I made it to my new home and immediately felt comfortable enough to pee on the carpet downstairs. I don’t think that was well-received, so I made a mental note of it (and immediately forgot about it, I am a puppy, remember?). I had already met my brother, Busgy, and sister, Nikki. I posted a picture of them below. My new Mama takes a lot of pictures so I will be posting a lot in my dog-blog.
Looking back, I didn’t realize that they were also nervous about me joining the family so I didn’t play it safe at all, I jumped right in! I went to the toy bin (which I loved) and got a ball and then a rope to play tug – Nikki seemed to be the one to play tug with – I wanted to play all night! I was worried the fun was going to end and I would be sent to another place so I wanted to make it last all night. I ran around outside and took only minimal required breaks on the deck or on my new bed. I was so happy in my new home!
I was pretty skinny, though, so I knew I would be eating a lot to get big like my brother and sister. But I never anticipated the quantity of treats and bones I would get! All I had to do was that “sit” thing and the treats kept coming. Totally pawsome!
We went to the pet store and I got a new collar and tag with my new name, Zoey, my new address and my Mama’s and Daddy’s phone numbers both on it. I guess they wanted to be thorough.
I also met my other new sister, Sophie. She is a “cat”. Not totally sure about her; I like barking at her when she sits in my Mama’s closet. She seems to be the guard or something. Mama mentioned something about that being “off limits”; something about having lots of “shoes”. Those sound tasty!
Well I know I have a lot to learn; they all keep saying, “No” a lot and “Down”, whatever that means.
More to come!
