Arrival Story:
Over the last three years I have cared for my mother full-time who is in a wheelchair and helped care for my brother with Lou Gehrigs (we lost him in May of last year). My daughter thought I deserved to have the dog of my dreams since I have been "giving so much to others" as my daughter said. OMG, I had no idea how needy and sensitive these dogs MY GREATEST CHALLENGE SO FAR...and also MY GREATEST JOY. Even with all his antics, he keeps me sane and keeps my days from being anything but boring. I have waited almost my entire life and probably wouldn't have spent the money on one for myself - that is why I am so grateful to my daughter and husband for thinking of me in this most wonderful way. I am truly blessed!

Cairo - It's all about me!!!!

Sioux City, IA

Wild Man:
I love being outside but when they open the door to let me back in, I tear through the house for about 3 laps. And when Grandma is in my way with her wheelchair, I dont hesitate one moment, I just jump up and over the couch to continue my laps!

My Grandma:
As much as I love all the attention on me, I take time for my Grandma every morning. She is in a wheelchair all the time and can't do anything but has always loved dogs. So every morning when she wakes up, I go in and give her some special lovin just for her. I'm tall enough now that she can reach my head from her bed. I just love her!!!!

Man, thought I was going to the vet for a checkup - boy was I wrong! That needle is biggggggggggg. But I guess I better tough it up cause my mommie wants me all to herself and that's why she did it I guess...gonna be a little more leary next time we see the vet though, lol.

My momma loves me so much. I just learned to put my toys away! And she gave me extra treats because I put a couple away on my own later. I'm such a good boy. And only 6 mos. old.


I'm very sad.

I got "fixed" on Tuesday - totally against my will! I want to be on the internet with all my pals but all I want to do is just lay around and sleep. As soon as I heal, and get my ego back, I'll be back online woofing with everyone. Bark at ya later.
