Mom and dad gave me a birthday party today! Mom left this morning and came back with 4 balloons. Two were blue, one was yellow and one was green. Mom picked all the colors that dogs can see. A little while later a man came to the door. I recognized him. It was Rob who is the president of MayDOG (Maynard Dog Owners Group). He had a box for mom. He gave her the box and left. Wow did that box smell good! I followed mom and the box into the kitchen but she put it in the refrigerator. Daddy came home a little while later and he had a box! This box smelled good too. That box went in the refrigerator too. Then mom and dad started making lasagna. Now I knew something was up. Sure enough, a couple of hours later people and dogs started coming to the house! They had presents for me too! My doggy friend Johnny B, Kitty and Zoe came. A dog named Cella came to. She is Johnny B's new girl friend. Johnny B's sister Sonie went to the rainbow bridge. I miss her because we were good friends and she always let me steal her cookies! Johnny B's mom and dad adopted Cella. Some human friends came too! One was Zoe's mom Christine Dorchak! She is the president and founder of Grey2KUSA! She is helping to shut down all the greyhound race tracks in the United States and also over seas! She is a very special friend. We all got to run and play in my new big yard. We had a lot of fun. Soon it was time for food. All the humans ate their food first and we dogs had to wait patiently. Finally it was time for the cake! We got served first. Everyone sang happy birthday to me. Daddy cut up big pieces of cake for all of us. I tried to get Zoe's cake at first! Mom called to me and I realized I had cake of my own. I grabbed mine off my plate and carried it off. I tried to eat it in one bite but it was too big. We all had seconds. Wow was that ever good! Then the humans had their cake. I think ours was better. Next I got to open my gifts. I got lots of yummy cookies, and a stuffed tiger. Then mom opened my gift from Johnny B and Cella. I got a $25 gift certificate to Pet Source! Wow, what an awesome gift. There was something else in my bag and mom started laughing! It was a stuffed cow. I couldn't believe it! It is exactly like the stuffed cow mom has! Yes, mom has a dog toy! Mom has a thing for cows. Daddy bought it for her for her birthday last year. Mom went upstairs and got her cow. They were twins. Everyone got a kick out of it. Now I have my very own! I was sad when everyone started to leave. Kitty didn't want to go home. Her mom, Donna, put her leash on and Kitty just laid down on the blanket and wouldn't get up. Donna tried for 5 minutes to get Kitty to leave. Finally Donna showed Kitty some cake and then she got up. Zoe stayed for a little while longer. I was glad. I really like Zoe. WE did a protest once together in Boston. We were trying to tell the Irish government not to sell greyhounds to China. Finally Zoe had to leave too. What a wonderful day. I think I will have sweet dreams tonight.
