One Year with the Kapp Pack

Today is a very special day for me, Sunshine Meadow. Today is the anniversary of my Gotcha Day. The day that Kelsey Ann went to the bridge, I was brought in as a stray at the Humane Society of Lebanon County. That was a Wednesday. On Saturday, I met the bipeds who would be my new family when they brought a food donation. I wasn't allowed to go with them that day since I had only been in the kennels for two days, but on Sunday I was eligible for adoption. They were there waiting for me when the place opened and I went to my fur-ever home.

I met Canyon (Sky too, but couldn't find a picture from my first day)

Biloxi was staying with them at the time in foster care. He didn't want to share "his" toys.

I found my favorite perch. Because I had a habit of sitting on furniture with muddy paws, no doggies are allowed on furniture anymore. Mom and Dad recently spent lots of money to have the muddy pawprints cleaned and I had to learn to stay off furniture. Good thing I'm a fast learner.

Here I am learning to drive. The little biped is trying to explain the intricacies of stick shift to me. Now, I'm quick at learning, but how am I supposed to reach the pedals and see out the window. I also can't figure out how to grab the gear shift with no thumbs.

Here I am finding dirty dishes.

I've done a whole bunch of fun things over the last year. Mom and Dad are really good at spoiling my fun though. There is a fridge lock; food is now stored in the garage; no dogs on furniture anymore; special Meadow proof fence in addition to the 6 foot chainlink. But, I've thoroughly trained them new tricks... Everydog gets an ice cube whenever the freezer is opened; food dishes can be used as frisbees; the little biped likes kisses to wake her up; no water in my dish - that's OK we'll drink from the toilet; a girl needs a BFF, better adopt a puppy for me.

Well, 1 year down. Many more to go. Lots of stupid human tricks for me to teach.

Butt wiggles, Meadow
