My MamaFigure says January 16th is an important day. She says this is my Gotcha Day! That Man says he doesn't know why it isn't televised.
This is how I came to live with My MamaFigure and That Man:
Two years ago my MamaFigure, who wasn't my MamaFigure right then, wanted a puppy real bad. She looked at puppies everywhere, but she said even though they were all real sweet puppies none of them 'captured her heart'. Then, one morning she woke up and said to That Man "It all came to me last night, it was like it had already happened! We are going to get a pug puppy, a fawn-colored little boy, and his name will be Mister Bean!" That Man said "okay".
My MamaFigure's friend told her where she could get a pug puppy. So, on January 16, 2009, My MamaFigure (who still wasn't My MamaFigure yet), That Man, the Grandboy and the Grandgirl went to another city in Tennessee to get a pug puppy. It was on a Friday and My MamaFigure even stayed home from work to come and get me!
This is where I come in....My MamaFigure saw three pug puppies in a box. One of them was a little girl, and the other two were little boys, and one of those little boys was me. My MamaFigure (she still wasn't My MamaFigure yet) said to That Man "how am I going to choose just one?" And That Man said "let him choose you." So, she picked up the other little boy first, and he squirmed in her arms. He acted like he wanted to be put back in the box! The Grandgirl picked me up first and I looked at My MamaFigure (she was just seconds away from actually being My MamaFigure) and I fell in love with her. I saw the other little boy pug scratching her and trying to get away from her and I knew what I had to do! When My MamaFigure took me from the Grandgirl, I rolled up in a ball under her neck. I didn't squirm at all!! That Man said "it looks like he's chosen you."
The next thing I know I was being carried out to That Man's truck BY MY MAMAFIGURE!!! The Grandboy and the Grandgirl held me in the back seat all the way home.
Here is a picture of me two days after My MamaFigure got me. I was nine weeks old.
My MamaFigure likes to take pictures of me. I always think I look pretty good.
We went to a pet store and I got to go in and everybody made a big fuss over me. I got my own bowls, one for water and one for food, and treats and a collar, and a leash, and two toys!
So, today we are going to celebrate my Gotcha Day! That Man says he doesn't know why WalMart doesn't cash in on this and sell decorations for people's houses.
