Fridays With Jake - From behind the nose
Mom let me ghost write a time or two and I have been begging for my own spot ever since. I got really excited when she put my picture up last week for "Wordless Wednesdays". I sure got some nice comments - thank you.
The family and I had a rough lesson in patience during my adoption process. Let me take you back:
I first laid eyes on my family in January of 2007. I knew from the moment they walked by the cage that was my family. I just had to convince them of it, dad was saying something about getting too big when he walked by.
You see - I am a rescued pup. I don't remember how I ended up at the Capital Humane Society but that's where I met my family. Don't take me wrong, they were very good to me but I wanted what every pup wants - a family of my own.
Back to the story, I was invited in to the "Get Acquainted" room to be introduced to what I was hoping was my new family. They were very nice and I just wanted to play with all of them at once. While I was playing with Big K I accidentally scratched her and drew blood (what ever blood is) but from what I gathered is wasn't good. I heard mom trying to tell them it wasn't my fault but they said something about policy and a waiting period.
I was put back in my kennel and they put something on my door. No one came to visit me and then I got sick. One of the kind people from the shelter loved on me and scratched me behind the ears. Then they put a lead on me and they said something about Puppy Foster Care until I was better. I was hoping they were taking me to the family I fell in love with - but they didn't.
In dog time it seemed like I was in puppy foster care forever. I felt like I would never see my hopeful family again. Then one day they took me back to the shelter where I found "mom". She was there waiting for me and took me to my new home.
And that is where I have lived for the last 2 1/2 years. Well got to go, mom says this is too long already. Blog with you more next Friday. Have a great weekend.
