This is the post we put up 5 years ago today . . .
Today was a special day, probably the most important day of my life. Today Stanley and I came home to live with Mom and Dad! When I saw my mom and dad walk in the house to pick us up I couldn't stop wagging my tail. Mom noticed right away and picked me up. I was so glad she noticed. They loaded me and Stanley into the big red truck and drove us home. It took quite awhile. Stanley was crying for awhile but I didn't cry at all!
Once we got home, the first thing we did was go into the back yard. Of course the first thing I did was go pee. My mom was so happy when I started peeing. She started petting me and telling me I was a good boy. It made me feel so good that the whole time I was peeing I was wagging my tail.
The next thing we did was walk to the edge of the yard, where it goes down a steep hill. The view is incredible! Stanley started taking a step down the hill but backed up. Then later on we both went down the hill. Mom was surprised we went down the hill. She told dad she thought it would be weeks before we went hill climbing.
We decided we'd better check out the lava rock by the bird bath. We really liked climbing around it because it takes extra skill.
Stanley thought he was king of the hill when he decided to stand on top of the big turtle.
When we started getting tired, we decided it might be a good idea to take a nap under the wheel barrow.
When mom saw I was getting tired she thought it might be better to take a nap on her lap. I sure liked that!
After awhile I woke up, all refreshed and ready to do it all over again.
Me and Stanley talked it over and we think we're very lucky pups. We have a great mom and dad and they think we are the most amazing dogs who ever lived! We can tell we are going to have a wonderful life together. Mom reminded me to thank everyone who looked forward to our arrival with her and dad.
