My First Day Here

Kousin Butchy tagged me to tell you about my first day here at my forever home. Here goes.

On the morning of Thursday, December 14, 2006, my mom awoke to find her wire fox terrier, Koobus III, age 14 years and 1 month, dead in his bed. They had him since he was seven weeks old and were devastated.

Later that morning my mom started making phone calls to find a new wft. Her cousin who lives by Lake Onterrier (where we went on vacation in August) had seen an ad in the Rochester, NY, newspaper about one wft puppy for sale in Binghamton, NY. (That was me.) After more phone calls, buyer and breeder connected, and here I am. I arrived here on Saturday, December 30, two weeks and two days after K3 died.

This story is much longer. There were people from the yahoo wirefoxterrier list and Wire Fox Terrier Rescue involved. Axel’s mom, Daniella Slon, stopped my family from buying a puppy from a Missouri puppy mill. My mom was on the phone for several days trying to find me. She even talked with a AKC breeder/judge, who told her that wft puppies were very had to get. He also called us, “little clowns in fur suits”.

Anyway, my breeder, a terrific lady named Cindy Smith, who along with her husband Ray, own A1 Wire Fox Terrier Kennels of Rexleigh in Binghamton, NY, and my mom and grandpa met at 10 AM in Clarks Summit, PA, north of Scranton, on Saturday December 30, 2006. Cindy handed me to my new mom, who gave me lots of hugs and kisses. Mom and gramps renamed me (my original name was Tippy) and I had a new home and new identity. KOOBUSS IV! On the way home, I slept on grandpa’s lap coming down Interstate 81, with Binghamton further and further behind me, not realizing where I was going or how my life was about to change forever.

When we arrived here, they gave me a drink and some toys to play with. They showed me around the house, and then my new mom took me for a walk to acquaint me with my new yard and neighborhood.

Later that day, my cousin Layla, a cocker spaniel who is a few months older than me, came to visit with her family. I was afraid at first because she was so much bigger than I was and besides, I was an only puppy and not used to other dogs. It took me a while to get comfortable around her. Then we played and after they left, I took a nap. When I woke up, my new mom and I played some more.

Then my mom took me to bed. I was exhausted from the journey, the walk, the playing, and the company. The next morning I took control of the household, and later that night we celebrated the start of a New Year and a new and happy life together. In March of 2007, I started blogging. You know the rest.

I love it here. I have everything I want, they dote on me, and when I bark, they listen.

Now I would like to tag Kousin Asta, Axel, and my dear Scruffy.

I think I have magnesia, or is it amnesia? Kousin Asta says I fell asleep on the cake at her pawty on Monday, but I don’t remember anything. Can someone please tell me what happened?

And I have such a headache to go with my memory loss. Maybe I need a dogchiatrist.

Ride in the Country

The other day, mom took me and grandpa for a ride in the country. We are not moving, are we.

We're still in the same place. What kind of ride is this?

Are we going for a ride, or not?

Here we go!

What are these guys? They don't even bark. (But I heard they give kisses.)

Jet Lag


I think I have jet lag. At least I hope that's what it is.

What a weekend!! What a pawty!! What a game!!

I had such a good time with Scruffy, even though he crashed the helicopter, broke an ankle, and ended up on crutches. I never did get JoePaw's pawtograph either.

Scruffy could't dance, being on crutches and all. But I still had a great time! And that Lacie!! Boy, is she a lot of fun! I think she was celebrating because her fixit surgery was cancelled.

Asta and Stanley arrived a little late since they came by boat instead of on Ruby's private jet. They brought a lot of great stuff with them--all kinds of treats! That Chilli sure knows how to throw a pawty! We had the best of everything! No bones about it. And Ruby's jet is just pawsome!

Looking foward to Asta's cowboy pawty next week. She's saddled with that. Hope she doesn't change plans on the spur of the moment and stays within her range. Does anybody know where I can get four spurs? My mom had a spur in her heel once. If I could borrow that one, then I'll only need three more.

Maybe Scruffy will be off his crutches.

As soon as it snows, I am going to have a big ski pawty here. We live close to a ski resort and everybody is invited. Who says winter has to be boring?

I think I'll take a nap.

Big Weekend

I am waiting for Scruffy to take me to the Penn State game.

We are going to have a tail gate pawty from a station waggin'.
My tail is ready and it'll be waggin'!

After the game I want to meet Joe Pawterno and get his pawtograph. Then me and Scruffy and all our doggie friends are going on Ruby's private jet to Singapaw to a beach pawty. It will be pawsome.

The New Me

Today my life was changed forever. I experienced a right of passage!

My mom gave me my first haircut. When I looked in the mirror, I thought my family got a new dog. That wasn't me!

Most of my puppy fur is gone and I am now a regular dog. Before I was a wire fur terrier. Now I am a wire fox terrier. Maybe I don't look like a puppy any more, but I can still act like one.

Sadie won't recognize me now. At least she won't be able to grab me by the neck fur anymore! Hehe!

Here are some photos of me modeling my new do. What'd ya think? Do I need to hide or not?

Hi Everybody,
We are a sports household here, with games on TV almost seven days a week and season tickets to our Triple A baseball team. My mom is the real big sports fan.

Now that football season has started and baseball season is getting real interesting with the playoff races, I would like to start a new tag game where we list all our favorites.

Hi Everybody!

My mom is finally off the disabled list and back to normal. We would like to thank everyone for their kind words and well wishes. We also send our best wishes and support to all of our friends out there who have illnesses and ailments and are in pain, too.

Yesterday mom and I went for a walk and I saw my best friend Sadie. We were so happy to see each other. Here we are playing.
Like my other video, please pay close attention to the end. Thanks.

Love, Koobie.

Here come Grandpa and me on our way back from our late morning walk today. (Mom is still on the disabled list, but doing better.)

When we get back, we do this.

We contemplate the issues of the day.

And when we are done, nothing's changed.
