Hi Katie-girl, mama here. I wanted to tell you and your loyal subjects the story of your “Gotcha Day,” March 31, 2007, the day we met you and brought you home.
You don’t remember, but your mama and daddy were very sad when your sister Bonnie went to the rainbow bridge, and even though mama had been communicating with your first mom, we just weren’t quite ready for a new little girl when she had a litter of pups.
But later, when your first mom told us she had someone special that needed a home we were almost ready, so we said yes. We are so glad we did! You were a bundle of fluff, just 12 weeks old, but already very sure of what you wanted.
You were curious right from the start and explored your yard with your daddy and the house with your mama.
You found all your favorite places to sleep right away.
And figured out a crate wasn’t such a bad thing. Unless you had been bad to begin with, which sometimes you were.
But we couldn’t help but laugh and cuddle you even when you were being your stubborn self.
And you let us know right away that you were a princess and demanded pillows. All the pillows.
These nine years sure have gone by in a hurry sweetheart. I hope you’re happy you’re our little princess. We sure are happy to have you.
Though I suppose it’s you that really have us.
Happy Gotcha Day sweetie. Mama and daddy love you.
