My people

Hi doggie friends!

So everyone has been introducing their families lately, so I wanted to introduce you to my people.

My dad is an orchestra conductor. He waves a little stick in front of other people, who are playing instruments. Once, I ate his stick, and he was REALLY mad!!! He just graduated from school and is starting to find jobs. It's nice because he gets to stay home and study his music books a lot, and sometimes we go nice places together. He likes to take me hiking and in the woods. He likes computer stuff too. He says there is a famous conductor named "Lenny" like me - Leonard Bernstein.

My mom works at the university where my dad went to school. She is a musician too - she plays the flute (I sing along with her when she practices!). Sometimes she plays with some orchestras around here. She used to work at a flute company in Boston, but we had to move here so my dad could go to school. I think she misses Boston a lot. She has just starting running in the past few months and I am her pawsonal trainer. She also likes to sew, but she is nowhere near as talented as Butchy and Snickers' mom is. She made my comfy beds for me.

My parents have been married just about 4 years. They knew I was the perfect dog for them, because my birthday is their anniversary! I used to live with an older man and lady who called me "Skippy." They had to start taking care of their little grandkids, and the man traveled a lot, and I did too much terrier-izing for them. So they had to give me up, and on January 2, 2004, I went to live with my new humans. They take good care of me and I know they love me a lot.
