Drumroll, please!

Hi everydoggie! Sorry it took so long to update you guys. Mom said something or other about our internets not hooking up? In any case, I have some big news (other than some details about the new house, of course.) May I please introduce:

My litter sister, Cassie!

My humans suprised me the day we moved into our new home! Not only were there new things to do and places to explore, but someone to do all those things with! Mom and Dad had been planning it all along! You see, Cassie was taken away from her Momma when she was very young (only 4 weeks old!) and she went to live at another humans house who didn't give her the proper foods and treats and stuff (oh my gosh, NO FOOD?). AND they left her outside all day long in the heat with nothing to do. When she was about 7 weeks old, she was able to dig out of their yard. When my humans found out about Cassie, her human was trying to give her up to a kill shelter. So after woking some things out, it was decided that she was going home with us once we moved into our bigger place!!! When my parents picked her up, she was about 11 weeks and now she's almost 15 weeks old and getting bigger. It's not so easy to knock her over anymore.

She's really the best sister ever, even though she wasted no time at all figuring out how to steal my sticks:AND figuring out ways to BITE me:

(a closer inspection will show that YES, that is me she's munching on)

She and I had lots of fun exploring the new house. It's huge!!! It's got TWO big living rooms to run around in and a big kitchen (where Cassie and I stay while the humans are out) and master bedroom big enough for all of us to cuddle up in at night. And there's two other big bedrooms, too. The best part, though is the HUGE backyard where we can run around and play. Because there's a bunch of trees, there's always a variety of sticks for me to play with and munch on. Of course, our first order of business was to get REALLY REALLY muddy. No better way to celebrate than to feel the cool sensation of mud on your fur.

Then we spent some time romping around the house and supervising the unpacking of boxes and the moving of furniture. I tell you, these humans don't know how to do anything without us telling them.

Well, I should probably wrap this up. I've got a lot of catching up to do with all you doggies out there. It's been way too long since I read everyone's blog!

Mom will post some human-friendly pictures tomorrow of the house and whatnot.

Until then, Cassie and I will be waiting to hear from you!

Congratulations on the new addition to the family - Cassie is just gorgeous and your humans are so pawsome for helping her out when she needed it most!!

Looking forward to seeing more of both of you now that you've moved in :)

Oh my goodness!! She is so cute. You are super lucky to have a new sister. I love my little sister (although sometimes she is a pain). Such a sad start for her...she's so lucky to have a great new family!
