Monty's Gotcha Day!

Today is Monty's Gotcha Day!  Can you believe it has been 3 years since I looked at a little pup on AZGRC's website, turned to Aaron and said "Can we adopt him?"
Dad said yes.  I is a lucky pup.
We decided we would throw Monty a Gotcha Day party!  It started with new collars:
Red Paisley for Sam
Green Monkey's for Monty

Of course, you can't have any kind of party without cake...
BarkBox supplied this one
It was easy to make.

In which Mom tries to get fancy....

The boys loved it!
Chomp chomp chomp...
Chomp chomp chomp...
Then, we moved on to presents!
Our April BarkBox came just at the right time!
Monty loves these hedgehogs.  They fit just right in his mouth and the wheezing sound is his favorite.  They are also the toy he is least likely to shred.  We buy him one every chance we get.
Dis mine, okay?
...and of course, Sam got a toy too!  Don't let his smile fool you, we know what he is thinking about this sock monkey!
Sock Monkey spotted.  All systems set to "Destroy".
There were other treats to enjoy as well...
Duck Jerky?  Please!
...and pretty soon the boys were tired and ready for a nap!
Dis boy gets no privacy...
Happy Gotcha Day, Monty!  We love you!
