Happy GotchaBirthday to me!!! Oh yeah and Ginger too! But the reality is that Ginger arrived in 2007 "around" the end of September/beginning of October.
Me, I arrived in the yard in 2008 at the end of September, but I officially knocked on the door and let myself in on October 1st.
Grete woofie was out of the house for 1 night for her first elbow surgery and when mom and dad were eating dinner they heard a knock on the front door screen. They opened the door and there I was. They opened the screen and I walked right in. I haven't left since!
