Well, I found my forever home one week ago and life couldn't be better! My new sister Zoe is quite the character and in spite of being a little pushy in the beginning, she has now warmed up to my presence. Gee, who wouldn't love such a good looking boy like me.
It would be great if my mum and dad didn't have to go to work, but I really can't complain too much as I get to stay in the cosy room with a Kong and some treats. I don't really care about Kongs, unlike my sister, but don't tell my mum as she rushed out to buy a new one just for me. She also rushed out and bought me a plush doggy bed, but it really is too soft for my liking. I was hoping Zoe would use it but she just loves to throw it around the room.
Speaking of Zoe. She actually gets to stay in the main bedroom during the day as my parents don't think it is wise to leave us together. But little do they know that we talk to each other through the vents while they are away. Actually, my dad came home and caught us the other day and he thought it was hilarious.
I really cannot believe how much exercise I am getting these days. My parents work full time and my mum is at college 2 nights per week, but this doesn't prevent them from taking me on lots of fun walks around the neighborhood. My mum even gets up at 5am to take us for a run and then in the evenings I get to walk for 1.5hrs with mum, dad and Zoe. Gee, this is the life!
I have also noticed that my skin hasn't been itchy since coming to my new home. Mum tells me that the food I was eating probably caused my skin issues and now that I am eating Evo dry food (with some salmon oil) I am feeling much better. I think a stress free life also helps and my life is certainly that.
Well, I better go and get some rest, as I heard that my mum is taking me to a dog friendly wine tasting event in my neighborhood this evening. Now that should be fun! Cheers!

Well, I think I have finally found my forever home. Admittedly, I have only been in my new house for 6 days, but it does seem like my mum and dad really love me alot.
My new mum and dad don't know a whole lot about my life other than I arrived at the shelter around the age of 3 yrs old. A friend had taken me from my original home to try and give me a better life, but I only stayed with her for a month and then I was dropped off at the animal shelter. I really didn't like staying in that place and ended up getting a really bad cough, then the hair on my head started to fall out. The wonderful people at the shelter thought I was stressed so they found me a foster mum, who decided to adopt me. I was so excited! I am going to a new home again, but this time I just knew it would be forever.
But I was wrong. Just a few months later I found myself back in the shelter, again. I really don't know what I did wrong? But here I am, again, back in this cold, dark cell.
Then something wonderful happened. I started to hear a buzz around the shelter about someone wanting to meet me. Can you believe it? I should be really happy, but I don’t think I am going to get too excited about the prospect of a new home just yet.
Well, I met the new lady and she seems lovely. I knew straight away that she had fallen for my good looks, but then she drove away. Oh well, back to the cage. Well, would you believe she came back AGAIN and this time she had another dog with her? Maybe she is dropping her dog off just like I was dropped off. Well, we actually got a chance to sniff each other and then she drove away, again.
Well, at that point I thought all hope for me finding a new home was gone, but would you believe that the lady came back AGAIN! This time she had the same dog with her and a man. Well, I thought they all seemed lovely, and I was nearly excited enough to start wagging my tail…and then they left.
One day went by, then another, and then on the third day the lady came back (yet again), but this time she had a collar and leash. I really think this is it! Yep, she put the collar on me, the staff said there farewells, and we were on our way, home sweet home.
