Do I See A Star....

Top of the Mornin to You..And a Happy St. Paty's Day Too
My little friend Winks is completely settled-in here and just loves to start out his day running around the backyard....doing a little digging...barking with the big dogs and instigating chase, race and fight you down on to the ground! 
"Who...me?"
This is how White Fluffy Dogs look in the morning...after the yard has had a night of dewy fog.... 
"Yup I was a runnin round the yard..nope I was not diggin under the deck..."
"Dude...man I only went under the deck..like you know to like totally get Winks...
like man he was totally like stuck...or like maybe lost"
"I told them not too!"
He has also discovered that it is really no big deal for this little athlete to bound up the spiral staircase to the loft on the second floor....
"No one told me that there was cat food up there...cool"  

We are working on that, new rule..."No dogs in the Loft...Cat Land...Stay OUT"  Winks is getting it but like every Terrier he is testing it! 
"Sorry...I forgot..No Dogs..Cat Land"
So Forever Family if you are reading this...this little guy will bring some hard belly laughs with him, a sweetly devilish personality and most important lots of cuddles and love.....

This one's from Me...

Hey Ya'll...
Sure is one hot ol'day..... 
That Lady took us all for a good'ol walkin...and I thought that Mollie Maie and Jake might just pass on out from the heat...pantin and all....But this little good-ol-boy was just thinkin...hot-damn I woke up in Bama again! The good news is I'ma still up north.  The bad news is I'ma still lookin for my berry own home.
That Lady has left the back door open so we can just run in an out of the house whenever we want too...that's cool.
Little more bad news...I got some junk on my trunk today, and that Lady had to wash it off..but ya know I was really really good while she did it...and truth be told the cool water felt pretty darn good.
So now I'm just restin on the vinyl floor...and runnin in and out whenever the urge moves me ....I like to go out and bark whenever that silly toy poodle next door starts up a barkin...and I love to get my feet and beard dirty ruttin in the dirt....
That Lady is a watchin Ellen on the TV....so I took over the puter to let ya'll know I'm just hangin round waitin and waitin for YOU...FAMILY...so come on by and say hey...


OK that Lady is a gettin her supper so I wanted to add just a bit more stuff to this ol'blog thing...

Quick Note....

Hey there hi there ho there...
Just wanted to let you all know that the socialization of Winks continues...
Yesterday afternoon had to go to the dentist, so took Winks along for the ride.   The dentist is a dog dude, as is his staff, they all came out...my appointment was their last...and met Winks.  He is somewhat shy at first, but never attempts to bolt away, just hangs back for a few.  He then will stretch out and gives a sniff to your hand or leg and then becomes comfortable with the new person.  Good Boy!
We then went to my folks for dinner...my parents are in the 70's and live in a senior living apartment complex.   Winks met their cat, graciously.  My parents were very impressed.  He was great with them and his new surroundings.   My Dad, a good dog man with years of experience noted that while he was cautious about exploring the apartment, he was not skittish. He was polite and gentle with them, and they both commented on how gently he took the pork-chop treats he was being offered.....from the table....Thanks Mom and Dad..."but he is being so good and sweet".  And he was, sat or laid down right between my Mom and my chairs and waited for dinner to be over....to get all the leftover pork-chop pieces...and man he got a few!
When I was leaving my Mom walked Winks out with me and we stopped at the managers office so Winks could met her.  She talked a lot about rescues and human responsibilities to animals...about they importance of rescue...on and on as people will do.  The whole time Winks sat at my Mom's feet, then when he realized this was a complete dissertation...he just laid down.  Mom was full of nothing but praise on how well behaved and how beautiful Winks truly is.
Sorry no new photo's but will get you some real soon...next post...promise!
But what I would take from this Forever Family is Winks is a great socialized easy to take anywhere dog....And just in case I have forgot to post it before it is very easy to brush and comb his beautiful coat...he has had grooming experience in his life and he is calm and really loves the whole process.
So there you have it...with more and more to come.....

Big Step....

We have some really exciting news to report....and Winks is taking it all very very seriously.


" Just in case you want to know....This is my serious face"

Last night at bedtime Winks was sleeping next to me on the love-seat...nothing out of the normal about that....He has been so good that I made the decision to let him try to sleep out of his crate.  He did great, not a sound, not a accident, nothing chewed everything gained!

"I'm so proud of myself...cause I'm a big kid now!"

With all the mud that comes with spring I can also report that he comes in the back door and will "WAIT" as I wipe of those little white feet....Winks then must leave the kitchen and "STAY" as I wipe of Mollie and Jake...I bring them in one at a time...first in first out of the kitchen, et cetera, et cetera, et cetra..... 
I can also tell you...Forever Family....he is continuing to improve each and every day on his walk, he is getting so much better at staying in a heal with a loose leash....I just can't tell you how impressed I am with him....It has been 1 week and 2 days that he has been with us....he had to have had training before he arrived here.....we are just reminding him.  I would hope that he does attend a Puppy Class, good bonding for him and his Forever Family, but all and all this guy is a true Gem...no diamond in the ruff here! 

"Hello....what are you waiting for....I'm a really good dog"

News Flash

This just in.....
Winks had his first trip to the....wait for it......here it comes....THE PARK OF THE DOGS!!!!!
Like every dog I've ever known the first trip to the Dog Park is one of the greatest events in their lives!  Very stimulating....lots to do and smell...and he did and smelled as much as he could.
Winks was on a 6' leash attached to a 15' training leash, dragging it behind, for the most part he stayed with his pack....in front of his pack.....leading his pack.....
When he did venture off into the woods he came to a whistle and a "COME WINKS" "Good Boy"  But I just didn't want to tempt the fates....
The only times he would completely stop listening was when there were dogs in front of or coming at us and he wanted to meet and greet.....He was very polite with every greeting and only attempted to mount a few...Boy of Boy....But did respond to OFF kind of....and the park was packed...first really nice day and all.  I do see the Terrier independence in him..
All three crashed out in the SUV on the way home....come to think about it...it was also the first time in the SUV with all three dogs....uneventful. Brilliant Dogs
I think he will do much better on a week day.......so we'll give that a try.
I forgot the camera...bummer...so I promise to bring it next time.    
Just want you to know Forever Family...wherever you are....he is a go anywhere...do anything kind of a guy and he does it all really really cute!
All three are fast to sleep Jake in his crate, Mollie on the daybed and Winks is at my feet....Good dogs are exercised and stimulated....Winks got that in spades today!
