Well, it's now full day number three with my new family, and I'm lovin' it! I miss my puppy brothers and sisters at night, so I make sure I get Mom up frequently to give me some love. Did you know that Saint Bernards howl? Hee hee hee....Mom didn't either, but I sure showed her! I "sang" for her at 1:00 a.m. on my first night here....there was an encore performance at 4:30 a.m. I thought it was lovely, but all it got me was a trip outside to "go potty" (whatever that means!).
My doggy brothers are still working on getting used to me, but it won't be long and I'll win them over with my puppy charms. Harley (my Yorkie brother) thinks I'm scarey....he runs away from me whenever I want to play. Humphrey (my Shih Tzu brother) is old and cranky, so he growls at me sometimes. But, he's starting to get curious and seems to be thinking about making friends. I hope so, because I REALLY want to play with his curly tail!!!
Yesterday Mom, Dad, and my human siblings took me to the vet. You know, I've heard other dogs say it's no fun, but I really don't see what all the fuss was about. I plopped down on my belly on the exam table and let them see my lovely pear-shaped figure. Everyone was really nice to me and I got lots of pets. Then, the vet gave me a new toy to take home. I'm a pretty healthy boy! The only bad thing was that the vet told my mom I only need about two cups of food each day....Mom had been going by the bag and giving me three (I didn't eat it all, but it sure was fun trying!). Darn vet!
Well, it's off to play toys, nibble the plants, and find the coolest spot on the floor to squash my tummy against!
More musings on another day....
