Toby’s Gotcha Day

Happy Gotcha Day, Toby!

Toby: Gotcha Day? Geordie" Yes, the day you were adopted. Toby: I'm adopted? But I always thought i looked like Mom!

Poor Toby got cheated in the special day department.  His birthday falls near Christmas, and his Gotcha Day is on Valentine’s Day.   He ends up sharing his celebrations with other events instead of having a time all to himself.

  Sympathy gifts might help me feel better.  I like tennis balls, stuffies and treats. (I wouldn’t say no to a pot roast, either.)

This is a picture of Toby arriving home for the first time.  You can see in Geordie’s body language, he is saying, “Please, Grandma, get me out of this!”

Seriously.  What is that thing?  A hamster?!?

Can you find the teeny tiny puppy hidden in this picture?

  1. Happy Gotcha’ Day, Toby! I’m so so SO glad you and your Mom found each other AND adopted each other! 🙂 ❤ You were THE bestest valentine, ever! ❤
    Coop said if you get a pot roast can he come and share? And he said if he gets one you can come and share with him! 😉

    Since you love dogs, I wanted to let you know that I’m offering a FREE electronic short story titled, ‘Puppy Love’ via Amazon right now.

    This is the synopsis:

    Like her name, Candy is a sweet six-year-old dog who never imagined life without her beloved human. When she finds herself up for adoption, she learns about the dark past plaguing the dog in the neighbouring kennel; hardships she hadn’t contemplated.
    In this heartwarming short story, a dog’s point of view uniquely illuminates the human experience of overcoming hardship and heartache, establishing friendship, and the virtue of loyalty.

    Have a good day!

    All the best,
