Dear OBARR Friends,
I wanted to send you another update on how things are going here in Pittsburgh. Every day I am feeling more relaxed in my new home. I love sleeping in bed with my family! We wake up in the morning and I try to catch their hands under the comforter! It's a lot of fun! Today, I played with my toy for the first time with Amanda. It was really fun to chase it around the house. I've started sleeping on my back sometimes (which makes me snore, but such is the life of a short nosed canine!). I go for car rides all the time, and I listen to my leash commands very well. I really love meeting other dogs, and was really happy when my the neighbor dogs Mia and Moe, invited me over for a play date at their house! Can you believe they are smaller than me!? They only weigh 7lbs each! Because we walk at the same time in the morning and evening, I am getting to know all the neighbors. All the grandpa's really love me. I think they are great too. The cats Itchy and Boshi are really starting to relax around me. Sometimes, Boshi and I even sit next to each other. I still take a lot of pride in my home, and only go potty outside. I am still pretty quiet, but when someone knocks on the door, I make sure to alert the family with some barks and growls. I am just trying to protect everyone.
Live here sure is different, but its good. I have already been to 4 different restaurants that allow dogs in their outside seating areas. I have also gone to see Jazz music live under the stars, and gone to ballet in the park. I don't know if I care so much about whats going on on the stage, but I sure do love getting to meet some new friends. Oh! I have a funny story to close my letter. When we were at the ballet, a nice lady came up to use with a very old but nice chihuahua. She was a newly rescued dog too, so we bonded right away! Unfortunately, my new friend thought Kevin's shoe was the perfect spot to go potty. So she did it right there. Amanda laughed, and thank goodness Kevin likes dogs!
I also went camping last night. It was fun and I stayed warm in my blankets. Seeing fire was scary at first... maybe it's the first time I have seen it... but it was fun to smell all the new smells out there.
Attached are some pictures of me having fun!
Car Ride! Camping! Jazz in The Park!
LIFE IS GREAT!!

Luke after with a wonderful letter
from his forever home.
Elsie then Elsie now w/ her sister DINAH-mite
Shortly after Elsie arived at her new home we recived this e-mail from her. It was to good not share with everyone.
The ride to my new home was uneventful. I went right in the car, and claimed
that crate as mine, and settled right in. Pat was surprised to see how
slight I am. Since neither my harness or new collar fit, we stopped at a
pet store on the way home for some new accessories. I met my new housemate
while we were both leashed. DINAH-mite and I have had a few harsh words.
She is a feisty one. I hear she is not feeling too well today. She seems to
be limping a little. I hope she feels better soon. Out in the yard, Pat
sat in a chair with DINAH on her lap. I like curling up under the same
chair close by. I keep Pat leashed to me most times. I want to make sure
that there is no trouble during the transition. We have all had play time
in the yard together, but I am not sure what to do with a ball. We even
went for a short walk through a part of the yard that Pat called "neutral
territory". We all got along pretty well then. The food is pretty good.
The menu included Science Diet Nature's Best lamb and rice formula. I even
had rice cooked in homemade chicken broth to spice it up. Honestly I did not have any leftovers. A few friends have stopped by for me to check them
out. Then we all took a nap this afternoon.
Life is good. I think that I am going to like it here.
Hey I thought that I was told I had all my shots already. I heard Pat say that after I am all settled in we are going to the vet for my wellness check. She mentioned I needed one more shot for Lyme disease. Hey I don't even eat citrus fruits, so why do I need a shot to protect me against limes?
