Running & playing with the "pack"

Loud noises, too many humans!

Eats what other furkids eat, Nutro Ultra Getting much better about taking a treat from my hand!

Favorite Walk:
Gone on only a few walks, been bitter cold and lots of snow! But has done well on the couple walks we've had

Best Tricks:
Does stand on back legs and dances a bit! Trying to learn to shake!

Arrival Story:
I found Cody, formally known as Floppy from APB Rescue in Lansing. It was planned when I went to get him for him to go live with our daughter Jackie in TN with her hubby and their furdaughter Lily, since I had just adopted Cassie from an OH rescue. Well Cody came with severe issues, scared to death of people, noises etc! Timid as could be but never snipped nor snapped at me nor my husband. Cody would have to be carried in & out to potty. Once outside with our furkids he ran and played like a normal happy go lucky furkid! He had made pretty good progress, but at times one step forward two steps back! So we decided best not to re-home him to TN, and not lose progress I had made! He now runs in and out with the pack, enjoys the living room with the other furkids and no longer hides under the kitchen table! Atleast not until any number of other humans arrive! Making a bit of progress there too, while daughter Jackie and fam were here for a few days he made his presence known by going in with the family on his favorite spot on the back of one of the couches. Cody sleeps with me now, usually right on my other pillow and gives me kisses quite often! Cody has gone from a tail tucked between his legs to a pupster quite often holding that tail up and wagging proud! First time he licked my hand I cried like a baby, I was so proud I was gaining his trust! My husband has commented several times he wishes he could find out where the people lived that had Cody along with many other furkids, members of a backyard breeding situation in a garage, he would give them the same treatment or worse! Cody's timid & scared ways brought tears to my husband's eyes several times, how terrible he says for people to mistreat & neglect furkids all because of money & greed! If your home & heart has room for another furkid please adopt or buy from a reputable breeder that you can visit and not buy from a pet shop, 99.9% of them come from some sort of puppy mill!

Well I will do my best to try and do this since I am new and not much to tell everyone YET!

Here are the rules of the game:

I'm supposed to think of 7 things about myself, and then I am to write them down in a list.

Next I'm supposed to Tag 7 of my furiends, letting them know, either by pawmail or rosette, that they have been Tagged and to read the rules in my Diary if they choose to play.

Sounds like fun to me! I'm honored to be included in a game of Tag! Here are seven things about me.....

1. I was rescued in Aug of 2008 by Animal Placement Bureau in Lansing MI

2. Rescued from a backyard breeder with many other pupsters locked in cages!

3. I am thought to be around 3 yrs old (vet's best guess) So they made my birfday Aug 20th

4. I was adopted by my wonderful Mom on Nov 23rd, 2008

5. I was so scared & timid when I first came here to live, hid under the kitchen table all the time.

6. Being here a month now, I am getting much better! I ruv to play & run with my fursibs and carry my tail high instead of tucked between my legs!

7. I ruv my furever new home, I even sleep with Mom & Dad with my fursibs, except Cassie, she is still in crate at night! I even took a treat from Mom's hand for the first time last night!! woo-hoo! How sweet it is! I give Mom kisses & kisses every night when we go to bed, I thank her for my most wunderful home!

Hmmm... okay! Now the hard pawt! Choosing just 7 furiends to join me in this game of Tag!

Here is the list of the 7 furiends I am choosing. There is no pawticular reason I have chosen these furs and they are listed in no pawticular order...

2. Lily 352920
3. Peanut 495189
4. Sugar 238897
5. Casey 216562
6. Wee Rose 623276
