It's My Gotcha Day!

This was little me on the day I gotted sprung from the shelter exactly 8 years ago. I was about 4 months old. As you can sees, I was not a happy puppy cause everything was skeery.

This is what the shelter writed about me in their magazine. (It didn't luke xactly like this, mom maded up the newspaper thingie - silly mom.)

So today we had my Gotcha Day celebrashuns:
