Arrival Story: We adopted Tonka from the local beagle rescue. We decided on a beagle because we had size limitations at our apartment but still wanted a "big dog". The rescue group "marketed" him as a man's beagle (but frankly he's very attached to Mommy!). When we met him I was petting another dog up for adoption, but my husband came over to me with Tonka in his arms and said "I like this one." The rest is history!!
I can't believe we moved... again! This time, Mommy said we live in a new city called Charlotte. I don't know anything about this place since we just got here last Monday. But somehow, Mommy and Daddy managed to find me a doggie bakery called the Canine Café. We went there yesterday and the nice ladies that work there gave me free cookies to sample -- they said I look like I don't get any love or affection at home. Little do they know that I spend my days perfecting this very look!
I can't wait to go to their Halloween party next Saturday!
So.... in between naps I've been discovering things about my new hometown. Mommy says it is a place called Raleigh, NC. I don't know my geography very well but this place has lots of good stuff to sniff! However, I'm sneezing a lot and since I'm a hound dog I always walk with my nose to the ground. Each time I pick my head up I have green stuff all over my snout. Daddy says it is called pollen and it really makes me sneeze! I even had to go to the vet because my allergies to this place made my eyes goopy and red (yes, goopy is the scientific term).
Anyhoo, Mommy works from home these days and so I get to spend 9 hours at a time sleeping in bed or on the sofa. I like this a lot! And then Daddy comes home after my naps and then we go to the Oakwood Dog Park where I get to howl all night long. Some people love my melodious singing voice, but I think some others are put-off by it. I'm not being mean, I'm just telling everyone that I'm the BOSS!
Mommy and Daddy take me when they go exploring whenever they can. So far, these are my favorite new places to visit in North Carolina:
