Life in Nyack is very different from life in Tappan. We moved here in February to the third floor apartment of a big fancy house. (There are a lot of big houses here!)
My name is Sammy. I am a mix. I am part beagle and part Boston Terrier. I heard my parents say that I am a designer dog known as a Bogle. Maybe that means I am rich and famous. Now that I think about it, everyone does stop on the street and look at me.
Nyack is definitely a dog's place to live. In the house in Tappan, I didn't go out much—way boring. In my new place, I am the king. But it can be lonely during the day, all alone, without a friend. My parents upgraded my bed to King size so I can stretch out my legs and really get comfortable. (I give them a little room too at night.)
Going out took on a whole new meaning here. Every day, sometimes twice, we go for long walks. There are so many smells on the sidewalks that I can't help myself but to stop and savor the aroma. Then, of course, I add my own—because it's my town now, too.
Another great sunny day. I love these kind of days, the walks are so much fun. Just as we left our yard, we met a funny little boy named Cooper playing on his front lawn with his mom. He was so silly! He would come close to touch me and then run away!
Then we came across My Buddy N Me down the street.
Can you say awesome? I found a perfectly chilled water bowl waiting outside the store. How did they know I was coming? And that I would be thirsty?
I decided we should go in.
A mother and her two kids were in there with their just adopted Lab puppy! He was so so so excited and wanted to play with me. I was more interested in the toys.
Oh my goodness! So many toys. Good ones too. I wanted them all!
And bones and treats and oh so many smells. My mouth was drooling and I couldn't stay still. I kept running back and forth asking for everything!
The nice lady who owns the store gave me some chicken treats that just melted in my mouth! She gave the bag to my parents to keep!
By the time we made it back home the bag was already empty. My belly was so full it made some awful gurgles. So what if I got kicked out of the bed for being stinky? It was worth it!
