Gotcha Forever

Guess what?
Its my Gotcha Day.
After living with my family for all my 5 years
I suddenly had to leave.
I'll never really understand why.

The French Bulldog Rescue Network scooped me up and put me in a foster home.
This lady (mother) drove hours and hours to get me.
When she turned the corner to the foster's house, she noticed the street sign.
"Benson"
was this meant to be or what!
She got tears, since Benson "Benny" went to heaven cause of cancer.
Mother took me to the store and said pick out whatever you want.
Then we arrived at this house with a monster.
Her name is Lily.
We did a "slow intro" policy.
We walked and walked.
Monster sneaked around and stalked me.
She yelled that I was touching her stuff.
I was so scared.
I wondered why I was here.
Since that day
every day has been a good day.
Mom always kisses my face and reminds me that I am home.
Forever and ever and ever.
Life is good
Me and sissy even love each other now
Edward (& Lily)

  32. Dear Edward,

    Happy Gotcha Day! I don't remember much before I came to our family, because I was very young, but Ojo remembers... She had a different family once too, and then she didn't have them anymore. And it was scary and sad and lonely for a long time. But now she has us, forever.

    And now you have Lily and your family forever too! Aren't they the greatest?

    Happy Gotcha Day!!!
