Easter Part II - My Gotcha Day

Around here, it's not only Easter. It's my first Gotcha Day. As I understand it, they won't come on the same day again for almost ever. See,  it seems that Easter is not always on the same date, but it is always on Sunday. Gotcha Day will always be on April 4th which won't be on Sunday again for years and years. I think it's kind of cool to have my first one on Easter, though, Easter being about renewal, rebirth and endings really being new beginnings. Now isn't that exactly what everydog's Gotcha Day is all about?

Mine started early. I just didn't get to post about what happened because there were all these other things going on this past week. What happened was the man in the brown truck brought a box to us. Now this is not unusual and normally I don't take a lot of interest because those boxes are not for me. This one was and I wanted to open it right away. Sadly, my humans failed to get any photos of me being adorably eager to open the box because they were too busy asking each other, "How does she know it's for her?" and saying, "But she never does this. How can she tell?". What I want to know is with those weak noses humans have, how can they ever figure anything out? But even they can smell some things. Like for instance that "new car smell" which  humans seem to like so much. Well, this box just reeked of new bed smell. And I love a brand new bed. It was supposed to be for today, but I just couldn't wait. Delayed gratification is not so much a canine thing.

So I had to try it out. It was nice and squooshy.

It works well for belly rubs.

It's so comfy this way and...

Wait just a minute, there...this really won't do

And it's just as comfy this way. It's just what I wanted.

But that wasn't all there was. After we were all recovered from Easter brunch there was my Gotcha celebration. With cake and more presents.

Except I don't really eat sweets and I don't do fire. 

 Oooh. Is that cheese cake? It is!  You got cheese cake!

It's not really sweets. It's cheesecake and it's delicious!

So, if you're keeping score, that's a new bed, a pawsome assortment of chewy things and a squeaky sheep. And bacon, sausage and cheesecake all in one day. I'm feeling pretty lucky and content and, oh, yes, sleepy, right now.
