topher is HOME for good!

A sad day for us, but a happy one for our little guy. Toph headed down the interstate with his new family. He will have kids to cuddle him and a gsp to romp with all the time! We will miss you Topher!!!

long day for a puppy!

Well, I was a little charmer at my first adoption event, smiling and wagging my tail. But after awhile,I just had to close my eyes for a, dare I say, cat nap? My buddy Summer is keeping me company. A very nice little girl is my pillow. I loved all the kids I met at the adoption event and all the noise and crowds didn't faze me a bit-all the more fun!

Hey Everyone, Look at me!

My friend Yukiko took this picture of me at my very first adoption event on Mother's Day weekend. I am sitting pretty, don't you think? My foster mom is teaching me that if I want pets and attention I need to have "4 on the floor"-and that means paws on the ground. So even though it is really tough not to jump up to get closer to my loving foster family and other cool people I meet, I sit for pets! Neat trick!

Topher's top ten reasons to be your dog!

10. I love kids and dogs and even cats.
9. I will walk with you every day-your 4 legged personal trainer
8. I will cuddle and snuggle as needed (I love to curl up like a baby in your arms)
7. I will never complain about your cooking!
6. I promise that no squirrel will invade your yard.
5. I will love you even on bad hair days.
4. I vow to protect you from the UPS man and the newspaper guy.
3. I will keep your heat bills down-put me under your covers!
2. I will keep your kitchen floor crumb free.
1. I will give you lots of reasons to come home and curl up on the couch.

my foster family!

Look at me! Here I am with Annabel and Ceres and Cole. I wasn't sure where I was headed when we left my mom and brothers and sisters, but this place is great! I don't have to share a crate, I have my own bowl, a really big yard, and holes that my new foster sister has thoughtfully dug!

I think I can, I think I can!

Ceres is a little bit bigger (ok alot bigger) than me, but I really want to roll her over so we can wrestle. That's ok, my paws are as big as hers already, I am catching up.

ROFL-roll on the floor laughing!

Yeah, that's me, a really happy puppy!

Me and Ceres-my girlfriend!

Shhh... don't tell anyone, but Ceres the gsp is my girlfriend. She shares her toys and lets me hang with her. You need to know that I love other dogs (and even sleep with the housecat). I am really hoping that my furever family has alot of action. My foster family has 2 other dogs and 2 cats and even a kid. And you know what, I love it all!

Mom calls me "TOPHER"

I guess Christopher Robin must be a mouthful, because Mom calls me Topher. I don't care as long as someone calls me!

Want to play chase or fetch? Tug o war? We can also look for birds or squirrels! Maybe we can do everything?
