Gotcha Day!

You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give. ~Kahlil Gibran, Lebanese-American writer, poet, and visual artist

  1. OMG Debbie, I cannot believe it’s been a year already since Monkey came into your life.

    Happy Gotcha Day to Monkey and you! That photo is adorable!!!!

    Love the quote you shared too.

    Happy Sunday, dear friend! X

    • Ron, this is the look he gives me when I’m working at my computer and he’s “resting” on the sofa. You can almost hear him asking, “Aren’t you finished YET??!”

      Sometimes I feel the year has flown by; other times, I feel it’s dragged. One thing’s for sure: neither of us has had much chance for boredom! xx

    • “Made it through,” indeed. Sometimes, it’s been an uphill climb, Linda. And I wish I had a nickel for every time I threatened to haul him back to the breeder, possibly for some remedial training, ha!

  2. You know Deb, I’m not an animal person, but my daughter just had to put down her dog last week. She was sick. It was soooo sad. Our whole family was upset, even me. I know how much she loved him. I had no dogs when my kids were growing up. I was shocked that through my fear of dogs that she got not only one but 2. Now I know how you felt. I’m so glad you have a new furry friend now. I hope this year has been special and that you have enjoyed being a dog owner again. I hope you have great memories with your new pet.

    • Tanya, I’m so sorry for your daughter’s grief. We surely do get attached to these “fur-kids,” and I know her heart will ache for a long time. I’m still missing Dallas, and it’s been two years! Time has a way of healing the pain, so perhaps she can cling to that. Thanks for your kind wishes regarding Monkey. He’s a little hooligan most of the time, but I can’t help loving him!
