Gotcha Day

Driving Home First Walk Checking out the Village Fireside Hound

After a nice tripe breakfast, it was a manicure, ear clean and a new collar.  What was going on?  Gill at the Gainsborough Kennels of the Lincolnshire Greyhound Trust then fed me a lovely chicken foot.  Everyone was being too nice to me.  My nose was definitely getting more and more suspicious.

I was then very pleased to see Richard and Caroline visit, a few ear rubs and while I had water they had coffee for Richard and tea for Caroline.

Then on with a new coat and a short walk to a rather nice red car with a big dog bed and blanket in the boot, well I did not need asking twice, so up I jumped.

After a short ride they took me for a walk round a new village I had not seen before.  A strange village as there are chickens on the High Street, walking around bold as brass!  I ignored them as I was still full from the chicken foot and tripe earlier.

After the walk instead of getting back in the car we went into this bungalow and I was introduced to each room.

I soon found a nice place to crash on the mat in front of the fire.

It was soon dinner time and Richard fed me some kibble, then after an evening walk they took me into a large bedroom, it had a large human bed at one end and a large dog bed at the other.

Richard and Caroline went to bed so I settled down on the dog bed.  It slowly dawned on me that this might just be my new forever home, with happy thoughts of this my Gotcha Day (Adoption Day as humans say) I went to sleep and dreamt of chickens feet and the High Street in which Chickens can cross the road without their motives being questioned.
