More from Miss Nova

Hi my new friends. Last night was the first night in my new home. It was very, very quiet, except for the sirens (brush fires in the neighboring town--Mom). I slept in my crate downstairs, and slept all night. I was so tired after all the excitement yesterday. This morning Mom got up before the sun and took me out of my crate for a walk. We walked around the yard, and she gave me a drink. Then Orion was up so we went for another walk with Orion. I was very nervous, but I find Orion's presence very calming, and when he's around I know I have nothing to be nervous about. Mom took us in, and then Dad took me out, where I went potty, then we came in and I was served a delicious breakfast. Now I am napping with Orion.
As for me, I am four years old and all black. I came from a very nice home where I was very much loved, but I just was not happy. I had been a show dog, but I did not like it. I was also a Mom, but didn't like that job either. What I really wanted was to be someone's pet. My loving family knew this, so they set out to find me a home where I would be an inside dog, preferably with another newf. See how wise they were? I'm still uncertain about all this, I don't know what is expected of me, but I do know that Orion is very spoiled and gets lots of treats, toys, and pats, so I think I will like to live like he does.


  1. Dearest lovely Nova-Keela
    I'm looking forward to more posts about your new life. We have so much in common, because I, too, have a new life. I had a couple of wonderful loving homes, and I actually didn't mind being a show dog (did pretty well at it, if I do say so myself). But that was not my destiny. Get your mom to write more soon. I want to know how you are getting along with Wet! (He looks just like my two kitties, Prima and Fina).


  2. Oh my goodness how did I miss this? Welcome home Nova!

  3. Glad things are working out for you, Nova. I am Tommy, a small furry cockapoo with floppy ears and a short stubby tail. I too found a good home after very humble beginnings. You can visit me at tommythecockapoo@blogspot.com.

    I enjoy blogging. It is what I do most of the day when my parents are away.

    Love & Licks,

  5. Hi Nova, me and my brother found our forever homes too. But we dont get what "show" means. Show what? Anyway, my brother came after me, and I had to show him the ropes, just like the Count will show you. Sounds like you are going to have lots of lovies at your new home. Glad to meet another BIG DOG! Sasha, the princess-- BARK!
