Spotty’s Birthday Celebration
Ok, so today was my birthday! I’m officially no longer a puppy! And even though I miss my girl and my family today, I had a pretty nice day with my extended pack and Pam!
As we got up- at 4am, due to Liberty and Freedom jumping on Pam and getting her up. We all started to bark and jump around so Pam could not get back to sleep.
From that point on, I was wished Happy Birthday by everyone, Liberty gave me my first Birthday KISS! If Pam wasn’t half asleep she would have gotten a photo of it! But she gives kisses everyday so maybe she’ll get a shot another day!
So Spree and I stayed outside a little longer, we had our breakfast outside- Pam likes to separate us so that no fights over food break out. She says she doesn’t want to see anyone hurt! When we are not here, from time to time, her pack eats outside too, or so they told me!
As we were outside, Pam and her pack did their doga session. We do our doga and meditating when we come in as well. We need to show her (all of us that is)just how to do the Downward, and Upward Dog moves just so. Every morning we make sure she sees ALL of us stretch and watch us as we do the moves CORRECTLY!
Later about 7am, Pam and her pack, or three pack members went on a run. The rest of us were in the house in the AC cooled house, although the temperatures were not that hot out, thankfully. As we were left alone, Pam cannot lay blame on exactly who did it but WE got into her pen and marker, and a few papers. We didn’t totally destroy anything but we had our rambunctious fun! Pam puts things away- like her camera, and computer so we can pretty much go wild! We do have to watch out for the TV though and not chew on any wires. There are a few to speak of, but Pam wants to keep her house dog friendly!
When they got back from their run- a short mere 3 miles. We had our NICE CREAM treat, and Pam sung Happy Birthday to me, later I got a video from my family which I watched on Pam’s phone- yes, a dog used an iPhone (I think Steve Jobs would have appreciated that one!) And I gave her phone a bath, my tongue just slobbered and cleaned her screen off, BOL!
We refused to come in as much as Pam wanted so we got to stay outside most of the day! We had to go in when Pam went to the store to get a bag of dog food for her pack though, then when she got home we all ran out right away. She always makes sure she closes the gate so we don’t escape to keep us safe, as well as other dogs passing by. speaking of which, her neighbor walks his dog- and remembers me from the beginning of the year and is so surprised at how big I got! Mr and Mrs Quinn loved seeing me again, and Abby loved it too!
As we were outside, Pam gave each of us a special treats she picked up, since she wanted to get a special birthday treat for us to share- also since she shares her birthday with her pack on August 25th. So we each had a few cookies. I sat for my treats and shhh….but I got one extra cookie since today was my birthday! Here are the cookies we had….the only thing with these are that the coloring can color our poop, but since they don’t have them everyday, Pam felt it was okay to give us!
My Short Walk
Towards the end of the day around 4pm, Pam took my on a short birthday walk- now it was just down the corner and back but she wanted to see if she could handle a leash walk with me. She said I did fairly well. And having three dogs run with her and pull her towards the squirrels and rabbits every so often, handling a little tug here and there from me wasn’t too bad.
It was also short because Pam was also up since 4am (12 hours, and her day wasn’t just sitting around!). So I understood that, also she had to keep her shorts from falling down around her ankles so I had take it easy! (I didn’t want a show)- thanks MOM for helping motivate her to do Beachbody and Shakeology!
The rest of the day we were outside for our second meal and then with our pack, and when we came in I played with Justice a little,
Now we are sleeping as I told Pam what to type up for my blog here! And we’ll let Pam work on things, while the tv is on and we listen to the tv- Everyone Loves Raymond- or today it should be “Spotty” right Aliya?!?!?!?
Ok, so that was my first Birthday, so even though I missed my girl and my family- my pack here made my first birthday ever so special! And a pretty nice happy and healthy tail waggin’ day, until tomorrow! Hope (it looks like you had the same!)
