I can't remember much about my early months … somehow at around 6 months old I ended up in the pound and after 8 days my family hadn't come for me. Pam was going along the adoption kennels giving all us inmates a pat and a yummy treat. When she came to my pen I thought she looked friendly so I snuggled into her lap, looked up at her with my big brown eyes, and put my paw up on her leg. For some reason she decided that maybe having 3 dogs would be OK after all and took me home.
Jarrah, a very handsome red & white border collie, and I hit it off from the start and spend the day playing together and chasing each other. He is my hero even though he is a sloppy drinker and I sometimes have to help clean him up and even floss his teeth. Whiskie, a border collie x kelpie, took longer to accept that I was part of the family but now we get on really well especially when she puts her foot on my head and I get to lie down and be submissive.
I love playing and can't help myself from coming back for more … and more … and more. That's why Pam called me Bungee. I'm also good at bouncing off things … Pam wasn't so keen when I discovered I could bounce off the top of the kennels into the fernery … the green things in those pots are great to toss into the air, sneak up on and attack.
Best of all, I have been able to go along to Croydon Dog Club, make lots of new friends (and I know that every dog and person can't wait to be my friend!), and discover all sorts of new ways to please Pam. The heeling stuff was good fun but now I have started something even better … it's called "flyball". I haven't figured it all out yet but it seems to have something to do with tug toys, running, jumps and tennis balls … main thing is that I have an ace time with my best mates, Maggie, Lexy, Rusha, Ruby, and Brandy. Whiskie says she knows all about flyball and is going to give me some hints once I get ready to go to competitions … whatever they are.
Anyway, thanks for being my friend (even though I haven't met you yet) and do come and check out flyball for yourself. Life is just so full of good things!
