Arrival Story:
I've wanted a dog since I was about five years old, but due to family circumstances (nobody wanting one but me) was always unable to have one. When my husband and I moved into our new place which allows pets, we decided it was the right time to add to our new family. Ace and Nova came home in August... our wedding present to ourselves. Raising puppies is certainly a challenge, more than I ever expected, but also one of the most rewarding things I've ever experienced.

Nova's Thoughts

I've been neutered!

I'm tired of being in my crate. Mom and Dad took us to the vet the other day, and now Mom says we're neutered. We have to be very quiet and get lots of rest. It's sooooo boring. I think Annie's laughing at me, cuz she'll sit outside my crate and look at me. She might be mad too though, because now she has nobody to play with. She just wanders around and meows at Mommy, cuz she wants to go outside but isn't allowed. Serves her right, now she knows how I feel. I'm only allowed outside on a leash to go to the bathroom. I can't run around, and I can't play or find sticks. And Mom keeps telling me to stop licking! What else am I supposed to do? I guess it is nice to sleep lots, and get lots of special pets, but I'll be glad when we're done talking about this neuter thing. I want to play and run and jump and sleep on the bed. Mom doesn't understand. She says if I rest I'll get better faster and feel like myself again. I say I'll feel better when I get my own way and get to go for a big long walk!


Getting older

We're starting to get our big puppy fur. The ladies at the vet told us when we went to get our shots. Everyone was telling us how cute and well behaved we are. Of course we are... she had treats. I'm always good when I know there's treats. Mommy thinks the big puppy fur is great. She's always talking about it. Always something about the big boy fur. Oh well... if it distracts her from trying to cut my nails, I'm okay with that. What's wrong with nails? I don't see her cutting the new kitty's nails!! New kitty must be special. She gets lots of attention and doesn't have to go outside to pee or poop!! But she doesn't get to play outside in the leaves either. I guess I am a lucky puppy.


In the forest

Mommy took us for a walk in the forest today with our neighbour Willow and her mommy. I like Willow, she's fun to chase. I like pretty much everybody though. I was super excited because we got to play with no leashes, and that meant I could smell EVERYTHING! I love to explore, and although there's lots to see in our backyard, it was fun to get out to a new place. There were lots of pine cones to chase. Sometimes our mommies kick them as they're walking, so I try to grab them before they stop rolling. Willow's fast though, she gets most of them. I guess I got too far away a couple of times. Mommy had to call me back, but I was a good boy. I'm getting much better at listening the last few weeks. I was sad when it was time to come home, sometimes I feel like I could run all day. But mommy promised we could go again, so I guess I'll just have to wait.
