Arrival Story:
Hi I'm Coltrane! I was in a pretty bad condition when I was found by a nice person and taken to the local shelter, where I was fixed up and neutered, then went through several homes before my furever mommy and daddy adopted me. They had been wanting to rescue one of my kind for awhile but not having much luck until they heard about me. They had to drive 1.5 hours to meet me, and fell in love with me at first sight and brought me home right away! I have my own beds, dishes, toys, a big backyard, plus, two kitties to take care of. So far I've gotten lots of pets, presents and visitors - I've even gone camping and to several cookouts! I am a very happy fella!

I got to pick my own name! I chose Coltrane because it sounded like a fine name to me. Mom and Dad say I'm smooth and easy-going like jazz music, and sound like a freight train when I pant. :) Read my diary for more details about my new life!

My Job::
One of my best friends besides Mom and Dad is a man named Shane. He is the one who found out about me for Mom and Dad and brought them to meet me. He evaluated my behavior and proclaimed me to be a fine dog, and is going to start training me soon, because I need to pass Basic Obedience before I can become a therapy dog - my dream job!

I'm funny

Guess what - I learned Lay Down! FINally! It's really hard for me to "get" things sometimes when there's foodz involved. It's like, I know it's mine, gimme it already! But no we must play silly games. But Lay Down is easy; I thought they wanted me to do something harder!

Mom thinks it's funny when we work on tricks, because my wee-wee pokes out. I just get really excited about foodz!

I've been making Mom and Dad laugh a lot lately. I discovered family love recently - that's where Mom and Dad are kissing and hugging, and then I insert myself between them and we all kiss and love each other. Mom says I'm starting to get more kisses than Dad, so Dad said he would have to give me more kisses then. They say my head is so soft and spongy and kissable. Last night they gave me a new nickname: Spongehead Squarebutt. They burst into giggles every time they say it, and Mom has even started singing it to a cute tune. It starts like this: "Ohooooo whooo lives in a bungalow far from the sea? Spongehead Squarebutt!" She says she's working on more lyrics.

These are a few of my favorite things

Hi diary palz! Not a lot of new things for me this week. Mom says we need to quit being lazy and start my real training. 

I've been with Mom and Dad for a little over a month now, and here are my top 5 favorite things so far:

1. My most favorite thing in the world is going for a walk. I love walking so much! Even after a long walk, when I'm tired, I still want to go on another walk.
2. My second most favorite thing is riding in the car. Particularly in the back of our SUV - I can stretch out and have lots of windows. Sometimes when we get back from a ride, I don't want to get out!
3. Number three is getting a ham bone. I love slurping the leftover bits of meat and digging out the marrow. Nom nom! 
4. Dad coming home from work. It's my favorite time of day because I miss him so much and I love having Mom and Dad together. He always plays with me and loves me hard and Mom joins in too. I bounce all around between them with my tail swishing and a giant goofy smile on my face - I can't help it!
5. My last biggest favorite thing is brushingz.  My brushes live in a basket and when Mom pulls out that basket every day, I start to melt. Brushingz feel soooo good!

Of course, there are other little things in life that I love too: dozing on the porch in the wee hours of the morning when it's cool, getting bits of food for tricks, having my eyes cleaned by Mom, and I always feel SO good after I make poopz. Haha!


Car rides rock!

What have I been up to? 

Well, Sunday I went on a super long walk with Mom and Dad to get our cars. Then, Dad took me on a super long car ride to his sister's house to celebrate his niece's birthday. She was a nice little girl and petted me lots! Everyone loved me and there were LOTS of other dogs. But they all stayed outside or in the bedroom. That was fine with me because some of them growled at me and seemed a bit antisocial! I was happy to hang out with the people and food.

Then Monday, Mom took me to her work meeting at a restaurant. We sat outside with a lot of other girls and a couple of other dogs. I already knew Happy - I like her! But I got to meet Auntie Colleen's dog, Africa. She was really laid back like me - I like her too. 

Finally, yesterday Mom took me with her on work errands. I got to meet some other nice people she works with, we took long rides in the car, we took potty walks in strange places, and I got to eat French fries. I was having such a good time, that when we finally got home, I didn't want to get out of the car! Mom sent Dad a picture of me, and he laughed and said "portable crate." Mom said, "world's most expensive!"
