Arrival Story:
Tigger needed a home with one person and one dog, that's me!

The Tigster didn't get the best start in life, but fortunately he was rescued from an abusive home by a wonderful caring woman. Sadly, her other dogs didn't love him as much as she did, so she decided that it would be best for him to be in a home that had just one dog that he could bond with. Lucky me!!!!

Oh My...

I am very bad at this diary stuff. I have been way too busy to write though! My big brother Toby is teaching me alllll kinds of things, like not to be afraid of people, and that pet stores are fun, and how to shred dog beds and things that belong to mommy. Toby is a good brother. But he's not all that smart, not like me. He doesn't know not to try to chew things up in front of mommy, the big dummy! I'm helping him though. Here's how it works: when mommy leaves and goes to her "job," whatever that is, I knock down that stupid gate thingie she puts in the doorway of Toby and my room. She's silly, thinking we ought to stay in there all day. Anyway, I get us out of the room because Toby can't figure that part out, and then Toby shows me the things that are the most fun to chew on. Like photo albums! And pillows! Oh man, we did one the other day- it was on mom's bed- and man oh man it looked just like a blizzard in her bedroom!!! Hahaha, we had a blast!

I've been doing other things too. I went to a class for a couple of months. Dunno why those people think I should sit down when they tell me to... that's too hard so I lay down instead. I heard mom say that I was really going there to meet other dogs and friendly people. I guess the sitting part was just a distraction.

I've been going to the doctor a lot lately. First I had to go and my mom left me there, and I got soooooo sleepy... next thing I knew mom was there again and we went home. Whatever. That doctor lady is soooo nice! She gives me treats. I also heard her say something to mom about my hips, and ever since then mom's been giving me this stuff that tastes like oranges- it's yummy! She calls it glucosa-something, but I call it dessert!! YUMMY!!! Ya know, now that I think about it, my hips have been feeling pretty good lately!

Anyway, a few weeks ago I had to go to the doctor again because I had a kind of a rash. Now I have to take these gross pills. Yuck. But they are making the rash go away so that's good. Never woulda gotten the dumb rash in the first place if mom hadn't a put me in a stupid crate. That's stressful! I didn't like it at all! Not to mention I couldn't get out of the thing. I'm glad she puts me in a room with Toby now. Come to think of it, I better not bust us outa there too often, or she might put me back in that dang crate again!

Anyway, I get to go to see that nice doctor lady again pretty soon! Mom said as soon as I finish those yucky pills, I'm going to the doctor for a little snip-snip. What the heck is she talking about??!! I have no idea. Whatever. As long as I get treats it's OK with me :)


New Home, New Mom, New Brother!

I'm sooo excited! A week ago I moved to a new house and got a new mommy and a new big brother too! There are some other critters here, too... I think one is called a cat and the other ones look like mouses.... I think mom called them hamsters? Does that sound right?? I like ham, so I guess they're OK. Anyway, I like my new house and new mommy and new brother Toby, too! I liked my old mommy and daddy, but my other brother and sister didn't want to let me be part of their family. That's OK though, I think this new place is gonna work out!

I went to the doctor a couple of days ago. I was really scared and didn't want to go inside! Everyone was really nice though, and I let them pet me after I decided that they weren't going to hit me. I like the doctor lady a lot! She gave me lots of treats! She said I'm going to be OK, but I could have told her that! She said I just have to gain some weight. She looked at my leg, too, because I walk kinda funny on it. She got mad when mommy told her that some mean people hit me and broke it, and mommy was sad when the doctor said that I will always walk funny. But it doesn't hurt so mommy felt a little better. I get to go back to the doctor lady next week and get a shot, I wonder what that will be like? I bet it will be OK because the nice doctor lady really likes to give me treats!

Mommy gave me a bath yesterday. I did NOT like that at all! I stood still for mommy just because I like her, but I think she knew I didn't like it because I would not get into the bathtub, and she had to pick me up and carry me into the bathroom. I smell really really good now, though, and she gave me cheese for being such a good boy! I like cheese!

Know what is really hard? Stairs! I don't know how Toby does it! How does he figure out where his back feet go? I know where to put my front feet, but not the back ones. Mommy helps me, I guess I'll learn where they go sooner or later. Stairs are scary though. Everything is scary! Especially new people, places, and things. I have met a couple of mommy's friends, they are OK. I don't like it when they walk up to me, though. So I stand really still so they can't see me, and then when I'm sure they don't know I'm there I go check them out. I like my gramma a lot, she talks really nice to me and even came to the doctor with mommy and me! Mommy said something about going to a place where lots of dogs go, Petsomething??? But she doesn't think I am ready to go. I hate it when she puts this leash thingy on me, I would really rather just follow her or Toby around. So mommy said we will go to this place after I get braver and don't hate that leash thingy so much anymore.

Well, I'm really tired now and I need to take a nap. I'm a growing puppy, you know!!!
