Since I recently started a YouTube page that is going to include a lot of stories about my dogs, I thought having a blog here might serve to supplement that site. Besides photographs, I've documented a lot of moments with video, and telling and showing stories about my dogs has become a much appreciated distraction from my day to day responsibilities. They are always up to something, or getting into something... Or if nothing else, being cute enough to warrant a picture. My life with my chis has only just begun, I am looking forward to the adventures I will experience with them in the future.
In the case of this forum, it will be a log of events for myself if not for anyone else who might be interested in what is going on in the lives of Artie and Rook. And in my life, likely, since the three of our fates are infinitely intertwined. They are the first dogs I have owned in my life who are simply mine, and I cannot deny the excitement and often odd feeling responsibility knowing that I have these two lives who will be beside mine for years to come.
Some of the replies to this forum will be thoughts and stories. Some may be links to amusing videos I have made, or copies of entries I've written on my personal blog. While the media of these experiences may vary, they will all come back to Rook and Artie, and the enjoyment and happiness these two unlikely souls have brought into my life.
