Happy Gotcha Day Grete!

 
Happy Gotcha Day to me!!!!   I love the graphic that the Zoolatry girls made for me a long time ago...before Figaro joined our family.   I will imagine the hat on my head has his name on it.
 
I came to my family 5 years ago today. 
 
Some of you know the story...I was at Animal  Control...I was a stray...and that was not the first time I had been on my own.   I have a long and confusing story.
 
The most important part is that on May 21st 2008, mom was looking on Petfinder.com.  She saw my picture and my story and she told dad and they hopped in the car right away to come meet me.  Doggies at Animal Control are adopted out first come first served.
 
I was lucky mom was fast...they got there shortly after they opened for the day.   There I was in this concrete kennel.  It was horrible.
 
But I liked mom and dad from the start.  I knew I would love them.
 
So...below are photos of me on the day I came home.   My squeaky possum is my very first toy.





 
I'm a lucky girl.
 
Check out my interview at Savannah's Paw Tracks for more detail about my rescue and adjustment to life in my home.
