Gotcha Day tomorrow!

I'm very excited that tomorrow is my official Gotcha Day, and I have been with my new family for a whole year! It really has flown by.

This past year I graduated from 3 levels of Petsmart training, and Mom is very proud.

Me and my kitty brother Frosty are getting along fine, and he even sometimes tries to get me to chase him. And of course I wouldn't want to disappoint him;) He'll stand in the hallway and call for me, and I go running after him. He even sits on the edge of the couch so that he can see me to keep me company whileI'm in my crate when Mom and Dad are at work. When Dad takes me out for my walks, he cries! Can you believe that? Who would have thought!

I have found that I totally love toys and chewing on bones. I can chew and chew and chew. I love my stuffy toys because I love to suck on them:) Mom looked it up online, and found that it could mean that I was weaned from my mom and taken from my littermates too early. But I'm ok, as long as I have a few freshly laundered "friends" to keep me company I'm good to go. If not, I'll be happy to ball up and suck on whatever towel or blanket they have laying nearby --hee-hee!

I've learned that I really love to steal things so that Mom and Dad come chase me. Socks, underwear, shorts, shirts, shoes, scrunchies, you name it. It's a great game! And I am very fast. Just ask Dad!

I did have a not so great experience Tuesday night when Dad was walking me. We came across a neighbor that was walking 2 dogs. We were all barking at each other, and one of the dogs slipped his collar and ended up biting me before Dad could get me out of the way. I went to the vet yesterday and got 2 staples for a puncture would in my chest. Yuck! The worst part was the trimmer to shave my fur. Hated that! I do not like noises like that! Took 3 people to wrangle me. But all is good. Got lots of treats and just have to get the staples out in 10 days.

I'm just happy that I finally have my very own furever family, and that they will be here for me no matter what. This is the first of many Gotcha Days to come!

Sherman, I'm so sorry that you got bit by a doggie...especially so close to your Gotcha Day! Wrong, wrong, wrong. But here's a little tip for you, milk this situation for all it's worth. Steal all the socks, underwear & shoes you want & then show Mom & Dad the staples. Instant forgiveness! This is just between you & me, so mum's the word, OK? ;-)

I'm sending some super duper Bionic Muffin Healing hugs your way & I hope you get lots of great Gotcha Day treats!

Time does fly when you are so loved. I am glad you and Frostie sorted it all out.

You arent stealing... you are keeping things "safe" !!!

I am sorry about the dog biting you... some days.. just not good. Glad you are ok and will heal.

Thanks Flicka and Muffin! Mom is very happy because she said my staples look really good. No redness or puffiness. But of course, I'll still steal the sympathy!! Started out today laying on the bed with Mom, so it's looking to be a good day! I'm sure if I look really cute, I'll get lot of Gotcha Day treats tonight:) Mom said we're going to go to the dog bakery this weekend--yay!! Having a family is great!
