Dear Diary in just 9 more days, on feb 26, 2008, I will have been in my new home with my new family for one whole year! It has been an exciting year, I've seen lots of new places, and learned so many new things. One of the biggest things I've learned is that it's a bad thing to go potty in the house. You have to stand by the door and when someone sees you they say "do you want to go side, go potty". Then you just make a little bark and they come and open the door and out you go. It was very hard to learn that and sometimes I still make a mistake but I'm doing pretty good in that area. I also learned that when mom and dad feed us, we each get our own dish and when it's gone we can't go eat from someone elses dish. I went on my first vacation and slept in a different kind of house called a tent. I went to doggie parks and a doggie beach. I had my first Christmas and got toys and clothes and treats. I never had clothes before I was rescued and now that I have my own home, I have lots of clothes, I have t-shirts and sweaters and a sweat shirt and a vest. I don't really like clothes but mom says they make me look cute, mom and dad have made me so happy and I love them so much that I don't mind if I have to wear the clothes. I was so scared of mom and dad at first but now I love them to hold me and I even give them little kisses! There's a few things that I haven't exactly liked besides the clothes. Things like the vet where I have to go and get shots. and also that "Bark Buster" guy that comes here sometimes and makes me not bark and he won't let me try to protect my family when I feel that they need me to keep them safe. He says it's a bad thing to bite people that come in our house. I just don't understand that. I wish they could understand that they are my family and I have to keep them safe. Another thing I don't really like is going to a place called the groomer. I don't like getting a bath and my hair cut. Oh and at night mom and dad brush my teeth and clean around my eyes, those aren't my favorite things either. I never had to do that before I came here. All in all though, I am very happy and even though it's hard to make so many changes in your life it's all worth it to have a home where you feel loved and safe and warm. My most favorite time of all is at night when I sleep in the big bed with mom and dad. I cuddle next to them and they hug me and I give them kisses and they tell me they love me.
