We were asked to so a post today about our adoption stories. However, all of our adoption stories have been told, and we didn't want to make this post read like a novel, so I thought I'd intervew my sisters about our adoptions and maybe let you learn a little about us that you might not have known before. Here it goes!
Lilac: I had my reasons! Anyway, I knew as soon as I saw Mom that she was mine. I really felt like I was home, though, after my famous Easter Candy Heist when Mom and Dad watched me even more closely than Treat and Hawk to see if I'd get sick. Even though I'd been a bit bad, they didn't bring it up and just looked after me.
Blueberry: Hmm... Well, I wasn't so sure at first, but then they took me on vacation with them. I had so much fun at the beach, and my mom was already living the life here. The lady who first adopted me didn't want me back after she had surgery, and it turned out I was allergic to her cats when they took me by for a visit. I knew that wasn't the place for me! Plus, pretty early on, I became very attached to Dad. I worried and worried for a long time that they'd send me back, but then one day Mom got a piece of paper from the adoption group president, and she said that it meant I was never leaving. I slept much better at night after that!
Morgan: Oh, I knew as soon as I met you when you came to see me! I quickly realized that all of you have no clue about how to stay together and that you needed me to look out for you and keep you in one spot. I felt like I was home from the very beginning!
Lilac: Well, I'm very fond of my fan. I like that they move it to the spot I want. I also like that I've finally got them trained the way I want. Don't any of you go messing them up!
Blueberry: I like that they can't say no to me. I don't ask for things that are extravagant, but I'm sure if I did, they'd get it for me. They fuss over me very nicely, too, and I love that!
Morgan: Oh, a favorite? That's tough! I like that Dad takes me to class, and I like hiking, and I like waking them up in bed, and I like chasing the rabbits here with Dad on the other end of the leash, and I like...
Morgan, we only have so much time here! I'm sorry, but we've got to move on. Where did you live before you came to our house? I lived on a farm in Iowa myself, and then after schooling, I went to the adoption kennel in Iowa for a couple of weeks before I came here.
Lilac: I lived a few places, but the last place I lived was on the dog farm in Kansas where I'd just weaned my last litter of puppies before getting on that hauler and driving through the cold January night to get here. I came here as a foster dog, but I knew that I wasn't going to leave, and I was right. Then again, I'm always right!
Blueberry: I was born on the same farm in Kansas, then I went to schooling, then I tried out racing in Florida, but it wasn't for me, so I packed up my collar and muzzle and came back to the farm. I traveled on the same haul with Lilac to get to Illinois, but I lived for about six months with another lady before coming to stay for a while at our house. I wasn't supposed to stay, but the longer I was here, the more I hoped I wouldn't have to go back. Now I'm so glad that I got to stay!
Morgan: As a little puppy I went home with another family, the same family that took care of you, Bunny, for a while. There were some problems there, though, and they felt that it would be better for me to live with a family that has other dogs and give me more time. I have to say, I love it here. We go on hiking adventures and Dad and I go to class and Mom plays hide and seek with me and life is just about perfect for me, as long as everybody stays together.
Blueberry: Oh, where to start? I'd like to get them some soft pillows, turn off all the alarm clocks, a million dollars and a personal masseuse! I hear people like that. Oh, and Mom wants one of those color nooks. If they'd let me in the bookstore, I'd get that for her, because she's the one who always gets Dad to let me go places.
Lilac: Suck up!
Morgan: I'd get them body alarms so if there was danger nearby, they could alert me and let me know!
Good answers! Well, there you have it, our Christmas list for Mom and Dad. I hope they don't read this and start figuring out what's going on with the magic plastic!
