HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Dear Diary,

Me, as a pup
I feel like a puppy again.  The days are cooler and I'm loving it. Mom says I'm much more active.  She says autumn has brought me back to life.


I love the fall smells and mom laughs when she hears me snorting. 

 I. Can't. Help. It.  


 Today is a special day.  It's my birthday.  And though I'm feeling like a puppy I'm really 8 years old today!!  

Seriously.  I don't look that old, right?

I'm not sure why there's such a big deal about birthdays around here.  But I'm not about to question these weird traditions.  All I know is..  Today I went to Dairy Queen and got ice cream AFTER I went to the tennis courts to RUN!! 

 "Gracie's Special Day", according to mom.


Dad wasn't happy because I drooled on his good shirt.


But I got my ice cream, and that's all that really matters.


After a short wait... of course...


And then the prize...  


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!

Happy birthday Gracie! I love your birthday ice cream; it looked like it tasted good! Koda will turn 8 in December so he's not that far behind you; you guys are both spring chickens in my book!

Samson and I Say: HAPPY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR GRACIE, AND MANY MANY MORE.
Do you want to know something, both you and I like younger guys!! Samson's three and today is my hubby's birthday: He's only 66! So you and my hubby almost have the same birthday!
Samson read your letter and wants to let you know that you are his one and only too. He was just worried about that other guy, but after he read your letter and after Puddles is on her way to jail herself, he knows that you are his one and only true love. Tomorrow he will post all about it on my blog. So you have to ask you mom to let you read it.
You are such a cute dog and I hope you had the best birthday.
