I am 8 months old now and growing like a weed. My mommy and daddy took me on my first vacation this week and I had a ball. We stayed at some place called Gaylord Opryland. It was fun and got to see alot of neat stuff. We swam, went to the spa,saw thousands of different people.We then went to this huge mall and ate at some place that had fish,elephants,and a gorrilla in it. The higlight of the trip though was picking up my very first puppy. The friend of my dads that gave him to me actually let her ride an airplane to come see us. We went to the airport to pick her up which was another first. It was a ball. The flight was delayed 2 hours which my dad said was to be expected. So we sat in the airport and I watched all these different looking people walk by. There was some big music festival going on called Boonura are something. I heard daddy tell momma to keep a close eye on me because some of the people were scary Then it finally happened and I got to meet my new best friend. She is great. Her name is Lucy. She is a golden retriever. We played for about 30 minutes and then she slept in my lap the whole ride home. I love her so much and daddy told me that he thinks every kid should have a dog to grow up with. Anyways I have to go. I will keep you all updated of our life together.
