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.
