Rocket

My new puppy finally has a name! After a couple of (good-natured) arguments with the human and going through what seemed like a hundred different choices, we finally decided on Rocket. I still like Arrow for a name, but the Human says maybe we can get another puppy and use that name later down the line.

Rocket seems to suit him. He's really energetic, and likes to run around the apartment. There's a park right across the street, and we've spent a lot of time there while the Human is at work.

All right, I'm off to bed!

A Big Surprise!

I’m so excited today! My human came home from work yesterday and brought a surprise for me, a new dog!

I’ve been so depressed ever since we moved here, because I had to leave my dog behind. The human said we couldn’t bring him with us because he was too old and too used to the country; he’d be miserable in the city, so he stayed with her parents. They love him and take great care of him, but I still miss him a lot.

But now I have a new dog to get to know and love! We haven’t decided what to name the little guy yet. The human rescued him from the shelter, and they called him Barksee on all the paperwork, but I don’t like that for him at all. He doesn’t come to it, either, so we don’t feel too bad about changing it.
I kind of like Arrow for him but the human says I should think it over for a day or two.
What do you think we should name him? I’m open to suggestions!

Having a dog in an apartment is a lot different that having one at home. I have to walk him a lot now, we don’t have a yard to let him run around in. I had to promise the human that I’d be responsible and look after him.
It’s a lot of work, but I’m sure I can do it!

A new Introduction

All right, let’s get one thing settled first off:

My name is Edie, and I am a doll.

Yup, you read that right. I said doll. I’ve got tough vinyl limbs, a canvas-y body, and I’m filled with fluffy stuffing. I’m not alone in my doll-ness, either. There are about 20 of us here, but I’m the only one in the house lucky enough to have my own bedroom and my own computer time.

Don’t let the doll thing fool you though. I act like a normal kid most of the time. Sure, I take the occasional hit off my doll-sized bottle of Jack Daniels (medicinal purposes only, I swear!), but I also have to go to school and keep my room clean.

Here’s a picture of me in my new room:

I used to have a desk and a chair, too, but I recently moved to this new apartment with my human. I got to bring my bed, clothes, my American Girl doll collection and all my books, but the rest of my toys and furniture are still packed away. I'm using that big box as a temporary nightstand/bench for now.
I really want to put up some posters, and maybe find a way to display my squished pennies (I mostly pick them up at tourist attractions) but I haven’t had a chance to get any yet. My bed only just arrived out of storage, and I’m still getting settled!

The other dolls in the house are really jealous of me and my bedroom, even though it’s our human who did it, not me. They don’t like to talk to me much, so my only friend in the house besides the human is a stuffed bunny named Stanley.

Here's a pic I took of him yesterday:


He’s a boy bunny, but he likes to dress up a lot. He wears boy clothes, too, but his favorite outfit is a ballerina dress, and he says he wants to be a dancer when he grows up.

Stanley really drives me nuts. He doesn’t really have a bedroom of his own, since he hangs out on the human’s bed a lot, but when she’s at work and I’m at school, he likes to hang out in MY room. He’s always taking naps in my bed and uses my computer to play BunnyVille on his Rabbitbook page.



Still, I guess I shouldn’t be so grumpy about him… He is kind of my only friend here.

I’m hoping to meet some new kids at school, but it let out for the summer yesterday. The human said it wasn’t worth it for me to go for just a few weeks, so I have to wait until the fall to go. I’m really nervous about it, I’ve only ever been homeschooled.


Me and Stanley:


Small Update

Just a quick update from Syd, Edie's human.

I decided I really don't like writing for Edie as if she was a real, human kid, so I'm changing things up.
And I apologize for not updating often. I have lots of ideas for her, but not much time and no internet at the apartment still, so getting her posts up takes some doing. :(

Hopefully, it'll get easier.
