Thank you for making this the Best Birthday EVER!!!

From my girlfriend Willow

Yesterday was the Best Birthday EVER!  I got a gazillion birthday greetings from my friends -- photos, videos, e-cards, a virtual birthday cake, and many other very kind birthday wishes.  My friend Tim took me to PetSmart and let me pick out my very own treat, and I went on a hike with Tim and Nicky.  Then I got to eat the treats!

From my dear friend Hero, who moved
across the ocean and I miss terribly (see My Hero)

From my great buddy Juneau,
who believes that birthdays are serious business

From my friend Rita the Naked Pit Bull

It was threatening rain and there was thunder in the distance, but we were still able to get in a GREAT hike.  Tim takes me and my friend Nicky hiking every Wednesday while mom & dad are at work, and we always have fun, but today was EXTRA fun!  (Photos by Tim Kondas)

I love to hike!!

This is SO much FUN

When I got home, I was very tired.

But I perked up when mom gave me the bone that Tim bought for me at PetSmart.  (He even let me pick it out myself.)

Nom nom nom

Tim also got me a Pup-Pie,
which mom said we had to save for tomorrow

. . . but I convinced her that I should have a little piece

I am such a lucky pup to have so many kind and thoughtful friends.  

Thank you ALL (especially Tim) for making this the Best Birthday EVER!
