Hi, friends! It’s time for another Memory Monday.


When I first moved into my home, I had a very tough time falling asleep and staying asleep. That happens after you’ve been living on the street.

Every night, I would get in bed and then lay down. Stand up. Do 87 million circles. Lay down. Stand up. REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT. I didn’t like sleeping. You could tell it scared me and I wouldn’t fall asleep until exhaustion left me no choice.

Often, I slept on the floor with my back up against the wall. Another sign that my time on the street effected my sleep.

I was also a thumb sucker/chewer. It was very soothing for me to put Mom or Dad’s thumb in my mouth and gnaw on it where I’m missing a molar. When I would do that, it would put me to sleep.

I dug into Mom’s video treasure chest and found this gem of me when I first moved in. I had VERY long hair! (There’s a surprise guest at the end of the video too 😀 )

I’m sure glad I found my Mom and Dad. It’s nice being able to sleep knowing I’m safe now.

I was a discarded, lost little stray without a house or a family...until my mom found me. Now, I am the happiest, most loved dog in the whole world!

    Hi Noodle Buddy. I know it’s very difficult to break those street survival skills. If anybody wakes me up, I still go straight into attack/defence mode. I guess it is going to take some time! Woof! Ray.

  7. Oh Noodle, you look like Goldilocks, “this spot is too hard, this spot is too soft, but this spot is just right.” So glad you found your mom and dad; they are taking such good care of you. ❤

  9. Noodle, honey, you have come a long way from that scared puppy. You are really cute with all the hair, but I could see you were itching. Your Mom is so smart to keep your hair cut short. Thank you for sharing this memory video with me, uh, I mean us. *wiggles* 3
