What a Fabulous Day

Hi everyone! It's me, Mitch!
I have to tell you that I had one fabulous gotcha day! It started off with dad leaving for Maine very, very early and I was really bummed that I couldn't go too but things started to brighten up when mom told us that it was time for our morning walkie! yeaaaaaaaaa
After walkies, it got dull again - mom went grocery shopping but she was smiling away when she returned!
Look what she brought home for MY special day! You need to know that it is 9AM in the morning and Maggie and I are eating Pineapple Coconut ice cream out of mom's fancy goblets! whoooooohooooooooooo

Life is good!If we're dreaming, please don't let us wake up!After we finished our ice cream, mom handed me a bag!And inside the bag was this:
It's a piggy and he makes the neatest noise! I can't believe mom gave me a stuffie! She's usually taking them away from me and hiding them so I don't do any surgery on them!
I promise that I'll be as good as I can for as long as I can, mom! Is that fair enough?!
And now the moment you have all been waiting for!

We have always been so jealous of Bogie and the 4B's because they get a WHOLE hamburger all to themselves and we NEVER do! Well, guess what? Is this a pawty or is this a pawty?!
These are not your everyday hamburgers! Mom bought us bacon cheddar hamburgers!
The smell in the kitchen as mom was broiling them was killing us! She even toasted the buns and put a squirt of ketchup on each burger!

I ate my meat first and then the buns and Maggie started with the top bun, then the meat and worked her way down! I guess we have our own style!It's a good thing that mom took the pictures quickly because it sure didn't take us long to finish! Did we get every single crumb, Maggie!
This is one gotcha day that I will NEVER forget! Thank you, mom, for making it so very special for me and thank you all for your wonderful comments! We loved them all!

One more thing - we have to introduce you all to our new friends that have just started to blog! Lilly is a black Scottish Terrier and Piper and Carrleigh are Wheaten Scotties. When you get a chance, please go say hi to them!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Yer friend,



  1. Hi Maggie & Mitch
    What a great post today - we thought it must be someone's barkday!
    We can no longer get that particular ice cream in the UK and it was our mum's favouite!
    You are soooooo lucky - we have never had a burger either so we are jealous. And then a new stuffie - what is going on!
    Lucky lucky dogs. We will go and say hello to your new friends - we at first read Wheaten Scotties as Wheaten Scones but I think that is because you kept talking about nice things to eat!
    Have a great weekend.
    Martha & Bailey xx

  2. Wow, Mitchy! What more could you ask for? Ice cream, stuffie and whole hamburgers! I bet you wish everyday was gotcha day!

  17. The two of you are soooo lucky! Ice cream, a new toy, and bacon cheeseburger hamburgers all in one day!!! I've never had a whole hamburger to myself, unless it's a "baby" burger that my mom makes specifically for me. I think it's high time that I made the big leap to big boy burgers.

  18. Woah. Just....


    I've got to put on my business snood and have a chat with my humans about this new "burger" feast...

  19. YUMMMMY! Ice cream and cheeseburgers!?!? Even Mommy wants in on that feast. And a new stuffie! What a day! Now I'm off to visit your wee Scots doggie pals - we could have used them in Beagadoon!

    Your pal,

    lots of envious woofs - Clive

    I thought I would stop by to let you know that if you are lookin' fur love you should stop by my blog as my brother Scooby has started a new "business". Come by and check it out.
    Big licks to you

  60. Wow Mitch! I've got my first gotcha day coming up next month, in my experience of my new family I cannot imagine Pooky giving me as much hooman food as you had at your party. I may just book a flight and come visit you guys, you certainly know how to celebrate!
    Love (drooling) George

  61. OMD!!! Our girl almost never buys ice cream and guess what she bought today. That exact same ice cream. She ate some with fresh mangoes and it was delicious. We each got a little taste, until she read the ingredients and saw it had rum in it. No wonder it was so tasty!

    Now we just have to convince her to make burgers too!

    Happy Gotcha day!!

  62. Oh wow! I just discovered your blog and have been having fun reading through it, but I HAD to stop HERE and comment, because, seeing you guys eating that premier ice cream just stopped me dead in my tracks! Wow! You must live with great people!!!

    Long before I had a blog of my own, my Spokesperson wrote about my weakness for ice cream on her own blog at
    I had a really good thing going until my Spokesperson discovered I had been sneaking off to the local Dairy Queen every day!

  63. Happy Gotcha Day indeed! two really know how to pawty! Those hamburgers look deeelish! I'm telling Mom I want one tonight!!
