My sweet Disco turns six today. He lives a spoiled life, but that’s okay. All dogs deserve to be spoiled. Enjoy the photos we took this morning and be sure to keep reading for his personal message he asked to post.
My mom asked me what I wanted to do today to celebrate my birthday. I’ve had some great parties in the past, but this year I thought I would talk a little about where I came from.
There’s this place here in Dubuque, Iowa called the Humane Society. It’s filled with lots of dogs, cats, birds, snakes, and bunnies who are waiting to find a new permanent home. Not quite sure what the circumstances were in which brought me there. I was so young that I vaguely remember. I was given food and shelter and sometimes people would come take me for a walk.
Then one day I was picked up by this man (my new dad) and taken to his house. I was given tons of squeak toys and a nice warm bed. Although I preferred to sleep with my new mom and dad in their bed. I was introduced to some new kind of food (table scraps). Yummy, but that was short lived and it’s been kibble ever since.
I’m a mixed breed and I don’t know who my birth parents are. I’m no different from other dogs.
It’s been six years since I came to my home. I like saying that…..”my home”. I also have two brothers that I share the house with. We fight from time to time, but that’s what brothers do. We test our mom’s patience here and there, but all for fun. I enjoy going for walks with my family and watching tv. My favorite pastime is listening to music. It’s very soothing and often puts me to sleep. I’ve been told that’s where my name comes from.
If your looking to adopt a pet of your own check out the local shelters in your area. There are several animals there waiting for their forever home. If your not looking for a pet but would like to help the shelter in some way, become a volunteer. You could also donate supplies that they use on a daily basis.
None of this would of been possible if my dad wouldn’t of been looking for a dog on the internet. He found my puppy picture and then we met later that day.
Okay, it’s time to celebrate my birthday and cause some havoc in the house. Here’s a couple more pictures that my mom took of me today. Enjoy!
