A dog's life...

Let me catch you up on everything that's been going on since I came home 4 weeks ago. The first few days with my mom and dad, they kept calling me "cute" and "adorable" and my mom wouldn't stop giving me kisses!

When we got home, I met my new sister, Lani. She was kind of funny looking and she didn't like me very much. After staring at her for a little bit, I realized that she wasn't a dog but. . . something else.

A few days later, Mom took me to a place called "the vet's." It sounded a little scary, but all the people that I met there were so nice! They put me up high on a big shiny table and fed me a bunch of treats while they poked and tickled me all over. This "vet's" isn't too bad of a place.
Everyday I grew and grew and before I knew it, my parents stopped calling me 'little guy' and started calling me 'big boy'. It seems like I was learning something new every second! I even learned how to help Mom with the laundry. . .

My mom says that I'm about to be 3 months old (whatever that means) and that I'm getting more and more handsome every day that passes. Lani and I get along a little better now, but she still doesn't like it when I try to play tag with her. Sometimes, she teases me by jumping up to places that I can't reach and then makes funny 'meow' noises at me. Other times she just hisses and it hurts my feelings. But I really like it when we play together and when she lets me walk up to her and give her kisses. I think that one day she's going to be my friend. I've gone back to the "vet's" a couple of times now and my mom says that I'm "protected" from getting sick. She said that I'm allowed to go to the park and maybe go for a swim! I'm so excited about everything and I can't wait to make some friends!

Hi there!

My name's Orion and I'm a smart, young, and very handsome Labrador Retriever. Though I may look pure white, I'm actually a very very light yellow or cream. I was born on February 13, 2007 in Bellville, Tx. One day, two people came to visit me and my EIGHT sisters. They were very nice to me and and told me that they would be back in a couple of weeks to take me to my new home. Before I knew it, they were back again. They told me that they were my new Mom and Dad and that my name was Orion. After a long ride in the car, I arrived at a pretty neat place! I wasn't too sure about my new home or my new people at first, but pretty soon I realized that they loved me and would take care of me. My mom thinks I'm such a good boy that she even lets me use her computer to narrate this blog! I'm using it to chronicle my time growing up: the things that I do, the things that I learn, and the things that my parents learn along the way. I hope you enjoy and maybe learn some things, too! I'll be posting new entries every week or so and anytime I have something interesting to tell you about.

Talk to you soon!
