Favorite Toy:

Arrival Story:
I fell in love with eight week old Ralphie at a local petstore.. didn't exactly get permission to buy him (although my parents were aware I was going to get a dog, just not a dog that will end up being at least 50LBS.. ) but i just HAD to get him. since then, we've been inseperable. he's a wonderful dog. i just can't wait until he's housebroken ;)

it's been a while! i hope all my pals here on dogster are doing well...
I had a GREAT christmas. ran around like a mad-dog ripping open my new toys and generally allowing everyone to just spoil me rotten.

since my last entry things have gotten better. i took a trip to tennessee with the family, it was a long carride but very worth it. mom found this gourmet doggy treat shop while she was down there, called Bone-Apetit or something like that... she bought me some yummy yogurt covered treats. she said the inside of the shop smelled soooo good she could have handled sampling some of the treats.

mom started a new job, and is going to college... so while she's away i'm in my crate for a longgggggg day. i dread those days, but its only three days a week, and mom promises it won't be as bad after this semester lets out.

oh yeah. i'm up to 30 pounds (and that was a MONTH ago, so its probably more like forty-ish now) and as of now, when i stand on my feet i can almost reach mom's shoulders with my paws. almost. i'm getting SO BIG!

i have bronchitis. it hurts. i walk around gagging and choking all of the time... so i have to have these purple pills shoved down my throat. i'm not very hungry, either. i hope i feel better soon, cause this is no fun :(

so the nice vet said i weigh 8.5lbs, which isn't really a lot. so he asked mom what she was feeding me. thank goodness he asked because he scolded mom for feeding me purina (not that i actually ate it. pshhht.) and now i'm eating some other yummy natural rice/lamb doggy food.

Grandma fed me steak the other night and paid dearly for it when i projectile barfed all over her wall. Mom cried because she was so worried but I'm okay. I guess that means no table food for ralphie *big doggy sigh*

Today marks my ten week birthday. And tommorrow marks two weeks being home. I'm getting so big... and the potty thing is going pretty good too. I'm getting the hang of it already, even though the books all say i won't learn for at LEAST another two weeks. ha. i just *doggy laughed* in their faces. I almost know what "sit" means, too. grandma swears its the border collie in me. she says they're supersmart.

tommorrow mom says she's going to take me to the feed mill to look at a new leash for me. i pretty much killed my current one, and i have to look good for my big trip to tennessee on the 18th. Mom said she might buy me a santa outfit to suprise great-grandma with. the thought makes me want to barf. she makes me look so nerdy. but its kay, cause she lets me sleep right on her pillow by her head at night.

i love mommy, even if she's a dork.
