The Seven Year Bitch December 10, 2009

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
That's right, it's a day that is all about me! My birthday!

Just between us canines, it took me a long time to figure out the whole human birthday tradition thing. My furry Mom was not so very sentimental about such things; besides I had to share my birthday with a whole bunch of brothers and sisters!

But after a couple of years of noticing that my human Mom got all sentimental and gave me lots of treats and toys around the first snowfall, I began to suspect that maybe this birthday thing wasn't such a bad deal. Maybe I should even try to figure out when it might come 'round again.

Now, I down right look forward to it. Gives me a chance to reflect on the joys of the year that has been, like where I've been and the friends I've met:

Of course, Mom says that I'm getting to be the age now where I ought not count birthdays anymore, but that doesn't seem fair...
Not when I've only just figured out what a gold
mine they can be
for me!

So, now that the first snow has hit the ground and stuck this year,
it's got me thinking back on the year that's been and
looking forward
to life as a seven-year bitch!
