This morning was beautiful. The sun was shining, and from the window, I could see the neighbor’s cat playing in the field. My food was waiting for me when I woke up, and after a great meal we went on a car ride.
The ride was so long, I decided to take a nap. When I woke up, I was terrified! I wasn’t home, I wasn’t even in my bed; rather, I found myself in a cage!
I was in a cage! Wow, what a letdown. No goodbyes, no kisses, just a short nap and I am in a cage. Kind of makes you wonder!
The cage was sitting on a large table, along with all sorts of packages and luggage. A tall man came over and took the cage I was sitting in, and loaded it on a plane. I was so scared I think I may have passed out.
When I came to, I hoped that this was all a bad nightmare and that I would be safe and sound in my old bed. I was wrong, boy was I wrong!
When I opened my eyes, I was still in the cage, but strange people were peering into the cage, using silly words like “awe” and “cute”. Just then the door to my cage was opened and a stranger’s hand came in and took me. I was so scared!
The stranger wasn’t all that mean after all. She was a very pretty lady who took me into her arms and cuddled me. There were others there as well, one of them even took my picture. The lady and her man then took me outside so that I could pee. God knows I needed to pee! They praised me for peeing, and cuddled me again. Maybe this wasn’t so bad after all.
I got to go for a long car ride again, and this time we stopped at a beautiful house in a large green yard. There were others there as well, and we all played together. I had another pee and even a poop, and again I was praised. They called me by a different name than I was used to, but hey, if you get praised for pooping, who really cares what they call you?
I think I am going to like it here, I think I will stay!
Meet Marley. Marley is an 11 week old Sheltland Sheepdog that we adopted from Shelhaven Shelties, a kennel from Rawdon, Nova Scotia. Marley arrived on the 4:30 flight and we were there to take her home. I imagine she will be the topic of many blog posts.
