Pogo Moose

I'm very well behaved and I know not to jump up on things.  Instead I just jump straight up and down like I'm on a pogo stick!

dental work

I had a tooth that needed to be taken out not long ago - it was broken.  In fact, it was loose and there were two pieces of the tooth.  So the vet told me I should have it taken out.  I got to go back to the vet, which I love, but my mouth  hurt afterward.  It's better now, but I have a gap in my smile now:



here are the pieces of my tooth:


I've recovered fine though:

helping with laundry

Look at what a good little helper I am.  I can do laundry!  It's pretty easy, you just play in piles of clothes.  Hank and Daisy helped too:




Resting on the job!


 Phew!  tough work!

curious little moose

There's still lots of things that are new to me.  I'm a very curious dog.  Sometimes new things scare me a little, but for the most part, I just want to know what is going on.  I'm almost always in the center of what is going on, curious to see everything:

my past

I don't really like to think about my past too much.  It was a pretty hard life.  It's funny, even though I was very very very hungry when I was found on the streets, I've actually lost weight since I've come to live in a house.  I'm putting on some fat - you can't see my ribs like you used to be able to, but my big muscled shoulders are getting smaller.  Maybe I was used as a fighting dog while I was on the street.  Or maybe I just don't have to run around so much now that I have nice warm beds to sleep on during the day.  Here are pictures of me - on the left is me today, on the right is me about a day after I came off the streets.  I still have big shoulders, but not quite as big as before.

my brother hank

Hank is my big brother.  Even though he's about 30 pounds bigger than me, I still like to be the alpha male around the house.  Sometimes we have disagreements, but for the most part we get along just fine.

tennis is my favorite sport!

I'm learning a new sport.  It's called tennis.  I'm not sure the exact rules, but basically it involves a fuzzy little yellow ball.  I think the goal is to take apart the yellow ball.  I'm getting quite good at pulling fuzz off the ball and chewing it up!  Maybe I'll be the next great tennis superstar -  I could be named Boris Barker!

little baby mooseykins

I didn't really get to have much of a childhood.  Growing up on the street meant that I had to be an adult really quickly.  Now, I've been off the street for over a month and I'm getting quite comfortable in my new refined life.  In fact, it's giving me the opportunity to re-live some of my childhood.  See -- I like being held like a little baby moose!

sleeping moose

I love to play and run around, but at the end of the day, I get pretty sleepy.  Maybe it's from my days of living on the street, I fall asleep quickly.  Look at my slumbering eyes:

interrupted sleep!

Pavlovian conditioning

I keep hearing about Pavlovian conditioning.  Something about how I drool when I know I'm getting fed.  I don't know what all that means, but I do know that my mouth starts to water when I'm waiting to eat!  Look at this video, if you look carefully, you can see how much my mouth waters!

i'm a lap dog

Guess what I realized, I'm actually a lap dog.  I always thought I was too big to be a lap dog, but I tried it out, and it turns out that I'm just the right size to sit in a lap.  Look at how perfectly I fit:

table manners

I've learned to sit and wait until I'm told it's ok to eat just like my friends.  That's pretty good table manners don't you think?!

walking around the neighborhood

I like to go walking around the neighborhood.  Look how cute my little ears flop around when I walk!

I'm so cute with my friends!


This is me with my cone on for the final day.  I got a little dirty playing in the yard.

I met a horse!

Today on my walk, we went by some big four-legged animals.  I thought they were big dogs, but I learned they are called horses.  I was very good around the horses, I just sat and watched!  Oh, and good news, my cone is off!

Look at me sitting and posing withe the horses:


And then a horse came close!


Look at how well I did with the horse!

my friend duchess

Hello!  Guess what?!  Duchess and I are starting to become friends!  She doesn't run away from me as much and I don't chase her around.  She's still very interesting to me, but we are making great progress.  In other news, I still have my cone on.  I had to go back to the vet because I had an infection where I got fixed.  But I like the vet, so it was ok.  And now I'm doing much better!

See here are Duchess and I:

I'm so ready to have my cone off!


Monday, November 22, 2010

No cone will slow me down!

