My name is Katie Doo and these are my “doggy tales”. Get it? I’m so clever! My folks recently lost their dog, Scoobie, in a most tearful way. They missed having a dog and started the great dog search. They checked out all the typical places that get unwanted and lost dogs. I am glad that they were picky.
My folks found my Momma Sheri and then they found me! Their biggest concern was if I would eat cats. Momma Sheri introduced me to an adorable cat who loved to rub against me and I licked her head. Cats don’t taste as good as dogs do, but this one was cute and rubbing all over me so I loved her up as well. I am glad that I didn’t act up right away. Cats might be tasty, but I was getting tired of sharing attention with all my foster brothers and sisters.
After the people were done visiting, Big Dog – my new Dad – decided to see how I worked on a leash. Yeah, that was dumb of him, I didn’t like that at all. I was found on a reservation and they don’t really use leashes there. I dug in my heels and wouldn’t move to save my soul. Big Dog was persistent and used his soothing voice to get me to take a step and get the leash loose. I dug in again when he tried to coax me a bit further. I didn’t see a reason to have a leash on. I like running around on my own. I’m pretty independent and thought a leash was scary! Big Dog was really persistent and patient, though, and I didn’t have much choice so what’s a dog gonna do?
The Man and Lady finally decided to take me home. Momma Sheri said it could be a trial to see how we all did together. The new people seemed to really like that idea. Momma Sheri made sure I had some of my food, some toys, and a special tag for my collar in case I got away. The man and lady laughed at the baby raw hide Momma Sheri sent with me. They used to have an 80 lb. dog that liked to chew on huge bones. My little rawhide surprised them, I think.
The posts that follow are letters I wrote to Momma Sheri during the trial period. My foster Momma thought Momma Sheri would like to know about my progress and that I was okay. I’m learning new stuff everyday. Some days are better than others. Feel free to subscribe and follow my exploits and antics.
