New News for Toby...

Yesterday My Raiser got a new dog tag made for me,

I thought the highlight of this new tag was it being cool and red. But today I found out otherwise.

My raiser just told me I won't be coming back home from Walk-A-Thon next week with her, instead I will be "attending" a 3 week puppy swap. THREE WEEKS?!? I will be a whole 4+ hours away from my raiser for 3 weeks :(

She tells me the family sounds really nice, and even has some children I can play with.

I told her I will "try" and be brave, try new things, and love my life... We'll see how that goes!

I'm told this puppy camp is the highlight of my getting the new red tag, though I'm not so sure I agree.

During this puppy swap my raiser will be receiving my sister "Duchess" (black lab). Since I'm going to a different puppy group and Duchess is from our group the drop off/pick up dates won't be the same. So I'm quite happy about that, maybe I'll have a day with my sister!

I will be dropped off at my "new" house on the way back from WAT in FL. My raiser will take her laptop so I can write the the WAT post on it and then she will post it when she gets home...WITHOUT ME. I'll have the blog updated by Duchess when she gets here.

The new tag was to replace the one I was wearing that said "Frankie", (my last raiser's puppy), since my last tag with my name on it was to scratched up to read.

On the plus side I am feeling MUCH better!
The vet hasn't an idea of what was bothering me, but we are all just glad I'm fine:)

Thanks soo much for you thoughts & words!

Enjoy the photos of my new tag, and have a Marvelous Monday!

This sounds like a test to see how well you do, so be brave. I think you will be fine, especially now that your tummy is feeling better.

That sounds furry exciting!

The new tag looks fur nice against your furs!

Oh no, Toby! I'm sure you'll miss your raiser a lot, but it could be lots of fun. I spend entire days at my grandmother's place sometimes without my Momma and Pops around, and it's okay.

Your stay is much longer, but you're a big dog and I know you can handle it!

Wow, that's a very long time to be separated. I hope it will go by quickly, though, and that you'll enjoy your time with Duchess.

So, you're Toby, and I'm just in time to meet you before the swap. Interesting. I'm guessing it's part of the training. Lovely tag and now I won't confuse you with my sissy, Frankie :)
