Today is a pretty special day in our house.  Today is a "Gotcha Day."  I posted it on Instagram, but what is a "Gotcha Day?"

A Gotcha Day is a day that pet owners celebrate when they bring a new pet into their home through adoption.

In our case, today is the day that we brought our rescue pup Minnie Pearl home.

In most cases the birth date is unknown but nonetheless, it's the beginning of a new life so it's sometimes celebrated as if it was a birthday.

It was one year ago that we brought our Minnie Pearl into our family and we cannot be happier that we did.  If you are thinking about getting a pet, think about adopting one.  There is no better feeling in the world than providing a home to a pet that otherwise would not have had one.
