The only bad thing about me, according to every single human I’ve ever encountered, is that I jump vertical about 5’ high, right in the human’s personal space whenever anybody goes outside. Personal space? What the heck is that? They get really irritated about this, and yell at me to knock it off! But going out and about is just soooooo exciting!!!
I’m 5 years old, and M’Lady and her husband, TheBoss, adopted me when I was 1. I had lived down the road from them with OtherPeople since I was an adorable little fluffball, but I was lonely there. I was always escaping, and racing over to TheFam’s house, because that was where the action was. They had other dogs to play with, cows to monitor, barncats to torment, and the best was TheFam appreciated my charm and intelligence.
And, they fed me tidbits!
Finally, with all my escaping and running around, I got picked up by the dogcatchers. M’Lady worried about me, asked the OtherPeople where I was, and they hadn’t seen me in a month! They also said they didn’t want me anymore! Lucky for me, I had worked my way into TheFam’s hearts!
M’Lady searched all over the county for me, and finally found me in the slammer. Before they would release me, I had to be fixed, vaccinated, wormed, licensed and micro-chipped. After all this, I got to go home with M’Lady, and was then, truly a member of TheFam. They saved me, and my duty is now to take care of them!
But, when we do go out, I roll around in the snow to scrub my fur, race through the fields to stay in shape, skid on the ice, then leap and tear around chasing the cats. At least they’re good for that!
I’ll write again in a coupla days. You need to know about Brodi, my cohort, who is a bit of a dufus, but a good hearted and harmless fellow.
Keep your tail waggin’!
