Hi! I’m Twilight. You may have already heard about me. I’m the newest member of the Dorr family!
My new mom and dad adopted me from a rescue group, so I’ve been living in a nice home with other dogs all along. I’m lucky. I’m half Border Collie, and we’re not completely sure what kind of dog my bio dad was, but my doctors have guessed he might have been a Lab. This combo means I’m sweet, smart, and have cute ears. I’m not trying to brag; I’m just stating facts.
The rescue group called me Brach’s, like the peppermint, because my bio mom’s name is Peppermint Pattie. All my brothers and sisters had minty names, too. My new mom and dad didn’t love my old name, so they renamed me Twilight. Before you ask, my name has absolutely nothing to do with vampires, but apparently it has a little to do with some pony who has a star on her hiney. I have a white star on my chest, so it totally makes sense. I like my new name because I’ve never met another pup — or human — with the same name.
When I first came to my new home, the bigger dog made me a little nervous, so I hugged my new mom really tight while she held me out of the other dog’s reach. Once the other dog stopped trying to sniff me and get in my bubble, I was ready to play! We didn’t stop for hours, and ever since then, we play every day until she gets tired. She’s a little old.
There are other things in this house, too. They’re not pups like me, but they do have four legs and tails. Whenever I try to play with them, they make an awful noise and swat at my nose, but they won’t actually play. I think they like me, because they rub up against me when I’m sleepy.
I’ve already had another vet visit, even though I’m only 3 months old! I have mange right now, so I’m really itchy and I’ve lost some fur. My mom and dad and new doctor are giving me medicine to fix it, and my skin is already a little less itchy. The doctor says I got this from my bio mom. I’m not loving my new look, but Mom says my fur and my white star will grow back in no time.
I’ve already learned to sit, stay, give my mom my paw, and I know words like “kennel”, “upstairs”, and “up”. I’m pretty much potty trained, but sometimes I can’t hold it long enough for my mom or dad to let me out! I wake my mom up really early every morning to go outside, and because I’m HUNGRY. I’m a growing pup!
Are there any other dog bloggers on here? I’ve seen the one on TV but I can’t seem to find his website.
