It's My Gotcha Day!

Three years ago today

Mom and Dad got up early on a very cold winter day 
and drove 300 miles to Oregon to pick up a little pug puppy

Here I am in my new home

Checking out my new big brother
I miss him

It was so very cold so I got a new coat to wear

I found lots of new toys to play with

and mom's soft robe to snuggle in for a nap

I got my very own little bed to sleep in

and a wonderful furever home!

Happy Gotcha Day to me!

We are the PugRanch Kids
