Happy Birthday Annie, Part 2

We had a great time, yesterday, celebrating Annie's birthday.   Our Granddaughter baked her a cake, I made the frosting and we had pork chops, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes for dinner.

Of course, Annie wasn't allowed to have sauerkraut...but she had a helping of pork chops and mashed potatoes.
Then, after dinner, we lit the 7 candles, sang happy birthday and watched as she gobbled it down.

First a taste of icing

 Then, it was SIT.....till I got a photo of her and her piece of cake.  Otherwise, it would have been a huge blur...LOL

I think Annie thinks her 'family' is completely nuts....but she plays along with us and we love her for it.

                                                           Here's to many, many more years, Annie!!

Happy Birthday Annie!!!

Just wanted to share a happy birthday tribute to our awesome dog, Annie.  It's her 7th birthday today and she continues to bring us so much joy and happiness.  I think I have taken more photos of Annie than I have of my kids.......probably not....but we've taken a TON.  Here are just a very few of the hundreds of photos over the years.

Cuddling up on my just washed and dried clothes......but didn't have the heart to move her.

Annie, has been a delight and a joy to our hearts and I just wanted to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to our wonderful AWESOME AUSSIE, Annie!!!


 Me and Annie......                  


As I type, my Granddaughter is making Annie a birthday cake!!   I know she thinks her Grandma is a little nutty....but she said, "I've never had a birthday party for a dog, before".

Well, it's about time for her to take part in a doggie birthday party!!! :-)   I told her we would do it after dinner, tonight. 

I say, If you can't enjoy life.....what's the point??

Ever had a birthday party for one of your pets?  I would LOVE to hear all about it.

Have a great day, everyone!
