This month we (are/will be) celebrate the Gotcha Days of my dog, Miley, and my Guinea Pig, Patches! Miley's gotcha day is on the 29th, and unfortunately she will be in the kennel because of a family trip (at least she will spend it with other dogs I think)! It will be her official 1 year anniversary with us! Also, her 1st birthday was on January 8th, and she celebrated lots of firsts in 2017 haha! I'm so thankful to have this dog in my life. She's my first ever dog (we have fostered lots of dogs before her though) and she has made me 100 times happier and less anxious than I was in 7th grade. We don't deserve dogs, they're too good. We don't deserve any pets to be honest!
Anyways, my Guinea pig Patches celebrated her 3rd or 4th year with us. Sadly her buddy Goldie passed away last year of old age, but I'm glad that Patches gets to live at least a couple more years with us. My other GP, Penny will be celebrating her anniversary with us in the summer (I have a bad memory so no exact date haha). My guinea pigs are wonderful, but Penny is just the naughtiest, most sassy girl (at least that's what PetSmart/Co told us). (she honestly kicks poo onto the floor! Penny, you're lucky you're cute). We are still working on taming but she still doesn't trust anyone! (she only accepts food from my hand and that's it)
Anyways, enough about Penny, I just want to say, thank you Miley and Patches for always being there for me (Penny and Goldie too). I hope that Sunshine will give me as much joy as you guys. I am also really excited for my 14th birthday on April 13th!
