You're invited....

To help me celebrate my 7th Gotcha Day!!
November 13, 2012

Seven years ago my peeps rescued me from death row. I was about 4 months old and  in a shelter in Kansas. Nobody wanted me, my days were numbered.  My peeps had been looking for a German Shepherd but always seemed to be a day late in getting one.  My mom had almost given up and then for some unknown reason she decided to investigate what other types of dogs might be available.  That's when she found this picture of me and feel in love...
 As you can see I'm a girl who knew what she wanted....
I picked "Woolly Man" as my very first toy.

 Just like Goose, I love sticks!!

It is so good to be in a real home where somebody loves me.

So I want you to share my 7th Gotcha Day with me...

We've got lots of yummies

Beggin strips--the bacon kind :)
go ahead and grab a couple

dentastix and bubbles
there's lots more and we can play with the bubbles too.

Schatzie made sure there is kibble for everybody

Mom made brownies for you two legged peeps

 I don't normally get to sit at the table, so I was feeling 
a little uncomfortable in this shot. 

I insisted that all the yummies were taste tested.
(all except the brownies--I can't have chocolate)

 WOW.... looks at all these presents.....
 but these presents aren't for me. 
Mom says since I've been in the family for 7 years I can give away 7 Gotcha Day Party Favors!!
All you have to do is leave me a Gotcha Day message in the comment section of this post.
(So all you lurkers out there gotta leave a note to be eligible for the giveaway)
 We'll  throw your name in a hat and on friday and I will draw the 7 lucky winners.
I('ll announce the winners on saturday)

 The Party Favors include  1. The Alpha-Pet Book by Jack's Dad (I'm on the G page)  
2. a 2013 pocket calendar
 3. a gourmet shin bone
 4. a pair of snuggly socks, 
5. a book called "Sit"
 6. a cute cow stuffie 
 7. 4 fridge magnets mom made.
(sorry the dog dish is mine :)

thanks for joining me on my 7th Gotcha Day--hope you had  fun!!

Love, Gracie
