Posts Tagged ‘Happy Gotcha Day’

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. I’m a day late here but better late than never. What am I late for? My Gotcha Day!

Thinking back over the years I sure am lucky to have landed in this home.

Seven years ago I first set foot in my forever home. Millie & I were best friends right from the start and we still are.

I have lots of great memories from my first seven years here.

We may have slowed down a bit but we still enjoy playing and hanging out together. I can’t wait to see what the next seven years have in store for us.

We’re joining Comedy Plus for their Wordless Wednesday blog hop.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. Yesterday was a special day for both of us. Five years ago Millie first set foot in our home.

Foster Parents Michael & Darcy watch as Charlie has Millie sit for a treat.

I was kind of scared at first and when my foster pawrents left I cried myself to sleep. Funny thing is that when I woke up I didn’t cry anymore because I knew I was staying here forever.

Also five years ago Walter was born (okay we don’t really know when he was born but it is a close approximation). His life didn’t start out too well but a few months later he would be here in his forever home too.

This is one of the first pictures taken of me in my new home so it’s the closest thing to a puppy picture we have.

Yesterday we had a little celebration.

There were a couple of big bones and mom added some whipped cream down the middle.

I’m trying not to stare.
Maybe if I don’t look I won’t be tempted.

Eventually our mom let us have our treats. Here is a video of all the action.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

We both took our bones to the grass where it was easier to chew on them.

It takes a lot of concentration to break this huge bone.

It’s tough to get my mouth around this thing.

We both worked hard on those bones but our pawrents took them away after we had eaten about half of them. They said they were worried about what it might do to our tummies and they promised that we would get to finish them soon.

What a great way to celebrate 5 years in my forever home.
And a great way for me to celebrate 5 years of life.

Gotcha Day-banner

Hi everyone it’s Walter here. There is no mischief today. Instead I have something exciting to share with all of you. I can’t believe that it has been one year since I joined this family already! It sure has been an exciting year. Before I get started I have to tell you that another very important Blogville resident has his Gotcha Day today too. Please visit Frankie Furter to wish him a Happy 7th Gotcha Day. I’m honored to share this day with the former mayor of Blogville.

I don’t know where to start to recount my first year in this great home. Of course I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my rescue Big Dogs Big Hearts that came and got my brother and I from our awful first home. We were in pretty bad shape but with a quick bath we were on our way to our foster homes. I was lucky to have a wonderful foster home with Lindsay and Jon and my foster fur sibs Rocco the dog and Zoe the cat.

Millie & I love to hang out in the big bed and snuggle with mom and dad.

One of the best things about my first year has been having Millie by my side. She is a great big sister and has taught me so much. I don’t think I could have possibly found a better match as a play mate. During this past year I gained about 15 pounds (6.8 kg) which makes Millie and I exactly the same weight. She still can kick my butt every time we wrestle but I don’t care because it is all fun.

I’ve had so many firsts this year I couldn’t possibly recount every one of them. Of course you could always take a trip down memory lane by perusing our blog for the past year too. Millie and I love to participate in Blogville events and I would have to say my favorite was the Valentine’s day dance where I got to escort my beautiful date Tui.

I heard that Sarge is hosting another Date Day coming up on May 19th. I can’t think of a better Gotcha Day gift than having my sweet Tui agree to go on another date with me. So how about it Tui? Will you go out with me for Sarge’s Date Day? I have no idea where we will go or what we will do but I promise it will be fun.

To finish the Gotch Day post I just want to say thanks to everyone that visits us whether you leave a comment or not. We love all our Blogville friends and love being part of this wonderful community.

celebrate

Hi Everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here together to start our celebration! First up mom thinks you all should click on this video and let it play in the background to get you in the mood to party!

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Okay, now that you have the music going let’s start the festivities.

It’s hard for me and my pawrents to believe that one year ago today I came to live with them. The year has just flown by. Let’s take a quick walk down memory lane.

I had no idea that day, one year ago, when my foster pawrents brought me to mommy and daddy’s house that they were going to leave me there. I was a little upset at first when they left, but daddy played with me a little, I took a nap and when I woke up I knew I was home and didn’t worry about where Darcy and Michael went. I still love to see my foster pawrents and get pretty crazy when I visit with them. I will never forget what a great time I had at their home.

So much has happened over the past year. I made some new friends, met a fellow blogger and learned that grandpawrents give good scritches. One of my favorite things was learning about snow and how much fun it is to play in.

I love to dig in the snow!

Of course there was a bit of mischief along the way too. Do you remember what happened to the  “The Last of the Mohicans”

Of course my life changed a lot about half way through my first year here when Walter joined us. I knew from the minute I first met Walter that we would be the best of friends forever.

As all of our followers know we play hard and sleep hard. I would have to say that Walter is one of the best things that happened around here this past year. He really is a great brother and always so much fun to play with, wrestle with and chase. On that note I will turn the blog over to him because today Walter becomes a real big boy!

Woo Hoo! I can’t believe I’m a big boy now. I have to give a shout out to my brother Brodie (if that is still his name) and wish him a happy birthday too. We had a rough start until we were rescued by Big Dogs Big Hearts, but I’m glad I had him by my side through that ordeal. I sure do miss him and hope we can see each other sometime and I hope he is as happy as I am in my forever home.

puppy birthday cake 2Mom was baking all day yesterday and she said there would be a special cake for Millie and I to share (I don’t think it really looks like the one in the picture though). Grab a plate and enjoy some of our cake and make sure to grab a drink too. We have all kinds of soft drinks and some great New York State apple cider. Mom says we are still too young for any of the harder stuff, but I bet some of our furends might have a flask or two with them {{wink, wink}}.

I might have had a rough start in life, but since I came to my forever home life could not be better.

I love playing with water!

I learned how much fun playing in water could be although I still haven’t been swimming yet. I will put that on my list for this next year. Of course I have had a great time getting to know my sister and having the time of my life playing with her.

Sticking together

All in all I could not be a happier boy. Millie and I want to thank Big Dogs Big Hearts for not only bringing us to our pawrents, but for bringing us together too. We are lucky pups to have the pawrents we do (although some might say they are lucky to have us) and we also want to thank all our friends in Blogville for joining in our big Celebration Day! Let the party begin!
