Hello, Everyone! My name is Otis. I am a perfectly smart and talented dog. Some people think I am a just sock-dog, but I am so much more.
In 2006, the year of my creation, I was adopted by the most wonderful family. I sat in a pile lof socks just waiting to be discovered.
I think someone saw some real potential in me. And then, wow, did I come to life. In my few short years I have had many adventures. I will be sharing some of those with you all soon.
Where do I begin? I think we should start just outside of Lucca, Italy, in the little town of Vorno.
Here stands the glorious Villa Boschiglia. Samuele, the cool Villa owner, is my special friend as he allowed me to stay at the Villa, even with the no dog rule.
But, again, I am not just a dog.
Sam is pictured here in front of his fireplace. My family and I had our first two week stay here in 2007. Believe me, we were all treated royally, especially me.
I had a glamorous bedroom that was color coded to me, I am sure.
Fresh flowers were brought in to my room and my bed made every day. We had a crazy chef named Bartek. He says he is a donkey, and I agree. But my whole family loved him.
His girlfriend, Maika, who helped at the Villa was much more normal. That is them with me. But he did feed us beautiful meals, and I got the head chair at the end of the table.
Here is a picture of the Villa, and that is me looking out my window. This is a picture I took of my family on the Villa steps! You can click on the icon to the left for a full description of the Villa.
In each blog I will try to tell you of a new day’s adventures and we had a lot.
