Quick Bio:

Birthday:
October 3rd 2008

Likes:
Mommy and Daddys' bed, his cats, sneaking under the covers to sleep, tearin' up sock toys, squeaky squirrel toys!

Pet-Peeves:
That awful dog in the mirror, he just doesn't listen! The cold, blowing on his face, car rides when I can't sit in Mommys' lap. Also when Mommy and Daddy make me sit and stay before they feed me, how cruel!

Favorite Toy:
Stuffed monkey, squeaky cat toy, nyla bones, sock toys, hide-a-squirrel

Favorite Food:
Apple slices, chicken heart, frozen smelt and yogurt. Oh and liver, the smellier the better, YUM!

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere warm! I seem to ignore people until they notice me, so walks in the big city are a breeze!

Best Tricks:
Still a puppy and learning, but very good at lie down and sit! I can also jump about four feet in the air from standing, especially when Mommy is walking up the stairs towards the gate, or when I think my food on the counter should be in my mouth NOW.

Arrival Story:
Found this amazing breed by searching online - both my boyfriend and I are allergic to dogs and it was breaking my heart that we couldn't have one. Got in touch with Brenda at Trout Creek Kennels in LA (founding kennel of the breed!) and she happened to have a pink and red puppy that stole my heart. Ever since he's been the love of our lives and keeps everyday fun and exciting at home!

I have been tagged by Bean to answer some questions, which is ok by me because it means my slacker Mom finally breaks her lack of updates for me.

What color is your collar?
Dark brown, I just got it and it's so much comfier than my old blue plaid collar. It's leather, and round so no hard edges!

What kind of food do you eat?
Raw meats and cubes of frozen 'gloop' my Mom and Dad make, with lots of veggies and oils and good stuff for me. That's for dinner. Breakfast I get Evo right now, used to get Orijen but it made me gassy. Hee.

What is your favorite treat?
Watermelon, currently. I can jump high enough to grab it from my Moms hand when she's standing up!

Do you have a Valentine or significant other?
Can't tame this man. (Although Nicki if you're reading I might be tamed for you, maybe.)

Do you get table scraps?
Nope. If I sit like a good boy I might get some watermelon when they've finished eating, but dang, sitting like a good boy for so long is hard work!

What is your favorite toy?
His name is Sherman the Sheep, but he's currently at the sewing hospital because we played rough again. He's the same size as me, and I love rolling around with him. Also nyla bones. And socks. And kongs, ooooh, and bouncy balls. Always those.

When is your birthday?
October 3, 2008 (Tomorrow! Horray for smelly food!)

How many times do you get to eat?
Breakfast, dinner and snacks sometimes. If we go for long walks/adventures I get snacks when we get back because I'm a movin' shakin' runnin' machine according to my Mom.

What is your favorite color?
Meat colour.

How much do you weigh?
My Mom huffs and puffs when she picks me up, because I'm such a big man, at 17 lbs.

Do you like to be brushed and groomed?
What's a brush? I don't care for baths, but it's ok when I jump in the shower with Mom and she soaps me up. Warm towels afterwars are AWESOME. If she's real quick about cleaning my ears it's ok, but I get restless if it's more than 2 qtips per ear. Nail clipping is a bit nerve wracking, but Mom is pretty good at chillaxin' me.

What is your most favorite thing to do?
Roll around in bed with Mom and Dad in the morning when we first get up. I have a strict stretch routine that takes approximately 3.5 minutes, and then it's go time. They're not allowed out of bed without at least 2 minutes of play. Also making dogs at the park chase me.

Do you hope all your pals put this in your diary?
Yes! It's fun to learn about everyone elses lives!

I won't full out tag anyone, but if you read this, it would be awesome to see your answers too!

 

Busy, huh.

Wow my Mom is a total slacker.
She tells me she's been real busy lately, which is why she's been neglecting to update my diary for me.

She was gone for a few days, and then when she came back had this weird drawing on her side, that she wouldn't let me lick. Not fair! She brought me some new clothes though, so it wasn't all bad.

Then we had a ton of people over for her birthday, and a nice dinner too. Of course I was included, I got more liver than usual - YUM!
With Dads help I got Mom an awesome gift, and even signed her card. I may not be an agility dog yet, but I'm agile alright!

Now Mom is getting all excited about going to something called Premier. All I know is she keeps telling me I'm going to meet lots of other dogs, which sounds alright. I'm a little bummed I won't get to meet my girl Nicki, or her brother Bean. Also my almost identical twin Beanie can't make it, because they live real far away.
But I promise to sniff as much butt, and play with as many pups as possible, just for you guys.

Mom says we won't be gone long, and that she'll have plenty of wonderful pictures once she's back.

Don't miss me too much, k?

 

Friend!

I have a new friend. His name is Friday, and he's so much fun to be around I whine a little bit when his Mom takes him home. That's him in the new picture of me!

I got to meet him at his house, a couple weekends ago. I was a bit scared at first, mostly because he came barreling down the stairs and I didn't know how to take it.
But then we started playing, and boy it was fun.

I was even allowed to use my teeth! The Mommie never lets me use my teeth when I play with her, meanie.

He came over to my house on Saturday, and I showed him around my backyard. He wasn't as interested as me in sniffin it all, to make sure it was the same. I tried telling him how important he was, but he just wanted to play.
Ok I figured, we can play for now, I'll sniff later.
We played for hours! It was awesome. Then I got really tired, and fell asleep in Moms lap. She snuck me up to bed, and I didn't get to sniff the yard!!!
I'm pretty sure some shennanigans went on that I'll never know about, thanks to my missing the opportunity to sniff that night.

But I sure do like playing with Friday.
