Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
The back yard b/c she loves to chase the squirrels and chipmunks.

Best Tricks:
She understands not to bark at certain hours of the morning and actually does a "silent bark" to get someone's attention. She simply flaps her jaws as if she was barking but with no sound.

Arrival Story:
Tina picked us out when we were browsing a local shopping center trying to kill some time prior to seeing a movie in the theater. It was a hot day and as we were walking from store to store we noticed a Pet Rescue Service with all of the animals tucked in their seperate kennels. Each and every animal looked at us (if they were not sleeping) and then looked away as if to say "Oh well, another one passes us by". One dog in particular flashed her big brown eyes at us and followed us with those eyes as we TRIED to walk past her. We did not make it. When we asked the foster parent to let us visit with her it became obvious that she had suffered trauma to her leg. The foster parent explained that she had been left tied outside with a leash which grew into her arm and had to be surgically removed. You would not know she had been through such abuse/neglect as she was sooo happy and bubbly while visiting us. We put her back in her cage and went to the movies. I was miserable during the entire movie and as soon as it let out my husband gave me the money and the car keys to head straight back to Tina. She looked as if she knew we were coming back.

Bio:
Tina had horrible seperation anxiety when we first got her. Every time we would leave she would eat the couch, the love seat, the coffee table, the rugs, etc. Our vet offered drugs which we refused. After patience and training (and some new furniture) Tina is now a fantastic member of our family.

Dogster Closing Down our Pup Pages

January 17th 2014 10:04 am
[ Leave A Comment | 2 people already have ]

Our crew is saddened to learn that Dogster will be closing all of our pet pages by March, 2014. We have made so many wonderful furriends on here and, without Dogster we would not have made it through many dark days. Our Pup Pals have laughed, cried, worried and celebrated with us for many years. This has been a place fur us to let our voices be heard, seek advice on medical issues from pup pals who may have been through the same experience, share our special days and photos to accompany same.

We love all of you so very much and have anxiety over losing touch with many of you!! As such, mommy has asked us to let everyone know how to find us once we are gone from Dogster.

Mommy has a Facebook page and her name on there is “ Deanna End Bsl Coleman Smith”. She set up a new email address to keep up with all of you and it is puppalsfromdogster@yahoo.com.
Please keep in touch with us…we love all of you!!!

 

Grandpaw

Mommy is sad as she prepares for our first Christmas without Grandpaw. As most of you know, Grandpaw celebrated Pupmas with us every year. The humans had their Christmas and then Grandpaw would head to our home for Pupmas. He always had so much good stuff fur all of us but nothing made us happier than him just being there. This year will be different. He will not warming up that spot on the couch whilst drinking a hot cup of coffee and petting my bootay. I think we will all be sad for a while. But, I just know Grandpaw would want us to continue on with love in our hearts and celebrate the reason for the season…TREATS! BOL!

In all seriousness, I love you Grandpaw & wish I could get one more pet behind the ear from you.

 

I almost lost my life Saturday

Mommy gets teary eyed while typing this for me but wanted to let everyone know what happened to me this past Saturday.

As most of my pup pals know, I have been known to climb our back fence when I see another dog in the area (running free) so I can play with it. Mommy and Daddy have done all they can do to proof the fence short of replacing it with a wood fence but I am a climber; I can climb the fence like it is a ladder.

Saturday we had such beautiful weather. Daddy was working and mommy was getting her stuff together to run household errands that day. Given the fact I haven’t jumped in a long, long time mom let her guard down and opened the back door to let us run and play for while before she had to leave. When it came time to leave, I was gone.

Mom started to panic but thought I might just be distracted by something way back in the yard…we have a HUGE back yard. So, mommy walked the yard looking for me only to realize I was not there. She told me her heart sank at that moment.

Mom immediately tries to grab a bag of treats and jump in the car to get me. She accidentally grabbed croutons but that would work. Her first thought was to hit the main road versus our residential street since that would be the place I could lose my life to a car. She had her windows down calling to me and shaking the {crouton} bag, her heart sinking and a lump building in her throat. She pulled into a residential drive located behind our fence line where other yards meet up with ours and saw a lady on her porch. She started to tell the lady about me missing and before she could finish the lady said “I saw that dog and a little black Chihuahua running together a little while ago, they almost got hit by a car in front of my house.”

At this moment mom lost all control and started crying. She called Daddy and could barely get the information out before Daddy said “I am coming home now!”. They love me so very much.

Mom continued to drive while trying to fight the tears and her intense fear of never seeing me again or finding me dead. She tells me it was one of the worst moments of her life. Suddenly she saw me running through someone’s back yard just a few houses up from the lady who said she saw me. She pulled into their drive and jumped out to go in the back yard but hesitated because she didn’t want to be considered an intruder and get shot. She went to the door and banged as loud as she could then ran back to the yard to call me but I was gone again. The person answered the door and mommy ran to the man and said “my dog is somewhere in your back yard I think. Can I please go back there and look?” When the man said yes she ran back to go back into the yard and I was standing beside the house.

WOW! Mom was suddenly in a pile of tears and grabbed me falling on the ground during the process. The man ran over to us and was trying to calm mommy down; it was not an easy task. The man started introducing himself to me and mommy and made her feel better enough so she could get me to the car and get me home.

Mom called Daddy and told her I was ok and Daddy scolded me over the speaker in the car…that was slightly confusing for me since I could not see him.

Once I was home Mommy pulled my collar off and headed to PetSmart to update it, making it much bigger and updating Daddy’s phone number, even though all others were updated. She even added our address on the backside so they can get me home if possible. (I WILL POST PIC OF ME WEARING IT, I DO NOT LIKE IT AT ALL!)

Needless to say, all is well now but I am on a very strict yard schedule now. Mom and dad are trying to figure out their options when it comes to our fence since they cannot afford to put a wood fence around the back yard.

Sorry to worry my Mommy and Daddy so much. It was terrible of me to break their hearts like that. I will try to be better…
