Toby's 4th Gotcha Day

Toby was adopted from Front Street Shelter in Sacramento California on May 29th, 2013. Well, he was technically fostered on that day, but that's the day he left the shelter to his forever home so we celebrate it as his gotcha day every year. 

May 29th, 2017 was no exception. We woke up late because it also happened to be Memorial Day and I had the day off. We had a schedule of activities planned for the day; first, put on the birthday bandana, then take a birthday walk, then come home and get ready to go see my family to continue the celebration, and on our way there we would stop at the Doggie Bag to get a doggie cookie, then we would go to Petsmart to get a birthday toy and then to McDonald's for the birthday plain McDouble, and then we would finally head to my family's place so that Toby could spend his day jumping (because we live on the second floor) and eating and being loved on. 

The day didn't start exactly how we planned. I could not find his birthday bandana, so he ended up wearing one of his other bandanas on his birthday walk. While we were walking, we heard a lot of dogs say "Happy Birthday" to Toby as he walked by (or at least that's what we think they said haha)
