Arrival Story:
Chance didn't have an easy life at first. I first met him in October, he was only a few months old and had been bit by his former owners' other dog over a chew toy and ended up with a broken leg. I work at the hospital that put his leg in a cast. His old owners said that they would never bring him back for a bandage change. About a month later, he came back. This time, he had gotten caught on his old owners' chain link fence because they decided it was too much trouble to walk him on a leash with his leg in a cast. A week later, he ended up at the pound, his old owners claimed he was a "stray." I recognized him almost immediately and knew he was the dog for me. I took him home a week later but came to the pound nearly every day before he came home.

A Day in the Life of Chance

OMD! A tree fell down last night.

Hey everydog! How are you all? I'm ok a little bit shaken up by what happened last night. I got really scared.

We had some very bad weather last night, and mommy didn't want me out too much but as everydog knows when you gotta go to the bathroom, you gotta go! So mommy had to let me out.

She then went to make popcorn for us while I was outside. Then all of a sudden we both heard a loud bang. OMD! It was a tree! A tree had fallen down at the side steps. That's where I like to go to hang out sometimes. Mommy was so scared.

She came running out like crazy to me but I was ok, I was running around like nothing happened. Mommy gave me a huge hug in the pouring rain and said "Oh thank God! You're ok. I was so worried baby boy."

Mommy said that if anything had happened to me the person who owns the property with the three that fell down would've been in serious trouble!

Anyway, that's it for now! I'm ok...and mommy is ok. :)


Momma's back to school...Park yesterday

Momma went back to school today. She goes to school all day on Monday and it makes me miss her very much, plus last week she wasn't home very much. She's been spending time with a friend named Evan. Should I be jealous? I feel like I should. Who is this Evan to take my momma away from me? She told me though that Evan says it is ok for me to come over when she goes there next time.

Anyway, yesterday on Easter, I went to the park because momma wanted to spend time with her favorite boy alone. She even left her cell phone in the car so that we could hang out without any interruptions.

At the park, while we were walking these little dogs started barking at me in my face. I got scared. Momma said I could have easily kicked their butts but I'm not that kind of dog at all. All I want is to make friends. Their people said that they were just being friendly but I don't believe it.

Also, yesterday I got to put my feet in the ocean! I swear the ocean is like the coolest thing I've ever seen!!!!!!! The water moves up and down makes noises and all kinds of good stuff. Momma says I still can't swim in the water because she's afraid but she says the pond is ok though.

Momma is home today! Yay for me! She said that maybe tomorrow since she only has one class that she doesn't like too much she might go pick up Evan and skip class and then all three of us will go to the park. Or she might go to class then pick Evan up and come get me then all three of us can still go to the park! It's supposed to be really nice outside.

Momma wanted to take me to this park near Evan's house but then she found out there's some kind of Pooch pass she needs to buy and it would cost her $45 since she's not a town resident. Can you believe that? $45! The one that momma takes me to right now is completely free!!

Anyway, that's it for now. I will write soon :)


Fun Day at The Park Yesterday

It's been a while since I got a chance to write here. I'm sorry but I need mommy's help to use the computer and it isn't easy when she works and goes to school!

Yesterday I had so much fun! Mommy took me to the dog park. I have to admit though, I'm a little bit afraid of other dogs because I had a bad experience when I was a baby but mommy said she was really impressed with me.

At the park, mommy introduced me to someone. His name is Tom. I like him but I didn't like how much attention mommy was giving to him! I'm the baby and the only boy in her life...and that's how it should remain, right?!

But anyway, Tom is really nice. He played with me and he loved how I act around birds. Mom said that he said I'm an awesome dog and I am. I am.

So anyway, at this park, at the very end of the park is the beach. I watched other dogs go into the water but mom said it was too cold for me. I wanted to sooo badly, why couldn't I? Not fair.

Mommy says when it gets warmer, I can go swimming in the lake but not the ocean. She says she's afraid that I could drown.

Anyway, that's it for now. I had so much fun yesterday. I was supposed to go out again today but it's I have to stay inside. Poo!
