Arrival Story:
I decided it was time to add to our family of two dogs. There was Duke a seven year old "little monster" who rulled the roost, and Gus a four year old beautiful white german shepherd who is a bit frightened agressive espically to other dogs. I thought a very friendly female dog might help balance out the group. So I started searching the web sites of all the local shelters for a light colored female lab. Her name would be Tuesday, because I like the way the word sounds. If I couldn't find a yellow lab, my next choice would have been a chocolate lab and her name would be Ruby Tuesday (as in the Rolling Stones song). I searched for seven months and didn't find the right one. Then one day a read Dean Koontz's book "The Darkest Evening of the Year". The main character in this book is an angel golden retriever. I then decided I would add goldens to my search. Two weeks later I found my girl. She was the perfect match. She is so loving, and easy going. She was estimated to be about 1 years old. Iwent to see her before she was actually available. She was too skinny with all her bones visible, she had 3 very bad wounds on her right front leg, but she appeared sweet and seem to do well with the dogs in her kennel. I hurried back two days later as soon as she was available. I spent about an hour with her in the shelter yard. At first she just wanted to escape and she really seemed to be atracted to men. But, the main character was how she related to the other dogs. I felt that she could be the perfect addition to our family and I was right. And, since she was a red golden retriever the perfect name for her was Ruby Tuesday (usually known as Tuesday).

Believe Walk

Oh Diary, mom and I went to the Believe Walk today. The Believe Walk is a fundraiser for local cancer patients. It was amazing. There were thousands of people and tons of dogs. Us dog were part of the Bark and Believe. Mom and I met some of mom's coworker's there. Her boss was there with her dog Nadia. Nadia din't like me. Woof, Woof Snap. I decided I should stay away from her. There was so many dogs. Lots and lots of goldens. One golden had pink ribbons in her ears. Next year i hope I can have pink ribbons in my ears. The bark and believe booth gave me a pink scarf and one of mom's friends made me and Nadia pink scarves with our names on them. I looked so pretty with my two pink scarves.

When the walk started, it was so exciting. Their was loud music, people cheering and pink and white confetti everywhere. The walk was 3 miles down through and old beautiful neighborhood. So many people were out to cheer us on. There were cheerleaders from all the local schools cheering, local school bands were playing, one man playing the saxophone in a yard, several bands playing in the front yards, and so many people were sitting on their porches cheering us and thanking us for what we were doing. It was amazing.

It was such a great day. I met so many new friends. I was petted by so many people and I met so many new dogs. Two people even wanted to take my picture (I posed beautifully for them). But the very best part came at the end. When we were finished with the walk and we were so tired and hot, we rested under a tree. The cold, damp, muddy grass smelled so good and felt so refreshing that I rolled and rolled in it. AHHHHHHHHHHHH. It felt so good.


Doggie Pool-Ooza

I had the best day today. My mom and I went to the Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park for the Doggie Pool-ooza. Oh, What fun. We got their early, because the were giving out goody bags to the first 100 pups. Mom's friend Debi and her handsome Corgi Einstein met us there. He is so cute.

The park opened up it's pool for us pups. Since it is the end of the season and the water park is now closed, they thought it would be a good idea to let us pups have a fun day. And, boy oh boy were they right. What fun.

I swam, I sniffed, I chased and I met so many new friends. I even entered the talent competition. My friend Einstein entered the little dog races and the dog/owner look alike contest. Neither of us won a prize, but that was OK, because we were there just for the fun.

Then on the way home, mom and I saw a most beautiful sight. We were on the 10 freeway, when we came up to an overpass that had three beautiful, shiny, red Ontario fire trucks parked on it. The center truck was the big ladder truck. This truck had it's giant ladder extended up, with an American flag waving in the breeze. It made mom cry. What a beautiful tribute to the heroes, and all those who lost their lives and love ones on 9/11.

Mom and I took a moment to be thankful that we live in a country where we can freely enjoy a simple dog day at the park and have brave people who will protect us and defend us. We are so blessed to live in a land of freedom and not one of hate and oppression.


Gotcha Day

OMD Diary, yesterday was my first gotcha day anniversary. I can't belive it has been a whole year since I came to live in my wonderful home. What a year it has been. I must be the luckiest girl in the world.

My family had a beautiful party for me. I got lovely presents. A purple octopus and a blue scarf. Mom made some yummy cupcakes that we dogs and the people could share. She learned the recipe here on dogster by the way. The boys and I had a great time. Then some of my dogster friends had a party for me and sent me rosies and cards.

My life here is wonderful. I am so blessed to have found this home. I heard my mom tell a friend that I was one of the best decisions she has ever made. I would agree. I love it here.

Mom has also said that she can't believe what a treasure she found at the shelter. She says that she is sorry that my first family missed out on the delight that I am. But she is so glad that I am her delight now. And, she wants me to remind anyone who might read this that the shelters are full of delights waiting to be found.
