All of the other dogs were playing, barking, and running around, while I sat there in the corner looking sad and being my usual lazy and tired self. Then, Ella walked in. She saw me sitting all alone and I could tell that she fell in love with me right away. I figured if she loved me for just being tired and lazy, that this was definitely the perfect human for me. Granted, we had to convince Ella’s parents to say ‘yes’ first, but with both of us giving them our best sad puppy eyes begging, it didn’t take long until we were on our way to my new home!
When we got there and I ran in the door, I was greeted by my two new doggy siblings, Dante and Ginger. I’m a chill dog who gets along with everybody, so we became BFFs from the start and love playing and getting into trouble together. I often join in the fun when they start barking, but I’m the only one who stops when Ella tells us too, so I don’t get in as much trouble as they do.
Overall, being a pup in New York is pretty awesome. I love going to the local parks to play fetch with Ella and my siblings, being lazy in the sun in the summer, and playing in the snow in the winter are some of my favorite things to do. Also, every Saturday night, me and mom have a date to watch Pit Bulls and Parolees on TV together. Sometimes I forget that it’s just a TV and I end up trying to play with the other dogs on the show. But she just laughs and lets me do my thing - that’s why she’s my favorite!
If you ask my mom about my personality, Ella tells everyone that I’m smart and funny. She thinks I’m smart because I can do lots of cool tricks, like play dead, close the door, sit, stay, give paw, and roll over – but really, she was just a great teacher! She also tells people I’m funny because apparently, I snore a lot, make silly faces, and because my only two moods are either high bursts of energy or being really tired, I have a tendency to fall asleep with my mouth open, while sitting up, or even in the middle of chewing on a toy. What can I say? A pup’s gotta sleep when a pup’s gotta sleep.
My mom says that if I was a human, I would probably just sleep a lot, and run to the park and eat every chance I could get. But that’s pretty much what I do now anyway – minus all those annoying human responsibilities. So, I think I’ll just stick to living the good life, being a silly, cute and lazy pup here in New York with my mom, Ella, and my siblings, Dante and Ginger. Plus, my family always says that getting me has made life so much better – and I just so happen to feel the same way about them …”
