well in 2 days I will be 10yrs old. I can't believe it, and neither can Mom and Dad at least that is what Mom keeps saying over and over. I don't really feel 10yrs old all that much, but I sure have been getting alot of skin tags all over my body, and Mom doesn't like them. She is forever asking the Doc about them, and just says they are from old age. But I still can run with the pup next door, and I can still give my cousin Reggie a run for his money too. So my journey here in Philadelphia started 10 yrs ago in April, but I was born on Jan. 19th. Dad bought me for Mom on her 30th B-day, and she was so surprised when I came in the house. I actually lived with Aunt Allison for a week before I went to Mom's so when Dad gave me to Mom I ran in and went straight to Aunt Allison and I think Mom was like what is going on here... But I bonded with Mom and Dad right away and it's been love ever since. All 3 of us are attached at the hip, except for when Mom and Dad go to work. Dad says I'm his shadow. I always hear them talking about me and saying, "remember when he was this small, and they do things with there hands" I really do think that I do have the best life in the world!!!! Mom always says "Who's the best doggie in Philadelphia" and I know it's ME!!!!! and then I give her licks...I get lots of car rides, we always go to visit people which I love, but don't like to stay long cause I want to get home to see Grandma. Grandma lives with us and she takes care of me while Mom and Dad are at work. So see I do have the best life ever. Grampy loves me too, he comes and visits me when he comes back from Arizona. We go for walks up to squirrell park all the time, I love it up there, I've never caught one yet, but I will. It's an open field up there and I can go off the leash and run free it's so much fun to just frolick around. I have lots of friends up there too. Speaking of friends when I was younger I used to sleep in the window all day and sun....well the kids in the neighborhood would stop and look at me all the time and would ask Mom and Dad if I could come out and play with them. They all know me by the dog Petey that lays in the window!!!!! Another short funny story...after I got neutered, I couldn't wear that lamp shade thing cause I was so small, so Mom got me a pair of boys underwear and I wore them and it worked out great, so I would get up in the window with them on and the kids thought that was the funniest thing "a dog with underwear on" Then there's camping.....not a real big fan of, but I go because I love Mom and Dad and I always want to be with them. I've also been to the ocean and that was not a good experience, I almost drowned...and I think Mom and Dad almost died that night too. It was my own fault, I decided to run after the sand crabs and ran into the water and a wave came over top of me and rolled me out, it happened so fast, Mom and Dad came running out into the ocean too. OMD it was awful I got out on my own though and I was scared I ran up to them and sat there and didn't move an inch. I was full of sand. They picked me up and hug and kissed me some much... I think that is why I don't like the water. That was a long time ago, when I was a little squirt and didn't know better. That was the first vacation I went on with Mom and Dad down the shore to OC Maryland. It didn't last long, the 2nd day they had to drive me all the way home again, cause I barked everytime they went out and the neighbors complained. Well I guess that is about it, hope you enjoy my little story about some of my wonderful life with my Mom and Dad. Thanks for reading it....
