Tommy's Gotcha Day Thursday!


Tommy: On December 1st, 2007, #1 embarked on an amazing journey. She drove about an hour and a half away, with a friend, to pick up a little Tommy that would change her life forever! Poor #1 was so nervous that she did not even dare to hold me...


On the way home, I sat in the friend's lap, wondering what my future held:


When we got home, I was welcomed by this little rusty-coloured guy called Sen-Chan who extended the paw of friendship with no reservations:


And a couple of days later, I met Auntie Madrac (The OWCB Fernant) who would show me all the ropes:



 Sen-Chan and I immediately became the best of friends. He showed me how wonderful kitties are:


Here is one of the first pics of the three of us together:


Nine years have passed since then. I could not have been gotcha'd by a better family. Sweet Sen-Chan left us only a year later, and along the way we have also lost Yuu-Chan and Madrac. But I have my #1 who takes me on so many adventures with her, and I have my Tama, Sei, Beebs, Genji and my woofie pals Fernant and Damia. I also have my parents, Minnie and Joe, with whom I spent my last birthday, and my lovely sisters Sophie, Lydia, and Elsie, my niece Emily, and my aunt Cora, and Ms.A and Mr. R with whom all my woofie family lives. My life is full of love and sweetness.

I love this pic of me and #1, taken this past summer:


I love romping in my fields:


I love my life.

Happy gotcha day to the most beautiful, wonderful dog! Isn't it amazing the way fate sent you and your#1 to each other. Perfect together. And dear Sen-Chan sensed your goodness from the start. It always makes us happy to see the way your kitties love you. You are an extraordinary dog and we are so blessed to know you, if only via the 'net. All our love to you. Hugs and kisses too.
