Gotcha Day.

Each year, in the first week of September I celebrate getting Gyp - it's a bigger day than her Birthday to me, mostly because she wasn't planned :) It's GOTCHA day!! Today we celebrate 4 years! It's true it's sappy, but honestly you have no idea how lucky I feel to have her.

This little dog has brought so much joy to my life and the things we have done together in those 4 years boggles my mind ... she has been to both the East and West coasts and played happily in both Oceans. She has sat on the front lawn on Parliament Hill, explored Halifax harbour, cruised the downtown of Qualicum Beach, hiked in the rocky mountains, ridden in a canoe, ridden on a Ferry, ridden on planes, been scared of every fishing rod she has ever seen, spooned under the covers with me, been petted and hugged by i'm sure hundreds of children, been on three National Agility podiums, slept soundly on a kitchen table when she thought nobody was looking, she's stolen pizza out of Pete's hand more than once, gotten away with more than any dog ever should .... the list goes on ....



This photo was talking the first week I had her, we were in Kimberley BC for an Agility Trial and she tagged along as my "Foster Dog". Notice the pretty collar I had custom made for her ...

"So, miss Sarah....
Do you think that you'd like to take Gyp for an hour, an afternoon, a day, or forever perhaps??"

Yeah, when you start buying nice collars for a foster it's a sign :)

Sweet, sweet story...love the term, "Gotcha Day"...may i borrow that to commemorate my fur-gal's day? (her's is mid-April).

Lucky Gyp, to have such a caring & devoted human!
