5 sweet years with Hera!

…or else: Hera’s 5th “Gotcha Day”!

5 years ago, this day, we adopted the Queen of our hearts:


You can check last year’s Gotcha Day here: Hera’s ‘ 4th Gotcha’ day…

Hi all,

this is Hera!

I invite all my friends

to join me

for a special celebration!

[okay, don’t mind mom and her silly hat she made me wear! Weird humans, but whatever, I likem with their flaws.]

This is me waiting for my Birthday Cake…

C’mon mom, stop taking pictures and gimme that cake!!!!!


Good grief, they’re both singing to me now!!!!!!

Oh, there it is!!!!!!!

Yum yum….

…lemme lick up the floor [mom likes it clean!]

Oh, look, a new toy too!!!!

Now you see me, now you don’t!!!!!

Party! Yayyyyyyy!!!!!!!


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!

Mom just said that Sir Paul is also celebrating with me today, so I asked her for a dedication!

Here it is!

Happy Birthday to you too, Sir Paul!

  1. Happy Birthday, Hera! I could hear the party from the other side of the world – so much love and happiness brings magic to the world. I found the party by following the music and laughter, and was guided by the second star to the right, straight on to morning. Sending many hugs and love to you, Hera and your wonderful family.

    • Awww, thank you, Frank!!! Lots of head & tummy rubs and treats and love from all my (and mom’s) friends! Thank you for another Beatles dedication! Hey, didn’t they originally sing “Hera, my dear…”?!!!
      Mom says to tell you: Yamas
      I say: Woof!

    • Awwwwww….. I love ear and belly rubs, please stay here! Bring my friends too (I hope they don’t mind seeing you giving me belly rubs!)
      Slobbery kisses and tail wags!
      Hugs and love from me! Love my flowers!

  2. Happy Birthday Hera what a lucky girl you are having such great twolegs to look after you. May you and your humans have many many more birthdays together 💜💜💜

  3. She is such a beauty. And I love how she looks at you with such love – no, no… not because you have a treat. I can tell it’s how she always looks at you!

    • Awww, thank you, Dale! It’s exactly that look that melts our hearts and because of it, she can get away with anything! 😉 Hera here: Aunt Dale, I’m sending you extra hugs and slobbery kisses, I mean MANY extra hugs!!!! 🐾🐾🐾🐾❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤
