|Phod's petfinder picture|
One year ago today our lives changed when Zaphod came to live with us. It honestly feels like he has been with us forever. I am sad to be away on his Gotcha Day, but we did take some time to celebrate on the weekend with treats and I told him his adoption story, which is a tradition in our house. He isn't sure there were dragons in the original story . . . but because he was getting belly rubs he didn't argue too much!
Looking back, Phody has come a long way in the past year. He was far more fearful when we first got him. If we raised our voices (even just to "yell" down the stairs) he would shake and pee. He was very hesitant and scared. Clearly he had been mistreated. His gentle manner and loving nature have allowed him to overcome whatever horrors our once abandoned and severely underweight dog faced in the first year or so of his life. He ability to forgive, forget and embrace life every day is a great lesson for all of us. His ability to love unconditionally is a true blessing.
To our boy - Happy Gotcha Day! We couldn't be happier that we Got Ya!
Lady will talk about her trip later this week!
