Arrival Story: I took a chance when I saw his picture on an on-line animal shelter website. I wasn't sure about getting a puppy though... - WHAT? No poop on the carpet!!- It didn't take long to convince myself to give the shelter a call.
I was so disappointed to hear that the puppy already had an application in for him. I decided to go ahead and view his brothers and sisters though, since some of them were still available.
As it turned out, he and his six siblings were turned in at a couple of days old. They were destined for drowning, but a kind heart turned them all into the shelter. They all survived, thanks to his amazing foster-mom.
Just before viewing the pups, I learned that his application was rejected. I was so happy. Once I met him, I knew he was the one for me. I quickly put in my own application for him and brought him home on Dec 24th, despite my belief that I should never take a pet as a Christmas gift. It was a the most memorable Christmas ever.
Bio: I've been in touch with a couple of my siblings. They are both dogster members. Check them out. I met my brother Nixon one day at a local park! Emma is still with the foster-mom that raised all of us pups!
If you look on Emma's family section and click on Hope, you'll see her nursing many little critters... the litter of pups is my family! If you look close, you can see me... I'm the only one with this coloring!
Ok.. so I'm not much of a diary writin' dog, but there is something VERY strange that I must tell you all about. You see, my human and I went to the lake today... my favorite lake. It's called Long Lake. I just love to go there to run through the woods and swim in the water.
Well... I heard stories about a person that may or may not have walked on water once. I thought, what a silly human tale... because of course I KNOW that it is impossible to walk on water! At least I THOUGHT I knew this.
We were walkin' and talkin' through the woods, as usual.. when IT happened! My human just climbed right onto the lake. I protested... wailed and whimpered to get her to stop, but to no avail.
THEN, she started to try to convince ME to go out there! No barkin' way, I said... but she has a way of convincing me to do things when I am unsure. So eventually, I gave into her wishes and cautiously stepped on. My legs were slipping in all directions and I could see other dogs in the distance sliding around after sticks. Very bizarre!
I just thought I had to bark this tale, because I have to tell ya... I STILL don't know if I believe it!... maybe it was just a very strange dream!... Perhaps I'll verify this tomorrow....
