Happy Adoptaversary!! Giveaway!

Ziva's Gotcha Day Giveaway!

I know we just did the #SquishyFaceContest, but this one is going to be a bit different.  
It's a giveaway of Ziva's favorite things!

Naughty mommy, how could I have missed my sweet little girls Gotcha day?! Must've been all the stupid school/graduation stuff going on in my brain...I can't wait to finish!

This summer we have lots of plans!  Last year we put together a Summer 2015 Bucket List, you should totally check it out!

We're right on track with our agility goals, Ziva, Dz Dog dad, and myself just finished our third (? I think it was third, could've been forth...they're starting to blend together...) six week agility session. Ziva is progressing great! She is super flexible and able to switch between hubby and myself easily for courses, I've needed help doing this at the same time as school. I've worked with her the most, we generally always go to class together, but the last couple weeks hubby has been going with her solo to class. Well the session just ended and we are switching to private lessons! We talked it over and decided private lessons with free use of the agility barn during open hours would be easier on our schedule and allow us to practice more.
We're hoping to do our first agility competition this summer! 

Whew though, a whole year we've had our little girl! She's bloomed and grown so much!

Here is the first picture we ever saw of Ziva, previously named Honey.


Many of you know we were very selective in choosing a little sister for Dante, and she is perfect! We could not be happier! Here is more about Ziva and how we picked her - A New Sister

Ziva's First Day Home


Dante and Ziva hit it off right off the bat. 
They have been inseparable since!


It's hard to believe this previously super shy golden princess has come so far out of her shell, we've learned a lot from each other, accomplished great things together, and made mistakes. But through everything she has been wonderful, loving, and the perfect sister for Dante. 

In order for you to celebrate with us 
we put together a basket of 
Ziva's Favorite Things!!

Open to U.S. only.



We have a winner!! 
Congratulations to Ann! 
We will be contacting you shortly!
