I was hungry and cold a lot. I sure was glad when the humans brought me to the ranch in Chadron. It was a scary journey because I didn’t know what was going on but when I ended up on a ranch, I was pretty happy. I mean who wouldn’t like running free and eating regularly and getting to play with other dogs? I didn’t have to scrounge for every meal. It was so nice!
But then one day, the ranch lady put me in the truck and drove me up to the PetSmart in Rapid City. And there I was, this little Red Heeler mix dog, cute as a button, just waiting for someone to love me. I mean, I am a bit of a handful because I REALLY love to cuddle. Some would even say I’m an aggressive cuddler. But what do they know? Some dogs just need to get as close as physically possible to snuggle. I mean, yes, I do use all of my body weight and full muscle strength to get as close as possible, all while I’m wagging my tail like crazy and licking you to death. But come on, who doesn’t love that? I mean, yes, you may push me away and shield your face from my tongue. But I know you don’t mean it. I know you are just kidding around. Even when you get mad and yell at me, I know, deep, deep, down, you really love when I accidentally claw your face, or step on your head, or land on our crouch and make you yell in pain. Because you know I didn’t mean to hurt you. I know, that you know, that I LOVE YOU!!
I guess laying in the squishy dog bed with your eyes closed is the way to do that. I don’t know, I’m more of a, lay completely sprawled on top of the humans and have my butt in their face, sort of relaxer. It serves multiple purposes…I get to enjoy lots of pets, stay warm with their body heat, all while watching the door to see if anything is happening. I like to stay in the know!
So yeah, that’s pretty much my story! I will be one years old in February and am really looking forward to all the fun stuff this year has in store for me. I can definitely tell it’s going to be a big year!
