Today is my older dog's birthday (well, the date we've always celebrated, since we don't know the exact date). I'm trying not to think about the fact that she's already 9, though. Anyhow, on the dogs' birthdays we always get them each a present (a toy of some sort) and wrap them, and we take them to our local ice cream place and they each get a baby cone with vanilla frozen yogurt... this is a Big Deal to them, since we don't allow them any people food (besides, like, baby carrots) for the rest of the year. Then later today we'll take them either hiking or on a walk. Here's the birthday girl!
