This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. I hope you will be patient with me, because I am just learning. About everything. Brickle told me that it is our job to talk to all of our friends every day right here. And well, I’m just learning what a friend is. What’s your name, friend?
I smiled for the first time in my life yesterday. It came on quite suddenly.
I had a full belly. The Sunshiney was out…that’s what Brickle calls it. And I realized that there was a whole world out there that was good. And comfortable. I learned that I have a bark. And there are many things to bark at.
I also learned that my name was not “This Dog” like they called me at the shelter jail.
I learned I had a new name. Boy Person picked it out. And he even made me a song.
Do you know why you have your name? Brickle told me everyone has a name. And I think that’s so nice.
I found out there is something called fruitcake made up of many, many things. And many, many colors. And speckles. And it is sweet. Like me. I have many colors. I’m many kinds of dogs.
And raccoon? Girl Person told me that there is an animal called a raccoon. And that animal likes trash. And when they met me at the shelter jail, I tried to get in the trash can. I sure did.
I hope you like my name and I hope you like me. I’m ready to start a new life. I’m ready. But I also have to say that without Digby Pancake I would still be at the shelter with 600 other dogs. And I thank him. I’ll thank him for the rest of my life. This is his home. His persons. His friends too. And I’ll talk about him as I learn more about him. Every day.
I’m still resting from my surgery I had a few days ago. I’m still trying to get used to all of this. I’ve already found the couch though.
I don’t know what an RV is. I just know it’s home. I don’t know what camping is. Or traveling. Or what a treat is. I don’t know how to sit or speak. But guess what? I already know how to write a dog blog. And. It’s nice to meet you. I’m Fruitycake The Raccoon.
