My 4th Gotcha Day Smell-a-Bration & Commentathon

Yippee! You came! You came! Oh, gosh, I’m SO super glad you could make it to my Gotcha Day pawty! Can you believes it was four years ago today that I came to live with mom and dad after being rescued by my Angel Donna Fostermommy?


As you can see, we’ve rolled out the purple carpet in your honor. (Red is SO claw-shay, don’t you think? Plus, I was afraid it would clash with my pawty dress.)


Speaking of which, do you like it? It’s a genuine “Martha Stewart for Petsmart” original!


Okay, come on in to my condo!


What? Oh, I know it might seem kinda small from the outside but trust me…it’s bigger than it looks.


Okay, first we have the pawlour. Remember, if the festivities get too crazy, you can always come here for some quiet and relax with a catnip cigar or a beef brandy.

Alrighty, follow me into the dining room.

Feel free to eat your noms here or you can take them into any other part of the condo that you feel most comfy.

Oh! Speaking of noms! Guess what? We were lucky enough to be able to bring the famous celebrity chef Mrs. Catmore all the way from Houndton Tabby.

mrs. catmore

Just look at this spread she’s prepared! Isn’t it Most Nomalicious?


Make sure you don’t miss the Gotcha Cake that my mom made. I know it’s not exactly the fanciest and most pawfessional cake around, but it’s made with luv.


Anyway, I know those noms might make you super thirsty. So right over here is the bar. There’s also some horse doovers in case you need a light snack.

Oh, wow! It sounds like things are really hopping in the club room. Follow me!

Look! There’s Teka Toy and Brudder Ranger doing the Samba!

And gosh, Smudge was so worried no ladycats would dance with him cuz of his…you know…bald spot. But would you look at him and Blogville Mayor Madi heating up the dance floor with the tango?

Oh, and if loud dance music isn’t your style, you can always relax in the spa room. We’ll have somebuddy on duty all night to do massages.


Now, if you pawty TOO hard, you are so Most Welcome to stay in one of my guest rooms.

bedroom wm

Or I can have the limo take you back home. Your choice.

Okay, I guess that’s the tour! Now go have fun! And remember, my mom is gonna donate one whole green paper to Second Chance (the rescue that saved me) for every comment made here today (up to $200) so feel free to chat and talk as much and as many times as you want!

Thanks again for coming to my pawty! It means the whole wide world to me!

  13. srch101f09

    What a PAWTY! Wonderful food, great digs, and brudder Ranger is keeping Teka busy and out of my furs. Miss Mayzie….as always you looks bootiful. Is you gonna dance later??? If so, put my name on your card pleeeeeeeesss


  14. Happy Gotcha Day, Miss Mayzie! Mom says your condo is a lot like the Tardis – small on the outside, but surprisingly roomy inside. We have no idea what she’s talking about, but are assuming it’s one of her nerdy and thus can be ignored comments! We think your digs are spectacular, although we are most keen on your Gotcha Day Cake – it may not be as spectacular as the other noms, but it was made with love, and that makes it extra special! We’ll just grab a couple of pieces of cake and head off to the spa for a bit. We’ll be back for the singing of Happy Gotcha Day!

    *kissey face*
    -Fiona and Abby the Hippobottomus

  15. Oops, in all my cleverness, I forgot to put “Mom” between “your” and “has”. Now your Mom has to add another grrreen paper because of my correction pawment. Ah, such is life. Mayzie, I hope you have a most wonderful time at your pawty! I really had no idea how spiffy and spacious your condo was! Your pawty dress is simply divine, and I hope you will be wearing it when we go for walkies today!

    Love, Auntie Gail

  16. PeeEss (since every comment counts, right?!?) – Sorry we’re so terrible about visiting bloggies – this whole ‘job’ thing of Mom’s has really put a dampener on our socializing. But since you are on Facebook, we always follow your exploits there!

  17. Happy Happy 4th Gotcha Day Mayzie. We wish you the best of everything today and everyday. Your cake looks delish if we do so say ourselves. Have a wonderful great Gotcha Day! Sniffs, The HoundDogs

    P.S….Your Auntie Gail is silly

  18. PeePeeEss: (Just think of this as helping more doggies be relocated to the lap of luxury) Does your condo have a cricket pitch – or a frisbee lawn? After our cake and some pampering in the spa, we’re going to need to get our zoomies out. (And since Puddles will be hanging off the chandeliers, we’d better take our fun and games outside… Heehee!)

