Four Months!

Hey Everypawdy!

Its my 4 month ampuversary today! I got to go to Mill Valley and hang out with my Tripawd friends! It was so great to see Shelby and Maggie and 4 legged Tani. Bob (Cherry’s dad) was there and we ran into Cemil on our way back to the truck. We had to leave early but it was a beautiful day and there was lots of mud and it was pawesome!

I am finally starting to really get the hang of this Tripawd thang. I am feeling stronger every day and just discovered tennis balls! Woohoo! What a great invention!

ps I am still looking…….for that furever home. There has been some interest but when it comes down to it no one has been able to deal with the fact that I am a tripawd :(. If I had 4 legs they would be fighting over me, oh YES they would. I am beautiful, I am sweet, I am funny, I am smart, I learn fast, and I want to please, what more could anyone want in a young GSD boydog?

pss Photo is from December. Yesh! Snowballs in Oakland!! It was pawesome!!!

Hoppy New Year Everypawdy!

Hey Everypawdy!

Me and my FGM

Hoppy New Year to all my tripawd friends! Hey, I am still around and looking for my furever home–don’t forget about me OK? I have been having lots of fun with my foster family but I sure would like a furever home soon! It has been so long since my FM (foster mom, thanks Gerry!) has posted anything for me……lots have things have happened since then.

I have gotten really good at basic training and I am learning how to walk on a gentle leader harness.  And everybody still thinks I am really sweet.  I went to my FGM* and FGD’s house for Christmas.  My FGM kept asking my FM  how many dogs are you bringing for Christmas? They just took me and I was sooooo good! I just settled down and hung out with FGM for awhile–she reaaalllly likes me—much better than Codie Rae or Smokey, they jump on her and bruise her delicate skin! Then I went for a walk with FM and FGD and met some kitties! That was very interesting. One just sat there so I did too! Then I lay down to watch it. The other one was stalking us and I woofed and jumped at it a little. But then my FM made me sit and watch it for awhile and I settled down.  I think I would like a kitty with the proper introduction….why not? I like everybody else!

I just learned how to go up and down really steep stairs!

I hope everybody has had a great New Year’s Day! We went to the SNOW!! My second time….I LOVE the SNOW!!!!

Take a Chance on Me!

Hey Pawdners!

I have my own blog! YeeHaw! So, yup, its true, I am looking for a furever home and the sooner I get one the better! I am liking it here an awful lot at my foster home but don’t want to get too settled, ya know what I mean? So why don’t you think about giving me a chance? I can guarantee you woCaruso_5n’t regret it!

Since I can speak for myself now I can give you better idea of what I am all about! Like I said, I am settling in here at my foster home and relaxing into the good life! I am letting my true personality show, a little at a time (don’t want to scare anybody :o). I am trying so hard to be a good boy, and most of the time I am,  but heck, I am a teenager and sometimes I just cant keep it under control. I have this obsession with paper, YUM!  My foster pawrents are learning that when I am quiet I am usually sleeping, but every once in awhile….when I am really quiet….I might be off looking for another tasty paper treat! That is really the worst thing I have done so that isn’t so bad is it?

I am working hard at understanding what my foster pawrents want of me. I am getting the sit thing pretty good and am working really hard at the down thing. I am learning to wait at the door and that when they say ‘watch me’ I have to look into their eyes and then I get to go out. I do love treats and they seem to come each time I get something right so I am going to keep trying to learn all this new stuff as fast as I can! Nobody ever asked me to do anything before so I am starting from square one here.

I just love riding in the truck. I will ride in a crate in the back but I really love to ride up front in the cab with my foster dad. I just settle right in and sleep! He takes me out for a walk every day and I can go for up to half a mile now! Then I get tired and we go home.  Codie Rae and Smokey let me play with them sometimes but I don’t really know how to get them to play. Codie Rae is such an Alpha Doggy she puts me right in my place when I get too fresh. I am learning though! I think they are really starting to like me!

Yesterday we had SO much fun! We went to something called a “Tripawd Pawty”! I got to meet really big tripawds (Cemil) and little tiny tripawds (Maggie) and a beautiful blonde tripawd named Shelby (sigh). And superathlete tripawd Caira Sue! Everybody was so nice and their people were so nice. I got along with everybody and they all liked me! They said I was sweet! Here’s just a couple of pictures from the pawty. You can see more over at Caira Sue’s blog. And you can get some more information about how to make me a part of your family and see more pictures of me over on Codie Rae’s blog!

I love blondes!
