It's a Dog's Life!

So, I’ve been living with my new family for over a month now and, so far, so good!
They seem to be a really nice bunch; even the two small people like to play with me… I cannot say the same for the cat – not sure I’m on his Christmas card list just yet!
I had to stay in the house for 2 weeks when I got here, until all my injections had worked, but I was allowed in the garden and I chased the cat around a few times, which I think I enjoyed far more than he did!
Then, the great day came when I had my final injection and I was allowed out into the big wide world… Well, what a lot of things there are to see and do, when you’ve never been outside properly before!
First we went for a little walk near the house, to get me used to walking outside on the lead, but you’d be amazed how many things there are to sniff, right on your doorstep! To be honest I was a bit scared, still am a bit!!
At the weekend we went out in the car, which, by the way, is perfect snoozing time while you get to where you are going. When we arrived, everyone had fish and chips (I had a little taster myself – very nice too!) and we watched some huge metal birds taking off into the sky – think they call them planes!
After that we found a lovely doggy friendly café called Cockpit Farm Tearooms in Otley, where even I was allowed inside for a doggy treat!
This lot likes to go out, which is great because, since then, I’ve been to school with the small people, to the park, a pub, and even to the shops! Luckily my mum is a dog walker so I get to take lots of walks with other nice doggies too.
So, all in all, a very nice first month in my new house! I think I might keep hold of this lot, although the cat might end up on eBay if he doesn’t chill out a bit!
