Name: Oregon Trail Mix (yes, we've decided that will be her full name...Oregon for short :)
Age: 1 year (approx.)
Breed: Pointer mixed with fireball (she's got LOADS of energy)
Birthday: February 14, 2009 (I got to pick the date)
Favorite activity: sneaking onto the Hopkins Lacrosse field at night and chasing after lacrosse balls; pursuing the occassional rabbit or squirrel
Favorite foods: Organic treats from Trader Joe's! (yes, they do exist.)
Virtues: Knows almost every command in the book (sit, stay, paw, down...)
Not-so-much virtues: she likes to jump on the couch when no one's looking; can destroy any toy you give her
Does anybody know of some "indestructible" toys on the market? I gave her a Nylabone yesterday and she's already wearing it down to the bitter end.
Any training tips out there for keeping a doggy off the couch? I'm not a fan of the whole, "slap her on the nose" or "smack her bottom" tactics. We're going for non-violent, especially since she's adopted and you never know if she'd been hurt in the past.
All-in-all, she's a sweetheart and loves to be loved!
