Ditto & Sheba

It's been over a week since I started this blog and I can't believe I haven't post anything about my loving, wonderful dogs.

The first one is Ditto Digsby (aka "monster boy, Ditto boy"), he is a mixed breed mutt that my husband's had for about 8yrs, so when we moved in together in 2007 he said to me that I own 49% and he owns 51% of him.

Ditto is a wonderful, loving, good guard, well trained and friendly dog but (and there's always a but...) he has a wild side. Looks like before my husband adopted him from the Humane Society he used to run wild and hunt chicken, iguanas and cats, so if you don't pay attention and he gets off the least he will run like the wind and chase everything he can. He's gotten lost a couple of times, but seems to come back with a still alive chicken that he brings back to redeem himself for the runaway.

In 2008 we took him to his first Cayman islands Humane Society Dog Show, and he proved us once again what a great boy he is, winning 3rd place on Best Personality and 1st place on the obstacle curse. Then in 2009 he got 3 place on best trick, way to go Ditto Boy!

We are the champions! 3rd place Best Personality

Ditto was the "king" of the house for many years, so it was little tough last year when we rescued/adopted our other dog Sheba (aka girly girl). For both of them to get used to living with each other was one thing, but for Ditto to learn how to share and cherish another animal sharing our affection and his territory!

Now, they are very happy living together and get alone great... tomorrow I will post a little about Sheba!

I remember when I brought home my second dog! I knew it would be rough for a little while but man it was REALLY rough. I'm just glad my dogs are friends now and really love each other. Its still one of my favorite things to sit and watch them wrestle and play together!

Yeah I know, for us it was rough too, got in a couple of nasty fights and my husband made the mistake of trying to stop it with his arm and got bitten (but not too bad)...

Mine do wrestle quite a bit as well and I got a great picture of them while they are at it, will post it tomorrow!
