So, Mom got a message on Sunday from her oldest daughter, Becky, with a cryptic subject line..."We did something today..." She seemed really curious, and a little nervous, so I stood right by her while she opened the message and read it. She gasped, then shouted out, "WooHoo!!". Then she seemed all mushy, with "ooh"s "oh, my"s. By this point, I was really wondering what it was all about, so she showed me -
|This is apparently what a cousin looks like|
The shelter said this guy's name is Milo, his old mom brought him in there because she couldn't take care of him. Wow, she must be sad. He's only one and a half years old, and he likes everybody. I'll bet he's going to love me!! Anyway, they filled out all the papers and stuff, met some really nice people there, and then drove home - with lots of goodies for him and information for them to be good pet parents.
There was a stop at the store, to pick up some things he might need, like food and bones, then finally to his new home.
Once at the house, he got a tour of where he'll be living now.
He even got a bone!
All the excitement made him really tired, so he finally relaxed and took a snooze.
All refreshed, it was time for a first visit to the park.
To celebrate a new life, they gave him a new name, Vedder. Mark's really crazy about someone called Pearl Jam.
Becky and Mark are going to be happy; they both grew up with animals, and have felt lonely without any.
I think Vedder is going to be happy, too, don't you?
As for me...I just can't wait to play with him! Happy Gotcha Day, Vedder!
