Today, I'm with Daddy at Dogster HQ. It's sorta torture because there is this other cool dog, Marcel, and I can't play with him yet. I still need to get a few more shots before I can finally explore my city and play with my other furry friends.
Because I'm with Daddy today, Mommy is a bit sad. She wanted me to go to the office with Daddy since I can be quite a handful while she's trying to work. But now, that she's without me, she misses me A LOT. Ha, that will make her love me even more when I get to see her again tonight. She'll probably be ready to play with me for a LONG time tonight. ;-)
It's only a few more days till Christmas. I really like jumping into our Christmas tree at home but my humans disagree with me. They can really spoil that fun sometimes.
Hey, Grand'fur'father, high paw for this awesome doggy bed that you gave me for Christmas! I love it!! When my humans brought it home last night, I crawled into it right away. It's so cozy. Still pretty big for me but I'm growing up fast so it will be perfect in a few months. For now, I've been dragging all of my toys into my new bed so no one can take them from me.
Ok, I want to watch Daddy clean up my accident now. Then, I'll be ready for another nap. Catch you later! Woof!

I've been at the vet's 4 times already since I came home. They can't just make up their mind what's wrong with me. I'm trying to eat better and I'm really good! I SO wish I could get all better and have my shots done so I can go outside and play with all the other pups.
And by the way, I'm SOOOO excited to come to Dogster HQ tomorrow! I wanna play all the time but I'll act so good so I can come back again the next day. Mommy has done such a good job taking care of this pup and I'm trying my best to get better about the whole peeing on the floor thing. Oops! ;>
Anyways, that's all for now! See ya!

I knew at all the time... I work at the best place in the world (well, besides Dogster). My employer just organized an empty office for me so I can bring our little Griffin into work next week. That will give him the privacy he needs as a little puppy who just got rescued from a shelter. I'm really thankful for all the support!
By the way, the shelter called me this morning. There's a tiny chance that Griffin will only get neutered next week, which means, we would not be able to pick him up this Saturday. Could ya'll join me real quick in prayer that our little pup can come home this weekend?! We're anxious to give him a cozy home filled with LOVE and TREATS!
Anyways, we continue to get ready, get the house puppy-proof and read as many books about puppy training as time allows. (yeah, we know that it's all gonna be completely different anyways... ;-)

Last Saturday we drove to Madera County Animal Shelter to visit Griffin even though they haven't responded to our application. We got in just before closing and were able to play with him right away. VERY playful and so fun! The perfect pup!
We filled out the adoption papers while the attendant spoke to her supervisor and learned that there was another application out for Griffin, but they would adopt him to us since we were there! We also learned that he's only 8 weeks old and was brought in at 7 weeks. They usually only keep dogs there for 5 days but knew that they would be able to find a home for him. His sister was already given a home.
Griffin will be staying there for another week while they neuter him. We'll pick him up this Saturday. We've already bought a ton of stuff for him and we still need to pick up a bed, leash and collar. We ran into a very cool store on Chestnut St. (Catnip and Bones) with very helpful staff that gave us some free treats to give Griffin when he comes home.
I probably won't bring Griffin in to work right away to give him some puppy time, figuring stuff out at home. Wiebke's work is a little less active and will help him transition better to playing with other pups and being outside of the house.
I'll bring him in to work as soon as possible so he can get introduced to all the other pups. We also need to get him house-trained quickly so he doesn't have accidents everywhere. I've learned that if your pup urinates where you don't want them to, that you're supposed to roll up a newspaper and hit yourself on the head! Haha.
