One-year anniversary

Dear humans,

I just found out something that has rocked my world - and not in a good way. All the celebrating of the last few days, the gifts and food and endless supply of wrapping paper to chew on - that was not for me? I still can't believe it. Do you believe in coincidences? I do not. You may think you celebrated Christmas, but that is someone fooling you. I don't know who (yet) - but I will find out, and there will be consequences!

The real reason for all the parties must have been my adoption day. It's on the same day, and like I said, it seems highly unlikely that this is a coincidence, right? Right. A year ago, on Christmas eve, I came home to my new parents. I have to say, I dig it here.
Literally (there is so much dirt to dig in!) and figuratively. 

My old family didn't have a computer or TV (they were Amish). I didn't know what I was missing! Not only do I enjoy a good couch session with dad, but how could I have blogged without a computer? You tell me.

But even better than that are my new siblings.
Blue was the first one I met. She was really nice. She didn't like playing with me, because she was old; she 
died last August. I don't know if mom told you guys - she doesn't like talking about it, because it makes her sad. 

Snowy and I go for walks together with mom, which is a ton of fun! I particularly like biting Snowy's leash and leading her around. She doesn't care for it much, but let's me do it anyway.

Bear was next. He was scary at first and growled at me when I tried to eat his food. But when I don't do that, he is great!

Phoebe is my best friend. We have so much fun together!

But don't think it's all fun and no work, because that's not true at all. I have several chores:
Doing dishes. 
Herding the sheep. 
Keeping an eye on the llama (she is a wild one).
Getting mom's coffee. (Trust me, you don't want to talk to her before she had her first cup.)

I also like just hanging out with mom. She's annoying sometimes (she won't leave me alone!), but also fun.
I like her cuddles! But only for a few seconds. Then it's enough. 

What I like best, though, are the adventures we go on. 
Family outings. 
Going to the beach.
Going swimming.
Meeting new friends.
Playing on the farm.
Delivering presents to my parent's friends. 

I'm a happy little Corgi, is all I'm saying. Particularly since I don't have to endure getting dressed like some other dogs - that's just humiliating. Why cover up a perfectly nice fur?

The first year was brilliant, keep 'em coming!



  1. Congratulations! Happy one year! I hope the next year is just as amazing, if not more awesome than the first! Make sure they give you lots of treats to celebrate :)

  3. I adore this and I adore you, Lily! Lots of love for your 1 year anniversary in your forever home.
    All the best for 2015 to you and your whole, beautiful family!!

    Best wishes, Danielle xo

  4. Happy home anniversary, Lily! It sounds like it was a win all the way around.

    (And I'm sad to read about the loss of Blue...pets certainly leave paw prints on our hearts and it is so hard to let them go.)
