Where Do I Begin?

Well I finally figured out how to use the computer. A lot has happened over the last year. Mom and dad gave me a new home with lots of toys and lots of love. Mom and dad gave me all kinds of attention. Dad taught me how to go up and down the stairs, whew 3 floors of fun.

After a few weeks of making myself comfortable in my new digs, mom and dad took me for a long car ride. When we finally got out of the car, there were all these boats in a yard. Mom had to carry me up a ladder to checkout my new summer home "Sailor Dance". Dad was working on the boat, he's always working on the boat. I sniffed around checking everything out. I don't know who came up with the term "poop deck" but seeing that I was going to be a sailor I made my own poop deck, oops.

Over the next few months dad would take me out to the boat to keep him company while he worked on the boat. I would hangout in the cockpit and watch the ducks swimming past the boat.

This boating thing can be very tiring and the sun is not one of my favorite things either. I know all the shady spots on the boat.

As the summer progressed I got to go on some trips with mom and dad. I went to Mystic Seaport and Milford, CT. My favorite place to sleep is in the v-berth with mom and dad. My favorite thing to do on a hot summer day is play with the hose in the cockpit.

When the weather turned cooler Sailor Dance had to come out of the water and my sailing season was over. The days grew shorter and my 4 legged friends didn't come out as often.

Mom and dad play with me and try their best to keep me amused but sometimes I have to make my own fun, that's when I get into trouble. Something called the holidays rolled around and dad put up a tree in the living room. It had all kinds of shiny things and stuff hanging on it. I was warned, sniff but don't chew. One day they took me to this really cool pet store. There was all kinds of stuff there, birds and fish. I got to sit on Santa's lap.

Well now that the holidays are over and the weather is warming up I'm itching for boating season, well maybe it's this sweater that's causing me to itch.

Well thats it for now. Stay tuned for more of my adventures.

Thanks for visiting my blog Luna, what a beautiful girl you are - I like both your stripped and scruffy look, you are a doll! You sure seem to lead a charmed life on land and sea. I've never been on a boat - boy it sounds like fun. We don't live that far away, so if you want to invite us...we'll come! I think we'd have a blast.
Enjoy the warm weather...at last!

Hi Luna,

Boy, are you a cutie. We fox terriers sure are a good looking bunch. I am 6 months old and I live in the mountains of Eastern Pennsylvania.

Nice to meet you.

Lots of Koobus kisses,

Hi Luna, I met you many times while you were a puppy. I met your 4 sisters, Nova, Hailey, Thea and Poppy. Lynn and Carl Comstock of Thornton's Wires in Clermont are great friends and volunteer for Florida Fox Terrier Rescue. You have grown in to a very pretty wire!! I was with you when you received your first professional carding at Town and Country in Orlando. You were so good on the grooming table. You spent your first several months living on an amazing gentleman's horse farm with 10 acres of orange groves. Lynn has a terrier training camp set up that teaches wires to be normal dogs and well socialized. Your sire is Smithy, a retired champion from Michael and Mary Collings. I can send your puppy pixs to you when you were first born and updates. I am glad you went to live with a great wire family! Please join the Scanwyre list:
Please post more pixs and welcome to the world of blogs. Janey the Painie is one of our foster dogs living with Elaine and Buster. Lyn Townsend, Florida Fox Terrier Rescue, polpis06@mpinet.net, 407-333-0524, http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/FL271.html
