Where first, Momma?
Well, Momma and I decided that on a Gotcha Day, it's especially impawtant to remember all the less-fortunate pups and kitties out there that haven't found their furever homes yet. So I dressed up in my Casey Claus outfit and made a special visit to our local shelter with a big basket of goodies!
LBR volunteers always bring thank-you baskets to shelter and vet workers this time of year to thank them for all their hard work helping LBR pups. So I helped Momma make her delivery. Obviously the staff was more thrilled to see me than the goodies!
And guess WHAT?! There was another extra special visitor there when we arrived! I jumped right up in his lap and gave him lots of kisses.
Boy! I don't know how my day could get much more special than that. But you know what? It DID! Momma took me to Petsmart to pick out a special treat. (I'll show you later.) I also helped her finish her Christmas shopping for Cinderella, the kitties, my cousin Bear, and my aunt Gracie. And you know who we saw there too??
Santa was just running all over the place! I didn't take long, since I knew he was super busy, but Momma loves to get her pictures. Santa even told Momma he's never seen a dog pose so easily. I figured he wasn't counting me crawling all in his lap at the shelter because he knew we were visiting instead of posing then. What a grreat guy!
You might think that was it, but NO. Momma had one more surprise for me.
Phew! After all of that, I was happy to get home and try out my new treat. When we were at Petsmart, I picked out a brand new bed for my room. Cinderella usually gets the nice new beds, 'cause she's old and stuff, but this one is MINE! It's soft and cozy and I loves it.
What a grrreat Gotcha Day. I bet in another five years, we'll have even MORE of a pawesome celebration. 10 years sounds pretty grreat, huh?
