|Bumper, now known as Conor!|
I'm CONOR!!!! Ain't I one helluva handsome devil?
So there I was, minding my own business, following Miss Eleni around the house hoping for a treat, then WHAMMO! My whole world got shaken up (again?) and now I have a new mom! Here's what happened:
This lady shows up at Miss Eleni's house and announces that she's taking me home - pretty damn presumptuous, if'n you ask me! I mean, don't I have a say in the matter? OK, so I ran up to her and sniffed, then I barked a little (well, the others were barking tooooo!) And yeah, I did lick her hand...and :sigh: I did let her snorgle me a little...and yeah, when one of the other dogs started to muscle in, I stayed between the lady and the other dog.
Aw shucks...I s'pose we could try this living together thing for a while. Y'know, just to see if I like you an' all...
Next thing I know, Miss Eleni whips out some paperwork, teaches mom how to look after me (I had a flea infestation and need special care for a while yet), and then puts on my snappy new (?) car harness. I waited patiently while mom yapped with Miss Eleni some more then off we went. I was sad and confused for a few minutes, not wanting to say good-bye to Miss Eleni, but also wanting to start my new adventure. So I admit, in a not so manly way, that I whimpered for a few minutes in the car. Then mom reached back to give me some scritches said it was going to be so much fun when we got to her place, so I settled down and just lay in the backseat until the car ride ended.
We drove for about an hour then mom said those magic words so many lost and lonely doggies want to hear: "We're HOME!!!"
After a tour of this new house, I followed mom upstairs to meet someone called Willy. Willy is mom's cat and he didn't look too happy to see me. So I tried to be friendly by hopping up on the bed from where he was surveying his domain.
That didn't go over well for either of us :-(
I'm going to try and convince Willy that I'm not a mean doggie and I won't try to bully him so he doesn't have to hiss and spit at me. Not sure how successful I'll be, but I'm still gonna try.
Anyway, mom unpacked My Stuff and laid my blanket on the couch. Now I'm just going to settle down and take a nap while I get used to all the new noises and smells in MY NEW HOUSE!
