Today is an extra special day for The Boy and I: it’s Mocha Jo’s Furever Family Day.
One year ago, we adopted our little Mocha Jo, and all three of our lives were forever changed. To celebrate, we had a party, complete with a made-for-dogs peanut butter cake.
We also had party hats, which Mocha Jo wasn’t exactly a fan of.
At least not until her dad showed her that cool kids wear party hats.
But more importantly, there was cake and ice cream, which Mocha Jo was a fan of.
It’s hard to believe it has been a whole year since we brought her home, but it’s been a great year. The Boy and I really couldn’t have adopted a better dog. She is the sweetest and most humble dog you’ll ever meet.
It makes my heart happy that The Boy and I could give this once stray dog a better life. Between her parents (who are clearly wrapped around her paw) and her ever-doting aunts and uncles, two sets of grandparents , and all her friends (seriously, she has more of a social calendar than I do…), Mocha Jo’s life is now full of love.
She’s certainly gotten the happily ever after she deserves.
