Hello! I'm the Noodle Doodle. I am a hyper and springy 2 year old. The vet said that I have a long-legged Jack Russell body, a Spitz tail and a border collie head. I'm a 'mutt', but mommy and daddy make me feel special. I have to compete for attention, like the others but that makes it fun. I am full of surprises. You never know when I am going to jump up on you.
Here I am, new too the family. My new grandma is hugging on me. I don't like to be held down because I am independent. I'm the Noodle Doodle. I was about 5 months old when someone dumped me in a house division that so happens that my new family lived in. I was scratching on a door of a house on a corner that I find out no one was home, when I see this big pick-up drive by me and go up this hill. I decided to follow. Maybe they had food. This big ol' man gets out of the pick-up and starts talking to me. He calls mom on the phone and she comes outside. Mama didn't have the heart to take me to the pound. So, I got a new home and family.
I have a big brother. He's good to me and watches out for me, in case mom and dad forget that I am outside. He lets them know its time for me to come in. We are in/out dogs. We do have a tendency to want the very same bone or toy, though. That drives mom and dad crazy, but we get through it. Pepper and I wrestle a lot. We also play 'tug-o-war', that is Pepper's favorite game and I am getting stronger to beat him, some times, though he is twice my weight.
I sleep wherever I want to. Mostly I sleep next to daddy's legs at night. I'm precious, don't you think? I sleep a lot because I use up so much energy. I eat as much as my brother, but the doctor says that I am still underweight. I'm busy..busy..busy.
I'm a digger. I hunt for grubs and crunch them to bits. I love to dig holes and I love to run. Most of all, I love to go for walks whenever mom or dad take me. We don't go enough. See my dirty nose? I was digging and rooting again.
I'm very photogenic. Sometimes I look very distinguish, sometimes, just cute. Mama doesn't know how to classify me. She says that I root like a pig, climb like a mountain goat, sit on my behind like a human and jump like a cat. My biggest pet peeve is water. Well, water as in a bath or a pool. I don't mind staying out in rain looking for grubs.
Well, that is some about me. It's time to go get a treat now. I like the big milk bones that my brother gets. Yum..yum....
