Hello World!  My name is Lefty.
 I am a 5yr. old labrador retriever. I was born on January 5, 2004 and live here in beautiful Colorado. I had a wonderful mother her name is Dakota (of  Cherokee Meadows) who raised me for awhile with the help of a very nice family with kids. (I just love little people!) I never got to know my dad Lars (of Serengeti's Polar Express). He didn't live there with us. I also have two brothers and a sister.
We didn't live there very long. Soon one-by one, my sister and one of my brothers went away with people i didn't know. 
              That made me sad.          
         I sure did miss them.
Then one day, this man and woman came by and picked up both my older brother and me. The man scooped up my brother and the lady, she snatched me. Out the front door we all went. Everyone fallowed us except for my mom. Would you believe,
they put us in a cage together and loaded us into the back of a camper truck? I gotta tell ya, "I was scared!".  All of a sudden the truck made a rumble. Everyone started waiving at us and saying "good-bye!" The next thing we knew, the truck  started moving away from the house. Down the road we went . Leaving behind the place we called home. I never saw my mom and that nice family again. I missed them all. I guess you could say,we were off on our first big adventure.
                                        Abrand new life for my brother and me.
We rode in the back of that truck not knowing what was going on. Before long we stopped. The truck opened up. There they were again. Oh boy! Now there 's another new lady too. Strangers!  Who are these people?  We were so nervous don't you know? They opened the cage to get us out.  Boy, were they in for a nice big surprise!
One of us had a little boo-boo. Hey, i'm not saying who. It was a bit crowded in that cage for two don't you know. 
So, off we went for our very first bath. My mind was racing "Get me out of here!".
Once we got out of that tub, we got to check out the lady's nice big yard.
She had a little dog too. (I just love little dogs!) Her name was Coco.  And that new lady? Well, i didn't know it then. But, she turned out to be my new grandma. It wasn't long before we were back in that cage again. The new lady was standing there waiving and saying "good-bye".
                                    There we were. Back on the road again.
Our next stop, another new house. Out came this man with a big smile on his face. Who were these strangers all happy and smiling. Didn't they know, we just wanted to go home? All i was thinking was "I want my mom!"  Before i knew it, the lady had me in her arms again. My brother was in the cage alone.
Oh No! What are they doing? The truck made it's rumble, they're waiving and saying good-bye again. There goes my brother with that man. Will i ever see him again?  Now the lady and this new man open the door and take me into a new house. Guess what? It's my new home. I have a new mom and a new dad now. They started calling me Lefty. Why? Then i hear them say, " He's the best little left-over ever!"
Guess that means i was the last one picked for the team. (Was it because of my silly
pink blemish?) That's ok. I can tell these people are gonna love me very much. I'm pretty sure I can learn to love them too. So on that day, Feburary 28, 2004, i was officially adopted. I have a brand new family now.                      But my brother! 
                                               Where did my brother go?
