Happy Six Year Gotcha Day my precious Hobo

Today is the six year anniversary of you coming to say with us. A little stray running around a busy street late at night trying to find food/shelter. Your hair was grown over your eyes...its a wonder you weren't killed on that road.

You had crystals, UTI, and worms. We looked for two weeks to find your "family" but no one ever came forward...lucky too, 'cause after only a day I knew I wanted to keep you LOL

It took us two months to get you healthy but only a moment to fall in love with you...you fit like a glove in our family and with Ginger and we have not regretted a day since

Here are some pics from the Wild Willies Gothcha Day Ice Cream tradition that we do on gotcha days and birthdays...

Thanks all...I always say that I never chose my dogs...they chose me!!!

I am lucky that Hobo and Ginger are in my life and very lucky that Pat takes such good care of them in my frequent absences, as I travel a LOT for work.
