Happy Gotcha Day

Some of my blogging pals (just a few...) who are rescues just like me.




















In honor of my Gotcha Day, we are posting the First Carol of the Season

Dog Rest Ye, All ye Rescue Dogs
Who have a home today
Whose humans give you shelter
And love and treats and play
Remember all the ones who wait
On this, my special day

Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine
Maybe like mine
Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine

And all you humans and ma apes who volunteer your time
In shelters and in transport drives, amid the dirt and grime
Who share your homes, your hearts, your love
And find them homes sublime


Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine
Maybe like mine
Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine



The need seems never-ending, the hurting does not cease
We thank those who do what they can to bring these doggies peace
And ask that when your gifts you buy
You save them a small piece

Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine
Maybe like mine
Oh oh please help them find a home that's fine


kisses
Gussie

Happy Gotha Day, Gussie! Koobus I was gotten from the local shelter, too. And if it wasn't for him, Koobus II, Koobus III, and I, Koobus IV, would not be here. So we all owe him a debt of gratitude.

I love your carols. You are so talented, Gussie.

Hope you and Teka have a great Holiday Season!

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Hey Gussie,
That is the best Christmas Carol EVER. We think we may have to borrow that this season. You must've spent a lot of your sleepy time working on that Carol and it shows. We think that Gotcha Day is a great idea. We "gotcha" Jack, we "gotcha" Homer J., we "gotcha" Abby, we "gotcha" and miss ya Bear, we "gotcha" and miss you Parker, we "gotcha" miss ya Chance, and we "gotcha" and miss ya Gordon. It's just not the same here with you waiting up at The Bridge.
