Ernie just loves to be loved. Whether that be shown by giving him treats, playing with him, or just cuddling with him... he's a happy guy!

When he wants to play, but his older cat sisfur stops him in his tracks by hissing and swatting him away.

Favorite Toy:
Any toy really! He loves them all, even cat toys. He also enjoys socks... he'll run around and chases you if you tease him with your socks. BOL!

Favorite Food:
Anything he can get... he eats Evolve wet and Blue Buffalo dry.

Favorite Walk:
Anyplace really. He loves places to sniff and places where other doggies are. He ALWAYS enjoys trips to the dog park... he will run around and play until mommy says it's enough... he doesn't know when he's tired until he gets into the car and passes out.

Best Tricks:
He's really come into his own. He knows basic commands as well as "Paw" and "Roll" which should be difficult for a dog his size. He's the absolute BEST guard dog! Anytime someone comes close to the house, we ALL know! :-)

Arrival Story:
Mommy grew up a dog person, though she never recalled having a dog. Several years ago, she explored and loved becoming a cat person when she adopted my sisfurs Alexis & Abby. But mommy is an outdoorsy kinda gal and wanted to bring a fur baby outside so that's why she eventually got daddy to say OK. They really wanted a German Shepherd and found "Shepherd mix" on Petfinder. Mommy and daddy fell in love with my floppy ears and the fact that the ad said I was OK with cats. I was pulled from a WV high-kill shelter just that day (WOOOOO!) and went to my foster who was actually right down the street! Mommy and daddy met me a few days later and in less than a week, I was finally at my furrefur home! My sisfur, Abby, is great and let me play with her from the start, but my oldest sisfur, Alexis, is still trying to figure me out. :-/

I was a stray hanging on the mean streets of rural WV when I was pulled into the high-kill shelter. Luckily the wonderfur folks at Homeward Trails Rescue pulled me out just in time because I'm just a lover who just wanted to get out of there! :-) I'm a wonderfur mix of shepherd and beagle, but my mommy says I must be more beagle than anything else because I sniff EVERYTHING!!! BOL!

Forums Motto:
I'm mommy's lover boy!

Today is a furry special day fur me and my furmaly so we're having celebrations all throughout the day!

1 year ago, my adoption paperwork tells mommy and daddy that I was born! I turn 1 years old today so mommy and daddy are SPOILING ME! Later on today, mommy is taking me on a car ride to grandma's house to hang out with the little furless guys. They're so fun to play with, but most importantly, I'll get to stick my head out the window with my tongue sticking out. That's the absolute BEST!

Later on tonight, mommy is giving me my OWN steak! Mommy and daddy KNOW how much I love to eat so while they have their celebration dinner, I have my own celebration dinner too!

1 year ago, my mommy and daddy bought their first house! Mommy says that was the reason why they finally decided to adopt a woofer. How special is it that while they were buying their house, I was also coming into this world?! It wasn't the best first coupld of months fur me because I was found as a stray before being picked up and brought to a shelter, but like my mommy and daddy, my life became SO MUCH better when we came into each ofur's lives!

Last reason to celebrate is that one of my faffurite furry furriend organizations, the Blind Cat Rescue, made it to #1 in NC yesterday in the Animal Rescue Site Shelter Challenge. Unfortunately, they are back to #2 today, but that's why I ask all of you to vote fur them efurryday until December 20, 2009. Woofers and kitties DO get along and what better way to show our support than by voting fur them. Please vote fur the Blind Cat Rescue at nge.faces?siteId=3&link=ctg_ars_shelterchallenge_from_home_s idetabs

Thankees to all my Dogster pals!

Loves, Ernie... whose a whoooping 1 year old today! BOL!


Just call me lover boy!

Hiya guys,

Sorry I haven't updated you all in a while, but with the spring here, there's so much going on that I need to be in the middle of! My mommy has called me her lover boy because efurry time I see her I just want to jump up and give her lots of sloppy kisses. I do that with my daddy and uncle too, but what can you say? My mommy says it's the beagley loverboy side of me. BOL!

Well as I was saying, I am quite the lover boy... not even a bark from me, except maybe when there are woofing doggies in the movies my mommy and daddy are watching. I even show my love to my kitty sisfurs, Abby and Alexis. Abby loves to cuddle with me when we go to sleep and loves to play... sometimes you can even catch her cleaning my face. BOL! My oldest sisfur though, prefers to keep her distance or better yet keep me in my place so I keep my distance. I don't think she likes me very much, but I do love trying to play with her nonetheless, although I usually get a few smacks to my muzzle and a loud wet HISSS. it's OK though because she's till my oldest sisfur and I love her!

Speaking of loving kitties, there's a great kitty furriend of my sisfurs that sure could use our love and support! Many of you may be aware of his LOOOOOOONG story as his sisfur Noelle is also on Dogster, but basically, Aldo was a happy kitty living in Florida a little ofur a year ago until his mommy Laurel unexpectantly passed over the bridge. His sisfur Noelle had a long trip which brought her to her new furefur family in the SouthWest and he found a new furefur family near me in Baltimore, MD. Unfortunately, the economy has his his furmaily hard as his mommy has lost her job. The costs of raising her furbabies is one thing, but Aldo has been sick for a few weeks now and the over and beyond vet bills have become a little overwhelming.

All the Catsters and Dogsters are coming to help by having an auction to raise money to help Aldo's mommy and furmaly. There's A LOT of cool stuff there, not just fur kitties so I wanted all my furriends to take a look and bid high and frequently. My furmaily wished we were in England, because there is a great trip in a cabin that's being auctioned off as well. Take a look!

Sloppy kisses & a waggin' tail, Ernie, "the lover boy" BOL!
