What a lucky day!

So I told everyone yesterday that you don't have to worry at ALL about today being unlucky, even if it IS Friday the 13th. See, Friday the 13ths are lucky in my family. Momma was BORN on a Friday the 13th. AND so was the doctor who delivered her. AND Grandpa asked Grandma out for their first date on Friday the 13th! How cool is that?

But this PAWTICULAR Friday the 13th is cooler than any other one before it. Wanna know why?


IT'S MY GOTCHA DAY!!!!

That's right, TODAY is my FIFTH adoptiversary!! I am such a lucky pup. You know, five years ago I didn't think I'd ever be here. See, about five and a half years ago, I looked like this...






I itch again just looking at that picture! I wasn't even a year old, and there I was -- living in a dirt backyard in a hot Texas summer, itchy with mange, sad and dreaming of a furever home. THEN Legacy Boxer Rescue saved me!!


I took months to heal up, and then I started looking... and looking... and looking! Was my furever family out there? Then came that magic day when I KNEW I'd found what I was looking for!


I was HOME!! Momma and I were JUST what each other was looking for. And as soon as we found each other, we never let go.






 So happy happy happy adoptiversary to me and my momma. I hope we have LOTS more years together, because I have a whole lot more kisses still to give.
