Sammy's Adoption Day

Hello, All!

Today is the third anniversary of my adoption day. It was a long, long road to get to my mom. I belonged to someone who got rid of me. I was with Dachshund Rescue of Houston. I was adopted and returned to DRoH. I was adopted again and returned to DRoH again. I was adopted by Mom. I was very nervous at the beginning. I still get nervous when I get into the car. I'm afraid Mom will return me and I love it here with her and Roxie and Andy. I love it when Jake and Maggie come over to visit and play. I love to go visit Grandpa and Grandma. I get very sad and worried when I think about it. Mom keeps telling me I don't have anything to worry about. She is keeping me forever because she loves me so much. I thought the other people loved me too but I was wrong.

I don't know what kind of presents I might get. Mom likes to give me extra cottage cheese because I enjoy it so much. I really don't need anything as long as I have my mom and Roxie and Andy and Jake and Maggie and Grandpa and Grandma and my aunts and uncles and food.

I also have lots of DWB friends. My life is better than I ever thought it could be. I am the luckiest dog it the whole world!!

(I reset the date so everyone who is already in July 3, can come by and leave comments.)

Happy Adoption Day Sammy!!

You are so totally in your furever home that you will NEVER EVER have anything to worry about. Your Mommy loves your very very very very much so you're gonna be staying with her furever. So don't worry and enjoy your adoption day!!

Actually it's kinda weird but me and sister Lucy came to momma in the same way - people bought us from pet stores and then figured out that we are more work to take care of than what they thought! So momma and dad are the second peoples we each had, both of our first peoples only had us for a couple weeks though. My biggest sister Chloe came from jail (her 2 year anniversary is mid-July) and actually dad found her there and brought her home after they took her baby-maker. Mom says baby makers are bad because there are more puppers like us who need good mommies and daddies! Lucy just had her surgery a month ago and mom said I need a snip soon whatever that means.
We are very glad that we met you guys and I love it when mom reads your bloggie to me ;)

Happy adoption day Sammy! Maybe your mom can put that extra cottage cheese as frosting on a piece of doggie cake for you!

Love ya lots,

Happy Adoption Day!!!!!

We know it's hard to trust again but sometimes ya just gotta figure things happen for a reason. Otherwise maybe you and your family would have never found each other.

Yea, I don't buy much into that either but Mom keeps telling me that's how it goes.

We hope you get lots of extra cottage cheese and kisses!

Dear Sammy, Congrats on 3 years! I was also rescued 3 years ago march 21st. I hope you get lots of presents, but it looks like you already got the best present and that is - A WONDERFUL HOME

Ricky Pepper said...

Hi Guys!

Mom said to tell you that she thinks you can get a kitty from jail too like we did! Mom said she just looks for kitties that are younger and playful so they enjoy playing with us instead of getting mad at us. She also said boy kitties are much more accepting to dogs than girls, at least from what she has seen.
Good Luck!

Paws & Kisses,
