A Day of Very Strange Things

Hi there, Rainy here! It's been quite a day! First off I was just barely starting off the day as usual, with Taz, and Jasmine and Mia, the other puggies in my foster home, when a visitor arrived, only she wasn't a visitor to me! She was my new mom! After a short time, we got in the car for the 70 mile ride (mom told me this because I's got no clue what the heck a mile is, much less 70s of them). I didn't want to sit in a carrier for the way home -- no, I wanted to sit on mom's lap and help her drive (watch out for that big truck mom, even I can see that!). Finally I settled down and curled up on the passenger's seat while mom drove home. When we finally got home, there were so many strange and new things to get used to. We went into this door that opened by itself and closed by itself and made my tummy fall. Then we went into this strange new place that mom said was home. I checked out every nook and crannie that I could get to, just sniffing and snorting and being so excited. There was a comfy couch I really like and a couple of new toys that I don't have to share with anyone else! Mom went beyond the gate that was up and I couldn't see her and I cried. Then I pooped (oops!). I's was real excited I guess. Mom took me out to the balcony and I peed there like a good puggie, though I missed the pee pads and peed on the tarp. We watched something on Food Network and it looked mighty good but I also napped through that. Then we went out for a walk, and I met a guy who was just standing outside and he scratched my neck and said he had two puggies and couldn't sleep without one of them snoring at him. There were so many new smells and sounds! I've never seen the big city before! Then mom put me in my crate for hours and hours and hours! (Mom's note, it was 10 minutes) but after I got sprung, I got dinner! Then I got crated again when mom ate her dinner. Don't know what that's all about! Anyway, I think there'll be a few more "outside" times on the balcony yet tonight -- I did find it was a great place to people watch! -- and maybe a nap on the couch. Mom's gonna try to crate me for the night, but I'll probably just whine and cry and she'll cave. Anyways, I's heard all about all the blogging pups my mom's found and I made her help me do my very first bloggy thing (not really sure what a blog is, but maybe it'll be tasty!). Nice to meet you all!

Hello, Miss Rainy!

I'm glad you got to your new home safe and sound! I got my mom and dad to cave on the crate issue right away by jumping up on their bed at bedtime and looking adorable. I snuggled right up to Mom and they knew that's where I belonged!

I love your pink harness! You are too cute!

Deaest Rainy
I am sooo honored to read your first bloggy story. You are soo adorably cute. Look at you with your little sweet pink harness on.
What big brown eyes you have and what cute lips.
I know you are getting used to everything new- but it sounds to me like your fitting right into the picture of your mamas home.
I am so happy that you have someone to love you forever and not have to give you away. It sounds like this love is forever.

Well hellloooo Ms. Rainy!

Don't worry, we all have pooped in the house when we first got here. It happens. Nothing to be ashamed of. Just don't make a habit of it. And ummm, you gotta get mom to cave on the sleepin' arrangements. Us puggies LOVE to sleep under the covers with our family.

Congrats on your new home!!

Hi Rainy! I'm Stubby and I'm so glad to finally meet you. Your mom has been talking about your for weeks and she is so overjoyed to have you in her life.

I remember when I first came home, how I sniffed everything I could get my little nose into. Oh what a time I had! As you explore your forever home, take note of important things like where the food is kept, where your mom sleeps, and where to do your business.

I can't wait to read all about your adventures on your bloggy. I wonder if your mom is going to have a bloggy all for you or if you're going to post on this one. Either way, I'll follow you along on this journey.

Can't wait to meet you next month!

Stubby xoxo
