How We Met?

I was brought into the SPCA by my previous owner. I was tied to a tree by a chain for five and half years (seemed longer). I weighed only 38 pounds when I went into the SPCA. They said I looked like a skeleton with skin. I was covered in grease and sooo very dirty. They told me that they are going to take those people to court for neglecting me. The people at the shelter gave me my first bath and fed me really well. They also told me that I had worms living in my heart and in my intestines. My picture was in the paper for adoption. Then there were other people that kept calling this other person saying that I looked like her dog and that she should come see me. Well she finally came, saw me and stuck me in a room to see how I did with cats. No problem... I didn't hurt them. Then she brougt her dog Faith in for me to see. There was no problem with me, I was all over her like white on rice, but Faith didn't want anything to do with me. She growled and snapped at me and the lady said no. So I went back to my cage. Then a week later that same lady came back with another lady and then they left again. Then she called the shelter and said she would foster me. So on Friday April 13th I was spayed and then I was picked up and taken to another office and I have been there ever since. My old name was Goochi Pooh but I didn't know it because no one ever taught me anything. I have to stay at the office because I am not house broken and my new mommie doesn't want me to invade Faith's personal space yet. I am learning how to sit and learning my new name... HOPIE TOO! I am told that I have some pretty big paws to fill. My new mommie said that the next day she went to the SPCA and adopted me so I am not going back there. I am in my FOREVER HOME. Everyone says that I look and act just like the ORIGINAL HOPE so that is good for me. To be honest with you, I think that I hit the lottery. After all how could you resist my face.

so glad it was just supplements. i chewed on one of mom's pills when i was a pup and it wasnt a supplement. but i never chewed on anything off the ground afterwards. How are you this Sunday? Hope you have had an awesome weekend. How is your weather? we had a wonderful day weatherwise yesterday. Today is a bit hotter though. we really need some rain so hopefully that will happen. We are all doing fine here. opa has his last day of work on Tuesday. And Saturday he went to his old work, the air national guard. They are closing the base down. So they had a last flyover. It was sad. Me, oma and mom saw it from here. we had just gotten back from doing a few errands. Mom says she is going to miss those C-130s jugging over. I went to the library park yesterday and the day before so that was nice. Mom has been way behind on everything as usual. Nothing I do has helped that. so you will hopefully forgive us if we are hit and miss again. and then this month is oma and opa’s birthday. The kids(mom and her siblings) are giving them a laptop. And mom has been chosen to teach them how to use it. they have never, ever used a computer. It is going to be an adventure that is for sure. wish mom luck and tons of patience. Baby Louie is doing well and being silly. Connie is doing well with her pacemaker in. her sis came in from CO for the weekend so mom has been busy with that too. but the good news is she did grill steaks last night. She made a ton so there was plenty for all us pups. Here is some yummy grilled steak for you. wishing you a super Sunday and a terrific tomorrow. love, hugs, prayers, puppy slobbers and magical yorkie kisses, Rufus, momma Kay and Baby Louie too

Hi Hopie Too...

Glad to here Mommy is keeping you busy and you can't remember all the stuff you did. That's good that the pills Mom left out on the coffee table were only supplements, and Mom shouldn't have left them on the table. Sounds like you had a good week, and glad you are enjoying the same beautiful weather we are having. Keep up the good work, my friend, and hope you have another great week. Leaving you a vote..

Hi Hopie Too

Happy Sunday. Hope you had a great weekend. Yesterday was a busy day for us. I went to the groomer for the last time as they will be moving. Mom stayed and watched as she will be grooming me now. Mom learned all kinds of little tips. Hopefully mom will do a good job & I won’t have to go into hiding afterwards. Mom got all of my grooming supplies ordered and is still in sticker shock over the amount of money they cost. The craziest part is how much the shears cost. Some of those shears cost $400. Needless to say, mom didn’t get the $400 dollar shears but the ones she got were still plenty expensive as she had to get a straight pair, curved pair & thinning pair. She skipped getting a grooming table as all of the affordable ones weren’t sturdy enough to hold a dog my size. So she is going to use the coffee table that is stored under the bed in the spare bedroom. It is big & sturdy enough to hold me. And the best part is that it is free. Mom says I am quickly running her into the poor house. I’ve been taking my liquid medication but let me tell you I sure don’t like it. Mom says I remind her of a little kid because I make an awful face & make gagging noises. I had to take it while I was at the groomer’s yesterday and she couldn’t stop laughing at me. She said I was too funny. So far I haven’t had any reaction to the reduced dose and hopefully I will continue to do well. BBS. Regis

I would like to thank everyone for the 1st Year DC Anniversary wishes. Under the circumstances, I am not as happy as I would have been had we not lost Little Girl yesterday. I am truly glad to be a member of the DC Family. Our whole family would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our dear friends for the outpouring of love and sympathy upon the loss of our sweet Kitty Cat, Little Girl Cat. She was the sweetest little thing and loved to lay in Mommys lap and lick her like a puppydog. Mommy is so very sad and has a broken heart, again, and your love means the world to us. Again, Thank You for caring about us. Day 3 of my DOTM run! You guys are the best. Friends are the most important thing in the world to me after family! I want you to know I appreciate each and every one of you. Now, For the topic I promised you..... ~~ The BEST Dog Movies You May Not Be Watching ~~ Today may sound like a rerun of yesterday, but it is not. Today's movie is another version of the story of Bobby. "The Adventures of Greyfriars Bobby" stars James Cosmo, Oliver Golding, Gina McKee, Sean Pertwee, Greg Wise and Christopher Lee. Once again, liberties are taken, but the story is still worth viewing. This little dog is clearly destined to live forever in the hearts of the people of Edinburgh and , for that matter, all over the world. You can find a copy of the book with the actual true factual account of Greyfriars Bobby online. My Mommy owns it as well as both movie versions. I highly recommend you check it out. I think you will like it. Don't forget to vote for our friends with Birthdays/Anniversaries and the DOTD each and every day this month! I love you all and look forward to making even more friends this month! PuppyDog Kisses and Tail Wags, Chewie Cairn Cuddles, Maya...Campaign Mgr and Sister!

Hi Hopie Too

Okay, Here Goes! My first day of my DOTM run! First, thanks to everyone for your friendship and for any and all votes during this run. I appreciate each and every one of you. Now, For the topic I promised you..... ~~ The BEST Dog Movies You May Not Be Watching ~~ The first of my recommended movies is Walt Disney's Iron Will. It's based on an incredible true-life story and stars Mackenzie Astin as a young man thrust into adulthood when he races his team of sled dogs in a grueling and treacherous cross-country marathon, hoping to win the $10,000 grand prize that can save his family from financial ruin. It's Entertaining, Inspirational and Captivating. This is a movie you won't want to miss! It also stars Kevin Spacey, David Ogden Spears (MASH) and Brian Cox. Check it out, you will be glad you did! Don't forget to vote for our friends with Birthdays/Anniversaries and the DOTD each and every day this month! I love you all and look forward to making even more friends this month!

Hi Hopie Too

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you; how did that ultrasound go that you mentioned? How are you doing, how is Faith? When was the last time you were in "lock down"? I remember those days...not that they're far in the past, bol. I recently got the pleasure of running around with my furblings during the day, and now mama lets me sleep in her bed, no more crate. That is, if I stay well behaved and continue to go through the nights without any accidents. But boy oh boy is it nice to curl up in her bed, I like to get there first to try and pick out as much leg room as possible, not that I really need it, it's just that I can, bol. Have a great day, puppy hugs, Maggie

Come visit me, Jack, Lilly, Maggie, Mitch
