Thanks to everyone who left happy birthday wishes on George’s Facebook page today. It was a total surprise.
Today was his third birthday and it just feels like we’ve known him much longer than this. A lot has happened in these past three years, but I count getting this dog as one of the best.
I think he’s a teenager now in dog years.
I also think my husband wanted me to get party hats and invite some friends over. Or bake a cake or something. I asked him if he was kidding and he said yes.
But I wasn’t so sure.
This is not a new toy but it’s one he loves. (George does not need any more toys, believe me.)
He loves the ones where the squeak still works.
And I like the beginning of this poem, by Emily Dickinson.
I started early, took my dog,
And visited the sea;
The mermaids in the basement
Came out to look at me.
This was our sky on Friday afternoon. Saturday brought blessed rain and we had a whole day of it gently falling. The ground is much less crunchy now.
So how was your weekend? Do anything exciting?
