Playful Pup

I love to play! I like to toss around toys in the yard and play chase with the resident hound. I have so much energy!

I chase after toys that my foster parents throw for me but I also like to toss them into the air and catch them! Sometimes I get so excited I start doing zoomies!

I love being outdoors, but really I love any place I can be by hoomans. I will take all the pets you can give me and then some!

This is the face I make when I want the hoomans to share their snacks. It's very effective!

In A Relationship

You will meet me and you will love me! I am just that sweet and lovable. It's true - I love all people and will shamelessly relish in all the affection you care to give. And when you're done loving on me, I may give you a nudge or two just to let you know you dont have to stop on my account and then I'm either off to bless the next person with my presence or off to take a snooze in my kennel. I'm a pretty laid back no fuss go-with-the-flow kinda girl.

My human is not so keen on me just helping myself to her food so she's teaching me something called manners. Personally, I don't see a need for them and I'm not to crazy about learning them but she insists so I'm learning how to stay "back" when my human eats.

And apparently, pushing through every doorway my human goes through is a no-no too so I'm learning how to "stay" as well. Manners Smanners. Not a fan but we'll give it a try but only because there are treats involved and im all about the treats!

I'm not positive, but I'm fairly certain human expects me to just jump into the SUV but i see it as my duty to help her increase her upper body strength so I make her lift all my 71 lbs of dead weight. She'll thank me when she wears a sleeveless blouse this summer.

I got to go to the dog park early this morning when there were only a few dogs there. I was super excited to see more people and other dogs because that means lovings from the people and playing chase with the dogs! It took a while for my human to trust that all was good before she let me off the leash and even more time to take the muzzle off. I was becoming impatient but she finally did and boy oh boy did we have fun! I chased them and they chased me and that lasted like 3 minutes before they collapsed in exhaustion. I tried to get them to chase again but they didn't budge. They were pooped puppets. My human called for me so I sauntered on over, let her leash me and lift me into the SUV (remember.....toned arms are my gift to her) and we went home. My human lounged on the couch so I got in my crate and didnt move a muscle for an hour and a half.

This being a pet stuff is awesome!

So I'm settling in with my human by learning what I can and cant get away with. Still not a fan of all these rules and manners but I'm slowly getting the hang of most of them. I give my human a little more space at dinner time...for the most part. I do check in often to see if she's reconsidered and needs me to help eat her dinner. Afterall, it's strictly for her benefit. It's not like I ENJOY eating french fries or steak or cheese crackers the little guy keeps dropping all over the house. Nope! Dont enjoy that all. Just watching out for my human's waistline and vacuuming duties. A girl's gotta earn her keep!

Like my new pic? Yeah, that's me out on a walk this morning with my human. We came across 2 bunnies that were like RIGHT BESIDE ME before either of us saw them! My human had a minor freakout but I just stood there, gave a slight jerk on my leash and watched them watch me. It was like a human/bunny/greyhound standoff. Only thing missing was the dramatic background music. We all just stood there watching each other for several moments then I lost interest and started moving on. I could tell human wanted to stay and admire the cute bunnies but I had things to see and do.

Have I mentioned how much I love other dogs? Love, love, love them! My human has taken me to the dog park early in the morning when there's only a few dogs there and after I cautiously check them all out we get to play, play, play! We play tag a lot but I never want to be it....I prefer the chase part! Oh, I catch em. Every single time. Havent met one yet that could outrun me but boy can they turn on a dime! How the heck do they do that? Just when I think I got em, they disappear! It's like magic. Poof! They're gone. I slow to turn around and there they are, running the other way! It's so much fun I think I'd really really like a brother or sister to live with me because I do get lonely at home by myself. My human turns on CNN every morning before leaving me and gives me a tshirt that smells like her because I like that, plus, now I dont have to take them outta the dirty laundry basket anymore (apparently that's frowned upon too.). All that helps but I would really like another dog to keep me company or some humans to stay at home with me all day would be awesome too! All this personality and awesomeness should not be kept from the world. I have love to give to the people!!!

Shall I update you on my human's attempts to get me to jump in the vehicle? Yeah. Ain't gonna happen. She can put every treat known to mankind on the bumper and I'm just gonna stand there and look at it. Sniff a little maybe, but that's it. I did put my paw up on the bumper once and my human got all excited and gave me treats but yeah, that's it. That's all you're gonna get. I'll be right here. Waiting for you to put me in the car. It's good for ya....keep those arms and abs toned. I'm saving you that gym membership.

Ta for now!
