   Leave a bone for Nitro (RIP)

Boo, Boo-Berry. Responds well to Whip! and Whippet!

Quick Bio:

August 19th 1998

Flyball, she finally got her ONYX award, and snuggling under the covers.

Being stepped on or sat on when hiding under covers on the bed or couch.

Favorite Toy:
Tennis ball, and her snakey tug toy.

Favorite Food:
Any kitchen scraps that fall on the floor.

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere there are squirrels.

Best Tricks:
"Clean Up!" when a kitchen scrap falls on the floor. She'll come running from anywhere when she hears it.

Nitro just earned her flyball ONYX award! She also enjoys agility but has never competed. She loves oval track, but due to a pneumothorax and advancing age, she will probably not get to do it anymore. She can be quite fierce during tug-o-war. She has even gotten a few unprompted marriage proposals over the years- from people! But she's mine.

I completed my lifetime goal: I earned my flyball ONYX award!!! Mom can't believe it, she didn't think I could do it before I retired. I am so excited, I'll be getting a plaque with my name on it... OMG this is super! I'll still do some limited racing. I love being at the start line barking with my teammates. And it's amazing how many people have cookies in their pockets at these tournaments. My big brown eyes get them all the time.

Hooligan and I are going hiking today. I hope I find some little critters to chase. Mom's hoping the poison oak hasn't gotten too crazy yet.


Mom is so Proud of Me!

I raced in a flyball tournament last weekend. My team got first place Saturday, second place on Sunday. Mom is so proud. I've been getting lots of extra kisses and cuddles. My brother Hooligan did good too. Usually he's such a wuss. He was so happy to be at the tournament, he forgot to be scared of the people trying to pet him! Even 2 kids cuddled all around his face and he let them! I could tell mom was happy but puzzled about it. But she pretended not to notice so she wouldn't "ruin" it. He was wearing his cow print jammies, everyone decided they must be his Power Jammies. I think he was just pretending to be brave to be cool like me.


Never mind about the retirement thing...

I've changed flyball clubs. My last couple tournaments have been fantastic! Whatever was wrong with my hip earlier this year is long gone. Last weekend we raced in Madera California. My team got 1st place in our division! It wasn't the fastest division or anything, but we won. I still had some spunk the next day, but mom was tired and we napped when she got home from work. I love napping too.
