Happy 1 Year Gotcha Day, Petunia!

Recommended Posts

One year ago today Petunia came to visit us while her Foster Mom "went to a meeting" (yeah, right...)  She was here less than an hour when I told DW to "just write the check." 

This little old lady girl pulled both of us out of the funk of losing Rocket months earlier. We weren't ready for another dog.  Petunia thought otherwise. 

Happy one year Gotcha Day to our bossy, foot-stomping, whining, talking broodie.

Happy Gotcha Day to all of you! <3 


Kendra, missing Badger (Vf Get R Done: Quicksand Slip x Ll Tee el See), 5/7/04 - 2/20/14, who opened our hearts and our home to greyhounds,
    Kenzie (Slatex Kenzie: Randy Handy x Slatex Chrisy), 4/16/03 - 10/29/14, who really knew what a good dog she was,
    and Falcon (Atascocita Sabat: Dodgem by Design x Atascocita Barb), 9/13/10 - 1/31/20, who was grumpy and snarky but eventually a little bit cuddly, too.

It doesn't seem like a year (quiet tears here for Rocket).  Remind me again of her background?

We don't know a lot about her other than she came from one of the farms where the owners are either retiring or cutting back the number of hounds on the farm. She had 21 pups that got registered and we don't know how many others she may have had that weren't registered. We're pretty sure that she and Kate were on the same farm together even though they came in at different times. 

One of her pups, MW's T-Rex has been quite the racer for the last year or so.

And we still can't get her to wear a coat. You'd think we were trying to murder her.....:lol

For those who don't know - Petunia received one of Miss Irene's house coats as a welcome present from a wonderful person here on GT. We have never been able to get it on her without a fight and having her run far away from us.  She is just KNOT a fashionista. :rofl  We couldn't even get a picture of it on her for Irene's website. Kate now wears the coat when it gets chilly here. 

The same thing happened when we tried a Thunder Coat on her during a bad storm. She and Kate are both very Thunderphobic. Makes for an interesting time during long storms.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.
