Whew, puff, puff! Moving is really hard work! Our new condo is at the end of the hallway from the elevator. I must have followed Mom back and forth a hundred times moving stuff in. She told me to wait in the condo but no way was I going to let her do all that without me! We've slept here three nights now and it's going pretty well, but Mom hasn't had a lot of time to play bunny with me - although she did stop at the pet store to get me a new one because my old one lost two of his feet.

Mom says I'm being a really good boy. I haven't been needy or barked or anything, except when she was trying to put together some metal shelves and was making an awful lot of noise. There were crashes and clanking going on and I got pretty nervous and wanted to sit on her lap, but she said, "Oh, Patch, I just can't have you on my lap right now - I've got to get this done." I brought her my bunny and everything, but - except for giving it a little toss - she wouldn't pay any attention to me. Later she was taking her clothes out of a suitcase and hanging them up in the closet. I tried to be a little harder to ignore so I curled up in the suitcase - that got her attention. She said, "Oh, Patch, you're so funny!"

She did tell me that I'm doing a really good job of peeing on the pee pad, though. Except for that one time... Dang! I thought for sure that was a pee pad. It was the same color as a pee pad. How's a guy to know?

I have a little tiny balcony - just dog-sized. I like watching all the people down below going about their business. At our old house there was never anything to watch. This place might work out... we'll see.

Hey Patch, Sounds like your move went well and you're settling in. That balcony sounds like it could be a great way to spend summer afternoons. You could drop some old toys and see what happens. BOL! Hope your mom has more time to play bunny with you. That bunny withdrawal is brutal. Teddy and Casey
