Happy Gotcha Day

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:03 am by Karma

Per usual, I’m a couple days late.  But on 3/19/2013, 3 years ago, I went and picked up Miss Adelaide, then named Murphy, and brought her home.  And life has been a joy since.  With a few escapes and a few other notable moments.  She has turned into a very sweet girl.  She hangs out with her other canine sisters (Aissa and Maggie May) and her feline siblings.  She digs like crazy even with just one front leg and takes full advantage of only one shoulder.

I love you Miss Adelaide (aka Addy)


Karma, Adelaide and the pack, and always with our angel Brendol

    Happy Gotcha Day Ms Addy. I am glad you are around to help keep your momma on her toes. I don’t know what she would have done without you when your big Sister Brendol crossed the Bridge. You help her heart even though she grieved. You bring lots of joy to her and the rest of your pack.
    I love hearing about your escapades. 🙂

    HAPPY GOTCHA’ DAY BEAUTIFUL ADELAIDE! And boy oh boy, as Michelle said, you’ve been keeping your Momma on her toes, and Aissa on her toes that’s for sure! And now Miss Maggie May is keeping all.of you on your toes! 🙂 And Brendol is at the Bridge popping bubbles laughing her butt off at her earthly pack!

    Addy, you are probably one of the prettiest gals on the planet! ‘Bet you have a gazillion doggy boyfriends! Well, maybe not quite that many since your girlie parts have been snipped.:-)

    Your “Howlin’ Escaping Cousin” Frankie’s one year gotcha’ day was this past January. I’m a bit late on that celebration too!

    Addy, you’ve not inly brought joy to yiur Mom, but you’ve brought us a lot of joy too..lots and lots of it! Nobody can get as much fun playing on a sofa like you can!

    Soooo glad you picked Karma as your Mom. You’re being loved by one of the best!!

    Lots and lots of love to all….lots of it…boatloads full!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

      I’m glad you caught our post Sally. Earlier today I had thought she had gotten out of the yard because I was sure I saw a tail scampering off out back. I grabbed two chairs to scale over the fence and hauled my butt over it in my pink housecoat to be met by a 4 year old in his jammies on the other side. He hadn’t seen her. As I was getting ready to start wandering the area and called out her name, I hear a jingle behind me. In my yard! There she is looking at me like why are you are there mom? Lol. So even when she’s being good, it’s not dull. Hope you are doing good. And hope no more scares in your pack.

    Oh Karma!!! What I wouldn’t have given to have a video of you trying to scale over the fe ce! OMD!! LMAO!! 🙂

    And I’m sure Addy’s thought bubble was exactly that! “What the heck are you doing mo ? Why are you standing on chairs,…in yiur housecoat…sta ding in chairs…scaring a little boy in his jammies?” I’m sure that little boy will be seeing a shrink pretty soon!

    Too funny 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
