The gotcha anniversary

One year ago today, Kyndall arrived in our home.  I recently heard this milestone referred to (by one of Kyndall’s sisters’ puppy raiser) as the Gotcha Day.  I like that.

It’s a little enigmatic. But what simple phrase could capture all the ground we’ve covered in this past year?  Traveling from this:

123014 lover

To this:

121715 one year later

With this particular girl, it’s been an almost purely pleasurable journey so far. Part of what we have to celebrate today is that we have almost five more months together. Also: no sign of her going into heat yet.

All I want for Christmas (well, almost all) is for her to hold off another week or so before she goes into heat. Then she can share a second Christmas with us. Our fingers are crossed.
