Happy 3rd Gotcha Day Levi!!!!!!!! (He was "Gotted" November 21st, 2020)

 Happy 3rd Gotcha Day to our super smart, super loving, super BIG, super stubborn, super cuddly and super crazy Levi “Rowdy”!! We survived 3 years !!!

🤣🤣🤣 In all seriousness you are the most affectionate boy we could ever hope to have, you definitely keep life exciting and keep us on our toes!!! We love you to pieces!!!!

There is a saying that goes "You don't always get the dog you want, but you get the dog that you need."(Cesar Millan) Levi has been a challenge and I guess that someone felt that my husband and I DEFINITELY needed a challenge!


  • When I stir eggs
  • When I add seasoning to food
  • Going to the groomer (he acts like the biggest baby and tries to run after me whimpering and crying when I am dropping him off, once he has his bath and blow dry he is FINE. It is the ONLY place where he acts like that.)
  • ANYONE walking in our hallway
  • ANYONE walking outside that he can see from our window
  • When my husband sneezes
  • When my husband's phone rings
  • The remote control
  • Hot weather


  • His Daddy. His Mommy. Roary.
  • His beloved bully sticks!
  • His girlfriend Sadie at Canine College (Sadie is a German Shepherd mix who has one ear that goes up and one that goes down. She is large and crazy like Levi lol. He follows her EVERYWHERE.)
  • Canine College and all who work there
  • Running in the snow
  • Being noticed and fawned over
  • Cuddling/Kisses
  • Hamburgers (which he only gets on his Gotcha Day and his birthday)
  • Playing Fetch
  • Taking Walks
  • His Cheese Stuffed KONG bone
  • The VET!! (Yep you read that right!!)
  • Riding in the Car
  • Our Mail Carrier


HAPPY 3RD GOTCHA DAY LEVI "ROWDY", "LEVI G."(as they call him at Canine College), "Mr.Levi." and some other choice names not fit for print!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!
