About me, Rusty!

after3.jpgI am a great little dog who lives with his human mom and dad in Texas. My job is to keep the backyard a squirrel free zone. That’s a hard job, they just won’t listen to me. I want to talk about my life and make friends! Read my first post to know more about me.

As of April the 2nd, 2008 I was two years old. I’ve had many adventures this year. I got to see and chase ducks, I met my human nephew and chased him. He chased me too. I made a LOT of bloggie friends. I’ve been camping in mom and dad’s camper and in a cabin at Robbers Cave State Park in Oklahoma. I even climbed up rocks to go to the cave. It’s been a great year!

On Oct. 4, 2008 I got a new baby brother named Riley. So far he is a mess and I’m not really sure mom made a good dedcision in getting him. We’ll see.

  1. my dog cody bear is responsible for making sure we’re free of squirrels as well. a very important job.

  2. What a cutie Rusty is!

    Not sure how I feel about the squirrel chasin’ tho. I just spent all autumn journaling the progress of the squirrel pups in my poplar tree! (Sooo cute! And hilarious!)

  3. Okay. True confession. If I was a dog, I’d chase ’em too. Looks like fun!

  15. Hi Rusty,

    You look just like me dog Skeeter…cuite!!!
    What a fabulous website!!! I love looking at all the pics from your daily adventures. It looks like you are a very busy super pup!!!

    While I was on the blog searching through the site I thought I would introduce myself to you. I’m the editor for Dog Fence DIY LLC, and was wondering if you’d like a exclusive guest post in exchange for a link to our site. I was not sure if you took guest posts but I thought I would ask and see?
    Here is my website for you to view.


    I thought maybe your readers would enjoy an exclusive piece on choosing a ball for your pup. Our staff Veterinarian, Dr. Susan Wright writes for us to help get important dog information out there to help our furry friend owners be better informed and prepared with their pet. Alternatively, if you prefer another topic just let me know and we can write something else. I also have some other exclusive article topics that I can send you to view as well.

  16. Hello,
    I found your site though Google as it is related to my own Pets site. I wanted to ask if you would be interested in a link exchange as I have a blog related to cats, http://www.thecatsblog.com

    I have been swapping links for while now and have found it very beneficial to search engine rankings for everyone. If you are interested please add my link details and mail me back and I will add your link in the blogroll section of my site asap.

    Here is my details:

    Thank you very much for your time and consideration on this matter and waiting for your positive reply.

    On behalf of Dogster.com, we’d like to give you our Top Dog blogger award!

    If you accept, just shoot me an email at nam(at)dogster.com!!!


  18. rusty has very good story to share while i think the story and caring story of baby dogs and his parents.

  19. Hi, Rusty (and human momma)! Your brother-in-law, Carl, told me I should look at this wekbsite! Too cute! I had a “large” yorkie, Skeeter, for 8 years until he passed away during routine dental surgery (too much medication). I was heartbroken. I now have 3 doggie friends – Pearl (Rottweiller), Cowboy (English Bulldog), and Shadow (Snoopy-looking mutt). They’re all rescues and I just love, love, love all the dog stories and pictures. Thanks for brightening my day!

  20. I produce a dog video conversation and would like to know if you would post it on you blog. We have some great people involved (Dr. Robyn Barbiers from Anti-Cruelty Society, Bernie Berlin from A Place to Bark, Amelia Glynn from SF Chronicle). If you are interested in contributing to the show as a panelist, I would love to speak with you regarding that as well.

    The title of our video is – ‘What is Your Dog Breed Bias?’

    The description is – ‘Is your childhood dog your favorite breed? Are you scared of pit bulls? Do you agree with the rest of America that the beagle is the best? Join our awesome team of dog bloggers in a conversation about your breed bias.’
