So.. today was black friday and I guess its supposed to be "the biggest shopping day of the year", so mom decided she was going to Petsmart to hit thier 50% off sale stuff and get me some new things.

She got me 2 really nice sweaters... boy colors...and then while dad was letting me watch the hampsters... it happened!! She stuck these goofy light up reindeer antlers on my head and jingle bells around my neck!! OMD!!!!!

Then, as if that wasnt bad enough.. she found me a pair of doggie jammies with snowmen all over them...Like how am I supposed to sleep in those? (sigh!)

Well... she told dad that I "HAD" to have them for when I go to get my picture taken with Santa....Who the heck is this Santa??? I hope he's not a vet!??

Today was pretty fun! I got to go for a ride in the car to the pet store. Mom took me to get a new collar and leash. She also found me a cute little yellow rain coat which I am really excited about. Its been raining alot here in Washington and I dont like to get wet when its cold!

I got to meet 3 other doxie friends while we were there. They were ALOT bigger than me, but they were all nice so it was fun! Mom also bought me some training treats and a new little tennis ball to play with.

I was kinda bored while she was shopping, so when she wasnt paying direct attention to me I barked my little fool head off to get her attention. She quickly figured out my shenanigans tho and decided she would ignore me and just let me bark. Hmpf...shes pretty smart! Im gonna have to find new ways to entertain myself when shes busy!!

The car ride was fun. I have a carseat that boosts me up so I can see out the window. Its pretty cool! I also feel very secure in there since I get strapped in for the ride.

We are home now, so Im gonna go curl up on the cat's blanket and take a nap.

Cio!

 

a pretty cool day...

My new dad is pretty cool. Ive figured out that his lap is pretty darn comfortable, maybe even more so than moms. He thinks its funny when I bark at mom when she tries to put my harness on for a walk. I just get so excited I cant help it!!

Im pretty excited for tomorrow. Mom said she was taking me shopping for a new raincoat, collar and leash. That means that we get to go to the petstore and that I might get her talked into buying me a new toy also!! I need some toys, I only have 1 right now and its only fun to play with if someone throws it for me.

 

How I found my new family....

Ive had it rough! I was taken to the Humane society with a back injury (a ruptured disk) after I was found as a stray. I had to have surgery and lucky for me a very nice vet agreed to donate the surgery for free. I was very scared!! Before I went in, I couldnt move my back legs at all. They were just floppy and didnt want to cooperate at all when I wanted to get around. Anyways, the nice vet fixed me up and while I dont move as fast as I used to, my back feels totally better and I can now walk on all 4's again with no trouble! Having the surgery will slow me down for the rest of my life, but I can still go for nice walks and get around so I am really happy I went throught with it!!

I spent a couple months in foster care, and was taken care of by a very nice veterinary student for a few months while I was healing up. She was very nice and gave me lots of love and attention but I couldnt stay with her permanently and was taken to the shelter once I was well enough to be adopted.

I was starting to get worried that nobody would want me since my sugery. I had been in the shelters care since mid July and I was praying all I could that my new mom would come rescue me in time for the holidays. I was getting scared that I wouldnt get any good pumpkin pie this year!!

Then, one day I was sittin in my bed when 2 nice ladies came up to my kennel. I was a little nervous but I wanted to appear friendly so I did what I thought best and barked at them. One of the ladies laughed at me and said "well, at least we know he barks!!" I thought I was home free but then they walked away and I went back to my bed.

A few moments later, one of the nice shelter volunteers came by and said someone wanted to meet me. She took me to a room and inside the 2 nice ladies were waiting for me. I wiggled and smiled at them and kissed their fingers. One of them talked about me to the volunteer and asked alot of questions about me. Things like "is he potty trained..would he do well with cats?" CATS?? oh..well.. I guess if they are nice I might like them, Ive lived with some before. The lady asking questions was really nice. I decided I liked her alot and that I wanted to sit on her lap, so I sat up pretty for her. She picked me up and let me sit on her lap and she was very nice! She massaged my ears and let me give her a couple face kisses, but I figured Id better not overdo it. I hadnt brushed my teeth and my breath smelled like baloney.

We visited for a while and then the lady told the volunteer that she had to "get permission" to take me home. Aparently she had to pay money to take me home but it wasnt alot of money! Im already neutered and the fee goes to pay for a new identification microchip, collar and I.D. tag, my shots, one month of pet insurance and a free vet exam.

The lady put a hold on me and brought in a man to meet me. I thought he was really cool and went straight to him. Little did I know that he would be the one who I needed to impress and get permission from, but he liked me alot and said they wanted to adopt me!! I WAS SO HAPPY!

Once I got home, I discovered that my family has 3 human kids (all teens) along with my mom and dad for me at home. They are just as nice!! The kids decided to change my name to Diego, which is ok with me. My old name Noodle was kinda silly.

I also now have 2 cat siblings. Charlie is pretty cool. He's black and white and has a mustache. I found out his favorite blanket is pretty cozy and nice to snuggle in on the couch. The other kitty, Nilla, is an orange tabby that looks nice but I havent gotten too close to her yet. Theres just something about her that tells me she wouldnt be to nice just yet, so I just ignore her for now.

My moms friend, the one that came with her to meet me for the first time, gave me a reallllly nice BIG bed that is super comfortable!! She has a girl dog my size named Penny and her and I are going to be great friends!!!

Im so excited that I found my forever family!!
