Rosie's Gotcha Day!



Hi everybuddy,

Welcome to my ALL DAY Gotcha party!

Mommy & Daddy got me 4 years ago today (Mom was mistaken earlier thinking it was 5 but I straightened her out). Wow 4 years ago I was small and scared in that shelter till Mom came along and said she wanted me. I was scared but excited, too, that I found my Forever Home!

This is the earliest pic my mom can find but it was taken about 6 months after she got me.


I was about a year old then. So that means I'm over 5 now. Middle aged! I don't mind much, though.

To celebrate my Gotcha Day, my brudders gave me some presents.

Teal'c gave me a painting of himself. I think I might use this for dart practice. Haha. Just kidding. It is nice.



Kaleb gave me this card and a milk ring (the ring from a milk jug) to play with.


Here I am playing with the milk ring - one of the bestest presents ever!

Instead of many pressies, we made a donation to the shelter that I was adopted from - the Mercer County Humane Society. I did get a nice floofy feather toy, though, and I will get Mommy to post a picture of it later (since she forgot this time).

Thanks for coming to my party...enjoy the feast!

Hi Rosie! Happy Gotcha Day! I hope you have an extra-special day filled with treats and toys and hugs and kisses. We love that you gave a donation to the shelter you were adopted from.

Rosie, can I give you a kiss for your Gotcha Day? Just on the cheek (kissing on the lips is yucky).

Hmmm ... Our word verification seems pretty insulting: I MENSO is Spanglish for "I'm stupid" ... Sigh.
