jumping for sand, swiming, raw meat, learning new things, RUNNING, chasing things
going to the vet, touching his feet, having his ears cleaned, clipping his nails, strange dogs, little animals that run
2 liter empty bottles
hiking in the woods, at the bay, to the creek, anywhere that leads to water to swim in or dirt/sand to jump for, and anywhere he can RUN
sit, stay, stand, down, wait, go, come, go home, beg, shake, give me some paw, get it, drop it... adding more and more with time, he's very smart... He also opens doors.
Animal control in Florida picked him up as an emaciated stray, and he was put on death row. The local Humane Society rescued him just in time, and began trying to put some weight on him for a month. Then a kind woman took him into her rescue organization, had him neutered and vetted, and placed him into a foster home. I had been looking for a large young dog capable of hiking and guarding, and I ran across his profile on petfinder.com. I took him home about 3 days later! The guard thing is a joke - He wouldn't protect me if my life depended on it. It said he was a GSD, but as he matures into an adult mindset, I'm seeing something else in him........
He's INSANELY energetic and needs about 10 miles of hardcore running in sand every other day AT LEAST just to be able to live with him. He can jump 6 feet in the air or more easily and happily does so over 200 times with the running (he jumps for sand). He also routinely does a lot of hill lunges with 15 pounds on his back, and on one occasion he swam full paddle for 4 hours with only three 5 minute breaks. He makes some very strange noises all the time... He paces constantly and is becoming stubborn. He marks things with his face, feet and tail. He does not bond with me the same way other dogs do. He's my buddy and I love him to death, but he's not exactly easy to live with - although since I'm used to his constant high pace way of life and intensities, regular dogs are becoming.... boring? Even my lovable pit bull is life in the slow lane compared to this guy. I know that sounds terrible, but when you live with a dog that makes agility and police dogs look lazy, that's all you're used to because that's all you do... It's all you CAN do. Oddly, I wouldn't have it any other way and love how this dog has enriched my life.

I'm finally up from 65 pounds to 76.4 pounds!! It has taken MONTHS to put the weight back on since being emaciated... I'm not talking weight in fat, but weight in muscle. Apparently I need to be at least 85 pounds with no fat, so I still have 9 pounds of muscle to go. My secret? Heavy workout one day, rest the next... and repeat. I can't rest though! I always want to have fun with tennis balls and run around! I had an awesome time at the dog park today playing with a couple of dogs... namely a Great Dane named Axel. Axel (Axol?) is about the only dog who can give me a run for my money! What a big lug :) I also impressed everyone at the park by my awesome skills at jumping for dirt! They all wanted to know why I like that so much or if I was trained to do it. No I wasn't trained to do it, but it's just amusing. I haven't been around lately because my owner's been feeling bad, but hopefully that's past... hopefully.

Well... This is my first entry and Gucci tagged me!
So here's how it works:
I am going to tag ten friends and tell them what kind of ice cream I look like. Then you tag ten friends and tell them what kind of ice cream you look like! Sprinkles count too! Add it in a new diary entry like I did here.
Lucky Pepper only had to tag five friends... hmm... anyway,
That's a hard one... I guess I look like really dark cookies and creme (lots of Oreo bits) with caramel.
