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.
