6 years ago today, on Oct. 30, 2004, Earl and I adopted Miss Dottie, she's been such a wonderful part to our life. Some times we can't even remember life before Miss Dottie.

Here she is at 6 months old just before I seen her, she had just been taken in by Jennifer, and her first foster person abused her, kept her in a crate for 23 hrs a day. Dottie was extremely blessed that Jennifer took her, the other person wanted the rescue to put her to sleep. Thanks god every day for Jennifer.

Dottie at 6 months old before she came home with us, these two pictures when ever I see them still make me cry. I can't believe how heartless some people are!

She's grown into such a sweet and loving dog. I'm glad we were blessed with her picking us!

Happy 6th Gotcha Day Miss Dottie

And that also a year later on Oct. 30, 2005, 5 years ago today we brought Percy home.

We also got him from the same rescue and the same foster person Jennifer, his 2 brothers and him were abandoned at Petsmart Bandfield hospital when they were 2 wks old. Jennifer had them from 2 wks until they were 6 months old. I called her up and told her that i'd like to get a kitty to be a playmate to Miss Dottie, and she said she had just the kitten for me, and boy was she right, I think I have the best kitten in Percy.

Percy at 2wks old. Isn't he a cutie :)

Percy at 24 wks old...

Here's Percy at 6 months old the day we brought him home :)

So we have 2 very wonderful pet's who we love. And we feel blessed they are in our lives.

Happy Gotcha Day to two very lucky animals! I think my fave picture of Miss Dottie will be that one of Earl carrying her. :)

It is amazing what a little love does for the abused and unloved animals. Such a difference from the first pic to the last. She (and Percy) are beautiful, happy little guys now. Congrats to all of you!

It's funny how they consume your life. In just six years you can't image life without her, imagine how we feel after having Trouble around for 12 years.
