My first human couldn't take care of me (I'm a handful!) so my parents adopted me when I was 5 months old.
At first, I didn't like to be touched and I was scared of everything!
But they told me I could learn to surf if I wanted to, so I gave it (and them) a try, and I'm sure glad I did.
Love, affection and sand between my toes are three of my favorite things now. My big brother Mackey is helping me learn how to be a good citizen, and I'm teaching him some fun little tricks of my own.
