Note from Skeeter 9/24
I haven’t been very good about updating, have I? Nowadays, people just don’t write letters like they used to. Now everybody uses email. Hmph!
Because I’m becoming a lot more confident around others, I’ve had a couple play dates recently. Since Halloween is just around the corner, I’ve been trying to think of what I want to be. Tux thinks we should both go as Neo from The Matrix. In this pic, we were practicing our stop action poses. Pretty good, huh?
I’m really looking forward to going to a new home where I can practice my snuggling with you, b4 the cold of winter gets here. A couple families have expressed an interest in me, but they didn’t have fences. I may be sight impaired, but I can run like the wind!
Well, I’ve gotta go, it’s time for Animal Cops. I love to see them bust those irresponsible owners. I wish they could have found mine.
Until next time,
And no, I am not going to dress up and be Skeeter, Skeeter, Pumpkin Eater!

Just a quick note to update you on my progress…
For someone who wandered along on my own, I have to admit that I really do enjoy having friends. I guess that you could say that I’m a social butterfly, just emerging from my cocoon (hey, everyone needs to be dramatic once in a while!).
I’ve been to lots of events, and have met soo many people. Believe it or not, I haven’t met a person yet, that I didn’t like. My heart thumps with pride when people talk about how handsome I am-wink wink! Honestly, you can’t tell from looking at me, that I am sight impaired. I have gorgeous eyes that follow the sound of your voice. That leads me to my next revelation…
Aye Carumba, I’m not totally blind! I can tell the difference between light and dark, and I can also see movement. I’m really a sharp fellow, if I do say so myself. In a flash, I can learn the layout of your house! I’m becoming quite self sufficient. With a few guiding words, like “careful up” or “careful down”, I have learned to maneuver all kinds of obstacles (including stairs). I’m crate trained, and when I go somewhere to visit, I don’t potty where I’m not supposed to! I love to go in the car. I crawl up into the backseat, and I lay down to enjoy the ride. Oh yea, “Life is a highway, I’m gonna ride it all night long”. Speaking of night, I wanna let you know that I am the most excellent bed buddy! I will snuggle right up next to you while you fall asleep, but then I’ll scoot over and give you some breathing room. Another thing that I’ve learned…being inside during a thunderstorm, is a heck of a lot better than being outside IN a thunderstorm! I’ve proud to report that I’ve pretty much conquered that fear. I’m also a really good listener, so you can share all of your secrets with me, and I promise that I won’t share them with anyone else.
As you can see from my new pics, I am filling out quite nicely. I probably weigh about 30lbs now.
I’m still nervous around most other animals. That comes from not always knowing what’s coming at me. I will admit to you though, that I do have a new K-9 friend. He’s a Rat Terrier. He’s full of spunk, but he doesn’t pull anything over on me. Last weekend, I played so much with him, that I think I heard him cry “Uncle” (whatever that means!).
I hope that this gives you a little more insight as to who I am. I hope that you’ll look deep in your heart, and find that empty spot that I can fill for you. ‘Til next time…
