My name is Lucky! Lots of pups on Dogster know my angel sister, Dorothy dot Louise so I know I will make lots of fun friends here, too.
I came from the animal shelter. This is what happened.
I used to belong to a pretty good family. We had a nice house and a yard and a kid. I went to dog school where I learned how to behave. But, I did like to run. I liked to chase squirrels. One day, I chased a squirrel far and wide and I got lost. I tried to find my way back home but I just got even more lost. Finally the nice people from the animal shelter picked me up.
I was all matted and dirty and a little hungry. Although, I did figure out how to knock over garbage cans and eat the very best people food ever-leftover takeout!
The animal shelter people cleaned me up and took good care of me. They took my picture and put it in the paper and put it on the web page, but my family didn't come.
Lots of other doggie and kitties got families, but not me. I knew it was because I was soo quiet. None of the people noticed me. See, I don't know how to bark. I used to wear a collar that hurt me everytime I barked so now I don't bark.
I was about to loose hope when I had this dream. I dreamt this big, fat, happy, dalmation came into my pen. She looked around and said: "Gee, it's been a while since I've been here."
Me: "You've been here before?"
Dog: "I was here a long time ago. Now I am at the bridge. I'm here to tell you that tomorrow, you are going to go to the best family ever! So get ready."
The next morning, I waited and waited. People came and went. Doggies came and went. Then this funny looking couple came in. They looked at all the dogs. They checked me out too. But they moved on. Suddenly, that big fat dalmation that I dreamed about rushed through the shelter. All the doggies barked at the dream/ghost dog. All the doggies but me. That's when the lady said: " Honey, this doggie didn't bark." The man said: "Well, that's the dog for me." And I was adopted.
I am still trying to get used to my new family. They were surprised at how well mannered I was. I was surprised at how casual they were. If I want to sit on the couch or the bed, that's fine. I think there feelings are hurt if I choose to sit on the floor.
I still have tons to report. But, I think tonight is a doggies favorite holiday. Trick-or-treat. The lady, my new mama, keeps trying on goofy outfits on me. As long as I can get some take out from it, I don't care.
I'm so happy to be on dogster and I will be taking all pup pal requests.
