Gotcha Day Boss

Entry Log 11

It has been 1 year since I moved to my home here in Canada.

In keeping with my "Gotcha Celebration" I am highlighting some of my most memorable events from this past year of...

being the Boss in my new home.

I am a busy dude so there are lots of photos to share.

Let's start here, with this one...

Mum outside of the St. Louis airport, the day she finally got to meet me in the fur.

Uncle Jay, Jeremy and I drove to St. Louis to pick Mum up

Mum stayed two nights at the 405 (Jay and Jeremy's house) in Tennessee.

While she was there she signed these.

The official documentation that the Boss has been adopted,
by Mum, from Midsouth Pug Rescue.

Thank goodness Mum can write cuz I don't know who would have signed them if she couldn't write.

Finally it was time to come home.
On the way back to the airport we stopped in at a friend's place in St. Louis.

It was at this time that a very popular photo, of me and Uncle Jay, was taken...

This photo was taken by our friend, Gina.

Of all the photos taken of me, Mum says this one is the most powerful and emotionally moving.
This one means the most to her.

 This is me saying good bye.

Me and Uncle Jay

Here is another photo of me in the backyard at Gina's house.

I made sure even then, that everyone knew I was the Boss!

and... even back then, I was extremely handsome

When I arrived home to Canada I was greeted by my new brother, Winston Wilbur

Little did he know that I would become his Boss and protector.

My older brother and me on my first night home

Here I am in my very own dog bed the first day I arrived home!

a little tired from the long journey but still incredibly handsome!

Throughout the year, I have accomplished a lot in being the Boss

Got my own official Boss life vest

I am competition for David Hasselhoff!
Dipped my paws into the Pacific Ocean

This salt water makes me look handsome
Made it onto local TV.

The line up for my autograph starts to the right of the camera man
Attended Seattle Pug Rescue gala and had my tarot cards read

I seem to recall the gypsy telling me I was a "little spit fire"
... another name for Boss
Spent the summer driving around in our convertible

Look out ladies... 

I am sizzling hot while travelling in this car!
This car definitely makes me look not only very Boss but...
very good looking as well!
Spent many afternoons lounging with Mum

Life is good when you are the boss
Somehow I feel more like a "sandwich" here, than the Boss!
As the Boss, I also secured and protected the city of Vancouver

Someone needs to keep watch over this city!
And I shared my bed with Winston

Sharing is one of the duties of being the Boss
And one of the biggest highlights from this year...

My trip to Sacramento to see Uncle Jay and Jeremy

These are just some of the events and activities that I have experienced this past year.

And you know what?

It all started when some good samaritan stopped to pick me up off the Sam Cooper Blvd in Memphis, TN. That action alone, put into play a series of events that changed my life forever.

For those that want read my full story... Sam Cooper, the full story.

So today I should take the day off from being the Boss, to celebrate my day!
But I don't think I will take the day off cuz...

I am Sam Cooper
the Boss of my Gotcha Day!
