Arrival Story:
We got her from the rescue in Irvine, CA, apparently she was about 3 days from being euthanized because she was considered unadoptable. She had many conditions for adoption such as no other pets, no children and no men. But, she showed no fear of my husband and in fact nobody at the shelter could believe how she took to him, so they let us take her home for a trial run. She definitely needed work on socializing with other animals and with men in general. But with lots of love and patience, she turned into a wonderful loving dog.

Mom said my diary got picked by dogster for the home page. I am SO excited because I do most of my own writing. I tell Mom and she types it! I told all my dog friends and they were jealous, it's hard to be as cute and as good a writer as I am. .. so I understand! Well, gotta go, there are some men in our basement working and it's my job to lay at the closed door and snort through the bottom. They come out every now and then and I'm hoping for a treat. (I lick the door sometimes too, Mom calls me wierd when I do it but I just ignore her. . .maybe she should lick it and see it's not bad.)


What is snow???

I've never seen this white stuff before and Mom tried to make me go outside in it the other day. I thought at first I would never be able to pee outside again! But my sister Lucky taught me how to have fun in the snow and now I like it. We wrestle a lot in the snow but sometimes I fall off the deck. It's hard to tell where the edge is with all that snow. Another bad thing about snow is that the rabbits don't come out as much. It's hard to catch a rabbit when they stay under the deck all the time. But I will keep trying. Well, gotta go, I'm very tired from wrestling with Lucky and need a nap.


I love my new home and my new sister!

When Mommy and Daddy told me we were moving away and I had to leave my best friend Dagny I was very sad. The road trip to Colorado was long and I was very tired of being in my bed in the car. But once I got to my new home and saw my huge back yard, I didn't miss my little patio one bit. (Though I do miss Dagny a LOT!) Mommy and Daddy knew I was sad and lonely without any dog friends so they went and found one for me. I didn't know how I felt about Lucky at first because she's young and likes to pounce on me and hogs my people's attention. But, I showed her who was boss and who was here first and now we are friends. We wrestle a LOT, don't tell her but I get really tired sometimes, and Mommy tells me we are "GROSS!" after we wrestle. But I don't care, I'm just glad to have someone to play with again. Lucky does hog the bed that used to be all mine but I've learned how to sleep above my daddy's head on his pillows. I think he likes it because he looks at me and laughs when i do it.
So that's all for now, I need to go chase some rabbits and then take a nap.
