   Leave a bone for Tad (Thaddeus Minimus)

Tadipus, Tads, the boy, TadMo, BAD TAD

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

September 15th 2004

He loves belly rubs, chewing everything, and his full name said really fast.

He's pretty laid back actually, but he does whine like a bear when he's tickled.

Favorite Toy:
Gidget, and if she isn't cooperative than any of HER toys will do.

Favorite Walk:
Tad loves to go anywhere! In the car, on the leash or under the arm.

Best Tricks:
He loves the challenge of tunneling under the bed, around the doggie gate and into the laundry hamper upstairs! Also if I say "BANG", he'll roll over real slow and play dead.

Arrival Story:
I met Tad's dog mom and dad and fell in love!! They were both wonderful animals and then along came this little bundle of fur. At 9 weeks, he was already very friendly and playful... not to mention BRAVE! He plays with all of the "big" dogs.

I came up with Tad's name by looking up synonyms for "little". The name Thaddeus means gentlenss or sweetness of character, and as a bonus, St. Jude Thaddeus was the Patron Saint of seemingly impossible or difficult cases- which fits little Tad like a glove!!

Forums Motto:
Ohh, loverboy!

Favorite hangout:
The bench in the front window so he can watch all of the neighbors.

Best Friend:
A cute chi named Angelo.

I've Been On Dogster Since:

So I just don't get the whole "present" thing. I can smell doggie toys under the tree mom put in the living room. She tried to hide it in some paper and ribbons, but I know they are there. YET- when I went under the tree digging around for one (and brought it over to the couch to really have a go at it) mom jumped up and snatched it away! She said it was a "present" and I had to wait. Wait for what??? I want it now! So, I went back under and got it while she was in the shower... heh heh... I'm not that sneaky though and she spotted it as soon as she came back downstairs. NOW she's put the "presents" in a colorful box with a lid. When Oh When will I get my chew toy back?!? Gidget, of course, is too enamored with the plug in blanket to care about the new toys under the tree. One of these days though, when no one is looking, I may just get into that colorful box....

Hello everyone! I recently celebrated my 2nd birthday!!! I am officially a "big boy" now. Although mommy says I'll always be her little guy. Last year we had a big party with a bunch of my chi friends over and we ate cake and ran around the back yard and then we all scrambled onto the bed and watched a movie. It was a lot of fun but this year it was more low-key. I got extra snuggles and treats and my own pet Beta Fish!

The folks have been pretty busy doggie sitting ANOTHER chihuahua named Sam. He is my best friend, Angelo's brother. Sam is very very shy though. He runs away from us (esp. Gidget because she rushes him whenever he pokes his head out of his bed- she's a witch!) but I try to sit with him in the front window. Mom says we have to be friendly and patient with Sam, he has epilepsy and had a seizure today. Me and Gidget didn't know what was going on but then he was fine and just walked around kinda dizzy for awhile. It's taken a whole week for him to settle in but now he's not so afraid anymore. Daddy has been really trying to be extra attentive to Sam but Gidget hates that. She's such a brat!

Anyway, I smell bratwursts. My mommy sneaks me stuff sometimes when Gidget isn't watching (hee hee) so I better put on my best puppy face!!

Hi everyone out there! Well, we have been super busy around here since mom and dad got hitched... and now they are on their "honeymoon", whatever that is. I was really upset that we can't go along on this moon thing but then I found out my friend Scout (another chi) and his mom are going to stay here with us! I love company!!! I can show him all of my things and we can play play play. Since we're two boys, we can pick on Gidget for two whole weeks! I admit I am sad that my mom will be away for that long, it's the longest she's ever been away from me, sniff... but she said her friend promises to be good to us. I'm just glad I'll have a friend here to play with. Poor Gidget will be miserable without daddy. She's just a wreck when he's not around. Anyway, I think Scout wants to play- see ya!!
