MABEL'S BIRTHDAY!!!

I took her for a super long hike... can't imagine what else she could possibly like. Her toybox is overflowing and except for tennis balls, she rarely plays with any of her toys. She also got to go to In-n-Out Burger and got two meet patties instead of her usual one.

It's hard to believe it's been five years! It feels like she's still a baby dog.

Of course, I'm not certain of her "real" birthday but just like with all my other adoptees, I pick a date near the time the vet thinks she was born. My vet was certain it was late February.

Has anyone ever noticed that important people in your lives tend to have similar birthdays? That has happened to me time and time again. And so, I picked Feb. 23 for Mabel.

It's also the birthday of one of my childhood friend's as well my dearest production buddy's special day. So in addition to Mabel Lou, Happy Birthday to Theresa and Jim, wherever you both may be. I pray that life is being good to you both.

Mabel is still not sure if we are coming or going with my work schedule. She still wakes me up to pet her around 4. And she got so used to going to the creek at the crack of dawn and seems very out of sorts now that we are on my "let's go whenever I feel like it" schedule.

I decided to air out the jeep the other day as it mostly smells like that famous California perfume "eau de wet doggie." So I opened the rear door and sprayed Oust and just left it while I worked in the shop. Mabel, not wanting to miss her ride, got in and waited...

Happy Birthday Baby Girl... and many, many more!

Happy Birthday, Mabel! Thanks for sharing these delightful photos, Holly. I especially like the one of her sitting all gangly-legged in the Jeep.

Velvet, That's my personal favorite. She sits like that for hours waiting for me to finish in the shop. She's ridden in the car that way since she got too big to straddle the console.

Happy Birthday to your Mabel! I love the picture of her ready for a ride - she looks so patient. You wouldn't happen to be spoiling her, would you? :-)

CreekHiker said...

Jackie, She CAME here spoiled... it's not my fault really!

My mom accuses me of that all the time and I just remind her that SHE is the one to give Mabel every bit of table food.

Ah, Mabel is a brat but I love her...
