We took a walk down the block and back and then we went to another pet store this afternoon. Everyone oohed and aahed over me again and wanted to pet me. I feel like a celebrity and Mama Pam is really proud of how nicely I am behaving. I didn't potty once in the stores and I sit nicely to meet people. It's fun to go out and meet people. She snuck me into Target also - she put me in a big red cart. I wasn't too sure about it, but I played along. Four young girls got so excited to see me and started taking pictures of me with their cell phones. I felt very important! Everyone wants a puppy just like me!

There were a lot of noises and people to watch – I really like to watch people to see what they are going to do, they are just fascinating.
Here I am meeting Rocky, the Chihuaua... Mama Pam missed getting us touching noses - before we said hello like normal dogs. I met a Cockapoo named Roxy and two really noisy Bichon Frisees (I'm kind of glad they were in a cart, they were a little scary). Everyone said I was so soft and fluffy.
Mama Pam explained about how to say the type of dog I am.... a Keeshond, but you say it "Kayzhawnd" and most people don't know that.
I got a new collar and we also got an engraved tag for that kittie named Bromley, in case he gets out again (though between you and me I don't he's going to try that again any time soon). Two little girls came over to pet me very nicely while Mama Pam was getting the tag engraved. It's nice to get so much attention. The one thing that really scared me was these doors that opened and shut all on their own... that was just freaky!
Mama Pam also got some steps earlier today so I can get on and off the couch. I am starting to learn to use them to go up – now that she's making it worth my while by offering fries – but it's much easier to just jump off and I like how it scares the cats!
It was a big, busy day today!
Mama Pam says I was doing really well on my second day, I am learning to "sit" and "down" and I'm trying real hard to do the steps, but they are pretty scary. Mama Pam keeps carrying me when I get scared and don't know what to do.
Oh, you are wondering about the photo of the kitty? Well on Sunday he got outside when we went out so I could potty. But Mama Pam didn't know it cuz she was paying attention to me I guess. Well later when she realized that Bromley was missing she got REAL sad and upset. We went on a long walk looking for him. And later we went out in the car. Pam says I'm VERY good in the car and I behaved SO well. I didn't think it was any big deal really – I thought it seemed like a good place to try to take a nap, it was pretty relaxing, really.
But we didn't find the kitty and Mama Pam got sadder and sadder. I wanted to help but didn't know what to do. Finally, really late that night we went out so I could potty one last time before bedtime and we heard Bromley meowing! He was by those back steps (maybe they scare him, too) and Mama Pam was SO excited to find him. I am kind of glad, too, because he's the nicest to me of all the kitties. He treats me like a friend and even lets me lick him.
We all went up to bed and Bromley got to sleep on Mama Pam's bed, though I still had to be in my upstairs kennel. I don't really like it as much as my downstairs kennel, but it's ok, I guess.
There are a lot of cats here and they are fun to jump after - I think they are playing a game, so I am going to keep trying to catch them - it's a really fun game! One that seems to be called Bromley is really friendly. He and I cuddled up together on the couch. I think he's pretty neat.

Then I got brushed a little and mama Debbie trimmed my toenails. I didn't bark or anything. My sister - her name is going to be Apple I'm told – she's still barking quite a lot. That's ok with me, cuz she makes me look like a little angel. Well, ok, not when I pottied on the floor a couple of times. I'm sure mama Pam will show me how to not do that any more when I go to live with her.
Come back and see me again soon. I get to go home with Pam next week!
