Happy 5th “Gotcha Day” Precious Dakota!


You came to us from up above,

a precious “Sheltie-boy” for us to love.

All licks and love and with a waggling tail,

with an abundance of energy

that wouldn’t  be curtailed.

You are the answer to our every dream,

a Sheltie of our own to love and preen.

You bark,

you prance,

you bark,

you dance,

we wouldn’t trade you for a zillion dollars!

NOT A CHANCE!!

Happy 5th “Gotcha Day” Precious Boy!

Love, “Mom and Dad”

  9. Me and Nellie have never heard of a “Gotcha Day”. Does it involve lots of tasty treats? What do you do on this day? Love Nellie and Jasper.

    • Hi Nellie and Jasper! I am sorry, I should have explained. A “Gotcha Day” is the day you first arrived to live with your family. It could happen through adoption, through pawchasing a dog or a cat from a responsible breeder or finding a pet or whatever! It’s the anniversary of the first day that you came to live with your family. It DOES involve tasty treats (but EVERY DAY does!) and even prezzies! You can do whatever you wish on that day but most of the day is devoted to your family just adoring you even more than they do EVERY DAY!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  10. Wonderful Sheltie mets wonderful family – sometimes the world is just perfect!!! It’s a very nice poem and I think you are priceless anyway… and we get the zillion better from the lottery :o))))) Enjoy your Gotcha Day!!!
