today marks ten years with my wonderful family.  it was rainy, dark and stormy that evening in 2000, when my charon came down that road by the lake and found me trying to fight my way out of the muddy ditch.  i was but a wee little girl then, but what an adventure it’s been.  good fortune for me and for our entire family.  here’s to many many more fortunate times!!!!  lets celebrate!

    For my Tennessee gal pal, I’d start the pawrty with a little BBQ pulled pork with some fried okra and yellow squash on the side and then end it all with some homemade ice cream!



  5. comet, my folks are vegetarians, so no piggies served at this house… i think i’ll start with the ice cream and work my way back!!! gayle

  6. Hey Gayle my Mom’s a veg but my Dad’s a carnivore like me. I get snacks that are somewhere in the middle, like BBQ tofu with ribs on the side!

    Hoppy Adoptaversary! What a rags to riches story you have. Thank dog there are beautiful people like your folks in this world who know a good thing when they see it.

  7. Hi Gayle – that’s so pawesome – 10 years!! I can only imagine how adorable and sweet you were back then too. If I found a little puppy like you climbing out of a ditch, I would scoop you up in a heartbeat too. Your family is so lucky they found you and you’re so lucky you found such a great family. Such a wonderful and special story. Here’s definitely to many, many more fortunate times!

  9. Way to go Gayle. How could your pawrents not instantly fall in love with you when they saw you struggling out of that ditch? I just know you will be making your family happy for many, many years to come.
