Today is my birthday, or what passes for my birthday, as I was obtained from the shelter and my origins remain a secret.
This is how my family is celebrating my anniversary: by doing nothing.
It's all Dad's fault.
Dad has some friends in town, who are coming to dinner and ruining any chance I have to be celebrated. I supposed at my age, approximately Six, this is the best that I can hope. I can't possibly leave. Dog's at my ripe age don't exactly fare well in a Shelter. No. My family could turn me into an outside dog, tethered to the end of a rope, and fed kibble every other day, and that would be better than the chances I would face at the Shelter. My family now holds all the cards!
Mom has promised that I shall receive my due Birthday Celebration after the guests leave. It has happened that other family members have at times had to put off Birthday Celebrations for various reason; mainly due to Dad being out of town -- the general pattern being that it is Dad's fault. It's not like I have zero hope that I won't receive SOME Birthday Celebration; after all my siblings have behaved far worse than I have and still received gifts.
In the meantime, I shall examine myself for gray hair. I shall sigh at regular intervals, to ensure that Mom feels a full measure of guilt for casting me aside. And of course I will plot for an even BIGGER Birthday gift or gifts.
