Yesiree today is my birthday! I am now ten years old. I am older than Far Guy if you count in dog years.
Here is my birthday photograph!
I am doing great for being ten. I have some arthritis especially in my front left shoulder and one of my hips. I take a special pill everyday to help.
I wake someone up every morning when I have to go out…a nose in the face usually wakes one of them up. Then I come in and wake the other one up…so they are all awake. They watch the morning news half asleep…sometimes we all take another nap. Then it is time for breakfast…I can usually get a bit of peanut butter toast from Far Guy and a sliver of cheese from Far Side….then it is time to get the mail. After mail we play ball and most days go for a long walk. I play ball off and on throughout the day and then we might go for a ride…at 5 to 5:30 PM someone should be cooking cause I am getting hungry. I keep them company in the kitchen by dropping my ball so they can kick it for me. I get a treat after supper IF I have finished all my food. Then later in the evening IF I whine I can usually get another treat out of one of them. Sometimes they forget and they each give me a treat…those are really good days!
I am rarely left all alone. I
cry howl carry on like I am dying whimper loudly. Most days I go along in the car…unless it is too hot.
Here are some great photos of me!

Spring of 2005, Far Guy is teaching me how to “drop it” in his hand. We worked on that a really long time…I finally got it and will drop a ball in some ones hand…BUT I will try to fool them …I would like them to try and grab the ball out of my mouth. It is not allowed but I still try.
Here I am in the daisies! Summer 2014
Here I am stalking a ball…waiting for it to be thrown. October 2014
Did you know I am a singer? Well I am! I am probably singing Happy Birthday to me!
