Arrival Story:
My Friend used to live in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, and became interested in indigenous species. Later, he created a website for the Singing Dog, native to Papua New Guinea. He returned to the U.S. hoping to find an indigenous canid here in the U.S. He finally picked me from the Ladner line of BMC. I know he made the right choice, after all, he flew me West from Mississippi!

Remember the childhood book "Ol' Yeller?" This was about us: the Black Mouth Cur! However, I believe that a yellow Lab was used in Disney's movie rendition of the book. Don't get me wrong: Labs are nice dogs. I met one. But we all know which would've done a better job.

I could not sleep at all in my new home: I was up six times the first night. My friend was so grumpy! The next three nights I only woke up my friends four times, then finally two times.
My friend's grandma wasn't doing to well, so he took me down to Los Angeles. What a fun trip: all the different sites and smells! I had to go potty a lot, in different places as I definitely didn't want to go potty in my crate! We stopped by many fast food places that smelled so delicious; they said it was even a treat for my friends. I didn't get any of this In-And-Out that they speak of.

There were a lot of people, and a lot of excitement! However, I went backwards: when my friend was gone to the hospital to see his grandma, I kept up his Aunts and the cousins at the house. They told me that my friend probably had a better sleep at the hospital!

My friend came back, and told me that I was named after his grandpa's dog when he was a kid. and that grandma said I had a wonderful name.


Long Flight to My New Family

I was born in Mississippi. I was told that I was going to California, but I didn't know how far away it was! I was told that my new Friend had been waiting for me for four years: before I was even born! He knew me, and wanted me! And yet he waited...

I was flown in to San Fransisco, a very interesting city. I was not used to the sudden colder and drier weather. I was shivering in my crate, where a bed of wood chips kept me warm. Perhaps, this is why I love chewing on wood products to this very day!

The most stressful thing was what they call "time change." I guess I flew over three time changes, and my Friend didn't realize that he was supposed to pick me up three hours earlier. He and his wife finally came to the cargo warehouse. He apologized, but I was just relieved to find that I wasn't forgotten.

I then had to go potty...

They put me in a moving crate that has big, black round paws. To this day, I avoid it when it's moving, but I love riding in it! My Friend says I'm a great rider.

I got in the moving crate, felt the warm sun shine through, and I immediately fell asleep in my Friend's wife's arms...Last thing I heard before drifting off to sleep was, "Isn't she precious?"
