Step-Dog's Daily Diary
7-13-01 I received a lot of mail today. Lots of good emails. Thanks to all who looked at my pictures and wrote me. A very hot day even in the shade. Chased a few grasshoppers. Some of them were quite tasty.
7-14-01 No mail today. Had my picture taken. Didn't want to smile for the camera. Had a bath. Went to the barn and looked at the barn cats. Growled at cats that tried to get my place on the step and went back to sleep.
7-15-01 Looks like my main job today is to keep the cats off the back step. The cats are getting used to me and are beginning to crowd me now. I guess they are used to being fed on my step. There's a big black Chow dog named Sinbad. He's trying to ignore me. I think he lives on the front porch. A lot of folks came to see me today, everybody liked me and played with me, but nobody had a place to keep me.
7-16-01 I took a long walk with my keepers this morning and jumped into my tub of water to cool off when we returned. I have been tired enough to take several naps since then.
7-17-01 I didn't get to go on a walk this morning but I managed to keep busy. I have a couple of rugs that I have been shredding, it may take some time, the weave is kind of close. I overheard my keepers talking about taking me to the vet. I wonder what that is about? Some folks keep wanting to trade some other breed of dog for me but I just ain't gonna have it. I want a good home all to my self.
Well this has been my lucky day, I am going to live with a young couple that has a fenced in yard and a boy just my size to play with. I leave in the morning. I know my temporary keepers will miss me but I just need a place all my own.
I got this nice going away card today. You are welcome to read it.
I had my bath this morning and left for my new home in Abilene about 8am this morning. I was a little nervous and hungry but my temporary folks packed a lunch for me to have when I get to my new home. My new home is with a young couple that have a 4yr old boy. I should have lots of fun playing with him.
Bathing was a little scary, but I think I could get used to it. I didn't think dirt in my ears was that big of a problem.
