My Gotcha Day

Today is my Gotcha Day.   I have been with my family for 5 years!

Earlier this week, I got a package in the mail from Reilly and Denny and Jackson.
They sent me one of their very special handmade cards and some crunchie duckie feets!  
 Can you see me drooling all over the rug?  This is good stuff!  I sure hope our waterfowl don't get wind of this!
Thank you so very much, guys.  You are always so thoughtful and generous and such wonderful friends!

And guess what I had the night before my special day?
A frozen blueberry yogurt on a stick!

 This is cold on my toofies, mom!
 Hey, you stole a bite!  I don't need your help, ya know!
I sure wish you were here to share a yogurt with me, Maggie.  Pawties aren't the same without you. 
Maggie, I want you to know that if it wasn't for you and the love that mom and dad have for the Airedale breed because of you, I would have never come to live here.  I just wanted you to know that.  Thank you!   I miss you TONS! 

I love you, Maggie~
Your Mitch
