I'm a happy accident!
I was the last pup in an "oops" litter, and I was in the clearance bin
when my parents adopted me at 12 weeks old. I scampered right over to them and said (in perfect English) "I want to be your dog! Can I come home with you?" Then I upchucked all over my new Mom, all the way to my new home. I've been her constant companion ever since, and I go to work with her every day to make sure she's doing her job right. We swim every day of summer, thanks to my mentor, Kramer the Chocolate Lab, who showed me I could swim when I didn't believe it from Mom & Dad.
