Share "The Story of Me"

Hello Furrends! My momma came up with an idea to help me, Minna Krebs, celebrate MY Gotcha Day!
You see, her cannot remember da exact day I came to lives here, butt it was in late November. Sooooooo, I decided to pick a day that is easy to remember, and I chose Thanksgiving!!! Thanksgiving is perfect, cuz I am thankful to be here, and her is thankful to have me, AND I can be a bit of a TURKEY sometimes too!! Heeeheee.

 I wanted to celebrate my Gotcha Day with all you furrends, so when Frankie had da most BRILLIANT idea to share adoption stories......I said to myself " Minna, this will be the perfect way to celebrate Gotcha Day with your furrends" and myself responded "Minna, I think you are right"..... 
Sooooo, here we are, and here are the details 

  •  Write a post about "The Story of Me".....that means you can include how you were adopted or rescued or borned...or how you came to live where you are now. OR, you can tell us something about yourself that makes you, YOU. Or even a special foto. This is your "STORY of ME" so no rules about that!   And of course feel free to change it to "THE STORY of US" for multi-pet homes!!!!!!

  • Publish you post during Thanksgiving time, Novembers 25th.......since you and your humans are busy during that time, you can either 'pre post it' or post anytime during the ThanksgivingI week! (I will be celebrating all week long. heeehee) 

  • Be sure and leave me a comment or send an email, and I will keep track of everybuddy who pawticipates....cuz here is da BEST part!! 
    • In lieu of pressies fur my Gotcha Day, me and my momma are gonna put everybuddy's name in a dog bowl and randomly pick one pawticipant to receive The Story of Me Grand Prize! As the Grand Prize, my momma will contribute $50 Greenpapers to the Animal Charity of YOUR choice, and in your NAME!!! 

Don't furget about Frankie's pawsome shopping spree post! I am already planning on what I want to give my momma fur Christmas. Here is the link to Frankies post that explains it all! How fun that will be!!!!!   (You can also combine these two events in one post if you like)

and please feel free to SNAG my badge and Frankies, too!!    Help spread the word that BlogLand is going on a Shopping Spree and sharing our Stories of Me!!!!!

Hi Minna
Minna, what a wonderful gesture. We love the idea you came up with to give green papers to a needy dog instead of pressies for yourself. You are special girl.
We already snagged the badges & are proudly displaying the badges on our blog.
Love Ruby & Penny

Minna K - thanks for the great explanation of the details AND thanks for doing this - you and your Mom are so wonderful. We are going to try to participate, but the Momster is sort of strung out here with lots of stuff and we do need her assistance. You and Frankie are just awesome.

This is SO NICE of you to host this special event!! I just can't wait to share my story (though you have all heard it before, you are going to hear it again). By the way, did I ever tell you that our cat Tommy (he passed in 2009) reminded us of Snoopy. He had that same funny smirk and slanted eyes. He was quite a character ... but I digress.

Your pal, Pip

Maggie Mae and Max said...

In response to your question......

Hello Minna Krebs:

My Mom and I wrote up the Story of Me and my adoptination on our blog at and we would welcome you to take a look at it. We have been reading some other stories about dogs who found their homes and it is both of our favorite things to read. You can't beat a happy ending.

Cheers and hugs,

Stella and her Mom Jo
