I was adopted from my rescue home in Virginia on tax day and taken to my new forever home in Maryland. My new human had a friend drive while I laid in the backseat with my new forever mom, AP. I was a little nervous but AP started singing to me and I soon fell asleep.

When I woke up we were at my new house that has a big back yard and had been Tonka proofed. AP spent a whole week making sure the electric cords in the house were wrapped in a tough plastic and that the back yard was all fenced off with plastic fencing so I couldn't get into anything that might hurt me. She cut all the tree branches that were down low off so I couldn't get poked in the eye and put fresh cedar mulch around all the trees so I could feel and smell where they were. All the objects with corners in the house were scented with vanilla and a carpet runner was put down from my crate to the back door.

After checking out my yard and my new crate we were off to meet the vet. I don't think anyone had ever seen a puppy before because they were all fussing over me. I met Dr. Woodburn and he looked in my eyes and ears and listened to my heart and looked at my belly where I had my hernia surgery. He said I was A OK and would see me again real soon for shots.

When we got home I had a hard time with the steps but the house has a ramp so I can go down the ramp out the side of the house and get to the back yard. I think I am going to like it here.

My First Operation

This is me before my surgery - I was not only born with bad eyes but I had a hernia that had to be repaired before I could be adopted. Pitiful looking aren't I.
