Because it is!
I turned 8 today, which is cause for celebration! I'm a birthday-loving boy, and mama knows just how I like to be spoiled on my big day.
Cookies, of course. Some sort of special Birthday cookie is always in order. I like these from the Just Dogs Bakery here in Philadelphia. Picked this one our special myself.
Major walkies - of course. And because today wasn't humid or outrageously hot, the evening walkie was extra long so that I could visit all of the dog stores in my neighborhood and let everyone know that today is a holiday. And so that I could score free birthday treats.
Dinner must also be special. Mama cooks for me (I have my own crockpot and everything) so a chicken soup isn't anything out of the ordinary. But today I got a little something extra in my soup - chicken livers - which I gobble up even before the soup cools down. IT'S THAT GOOD. Served in a special Gmundner keramik Austrian plate because only dogs eat out of dog bowls.
I do feel special, and I do know how much my mama loves me. We are the BESTEST team! But really, thanks mama for the special cookies, chow, and walkies - you really know how to make a guy feel SPECIAL.
