Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing weekend! I had a long day of work on Friday so I just hung out with Little One all day Saturday. On Sunday I started moving things around again (in a different room) but this time Little One didn’t seem too perplexed. She might be getting used to it now.

And speaking of Little One… it’s her birthday today! She’s four-years-old!

So, Little One, on your fourth birthday I just want to say…

Thanks for being a ray of sunshine in my life and for throwing your welcome home party when I walk in the house (usually accompanied by an excited bum wiggle and a flop for tummy rubs).

Thanks for putting up with me when we have dance parties and for being my reading/writing/TV-watching buddy. (Well, thanks for being my buddy in general.)

Thanks for being the bubbly and kind pup that you are and for alerting me to the plethora of wildlife that cross the yard. (Thank you, also, for not barking as much at the plethora of wildlife as you used to.)

Thanks for choosing me to be your human so that I’d choose you to be my pup. I might be a bit biased, but I think we’re the best human/dog pair around.

Happy birthday Little One!

PS – I know that you officially are no longer a puppy and technically haven’t been one for a year, but just know that I will probably always call you puppy. I hope you don’t mind.
