Happy Anniversary!

Lucy PuppyWoof Everyone! Can you believe we have crossed over into a whole new year and already we are starting the second month of this new year…. Time sure does fly, even in dog years!

For me this is a special month for I am celebrating a 14th anniversary. Yup, on February 6 it will be 14 years that I’ve owned my mom. I’ll never forget that day. I was pretty little, not even 8 weeks old and hanging out at a local restaurant called Lazy Wave in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Some people thought I needed a better home so they took me around, knocking on doors to see if anyone wanted me. Everyone thought I was cute but when they saw me walk they all said uh-oh, what’s wrong with the leg. Me, I didn’t know I was supposed to use all four legs when I walked. Since my one leg didn’t work too well I hopped around on the three good legs I had. Seemed fine to me but people would hand me back saying “I hope you find a good home for her”. We kept looking and one day we knocked on a door where a lady and her cat lived. An instant sister! I was getting tired of nobody wanting me so I figured I’d take things into my own paws and when this lady picked me up I burrowed my nose into her neck figuring how could she say no… But then she did! Something about not being ready for a dog, responsibility, Really! I couldn’t believe it, I thought for sure this was the one.

The next day my friends and I were going down the road and here comes the cat lady walking towards us. I didn’t know what to do so I just sat down in the middle of the road. I wanted so much to adopt this lady, and her cat, but she had to want me too. She was talking to my friends and asked if they had found a home for me yet. They answered “no, they were still looking”. All of a sudden I heard words that were magic to my little ears. The cat lady said “We’ll take her”. Really!!

That day I moved in and quickly took over (she was easy to train). You all know the rest.
