Arrival Story:
I was born into my guardian mother's hands... She had been told that I was coming to be with her & that I would be the ONLY little girl in the litter... When my mother rosie was giving birth to us, she had THREE boys, my brothers & ONE girl, my sister... but I was NOT there... yet... I HAD a sister, but she didn't live... Everyone thought that she was the ONLY girl... I never had a chance to meet her... but I'm sure I would have liked her... 4 pups born that afternoon... my sister not strong enough... the guardians trying to help keep her alive... MY guardian mother broken hearted because she had she been told that the little girl was her's... but it wasn't me... After my sister was gone & all the guardians were sad & quiet... my mother rosie stood up... she had something else for them... ME!!! I am OFFICIALLY the runt... that means that I truly am the little baby girl... they STILL even call me that!!! My guardian mother held her hands out & I came into the world looking at her... looking at me... we still talk about it... Everyone thought that I was a surprise, but I knew better...

Forums Motto:
lick the bowl 'till it's CLEAN...

well i just wanted to say sorry i haven't posted much the last couple of years... one of my guardians had to go to iraq for a long while and i was a little sad... however now he is back and he is finally retiring from the service (U.S. Army Special Forces) in 27 days... but who is counting :) at least while he was in baghdad he made some other friends! 3 to be exact, a bunch of the boys adopted some of the strays they found there and helped them get a better home and life! i will try to post pics later of my distant cousins...

All Dogs are created equal...but SOME dogs are more equal- than others...

So apparently my guardians are trying to adopt! Does this mean I have to share my food? It isn't like I get enough now so I'm wondering just how they are going to afford to keep me AND another dog. And they certainly can't expect me to share the bed with someone else. I look small but I sleep BIG! Well I guess I'm just going to have to wait and see how this turns out. Why would they want a brand new shiny chewy slobbery knocking the plant over dog? If I just had thumbs I could call these BADRAP people and set this straight...my guardians only feed me twice a day, sure its expensive food lovingly prepared by my mommy... but she is pretty skimpy on the portions. Oh the picture of torture and neglect I could paint. I mean REALLY... bringing an ex-con into MY house. This new pup probably has a rap sheet a mile long. Probably some back yard breeder output without papers... the horror!
But come to think of it...when the cat gets tired I would have someone else to play with. And this new dog should know all about hierarchy... I've been here longer so I get some of/all of your food every other day. (I'm sure in prison it worked that way). Prison must be awful. I suppose this new dog would be all excited to have a new family, somewhere to relax, a couch to... well a floor to lay on (the couch is mine! get it, just follow the rules and no-one gets hurt capish?) And this convict pup does need love just like I do. Listen to me! I'm getting all soft... well I guess all dogs ARE created equal...but some dogs are more equal than others (wink!)

Next time the promised hollywood updates!

I am a Diva...

Make no mistake about it, I am a Diva... opera for guardians is difficult. You should try having no thumbs and singing opera. You see if I had thumbs I wouldn't need to sing. I would just open the fridge and get my own snacks. Then I would have complete control of the situation, and feed the Cat at my whim... then we would see who would be singing.
Welcome to the life of a poor under-appreciated Diva Dog. When you're my size here in Hollywood recognition doesn't come easy. To get recognized you need a gimmick. My guardian seems to get recognized so why can't I? Keep checking back here for more of my daily story...

Next time: Walks in the park (yes the BIG loop) and stars without make-up... Yes they walk with their dogs just like your guardian. Well most of them do, some are to busy or bad guardians and they have an assistant do it...
Speaking of that! Special thanks to my personal (Dad because he has thumbs) assistant (...fame has its perks) for typing this for me...kinda hard without those thumbs I mentioned earlier...

Ciao!

Tonka
