Introducing Mr. Barker

My whole name is Iggy Piggy Barker,
but you can call me Iggy.

As an explanation of why I haven't introduced myself until now, I will just tell you that I like to take new things sorta slow...like the other day I got a new bed in my crate, and I decided that I shouldn't touch it for at least 24 hours...no sense in rushing into things if you ask me. This is me 14 months ago...



and this is me now...
Every morning I wake up really early, just before the sun and I peek one eye open to see if I am still in my cozy bed in my new life and when I see that I am, I am so happy that I get up and do a little dance in my crate...it makes the people here think I need to go outside and pee. I don't have to pee, I am just glad that California isn't a dream.

Mr. Barker: Just a quick note to say HELLO and WOOF WOOOOF WOOF (you remember the code, don't you?) Glad to see you're doing well. Just remember that humans do get lazy from time to time so they're counting on you to get them out of bed as early as possible (including weekends!). Take care!

It's great to meet Mr. Barker. It's amazing to see how much darker he's gotten as he has grown older!

Hi Iggy -

It is great to meet you.

Your life in CA is not a dream and it may take some time (maybe a long time) before you know that in your heart, but you have some patient people in your life who will wait with you as long as it takes.

Look forward to hearing more from you ....
