A Party! A Party!





We adopted Tinki and Lucky a year and a half ago, when they were three years old, but we never knew when their birthday really was. So we decided to decide when it would be. August 1st. And we baked a cake (honey-banana), and frosted it (Chime ate all the frosting off while we weren't looking!) and Jake found some old candles in the junk drawer (apparently the dogs are 183 years old--although that may be in dog-years). We sang the Happy Birthday song, and blew out the candles. Who could ask for a more celebratory celebration than this???

Then why are Tinki's eyes so red? And why does Lucky look so unhappy?

Was just reading back over some of your posts, and had to laugh, picturing the eating of the birthday cake!

I can't believe there was a time that I was actually afraid of dogs..all dogs. But over the years, I came to love them, and when I look into their faces, I can see human expressions.

Our own old baby is Precious, a longhaired daschund, and we are not sure of her age, either, but we've had her for about eight years, and have no idea about her age when we got her.
