It's about time!

I just had my first birfday and I thought it was high time I started a blog. Actually, my sissy, Asta -- who anyone who reads dog (and cat) blogs knows -- was the one who thought it was high time. So here goes.

This is how it all started.
Last October, I traveled all the way from Norf Carolina to my forever home in New York City. It was a pretty scary trip as the pilot wasn’t exactly what I was expecting, if you know what I mean.

My human mom introduced me to everyone.

As soon as I found out I had a sissy a few blocks away (well pretty close), I just knew I would be fine in the big city. In fact, I got to stay at my sissy's house every day in the beginning, 'cause my mom works, and I needed to go out to pee a lot in those first momfs. Asta's mom, aunt Ami, was really patient even when Asta and i got a little too "wired". Here's a photograf of my sissy teaching me to wait nicely at the door before tearing through the apartment for some wild and crazy zoomies. On your mark...

Mostly for the past year I've just done what all regular pups do:



Read the New York Times

All that's history now that I'm all growed up (Except for the Times part. And the play part. OK, and the sneep part, too). Guess I'm just the same now as then, only more mature, hehehe.

Luv to everyone.

    Welcome to the blogs! I'm sure you're going to have loads of fun friends in no time at all. And what adventures you'll go on! Better rest up!

  3. Dear little Duffy,

    We wanted to hurry right over (before Fergi leaves town) to wish you a warm and happy welcome to doggieblogland! We've enjoyed getting to know you through Asta, and now we can really know you firsthand! You were a darling puppy (sort of made Fergi misty eyed.... thinkin about all her pups) and you are one handsome yearling now! Your legs remind us of a young colts (just like mine - Jake's). All the better for runnin' zoomies with, ya?

    We've got some last minute weekend stuff to do, so that's all for now. But be SURE and stop by and see us. We're sort of family now, ya know?

    Love ya bunches,
    Jake and Fergi

  30. Hi Duffy,
    You are very cute. We love reading about Asta and all of her adventures, and now we are so excited about meeting you and your adventures. Oh by the way, people will say that Laci is not very nice, but she is a nice little girl. Also, she might come on a little bit strong, but she really just wants to be your friend. She is not a Beast as some would say.
