Playing, eating, treats
Any toy that she can steal from Sunny or Ravan.
Little Ceasars, malto meal, treats, just about everything
The puppy pin - she's a runner.
Jumps straight up, dances for treats
Bambi was rescued by some folks in Goodland, Kansas and we heard about her when my Mom lost her pet to a kidney problem in March of 2004. We were looking for another pet for Mom and I found her on the Internet. We drove from Denver to pick her up and bring her to her forever home.
We don't know much about Bambi, but the vet assured us that she is a purebred Chihuahua (which really doesn't matter to us). Her age is a best guess based upon what the vet told us. She was lost in the country in the dead of winter and we are amazed that she was able to survive the couple of months she did on her own. It was very cold, she was pretty small, and very vulnerable, but somehow she did survive her ordeal and now she is with humans that love her very much.
Never give up!

GREAT DOG STORY
Mary and her husband Jim had a dog named 'Lucky.' Lucky was a real character. Whenever Mary and Jim had company come for a weekend visit they would warn their friends to not leave their luggage open because Lucky would help himself to whatever struck his fancy. Inevitably, someone would forget and something would come up missing.
Mary or Jim would go to Lucky's toy box in the basement and there the treasure would be, amid all of Lucky's other favorite toys. Lucky always stashed his finds in his toy box and he was very particular that his toys stay in the box.
It happened that Mary found out she had breast cancer. Something told her she was going to die of this disease....in fact , she was just sure it was fatal.
She scheduled the double mastectomy, fear riding her shoulders. The night before she was to go to the hospital she cuddled with Lucky. A thought struck her...what would happen to Lucky? Although the three-year-old dog liked Jim, he was Mary's dog through and through. If I die, Lucky will be abandoned, Mary thought. He won't understand that I didn't want to leave him. The thought made her sadder than thinking of her own death.
The double mastectomy was harder on Mary than her doctors had anticipated and Mary was hospitalized for over two weeks. Jim took Lucky for his evening walk faithfully, but the little dog just drooped, whining and miserable.
Finally the day came for Mary to leave the hospital. When she arrived home, Mary was so exhausted she couldn't even make it up the steps to her bedroom. Jim made his wife comfortable on the couch and left her to nap. Lucky stood watching Mary but he didn't come to her when she called. It made Mary sad but sleep soon overcame her and she dozed.
When Mary woke for a second she couldn't understand what was wrong. She couldn't move her head and her body felt heavy and hot. But panic soon gave way to laughter when Mary realized the problem. She was covered, literally blanketed, with every treasure Lucky owned! While she had slept, the sorrowing dog had made trip after trip to the basement bringing his beloved mistress all his favorite things in life. He had covered her with his love.
Mary forgot about dying. Instead she and Lucky began living again, walking further and further together every day. It's been 12 years now and Mary is still cancer-free. Lucky? He still steals treasures and stashes them in his toy box but Mary remains his greatest treasure.
Remember....live every day to the fullest. Each minute is a blessing from God. And never forget....the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care for us.
If you see someone without a smile today give them one of yours! Live simply. Love seriously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.

Name four jobs you have:
1) Friend and Companion...Someone has to look after grandma.
2) Sweetie Pie...I spend a lot of time being cute.
3) Security Guard...I'm pretty sure this is the main reason for my existance. Anything that might hurt my hoomans, I bark until it goes away!
4)Nurse to Grandma...I always check her for little ouchies because she has very fragile skin.... then I "doctor" her ouchies by making sure they are kept clean!
Name four places where you have lived(or stayed at)
1) I don't remember the first place because I got lost or ran away...no one really knows... but if you are interested you can read my arrival story.
2) Kansas.... I spent a few months at a rescue in Kansas... a real nice lady captured me from the farm I was hiding at and took me to safety.
3) Arvada, Colorado.... where my hooman sissy lives and where grandma lived when she adopted me... I liked it there a lot.
4) Ponca City, OK.... which is where the hoomans lived originally.... grandma decided to move back there and I of course had to go with!
Name 4 places that you have been:
4) Where ever it was I got lost from.
Name 4 places you would rather be:
1) In the living room next to Grandma.
2) Curled up in bed with Grandma.
3) In the car when Grandma goes to Colorado.
4) Right where I am instead lost on a farm in Kansas!

Everyone (the hoomans that is) has been talking about the Easter Bunny and colored eggs and all kinds of strange stuff. When I was in Colorado (I'm in Okahoma now), we didn't do much of the Easter Bunny stuff, but it sounds like it might be fun. I can't wait to see what happens. Maybe I can steal some of those colored eggs. That seems like it might cause a little excitement. hehehehe
