A Special Day

There are three things special about today.  The first thing is that we actually saw the sun today.  It was shining this morning, and then it clouded over a bit, and then we saw it on and off for the rest of the day.  I think the last time we had a really sunny day was 2 1/2 weeks ago when we went for a walk with Pippin, Jeff and Sue on the dyke.  That is a long 2 1/2 weeks of cloud and drizzle and rain, so it felt just wonderful today to see that sun.

The next thing is that today marks the one year anniversary of me starting this blog.  I'm proud of the fact that I've stuck with it and I really enjoy the bloggy friends I've met along the way. 

The best thing of all about this day is that it is Calli's eleventh birthday. 
Happy Birthday old girl:)
She still looks good, a little whiter on the face of course, but doing well all things considered.

My friend Carol who raises beef and sells it at farmers markets brought three large bones for the dogs when she stopped by a few weeks ago.  
I figured today was as good a day as any to give the bones to them.
Calli got the biggest one of course, just as a birthday girl should.

I think she enjoyed it!

Mmm, good. Thanks mum!

The dogs chewed on the bones for a couple of hours.  Calli's looked like this, a gross slimy mess,  but there wasn't too much left of Jake and Luna's smaller bones.  They all got popped back into the freezer and they'll be brought out another day.


  1. The sun hasn't been out over here, either. Just those annoying bright-enough-to-be-a-pain overcast days.

    My dogs love big beef bones, too.
    Happy Birthday Callie!

  4. Calli reminds me so much of my big yellow lab, Piper. He was such a wonderful, lovable dog. I'll always have a special place in my heart for labs because of him. Happy Birthday Calli. Congrats on your blogging anniversary too.
