My 2Nd Gotcha Day, By Jack

Recommended Posts

Guest Jacks_Human

Hi ebberybody.

Mai REAL gotcha day was yesterday but mai hoomans were sick an doing lots of 'paperwork' (which is anudder way to say not petting me!) an forgetted to post. So dis is mai story.

I wuz born in Ireland an trained to race an I wuz a good sprinter but den I got bought by sumwun who made me run mid-distance an I wasn't so good at dat. So I got 'retired' an sent to Scotland with a mean man who treated me bad. When he bringed me to the nice people at the greyhound rescue I was very skinny an didn't have much fur an I was scared of everything.

DEN...I saw a special hooman! I was so excited the rescue people said my Favourite Hooman could take me home rightawayquick. Even though the world was super scary I knowed my hooman would keep me safe. Slowly I learned that most hoomans are nice an dere is no reason to be scared.

Last year mai hooman saw I was not getting enough cuddles, so dey picked out a second hooman to come take care of me. She definitely taked good care of me, so she and my Favourite Hooman getted 'engaged' which means we all live together in a new home. An just to make sure I gets enough cuddles my hooman helped me become a Therapy Dog so I can make new friends with people in hospitals. I think this is a good life, even if sometimes my hoomans eat curry and don't share.

What a journey you have traveled, Jack, from a scared untrusting houndie to one who gets extra lovins being a Therapy Dog. Definitely, life is good. I'd guess that you get extra treats to make up for the curry :lol Congratulations and Happy Gotcha Day Jack :confetti

Happy gotcha day Jack!

 

Glad to hear you've increased the numbers of petter's in your life since being adopted. No curry, least they can't blame the smelly trumps on you Jack, do you get compensated with some rice or naan instead ?
