My Gotcha Day!

It was five years ago today that my people brought me home and adopted me.

They looked a little bit younger and skinnier back in 2004.
The new year is a time for reflection and planning. I'm lucky to have had many adventures and made so many friends over the last five years, especially since joining DWB!

My resolution for this year is: Keep more up-to-date blogging and reading my friends' blogs! I can't wait to tell you all about, and read about, all of the adventures that 2009 will bring.

Hi Lenny,

My Mom sent you an e-mail last ngiht but when she got up this morning it was still in our outbox unsent and it's still there. Sometimes my Doofuss Mommy messes things up.

Anyway...there 2 are dachshund rescue groups that are for sure close to you Nana but if you go into the internet & type Dachshund Rescue in New Engkand a lot will come up but the Mommy really wasn't sure where they are cause she hasn't been up your way much.

Here are the two.
Dachshund Recue of North America @ Contact person Kimberly Doherty (all of New England)
781 439-2154 MA
Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue @

Sorry it so long to reply but it was awful busy during the holiday.

Good luck..let us know how it goes.

Hay Pal,

We're so sorry we missed your gotcha day -- we know how important those gotcha days are to all of our kind -- and we are happy you landed in such a great family!!!

Guess what Mom got for Christmas? A beautiful book about Leonard Bernstein. This is his year --and I bet you're following all the good press and articles about him!!

So, Happy happy belated Gotcha Day!!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Jake of Florida said...

Yep, Lenny, my people brother and his marching band went to a bowl right in the area -- St. Petersburg. It was the MagicJack Bowl and USF played Memphis (and lost). Ironically, we were in Memphis at the time with Gussie, so we got to see a little of it on TV.

Thanks for asking!!!

Congratulations, Lenny, and happy Gotcha day! You look so cute with your peoples.

P.S. Your parents look really young and I bet they still do, especially compared with my humans, who are REALLY OLD, like they must be 300 years old or something.
