Happy 8th Gotcha Day to me! My Gotcha Day is actually September 11th, Emma’s birthday. I think it is nicer to honor Emma on her day, and I can honor myself a day or two later. Since I crashed Emma’s 7th birthday party and never left, the least I can do is let her celebrate her birthday on her own.
On Saturday, September 11th, we all remembered Emma and celebrated her birthday. Mom also took me to Gramma’s and they both spoiled me for the day. I got several fun walks and lots of special treats and extra attention from Gramma.
Back on September 11th, 2013, I came to see Mom with two of my sisters. I am from a litter of fourteen puppies, ten girls and four boys. Mom only wants girl dogs, so my breeder brought us three girls for Mom to meet and maybe adopt one of us.
I was actually pretty mellow. My sister, teal girl, was fairly aggressive and was insistent on being adopted by Mom. While I sat quietly in Mom’s lap, teal girl was up in her face, trampling me. My other sister didn’t seem to care if she was adopted or not. Both Katie and Emma were not real interested in any of us.
In the end, I won out and got to stay with my new Mom forever. I was so happy! It truly was my lucky day and being well mannered really made the difference. Once I was secure in my new home I let my wild side out and have never stopped! I can be quiet and well behaved or I can be a real crazy dog!
On my 8th Gotcha Day I’m still super happy that I was chosen over my sisters to live with my mom and two new sisters. The past eight years have been wonderful. I’m really a lucky girl to have so much love and so many opportunities. I do miss Katie. She really took me under her paws the almost two years I was lucky enough to spend with her. Katie was my special sister indeed. Now I have new sisters but most of all, I still have my mom who I love so much and she loves me too.
