Hi! Now that I've settled into my new home over the past two months, I'm ready to share my adventures with the world . . .
The trip home to the New Hampshire Seacoast from Vermont was an adventure all its own. During the 2 and 1/2 hour trip, I washed the driver human's face several times, helped to drive by putting the car in neutral for them, and otherwise kept the humans amused. I've established my place at the foot of the bed, although I also tend to take up one-half at the top if I think I can get it.
I played shy at first, to the point where the humans were very excited because they "taught" me to play fetch. Heh heh, soon I had them tossing toys all over the house for an hour at a time.
Although I've maintained my excellent leash manners in most situations, I am a Sheltie . . . and I protect my entire neighborhood by making sure no human passes by without getting barked at.
Seriously, though, life is so much better as the only animal, after having lived with 13 cats and moving to two different shelters in one month.
I have had two visits to my new vet, met my extended family and his human, and played in the dog park a few times. I'm now in training to teach the humans to click-and-treat on cue. For some reason they do this more often when I finish sounding the alarm -- excuse me, sorry about that, someone passed by the window -- as I was saying, for some reason the humans seem intent on interrupting my very useful barking.
When will they ever learn?
