They’re both bigger than me, but I’m faster! I haven’t figured out why they like chasing after tennis balls and Frisbees so much, but I have to admit, it looks fun and I might try it one of these days.
We spent the first week that I was here figuring out the way things work—every family’s different you know. But I’ve been surprised and really happy to learn that my new folks are just as nice as the first ones. They also let me know that I have to listen, sit for treats, and go outside when they say. (I still don’t like doorways, but that’s getting better.)
I sort of surprised Foster Dad one day, by hiding in the egress window well. He looked everywhere! When he found me, he just picked me up and lifted me up out of there. I tried hiding there again the next day. That afternoon, a wall mysteriously appeared around that window well.
Both of the folks always talk softly to me and pet me every chance they get. Wow, what a life! I’ve even started following them around the house and cuddling up, because I know they’re going to scratch my belly and let me sit next to them on the chair. They seem to watch Twins games a lot and I really like baseball, too!
Have I mentioned that I can be a little shy? Well, I’m working on that, too. And as I've gotten used to things, I've really started having fun and enjoying life in Minnesota. Charlee and my new foster parents are just like what I will need in my forever home:
- a family without kids,
- a fenced-in yard, and
- a calm resident dog to show me the ropes
So, now I'm looking for a new family to welcome me into their lives full time. Let's get together for a visit soon!
