Happy “Gotcha Day” Dakota!!

Oh my!!!!! With my being sick since last Thursday, I NEARLY FORGOT that today is Dakota’s NINTH GOTCHA DAY! I was sitting here doing work, I looked to my side and saw my boy who “guards” me while I work. Because I don’t have time to come up with something new, I went through some old posts and found this one that I have edited with some different photos, some of the text originally appeared in 2013.

HAPPY, HAPPY GOTCHA DAY DAKOTA!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!

TODAY IS DAKOTA’S 9TH GOTCHA DAY!!!

Dakota was the answer to my childhood dream

of having my own Sheltie

When I was 5, I met a Sheltie

that lived across the street who was named “Dandy”

that was it, I was hooked.

I used to only play with the kids that lived in that house

because of their Sheltie!!

At the time, I was obsessed with Lassie

and in my 5-year old mind

 the Sheltie that  I had fallen in love with,

was a mini “Lassie”

I later learned that Shelties

aren’t related to Collies at all

but are their own marvelous breed!

sensitive, silly, loving and crazy breeds
