Peanut the Birthday Girl

Her Doginess is living large this week. She's celebrating her first birthday in style with considerable ballyhoo & self promotion, accompanied by copious amounts of cake.

We're all getting extremely tired of her "It's all about me" attitude. Just yesterday she helped herself to a pound and a half of mozzarella cheese. She has no shame.

On the bright side, a considerable chunk of time is being spent on reflection. An intelligent dog wants to spend some time taking inventory. "What have I learned this year? Where do I see myself in five years?"

We're hoping that with age and experience, comes wisdom. The wisdom that might help her make better choices about where she poops and whether or not she eats it. And courage to face the days and years ahead, even the ones without Britt.

To Peanut, may she live long and prosper!
