I'm going to tell my story a little different this time... this is the story my momma tells me about how I came into her life. So, her and dad bought a house in June of last year... they spent a few months fixing it up before moving in in October. Mom knew it was going to be very hard for her to not have a dog because she grew up always having an animal (or 2... or 3, even 4!). Well, dad had never had an animal, of any kind! So mom wasn't sure how he'd react to having a dog. They planned on waiting a few months before trying it, but mom couldn't take it and started contacting rescue groups. She decided on fostering at first, because that would mean they would be able to try things out and didn't have to keep the dog if it didnt work out. So mom saw a really cute, cuddly border collie mix pup that was at Homeward Bound, she knew she didn't want a puppy, but he was just so cute, he drew her to that rescue. And because that's what she wanted... a border collie mix (HAHAHA). She talked to a few people and decided to stop by their clinic the following Saturday to check things out and get some more information. The lady assured my mom that they wouldn't be needing foster homes until mid-January when they were expecting a transport.
So, the night before the clinic, mom and dad had some friends over and they had lots of beer and cheeto's (true story). Mom woke up late and made everyone breakfast then realized that it was 12:45 and the Homeward Bound clinic ended at 1pm. So she hurried up and ran out of the house and made it to clinic 5 minutes before they were closing. Mom talked to the nice lady who she spoke to on the phone and she went over everything a foster parent did... then this brown goofy dog
|If you haven't figured it out already... Mom's new foster|
was ME!!!!!!!!!!!! Corbin!
Now that the boring stuff is out of the way... here are some pictures from my first year in my furever home!
|This was one of my first nights home. I used to be able to curl |
up on mom's stomach and that's how we'd watch TV
(Mom says to please excuse the awful picture of her)
|These were my Christmas presents! Mom said Santa didn't|
go all out because I was just a foster at the time and he wasn't
sure how long I'd be staying. Silly Santa.
|We lost heat a few times, so mom kept me warm with |
one of her sweatshirts.
|I could always make her laugh!|
|I gave mom lots of kisses to show how much I love her.|
|I really enjoyed taking over their bed.|
|And I learned how much I didn't like mom when she|
gave me a bath!
|I protected my new family as best as I could and always|
kept a watch out!
|Didn't take long to learn how comfy dads legs were!|
|I took lots of naps.|
|I helped mom with 5 fosters, this is Belle.|
|This is LeeLou -now known as Layla|
|This is Abby... she was so beautiful! She liked to give me kisses|
|I learned how to be a boatin' dog|
|And I loved to give everyone kisses!|
This is my Aunt Miss. Katie!
|I even gave kisses to people I didn't know!|
|I celebrated my first birthday!|
|And totally showed that duck who was boss!|
|I learned how to swim!|
|And really enjoyed swimming myself, hehe!|
|I took more naps...|
|Enjoyed ice cream!|
|Gave mom major guilt trips when she did homework|
|I really enjoyed rides in the firebird|
|Made lots of friends|
|I popped lots of balls|
Some people don't think animals can show gratitude or feel greatful. Apparently, they've never met me. I'm grateful everyday for the second chance I got at life.
|Thank you, Mom & Dad for giving me the best 365 days |
I could have ever asked for!
I also got a new foster sister last night, and I won a contest that I have to tell you about! And I have to tell you about the transport Khyra did for me! And a whole bunch of other stuff that I did to celebrate my 365 days of love. I'll tell ya about it tomorrow!
|FOSTER DOG!!! HAHAHAHAHA... Yea, right!|
