belly rubs and tons of attention

do not like being brushed or being moved off the comfy furniture

Favorite Toy:
I love balls and tug of war toys. I also love my humpy bear--we'll talk of him later.

bacon is the best, but do love all people food. I have to eat my Beneful chicken kibbles as a staple.

Favorite Walk:
I love the doggy park in St. Catharines

Best Tricks:
I talk to my people. Mind you, they are still learning what I want

Arrival Story:
Boy, do I have a story... My mother was a hurricane Katrina survivor. I was born and lived in the wild for the early months of my life. Those nasty people captured us and I spent a lot of time travelling from shelter to shelter. I was one day from a mass euthanization, which would have been the gas chamber, when I was rescued. I am not sure who these people are who saved my life, but I thank them. I was then moved to the Welland, Ontario, which is in Canada, Humane Society where I was adopted by a wonderful lady. Her name is Chris and she takes in many animals, at her expense, and tries to find homes for them. She had me for around 2 years and I loved her very much. Due to some financial and other difficulties, she had to find me a new home which is where I have been since March 28, 2009. I live with my new family Ron, Cindy, and Samantha. Chris is still a part of my life and comes to visit. I now have many people who love me. Just think, I was close to death a couple years ago--now I am close to that yummy thing where they keep all the food.

My birthday... Forgotten?

Well, after all the grief my family has put me through this just takes the birthday cake (which by the way I didn't receive that from my people today). As you all know today is my birthday but my people forgot! How dare they? They didn't remember until the afternoon! Now, I've ALWAYS remembered their birthdays and give them a little licky here and a licky there... But they can forget it now! They did get me a few presents but it still doesn't make up for their forgetful actions. All their excuses just go in one ear and out the other. "Oh I'm sooo sorry Loubers, my job is closing down soon so I have lots on my mind" or "sorry Louann, but I am getting older, and I get no sleep I forgot because of my old age" or "I'm sorry Loubees, but school has been hard lately"! Well forget them! They think their lame excuses and their nick names for me will help!

I have got to get an lawyer because of my horrible people!

Well ta ta!

Well,for all I've done for my people I just get dirt back!Lately,my people have been delaying my walks!"Oh but its too cold out side!" they wine!Well they can just suck it up,you know,moving your body keeps you warm cold or not!Luckily,I have learned how to walk my self now!And I do a much better job than my people who think they are the goddesses of walks!For all you Dogster pals out there,here are the steps to walking perfectly!

1.Walk with your head held high to show your people that you don't have to put up with the lack of people food,walks,etc.

2.Hold the leash handle in your mouth to show that your smarter than your people.(I mean who holds the handle in their hand!?!)

3.Always march to show that you don't need orders and that you know what you are supposed to do!

If it weren't for Petey and all my other Dogster pals,I don't know what I would do!



What's up with my kibble

My people went to get me my Iams Healthy Naturals dog food at Walmart today. They happened to be out (unusual), but in it's place was Iams Premium Protection. My people bought this although it was 5 dollars a bag more than my regular food. Mommy decided to research to see if there was enough difference in the ingredients to change my diet slowly....

Oh boy, what did she find? All the recalls and all the experiences of people who had sick or dead pets due to the lack of Iams doing a proper recall. My people watch the news daily and had never heard of anything about this. Well, they took all the food they bought today back to Walmart. No more Iams for me. I have been switched to another brand, which btw, happens to have chicken as the first ingredient--not chicken byproduct. This new food is only about $3 more than that new Iams garbage. I love my new food. My people are very upset that they never knew of any of this until doing a simple internet research on ingredients.

Thankfully, we have internet. It's also good for me so I can socialize with my Dogster pals.

You know, I can live on the people food and they can forget all dog food. I would be happy and probably healthier too.
