White Dog really believes today's closure of banks, government offices and no mail delivery is in honor of her Gotcha Day yesterday; not because of President's Day. She knew not to bother watching for the mailman and was unconcerned when Steve did not wake Michael for school this morning. In her egocentric world this is, of course, a day designed to allow one to nap, relax and recuperate from the attention and festivities of yesterday's main event...White Dog's Gotcha celebration! It was especially an opportunity to explore (while lying like Cleopatra on her custom made white afghan) the tasty treats and tennis balls that Richard had brought without having to share with Dragon!

I agree -- it is in honor of Gotcha Day AND President's Day! Glad you are relaxing after the big day!

Wait, it wasn't because her Gotca Day was yesterday? We totally thought that too! OF course we think the fireworks on July 4 are for Virgil's birthday, so we could be wrong I guess!

What a special event!

We saw 'woo' on Westminster!

The announcers said how nice Amerikhan Eskhimos are!

I knew THAT already!

It must be great to have a day to recuperate after all the festivities of your Gotcha Day. Ooooh, a personal afghan? I bet it's very cool!:)

Ah Ha...Excellent reasoning. We must say now that we think about it we agree with you!

hey Siku Marie,

Sounds like you had a lovely day spending it with your family and recuperating from all the great fun and food of your Gotcha Day celebration! And why not claim this holiday for yourself? President's Day is a human holiday, and since we are not humans, just make it a dog holiday for yourself!

Your very own comfy afghan? Lucky dog!

Dear Queen Siku: Don't you dare let anyone tell you the day is not ALL ABOUT YOU!!! It is, it will be and that's it! SOME day we may train our humans to just accept our birth right of indulgence and pampering.

Love you my BFF!

Of course the day was designed just for a day of rest and relaxation for White Dog. We celebrated along with her.

Hi Siku - why just limit it to one day? It should be *Gotcha Month*. If humans can celebrate events, so can we -- canine style.

Hugs and Yips.
Cappy ~~ and Oliver too

Yay, Happy Gotcha Day, Siku Marie! We hope you had a great day yesterday.
