Hello! My name is ASIA and I am a big black dog! No one really knows what kind I am, but my family says that
I'm a Shepherd/lab. I am only one year old, but to me that's a really big deal, because my puppyhood didn't start out
I don't remember where I was born, or who my mommy was. I remember one day I woke up and I was in a big scary room,
with lots of other dogs, who were barking all the time, and my little borther was there too.
I was so happy when some people came and told me that I was going home! I didn't know what "home" was, but it sounded
fun! And the other dog that was with them, named "Sheba" said that she had had a home before and that they were really
My new friend's name was Sara. She took me home and took really good care of me. Except, a few days later,
I started to feel really yucky. So Sara brought me to the Doctor, and he said that I had "Parvo" and that I might die.
I didn't know what that meant, so I wasn't scared. I stayed at the hospital, and Sara came to visit me everyday.
It wasn't too bad except that I was kind of bored and really tired.
Finally I got to come home from the hospital, and everyone made a big deal over me, which was really fun! And now
I have a big brother and big sister to play with, and cousins too!
I love living with my family. They are really fun! I'm glad that Sara gave me a "home". Now I am one
of the happiest doggies in the world! Thank you for listening to my story! (and thank you Mandy for writing it
down, since I don't have thumbs!)
Merry Christmas Sara! Love Asia [my sister made Asia step in ink and put her pawprint here] and Mandy
