Today was the day I arrived at my new home with my new Mum and Dad. I was only 8 weeks old so everything was so brand new and exciting! When my humans came to pick me up I was wearing an electric blue bow tie which my Mum said made me look pretty (I think she meant handsome), and my Dad started teaching me ‘sit’ straight away – I’m very good at that one.
After they had got me in the car my mum couldn’t stop taking pictures of me but I wanted to look out the window, everything went so fast! I loved it! Apparently my parents were proud of me because I made it all the way to the vets before I did a little wee but it had been a very long car journey!
At the vets I think I smelled every smell there was and there were doggies like me, I didn’t know the world was so big. The nice vet man stroked me and said I was very healthy and that someday I might be as big as 35kg! Luckily both my human parents have had big doggies before so they weren’t scared away, I was sooo relieved. You’ll never guess what happened then – the vet man stuck a sharp needle in my neck to ‘help protect me’ he said, well, if I hadn’t have had that delicious biscuit afterwards, he may not have stayed my friend.
So on I went to my home. The first time I tiptoed in I was nervous but I bounded straight through the house, I felt safe and loved it there and there were so many new smells; I couldn’t believe how many smells there were! I became so exhausted after discovering all these new aromas, and with the long car journey (Mum says it was only 30 minutes) that I flopped down on my blankie and fell asleep! My Dad had to carefully lift me up and carry me to my bed in my crate. Oh, you should see my crate! It is my Mum’s family dog’s crate and he is a big Labrador so it was HUGE! It was like a mansion, I had a bed and a blanket and a soft rug and a water bowl but I liked squishing in between the bed and the side of the crate. It was comfy.
Well, that was the day I arrived at my forever home and what a day it was. I hope you enjoyed my first story!
