Enough About Gimpy...

Let's talk about me!  After all today is my Gotcha Day Anniversary!

Yep!  Six years ago, Sam, Mom and my auntie drove all the way up to Youbou (might have taken an hour...)

Mom didn't tell Sam why they were going for the drive, just in case she didn't like any of the puppies, so when they got there Sam was pretty excited!  My dog mom and dog dad were there and I had two brothers and three sisters.  I can remember that all us young'uns were in a big box, I was the first one to see Sam and Mom and made sure that I was the first one that they saw too!

I think it's fair to say that I was the cutest one in the litter!

Don't tell Sam but I've always looked up to him...  He's taught me a bunch of good stuffs.

On our walks he's always in the lead and I always look to him on where we should go next.

Let me tell you, that one morning that Sam was in the hospital when mom and I had to go by for a walk by ourselves was kinda sad...  I didn't know what I should be sniffing or where I should leave the pee mails.

Both mom and I walked real slow that morning...

I really did miss my brother and when we when to pick him up and I found out we had to wait, I cried and cried... all the peoples there thought I was really cute but all I wanted was to see my Sam again!

But we are all together again today to celebrate my 6 year Gotcha Day Anniversary - mom bought us snausages!

Mom says that I should also mention that Sam is doing great!  He takes all his medicines like a big boy with no complaints.  Mom bought him booties today to protect the bandage from getting wet on our walks and he doesn't even complain about that!  Tomorrow we take off the bandage to see how it's healing.

Sam wants me to tell everybuddy thank you for all the well wishes!  His paw didn't hurt as much when he read them.


  1. HAPPY GOTCHA DAY PIPPEN! Obviously, you were the cutest puppy in your litter! LOVE you and Sam in frog pose - kinda looks like you're saying prayers :) Hope you're having a wonderful Gotcha Day and we're so glad Sam is back home to help you celebrate!

  9. Happy Gotcha day!!! You are still as cute now as you were when you were a puppy.

  10. Happy Gotcha Day Anniversary, Pippen! That was so sweet and thoughtful of your mom to give you snausages as a pressie.

    My dad used to have 2 beagles before he died. One of them was really ancient and one of them was really young. The really ancient one always insisted on being let outside first. She's passed on now and the young beagle doesn't like to go out anymore. So I totally get you're missing Sam on walks and stuff.

    Glad to hear Sam is doing well and hoping his cut heals up quickly.

  11. super mega happy gotcha day, pippen!!
    i'm glad you are havin' a grrreat day with your mama and sam!
