Adopt-a-Davy Day!

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave!  And do you know what day it is?!?  Oh... right.  You read the title, huh?  Well, it is!!!  It's my Adoption Day!

There's a big, long story behind it, of course.  You're welcome to read it at this link, if you'd like!  The shortest version is that 11 years ago today, I came home to my forever home!

I know you'd probably like to see puppy pictures, right?  Well, here's one Mom took of me the day before she actually brought me home:

Yodel 007e Dave

Wasn't I a cute little fella?  Oh, I was crunching a cookie there.  Mom liked this shot because it showed off my freckles.  She still thought I was a "foster" at that point and wanted to show off my special features.  Ha woo.

To help integrate me into the pack, we went on long, long walks that first day home - and many days after that.  Here is Mom with the whole Army of Four!

Army of 4 walk 6-ec
Left to right:  Stormy (looking regal), my mom (the taller of the redheads), me (looking at the camera!), Ammy (guarding our 6), and Zim (getting ready to snarf something!)

Anywoo, please give my adoption story a read, if you'd like, and CELEBRATE today!  I plan on lots of walks with Zim and Mom and Dad, snuggle time, squeaky toy time, and snacks!  Help us celebrate, OK?



  1. Dave! That was a really cool story. Momma remembers when you were an army of four. Seems like a long time ago. I bet you weren't really screaming all that time, I bet you were saying "Get Mom! Get Dad! Zim! Stormy! Ammy! Where are woo?"


  2. I am celebrating with this cooler weather and ask for some extra snacks as well!



  3. We're celebrating you today, DAVE! You're such a special guy that your Mom and Dad would have found you no matter where you were. We ran our zoomies around the yard and had Maui hopping up on Dad just for you. Mom said we could even have an extra treat later but no candles. Bryn and Dolly.

  4. that's an awesome story!! It's similar to Gracie's story--she was on death row too, til I saw her photo on Petfinder and knew she had to come live with us.
    We got a little sad news about Gracie yesterday, I will post it as soon as I can get the x-rays to post.
    Anyhoo...we hope you have a great adoption day and yes, we will do some celebrating for you.
    p.s. It takes a real manly dog to wear pick!!! :)

  5. Dave Dave Dave. I just read your story. And wow what a story. I will celebrate your day by going out in our mountains of snow and send you a long and loud WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! And I think you look great in pink. Nothing wrong with that.

  6. woo hoo! Happy Adopt-a-Davy Day, Dave! You have such a great adoption story :) Sounds like you have a pawsome celebration planned! We're happy to join in ...tho we think we'll let Wriggley take care of the walkies and squeaky toy bit...
