Another Birthday..

Thursday, October 04, 2012

I know, I still need to put up pics and a blog about our trip to Texas. And I will. Soon. Really.

First though, here's my birthday girl.

Magnificent Moonlight Millicent

If we had registered the girls with the AKC (yes, they both came with papers way back when) that was going to be Millie's fancy name. She has that lovely swirly gray/white/black brindle tiger-striping going on and she looks like she's beautifully lit by moonlight.

Millie's birthday is today. Maggie's birthday is Oct. 8. We have no idea when Bubbie's birthday is, so we're making it officially Oct. 6, so he can join in on the birthday week fun.

Each furbaby will get leave the siblings at home and ride in the car in the front seat to Petsmart so they can pick out a birthday toy all their own. (they usually do not get to travel without the other two)
Yes, they'll forget about the toy likely when they get home and the other kids get ahold of it, but it'll be nice for a brief time.
In other news.. This is going to be a busy weekend.

Tomorrow's my Friday off, so we'll go dog walking in the morning, then hit up packet pick-up downtown that afternoon.
Saturday we'll like do some debris clean-up at the shelter because high winds have brought down quite a lot of limbs and leaves.
Sunday I'll take Max downtown and participate in the Portland Half Marathon. I'm actually kind of excited and looking forward to it. I wore a little 13.1 pendant to work today to kind of keep it as a touchstone reminder of what's coming.

I'll be alternating between walking and intervaling, and I'll finish well and strong and on my own terms.

So, be patient a bit longer, and I'll share some Ms. Poppy time with you.

    Happy Birthday to the pups! We never registered our whippet either. We could never decide on a name other than Tucker.

I'm sure they love their trips to PetSmart.

    So sweet what you do for you doggies.

On special holiday, such as b-days and Christmas, etc...we buy Zhanne doggie ice cream. She gets so my yummy treats but since the ice cream take room up in our fridge she only get it on holidays. We stop buy her toys when she was about 7yo. She could not care less about them anymore. Her next b-day in January she will be 11yo

PS - hope you don't mind that I gave your dog a steak or maybe it is a squeaky-steak toy or maybe it is a bone. LOL!

    Happy birthday, Millie! Give her an extra pat and loving from me, okay? Looking forward to hearing about Texas and of course the Portland Half Marathon--go out there and remember to have FUN along the way. Wish I could be there to do it with you; maybe next year!

    LOL, looks like you are getting that "what are you taking my picture for Mom" from Millie.

And Ms. Poppy is adorable. Can't wait to see more pictures.

Good luck with the half marathon this weekend. You'll be awesome.

  Love the doggie bday celebrations - FUN! Also, it's fantastic that you're participating in a half marathon - you should be really proud of yourself! That's something that most of us may never do. emoticon

    I can't wait for Poppy time but meanwhile... Happy birthday to the fur kids! I love your idea of alone time with Mum. Hoping for pictures for them with their selection.

Have fun at the Portland Half Marathon. I'm sure you'll do well, especially since you're doing it on your terms. I think that's so cool.
