That's right, I'm officially 12 years old today! Well, I prefer 12 years young. When will people figure out that I'm still a puppy? A puppy with slightly worse eyesight, joints, and lower energy than I used to have...but a puppy all the same!
Anyway, let me tell you about my presents. First, a little while ago (almost two weeks ago by human counting), my Girl took the Little Boy to Petco with her. I know, I was mad that I didn't get to go with her, but she said there was no room for me in the car with her, her Sister, the Baby, the Little Boy, and The Mom. Whatever. But when she came back she and the Little Boy had new toys with them! I was so excited, because I haven't had new toys for a long time since Ony and Troy and I tore up the last ones. She said there was a toy for each of us dogs, but I happen to know that Ony and Troy aren't that into toys at the moment - so I get to play with them all. Let me tell you, I am having a blast! All three toys are plushies, and they all come with squeakers! Personally, I've never been that good at making them squeak, but I sure love hearing the noise when my Girl does it for me. The one with the squeakers on the ends instead of in the middle is my favorite, because sometimes when I grab that one I can make it squeak myself! How fun!
We had three or four days of playing chase, tug, and other games as much as I wanted - the best present of all, in my opinion. Then last week the Girl came and woke me up around 6:00 in the morning. I was very surprised, since I'm not used to seeing her that early. After she held me and pet me (heck, I'll get up any time of the morning for that!), I followed her out to her car and watched her drive away, just like I usually do. The only funny thing about it is, she hasn't come back yet. Everyone keeps talking about a place called "College" or "School" or something like that. Every time she goes there she stays away for SO long. I keep hoping they're confused and she's just gone for the day, because it's very boring around here without her. The Mom and The Dad (my Girl's pack leaders) are nice people and all, but they don't know my commands as well as my Girl does.
So anyway, my Girl missed my birthday, but she did call home and request that I get a very special birthday treat! The Mom has gone into town to get some yummy chews for me, because I LOVE chewing and my last chew bone is getting smaller and smaller all the time. So I guess it's a happy birthday after all!
