Arrival Story: Well, my father works as a firefighter and one of his collegues spotted him behind the fire station. This woman runs a Greyhound Rescue so she'll take in any dog. They went up to the little stray (Sparky) and he was extremely aggressive. One of the other firefigters actually had to put on the fire gloves to catch him. The woman took Sparky to the vet and when he got his shots, she brought him to my dads house where I was for the weekend. When I saw him, I fell in love imediatly. He was dirty and had fleas and ticks all over him. I was told to take him outside, get all of the ticks off and then give him a bath. I did as I was told with no remorse. I wanted him so bad. They said they were going to look for the owners and asked if my dad could keep him for a few days. I talked Mrs. Britt into letting him stay at our apartment. After that, they couldn't find the owner so I got to keep him. Ever since then, he has been my constant companion. I love him soooo much!
So, my bug bites have healed nicely. Turns out that mommy was right! They were just minor Mayfly bites. But guess what?! The best thing ever has happened! Sophia has moved in! Bubba didn't have the time to give her all the care she needed so mommy said that she would take her! I love this! We play almost none stop and she's already made friends at our apartment! We do everything together. I will post some pictures of us soon. I think you all will like her. Mommy is about to go give both of us a bath. We're just sittin' here on the couch with mommy watching a scary movie. Jeeper Creepers 2! Well, time for our baths. Oh! and mommy will be making a page for Sophia soon as well! I can't wait!
Okay so mommy and I did everything she said we were gonna do on our day out together. But, sadly, I have to go to the vet tomorrow.. We went walking through some fields by a stream and I got bit by something. Mommy said she thinks it may have just been a Mayfly but she said she doesn't want to take any chances. I'm glad she doesn't either. This stuff is kinda itchy. She made an appointment for 9:00 a.m. as soon as the doors open. That's my mommy! I've been kind of shakey too.. Mommy cuddled me up in her blanket and is lying with my on the bed. I love sleeping with her. I always cuddle up behind her legs or up around her shoulder and neck. Mostly around her shoulder though. I'm really sleepy so I'm gonna hit the hay. Goodnight Dogster and all of my pup pals! Wish me luck at the vet and pray it's nothing too serious!
Gosh a lot has gone on since the last time I've been on Dogster! Mommy and I have moved to a new apartment! We decided to upgrade to a two bedroom apartment so mommy could operate her own business and have an office. It's on the third floor too! I quite like the height. This new apartment has more room for me to run around too! Another thing is, Sophia comes over every single day! Mommy doggysits now too! She takes us to her training classes and also when she goes to her grooming jobs! We usually keep to ourselves unless the other dog(s) want to play. Mommy said there is a chance that she may end up adopting a little puppy! I may get a new brother or sister! But it hasn't been all good.. Mommy's been kind of sickish lately. She's been having severe pain on her right side. But she doesn't complaine. She said that tomorrow is gonna be a day just for me and her. She said we were gonna get up and take our usual walk. Then when Petsmart opens, we're gonna go there and get me some treats and maybe a few toys. After that, we're gonna go to the bark park and meet up with Baxter and Pixie! When we leave the bark park, she said we may go to the lake if it isn't too chilly. If it is too cold, she said we would go on a hike through the woods at the Stones River Battlefield. I can't wait. I love the days when it's just mommy and I. Well, it's almost eleven o'clock so I'm gonna snuggle up to mommy and go to sleep. Hopefully, I'll post again tomorrow! Goodbye and Goodnight dogster!
