      October 2017 Photo Contest

      One of the most important days in the life of our dogs is their GOTCHA! day. It doesn't matter if it's a puppy, a rescue or adopting in a senior, it's the day none of us will even forget.

      So this month it's all about GOTHCA! day. Post your best pics of the day you brought your new best friend home!

      Sophie on her GOTCHA! day.



      Bruce (RIP my boy) on his GOTCHA! day.



      Brooks on his GOTCHA! day.




      OK GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      One of the fondest memories I have is the ride home. He would not sit still, he kept insisting on climbing on me. So I said fine lets see where you are going. He climbed up on my shoulders and went to sleep all the way home. He is still very much like this too. He can be somewhere it is super exciting and go go go. However once he is alone with dad, it is like whew, I am safe I can rest now.

      This is a day or so after me adopted or rescued Georgia. She looks pretty happy not to be in a cage and at the park. I can't find any Cooper photos. They are on CD's buried in the basement.

      Thanks Barry!!

      I wish I had photos of my pups being held but it's hard to hold a 35mm camera and take a photo at the same time, at least for me.

      First photo- Chase. Always was a pretty solemn guy. I'm sorry it's sideways. Can't figure out why some are straight and others are not.

      Second is Lark on her gotcha day and the contest entry. An adventurer from day one!

      March 1, 2014. I still use this picture as my phone background. When we got home from puppy pickup with him he immediately picked up this green toy that was a little too big for him, romped around the yard, then looked up at me with his smile and I fell in love.

      great photos! hard to compete with puppies

      I had a photo picked out from when we met - but realized I can't use it as I didn't take it! (contest rule is you must have taken the photo). Nor did I take photos that night. Does first photo I took count?

      Tanya,

      First of all, who among us doesn't want to see Rocky on the day you met? I would love to see one of those photos, I'm sure you were busy that day!

      Secondly, we can post more than one photo but only one can be the "official" entry, and I'd say to please go ahead and post your photo of Rocky on the first day you were able to get his photo, assuming he hasn't aged several years from gotcha day to picture 2! Judges, FWIW, it would be OK with me for Tanya to use one of the first photos she took of Rocky, even if it was a day or so after his official gotcha day.
