October 27th is the day mom came to get me. I didn't know what was happening. I was already 4 months old. I needed a different place. The new mom drove with one hand and let me lick the other other as I stared at her the whole way to my forever home.
Today we went to the park, just like we did last season. The trees are the same pretty colors and there are the same smells in the air and on the ground. Dad was waiting there for us. He was wearing that outfit for playing ball with all the other dads. We played fetch with kong, a stringy ball left behind by some long ago homerun, a lowflung frisbee, and my boomerrang. Of course, there was time for my favorite pastime, chewing sticks and finding the perfect weathered log to carry around. I am a true retriever.
Last year, I chased leaves on the ground like they were something wild. This year I watch as they gently fall to the ground, satisfied to see them once again. I look up at mom along our walks to tell her I am thankful for each one and to hear that I am a good girl...having come a long way in one year.....
