Happy Birthday Uncle Jesse

What a beautiful morning. The sun is shining and there's a cool breeze in the air. We had a minor setback this morning (see Raffle's Diary), we had brunch instead of breakfast. But Mom's home now and we are content to just take a nap.

Mom's brother, Uncle Jesse is having a birthday today. He's 50! Wow - he's older than dirt. He's having a good day, he's at an auction. He loves that kind of stuff. I hope he finds something cool. Mom just sang happy birthday to him - she made up this birthday song for him years ago - something about living by a zoo and she sings it to him every birthday. It makes him laugh, knowing that someone is just a little bit stranger than him. Mom and the rest of the family are getting together to celebrate next weekend.

Sunday is going to be nice as well so Mom said she would take me to the dog park by the river tomorrow. I'm so excited. It is my favorite place. I can run free through the woods and then Mom and I run in the water up to our ankles. Mom never has to worry about me off leash as I will run past her and look back and then run back to her and keep going back and forth. I'm never more than 5 people lengths away, I don't want Mom to get lost. When I can smell the river, I look at Mom, she gives me the go ahead and we both run down the hill to the water. The other dogs are a lot more rambunctious than me so Mom and I always try to find a quiet spot. Poor Raffles, can't go with us. He's not as dog social as me. And Maleka would take off on Mom, so it's always just her and me. I enjoy that. It's like when I was a puppy and it was just me and Mom. Those were the days.

Well Mom has to take Grandma to the pharmacy and the grocery store this afternoon so I'll be able to rest up for our adventure tomorrow. I'll let you know if I see any pirates or find any sunken treasure.
