Hi everyone! It’s me Walter.
I can hardly believe that it is my third Gotcha Day today! I had a rough start in life with my brother but thanks to Big Dogs Big Hearts rescue and my foster pawrents Lindsay and Jon I was lucky to find a great forever home.

Pups like Millie & I, who were taken in by rescues, know how special our foster pawrents can be to us. Millie gets to see her foster pawrents when we go visit our rescue at their meet and greets but I hadn’t seen mine since the day I was adopted. Well a few months ago I finally got to see my foster mom Lindsay and boy was it a great reunion.
It all started because mom invited her Crochet and Knit group “Purl Jam” to our house for a holiday celebration just before Christmas. Foster mom Lindsay is a member of the group and mom sent her a special message hoping she could join us. Mom didn’t tell me she was coming so when I heard her voice outside when mom went to greet her I got very excited. We don’t have any photographic evidence of my greeting Lindsay but I just started jumping up and down (kind of like the dog in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZpOghdjZaA) and mom and dad worried that I wasn’t going to stop.
Eventually all the other ladies showed up and after having some snacks they went into the family room to work on their projects.
I was so happy to see Foster Mom Lindsay
Millie behaved herself and mostly laid in the middle of the floor but I just couldn’t get enough of Foster Mom Lindsay.
Kisses for Foster Mom Lindsay
In between giving Foster Mom Lindsay lots of attention I did take some time to hang out with the other guests.
Everyone working on their projects
But I couldn’t stay away for long.
You don’t mind if I sit here do you Foster Mom Lindsay?
Needless to say she didn’t get as much done on her project as some of the other ladies did. I think the look on her face says she doesn’t really mind at all.
Eventually I just couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer
As you can see I settled down next to Lindsay in her chair and took a little nap.
I love my family but us rescue dogs all know how special our foster pawrents are to us too. If it weren’t for them opening their homes, we might not be in our great forever homes. Thanks Foster Mom Lindsay and Foster Dad Jon for giving me a place to hang out and learn what a loving home could be like while I waited to find my forever home. You made my Gotcha Day possible.
Before I go I have to give a little shout out to another guy celebrating his Gotcha Day too. Happy Gotcha Day Frankie Furter! We sure are a couple of lucky guys.
