My name is Yowie. I have been told that a “yowie” is an Australian Sasquatch. That name was given to me by Col Potter. My best friend and partner who came with me to our first CP foster home was actually named Sasquatch. H-m-m-m…. Funny names! Sasquatch or Sassie for short was the love of my life. We had a good life in our foster home until one day someone came and took Sassie away. I heard that her new family already had a male dog and couldn't take me too. I was so sad and sometimes I misbehaved because of that. Eventually I was sent to a new foster home in Missouri. My foster mom was pretty strict and tried to teach me better behavior skills. Ohhh man, that was hard. I spent a lot of time in the X-Pen. One cold and rainy day, my foster mom bundled me up and took me back to the airport. I had no idea where I was going now. There were a few mishaps along the way like when they left me sitting outside the airplane when it took off. But I got to spend that night at a really cool doggie spa. The next day, I made it on the plane and finally got off in Seattle. All I could wonder was what would happen next. Two people picked up my crate and put me in a car. OMG ….. in the car was my best buddy Sassie. We were together again. I could not believe it. Nothing could have made me happier. We got to our new forever home and Sassie helped me to be a better dog. What fun we had together. I have since lost Sassie and as sad as that is, I now have a new friend …. a cute little CP girl named Izzy (aka Yaquina). I am king of the castle in my forever home. I do share nicely with Izzy even though she steals my treats if I don't eat them fast enough. I have other friends in the neighborhood and two big parks for walking and smelling. I am considered a true gentleman in my old age of 14 years. Thank you so much Col Potter. And thank you Laurel, Robin and Suzanne for your help along my journey.
