…or else: Hera’s 4th “Gotcha Day”!
Today we celebrate 4 years from the day we adopted the Queen of our hearts:
You can check last year’s Gotcha Day here: Hera’s ‘Gotcha’ day…
this is Hera!
I’d like to invite
all my fury friends to the party
to join me
for a treats galore
[mom promises lots of those and a special cake]
If you wish you can add your photos too!
You’re all invited!
I asked mom to donate any money she’d spend for a gift to me, to other not so fortunate pitties, Jacomo in particular who needs an urgent surgery.
The fairy godmother who brought Hera to our home was Giota Brakoumatsou [Γιώτα Μπρακουκάτσου photo] from Pitbull Rescue.gr. Goes without saying, we are forever grateful to her and she has our undivided love! ❤️
To anyone who’s thinking of bringing a dog into their family, please adopt! Shelters all over the world are full of beautiful doggies [or cats] who need a forever home and wait for the right family to give them their FULL and UNCONDITIONAL love*! In other words:
Adopt Don’t Shop!
* take a look at he expression of that pittie on the video below and you’ll know what I mean!
PS. to anyone out there who feels differently about pitbulls, who is still not convinced that the problem is not the breed but the owner, please respect Hera’s day and don’t leave us comments about ‘pitbull attacks’ etc…

Happy Gotcha Day from Zeke and me!
How friggen adorable are those two videos? (How horrible to see how much these poor babies had to go through before being adopted, too… people are so cruel).
Lotsa love from Montreal! xoxo
Hera sends Zeke a kiss snd a piece of fish cake (she says it’s delicious and I’m taking her word for it cause the smell is yuck!)
Horrible indeed… I gradually realized that the main reason why this breed is used for dogfighting (other than strength) is their extreme loyalty to people, and for ‘people’ to abuse that loyalty and love in that way makes it even more disgusting!
Lotsa love from Greece… and some lovely cool breeze on a sunny day. 🤗😘❤🤗😘
Oh wonderful! Zeke loves fish!
So awful to use these beautiful beasts in such a beastly way!
We can use the cool breeze now (Though I know you guys are headed for hot and gross!)
hey, you know something I don’t? Do we have a heatwave on the way here?!!!! 😉
Don’t matter for now it’s just perfect. Not too hot with a slight lovely breeze!
ps sending you more!
Ummm. Greece. Summer. What more would you like?
Enjoy the lovely breeze!
Thanks… we have a whole week of this (at this point) in the forecast!
A ha ha yes, well… names can be deceiving! Clouds are all over the city today and I think next week is going to be rainy… whole week! 😉
Clouds or no clouds, come August, you’ll be cooking!
Ohhhhhhhhh…. when August comes! 😉
What a sweet face! You’re so lucky she adopted you 😉 xoxo
Well put and how right you are!!! We are so lucky she adopted us!!!! 😉😘🤗
There are no words to describe the deep love that a dog offers you without demanding anything (but it can be any animal since I have seen pigs, chickens, skunks considered to be domestic).
Hera is beautiful … and also very photogenic!
I still have to wait 4 years, then when I retire, I will pay a visit to the abandoned animal shelter and I already know that I will arrive home with a couple of dogs.
Hugs and kisses to Hera (and you, naturally!)
You are so right, my dear Claudine, no words to describe it!
So, that is your retirement gift! Sounds great!
Hugs and kisses to you and tail wags from Hera!
Happy Gotcha Day, Hera … may your special day be filled with treats and tummy rubs.
It was!!!!!! Thank you Frank! Hope all is well and you’re walking nice beaches!
🙂 … Sorry to say no walking beaches … even worse, no travel. Although we are not restricted, we remain COVID cautious. I haven’t been around WP much the past few weeks because my energy has been focused elsewhere. Hopefully that will change soon – but I had to stop by for Hera on her day.
I too hope your energy will shift direction soon! Here’s to that and thank you for dropping by! Hera and I are extra happy you made it to the party! 🙂🍷Yamas!
Such a sweet face! We do love our dogs and they deserve it. Tide is sending woofs and licks. I’m sending hugs! 🐶🐶🎾🎾🎁🎉🎊🎈Party time!!!xoxo
Hera sends treats and a piece of her birthday cake to Tide and tail wags and slobbery kisses to you!
I know it’s not exactly Hera’s Birthday, but it kind of is and there’s no Gotcha songs.
It looks like a birthday party, and Hera is so cute in her party gear!!!
You are right… to us it is a birthday, if nothing else, it’s a day of celebration!
We’re so happy she came to our home and so fortunate… She just makes our days sooooooo much better and happier!
On the party gear… she might have a different opinion but somehow she knows it’s for a pose [you wouldn’t believe what a patient and obedient model she is!] so she’s okay with it… well, she wouldn’t mind tearing that hat to pieces either! 😉
Love – many hugs and more
You know… Hera is an Art Dogs model!
Animals are such wonderful creatures.
Man…. not so much… but some of us try.
That might sound a bit snobby, but I make no apologies when I say: Don’t eat them, Don’t put them in factory farms, Don’t wear fur, well… you know …poor fish and whales.
In my heart and mind I know that every living creature’s life is made more whole and wonderful with kindness and love. ❤
Art Dogs model!!!! 🐾🎨
Not at all “snobby”! Respecting ALL beings could never be snobbish!
Your heart and mind are the kindest I know and I agree with you wholeheartedly!
🎂 HAPPY BIRTHDAY HERA!!!!! 🎂

Happy Gatcha Day, Hera!
🐾🐾Thank you, Trent! You can bring your fury friends to the party. We’ll have fun and lots of treats! 🐾🐾
Happy gotcha day Hera. She’s adorable and so sweet to put up with party hats and all.
Hi Tim, it’s Hera! Great to see you at my party! IKR, what was she thinking with hats and flowers… but I put up with it because of all the treats that follow!!!! 😉🐾 Thanks, on behalf of mom too! 🐾
I would wear that silly hat for treats also. Good going, Hera.
🐾You can bring your fury friends too!🐾
Spunk wants to eat the hat.
Hera too! ;-)🐾🤣😂
The Beatles wrote a song about her: Hera, Thera, And Everywhera. Howl about that??! 🎉🎊🎈🎂🐶🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨🍨😋
“I want her everywhere
And if she’s beside me I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere…”
😉 Perfect! 🐾
