Has it really been a year? (v. pic heavy)

Post your pics and vids here.

It has. One year ago today, we took in a skinny, scared little girl, just as it was starting to sleet, because she had nowhere to go and, well, we couldn't just leave her out there. We took her to the vet to make sure she'd be ok to have near our dogs, and when we walked in, I told the receptionist that we were just giving her some shelter and trying to find her home or another good home for her. The receptionist said, "Yeah right. You just got a new dog." And she was right.

I'd wanted a pit bull for a long time, but I had no idea what I was in for. I had never owned one myself, and I can't imagine a better introduction.

Shortly after arriving (like within days), she had to become a diaper dog...
Image

She's a dirt devil...
Image

A lover...
Image

A snuggler...
Image
Image

An escape artist...
Image

She's fashionable...
Image

Enjoys working on her tan...
Image

She's regal...
Image

She hunts...
Image

And she fits nicely into tight spaces.
Image

She's changed my heart and I can only hope that this is just the beginning. :heartbeat:

Aha! I couldn't remember what to call it. "Gotcha Day." Thanks. Such a good phrase.

What... it doesn't feel like a year? That either means it's been a really rough year... or a very awesome year ;)

Happy Gotcha day, she's very lucky to have you :)

She certainly walked into the right place one year ago. Looks like she leads a charmed life.
