The year continues to fly by and somehow it’s now the first day of December. But it’s a happy day because it’s the birthday of my dogs Freya and Chloe. Well, it’s their “birthday” based on the vet’s best guess of their ages when they were rescued from the shelter.
And because they are perfectly spoiled pups, of course they got birthday presents. They each got a flat plush toy stuffed with sixteen squeakers each (one is an alligator, the other a squirrel), and they are supposed to be tougher than normal squeaky toys. Yeah … less than an hour later, three squeakers had already bit the dust and there’s green fur everywhere. They also each got a Nylabone – one is bacon flavored and the other is chicken. Freya’s favorite flavor is whichever one Chloe is chewing.
They both seemed thrilled with their presents, and I can’t believe my babies are now eleven years old. Time is definitely flying by too fast.
