Arrival Story: Kevin and I went to the local Animal Shelter to see what they had. We were looking for a puppy and found her with her 9 other litter mates. She is the runt of the litter and the only "chocolate" one. The rest were black and white. Kevin held her and would not put her down, so we took her home. Her kitty brothers still don't know what to think and don't really think they like her at this point!
Bio: She was found with her mother and litter mates under an old house that was going to be torn down.
Mommy and Daddy don't really know when I was born. Bob at the shelter said I was about 2 weeks old when they found me under a house with my doggie mommy and litter. When Mommy and Daddy adopted me Mommy guessed I was born on the 20th of September.
But it doesn't really matter! I have had the best year of any dog!
My Mommy and Daddy took me home from the shelter on the 9th of December, I was really mean to them because I was scared and did not trust humans. It took a while for me to start trusting them....It helped that my Daddy was not working at the time and stayed home with me every day till February.
When I moved in with the humans they had 3 cats. The cats were so much fun to bark at! But I also have scars on my nose to show for all the barking I did.
I also got very attached to my Daddy he could not leave me with my Mommy alone...I would cry till he came back...I don't do that anymore...I know they will come back.
When my humans moved I helped my Daddy move all the stuff and I was a good girl. I liked the new house and so did the cats because they had a room where I could not bother them.
In the spring my Mommy left the window open one day and I chewed the screen out so I could follow her...but it was raining and I got all wet and sick from being outside all day. I learned my lesson about breaking the windows.
In April my humans brought home another dog...Bonnie...she is my bestest friend. We play together, destroy things like the new mattress and Mommy's shoes! My Daddy keeps saying he is going to move Bonnie to the outside but then he feels sorry for her and changes his mind. I hope he doesn't I will miss her!
Anyway, it has been a really good first year. I am glad my the humans found me at the shelter and decided to take me home!
There are two things in my life that I hate...The postman and the Amish.
The postman is so rude. He comes on my porch without permission and if I am outside I cannot resist running at him. He then stomps at me and that really makes me mad. He told my mommy that he would pepper spray me if I came at him again and refuses to deliver the mail if I am outside! Whatever! My mommy told him if he would quit stomping at me I might be nicer. He then told her he would call the dog catchers!!!! Now we all don't like him!!!!
The Amish are another story. Those horse drawn carts are more noise than I can stand. I have to chase them away. And we had a yard sale at our house and my friend Dayna told mommy and daddy to let me out to visit with the customers. Well, it was not too long till a Amish man showed up to shop and I did not like him at all. Daddy had to catch me before I attacked and put me in the house till he was gone.
