Ty Update and My Birthday

What no pictures you ask. Yes no pics. We heard back from Ty's daddy and he is having a hard time giving him up so he plans on keeping him. I think it will be good for the both of them. We said if they ever need anything to give us a call. Anyone know of any Welsh Terriers that are available. Its what my mommy and daddy wanted, so they think its best to focus on them. They sure are cute. We'd like a sweet boy, 1-5 years old to come join our happy family.

Lastly, yesterday was my 2nd birthday. Daddy bought me some new toys, bones and even got a special dinner. Kibble with Turdunken. Yummmy! I even have left overs.

Take Care

All dog lovers PLEASE help!!!!!

I am copying this post from my friend, Axel, my paws are shaking too much to type anymore (I hope you don't mind buddy).

See that photo at left? Believe it or not, that is a wire fox terrier like me! An abused, horribly neglected wire who was one of 97 fox terriers found at a Monreal puppy mill belonging to Marc-Andre Laporte. Laporte was found guilty of two counts of animal cruelty at the St. Jerome courthouse in Montreal this week. Click here to see more photos

Almost 40 foxies had to be euthanized. The surviving dogs were cared for by the SPCA and later, with the help of devoted fox terrier lovers, found wonderful foster homes where they have been living for the past 2 years, unable to be adopted until the case is finalized. Laporte is only facing six months of jail time and up to $4,000 in fines. I find that disgusting - he should be locked in a cage forever or put to sleep - he murdered 40 dogs and abused 57 others!!

But it gets worse friends.
On Feb. 22, 2008 he will be sentenced.
And at the same hearing, the judge is to decide if Laporte is to get any of his fox terriers back!

Yeah, you read that right...get his dogs BACK! Are they insane in Canada? Are they blind? What is wrong with these people!? To even consider removing ONE wire from the safety and care of their loving foster families back to Laporte is OUTRAGEOUS!

WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN.

So friend, today we are launching a two-fold campaign to prevent Laporte from getting his dog/s back. We know we can count on you to take action and spread the word:

1: Please go to the online petition. Once all the signatures are entered, we will print it out and hand it over to our friend in Montreal who has been instrumental is saving and caring for the Blainville wires, for distribution to the media (unfortunately it is illegal in Canada to hand petitions to the court).

2: Please take a few minutes to write a letter to Judge Jean Sirois imploring him to prevent Laporte from ever taking possession of his former fox terriers or of owning any dog again. If you can, include a photo of yourself and your foxie/dog. All the letters received will be put in a file and also handed to the media.

Letters should be mailed to:
Elizabeth Pierce
119 16th Street
Roxboro, Qu├ębec
Canada

Please disseminate this information on your blogs, to your fellow dog owners and friends.
Thank you for your support in this important matter.

Ty, My Uncle Comes To Visit!

Hi everyone! This is Ty, my real uncle. He lives in South Jersey and is now being cared for his mom's son. We got a call from Christine, our breeder, about a boy who needs a home. See his mommy was old and passed away. Her son can't keep him, so my mommy and daddy are thinking about it. He came over last night for a visit. He is a big boy, not fat, but bigger than I am. We got along pretty well, but will need some time to sort things out. He growelled a little at me, but all I want to do is play. I think we can work things out, so he will come over for a sleep over for a whole weekend! I'll keep all my two and four legged buddies posted on the outcome.

Show Dogs! All Terrier Show in Blue Bell, PA

One of the most prestigious Terrier Shows was this week. The Terrier Show held at Montgomery Community College in Blue Bell, PA. Me, mommy and Daddy all went today to see what it is all about. It brought me back to my puppy days as a show dog. At first I heard ramblings about if they should take me or not. They made the right decision by taking me. We met up with Axel and his parents, Finnegan and his parents and tons of other dogs. We spent most of our time by the judging table at ring 15. This is where my fellow Wires were doing their thing. Daddy was busy with his camera while me and mommy watched it all.

The Bebster Takes DC!

Standing alone with all the sites to see. We walked and walked all day. There were a ton of geese to see. I was interested but there were a lot of them so kept my distance. They were bigger than me. I really liked the Korean War Memorial. A lot of people stopped to say hi to me. Wonder if they see my blog.
The whole pack together for a wonderful picture. A really nice lady offered to take a picture of us. She called me spoiled, what ever that is. There were so many people to see I didn't know what to do with my self. We took quite a few breaks, sitting on benches in the shade drinking water.
Here is me and mom on top of the WWII memorial. I think this memorial was my dads favorite. We wanted to go to the White House to visit George, but we ran out of time it was also hot out so we did not want to over do it. I had a lot to talk to him about, but we can try next time. I was really suprised that there were not more dogs. I have to say they were really dog friendly. Lots of signs that said; no food, no bicycles, etc, but none said no dogs.

Window Seat

This is one of my favorite spots in the house. When daddy is hogging the computer, some of us have blogs to work on, I go here. I like to bark at all the people and dogs outside. Sometimes I see a squirrel or a cat too, then I get really crazy. There are other windows I can get to, but for some reason, this is my favorite.

Wow, I got a suprise on Saturday. Melissa my dog walker came over with a bunch of friends for me to play with. Asia is a puppy standard Poodle. Her paws are big and he will be too. I first met him at Mercede's bifday party. Tripper is another Poodle that I've met a few times. He is fully grown and loves to play with me. Mercedes kept us in check, making sure we were playing nicely. Thanks Melissa!

