This Weekend We’re Celebrating- ME!

Sunday is my Gotcha Day, and I am so excited!!!!


It’s my special day!

Now some of you may be asking, “Rumpy, what’s a Gotcha Day?”

A Gotcha Day is like a birthday! See, I am a rescued dog, so I don’t know when my actual birthday is. But I do know the date that Jen and I found each other- October 20, 2006. That’s the day that Jen got me…. GOTCHA!

I’ve been with Jen for 7 years now, and a vet estimated I was around 9 months old when Jen and I found each other, so I’m not a young dog anymore. But I can still make heads turn with my good looks and charm!


Who could resist my charms?

DeDe is allowing me to post this Sunday, and she’ll post her beauty secrets on Saturday.

I’m so excited! I hope you’ll come help me celebrate my special day!!!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  6. What a wonderful concept “gotcha day” is. Think I will apply it to our 15 rescued cats. That’s a lot of celebrating:)

  42. Wonderful blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..

    Any suggestions? Many thanks!
