Arrival Story: We went into a store to look for bunnies but my boyfriend found Hopscotch in the rescue dog area. We took her into the back room to play and she was really sweet and did the cutest sit-up-and-beg, ever. He had to get her, even though she was really aggressive towards other dogs and a wee bit naughty... We adopted her that day and took her home. Poor Hop spent about a year of her life in kennels between the time at the shelter and the time at the store. After much work in classes and at home Hop is now the generally well adjusted dog that we knew she could be. Hopper knows that her Daddy brought her home and is certainly Daddies Little Girl now. We love her so much.
Bio: Because she was so aggressive towards other dogs, we put her in private socialization lessons and she so much better. She has gone to doggie day camp with good reports from her trainer in KY. Hopscotch plays VERY well with Patches and teaches her proper wrestling techniques. Hopscotch shows the difference between a bad owner and a bad pet! I'm so proud of her!
I love the new house that you bought for me. I have to say that I am so excited to see that the house comes equipped with a walk-up buffet! Between all of the bunnies, deer, and birds I may never eat another piece of kibble again. In fact, I claim dibs on the two deer that I am watching walk in our yard right now. I am watching them from the dining room window but for some reason they won't walk close enough to the window for me to pounce them and when I tried to call them over, they ran! I need you need to call someone to have them fix the buffet so it can be accessible from the house.

Well, I'm feeling a little better now! Mommy said something about me being up to my old shennanigans but, I really don't understand what she meant by that. All I know is that I love my new food. Dad told me it is prescription but again, I have no clue what that means! Come to think of it, mom and dad have used a whole bunch of words I don't know recently like pancreas, congestion, surgery, condition, and other words. I learned what "no more stitches" meant pretty fast though! Well, what I do know is since I have started eating my new food, I have been feeling better than ever! I surprize everyone by how much I want to play with toys now that my tummy isn't hurting so much. I also chase my sister and play with her a lot more. We had a great game where I chase her around the living room til she hides under the blue couch, then we see how long we can bark at each other before someone tells us to knock it off! Oh, the best of the great news is mommy FINALLY found treats I can have! They are roasted chicken treats and I luff them so very much!
Mommy says something is still wrong with me but noone knows what. My tummy area still hurts if you poke at it... My vet who loves me so VERY much says I'm famous and people all across the country are talking to her about me. Apperantly it will lead her to the reason I'm sick. Well, in anycase I am happy and home. Thank you all for the rosettes and good thoughts, they did SO much good for all of us!
