Right now I am in my run at Best Friends. My caretakers have told me that I am going to be adopted and that I will be leaving my friends Bashful and Cheelah by Oct. 3. I am sad to leave my friends, but happy that I will have a forever home. I know the girls who are adopting me. We spent time together when they were here at Best Friends. They took me to the park in Kanab, Utah. We walked all over the sanctuary and visited people and animals. They are such nice girls...and they are good to me.
I will have to be brave when I fly on Oct. 3. I've never been on an airplane and it will be scary...but Joyce told me that they will be there to get me as soon as I land....I will be sooo happy to see them.
OK...gotta get back to business here with Bashful and Cheelah. I need to explain to them that I will be leaving soon, but I will always remember them as my best doggie friends.
Bye for now....Love, Yola

Julie and Joyce, my caretakers here at Best Friends, tell me that I have only 21 more days till I go to my forever home. I can't wait!! I know my new mom started this diary for me and she said she will take photos of me when I arrive by airplane. That will be so exciting!! I can share my photos with you right here. I hope I will have lots of friends here on dogster when I finally arrive at my new home. I'm a very friendly girl.
Time for me to go to sleep and dream of my new life....I'm sure lucky!
Good night everyone....

I just sat here with Julie, my caretaker at Best Friends, while she wrote an email to my new mom. My mom had written to her to see how I was doing. (smile)
Julie told my new mom that I am doing well, and then Julie told me how many more days it will be till I am in my new home...20 more!
She said that my new moms bought me a blanket and a new bed...I sure am lucky!! My tail is beginning to wag now....I never thought I would get a chance to have a forever home.
I gonna go to sleep now...and dream doggie dreams of my new home with my two moms...(they are sisters).
G'nite Julie and Joyce. G'nite Bashful and Cheelah. G'nite my two moms....I love you.
Love, Yola

Today I found my first friend online...her name is Princess Leia. I am very excited about this. Although I am a very quiet girl, I'm used to having friends here at Best Friends. I live in a dog run with 3 feral dogs. They love me, and I love them. I'm very easy to get along with too. Princess Leia is beautiful...she is a greyhound and she was rescued just like me! I know we are going to be very good friends. I gave her a dog bone!
Love, Yola

Finally I am here in my forever home!! I arrived Saturday night, Oct. 4, 2008 at 8:30PM. I flew from Las Vegas to Newark, NJ on a Continental flight. I traveled in a big crate. The airlines people were
very nice to me.
I saw my new family right away and I began to wag my tail. I remembered them from when they came to visit me at Best Friends. They were sooooo glad to see me and they loved me up and kissed me! Wow that felt good!!
On Sunday my family and the neighbors were having a garage sale and I came out to see my new neighbors. I sat with my family for awhile and then I went back into my house. On Monday we went shopping at Petco. I picked out some new doggie dishes on a nice high feeding station....I picked out a traveling water dish for when we travel together, and I got a whole big bag of Doggie treats at the Treat Bar. Yummy they are good. The saleslady thought I was such a nice, well-behaved dog and she gave me some samples of the cookies for free! I like to ride in the car...and see my new neighborhood. Tomorrow is another adventure....wonder where they will take me tomorrow? THIS is fun!!
Love, Yola

I've been in my new home for a little more than 2 weeks now. I feel as if I've always lived here. Life is fun! Sometimes we go out in the car together. I like to ride in the car. I've been to Petco and we like to go out for lunch. My family takes me to outdoor eating places where I can just lie by their feet while they eat lunch. I NEVER beg from the table and everyone who sees me says that I'm so good! I like to be in my house too. I live with a cat named Chloe Louise. She is beginning to get friendlier, although she doesn't get too close. We like to have our treats together at night before bedtime. I see her checking me out lots of time. I figure if I'm just nice and quiet, she will come closer. We like being together when my family goes's a nice feeling to know that you are not alone.
I'm so lucky to be here.....and I'm very happy. My family loves me and I love them. Life is good!


Good day for cleaning, resting and playing with the voki!!

It's Sunday....I have helped Mom clean the bathroom, pick up the laundry and load the dishwasher. I help by sitting with her while she works! The only thing I can't do is go up and down stairs. Is there any other dog out there who can't go up and down stairs too? I feel a little silly, but I'm not used to stairs so I really don't know how to navigate them.

Today Mommy showed me how to send messages with my new voki. She makes my voki talk too! She just found out how to send messages to others who have a voki....this is alot of fun! I have lots of nice new friends....I never thought I would have so many friends.

Do you know that Mom is going to take me to Florida? She will drive down to Florida from NY. I will have the whole back seat to myself...
She says we will stop often so I can stretch my legs and we will stop in motels that are pet friendly... As long as I'm with her, I don't care where we go!!
I'm very excited....we will stay right on the beach...uh...what IS a beach?? I've never been to a beach before! It sounds like fun....I can't wait...but I have to be patient...we aren't going till January!

Life is great here....I'm such a lucky dog! I love my new family...
Love, Yola

Well, it has been quite some time since I have written here in my diary. The winter was a very long one, but I really don't mnd the cold or the snow.
Today I went outside with my Mom while she planted our vegetable garden and the flower garden. It was fun to watch her.....I kept wanderng away and she had to keep bringing me back! I just get curious and love to sniff and investigate!

We are getting ready once again to go to Florida. I love the place we stay right on the beach. I can't wait to walk on the beach at sunset.
I hope I meet my doggie friends once again. My mom is buying a van so we can travel in comfort. That is good for me since I need alot of room! My mom is very good to me!!

Life is wonderful here.....I can't believe what a lucky dog I am to have found my furever home!
I want to say hi to all my friends here at Dogster....I have missed you all, but maybe I will be able to visit here more often now....
Bye for now...
Love, Yola


Summer Vacation in Ft. Myers Beach, Florida

Hi Everyone,
I've been away from my Dogster page for too long. I have so many things to tell you all about.
My family bought a new minivan for us to travel to Florida. They can put down all the seats in the back and my WHOLE bed and blankets fit in there. I can stretch out and rest so nicely!
We had a very nice drive took us 2 1/2 days from New York because we like to take our time and stop and look at interesting things along the way.

Our place in Ft. Myers Beach, Fl is a little efficiency RIGHT ON THE BEACH!! I like to take walks along the beach at sunset when it is not too hot. I even like to wade in the warm waters of the Gulf. My mom posted some new pics of me on the beach, wading in the water and watching the beautiful sunset. Everyone comes out on the beach for sunset celebration....and everyone claps as the sun sinks into the Gulf of Mexico. The man next door blows into a big conch shell and it makes a beautiful soft sound as the sun sinks down. Mom says it is a good night song to the sun!

Other doggies stay at the same place that I do. It is a very pet friendly place and that makes it really nice for me.
Several times we went to Times Square which is a closed off street near the beach. Everyone there watches the sun set and there are many street entertainers too. My mom likes to get a Dairy Queen and we sit on the bench and watch the sun sink lower and lower ....

Florida is so much fun!! We will be going back again in the Fall. The only things I DON'T like about summer are the Thunder Storms! Gosh they scare me! I shake all over and pace and pant....why am I so scared of thunder???

I LOVE the beach.....just like my family! We have sooo much fun together!
Love, Yola
