GOOD MORNING DC!!!! It’s me Toby (don’t know who I am? Check out my Page up above…the one that says Toby!), I am trying out my Radio Voice on you. What do you think? So, I have been with this lady for 6 weeks now (I call her Mom) and I am loving it! I am spoiled rotten…it’s a nice change from life on the road. Apparently I have family in Texas who sent me all kinds of toys for Christmas. I have a grandpa who likes to video chat often just so he can check me out. My Grandma keeps saying she is coming for a visit so she can meet me.
We have settled in a nice routine and I am pretty sure I am here to stay. So now I think it is time for me to figure out what I want to do with my life. I mean there has to be something beyond sleeping, playing with my toys, going to do the dog park and having my personal assistant Katherine take me for a walk.
I overheard my Mom on the phone signing us up for some dog obedience classes. I don’t really understand why. I sit, I stay, I even let her put the treat right in front of my nose and I don’t make a move to eat it until I hear her say, “Okay”. So what if I don’t lay down when you give me the “down” command. I hate that trick…it isn’t worth a treat. But apparently we are going to go obedience class. Mom said something about bonding. I also overheard a reference to Therapy Dog Training. That might be cool but I got to see what other kids are in that class. It may or may not be cool.
I do have to tell you…I have one complaint…well maybe not a complaint but a minor issue. My Mom takes LOTS of pictures of me…I mean I think she is obsessed. I am trying to not let it go to my head. I know I am handsome…I can’t help it that I was born this way. In fact, most of “my people” are good looking. So I am used to having my picture taken or having people “oh and ah” over me. But my Mom is over the top. In fact, I bet if you looked at the photos on her phone…I am in 90% of them. Here are a few I took off her phone:
