It's Finn!!

Hi everybody, my name is Finn Puxley and I am the newest member of the herd. Recently I saw the movie Toy Story 3 and I'm not too proud to admit it, the scenes of the day care really scared me. So I got myself on eBay and after a harrowing 7 days I was finally "won" - packed carefully in a box and mailed to Seattle. Ooh, Seattle, I thought, visions of raincoats and umbrellas and muddy boots floating through my head.

But when the box was unpacked, I realized that there must be some mistake. No kids in sight! Only three other sheep, and one of them had a horrible burn on his chin. Just when I thought that I must have ended up somewhere worse than a daycare, Erin came home from work and scolded the sheep for opening her mail and then explained that my journey wasn't over yet. She shoved me, DJ and Sheepy in a bag and we flew back to the Midwest as carry-on luggage. Then we drove in a car for a long time. I was beginning to get worried. This was more than I bargained for. When she finally took me out of the bag she told me to say goodbye to Sheepy and DJ then she stuck me in an even tinier and far less comfortable bag. Oh, what torture was waiting for me next?

It turned out, I was finally going to meet my new owner. Perhaps I was a bit hasty in choosing one because it turns out he is quite young:

Maybe too young:

But then I found out he is what they call a "fluff butt" and my faith has been restored. He's already taken me to meet Santa and promises that we will go other fun places very soon.

Hey Finn. Welcome to the blog! I know it was a really long trip, but I hope it was worth it. I know that you and your new owner will be best buds. And don't worry, Fluffy Butts group up and love their toys. I put you in good hands.

Awe, nice to meet you Finn! I can't talk too much right now because I'm in India, but I hope to have lots of good chats with you here! :)

All that snow in the Midwest must be a disappointment when you were dreaming of rain and mud. Hope you have lots of fun. Enjoy the holidays.

Again, welcome to the blog. It is official, you're on the sidebar. And it only took me 4 months to do it. :P Sorry readers, I've been AWOL.
