Gotcha Day!


Dear world,
Yesterday was my official Gotcha Day. For those who have never been rescued, that is the day when I got my forever home. I bet you didn't know that my name used to be Goose! I lived with a family until bad stuff happened with them and after four years they dropped me off at Retrievers&Friends in Temecula, CA. I was soon adopted by another family. They changed my name to Bear ! Then after nine months bad things happened in that home and they didn't want me anymore. So I went back to the nice rescue place. I tried my best to keep my spirits up cause I knew in my heart that there was a family out there who would love me just as much as I loved them. And then on March 17, 2007, my Forever Mom & Dad arrived to take me home.
Love always and forever,
Bear

  3. Awww, Bear. Happy Gotcha Day! You are so lucky to be in your furever home. We know your life was not always the way it is now. So we guess it's not a bad tradeoff to dress up for Mom considering all the love you get from her and Dad. And we can't forget your wonderful brother Fuzz and sister Rosy. We are happy too in a selfish way. If you didn't get adopetd into the family you are in now, we would never have met you. So that makes all lucky.

  13. Happy Gotcha Day! I think your story is a great example of how the road might be a bumpy one, but the destination is worth the ride! Disclaimer: I am a bit oversleepy so my analogy might have come out as sheer nonsense.
