Bambi's Gotcha Day

Thirteen years ago I brought a very sick (about 5 months old) puppy home from the local shelter. She had been adopted out 3 times before me. I was her 4th chance. She was real sick with kennel cough!!! The vet said she would have been died in a couple of days if I had not come along. Of course she went straight to the vets before she came home to her forever home!!
She has been the most wonderful dog anyone could ever want!!
I love her so much but then I am like that you know!!

Hope you guys have a great week-end!!
Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern

  5. Awwww! Happy Gotcha Day, Bambi! Just found your blog from Kim's at Golden Pines. How lucky for me to find you on such a fortuitous anniversary!

    We rescue our pups and they are the joys of our lives. They reward us more than they'll ever know. We've kind of "accidentally" ended up rescuing "Olden Goldens"....the youngest we've rescued was our Milo, who was 9 1/2 when he joined us. It will be three years come August!

    Best wishes for a great weekend!

  6. Bambi had a bit of a tough go of it, in the beginning. So glad she found you, Fern!!


  7. Hugs to Bambi on her special day, and hugs to her special Mom!!!!
    Happy Weekend, Girlfriend!

  8. What a lovely story Fern. She is a beautiul, happy dog.
    Have a great weekend,
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya, Maggie an Gail

  9. How wonderful you are Fern, to give this beautiful dog a wonderful life. The two of you are blessed to have one another. Bambi looks a little like my sister's dog Louie.

  10. Happy Gotcha Day! What a great life you have had with people that love you so much! Enjoy!

  11. It was just meant to be, wasn't it? I always love when someone like you sees past the dog that's in front of them and sees the potential and what's in their heart!

  12. Hey Bambi & Fern!
    Wow, what a great day for both of you! Happy gotcha day to you. Sometimes fate steps in and matches us up to perfection! Enjoy each other every day.
    Grr and Woof,

  18. Fern - thanks for stopping by my blog and pointing me back here - somehow I missed it when you updated last week! I do try to keep on top of these things, but sometimes fail. :)

    Happy Gotcha Day! What a wonderful thing that you did for Bambi. It would be sad that she'd been returned three times if the story didn't end so well. :)

  19. Happy Gotcha day to both of you! How lucky and blessed you are to have each other.
    Fern, you are truly my kinda friend!
