My Birthday!

Today is my birthday! I am one whole year old! Mom has been slipping me extra treats today. It's a shame it's raining today, because mom never wants to play outside in the rain. It has been raining most of this month! I hope it stops soon.



A Sister Reunion

On sunday we got in the car, after a long search for my leash, to go visit my sisters. Upon arriving at our destination, mom was VERY pleased to find that I had chewed off the clip for my leash. Lucky for her, there was a spare leash in the car. Granted it was the kind that just loops around your neck, but it was a leash! Liberty was already there and we played and took pictures together. Then Sarbina arrived, and we played some more! We waited an hour or two more for Sophia to finally arrive. I hadn't seen her since mom picked me up to officially take me home with her. I was a little tired and cranky at that point, but I still wanted to play! We took some more pictures and decided it was time to leave because the humans were cold. We went out to lunch but I had to wait in the car(mom was very uncomfortable about this but didn't have much say in the matter since grandma was driving). I slept the whole way home though!


Barfing & New Year's

On Tuesday I started barfing a lot. Mom took me over to the animal hospital where I moped and got x-rayed and some fluids. There was some cotton in my belly from a toy(which I later pooped out). So I was sent home and told to not eat or drink until the next morning. That stunk! I felt a lot better by that night, though.

And Happy New Year everyone! I got a lot of yummy treats. 2009!

Yesterday I got spayed! It was no fun at all but there were no problems. Mom says I also had a retained tooth which they removed while I was under. Grandma forgot about getting me microchipped, so that'll have to get done another time. Mom went in back and visited me about an hour or so after my surgery(because mom and grandma work at their). I was sleeping but woke up and moved around. Every time mom would pat me softly I groaned and tried to get comfy again. I came home later that day with grandma and slept some more. I've been resting today too(and eating!) but I still wanted to try and play. I kept bringing mom my squeaky ball. Sometimes I roll on my back and show her my booboo!


Santa, Agility, & Spay

On Saturday we went to PetSmart. I was so excited! We walked around the store then met up with some people in the corner of the store who mom works with. They were taking pictures of pets with Santa(the money was going to a local cat rescue group). Santa was still changing so they took some test shots of me in the seat. And then, everyone started saying "Santa's here!". I looked around and finally saw him. I ran over to him and jumped on him! Then they made April and I sit with him. He was nice! I didn't even try to eat his beard.
Then we went to the place where I took my puppy classes, but we went to a different room. There were obstacles all over the room and lots of other dogs! I was so excited! I kept barking and pulling to try and get to them so I could play with them. We did some clicker training then we got to run through a tunnel and a tire! That was fun! But I still wanted to play.
Mom says on Tuesday I'm getting spayed. What does that mean?? She says I'll get lots of treats and cuddles when I come home.

Here are the rules of the game!

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their Diary the rules & their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a paw-mail that they have been tagged and to read your Diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been tagged!

1. I like chasing leaves that blow in the wind
2. I love to lay in someone's lap when I chew on treats or toys
3. I'd rather play with other dogs than get attention
4. I have a hard time chewing human food sometimes(shhh...)
5. I love to chase the cats!
6. I love my crate
7. I have 3 sisters who mommy keeps in contact with so we can meet up every once in a while

I don't really have anyone to tag! But I thought you all might like reading 7 random facts about me.


First trip to the dog park...

and it started out terribly!!

Today we took Lily to the dog park for the first time. April didn't go because she doesn't care much for other dogs.
We decided we'd try the big dog section because she likes to play rough sometimes and there weren't any dogs in the small dog section anyway. A couple of sweet collies met us at the gate(it was strange, we kept seeing all the breeds that Lily was mixed with their haha) and Lily was very excited! So we let her off her leash when we get in and she immediately runs over to a group of dogs. They all sniff her and she begins running around in circles a bit. She runs over to this giant black lab mix(mixed with pit maybe based on the shape of his head?) and he immediately pins her to the ground and starts growling at her with his hackles raised. Lily yelps and runs away, the dog follows her and knocks her down again(the ground in this dog park is mostly concrete. There's a grassy/woodsy area in the back of the big dog park, and in the small dog park area it's all concrete ground). My mom goes over because she wants to get Lily away. The whole while the owner is sitting on the bench going "Oh hahaha, Dozer! Knock it off! Play nice!" When we've finally got Lily he's grabbing his dog saying "Guess it's time to go!". So we were forced down to the small dog park where we were joined by another dog from the big dog park(Really pretty, looked like a nova scotia duck tolling retriever) who I suppose didn't want to be in their with that dog and a cairn who had just showed up. She said she saw that same lab mix going after other dogs. Why do people bring dogs like that to dog parks??
I felt so bad for Lily because when we got her to the small dog park because she was scared to play. She would run a little bit with the other dogs but was still a bit uneasy. She only played like her normal self when a 3 month old dachshund puppy came(and then I felt bad because when they were running she kept knock him over). The owner understood they were playing, though.
And another thing, one woman brought a yorkie and another brought a shih tzu, both were scared of other dogs and didn't want to play. The yorkie's owner kept saying how much her dog LOVED the dog park. It obviously wasn't a fun experience for the dogs, so why would you bring a dog like that??
My mom already dislikes dog parks, she only decided to go because Lily needed somewhere to run around and play to get some energy out(and we wanted somewhere she could be off leash), so now I think she really doesn't want to go back anytime soon..


Fun Day!!

Hello Everypup!

Today was so much fun!

We went in the car and went to my friend Abby's house. I didn't understand why I wasn't allowed to play with her. Then we drove for a while to a park...and guess who was there! My sister, Sabrina, and a lot of other dogs! The rescue group was having a reunion where all their pups come back to visit(if they can make it). My two other sisters and mother couldn't make it. Even though Sabrina is smaller than me, I had a lot of fun! I played with a lot of dogs for a couple of hours. Sabrina won best dressed because she had her party dress on and we both won worst trained with some other dogs. We also got prizes for keeping the name that the rescue gave us! So now I have lots of new fun toys! Mom says we're going to plan a little reunion where my sisters and mom could come meet up.

After that we went home for an hour and then went out to Hacklebarney State Park. My best friend Reggie was there! I got to play with him too and play in the water. April came with us but didn't want to play. :( After we walked around for a while we went out to dinner. Reggie and I played their too!

I am one tired puppy!



Results of the DNA Test!

For a little over a week my blood was in the lab. Today, the results came in!!

Ready for it? (We did the test where they look for 100 breeds or whatever rather than 50)

"Results like Lily's are found in about 70% of mixed breed dogs in the U.S. Lily's ancestry contains distant traces of Basset Hound(BH), Collie(COL), Shetland Sheepdog(SHE), and Shiba Inu(SI). There are also faint signals from other breeds which are not strong enough to identify."

Pretty cool, huh?? Mom says she does see Shiba in my face(at least it looked very similar to the one in the breed book). We don't see much of Basset(at least not yet), and we always knew there was some Collie. Didn't think of Sheltie though!

Woof Woof,


DNA Testing

Yesterday, the humans drew some blood from me and sent it off to find out what breeds I am! Exciting right?

They say mom was a collie mix(no idea who the dad-s- was/were)..And their guesses for me would have to be Collie, Beagle, Lab, Shepherd maybe, and who knows what else. I look like a dachshund in my bath pictures, mom thinks. :P So what breeds do you think will come back on the results?

I'll post another entry in a few days with the results.

Woof woof!,
