Arrival Story: We were looking for a Border Collie mix and found him on a farm in WI. He had 1 black and white Brother, 1 Black and white Sister and then another Brown and white sister. His brother was already Gone when we got there but the two sisters were still there. I knew he was the one when he was the first one to run up and lay in my lap. His sisters were cute too but he was for me.
Bio: His Mom is a Cocker Spaniel and his Dad is a Border Collie.
Well Mom's high hopes of updating you daily has gone out the window but we will still try to come and say hi a few times a week.
What's been keeping us so busy?? Well...Spring is finally here! We have been planting flowers which i have course helped with.
We have been adding to my stick collection and I am head of inspections . Although it was a little rude of mom and dad to throw some of my good sticks into something they called a fire. I protested by trying to grab as many as possible that were in the pile they kept throwing in and dragging them off to a safe place.
I helped mom hang flowers on the front porch and yes at times the work was very tough and I had to take a minute to lay in the dirt to cool down.
Yep I am pretty sure mom and dad would be lost without me .
I also experienced a few firsts over the past weekend. On Friday night I was just relaxing when all of the sudden there were a ton of loud booms. I was so scared I was barking and hiding under the bed. Mom managed to get me out and gave me my kong toy stuffed with some goodies and then I was ok. She called the horrible noise Fireworks. Mom says 4th of july is coming and there is going to be more. Does anyone have any good advise for her to keep me comfortable during the fireworks season?
Also they had a few thunderstorms but I wasn't as scared during those. Usually just one or two barks.
Then mom got me started on Flea and tick medicines this weekend too. In MN so we don't need them all year long since its so cold. So I am all ready for the summer.
Since I was so small I got Tired very easily. It was a big world for a little guy so I took a lot of naps.. I learned about Sticks and how amazing they are and my kitty siblings started to except me more. Its still a work in progress but its getting better every day. As I grew I found Bigger sticks and continued to learn about Snow . I went on my first big Walk and went to the dog park for the first time. It was scary seeing all of those big dogs but I was a very brave boy. Everyone said I was so cute and I looked like a teddy bear.
I went to my first Easter and played with my doggie cousin sophie. As you can see it made me very tired. I got new Toys for fetching. Learned even more about Snow and then finally about Spring . I have collected many treasures along the way even in my short few months of age but I am most grateful for my family and my dogster friends I have made here. Thank you to all of you for making Dogster so much fun.
