Belated gotcha day!

Well,we did not forget it-he got treats,hugs,and a 2 hour walk-free as can be.
But i want to say some things,i did not have time for then.On January 9th 2009,i woke up.I had been dreaming for a golden for about ten years,when there were not that many here,in Bulgaria.When i got him,were the first few years of a golden retriever boom here. Understandable,their popularity continues to grow.Anyway,i woke up anxious.I had lost three childhood pets in a short period(2007-2008)and i was still recovering.It was so hard losing them one after the other.. They were thirteen(Lora-a great,cheeky and very clever shepherd,14-My beloved male cat.I loved to just hold his perfect paw.And my first pet.I was six when i got him.Michael was small,grey,gorgeous,fluffy..probably a mix.A type,i've seen them around. Beautiful little dogs.Feisty and bitey,but very much loved.My first boy..Miss you all.
I wanted to say something about them,because Bell is wonderful,amazing,kind,loving,funny and really clever.They were all like that.Special. He was and is a healer.A true one.He helped me overcome the giant loss of three pets in short time.He brought hope and smiles.A new beginning.He continues to be doctor of hearts-when one sneezes or coughs,my boy runs to the rescue with a toy to comfort the person. He's a golden-he's most proud and is happiest,while carrying something-and,boy,does my boy looks gorgeous in his full stand,proudly prancing. He's so loving-he has friends,that only pet him and play with him,sometimes not even saying hello to me... A real star.I could go on,and on-i can't even begin to describe my lovely lad.I'll just say-i woke up,very,very early in the morning after we got him,and was later told to have asked-''Was i dreaming?Do i have a golden puppy?'' He had walked me up.By kissing me. You ARE a dream come true,my boy!Here's to many,many more years together. I love you Bell!
