Jan 15,1985---a very important day for me! That is the day that my Dad walked into the Bucks County SPCA in Lahaska,PA and adopted me. Dad and I both find it hard to believe that 30 yrs have passed since that memorable day! Dad and I were together for 10 yrs until I crossed the Bridge in 1995. We shared many wonderful adventures together,hikes in the Pocono Mts,Dad`s first trips out West to Grand Canyon and California and our very first trip to Alaska. Dad and I got into backpacking together and shared our first overnite trips on the Appalachian Trail. My adoption was a wonderful thing and I will be celebrating it with a special party here across the Bridge with my angel siblings Butch and Smiley!

Thanks Dad,for the yummy cake (rosette) :) I remember well the day we met 28 years ago today. A few people were walking down the center isle between the 2 rows of cages at Bucks County SPCA. It was a cold January day,so all the dogs were inside. You walked past my cage and I briefly licked your finger as you stuck it thru my cage. I`m sorry to say that it was only a "lukewarm" lick as you continued on past me as so many others had done in the 2 months that I had been there. BUT THEN YOU CAME BACK! The kennel attendant opened my cage door and handed you the leash. I pulled you frantically down the corridor towards the door. PLEASE,LET`S GET OUT OF HERE! We went outside on the grass where we practiced some simple commands. Then after filling out the adoption papers,we were off in your car. I was thrilled to be going home with you! My first walk at Washington Crossing State Park that day is forever etched into my memory. It was the first of our many adventures together. We shared many day hikes in the Pocono mountains and I was with you on our first trips out West. When you first began overnite backpacking,I was thrilled to share the experiences with you. In 1994,we took our very first Alaska trip together. Thanks,Dad,for all the fun times. I know that there are more to come!

Yesterday,Jan 15,was the anniversary of my adoption. Dad adopted me from the BUCKS COUNTY SPCA on Jan 15 1985 and that was the beginning of a new life for me! In the 10 years that we were together,Dad and I travelled to many wonderful places. He would take me to the pocono mts once a week for day hikes and there were some nice lakes there that we would swim in on warm summer days. Later,when Dad began backpacking in the early 90`s,I was with him for his first overnite trips camping out in a tent. Overnite backpacking was a new adventure for both of us and we explored new areas of the Appalacian Trail together. We went to the Grand Canyon and California several times and I was along for Dad`s first trip to Alaska in 1994. We had a wonderful life together,but all good things must come to an end and I parted foom my Dad when I crossed the Rainbow Bridge in Oct 1995. Thanks for the wonderful times,Dad,one day we can do all these things and more when we are reunited!
