I see from my TimeHop that today is Ray’s Gotcha Day and truth be told, I knew it was around now but I’ve let the exact date escape my consciousness. You see, because I was there to witness his birth I would have always considered him “mine” in some way. Connected.
I don’t feel the need to celebrate the day he came to live in my house as much as I celebrate and cherish the day he came into my world and into my heart.
So while I might not be able to cradle him in exactly the same way, you can be sure that if we are in the house together, chances are we’re near each other.
I know that my life course has dramatically altered since my little piggy came into my life. There are things I do and think and want and feel just because of him so with that inspiration, after just one more sleep, I’ll be leaving my Gotcha boy in the very capable hands of his human sister while the hubby accompanies me on the fulfillment of a dream.
1. Oh em gee — what a cutie pie he was (and still is!!)
2. I CANNOT wait to hear about this exciting adventure!!
3. Happy Gotcha day, Ray! What a lucky boy you are to have found such an awesome family!
Argh! I just saw that offer and wanted to go! Have you ever been to the Greer Lodge? I;m interested to hear about it if you go, as well as surrounding dog friendly areas!
I can’t believe how small he was! I love it that’s he’s still a big lap dog…reminds me of my pups! They don’t know they don’t really fit:) Norman’s gotcha day is coming up too!
First, happy gotcha day buddy! And, second, I can’t wait to hear about your adventures!
Happy LOVE YOU SO MUCH EVERY DAY day, Ray! And also, I am pretending like your pants say ‘Tracey’ down the side and that I’m there cuddling with you!
