I'm in!!!

Yesterday was a big day.  Mom and dad took me back to Petsmart.  I saw all my old pals there.  I thought I was going back in the pen for sure.

But then...mom sat down and signed a whole bunch of papers.  Then dad took me shopping for a new harness, just for me.  I have a new name, Oliver.  It makes my tail wag!

And then we left the store.  As a family!  All my hard work paid off!

Playing nice with Grete's toys.

Those sad "please keep me" eyes.

But I think it was this kiss that sealed the deal!  I know the real decision maker in this family. 

I've only  been here a little less than a week and it seems like I've always been here.
