Happy Birthday Ginger!

Ginger turned another year older on Thursday.....and she is starting to show her age....not just in the gray hairs either.

She doesn't jump up on the beds to sleep with the kids anymore.
She doesn't run with Dean anymore.
If I throw the ball, her arthritis flares up so badly that she limps for at least 2 days....so I don't throw the ball for her anymore. (well, not much....)
But don't feel too sorry for her, just see how happy she is!!!


besides, that tail of hers can still clear a coffee table in 2 seconds flat and those eyes can still melt your heart...and she still loves to chase bubbles!
There she goes..the bubble is in the bottom right corner.


Thursday when the kids got home, we piled into the car and took her to the pet store. We do this for her birthday every year and she really enjoys it.

Once at the store, she happily walked up and down the aisles...TWICE...looking for the treat she ALWAYS picks....no luck....they had MOVED THEM to the top shelf!

not there....
leaving a trail of destruction in her path....(yes, we picked it up!)

not there either....
nope.....dang, where are they?



THERE they are! Those yucky yummy gooey dogs bones covered in goop.

See? The nose knows!

after sharing with Mojo...


...she settled down to enjoy her birthday treat.


Happy Birthday Ginger!

Happy Birthday Ginger girl! ... and many, many mooore! I know, just because we slow down, doesn't mean we aren't playing along anymore...I'm slower now than I was as a kid, but even more appreciative of the life that I have.

Ginger, how fun to pick out your birthday present at the pet shop! I like to take Gizzy to PetsMart too, but he's little and rides in the cart ;-)

That was a lovely post. I enjoyed your outing at the pet shop. Love that bubble chasing photo and the one in the car - heck, all of them are fantastic, just like you, Ginger girl~!

Again, many happy returns from
Gizzy and his mommy Doris :-)
