|Gibbs fka CP Citron Celebrate his 1st Year Gotcha Day!|
Good Morning! Gibbs here! A year ago I was pulled from a life of fighting Naval crime and… Oh… wait… That’s the real Gibbs. Ok: A year ago I was adopted by two really nice people. Initially, I have to admit, I was a bit frightened, but once they got me to my new Forever Home, I found Lots of new toys, treats, and all the loving and belly rubs I could handle!
I quickly learned I could trust my new Mom and Dad as I settled in. Dad then took me exploring my new neighborhood. It was pretty interesting, and I even found a girlfriend on the corner, though I do still like to play hard to get. After I earned their trust, Mom and Dad allowed me to sleep at the foot of their bed. I like that - a lot!
Guess what? My new home also came with a brother, Alex, a funny kind of dog – I think Dad called him a “cat”? My brother Alex and I are constantly chasing each other and playing. He doesn’t play fair, but I usually win.
It isn’t all fun and games, though. Dad took me to this thing called “Obedience School”. At first I wasn’t too sure about all these strange dogs - most of which were larger than me – but, after a few classes, I started socializing with them more and more. I received lots of praises from the instructor, but what I really liked most was the treats! In the end, I got the diploma, but I think, truth be told, that Dad got trained pretty well too.
The other thing I like to do is watch TV, especially when dog shows are on. I’ll watch from Mom or Dad’s lap, next to them on the sofa, or up close, so I can see all the action.
All in all, it has been a fun year! I got to meet lots of new people, too. I got to go on a long car ride to a place called “Tampa” to meet my cousin, Carrie. I like going for rides, and get excited when I see my crate being loaded in the car! I just celebrated my 2nd birthday last month and I got Lots more toys, biscuits, and treats! BTW, have I mentioned I like squeaky toys??!!!
Thank You, Col. Potter and my Foster Mom & Dad, for rescuing me and preparing me for my Forever Home! Mom & Dad say they couldn’t be happier!
Gotta go! Till next time then… Alex and I will watch for what comes next and I’ll bring you the full report next year!
