it's my Gotcha Day!!




i'm very proud to say that it was ten years ago today that i found my Mom and she found me. until then, life was hard. i was stayin' with a lady who had lotsa other poodins and she was helpin' all of us find our forever homes. so that day she put me and my sister and brother in her truck and we drove to a Pet Supply Plus place and got put in cages out front. there was lotsa traffic and noise and i was very, very scared. before i knew it, tho, a nice lady was scratchin' under my chin and talkin' to the other lady. i knew somethin' was up. all of a sudden, i was being lifted out of the cage and put in a scary lookin' suitcase thing - i found out later that is was a cat carrier. the new lady drove me somewhere and took me inside. she put me in a room by myself 'cause there was an awful cat who tried to kill me!!! (i found out later that it was poopy Casey). but the lady visited me all the time and brought me food and toys and even let me sleep with her at night. right on her head! i learned to love her so much, right away. and my Mom and i have been together ever since. thanks Mom! you coulda picked another poodin, but you didn't, you picked ME! that picture on the top is me when i was little with my nice sister, Kirby, who's at the Rainbow Bridge now. the one on the bottom is just little me!

Happy Gotcha Day, Edsel! I'm so glad your mom found you. And looking back at baby pictures, it's hard to believe we were ever the little, huh? You were one tiny cutie.

Happy belated Gotcha Day! I can't believe how little and tiny and squishy you were. I'm glad your mommy picked you.

Even tho they bug you sometimes, sisters can be cool. I'm an only kitty and it can get lonely....

Anyway, I hope you got lotsa toys, treats and snuggles today!
