Brother Andrew- Hey! Here's a classic snapshot I took of Gabster on the trampoline. I highly recommend printing it, framing it, and hanging it up in your living room.

Every Day is a GREAT Day!

See this dog jumping?  This is how I wake up every day.  It's light out, and guess what?  I'm rearing to go out for my morning walk.  I don't know what day it is; I don't know what time it is - I just know that it's light outside.  That means - WAKE UP AND TAKE ME FOR MY WALK!

This morning I meandered over to my mom's bed; she was not as happy to see me as I was to see her.  She was mumbling something about it being Saturday....only 5:33.  Then she told me to go say hi to my Dad - humph - that took one second.  Then she told me to go look for bunnies, but hey, I can see out the window while I'm standing over her wondering why she's not hopping out of bed.

Well, needless to say, I am a very persistent dog, and she finalllllly got up.  I mean what's the big deal?  I know you'll agree:


 P.S.  This is what I say:  It's a ruff life; you gotta be tuff; and the tuff get going even if it's ruff going.

Super Sunday So Far!

What a proud dog I am!  I love to be in front of my house keeping track of everything that goes on in my neighborhood.  I'm the neighborhood watch dog which is an especially important job after the recent Boston Marathon events.  I will continue to serve proudly as a watchdog - as long as no cats come along - I'm afraid of them.

Today I went to the dog park.  I just love wandering around and smelling everything.  I even ate some grass.  Other than that, I've been on the front lawn basking in the sun.  I have the BEST life ever!  I love being a dog!

Welcome to Gabi's New Dog Blog!

My tail is wagging furiously.  I am so excited that you are reading my Dog Blog.  My name is Gabi, and I'm a proud and loyal dog who lives in Wakefield, MA. 
Originally, I was a rescue dog who was taken away from my original family by the Dog Officer.  The Dog Officer forgot to ask what my name or birthday were.  After that, I lived at the VCA Animal Hospital in Wakefield where I lived in a crate most of the time.   On the weekends, kind employees would take me to live at their homes.

The dog officer thought that my original owner called me "Gabe."  Consequently, one of the technicians decided to name me Gabriela - a most beautiful name, I must admit.  My new family shortened my name to Gabi and decided my birthday should be October 31st since I'm a big, black dog.  On my next birthday, I'll be six dog years old.

My favorite activities include eating, laying in the sun in front of my house, walking, and jumping up and down when the bunny appears at the back sliding door.  I also love to jump on people - more about that later.

It's time for me to go to the park.
