Hi, I'm Dallas...

I was born on August 24, 2007 in Oklahoma. I was bought as a surprise birthday gift for my dad from my mom! Boy, was I a surprise!!! I flew out of Dallas Fort Worth, TX and arrived at Ontario, CA on November 3, 2007 - it was a my first time flying. I was picked up by my mom and her friends Kelley Harrison and her boyfriend Shawn at the airport. They brought me over to Kelley's house in Canyon Lake and called my dad to come over for lunch. I was playing with my first California friends, Ginger and Roxy - they were like giants to me, but they were nice! Finally, my dad came and he was shocked to see me and couldn't believe his eyes! He was very surprised to have me and loved me from the minute he saw me.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my First Birthday! I think my dad is making a peanut butter carrot cake for me (thanks Preston!). I also smell some new toys! Hopefully they take pictures of my special day.

Dog Beach - Huntington Beach - August 3, 2008


On the way to the Dog Beach!


Other dogs checking me out!


Look at all the dogs and people!


Me on the way home - pooped!


Mom having to go get me because I was getting kinda far from them!


Really wet and running fast!


Me with dad on the beach.


Boy did I like the sand, it was everywhere!

This was my first trip to a Beach - Dog Beach in Huntington Beach. I met my friends Roxy & Ginger and their parents Kelley and Shawn there. I had a good time and met three other puggles and played with them for a little while (see video). I saw sooo many other dogs and people! I liked the sand and all the people and dogs, but I didn't care for the water/ocean too much! My dad took me in with him and held me while the water CRASHED on me! He even let me go and I had to swim for dear life about 5 feet until the safety of the beach! Maybe next time I'll try it again and get used to it! Here is a video and some pictures from the day!

New Bed!!!






Sorry I haven't blogged in a week or so, my dad's been in San Diego for the past few days - I sure did miss him! But, I did get to spend more time with mom, we are bonding more these days!

Well, I got a present from my Grandma & Grandpa Ross - a brand new bed to lay in. I still sleep in my crate at night. This is for the living room, I don't really get it though, I like to sit on the couch with my parents?!?! But, I do like it and do hang out in it once a while. I'm still getting used to it!

Fourth of July 2008







We went to San Clemente for the 4th of July! It was one of my first public outings (other than the dog park and family members) and first time near the beach! We stayed with my parents goods friends, the McCoy family (Jim, Kasey, Ava, Cade, Diggs, and Dashes). Diggs and Dashes really didn't like me staying at their house and barked at me and even bit my legs a little! I was fine, I just minded my own business and still had fun. I also got to meet one of my dad's oldest and best friends - Heather Mann. She was nice to me , and so was her boyfriend Louis. We ate breakfast near the pier in San Clemente. I was very well behaved and made my parents happy and I think they'll take me with them more now!!!

My First Night Home and More



I remember my first night in my new home, I was kinda scared, so my dad sleep with me on the floor and then I felt safe and slept the night away. After a couple nights, I started sleeping in my crate (which I still do every night, but I do have a bigger crate now). I've been in Murrieta for about ten months now. My parents seem to work a lot and leave me at home most of the day. I stay in my crate in the guest bathroom and when they come home they let me out to stretch my legs! They also take me to the dog park in Menifee - I REALLY LOVE THE DOG PARK!!! I meet many new dogs every time, we run, play and the best is when they chase me around! Recently, I just graduated from my first dog class - I learned these commands/actions - sit, down, off, heel, come, take it, leave it, and shake. I still need to practice stay and drop it! I do hear the word wrong and since I don't like that word always, I tell my parents want I think about it! That's an introduction to me, my family, and my life. I'll have to catch you up on things from the past year on this blog ove the next couple weeks - I have pictures and videos that my parents take of me, too! I hope you enjoys reading about me and continue to follow it as long as I keep this thing up...
