OK folks, finally you get to hear from me, Mia, about how things are going. This family thinks they are training me. Boy have I got them fooled. I am really training them. For example, every time I shimmy they say "Shimmy" just like I want them to. Later when I want to eat frozen crabapples from the snow under the tree, I bark just like I have to go outside to take a potty break. When I want to see them laugh I fling my bowl some more, or chase my tail.
I played hard to get over the holidays so I would get extra love like you see in these pictures. My first Christmas was a nice family time. Santa brought me some new bones. Even though they were very tough plastic one of them was easily destroyed by my strong healthy teeth. Did I mention how much I like to get my teeth brushed? My family seems to like it when I smell good, like mint toothpaste!
Today I ran in the snow. I can still smell little mice and stuff under the snow and like to poke around in it. I ran so much that tonight I am very tired, so good night for now.
