We received some paperwork from GRRR, indicating that I am about 4yrs and 5 mos. The tattletales went on to say that I enjoy soft toys, shredding them is part of the fun. I like to shred dog beds if they are not up to my standards.
Sooo, they say, nothing but balls and Kong Air toys for me. Yesterday they gave me a real beef bone. I carried it around for a bit, chewed on the yummy outside and then took it out to the deck. The humans go curious and may have stumbled on my hiding place, in an area next to a basement window well. I buried it for safekeeping, just like the dog in the insurance commercial! This morning, when I went out for my potty run, I checked to make sure the bone was still there. I don't know if I can trust them or not, so I will keep an eye on it.
Tuesday Bella and Lily returned to Denver, I went along for the ride. By the time we got back I was exhausted and a bit confused about not having my cousins here anymore. Now that I have been here a while, I have started having more facial expressions when they speak to me, letting them know what I want. There is a hanging screen in front of our French doors and I have no problem going out the split, which then closes again with magnets. It's like a large, soft doggie door. I like staying on the deck enjoying the fresh mountain air, the wonderful views, even if my peeps are in the house.
I have met most of the neighbors, and 2 of the dogs. Cody, a neighbor's GRRR dog, and I will be best friends soon. I really like people and especially enjoy playing with their dogs. I am already considered part of the family, and I am so glad that I agreed to come and live in Fraser. After the 4th they are planning a road trip to visit their son in Omaha. I will meet the whole family, including their small dog Zoe, this weekend. I really enjoy riding in the car, and I am going to have fun going on a 9 1/2 hour trip. Once I train them how to take care of me and let me out once in a while. Roads may come and roads may go, but potty stops are pretty much everywhere.
That is all for now, thanks to all the GRRR volunteers that worked to give me a nice home with nice people to share it with.
