Today we celebrate Dot! It is her Gotcha Day! One year ago, we drove north to pick her up, we were her third leg in her journey to our house so she had had a longer day than we had but she was still in good spirits and excited to see us. In her one year with us, Dot has earned her CGC, her CD, her RN and her RL2. She has killed a squirrel, learned all sorts of tricks and gained a brother. She has been on a cruise in Lake Michigan, traveled along Route 66 and ridden in a horse-drawn carriage. She is remarkable for having done all of this with ease and gentility, grace and humor, some of these things with only a few months of acclimating to her new home. She is a princess in the house and a bird-fanatic sporting dog outside and we love both!
