Oh my gosh! I am one lucky pup. I got to hang out at Hero Dogs at the end of the year, and man, does it make a puppy feel all warm and fuzzy. Or maybe that was because I was running around with my four legged friends and rolling around in the mud. I got a taste of kennel life, and I think I'm going to have a blast.
I'm going to move into the kennel permanently in the middle of January. I can't wait. Frozen kongs with pumpkin! A yard! Outings. And four legged friends! I'm an only-pet at home, though I do live in a building with all sorts of other dogs. I love the dog watching on my walks, though my puppy raisers say I get distracted from "getting busy" easily.
Speaking of distractions, while I was at the kennel, I GOT A PRESENT. A stocking full of presents to be exact from the awesome people at FitzAuto Mall. I swear, the Hero Dogs staff know all the best people. Not only did I get to hang out with another fun puppy sitter recently, but those kennel volunteers were fun too. They are constantly spoiling me and my friends, and even the Heroes that come to partner with us. Did you know that Hero Dogs Inc. provides services free of charge with lifetime support of the partnerships? That's pretty cool.
But I'm getting distracted. Again. My puppy raisers helped me get rid of the packaging on the stuff when we got home again, and it has been awesome. I got a soft steering wheel (my new favorite toy), a squeaky blue tennis ball, another kong for them to fill full of treats, some doggie treats, and a tire toy. Normally I get a bit carried away on the soft toys, and next thing I know, its in pieces, but M has been watching out, and this stuff seems to be pretty durable. Hopefully, I can make it last, and can pack it all with me when I move into the kennel. See you then!
