Arrival Story: My mommy and daddy said they wanted another Lab to go with my brother Levi! I popped out of my JoMom first - 'cause I couldn't wait to see everyone! My daddy named me after his favorite hockey player - Saku Koivu from the Montreal Canadiens! He got to pick my name because he says my mommy got to pick my brother's name.
It's me Saku! Guess what we did today? Guess! Levi and I got to go on a puppy playdate over to our friend Cadet's house! Our mommy and daddy went somewhere without us(!) and didn't think we should we be left alone at home for too long in case we thought about making a mess(!!!). Why'd they think that? And why couldn't we go too????
Anyway, Cadet is awful nice and likes to play and she's a special friend of mine! She's got toys to play with and a big bone to chew on and she lets me sniff her and her mommy and daddy are awful nice too! My brother Levi likes to lick her dad a lot - maybe he tastes good! And they've got two big boys that we can play with too! They are so fun!!! Maybe I can live with them??? But I'd miss my big brother Levi...and my mommy and daddy...and my pillow...and what about my treats? And will they let me sleep on the bed?
What, momma? What? What do you mean they wouldn't want me anyway? What? I can still go visit but not live there? Oh...okay!!!
I'm pooped from all the playing. Where's Levi? I gotta go snuggle! I hope you all had a great day like we did!
It's your buddy, Saku, here! Guess what? We helped the birds today! My Mommy brushed me and my brother, Levi, outside today and lots and lots and lots of our hair flew all over the place! That means the birdies can get it and put it in their nests and make it all nice and comfy! Aren't we good dogs?
Levi got to go see Dr. Ann a couple of days ago and they took away some lumps he had and now I can't play with him. Momma says it's only for a couple of days while he's 'cuperating. What's that mean? And how come I can't go see Dr. Ann? I like visiting too! And I like getting cookies! Not fair! What do you mean I don't want to get lumps, Mom? If Levi gots them, then I want them,too! I wanna be just like him!
