A shout-out from ARNIE

We were browsing the site and thought I'd update you on Arnie's situation. Arnie was the camp Casanova, king of the hay bale hill. I'll let him tell you about his life now.....

Hi, this is Arnie. I've been in my forever home for 9 1/2 months now, and I love the routine here. I live with my owner and his roommate and her dog Kai, who's my best friend and helps teach me how to be a happy well-adjusted dog.Every morning after breakfast we drive to the beach for a long walk - I always know when it's time to go and bark my silly head off with excitement, racing to see who can get in the car first. I love to wade in the quiet harbor waves and dip my nose in and splash myself.

Crab is my favorite snack! During the day I cruise around the big garden and sleep in the sun. Sometimes we take a long drive and a long hike through the cool woods, with loads of new smells and time to dig.


Afternoons mean a walk on the bluffs, with lots of other dogs to meet and good smells. After watching my friend Kai I'm learning to be a lap dog, even though I'm kinda heavy.

I sleep in my owner's room, he doesn't mind my snoring! I still have a few fears, like stairs, but I'm so much better than I was, and have almost completely forgotten my life at Gabbs.

Sending loads of love to all my old Gabbs buddies, and all the people who helped get me where I am today.

Great to hear from you Arnie!!! Keep up at the great attitude!!
