“A few weeks ago, my whole world changed. Mom & Dad put me in my crate and loaded me onto a big, scary, magical machine. At first I was scared. There was nothing around but big bags and boxes. And it was dark. There was no one around. Soon though, I fell asleep for a long time to the loud humming noise. When I woke up I was shuffled around and transported to a big building, where I was reunited with Mom & Dad. I had never been so happy to see them!
We settled into a new place and it’s great! There’s a spot outside where I can sunbathe and watch squirrels and birds. Sometimes I chase them in my dreams. The yard is full of green grass where we play fetch. I can run around and chase balls all day! Mom gets scared of the slimy creatures she calls slugs so she doesn’t like the grass. But I think they are silly and harmless.
My favorite thing to do here is explore the forest. There are so many new smells! And there are always other 4-legged friends around…dogs, horses, deer!
I love the trails, you never know what/who you’ll see and sniff. And when I get thirsty from running around and getting “the crazies” there are drinking fountains where I can share water with the 2-legged people. There are even water fountains just for me!
The 2-legged friends here really like me. I can go anywhere – into stores, restaurants, cafes, bars, trams, buses, trains, boats, even ski lifts! All I have to do is wag my tail and I’ll get a pat on my head or better yet, a treat. It’s too easy 🙂
It’s especially exciting to be on a big moving tram where I can look out the door and say hi when new friends come in. But Mom & Dad get mad if I don’t sit still. Rules, sch-mules. I’ll have you know that I’m a good pup!
Here I am doing some more of my favorite things – swimming, hiking and boating!
I had my first visit to the v-e-t here last week. He seemed nice and I didn’t get poked in the bum or anything. Instead, he gave me a treat and said I was a good boy. And since I have my international microchip and Swiss passport, I’m now registered as a Swiss pup.
Where is this wondrous new place? I hope we don’t leave anytime soon. It sure is a dog’s world here!”
