Tomorrow is my 2nd GOTCHA Day for mommy and I. It is the 2nd anniversary of the day we met, when we "got" each other. Yes- love at first sight. When she asked me to come live with her, I didn't have to think twice about it. My little heart was leaping for joy and doing flip-flops inside of me! We signed papers real fast and off we went.
I never will forget the day I arrived in my new home. We were greeted by 5 kitties (if you can count hissing and spitting as a greeting). In time though, they learned to love me. The night I came home it turned out that mommy had already had a "Deck the Halls" party planned, but she said it quickly became a "Welcome Home Puppydoodle" party! I met lots of friends and had a great time. I got to sleep in a real bed for the first time that night, snuggled up close with my very own mommy.
Two years have flown by. I have gone from tiny puppy to a fully certified service dog. I go to work with my mommy at the elementary school, where I am employed as an assistant substitute teacher. I am certified in mobility work, and also do guide work. Yes- it's hard to believe that all this has happened in just two short years. I can't wait to see what the years ahead will bring.
No matter what...I know that I am the happiest puppydoodle in the world right now and I would not trade my mommy and my kitties for anything in the world.
