Hi this is Trudi here (although my silly Mommy and Daddy sometimes call me Trudi Love or Baby Love). I cannot believe that is it coming up on a year that I have been in my Furever home my loving parents. Wow what an adventure it has been! I have so much to share, so I apologize for this being so long, but I have been quiet for so long and I am finally comfortable to share with everyone.

First of all, I want to say that you to MAGSR for saving me. Had you not come along, I do not know what my life would have been like and I do not want to imagine. That is all part of my past that I am trying to forget. I am now living a wonderful life in my new home and experiencing some many new things. My Daddy and I found each other at a time when we each needed the other. I never who have though in my life that someone would have needed me so much nor I needed them. What a wonderful turn of events for me, although I am still trying to understand this feeling. It has not come easy for me to accept that Mom and Dad actually loves me for who I am.   

Mommy and Daddy have been very patient and loving with me. They tell me that I take a one step forward in my progression, then I take two steps backwards. I don’t know why this happens but it does on occasion, and we all work through it together.

I have a large house to roam free in, but I prefer to stay upstairs in Mommy and Daddy’s bedroom and sitting room area. I call it my comfort zone. It has a lot of space and I call it safe haven, especially when the wind is blowing or I am hearing loud noises, I don’t like when Mommy is downstairs in the kitchen doing stuff, she makes a lot noises down there. Dad tells me that she is cooking, cleaning or running the dishwasher (whatever that means – all as I know is that those sounds bother me along with fireworks). Although I think when Dad says cooking he means that Mommy is making me my baked chicken!

I enjoy going for walks around the neighborhood (trash cans sometimes still bother me) and chasing the bunnies and squirrels in my large back yard. Although I have yet to catch one!

I have warmed up some towards Mommy and Daddy, but I am not an over affectionate one. I will occasionally sneak a quick kiss to one of them and it brings a big smile to their face. I do however love my belly rubs and will roll over and ask for a rub as one of them walk by. You can see that my personality has been coming out more and more. Mommy and Daddy sometimes tell me that I am crazy (in a kidding way), like when it is time for me to go out and I really don’t want to, I will keep rolling over on my back and asking for a belly rub or putting out my paw for a shake. I think this is pretty clever of me to gain some time to not have to go outside until I am ready even though Mommy and Daddy know it is a game we all play.

Every night at bedtime I get a treat of either frozen peanut butter in my Kong or what Mommy calls my yogi- which is frozen yogurt in a cup (and she thinks I am silly, when she calls the yogurt yogi). After my treat, I will sometimes even get up on the bed with Mom or Dad, which depends on my mood.

I have so many more stories because of all the love and happiness I have found in my home, but those are for another day. I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I am doing well. I have good days and some not so good days, but as Mommy says that is the life of a Princess, which I am (at least in their eyes).

To my Mommy and Daddy- it is not Happy Found You Day… It is Happy We Found Each Other Day!!! 

P.S. I hope my pics come through OK as Mommy was trying out a new pic app :)
