Guess what, Guess What, GUESS WHAT!?!?!
I am eight years old today! I think there should be a giant party and everybody should come over and tell me how beautiful I am and give me stuff, especially yummy treats, which I would not share with anyone because princesses do not share.
Mama says I need to be polite.
OK. So I’d share with all of you. Princesses can be gracious if reminded.
But Mama has to go to work today so there isn’t going to be a big party for me. I’ll probably just get my regular dog food too. Sigh. It’s so stinkin hard to be a sheltie princess when the mama keeps going off for entire days at a time. I mean if a girl’s a princess in an empty house and no one sees, is she still a princess? Huh? I ask you? Not fair. That’s all I’ve got to say about the matter.
The only good thing about today is that my bestest dog walker friend is going to come take me for a walk at lunch! When my mama has to go away for the day she sometimes gets my friend to come over and play with me. That’s just so much fun! She comes with treats too…so I guess my birthday won’t be an entire washout.
And my mama will come home from work eventually and then we’ll play play play! I hope. She’s been pretty preoccupied lately. The whole truck thing last week got her really sad and I had to work double time to cheer her up. I did my best work at 5:30 in the morning when she seemed to need cheering up the most. A dog always knows that timing is everything. She’ll thank me latter when she’s in a better mood. She seems a bit of a grouchy pants at the moment.
Anyway…because today is my 8th birthday and because she has to work today she took me to my favorite park yesterday afternoon. It was a gloomy day but I didn’t care, I love going to my park and she lets me sniff as much as I want. It’s the best present she could give me. Here’s me next to some beautiful tall grass. I think I make the grass look even prettier, don’t you?
And just in case you haven’t seen me as an cute little puppy, here’s me my first day at home. I was 3 mos old and just as cute as could be. Mama and Daddy fell in love with me the first time they saw me, even though I wasn’t at all sure about them. I hid behind a big chair at my first mom’s house and watched them. But then I let mama pick me up and it was OK after that. I slept upside down all the way to my new house, and it’s been perfect ever since. I can’t blame them for loving me right away. Can you?
I know, I know…adorable…right?
So I think everyone should go get something yummy and treat themselves on me! Sort of my gift to you from me on my 8th birthday! Happy Birthday to me!
