GOTCHA DAY! Tasha the Queen of the Urban Jungle

practicing for the Olympics
 One year ago today, the DWM (Ginger, Chip and Thai) travelled to the wilds of SE Pennsylvania to pick up a foster dachsie.  Unfortunately, the one to be fostered was adopted, but another remained- one look at Dad and she started jumping for joy and barking to get her little paws on him.  Dad obliged by putting a leash on her collar, and she leapt into his arms and licked his face (obviously he had not washed his face properly and she recognized this).  On the four hour car ride back home, Tasha quickly settled in with the DWm, enjoying McDonald's nuggets and behaving like a spoiled royal.  22 hours later, WHN was forced by the Dynamic Duo (Dad and Tasha) to call DRNA and admit that she had failed as a foster again and that Tasha was going no where.  Tasha has, in this past year, brought great joy to our lives and has been of great comfort to WHN since Ginger and then Thai left for the Rainbow Bridge.  She and her spiritual twin, Miss Lily Belle, share their Aunt Cindy (Blogville's World's Greatest Quilter) graciously.  Tasha has become Queen of our hearts, the Queen of the Unstuffed Stuffed Squeaky toys (star pupil at the Field Dressing Academy run by Ernie, Frankie's little brother).  She is the
Queen of the Urban Jungle and the neighborhood has learned to fear her roar as she announced that she is awake each and every morning.  Last, but not least, she is the beloved sweetheart of Shiloh, from Team Beaglebratz, and is already planning her first trip to Kansas to see him (right after she figures out how to get back to her BFF, Miss Cindy!) Tasha, Happy Gotcha Day baby doll!!!

Dear Sweet Tasha..... We wish you a very blessed Gotcha Day! How does that quote go? Who rescued who? It was karma, it was all meant to be.

You bring so much joy into all of our lives and of course, being a totally awesome and beautiful girl (and my spiritual twin) doesn't hurt either :)

Your family loves you and so do we!

Wishing you a long and healthy life filled with love and Milk Bones.

Lily Belle

That's really sweet. No entity on Earth is capable of breaking up a dog in-love and a dad who's made up his mind.

Happy Gotcha Day.

Huggies and Cheese,

HAPPY GOTCHA DAY TASHA! I had to shout because I'm so happy you became a Dachsie With Moxie a year ago. I miss your sweet snuggly self (well except for that little incident on the bed). Make sure mommy spoils you properly today since daddy is far away and can't help with it right now. Sorry we couldn't make the escape when I was visiting.

Love and kisses,

Aunt Cindy your BFF

Tasha, you hit the Super Jackpot the day you joined the DWM! There is no family with more love to share, adventures to enjoy, pampering to indulge you with, or joy to fill your heart than the one you now call your "Forever" family. And they are blessed with the addition of your attitude and special uniqueness. Happy Gotcha Day, we wish you many many many many more!
