Bridget's Diary

Dear Diary

Here I am today. Gorgeous, right?

Today I arrived at the shelter. Sammie's Friends seems like a nice place. I was running  free in Penn Valley when someone nabbed me and brought me here. Darn. No tags, no microchip. No way to find my people. So they vaccinated me and put me in a kennel with food, water and a bed. Actually, it's a pretty nice bed, and the food is good. I like it a lot. Dinner time!

I'm getting used to the noise here. These dogs yap every time someone walks in, "Pick me! Pick me!" they bark. Gives me a headache. But I join in too because I'm a team player. Plus I want someone to pick me. Why don't they pick me?

They surprised me today. I got spayed. Glad to be back on my nice bed. I'm still here. Drifting off to sleep...dreaming about having my own family...zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Was tested for heartworm today. These people seem to think being negative is a good thing. That's fine. Pick me!
I'm surprised I'm still here.

People walk me twice a day. I like that a lot. Then I go back to my cell. Wish I could mark the days off on my wall. How long have I been here? Someone please--pick me.

I love it when I get to play with my special shelter peeps. When one of them sits with me and strokes and hugs me, I become so totally relax. To show my apprecation, I look into that person's eyes and give a big, sloppy, wet kiss. 
I love Don. He takes me places.
When I first came to the shelter I was scared--I admit it--and I barked at dogs that came by my kennel. But now have five good dog friends that I have learned to trust.I am willing to sit and wait my turn for treats just like my friends do. I really so no purpose for this sit-stay stuff, but now I see how much it pleases people and I'm pretty happy to do what they ask.

I also discovered that I like, what they call,  tummy rubs. Those are really nice! Rewards!
My shelter peeps learned that my owner dumped me. I'm sad today, but I'll feel better tomorrow. My favorite people are here!

I like kids--this one's a cutie!

I'm in school. This is kinda fun. I'm pretty comfortable listening to people and being around my buddy dogs.
I'm the second from the left.

A new year. I'm still at the shelter. It's quite today. My buddies won't be here to play today. Happy New Year, they say. I hope so.

I'd write more often, but I'm still here. What can I write about?

One of my favorite people took me for a walk and made a video. You can watch me here. Pick me! 

I kiss Don right on the lips!

I'm hanging with my friends. I'd like my own family now. It's time to pick me. If you wants to take me home and you have other dogs, I'm sure I'd be fine after you give me a chance to feel safe and comfortable. Pick me!
I really like Jack. Jack and Sam, the other guy, have their own homes.

Dear Diary, I can't believe it!! I have my own home and my own family!!! I just got my new home yesterday and I can't believe it. A dream has come true for me.
