I love attention & when my mommy & daddy laugh at me! I love playing with mom & dad! I growl & bark at them, & jump around when they have one of my toys.

Cats, when mommy & daddy leave me at home, getting a bath or my eyes cleaned. Getting into trouble. grrrrrr

Favorite Toy:
Playing in the water when mom or dad tries to water the yard! My "Mini Orca," or my Nylabone chew toys. Mommy's shoes, even though I know I'm not supposed to.

Favorite Food:
Zukes Mini Natural treats (salmon or chicken),bone-a-mints, carrots (raw or cooked), Newman's Own cookies!!! Yum!!!!

Favorite Walk:
The dog park & anywhere my mom & dad will take me, as long as I get to go!!!

Best Tricks:
I loves to stand on my hind legs & dance. I hop when I'm excited. I sit, lay down, stay, & dance on command now. Mom & Dad are trying to teach me to crawl, roll over, & sit up. I'm working hard to learn new tricks! I get praise & yummy treats.

Arrival Story:
My name is Bodie & I am a rescue from Priceless out of Chino Hills, CA. My new forever family found me through a friend who recommended them. I was the very first dog they went to meet. It was love right from the start! My gotcha day is 5-30-09. I had no idea that I was going home with the nice couple who lavished attention on me at adoption day at Petsmart! The first thing they did when they got me home was give me my new name! I am being spoiled rotten! Mommy & daddy give me tons of praise, a good forever home, & are taking me to lots of cool places like to the dog park (see my pic below left)! We've been a real family for more than a year now, & things are going great! I have lots of confidence, & walk with my tail held high. In spite of having a rough time for a while, things couldn't be better. I am eating yummy dog food & treats. I play games with mom & dad, have several toys, go for walks on a leash, am learning that all men & boys won't treat me badly. I am very well behaved in spite of what I have been through. No one would know by looking at me that I was terrified of men & boys, or that I refused to be coaxed out of a crate for days.

My original name was given to me by Priceless Pets...Miracle. I was found dirty, skinny, & more dead than alive near dairy farms in Chino. They took me to their rescue center in Chino Hills, but I ran away. I was gone for 2 days & nights in coyote country. The nice people there thought they'd never see me again, but I turned up hungry & tired in their driveway. They put me in a crate & there I stayed for 4 days. I was terrified to come out, no matter how hard they tried to coax me. I have come along way from the day I was rescued. I am so happy that my forever family adopted me!

I just knew it! Mommy went & decorated around me with New Year's stuff & had me pose with a champagne glass filled with something I was not allowed to drink! Bummer! Oh well, it kinda stung my nose when I went to check it out. Mom gave me lots of praise & more cookies, so it was worth it in the end. She sez I won't have to pose for anymore "silly" photos for a while since there's no new holidays.

Whew! I can just relax & be me for now! Hurray!


Merry Christmas!

Well mommy did it again! She made me wear a Santa hat with bells, & strung me with colored Christmas lights for my Christmas photo. She says I need a new Christmas photo. I feel sooooo humiliated. But mommy gave me some cookies, so I guess it's ok anyway. She said I did an awesome job too! I love hearing that I'm a good boy & that she loves me, so I put up with all her crazy ideas. It makes her happy, & that makes me real happy too...that & getting treats! I'm not sure, but I'll bet a big bag of doggy cookies that she'll come up with something for New Year's eve too.

Hope all my doggy buddies have a wonderful Christmas!



My Breed?

I hear that daddy ran into a woman at work today out walking her dog, & it kind of resembled me. She has a Japanese Spitz. So mommy & daddy started searching through pictures & found a breed that looks very much like me! They aren't sure since I'm a rescue but if I'm not a Volpino Italiano (Italian Spitz) than I am most likely an Indian Spitz. BOL Even the description of both breeds sound like me!

I'm not sure why that's important, but mom & dad have been trying to figure out what I am since my gotcha day. I guess that's something that humans like to know...they get asked a lot about me when we go places. So I guess that's why they have been looking.
