Running, his new gingerbread man toy, ripping the felt off tennis balls, trying to get other dogs WHOLE heads in his mouth

The word NO...being woken up from a nap

Favorite Toy:
Right now, a seahorse that squeaks and THE KONG, My arms, feet and hands...Update the Seahorse has been defluffed and the new favorite is a .99 squeaky ball

Favorite Food:
Peanut butter, by far

Favorite Walk:
Capone LOVES walking in general and is starting to know his way home, happy to report he now makes the turn up our street (no matter what direction we are heading in) and goes to the right set of stairs! (Before he went up EVERYONE's stairs!)

Best Tricks:
He stops at the corners and looks both ways before crossing and pretending to have learned a new trick when he really hasn't!!

Arrival Story:
Many of you know me as Beezer's Mom.... Beezer was my love for 11.5 years and he passed away in July. My life was so empty and so ridiculous without the pitter patter of four feet, I couldn't take it anymore. With the love and support of many people, (and many of the Angel mommies on Dogster), I set out to rescue this little man... AS it turns out he is rescuing me everyday!

I got Capone from the North Shore Animal League in Long Island. They were wonderful and because they are a NO kill shelter, there were so many animals and believe me I would have taken them ALL if I could. Capone was sitting quietly in his cage and when I entered the room, he opened one eye and looked at me, like "PSST, LADY OVER HERE!! Some big dog named Beezer sent me. " And that was it. Capone was originally at a Kill Shelter in Tennesse awaiting a certain fate and North Shore went down and rescued him and about 10 other puppies. Thank you North Shore, GREAT JOB!

My Diary

I got JUMPED and now Mommy wants me in Self Defense Class!

Well, what can I say, I am a lover not a fighter and I got a chance to prove that on Monday morning. It was really early when mommy and I went to the park. We got out of the car and the house nearby had TWO really really BIG Dobermans.... They were barking and running around the yard and mommy thought that they were gated in there, but as soon as we got across the street they came a running... Its a long emotional and dramatic story, but to make it short, I ended up with a couple cuts on my butt and really painful sidewalk burn on my shoulder and OF COURSE a cut on my front paw pad. Which means more soaking and more of that icky stuff.... I am okay! A little down in the dumps because when I saw the one coming I got right down on my back so he could sniff me, but he wanted to try and bite me instead... Mommy was sooooo mad at his owner because he didn't do ANYTHING,... he just stood there calling their names... But they didn't wanna listen cause they were too busy trying to bite me.... I couldn't get up so good once i was down on my back trying to show them I was not going to hurt them, but they didn't wanna listen.... *sigh*.... Oh the life of a puppy... Mommy says I get into more trouble than any other puppy she has ever met.....

Alas, many people wanted mommy to report it to the police, but she is afraid they will blame the beautiful animals and not their idiot owner. They are assigned to protect this property, but they are not supposed to leave it and the guy just had no control..... Ah, I digress and I certainly don't want to be known as a whiner! :O) Mommy said the reason it happened is cause I am not tough enough and that maybe she should find me a puppy self-defense class... But that is when I reminded her that I am a lover not a fighter and I have to just build up into really showing the love so they won't wanna fight next time.

I am off to go play mommy for more sympathy and treats and hugs.... OH BOY did I let her spoil me on Monday!


One Year Old Today!

Hi all, I know I know again I haven't been able to get on the computer to let you know how its going, but here it is ..... I am one year old today! Actually, mommy and I don't know when my OFFICIAL bday is, but we made it today because Mommy likes the day and it was the day she actually got my Angel brofur Beezer so it was like a dual celebration day! So as is always the case with a puppy sometimes we get into a little trouble and I tell you I have been in it! Well we ALL know that I love to walk and play, WELL, recently I got a little cut on my PAW.... OMD did that hurt, but I am a trooper so mommy and I went walking almost everyday, then last week ALL OF THE SUDDEN the darn thing REALLY started to hurt and I was walking on three legs... That is hard stuff, I tell you.... SO, mommy who had been cleaning the cut and trying to make it heal faster was stunned when it BLEW UP like a little golfball she said.... We went right to the vet (it wasn't my Uncle Alex cause he is too far away), anyway this TOOL sends in a goon to PICK ME UP to try and get me on this table, WELL I FREAKED OUT!! He dropped me on the floor and I growled at him and showed him my teeth to let him know I wasn't happy and you know what they did, THEY PUT THIS BIG LEATHER THING OVER MY MOUTH!!! OH I have never seen mommy so mad before..... I thought she was gonna get herself in trouble.... But I digress, anyway after all that stress I heard the guy say he wanted to put me out and cut my paw open... Thank Dog, my mommy is smart cause she was like OH NO WAY!!! Get him an antibiotic and we will go see Uncle Alex.... But before we could get to him, I shot in the but with that big long pinchy thing and I had to take these pills, (which wasn't too bad because I got lotsa peanut butter), aand I had to put my foot in water two times a day, that was weird, but who am I to judge.... Anyway, yesterday we went to see Uncle Alex and he said I was doing GREAT! The swelling is about 80% gone (I don't know math, but I assume this is good), and that even though I still have to wear a sock on my foot when I go out and I am on some limited play I am going to be just fine and I can celebrate my birthday in grand puppy style.... So WHOO HOO!!!!

SO today I am very grateful for my mommy and all her smartness and I am grateful that my paw is better!!! YAY!

Well well well, I finally get to use the computer. Mommy is such a hog. She has been so busy lately, that I haven't had a second to catch you up on things! How can I put this??? I think I am starting to listen to mommy. I don't know when it happened and its like I have no control over it! Maybe its because Mommy got rid of Righty and Lefty??? Who knows? I heard Mommy telling someone the other day that I am up to like an 85% listen rate. I don't really know what that means, but its kinda hard not to listen to her, cause EVERYTIME she calls my name I KNOW there is something DELICIOUS waiting for me. So I try to be good. BUT DON'T WORRY, its not ALL like that. At the dog park the other day, I was getting bullied by some really big dogs, I mean they just wouldn't let up. I tried the whole get on my back, expose my belly and SMILE thing, but it didn't work, so after about 2 minutes, I saw Mommy walking over to save me and I was like OH HECK NO, she is NOT going to embarass me and step in, I can do this myself. So I got up and I showed my big bright teeth (just like I have seen the other dogs do) and I barked right at them and BOY OH BOY did they looked STUNNED! I don't think they thought I had it in me. BUT THEY DIDN'T know that I got my name for a reason and I am the biggest baddest gangsta puppy in town. Now they know not to mess with CAPONE. BOL BOL..... Also, now I go to puppy day care like once or twice a week and I LOVE IT THERE.. I even got a YouTube video now. I don't know what that means, but mommy says its all good stuff and that means that I am famous.....or infamous, I can't remember which word she used.... BOL... Okay, I have to go she is lookin at me funny now, so its time for me to get off the computer and let her get to work. More later, and I promise not to let so many days in a row go by without writing again. I will bite mommy to let me on if I have to.

Woofs and wags, Capone...
