Happy Gotcha Day!

Two years ago today I made a decision to adopt a little beastie who was named Laney by the rescue.  She was three months old and weighed all of 5 pounds!  She looked different from her siblings, as you can see by this picture which was on the Petfinder profile of her sister, Lucy (the little black pup). Along with her brother Lenny, they were listed as Poodle-Wire Haired Terrier Mix.  

I brought her home, named her Riley and life's been an adventure every since!  We went through housebreaking, puppy teeth and puppy shots and an Indiana road trip by the time she was 6 months old.  By the end of April she had made a two day ride in the car down to Florida and was boarded for the first time.  Since then, she's traveled a few more times to Indiana and Florida and has been to northern Georgia both summers, she's welcomed company and has learned to snuggle in bed with mama, and that when the Game of Thrones theme starts, she's in for snuggle time on the couch.  

Yesterday she got a Kong Wubba that she played with and today we walked over to Kriser's and got a selection of treats, including a treat bag they gave us when I mentioned it was her Gotcha Day.  

So Happy Gotcha Day, baby girl!  May the adventures continue!