I still have my cone on.  It came off a little too early last time, so now I have to keep it on to make sure I heal up from getting fixed.  But look how fast I got with it on!  

video

The cone has gotten a little beat up.  And I'm a little beat from running around.

I'm Edu-ma-cated!

When I lived on the street, nobody every cared about my intelligence.  Now that I'm off the streets though, I'm learning things very well!  I've learned to sit, come, walk on a leash, and I'm learning stay!  I'm also learning that staying in my crate during the day isn't so bad.  I get a rawhide when I go in the crate!  Look at how well behaved I am!

But in spite of all this, nobody has wanted to adopt me forever yet.  That makes me sad :(

over a week off the street!

Hi everyone!  I'm happy to say that I've been off the street for over a week now!  It's been a busy week.  I got "fixed," I got all my shots, I went to the vet twice, I'm learning to get along with my brother and sister, I'm learning not to chase after Duchess, and I'm learning all sorts of new commands.  I'm also putting on some weight so I'm not skin and bones anymore!  Wow!  What a week!

 Now that I don't have to worry about all the dangers of being on the street, my personality can shine through!
Look at my brother and sister!  I'm the youngest!

More with Duchess!

I just want to play with her, why doesn't she want to play!!?

Daisy and I like to play together now!  Maybe I can play with Duchess like this!  I used to just hold my tail between my legs, but now I like to wag it every now and again.

Duchess the cat

Duchess the cat and I have been getting to know each other slowly and surely.  Sometimes I'm scared of her, sometimes I want to play with her, sometimes I just like to stare at her.  But I keep getting told I'm a good boy when I don't chase after her, so that's what I'm going to keep doing!
look how well i'm doing!

do I snore?

video

umm, this is not a good look

I got a new collar.  But it's not a pretty one.  In fact, I look like a big flashlight.  I've heard that it's to keep me from licking myself while I heal, but it just makes me run into things.


Oh and another thing - last night, my twin brother appeared at the house!!!  He looks exactly like me and he stands in the glass door at night.  My daddy calls him Reflection.  Reflection is a silly name for a dog.  But when I growl at him, he growls at me.  And he moves exactly like I do - if I move one way, he moves the same way!  And, he's wearing a cone exactly like me!  I don't see Reflection anywhere else but on the shiny glass door, well and sometimes on the window, but I growl at him when I see him.  What are the chances of me having a twin brother named Reflection!

 why am I the only one who is wearing a cone?

getting fixed...

I went to the vet again today.  There were lots of nice people again, but this visit was different.  They said I was getting fixed.  I don't know why they call it getting fixed because I don't feel like anything was fixed.  In fact, my boy parts feel quite different now.  They shaved a little spot on my arm too.  I've been relaxing at home now.  Everybody is so nice at the vet.  They all tell me I'm a cute little guy.  In addition to getting fixed, I got a microchip put in me!  I'm a robot dog now!  I also got some medicine so that I'll be all healthy from my days on the street.


Oh, and my daddy told me to tell everyone that I stayed in my crate all day yesterday and was such a good boy.  We also went on a walk yesterday and I didn't even pull on the leash much at all.  It's fun to walk around a neighborhood that has grass!

Here's some more pictures of me from today!


These are my brother and sister.  We're getting along much better now, but I still am looking for that little gray cat!
Look how handsome I am! 
All the other street dogs would be jealous of me now! 
I think I'll rest for a bit to recover from my day at the vet

The vet visit!

Today I went to the vet.  It was fun!  I got to ride in a car again and we went to this place with lots of friendly people.  There were some other animals there too and I was excited to see them.  Everybody thought I was such a pretty dog!  The doctor looked at me and gave me some shots.  I didn't even cry because I'm a tough little guy.  The people at the vet told me I am 56 pounds and about a year old!  The doctor told me that I was a "healthy pet!" and gave me an "excellent" prognosis!  And the nice lady at the vet gave me a rawhide.  I like her a lot!  

I've heard that I'm going back to the vet tomorrow to be fixed, but I don't know what that means.  I mean what would need to be fixed if I have an excellent prognosis?  Hmm.... well, I guess I'll let you know tomorrow.

This is me eating -- I'm hungry.  I keep hearing that I don't have food aggression.  I don't know what that means but people like sticking their hand in my food.  It doesn't seem to bother me.
