Gotcha Day (plus one)

Yesterday was the second anniversary of the day Kaci came home to stay. It’s really today because there’s still 90 minutes of October 13 left to go in this time zone..

Here are the pictures from the rescue web site that made us fall in love with her and go to California to bring her home. She had a very Scottie like look to her. When we got to see her in person, she had Westie fur which was OK since she replaced Kenzie the Westie.

Kacey 002 And here on her first anniversary gotcha day last year. Notice the feet of pumpkinhead featured in last post’s movie just to the left of the door.
Kacey 001Speaking of Gotcha Day +1, here’s moi the day after coming home in December 2002. The other dog is Mercedes from next door who is three days older than me. Unfortunately Mercedes moved away about five years ago. She was a terrible student, I couldn’t teach her anything, especially how to keep the ears upright.


That was a true hatchet job of a Scottie cut done by my rescue group.

  2. Happy Gotcha day Kaci! I totally understand the problem with the ears, since 5 years I try to keep my ears upright, but it doesn’t work… probably breeds with floppy ears aren’t as smart as terriers :o)

    • It’s hard to believe that she was on death row in a kill shelter. She was taken from a pen that had a lot of big dogs-nobody cared because she was a goner anyway. Look at the piece of ear missing from the top of the left ear.

  10. Kaci your eyes got a sparkle after you got your forever home. Foster Mom dolled you up for those photos to make sure people looked at you. But you didn’t need dolled up! Kyla well you have just been darn sweet your whole life.

  14. Happy Gotcha Day, Kaci! We noticed that Riley has the same texture to his fur. It’s not as soft as Seth and Braeden’s fur. Hmmm…wonder what that means?
