I love my new home. I have a pesky little brother but it's OK cause I do like to play with him sometimes. I love my boy. He is so cool and he loves me. I sleep with him. I have an awesome family and I am so happy.
Lasy Saturday I got a BIG surprise. I was hanging out in the back yard with my brother (Biscuit)and our live in house keeper. I heard my mommy's voice. I was so excited and so happy to see her. She stopped by to give my new family my eye med. I jumped up on her and she picked me up and held me and I was so happy. I didn't realize how much I missed her. The house keeper told mom she had never seen me so excited. I thought mom was going to cry. I think that made her sad. I ran around to show her I am happy and I jumped again and she picked me up and cuddled me. Then I went inside with Biscuit and Miss housekeeper and when I came out mom was gone. She didn't want me to see her leave....She was sad. She misses me. I know because dogs know these things. I hope she knows I still love her.

I heard my new mom on the phone with my foster mom. She said she thinks I am the easiest dog she has ever had. Said "He's very low maintenance", whatever that means. She told her that I slept with my boy last night and I didn't get out of bed and roam the house....of course not! New mom said I was such a good dog. I liked going for walks with my new little brother. Biscuit thinks I am the leader. I like the food here and the big yard is so fun. There are plants and trees and new smells. I heard my new mom said "I can't imagine Payton doing anything that would cause me not to finalize the adoption on Saturday." I think that means I have a forever home....I have a family that belongs to me. I am so happy. Life is good! Thanks ARF-LA for helping me. Being a rescue is a good thing. Mom will take pictures Saturday and let all my Dogster pals know how it goes Saturday. Tomorrow she brings Oscar to his new home. Poor mom. It's gonna be a double whammy for her. Be brave mom.

Mom gave me the Talk this morning. You know the one. Bella told me she would and she said I should listen to mom cause it's serious. I listened real close. She said She and dad love me very much and we will always have a special bond between us. She said they think I am so special and a wonderful dog and that as she has said before, I did nothing to deserve being abandoned as I was. Mom said I must never feel they are ababdoning me now. What they are doing is giving me the final part of their gift to me. The part where I move on to the home I will have for the rest of my life. She said these past weeks with me have been so nice and they were very happy to have me here and so glad they could help me. She said I should always remember to be respectful. In my new home I should always be respectful of my humans, my home, yard and the things they give me. She said I just need to be myself because I am such a good boy that they are going to fall in love with me. She brushed me all over and she and dad hugged me tight and we went for a ride.
It's beautiful! My kids were still at school but I'll be here to greet them when they come in. My new house is huge and beautiful. It's real fancy and my new mom is just as sweet as she was when she met me at Petco. I met my brother. He's a Chihuahua and his name is Biscuit. He's OK. He kind of follows me like I am the leader or something. My new yard is just awesome. Lots of space to run and pretty plants and a big stone patio. It's great. My 2 mom's and my dad talked and I saw papers being exchanged and them my new mom asked me to go out and play with her and Biscuit. I knew my mom and dad were leaving and they didn't want me to see them go. It's OK cause we said our good byes already. I know they love me and I am thankful to them and ARF-LA for saving my life and giving me a great future. I know another dog will be taking my place, sleeping in my crate and on the bed by dad's feet very soon. I think that's the way it should be after all I took another dogs place.
