Happy New Year and Happy GotchaBirthday Cecilia!


Hi there!  I'm so happy you are here today to help me celebrate!  On January 1, 2008 I first set paw into my forever home.   I had been hanging out in the garden and was brave enough to come on the deck, but it took me a few days to get my courage up to come inside.
 
Where it was warm.  There was food.  
 
I was sick and I needed medicine.  I had an upper respiratory infection.  I was a mess.  But I was cute.
 
Some of you already know my story.  I was supposed to get all better and then get "fostered" until a permanent home was found.  Mom even found a nice person at work that was interested in adopting me.  But...fate stepped in.  I developed asthma and mom didn't want to place me until I was healthy.
 
You know how it goes.  It took sufficient amount of time for my recovery...timed perfectly with how long it takes for attachments and bonds and love to grow.
 
 
And here I still am.   Since the weather warmed up I've been celebrating with some nice rolls in the dirt.  I love it!
