I made it to Cali with mommy on the plane a few months ago. Everything went well- mom could even see me riding the belt up into the plane. I love california so much. The weather is much cooler than Yucatan. I also get to go to the dog park on the weekend. There are so many nice puppies to play with there. I love the dog park because I get to practice my frisbee skills.
I do miss my brother Koa. Maybe some day we live together again, but right now I know it would be too much for mommy to take care of both of us...
I miss my Mexican friends, but am making more and more friends at the dog parks.
So I was left here in Mexico with a wonderful family because my mom had to return to the united states. After the initial plan of who I was to stay with fell through mom had to make some tough decisions. She was going to have to bring me to the Humane society. The next day out of no where, an extremely caring family offered to take care of me for as long as I needed to stay- until I could be reunited with my mom. Mom was so overwhelmed at this act of generosity it brought her to tears. She would be able to keep me after all.
I was less than thrilled about leaving my moms side, but she explained to me that she had to go back and get things set up for when I come back.. She told me how I am going to start taking agility classes, and maybe even some herding classes when i get back! She also told me how much she was going to miss me, and how I should warm up to my new temporary family.
I cried every night for the first week I was without mom.. But now I am starting to warm up to my new companions. They send my mom updates about me (which I know makes her happy). Right now i am fighting a pretty bad cold (had to go to the vet and get some meds because I was coughing a lot) but the doc says Im going to be good as new soon.. Hopefully I can resume eating soon as well.. This cold has made me loose my appetite the last few days...
I miss my mom alot.. I know that It might be a little longer than a few months because I cant fly in the belly of the airplane if the predicted or actual temp in the cities is above 85.. that means ill have to wait until Sept to see my mom.. But maybe she will be able to drive and get me... then we can reunite sooner.. That would mean a really long car ride for both of us... but it would be worth it!
It looks like we will be moving to Chelem in June. (Chelem =no rent and running in the yard non stop!) The yard is so big that I can do my zoomies at full speed (just have to look out for the coconut palm trees) . I think we are going back out there in a few weeks after my parents finish playing in Madame Butterfly (puccini). I am looking forward to catching the frisbee and running full speed again!!!!
