Hi, it’s Chappy. I haven’t visited gram’s blog in awhile and since today is my 11th birthday she invited me to write a post. Here goes.
This is where it all began… me with my brothers and one sister all smooshed up against our dog mom Tawny.
This is mom and dad… Tawny and Buddy. I’ve been told I look more like my mom and have her sweet disposition…but I’ve got some of dad’s sense of fun in me too.
This is my mom, Deb. Oops, I’m skipping ahead here, I wanted to tell you about our first day together. Well , not all of it, some of it was traumatic but that’s for another post someday.
After I said goodbye to Tawny and Buddy we began our long trek across Pennsylvania to New Jersey. You can see I was already in the driver’s seat.
I caused quite a ruckus when we stopped at McDonald’s for lunch. I had no idea I was so cute and I certainly had no idea what wonderful smells and tastes were out in the world. Talk about excitement, I actually stayed awake for awhile.
Finally after days on the road, well it seemed like days to me, what did I know about cars and roads and big noisy trucks that kept waking me up. Mom says it was more like 6 hours… in puppy time that IS days. Good thing I was so rested ’cause when we got home look at all the toys waiting for me… I couldn’t believe it. The six of us siblings had one toy and one tennis ball to play with, I was in toy heaven.
Just look at me… sweet, adorable, just a hint of mischief in my eyes. Yup, I picked the absolute best mom and family in the world. But enough of the mushy stuff.
The pictures below weren’t my idea… gram snuck them on here when I wasn’t looking. Really, I have no idea how they got here but go ahead and enjoy them… I like the ones of me with mom the best. Okay, bye for now, Chappy signing off 🙂
Happy 11th birthday Chappy 🙂
