Tonight I experienced puppymania.
I started out looking for puggle pictures online and I found a lot. I also looked for golden retriever pictures, black and yellow lab pictures and I fell in love with all of them.
So, my dad told me to delete a lot of them.
I really did not want to, because they were all so cute but I decided once the other ones get old, I can find new ones.
We are FINALLY getting a house of our own and getting a DOG of our own. I have been waiting to get a dog for the last two years. We have been fighting on a name. I want Lorelai, Luke or Rory (they come from Gilmore Girls, my favorite TV show). I have no clue what the other ones want. I have just been telling everyone every day I want
Lorelai, Luke or Rory.
Everyone else has been telling me it should be a name like Tucker, Zoe, Cash or Princess. My dad says that "Cat" would work as a name, but we are getting a DOG! Princess is also off my list because it is waaaay too girly. Zoe can't work, because my goddog is named Zoe. My cousin Morgan let me be the godmother to her dog.
Cash will not work because my godmother's (the one in Iowa) dog is named Johnny Cash, but we all call him Cash or Cashy Baby. Tucker doesn't work because our friends' dog is named Tucker.
So, all in the end, Lorelai, Luke or Rory would just be perfect.

Please welcome Buster the Bird!

Well, it all started when we said we were just going to "bird-sit" Buster.
Buster first belonged to our friends Matt and Emily and when they got married we promised to bird-sit.
We were supposed to give him back a few weeks ago, but we begged and begged to get to keep Buster.
Matt and Emily joked about how Buster is all of a sudden a good bird because he used to be the biggest scaredy cat you would ever know.
Now that he is with us, Buster just loves it. Maybe it's because we feed him almost every day?

My dog-sitting days

This summer I dog-sat two dogs. One is Zoe, who is in the picture. And the other one is Tucker, who you will see a lot in this blog. Zoe belongs to my cousin Morgan and Tucker belongs to our friends, Ken and Roxane.
Tucker is a cross between a beagle and a pug and Zoe is just a yellow lab who is very crazy. Tucker is a lot more laid back and sweeter and Zoe is more of a rough house kind of a dog. Zoe also barks a lot. My dad's probably still trying to catch up with his sleep after getting up at 5 o'clock with both Zoe and Tucker.
It was fun to dog-sit because I don't own a dog so it's very fun to care for dogs.

Whippet, Whippet good

This weekend, I got a book about all these kinds of dog breeds and my favorite one is a whippet.
Whippets are small greyhounds. I read that they are fast and very kind and gentle.
In the old days, whippets were bred for racing. That is why they are so fast.
Whippets have two kinds of speeds -- fast and asleep. My aunt Inger told me that and she took the picture to the right.
This is a dog named Daisy. It lives in an apartment in San Francisco.
When I grow up, I plan on having two whippets and one other kind of dog.

Maybe even visiting TUCKER.

Yesterday I went to a party where I hung out with a dog named Tucker. He got ran over by a car and survived. I sat with him and petted him. He was so happy he was shaking.
I felt so happy to sit with him.
I am saving my money to buy a dog.

Arf! Arf! Hi!

My name is Kerstin and what I plan on doing is just talking about animals, mainly dogs. My two favorite animals are pandas and dogs. I like to read a lot of books on animals and I am going to use this Web site to talk about interesting things I found.
If you have any stories to share, go ahead and post them.
