I love to play with anything or anyone!

Daddy put up squirrel feeders in our backyard and those things drive me CRAZY! The squirrels are always in our backyard eatting the corn or playing in the trees. It is my mission in life to rid the yard of those fluffy beasts!

Favorite Toy:
I love to tug!....Mommy buys me all kinds of toys and stuffed animals, but I only like to tug on stuff. Sometimes mommy gets upset because all of my animals are missing limbs, but it's not my fault they can't keep up with the tugging!

Favorite Food:
I love chews and cookies...I also like to lick the toothpaste when Mommy brushes my teeth.

Favorite Walk:
I love our neighborhood in Flower Mound. When we walk around there are lots of dogs to bark at behind the fences and just down the street is the entrance to the Trails of Flower Mound. I also LOVE to play at Fort Woof!

Best Tricks:
I can do lots of stuff: sit, down, stay, puppy push-ups, crawl, shake, high five, wave, leave it, balance a treat on my nose (I hate that one), chill, roll over, eights through mommy's legs, and we work on new things all the time!

Arrival Story:
(Mommy wrote this story since I wasn't around yet.) I have had shelties growing up, so as soon as I moved off campus, I decided I needed one too. I called the breeder that my parent's dog, Austin, came from 8 years ago. She told me that she wasn't breeding anymore, but gave me the name of a breeder near me who had Austin's niece. I called that lady she said that Austin's neice just had puppies and there was one still available. Austin is such a great dog and I knew any relative of his would be great too. Dakota is an amazing dog and he will get to meet his great uncle for Christmas this year!

Ok, so I'm almost as bad as mommy about updating things! Here's a quick run down of the last two years.

Mommy and I moved to Baton Rouge in February of 2006. I liked it there and had some doggie friends I got to play with all the time. In October of 2006 Mommy and I moved back to DFW and moved in with Daddy. I love having my whole family together! When we moved back in with Daddy, he had a foster dog, Panzer. I liked Panzer but he went to his forever home so now I don't get to see him anymore. Mommy, Daddy, and I lived in an apartment for about 6 months and I had an awesome dog sitter who would come and take me for walks everyday while Mommy and Daddy were at work.

In May we moved into our new house! I absolutely love it! We have a huge backyard and there are lots of doggies around to play with! There are also miles of trails starting just down the street from our house.

I think the next couple of months are going to be fun! I love the holidays because there are lots of fun things for dogs to do like Barktoberfest and Christmas tree hunting. We are all very excited too because we are hosting Thanksgiving this year and BOTH sets of my grandparents are going to be here and 3 of my uncles, and my cousin! My cousin is 4, so I bet he drops a lot of food for me! Yea!

Ok, well that's all for now! I'll try to be a little better at updating, but I make no promises.

Well, I have been living in Santa Cruz, California since the beginning of September. Mommy left to go back to Louisiana to help make New Orleans better again... She is working for FEMA and helping a lot of people everyday. I miss her, but I have been having a lot of fun here with my Uncle dog and Grandma and Grandpa! Mommy also sends me toys sometimes, so I like that! Hanging out with Grandma is lots of fun! She stays home with me almost all the time and she takes us up to Lighthouse field where I don't have to wear my leash! It is so much fun! Also, there is a backyard here so I can go outside whenever I want to! Uncle Austin and I also have fun together when he isn't taking my chews... I had to get brushed today and I think I heard Grandma make an appointment to get groomed... She said Mommy is coming to see me on Wednesday though, so I guess it is all worth it!

We had company a little while ago, and Grandma and Grandpa came home and put a BIG TREE! in the middle of the living room!! I think it is so neat! There are lots of fun things on it to eat...I tried two, but then Grandma yelled at me...I didn't like that very much, so I'm going to try real hard not to eat anymore...They just look like so much fun to play with !

Well, I think I heard Grandma say something about a carride! I hope we aren't going over the mountain cause that makes me feel sick to my tummy, but I think we are because she said we had to get my Uncle Brian from the airport...Boy, I can't wait to see everyone! Happy Holidays Everyone! (And try not to eat things off the tree cause you'll probably get in trouble too...)

Mommy and I evacuated from New Orleans on Saturday afternoon...I saw her packing and was VERY confused...I was so glad that I got to go with her... It was weird when we left. Mommy brought in all of our pretty plants and moved the furniture away from the windows. We got in the car and tried to get gas, but all of the gas stations were out of gas; luckily, mommy had enough to get us out of the city. We were in a little bit of traffic getting out of the city, but made it out pretty quickly. We took a very long drive up to Fort Worth, TX. It was VERY LONG; mommy said we made good time since it only took 9 hours and it usually takes 8 (even though that is longer, it was good because we stopped to eat and go potty, and had to get out of the city). We got to Daddy's house in Fort Worth around 1:00 Sunday morning.
I was so happy to see my daddy and all of his roommates! I missed them very much! While we were at Daddy's house, I had to go to the vet to get my flea medicine and heartworm medicine. I also got to go pick out new toys. Mommy didn't bring very much with her when we left. We didn't know the storm was going to be so bad; we thought we were just going to see daddy for a long weekend, and then we would go home. Now we aren't sure when we are going home.
On Wednesday morning, we flew to California to see my Grandparents and uncle dog. I didn't like the plane ride very much! Daddy went out to the gate with Mommy to make sure that I got on the plane ok. Daddy watched a very mean man pick up the back of my cage, where I couldn't see, and drop it like 5 times!! It scared me. Daddy went and talked to the person in charge, and they were very upset about it too and said that they would take care of it! When mommy got me off the plane, I was very sleepy but was very glad to be in California.
Now we are in California and are staying at my Grandma's house at the beach. Mommy and I are very glad to have some time off to figure out what we are going to do. We don't know when we are going to be able to go back to New Orleans and check our stuff. We also don't know how bad our house is. We lived on the 2nd floor of a house, so we don't think there was any flooding, but we don't know about wind damage and looting.
I will try to keep everyone updated on how mommy and I are doing. I am very busy here going for walks and playing with my Uncle Austin. Thank you very much for your concern.
