things will get ugly, and you don't want me in your face.

Favorite Toy:
wally, my pet walrus. i love to give him hell. (someone just told us he's actually a manatee, so we may have to change his name to manny, but i still love to give him hell, whatever he is.) i also love my GIANT mastiff-size rope toy & my soccer ball.

Favorite Food:
for treats, i LOVE cheese, scrambled eggs, dried turkey breast, raw turkey necks & marrow bones, and dr. becker's bites. for meals, mom feeds me nature's variety raw meat (i think i like venison the best) mixed with dr. harvey's canine health.

Favorite Walk:
tompkins square dog run (you can find me there two to four times a day... depending on the weather.)

Best Tricks:
besides being cute?if i'm feeling feisty,i can shoot a ball between my hind legs with my front paws.but just don't expect me to do it all the time, okay?(jeez, mom) i also know sit, paw, lie down, roll over, stand up, & beg...but sometimes i get confused.

Arrival Story:
i was found as a skinny stray with bald spots on the mean streets of ohio, so i was dropped off at a local animal shelter. fortunately, midwest boston terrier rescue found me, and an awesome foster family took me in and cared for me as one of their own. as a senior special needs boston (i'm blind), my foster family thought i might be hard to place, but it didn't take very long for my future mom to see me on and fall instantly in love! so, on august 28, 2004, my new mom flew to cleveland, and we met her at the airport. now, i'm happy as a clam and snug as a bug in a rug in my forever home in new york city!

shady crossed the rainbow bridge on the morning of november 24, 2008. i was with her as she passed, holding her head, rubbing her ears, kissing her face, and telling her she's a good dog and i love her. rest in peace my beloved little shady. i love you forever and i feel lucky and honored to have known you. you are an inspiration and a legend. i miss you, sweet angel.
