You may have noticed in my December 4th entry I planned to execute some tooth extractions on dear little Kiaya as she slept. Long story - I really don't want to talk about it. Suffice it to say the girl got the best of me and made me forget real quick my intentions. Details here would be embarrassing to say the least. I'll just say that I questioned my malehood for a couple days, and the pliers were locked back in the tool box.
OK.... so it's now been thirteen months since this little furball has made herself at home around here, and I don't see any sign of her packing up and leaving any time soon. In fact, I actually have become quite enamored of the little girl. Sometimes she walks right up to me and gives me a wet kiss.
As a result of time, I have finally accepted that she is one of us, and my humans are equally good to both of us, so I guess I have no reason to complain. We do have fun playing "keep away" with the deflated green soccer ball in the back yard, or running up and down the fence with our neighbor - a fine specimen of female dog named Molly.
Yes, I'm starting to slow down a bit and appreciate what I have. As I approach "middle age", I begin to reflect on my puppyhood and early years of vigor - not with sadness of what was, but with an appreciation of what I have done in the past, and how fortunate I have been. I have seen and done things that other dogs can only dream of. I can only wish you pups out there the very best. And if your humans should suddenly bring home a puppy, just accept it and move on. There will be some pain from needle-like teeth, a bit of competition for your basic treats, maybe even a challenge to your status in the pack that creates a little worry on your part. They may even get a page on Dogster!! Just take it all in, accept it, and know in your heart that the bigger the pack the merrier! Wishing you many happy chew bones my friends!!
