There's No Place Like Home

Ha roo, pups and cool cats! It's me - Zim! Guess what today is? My Zimaversary! My Gotcha Day! Adopt-a-Zim Day! My Homecoming!!! (My honorary birthday is in January; please don't get confused. We get two celebrations a year.)

For those of you who might not know my adoption story, you can go back and read the gist of it at this link.

Should I reflect back on it all?

I think it's best to focus on the positive, don't you?

Remember the kindnesses, try to forget the rest of it

What I celebrate today is finding the right home for me - one filled with love and understanding, with people who give me the exercise, training and care I need, a home where there are other pups to play with, learn from and hang out with.
