Old Habits Die Hard

My FF feels like they won the lottery by finding me because they say I'm so weet and well-behaved (I try!) but sometimes I feel like I won the lottery by ending up with them. I get really good food and treats (even bits of filet against that evil Dr. Miller's advice!), 2 dog beds, 3 human beds and lots of love and belly rubs. But sometimes it's hard to forget where I came from. For example, I love these bully sticks that my FF gives me. I try not to eat them all at once, but I can't help myself! And then when I'm down to the very end, I start to worry that maybe, like back during my time on the street, someone will try to take it away. Or maybe I'll never get another one again. So I take that little end nub and start looking for places to hide it. Apparently under the couch cushions is not a great place because somebody always finds it and gives it back to me. Maybe I need to find a better hiding spot. Or maybe I should realize that I don't have to save and hide my food anymore!

I also remember being lonely a lot. I'm not so lonely anymore, but sometimes when my people are out, I try to find something that smells like them (slippers, the kids' stuffed animals) and I'll hold on to them and lick them. No chewing, just licking! But I'll also have to try and remember that my people always come back to me.
