I know everyone celebrates the 4th of July because it's Independence Day but I celebrate it for a different reason.
You see four years ago today "Mom & Dad" made it final-they adopted me. I could have told them that I was home the minute my paws touched their kitchen floor in March 2007 but it took 4 months for them to understand what I knew all along-and it took a little while for the Princess Miss Paige to accept that she was not an "only child" anymore and get used to me being around for the long haul.
It's been a lot of fun these last four years-I am still timid and afraid of people but mom says that is okay. I get in trouble for eating "stuff" mom says is not good for me-and every time I do-she just shakes her head and says a prayer I will not get really sick.
Miss Paige and I are really good buddies now-she still tries to boss me around at times & I just let her think she is when she really isn't.
Dad & I have become really good buddies especially at night time when we have our snacks together-he shares his corn curls with me and even buys a big bag that he say's are mine. I let him give me belly rubs and pet me and that makes him happy-I used to not let him touch me but I finally realized that he would never hurt me so now I am always ready for a good belly rub session.
So tonight when you are watching fireworks (I will be hiding cause they scare me) and celebrating the 4th with family and friends remember me-and when a really pretty one lights up the sky-say-Than One is for Roman-he is a happy-loved pupster now.
Thank You HRI for rescuing me and finding me that "furever" home all pupsters deserve.
