Today is the seventh Adopt-a-versary of my beautiful pitbull Mary of Bethany.
And I couldn’t let the day go by without mentioning it.
Seven years ago, this stinky little puppy was found wandering the streets of Solvay by a good Samaritan who delivered her to Fairmount Animal Hospital.
And lucky for me, a friend of mine works there. So she sent me a text letting me know about the filthy little pup.
The next morning, I drove up to meet her.
It was love at first sight for both of us.
Just look at those bat-ears!
She was a bundle of energy and her tail wagged like crazy when we met. And despite the fact that she smelled like a Port-a-Potty, I hugged the stuffing out of her.
(Then smelled like her for the rest of the day).
I let them know I wanted to adopt her. But we had to wait five days to make sure she wasn’t claimed.
Then, on October 22, 2010, I brought her home.
In honor of our seventh Adopt-a-versary, Mary enjoyed roasted chicken breast for breakfast this morning. And the cats were not happy about that.
She’s grown into such a terrific dog. And, thankfully, smells so much better than the day we met.
Mary is the joy of my life. And I can’t imagine what life would be like without her.
Adopt a dog.
You won’t believe just how much better both of your lives will be.
So happy Adopt-a-versary, Mary of Bethany! Thank you for making my life so much fun!
