My New Forever Home

It has been quite a week for me. Last Sunday this nice boss man and boss lady met the intakes person from Col Potter and then drove me to their house. They seemed ok, but I have had so many changes in my life in the past few months, I was really scared. The boss man walked me Monday afternoon and he wanted me to go one way and I wanted to go the other, and I slipped right out of my harness and took off running. I was so scared to get too close, but I didn't run off far. They turned their porch light on Monday night and left some water and salmon on the porch for me. I came back and ate that but I wouldn't get close enough for them to bring me to safety. Over the next 30 hours I came back several times, never close enough to be brought to warmth and safety though. So, finally someone suggested a live trap and load it down with foods I just couldn't resist. So, the boss man and lady did that, and I went for the food. They could bring in to warmth and safety again. Now when I go outside I have a leash on my collar and one on my harness that is also hooked around my collar. These people love me and they have adopted me!! So, I have a forever home and two angel siblings to watch over me. I think I'm a pretty luck girl.



My First Cairn Zoom

I showed mommy and daddy what a Cairn "zoom" is this evening. Mommy threw my little green Kentucky basketball, and boy, did I zoom!! We did this a several times before I sat and chewed on the ball.

Mommy and Daddy baby gate me in the bedroom/bathroom area when they leave the house, and I was scared of the gate because it reminded me of my wire cage at the puppy mill. So, Daddy covered the gate with a blanket, and now while I may not be happy with being gated to that area, I'm not so scared.

I also told Mommy and Daddy I needed to go outside tonight after dinner and they took me for a nice little walk.

All in all, it seems that my life with this boss man and boss lady might be a pretty good one.

Well, I have discovered some very large dogs in the pasture that faces our back window in the living room. I perched on the arm of the couch to look out that window and saw these large creatures. I looked very carefully, and they are the LARGEST doggies I have ever seen in my whole life. I growled at them first, and then Daddy heard the first "woof" I have barked since I have been a member of the family.

Daddy laughed and told me those aren't doggies, those are cows? What are those things?

I found I can bark, well, more a soft "woof" according to my dad. I was digging for whatever I could find in our yard/pasture and Daddy heard a very soft "woof'" coming from my direction. They had never heard me bark before!!

I am loving my walks around the pasture/yard, and it's good for me, too, getting the exercise.

And, I am learning every day more and more that these humans love me and they will never hurt me.

Last night my daddy started a fire in our fireplace. I have never seen something like that before, and I felt the need to protect my family. I "woofed" and and I growled at the flames and told them that they are not allowed to hurt my family. Then I settled down for a nap, only to be awakened by the log breaking in half, and I had to tell it a thing or two with some soft little "woofs". I stared at the fireplace and the flames and eventually they lulled me back to sleep.

I am such a good dog, and such a big protector!



Christmas with Cassie

This was my first Christmas not in a puppymill. WOW, what a difference a year makes! I got lots of new squeaky toys, a lovely cairn size blankie from some sweet volunteers at Col Potter, and was warm and clean and had plenty of food and clean water this year.

We went to my Grand-ma's house, and I wasn't too sure about her, she wanted to pet me, but I always looked at mommy or daddy first, and they let me know she was ok, and I would let her pet me.

I wasn't crazy about the car ride to and from, but eventually I realized that I would still be with mommy and daddy when the car stopped and I settled down and napped on Daddy's lap.

Hope everydog and their family had a merry Christmas!!



It's New Year's Eve

This is my first New Year's Eve in my forever home. These hoomans certainly seem to love me a lot, and I know I love them a lot, too.

I now trust them enough to roll over for tummy rubs and I come to them without cowering down, love my walkies with daddy, and all the love attention I get.

I am so grateful to have a forever home that loves me, thank you Angels Max and Impy for showing me the way here.

Happy new year to all my pup friends!!

As days go by I am getting more and more brave. Daddy and I take long walks around the property and I am finding more and more interesting things to sniff and dig for! We take hour long walks and I am still ready to keep going but Daddy is ready to come in for a rest!

I am just such a good girl, and I am a joy to my new mommy and daddy and they tell me that I am helping heal the holes in their hearts from losing my angel brother and sister, Max and Impy.



I Love to Hunt

My daddy takes me for long walks out on our land, and I sniff and dig and sniff and dig and dig and sniff! I don't know what I'd do with a varmint if I would actually catch something, but I bet I'd figure it out. Daddy and I have such a good time.

When I came to mommy and daddy they were told I was scared of men. HUH???? I think my daddy is just the best!! I love my mommy, too, don't get me wrong, but someone was sure wrong about me not liking men, at least I love my daddy!!

Better go, it's time to see if I can get daddy to take me outside again.

I have a confession, I HATE thunder. It can be miles and miles away, but my cairn ears hear it, and I start shaking and panting and running in circles.

Mommy and Daddy hate to see me so upset, and the bought some herbal drops that were supposed to help me with my panic. They helped some, but I still shake and pant and run in circles.

I am a puppy mill girl, and Mommy and Daddy wonder what might be in my past that makes me so scared of the thunder, like maybe lightening could have hit the 'shelter' where I was housed or something.

They say they might talk to Dr. Anderson about getting me a mild tranquilizer for these thunderstorm days cause SE TX has lots of those in the springtime.

Other than the thunderstorms this weekend, I am doing great, I am play bowing when I want Mommy/Daddy to play with me, playing fetch with my stuffee toys, eating well, rolling over for tummy rubs, putting my paws on Mommy/Daddy's knees when I want some lovings or to go outside.

I am finding out how good life can be for a "corn" doggie!
