In my defense…the high today is 16 degrees.
Leaving the house? Not gonna happen.
Staying inside making a birthday hat and having a photo shoot sounded like waaaaaayyyy more fun.
Back to the birthday girl…
Today my best friend on four legs turns 3. Well technically, 21 in doggie years. But shhhhh….don’t tell her. She doesn’t know she’s a dog.
It seems like only yesterday that we brought this little ball of fuzz home.
It didn’t take long before she stole our hearts.
Riley is the best dog. She wants nothing more than to please and to be loved on. And to chase tennis balls. Endlessly.
When we come downstairs each morning, she greets us at the bottom step with her blanket in her mouth, whimpering and wagging her tail 90 to nothing.
It’s like the seven or so hours without us were just too much to bear.
When I’m at the computer, she comes up beside me and nudges her head under my arm over and over until I rub her head and ears. Then she plops down beside me and is never more than two feet away from me at any given time.
She’s a loyal companion and a faithful friend.
So today we are celebrating with extra ear rubs and indoor playtime.
And probably an extra rawhide or two.
Of course, we don’t want to get carried away with the celebrating…
Have a beautiful day, friends.