Beach Week 07

Hi all! I haven't posted in a while. This is me and Perry socked out. My family and I spent the week at the beach. I had a lot of fun playing with new dogs and sniffing new scents. It was nice not that my mommy and daddy didn't have to go to work, that means more play time.

This Sunday Mercedes, my dog walkers little girl, is having a birthday party for her. I can't wait to meet all the doggies she walks. Sounds like fun.

Weather is supposed to be really good in Philly and the N.E. Get out and romp in the grass my furry friends. Huggs and Kisses!

Manasquan

This past weekend we went to the beach. In Philly and South Jersey it's called The Shore. We go North to a small town called Manasquan, Perry the Poodle lives there with his mommy and daddy. Actually they live in Philly, but spend a lot of time at the beach. This picture is the dog beach. They don't allow us four legged creatures on the people beach. My daddy has taken me to the dog beach a few times. Most dogs are much bigger which doesn't scare me much.

I'll play with anyone. My daddy is nervous about taking me off leash. Most dogs here run free, but not the Bebster. I think he will soon, I just have to prove that I wont run away. I like coming here because of all the different smells. Also everyone is more relaxed. Perry likes to hide his sweet potato treats around the house and I find them all and try to eat them too. Mommy and daddy take them away, they say they make me poop too much.




This is us on our walk to the inlet. Here you can find a lot of people fishing, kids playing and dogs, well being dogs. My mommy and daddy really like this picture.










My daddy took lots of pictures of this loud motorized thing. He really liked it. He says he did not "work" any of these photos. He says he needs more time for that.

We will be coming to the beach again in a few weeks for a whole week. Maybe by then I'll be ready to swim with the big dogs.

Sunday Wiry Sunday

Sunday, Wiry, Sunday as Bono would say. Axel and Elliot came over for a romp in the yard today. I must say it was much fun. While the parents discussed worldly things we chased, ran and barked at each other (what else would you expect). Axel is a very stout young Wire. He enjoyed jumping into the water dish as much as chasing Elliot around. He hails from Downtown Philadelphia. He acted as the elder of the bunch. Elliot on the other hand is a puppy. He is extremely playful and likes to bark like I do.

Here we are chasing the little guy Elliot, but he does have a big heart and bark.





Elliot and Bebe show down for the dingo. I stole it from him then he got it back. In the end we both won.
Here is Elliot being himself. He jumped into the Holly bush and started digging a hole. I joined him a few times, but our parents weren't very happy. He got really dirty, thats what we do, right?

After a long afternoon of chasing, jumping, barking and chewing it was time for a cold one. In the end, after a long nap I can say it was a really good day to be a dog, especially a Wire.

I haven’t posted up in a while. Have been busy playing with my friends. Above is Willie my cousin. He lives downtown in Philly; we got to play and play a few weeks back. The heat here has been tough on me and my parents. Luckily I can fetch and play inside. Since my last post I've been to the beach, played with my new friend Eli a pit pull. We chased each other for hours in my yard while my parents and their friends grilled some food.

On another note my parents looked at adopting a sweet 2 year old Wire from the American Fox Terrier rescue only to receive this response:

"I would suggest that you enjoy Bebe. It is true that Wires are great family dogs. However, they are not a breed that enjoys sharing their home and family members with another dog.....especially another Wire. The best of friends can become enemies for no apparent reason. The results are devastating and can be very costly. Fighting with another dog in the home is one of the main reasons Wires are relinquished into rescue. For this reason, we do not place our fosters in homes with other dogs."

Now we all know that there are dogs that don't get along with other dogs. This dog did not have any notations of not being good with other dogs/cats on Petfinder. In all honesty I play well, I've spent weekends with other dogs and there has been no problems. My parents know Wires pretty well now. This dog has, unfortunately, missed a great home. It’s like saying all Pit Bulls are mean. I've met one and he is a really sweet heart. So in the end we should not make generalizations. We look at each action as a unique circumstance. Luckily my breeder wants my parents to get a sweet boy. I guess they won’t be able to rescue another Wire do to generalizations and will have to buy another.

Stay cool dogs its hot out!

The Bebster Hits NYC


Its been just over a week in my new home and all is well. My mommy and daddy have to work, which means Melissa comes by and walks me during the day. I like her, she is really friendly and plays with me when mommy and daddy can't. All week I've hear about a trip we were going on to the Big Apple. I didn't know what that meant but is sounded juicy.

Saturday morning came and my worst nightmare, a car ride. I hate the car, but know I have to get used to it. I hear that I'll be going to the beach in the summer and its too far to walk. Anyway, off we drove, it took forever. Next thing I knew I was surrounded by cars, people and buildings. We went into a building, took my first ever elevator ride and into an apartment. I don't know how people, let alone dogs live that way, but I met my first real friend, LuLu. We played for hours, chasing each other and stealing each other's toys. Mommy and daddy met little Harrison, daddy's nephew for the first time. I thought I was small!

Hi from Bebe


I recently made a big move, from Big Sky Country to the City of Philadelphia (Pat's or Geno's). I hope to find out the answer to this question, but somehow I know they won't bring me home any cheese steaks anytime soon.

So far my first weekend went well. My new mommy and daddy brought me lots of toys to play with. I'm particularly fond of the little duck that quaks. I also like the little pink pig. I'm getting used to the new neighborhood. Lots of new dogs to play with, all of them I like. So far so good.

I have to go, I hear a squirrel in the yard, but here is a picture for you.
