My Gotcha Day Came and Went

Ah. A nice blanket, a toe, and a toy.

Ah. A nice blanket, a toe, and a toy.

Last Friday, May 30, was my gotcha day. The day my beloved peeps rescued me from that horrible place. Where nobody loved me. Where I was ignored. Just because I was different.

Can you believe that some humans could ever ignore a puppy? Treated me like crap they did. Sorry, that was rude, but it’s true.

My gotcha day may have come and gone, but my peeps are around forever. I can count on that. Just like I counted on Them to come back and get me after They met me. And I slept like a baby. Just like in this baby picture eight years ago.

Thank you, peeps.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    Happy Belated Gotcha Day, Stu!! I love to nap on their pillows also. My peeps call it “princessing” after the Princess and the Pea but that can’t apply in your case. Maybe something to do with the sequel, “The Prince and the Pee”?

  22. Gotcha Days are the best days EVER. They remind us to appreciate all we have, and to work even harder to make sure all those pups in shelters get their very own Gotcha Days too!!

  23. Donna says:
