Lakota – December 2007

Lakota successful pet adoption storyHi…it’s Lakota…

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve written, I’ve been a very busy girl! I’m still doing Agility, and I’ve been to one of the Seniors home. It was realy warm in the building, but I did my best to keep from panting too much. The residents there are really nice and I got lots of attention.

I now hold 19 Agility titles, and my brother Max has one, but he doesn’t do as much as I do. He’s a big guy and doesn’t like to get up on the A frame or dog walk. We’re done until next April, mom doesn’t like to travel in the winter.

We went to the cabin over the 4th of July. It was so hot in the mountains! We did a 6 mile hike into the wilderness. That was nice and cool. We did lots of swimming too. The creek water was really cold! We had a pack rat come in the cabin. Mom thought he was cute! The gal that went with us wasn’t sure about the little guy, but he made a mad dash for the door and we never saw him again. Our friends that we go to Agility trials with are the ones who came to the cabin, and Callie ant I played and chased squirrels. Callie is my best friend. She’s a Border Collie.

We went to Idaho the first part of Nov. to see grandma and grandpa and to attend our last Agility trial for the year. I like going there. I got to get up on the new sofa! Max has his favorite place on the living room floor in front of the TV. It’s so relaxing there, but grandma did get sick and wasn’t well for a few days. They bought mom a new day bed, a bit small, but mom and I manage to sleep quite well on it. Max hadto sleep on the floor on his bed, but he didn’t mind too much. He’s too big for the day bed. I chased the neighbor’s cat up the telephone pole for a couple of days and then the cat never came back. Grandma said, “job well done, Lakota”.

Dad is going to retire from truck driving this year, so we’ll get to spend more time with him. Mom says she’s not real sure about this retire thing.

I hope the toys are enjoyed by my friends. I won them at Agility trials, but I don’t play with them. I’ve never really cared for squeaky toys, but I do love a Frisbee.

All for now. Your friend,
