Things started out pretty rough for me in this home. I had a broken leg and couldn't run and play. I had to go to the vet every week to get my bandages changed. I had to endure the first grooming I had in a long time and learn the rules in a new home.
Sometimes I would get really sad and think about all the fun I used to have before my leg got broken. I felt like I was always on the sidelines watching while everyone else was having fun.
But, Momma kept telling me that life wasn't always going to be that bad, and she was right. Slowly, little by little things got better. My leg was declared officially healed, I was spayed and vaccinated and trips to the Spa for grooming became fun.
Cracker and I became great friends and as much as I complain about him, he really means the world to me. I love it when I curl up next to him, he is very cuddly and has nice soft fur.
I met alot of people too. I've been to hockey games, pet stores, lots of vet offices (haha) and I even met Santa Claus! I went to school and learned how to be a better dog ( I was already good lol).
I've been on holidays, met family and lots and lots of dogs (and some cats). I live in the forest & get to go walking there every day. I get trips to the beach quite often too.
I've had many jobs this year. From backhoe operator to surgeon, I've tried it all. I chase rabbits out of the yard & I've even chased a couple of deer. The rabbit leave blueberries behind for me and sometimes I get to snack on one or two before Momma tells me "Leave It".
I write two blogs & I have an advice column. I have my own Facebook Page. It's been a pretty good year.
So, why am I telling you all this? Well, because I think it's always good to remember that no matter how bad things may seem, time will pass and things will change. You just have to be patient and trust.
You can trust anyone or anything you want; it doesn't matter who or what, you just have to believe things will change.
Happy Holidays everyone. Celebrate whatever brings you joy. Look for the good in everyone and everything.
Love your friend Muppet xoxo Yip, yip!
