Gotcha Day!

Well it has been a whole year since I came to live here. To celebrate I thought we'd flashback to that exciting day...*cue dream sequence music*

Mom and Dad travelled two hours to where me and a whole lot of puppies were waiting to go to new homes. Mom was overwhelmed by all the puppies and couldn't decide which of the little bundles to take home. She was crouched down patting the puppies when I thought it'd be fun to crawl under her. Mom picked me up because she was afraid she'd lose her balance and squash me. I told the other puppies that I had picked them as my new Mom and Dad.

We had only gotten about two houses away when I started howling and voicing my displeasure at being put in a carrier. I cried the whole two hours home. Eventually Mom came into the back seat and sat near me. You have to test them to make sure they are keen.
And the most exciting thing about the new place? Fluffies!
Though I am pretty sure this is the closest we have ever been to each other. They weren't very happy about me being there. They still aren't...
So tiny!

Fast forward a couple of weeks...My first bath here. The excitement and the zoomies afterwards wore me out.

So comfy

Happy Anniversary, Hamish :-) Give your mom a hug for me. (I realize dogs don't really hug and you'll probably just have to lick her face, but it would be really weird if I asked you to do that.)

Hey, Hamish!

I can't believe I am JUST NOW finding you, man. We have so many of the same buddies, I thought I'd come over to introduce myself.

First off, happy gotcha day, man. Your hoomans are stinkin' lucky you chose them. My girl and I enjoyed your little dream sequence retrospective.

By the way, I'm Stanley, a rescued Airedale who is also a bit of a goober. Come by to see me and meet my sissy, Stella (she's a rescued Lakeland Terrier).

Hope you stop by, and in the meantime, enjoy your howlidays!

Your goober bud,
