Hi! My name is Lady Kaos. I decided to start a blog to try to help me from getting in trouble during the day. I sometimes get bored and get into the trash or pull something off the counter or table. This will hopefully give me something else to do during the day. Right now I am grounded, but I talked my brother and sister into letting me out for a couple minutes to start my blog. We are going on a trip this weekend and I wanted to get this done before we left.
I started my life as a puppy in a shelter. I grew up in a military family which means I've lived in several different states. At 16 months old I ended up in another shelter. I try not to think about my old family anymnore because it hurts my feelings. Mom and Dad say they think I was abused by the man because I used to be very timid around men and I hate anybody that is wearing a uniform.
The end of June of 2005 my new Mom and Dad and my Aunt came to the new shelter (Pueblo Animal Welfare). I saw them looking at me, but since there were a bunch of men around I hid behind the tree. They talked to the guy that helps run the shelter and walked out a gate. Then the guys from the shelter came into my pin and tried to put a leash on me, but I kept running away from them. I hadn't been in the shelter for very long and didn't trust these men. I now know they were good guys. The first guy led me out the same gate and I went into an area where I got to play with my new family. I showed them I was good at running and being silly and I'm good at fetching sticks. They laughed at me and talked to the guy a while and then I got put back in my pin. I was sad. Come to find out they had to go do some shopping at the Pet Store and then they came back and got me and took me home!!!
My original name was Shananae (Naenae for short) and I hated that name! For the first couple of days I'd only come when Mom called foor me, but then I figured out how much fun Dad is. I used to me timid around me, but now some of my most favorite people are men!!
I have 2 siblings. My older sister Sasha is a 3 year old miniture lon-haired dacshund. She used to be an only child so she gets a little grumpy sometimes when she doesn't get her way. Mom and her have been through a lot together so I let Mom and Sasha have some special time together once in while because I understand. But after awhile I can't stand it anymore and have to get in on some of that attention. Sasha and I play, but I have to remember to becareful because she's so much smaller than me. My brother Gunnar is different. He is about 3 months younger than me and is the weirdest looking dog I've ever seen. Mom calls him a cat. I'm not exactly sure what that means, but he's weird. He makes weird noises and his claws are MUCH sharper. Mom tries to keep them trimmed for me. We play a lot and get a little too rough and I end up with a claw stuck in my nose. He also doesn't go outside with Sasha and I. He's actually scared of stuff outside. Mom had the door open once and he was sitting in the doorway just watching us and he saw an aunt and he ran back inside really fast. I thought it was funny.
I'm learning lots of new stuff. I've learned a few new trick since coming to my new home and have a few new responsibilites I have to take care of. When dad goes hunting he puts me in charge of the entire house! It's a big job, but I'm happy to do it. I take care of all the weird noises when Dad's not around. I'm very happy when he comes home though. There are a lot of noises out there! During camping I also take care of Mom if Dad hears noises outside the tent. Last year during my first trip I stayed with Mom when we thought there was a bear outside the tent. I heard it and woke everybody up really quiet so I didn't scare it. Dad went out and it was actually a dog from another camp. Dad todl me good job. I also learned to swim during that trip! I LOVE water and I LOVE playing fetch. The water made me nervous if I couldn't reach the bottom, but I figured it out and now I have a REALLY fun new game!
I also went on my very first pheasant hunting trip. It was a lot of fun, but I was really tired. Dad said I did pretty good, but sometimes I got too excited and forgot to listen to Dad. I'll do much better next time.
I hope you keep reading my blog to learn about new stuff I'm doing. We're going on a trip this weekend. I'm not sure where but I saw Mom and Dad pack my toys in a bag and put my bed in the back seat of Mom's car. That's what happened when we went pheasant hunting, but I didn't see the gun cases so I don't think that's what we're doing this time. Whatever it is, I'm sure it will be fun. Mom also loves taking pictures so I'll ask to borrow the CDs she has the pictures on and post some pictures of me and my adventures.
I'll post more after this weekend. It's almost time for Mom and Dad to get off work so I have to go get back in the kennel before they get home. My cousin Bailey breaks out of my kennel sometimes and that makes everybody really mad and I don't want to do that.
Have a good weekend everybody!
