Hi! My name is Baby. I have been told that I am the cutest dog in the world but in the same sentence they say I'm not very bright! I'm not sure what they mean by that. Just because I run around in circles at full speed for no reason at all and I bark at things that don't exist!
I was born on a cold day in December. My mom's name is Mitsy and I had a sister. She looked just like me. I guess you could of said we were twins. No one gave us a name because my owner wasn't planning on keeping me. That all changed when Shannon came into my life! She saved me from Doggy jail!!!
The day Shannon pulled up in the driveway it was love at first sight. She loved both of us right away. I knew she wouldn't get rid of us. It was just a feeling I had.
My sister was full of life until one day she decided to play in the street. I begged her to be careful but I guess she didn't hear me because when a car came speeding down the street she didn't get out of the way. She got ran over. I couldn't believe my eyes! They kept on going. Never even slowed down. My poor sister...I sure do miss her.
The hard part was coming. Someone had to tell Shannon. My owner called her and told her of the tragedy. She must of been devastated. I know I was.
Well, I STILL didn't have a name and wasn't sure if I was ever going to get one. Sometimes they called me "Stubby" but I wasn't very fond of that one. Just because I don't have much of a tail isn't my fault! Geesh! One of the boys called me "Max" but that didn't sit well with me. I didn't feel like a Max. Then Shannon called me her "Baby" and I loved it right away. I did that run around in circles thing that I keep doing. So Baby it was.
Our family has grown quite a bit since I was born. We started out with 3 dogs, 2 puppies and a cat. Then it was 3 dogs, 1 puppy and 2 cats. Then it was 1 puppy, 3 turtles, a toad, four bunnies, and 2 cats. Then it was 1 puppy, three bunnies and two cats. Then it was 1 puppy, four bunnies, two cats and two kittens. Now as of November of 2001 it is One dog, one puppy, two kittens and a cat. If Shannon has her way there will be more added!
We had to move from our home in Arkansas and we couldn't take all of the animals so we gave them away. I was lucky that they kept me. I knew Shannon couldn't part with me. I love my new home. I wasn't sure about it at first because I now live in a fenced in yard. I'm not use to living in a yard. At our old house I could run all over the place.
We weren't here for long when we had a new addition. I just knew Shannon couldn't resist much longer without another animal. They came home one day with a puppy. He was the most annoying thing at first. All he did was bark at me. I just wanted to stomp his litte head with my paw.
I got use to him though. Now we play together all the time! It's like we have known each other forever! The only thing I don't like is he gets to sleep inside and I have to be outside all alone. They have asked me to come inside many times but I don't want to be cooped up inside!
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my life. I love living here with my family. They are so good to me and love me so much. Check back soon and see if we have any more additions!
