My name is Natasha Jeffries. I was born in Ontario, Canada. I was really cute as a puppy. According to my doctor, I am now about 12 years old (that’s almost 90 in dog years). This is me in front of my house, when I lived in Canada. Now I live in a much smaller house near the beach, in Massachusetts, USA.
For the first while after moving near the ocean, Mom was home all the time, so we used to go for long walks on the beach and I could chase the seagulls. Now Mom goes out with Dad early in the morning and a new friend comes and we go for long walks.
But I want to tell you about my latest adventure. I knew something was about to happen when dad drove up with this house on wheels. It had a bed, kitchen, bathroom and dining room, all in one room, but it also had seats behind a big window and a wheel that dad turned and I wasn’t supposed to snuffle his hands when he was turning the wheel. Mom and dad spent the whole day moving stuff into the house on wheels, including my old bed and all my food. They kept on refering to the house on wheel as 'Turtle', so I thought that was because it was its name, but now I know that it was because it was a house that moves all the time.

[Editor’s Note: Natasha died of cancer several years after her great adventure of 1999. Some of the pictures taken during Nat/s adventure were taken with a Poloroid camera and did not survive to be included in this recreation of Nat's web log when originally published in 2000.]]
