It's All Good!!

Milo:   I could get used to a place like this!   Lots of good food and company... even The Murdog is turning out not to be as cranky as I thought he was going to be.  Although sometimes he hovers outside my crate when I'm in it and stares at me, and then as soon as I leave he seems to whip right in there.  Very strange behavior.

I've figured out the stairs now and I'm still a Good Boy who never has Accidents.  I'm still not sure what that means exactly, but it's obviously all good.  Mom is happy about it, anyway.  I get kind of lonely at night, so Mom has been letting me sleep with her at night.  Murray says he's never seen her let anyone do that, other than Dad, so she must think I'm pretty special.

Murray:   Actually, it's because she's sick of listening to you whine when she puts you in your crate at night.  Sheesh.

Milo:   Well, I think it's because she likes cuddling with me.  Anyway, I really do like it here, and Mom says pretty soon, I'll be going to my Forever Home, which she says will be even better... it's hard to imagine, though!

Check out the pictures of me.  The first one shows you that I'm a Handsome Boy (if I do say so myself).  The second is me doing my yoga exercises.   That's Murray back there, just watching instead of doing.   He's like that.

Mind Blowing is Here!

Murray:   Mind Blowing arrived today.  Just like all the other pups on their first day, he just HAD to run from room to room sniffing absolutely everything.   Everything!!  Repeatedly!!  You would think the guy had never been in a house before. After a while he must have tired himself out, because then he plopped himself down in my crate (yes, you heard me right, MY crate), made himself right at home and pretty much slept the rest of the day away, except for the few times when Mom took him outside to pee.  And, hey, guess what he did then?  He ran from place to place sniffing everything like he'd never been outside before!   Sheesh!

Mom and I decided Mind Blowing is too much is a mouthful so she said I could give him a nick name.  I decided on Milo.  Everyone in the family thought it was a good choice, so that's what who he is now.  Milo. 

He's been pretty cool, all things considered, but did get a little uppity this afternoon.  When I was lying down, he stepped over me.   I took that opportunity to show him who's boss, so now he knows.   He must have thought he could rule the roost because he's a bit larger than I am, but he's got the picture now.

Milo:  I've never been in a house before.  This is pretty cool.  I've met my whole family except for my foster brother, but Mom, Dad and my two sisters are all really nice.  My DogBro Murray might be another story, I'm not sure yet.  But everyone in my human family pet me a lot and showed me a bunch of new stuff like stairs and umbrellas (I wasn't so fond of either of those), but a lot of really good things too.  I have the run of the whole house, except Mom keeps following me everywhere.  I like having her around, but it seems a little strange.  When she gets busy, I go into my crate, but that's OK because she stays in the kitchen with me.  Mom told me I'm amazing because I haven't had any "accidents."  I have no idea what an accident is, but I'm glad she realizes that I'm amazing!  (There's a reason I was named Mind Blowing.)  Mom really does have low standards, though - you should hear how she praises me every time I pee or poop outside!  She must think I'm really dumb, but that's OK, she'll figure it out soon enough!

In the meantime, I think I'm going to like it here.  I just hope my DogBro calms down.  He seems really tense.

Mom says I can choose whether to sleep in my crate or upstairs with my big sister.  I can't decide.  I'll let you know what I decide to do.  Good night!

Mind Blowing!!

They're doing it again!   Mom and Dad are bringing home another pup to stay with us, starting tomorrow.  His name is Mind Blowing and that's a pretty good description of how I feel about now.  

Mom tells me, though, that I'll always be her Boy and no one can ever replace me.  So I guess I can put up with this new guy as long as he doesn't get too comfortable.... It might even be fun to have someone to play with again during the day.  As long as he stays away from my..., well, everything.
