Arrival Story:
I always wanted a cocker spaniel, from when I was a kid. When the rules changed at our apartment complex to allow dogs, we looked and looked for a local cocker breeder. Finally we found one with puppies available. I was looking for a buff female. She said, "I don't have any buff females, but I do have a little chocolate male." I said, "CHOCOLATE??!!" We just went to "look at him," and the rest is history.

Hershey's parents are champions (his dad is an international champ), and one of his litter mates is winning championships as well. But Hershey is neutered (per agreement with the breeder, and because we wanted to), so there's no pressure on him. He's just a fun-loving snuggle bunny.

Forums Motto:
When you're chocolate, life is sweet!

I want to let all my pals know that you won't be seeing me or Winkie around Dogster fur the next six sleeps or so. Mommy and daddy are going to the middle of the country to visit daddy's mommy, and we can't go with them. So we'll be staying at the dog lady's house, where we stayed last year when they went to see the eagles and whales and sled doggies.

I think they have their best adventures with us, but sometimes we just have to stay behind.

Mommy isn't taking her confuser, and she won't let us take it either. So no Dogster fur us. And we're missing Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrrrrrrr!!! But our pal Bailey in the PDPC group made us these pawsome pirate photos, and we just have to share them! Mine is


You'll have to visit Winkie's Diary to see his! See you in a week!


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...

We went on an adventure a few sleeps ago. It was an ovfurnight road trip to a place we've sniffed befure. Was it a good idea? You decide.

Furst of all, daddy wasn't feeeling too well. His nose was cloggy and hurt so much it made his teefers hurt. And daddy does the driving. But he wanted to try. So he and mommy packed up the car, and we took off furst thing in the morning. We drove fur days or hours or something, all along the edge of the world with the ocean outside mommy's window. I love that!!

The place we stopped is called Carmel. If you look up Dog Friendly towns, you find it on evfurry list. Winkie and I can go in all the shops there, and run without leashes on the beach. Most of the hotels like us, too! Lots of restaurants have patios where we can eat with our pawrents. And there is a doggy store there called Diggidy Dog that sells EVERYTHING doggy! They even keep treats in big baskets at nose-level! Oh yes, we love Carmel!

But this time, we hardly went into any shops. We went into one fur daddy as soon as we got there, then daddy just wanted to go nap in the hotel room. We stayed with him and napped, too. Mommy went off on her own with her camera. When she came back we all went out to a dinner place, but daddy got chilly and after they ate we all went straight back to our room. Then I got the pee-pees. I had to pee so bad, I went on the floor! TWICE!! I didn't have time to scritch on the door like I'm supposed to. Mommy always brings clean-up stuff, so that was okay. But after that, mommy couldn't sleep fur watching me, and she took us outside two more times. I peed and peed and peed. ::whew!::

The next morning is when we usually go to the beach. Daddy felt better, so we went. I love running off-leash in the sand!! But the beach was different this time. It was later than we usually get there, and there was water all ovfur the place. We had to walk right through it to go anywhere. Winkie loved it, he went splash-splash-splashing right across. Me, I hate getting my feets wet. Grrrrrr.

Winkie says WHEEEEEEEE!!!

Me, not so much...

Then Winkie got too full of himself and went tearing off and up a flight of stairs he found! Daddy had to go chase him and bring him back, because you know, Winkie can't hear if you call him. That was the end of off-leash fur Winkie. BOL!!

After the beach, when we got back in the car, something happened to my back! OUCH! I went YELP!!! When I got out again, I was walking a little funny, and mommy and daddy poked around to see where it hurt. It's my back. It still hurts, but not a lot. I'm walking fine, even trotting! My tail still wags. But, I want to stay in my crate, I don't want my back rubbed and I do NOT want to go up any stairs. Mommy was going to take me to the vet yesfurday, but we couldn't get in. He told her to watch me (she was already watching me) and if I'm not better by tomorrow, then we'll go.

So it was good, and it was not so good.

Woof, everyfur! I think it's about time I made a new diary entry! Things are still not pawfect on Dogster. In fact there was one whole day when none of us could even get here, because the evil Cookie Monster was blocking the gate! BAD Cookie Monster!!

He seems to have got enough cookies at last, and now most of us can get here again. Winkie and I can play in our groups, and see the Community Page, and send our pals rosies fur Barkdays and Diary Awards and evfurrything. Sometimes we have to use a battering ram and make several tries, but we don't give up. It's tricky to get our posts to stick. And evfurrything is moving in s-l-o-w m-o-t-i-o-n.

We've heard that nofur can add to or rearrange their photos, so we're not even trying that. Some of our pals can't see the Barkdays or Diary Central. Some can't get into their groups. Some can't send or receive pawmail. Some still can't get into Dogster at all! It all makes us furry sad.

BUT... Lori at HQ says she is going to have FURRY Good News fur all of us FURRY soon!!!! "Soon" takes longer fur hoomans, but we're still excited!! If you're reading my diary, thanks fur being part of the Few, the Proud, the Dogster Faithful!!
