Arrival Story:
After my Mom's sister adopted me I rode the puppy bus for 22 hours all the way from Arkansas to a rest stop in NJ where I was picked up, and met my new brother Zippy. I lived in NY for a few months, but found it quite boring and depressing. My current Mom offered to take me to obedience lessons in PA, I loved it there and she decided to let me stay permanently. I love all the open space, the dog park, walks in the neighborhood, and my own snuggle ball! I also really love visits from my best cat buddy Roxy, and my housemate Graycie (who doesn't seem to like me so much, but I can tell she is warming up to me), and above all my Mommy who takes great care of me and spoils me rotten.

A nice lady found me sitting in front of her house in Arkansas, I was very skinny, and stragly looking. She brought me to the Vet to find who my owner was with my rabies tag, the nice lady drove by the home and saw my horrid living conditions and decided to take me to a rescue organization. There I recieved proper medical treatment for my infection caused by flea infestation. They also discovered that some awful person shot me in the leg with a BB gun! My leg is functioning fine though, so no worries. I lived in a foster home until my Mom's sister found me on and adopted me.

I've been wanting a sibling for a while now, and Mommy knew that too. Mommy has been looking at rescues, along with other dogs up for adoption. Every time she contacted them, they never called her back >:( So my Mommy decided to take a break from looking and getting our hopes up, then one day it happened! One of Mommy's friends from saw a post for a boy in Michigan that needed a new home. With the help of all of Mommy's yorkietalk friends, within an hour of contacting the Foster Mom he was set for a plane ride to Philly! There was still alot of planning to do, he needed a crate, a health certificate, plus getting to the airport.

The day finally came for him to leave Michigan, he was picked up from his foster home and taken to the airport. Everything seemed to be going well until the delays :( His flight was delayed over 3 hours!!! Poor guy, he must of been so scared. When Mommy and I headed off the airport, during that time his flight was delayed even more! We waited, and waited in the cargo parking lot until his flight arrived. When his flight arrived Mommy went in and told the nice lady at the office, so she personally went to get him. When she got back, he was the first doggie to leave. Yay! my new brother! His previous owner named him Harley and Mommy kept it that way. It's been so much fun having a sibling! We play together, go on walks, to the park, and sleep together at night.

We just got home from the PetSmart Howl-O-Ween contest. My mommy finished making me my Lion costume yesterdary. At first I thought the head piece was a big furry toy for me to play with, I gave Mommy a hard time trying to get it over my head. Luckily I was the only Lion in the contest, otherwise that would of been really awkward not to mention a major fashion faux pas. I got my picture taken, did the parade (the pic is me waiting for the parade to start), then finally the costume contest. After they called first and second place, I didn't think I was going to win....then ding! ding! ding! I won third place! The prize was a gift card, and a free pass for day camp. Not to mention the bags of treats they were giving away all ready. I'm definitly going to make sure Mommy takes me again next year!


I'll pencil you in....

My Mommy is really keeping me busy with all the meetups and events. This past weekend we went to the Central Jersey mixed mutt meetup at Rocky Top Dog Park, and this was after we went to our regular park. At least I got to take a nap in the car while on our way there. It was kind of confusing at first since someone has to let you in with a security pass, but I got to hang out with the small dogs first before going into the big enclosure where all my meetup friends were. In the big enclosure there was a pond, the big dogs really liked jumping and splashing around. When they got out they shook off some water and then rolled in the dirt - ICK! Especially since I don't like getting wet. I made a new yorkie-poo friend from the meetup and we started to wrastle! My new friend was getting pummled by the big dogs so I followed him back to the small dog side. Then I made another friend and we all had a friend sandwich as I like to call it (Mommy calls it something else though, sounds like mump sandwich...). After a couple of hours I decided I was tired and ready to go home.
I thought I was going to take a nap but then Zippy and my cousin Lucky came over, turns out Lucky is staying over for a whole week! Last time I saw Lucky was at Thanksgiving and he is a huge! Mommy says Lucky is a lab/border collie mix, but I don't care he is taking over all my favorite pee spots on our walks :(
