Happy birthday to ME! Yup. It’s my special day. Parteeeeee. But first – a complaint…
Einstein told me that dogs at the age of 7 are considered veterans. I don’t like that term. First of all, I was never in the military. So I’m not REALLY a veteran. And I don’t like the term “senior” dog either. I mean I’m still wild and crazy. I haven’t slowed down ONE bit. Age is just a number. That’s what my human always says. Unless….being a senior dog gets me discounts at the pet store. Cheaper biscuits? I’m in.
My human was looking through some old video footage and she found a couple of baby vidoes of me. This one I have posted before – but I’m so adorable it bears re-posting. Note the old carpet – with the chewed corner. HEY – that was BEFORE the FG!!!!!!! Anyway…..that was several carpets ago….
This one was newly found old footage. Here Einstien is teaching me to talk. I catch on quite quickly. And you can also see Paxton’s big head for a second or two:
This one is only10 seconds long. It shows me looking utterly dazed but oh-so-cute:
Yup, I’ve grown up a bit since those old days. Look how different my coat color was – I was a lot darker back in my early days. And my how the world has changed. When I came along, my human had like 6 Friends on Facebook. And she has LOTS more now – all because of me. I’m a Friend-magnet.
Today for my birthday, I have a request – just like last year. That every reader does one nice thing for someone else today. And as I have wished in the past – it doesn’t need to be anything huge- like giving a charity a contribution (although that would be nice!) – it can be as simple as holding a door open, smiling at someone passing by, calling an old friend, sending someone a quick e-mail greeting, playing an extra game of fetch with your dog, giving your dog an extra treat….and think of me when you do it!
Today is a HAPPY day. But tomorrow, please make sure to read my blog and I’ll tell you about a problem I am having….But before you worry – NO – it is NOT health related.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
