Simpatico: Happy First Gotcha Day, Newby!!!!


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Happy First Gotcha Day, Newby!!!!

Can you believe this little sweetie has been with us a whole year? It just seems like yesterday we were going to the vet to be interviewed! We were so nervous! We saw that sweet face and knew that he just needed some love and patience. And we were overjoyed when the vet picked us to be his new family out of all the other people who wanted him.

He has learned a lot this year... and, if we are honest, he has taught us a lot, too.  Here are a few highlights from Newby's first year!

He has learned how to chew a bone.
He got a girlfriend.
He found out how great warm towels can be.
He went on several trips to Lowes, Sonic, Home Depot, PetSmart, etc.
He got a full name!
He learned how to distract momma and steal people food.
He became brave and went out on the porch all by himself.
He goes off leash a little bit now and then.
He has learned how to assert himself during bone chewing time.
Actually he has learned how to assert himself at any time!
He has partied like a rock star (or a really great British Spy).
He found his artistic side.

In other words, he has had a fantastic year... and we are blessed to have him be our little guy!

Thank you for being the best blogville family ever... You make all of us, including Newby, very happy!
