Hello there! My name is Dex, well, Dex Allder Cane. Last Thursday, four of my friends and I officially graduated from a nine week camp where we went through obedience training in order to help us pass the Canine Good Citizenship test. I hate to brag but Sunny (Bailey) and I graduated top of our class as we seem to have perfected the commands our trainers taught us which include: sit, down, let’s go, shake, bed, heel, and many more! While I was excited to graduate, I missed my brother Oly and wished that he could have been there graduating with me.
After the graduation ceremony, Nona and Melissa picked us up and took us to meet Scott, Aunt Kim (I’ll explain that one later) and Amy in Perry so they could bring us back up to Atlanta to our forever homes. It was a long ride but I was a good boy and slept the whole way back. I think I surprised my Aunt Kim with my good behavior because one the way down I really wanted to ride in the front seat next to her to give her company. However, I have learned that the front seat is for people only. I promise I was just trying to be a gentleman.
Saying bye to all of my friends was a little tough because we have been on a long journey together but I was very excited to see where my foster mom was taking me and she also promised me the whole way home that I would get to see all of my friends and Oly (did she say Oly!) at meet and greets, fundraisers and on many other occasions so to not worry. What a relief! Anyway, at about 9 o’clock we pulled up to a house. I was ready to get out of the car, that’s for sure! We went into the back yard and to my surprise, there were two black greys waiting to meet me! Yes I thought…new friends! I introduced myself and then they introduced themselves to me and told me their names are Cotton and Candy. They gave me a tour of their home, showed me my crate, and told me that they would share their beds with me and that I could also play with their toys. Score!
I am adjusting very well, I will have to admit. When I need to go “hurry” (potty) I just walk up to the back door and they let me out. I get to nap on comfy beds with the girls and also play with lots and lots of fun toys. I have a big backyard to run around in, although I’m playing it safe for now! I am still trying to figure out a few things like this huge bright light that has sound coming out of it? Cotton and Candy tell me it’s a television but I still don’t get it.
Okay, I’m worn out…it’s naptime! I’ll be back later to tell you more!
Slurps and kisses for now,
Dex Allder Cane
