Arrival Story:
Cocoa was from a litter of puppies who were born in the wild. A friend fostered the puppies after the puppies lost their natural mother at the young age of 4 weeks. We lost our 14 1/2 year old Dog Odie on the 15th and saw these puppies not long after on my friends facebook page. We instantly fell in love with these puppies and Cocoa.

My parents have said they trusted me for quite some time now. Sometimes they leave me out at night and let me sleep where ever, but they say I get up to early for summer. Mom stays home and kids are out for summer. Something about no alarm clock and me wanting to get up at 6:30 just is not working. I don't care, my crate is so comfy, I am always in there anyway when I need a break from my house.

Well, Saturday the kids were gone and parents had time to themselves. It was date night or something. So they left, left me my regular rawhides, stuffed kongs and dumped all my toys out like usual. I didn't want those this time, I wanted stuff I shouldn't have. I ate all kinds of things that I climbed on furniture to get. Mommy thinks she puppy proofs, but I can climb like those pesky cats can too!

Well, when parents got home, I wasn't so proud of myself. They were not happy at all. They put the items in my face and told me "no, and leave it!" And I just couldn't look at them. I knew I did wrong. I hope they forgive me. It was my first time. Mommy said I had to be crated now when she leaves for longer periods. I guess she was a little worried too cause I kinda pulled my crate apart too and she keeps a big blue sheet on there and I pulled that off and dragged it around. She said they went during my usual naptime and instead it looked like I had a party. I just missed them, that's all. ;(


I graduated!

Last Tuesday I completed puppy school. My instructor said I was her star pupil and she just loved me and was going to miss me. Mommy says she is going to miss going weekly and having real people to talk to about puppy stuff and sharing stories. I like being home, still not crazy about car rides, but I can deal with them.

I was sick again last week too. I had to go to the dreaded vets office. They muzzled my cute little face again and mommy wasn't happy and is considering a new vet. I don't blame her, I don't get why they muzzle me, I am just a baby! I got mad one time at them at 3 months because I was super sick and didn't want to be bothered by anyone. Since then, they just muzzle me. I really dislike the vet!

Other then that, we have been having a lot of fun. Lots of play time. the kids are home for summer and I get playmates all day.

Mommy has started leaving me out of crate at night....well sometimes. It isn't an every night thing, something about some days she wants to sleep until 8 and I like to get her up early. Shrugs....I have no idea what this time stuff is.

Oh well, I need to go dig some holes. Mommy says we might play some new games today she got from different members on here today. Hope they are fun. I have been learning hide and seek, where mommy tells the kids to hide and has me go find them.

Its been a few weeks since I wrote. Its been a busy few weeks for me. I have had lots of car rides and done great in them. I hoped right in, everyone clapped for me and I think the car isn't so bad; especially when the window is down all the way and I can hang my tongue out.

Last week I went to this familiar house. It smelled like somewhere I had been. I then realized when seeing the people where I was. Mommy brought me to see my foster mom and my brother. I don't know where my other brothers and sisters were though. Hmmm...... I had a blast though. We wrestled for four hours non stop. He was a lot bigger then me though. Guess I have some more growing to do so next time I can be bigger.

My school on Tuesday evenings is still fun. I do all these tricks now and listen pretty well. Last night I learned a new one. Mommy says "BANG" and I fall over dead. Not sure yet about this one, but I get a treat each time I fall over!

My kids are home everyday all day. I like it. I get to chew and run around and play all day. We have been walking at a new place and there are lots of people there for me to see. So far, life is good. :)