  19. Kristy Marie

    Omg thank you for inviting me to your Gotcha Day pawty!! I is soooo excited to be here! Your condo is fabulous, just like you! Oh, and I love your dress too!

    Kristy and Milo (he’s a cat who thinks he’s a dog sometime) BOL

  20. Hiya gawjuss Miss Mayzie! Happy, happy gotcha day! We LOVE you and we’re so happy you were chosen by the most pawfect family that ever was! You inspire us every day – you are one amazing (and gawjuss – did we already say gawjuss – well, it needs mentioning many times!) brindle girl!!
    Schnauzer snuggles – JD and Max – xxx

    • Aw, boys…you always make my brindle furs blush! Do you think it’d be okay with your ladies if I got a dance with each of you later?

      • Oh, they’re not the jealous types Miss Mayzie and we think they’d insist that we both dance with the belle of the gotcha ball – and that’s YOU! We both got lots of practice in at JD and Izzy’s wedding so hopefully we won’t be treading on your paws too much!

        Gosh, we’re having SO much fun – your condo is so pawsome! 🙂

      • As longs as mi hubster saves mee some dances , mee lovs it wen hims holds mee close to slow dance

    • Oh, shoot, Maggie Mae and Max! I’m so sorry your momma has the sickies again. I hope she gets better soon. But gosh, it was ever so nice of her to let you guys come to my pawty. And it’s ESPECIALLY special since it’s YOUR Gotcha Day, too, Maggie Mae! Everybuddy! Come sing “Happy Gotcha Day” to Maggie Mae!

  23. What a Gotcha Day celebration! You are right…your condo is way bigger than it seems from the outside. I love your dress, Mayzie. You always look so pretty in ruffles. Thank you for inviting us to the pawty!

  24. Oh Mayzie! Happiest Gotcha Days to you! Did you know, my new trainings included massages? I’m volunteering to work my new skills in your spa room… Would anyone like a massage from a Corbin?

    • That. Is. PAWSOME! Can I pretty please be first in line? You know…being the Gotcha Day Girl and all.

      • Of course Mayzie! Plus, you technically ARE first in line 😉 hehe, I thought you’d have to fight Puddles, but it looks like she’s stuck on a chandelier! BOL!

      • Between you and me, I think she’s faking it. Prolly just wants me to call the fire department so their cute dalmation can come save her.

  25. Happy 4th Gotcha Day Mayzie!!!

  26. harrispen

    Happy Gotcha Day Miss Mayzie! Your dress is gorgeous and your condo is amazing. I can’t wait to try out all the rooms and then play outside. Maybe I can take some frisbee lessons from Fiona and Abby.

    • Oh, that’s okay. I got all new toys for the smell-a-bration anyway. They can destuff away. Hmmm…maybe I’ll go join them. Heehee! That Puddles! I made sure that they used EXTRA tough bolts when they installed the chandeliers so it should be okay. Just watch out for falling plaster. Enjoy your massage! Oh, and if you don’t think your wives will mind, do you think I could get a dance later, pretty please?

  29. Biggest condo EVER, Mayzie! Seriously, I feel like I could move in! So luxurious! Well, only the best for you, my dear! Have a happy, happy birthday! Eat lots of noms….Moby sends you big sloppy kisses!

    P.S. Where can a guy get a cheeseburger around here?

    • Head on over to the bar. Mrs. Catmore can make you one with any kinda cheese you want! And she’s got some SUPER stinky ones, too!

    • Pip

      Oops, that last comment is from me!

      I found the burgers, by the way, and nice touch with the CHEESE BAR!

      Let’s get this party started!

      Your pal, Pip

      • Oh, I knew it was you, Pip. Who else would wanna know where the cheeseburgers were? Heehee! By the way, your tux is Most Dapper! Now, where did Puddles go? Last time I saw her, she had gotten down from the chandelier and was digging in one of the potted plants. I keep telling her she doesn’t have to worry abouts burying her beer here.

  35. Rosie

    I’ll dance with you, Smudge …..swoooooonnn
