My 4th Gotcha Day

Hi everybody!  It's me, Mitch and today is my gotcha day!  I've been with my family for 4 years!

Mom and dad suggested a picnic dindin for my special day!

We picked up a HUGE sandwich at our favorite deli and headed to one of our favorite spots ever.  WENTWORTH'S!

Check out this roast beef sandwich. 
That's all for me, right?
Chips! 
Don't mind if I do!
And what do you think came next?

Of course~~~ ice cream!  We had our choice of cherry vanilla or butter crunch.    Mom and dad were both very generous. 

This has sure been a fun picnic!
Living with mom and dad and Maggie has been a dream come true for me. 

Thank you again and again and again for rescuing me from that dreaded pet store, dad!  
I sure do love my life!


Love ya lots,
Mitch

Hey there Mitch,

Happy Gotcha-Day to you!

Meaning - You have it good! :)

Keep those peeps happy - you've got a good thing going there!
