My Special Pet Camps

I have 4 dogs. they are so so so cute. Lovable, squeezable and can be used as pillows.Their names are Scully, Dali, Cyrus and Leo. They are inside dogs that go outside a lot. They are mostly rescues.

Scully is a Chihuahua mix, she is soft and small. I love the way she looks. She is black and white with big bug eyes. She has a big stripe of white down her chest. She has no fur on her elbows. There is a white stripe around her eye. I call it an “eye stripe.” On her chin there are a few white hairs and my dad calls it her “soul patch.” Scully got on the kitchen table today. She’s jumpy and catchy. I have to hold her really tight then she gets a little wild. Like “ahhhh! let me go!” Sometimes when you hold her she licks. Eventually she will stop.We adopted her in January of 2012 and her birthday is in October. She is still a tiny baby, We love to dress her up.

My mom loves artist names. Dali is my favorite dog. Her real name is Dali Apple. She is named after the famous painter Salvador Dali. She is a harlequin Great Dane. She is still very soft even though she is 4 in people years. She is 28 in dog years. I sleep with her. She makes the best pillow ever in the world. We fight overnight and I always end up with a scratch in the morning. Well, not always! I usually end up with my head on top of her belly. Dali acts silly and loves to run. She doesn’t like it when her two brothers fight. She is an ankle-biter – she literally ankle bites – but only dogs.

Cyrus is a  boy Great Dane. I love him so much, like crazy, because he loves me back. His color is brindle. Brindle is stripes of black, dark brown light brown, dull brown, orangey-brown and white. He has a couple of stripes of white. He has a white stripe on his chest. He is a huge, whiny baby. He’s really 6 in people years. That is 42 in dog years, but he acts like a little kid. He can sometimes be grouchy. We call him the old, old man.

Cyrus, Alex and Scully – Cuties!

My mom’s favorite dog is Leo. He is named after the artist, Leonardo Da Vinci. Our Leo loves to jump, bounce and play with toys. He is a black Great Dane. He is also a rescue. He loves to play with Scully and they look alike.

I have my own dog camp with my dogs. I jog them, let them watch t.v., give them water and snacks. I teach all of them tricks. Scully, Cyrus and Dali are helpers. Dali is my camp greeter. Whenever I plan camp she goes way early so she can help everybody in. I blow bubbles and throw balls for them and throw chew toys. Then I can tell what their favorite activity is. Dali’s best skill is running. She’s so good at it. Dog camp takes place upstairs, outside, my room and in the kitchen. The kitchen and my room are if they misbehave. I put them in there and they stay for the rest of camp! Scully helps me at my desk. I have a folder for each dog. I write their names on the folders. I make take home notes for each dog. Cyrus just lays there and barks and whines if one of the other dogs does something bad. The dogs get check marks, A-s and A+s  if they do a good job. Leo mostly gets just check marks. Cyrus and Scully get A-s and Dali gets A+s.

I enjoy teaching because the dogs learn new tricks. Spending time with them is how I learn about them and what I do with them. Dog camp makes me feel good about myself. I HEART DOG CAMP. I bet they love it, too. I can tell they love me by the way they wag their tails and lick me.
