Gotcha Day

Yesterday was my first gotcha day, meaning it was exactly a year since Muzzle and Dad brought me home :)

Muzzle organised a special walk for me today, with some of her friends and their dogs. There were 12 dogs altogether, including 11 Labs! It got a bit eventful when one of the dogs got stuck in the river and his mum had to go in and rescue him, but thank goodness they were both ok!

Apart from that scary bit, we had a good walk, though the weather started out really nice and sunny and on the way back changed to heavy rain, followed by hail and then snow! It got sunny again just as we got back to the cars and then started raining lots by the time we got home!

I'm really tired from that so I will post some photos in the next few days. I thought I would share this one from yesterday though, of me cooling off in a puddle.

Happy Gotcha Day, Minnie-Moo. I can tell by all the happy and active pictures, that Dad and Muzzle lucked out just as much as you did. Perfect match-up, don't you think? By the way, I love that picture of you in the pond. You really are a beauty! Have to add that your weather sounds just like ours here in Vancouver. Today, there was beautiful sun, followed by clouds, cold (around zero Celsius, so not really that bad, but I needed mitts), rain, snow, and at the end of the day, another blaze of sun to wrap things up. P.S. I'm really glad the dog stuck in the river and his mum were okay!
