Nearly Wordless Wednesday – Pierson’s Gotcha Day Poem

Miscellaneous Dogs 014 (sm)

Pierson’s Gotcha Day is tomorrow, January 10th. His gotcha story is HERE. In celebration of this wonderful day, I am sharing some photos of my boy. Also, Pierson has written a poem:

It was a year ago today,
When I was living as a stray.

Now a whole year has gone by,
And I am one happy guy.

Mommy caught me just before the first winter snow,
But I didn’t know her and wasn’t sure if I wanted to go.

First there was a flea and tick bath, then the vet.
Then there was another person and a dog I had never met.

At first I was really nervous and scared,
But I soon realized these people really cared.

Everyone was so gentle and kind,
I knew they would never leave me behind.

It didn’t take long to build up the trust.
Life here is so happy and just.

I get lots of love and delicious food every day.
I’ve learned snow doesn’t mean cold, it means fun to play.

Instead of garbage and sticks to chew,
I have real dog toys and meaty bones too.

Mom likes to teach me tricks and I love to learn.
I have everything now and nothing to yearn.

This is my forever home, the best place to be.
So now I celebrate, Happy Gotcha Day to me!

      Thanks Rumpy! I never heard of Gotcha Day until I read about yours. What a better idea to celebrate the date of adoption rather than guess the birthday. 🙂
