He took my bed!


Okay, so check this out. First, Mommy makes me let my new brother, Chase, be a guest blogger the other day. And then he just helped himself to laying in my bed! It's MY blog and MY bed! Not his! Like hello! At least he didn't stay in my bed and went to his own, but I was still super annoyed. 
I didn't get mad, though. I know what it's like to not have a family to call your own and to be all by yourself. I was in a puppy mill for like 3 years until the nice people at Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota took me in. And then these super nice people, Carrie and Eric, took me into their home - I had great Foster Parents! All that until finding my real forever family. So that is why I am trying to be nice to Chase. He's pretty cool actually. He's really chill, which is totally my style. Unlike my other brother, Ajax, who is super wild. Oh well.

Hope your new brother doesn't take over your stuff.

Guest Blogger - Chase

My name is Chase. Achae let me be a guest blogger today (well, actually, Mommy did. Achae didn't want me to, but Mommy told her to be nice). I am new here, so bear with me. I've never really done the whole 'blog' thing.
2 weeks ago today, my life changed. Let me start from the beginning. I was with the same family for my whole life, and then they couldn't care for me anymore, and so the nice people at the Italian Greyhound Rescue (IGCA Rescue of MN & ND), took me in. But they couldn't keep me forever, and so a really nice lady took me in. I lived with her and 2 other Iggies (Macy and Bitsy) for a while. A while started turning into a long time. I really liked it there, and my Foster Mom was great, but I didn't understand why my dream of a forever family wasn't coming true. I just didn't get it. I am nice, friendly, playful, loving, and I even bark when I need to go potty (and I never have accidents). I was starting to get sad. Maybe everyone thinks I am too old? But then it all changed...
A few weeks ago, these two people came to visit me at my Foster Mom's house. They seemed pretty friendly. And they smelled! They smelled like dogs! I like dogs, so I thought that was cool. It was a bit entertaining as they were both talking to me like I was a little baby. I'm 13! I know what's going on! But I didn't bark anything. They said some nice things about me, and my Foster Mom put in a good word for me. I was scared, but also excited about the possibility. Could they be my dream? Could they be my forever family?
And 2 weeks ago, it happened. My dream came true! My Foster Mom brought me over to my new forever home! I was really scared at first, since I didn't know exactly what was going on. I thought it was going to be another place I have to stay until my dream would come true. But this was it! And I was right about them smelling - they have another Italian Greyhound named Ajax (he is 4), and an American Eskimo rescue, Achae (she is 8).
I'm really happy here. I love my new forever parents! They seem to prefer being called Mommy and Daddy instead of Mom and Dad. They're a little strange like that, but it's okay. I have my own bed, my own blankies, and I pretty much get anything I want. It's like 24/7 room service. It's awesome! I even have a yard to play in and a fireplace to chill by. Ajax and Achae are pretty cool too. Ajax is a bit of a rambunctious youngling, but we get along great. Achae looks at us weird sometimes - she said to me that Iggies are wild and out of control. Anyway, I'm so glad my dream came true - I have a forever family who loves me and I am so happy! My hope is that all Seniors can find a loving forever family to spend the rest of their days with.
Thank you to Achae for letting me be a guest blogger today. You can have your blog back now. I know you have a lot to say.
Cheers, mate!
