Finding a Home

People think they find dogs, but really dogs find people. I found my owner mom and the bearded one over the internet. Kind of like for dogs. My mom called and drove to the shelter where I lived. It wasn’t like the big place where I have treat classes. It was in the country, near big farms. The guy who took care of us brought me and a cocker spaniel friend to meet her. When I saw my mom, I knew I was getting a home. I jumped out of the doggie cage and ran around. I was very happy.

They tried to tell her that I might be a little crazy. Hyper. But it was too late. I had already picked her and she had to take me. She knew I was just glad to be free.

The ride to Denver was scary. I had never been in a car, just the back of a truck. I got sick—but that was the one and only time. Then I walked my mom a little at a rest stop. My new house was strange at first. Stairs outside. Stairs inside. I had them carry me up and down the first few times. Now I can fly up and down the stairs.

I think I did a good job finding just the right owners. They usually come when I call them and they are housebroken.

Oh, I found my owners too. Actually, I adopted them, not the other way around. Hehehe! I'm sooo glad to have found them too. They are such great owners! And I'm glad that you've found yours. I bet they love you very much!

Love licks,

Yeah...I put a personals ad in the paper to find my MomDad. They drove all the way to BFWyoming to come get me. That's love. Like yours.
And it seems like you have your owners trained to give you treats whenever you feel like it. Good for you!!!
