Happy Birthday to Me!

Hello! I am so sorry I have been so to blog lately. My foster mom has been doing some traveling for both business and pleasure so she has not been around too much to help me. I never remember the password to the website and my paws do not lend themselves to accurate keyboarding. But look, here I am tonight! Woo hoo!

On September 30th, we celebrated Brady’s birthday. Buddy and I got a few nibbles of his ice cream cake which was absolutely delicious. Thank you Dairy Queen! Brady made a wish before blowing out his candles and then opened his presents. Unfortunately, he did not get the Dodge Charger, Porsche Cayenne or Ferrari he wanted, but he did get gas money which means more rides in the car for me.

Happy Birthday, Brady!

Guess who celebrated their birthday next? I will give you a hint. It was on Friday, October 5th. This sweet, charming individual has velvety soft brown ears, beautiful white and brown fur and a cast on her front right leg. Did you guess it yet? It was me!  I celebrated my 3rd birthday with my family. It was so much fun!

My family surprised me with a pupcake and presents!

Now it was my turn to make a wish before blowing out the candles. I closed my eyes, made a wish and quickly ran away. I was definitely sensing danger around that fire so mom blew out the candles for me.

Once the fire was out, I dove right into my birthday cake.

As I was devouring some of the cake, mom took it away and put it on the table. She didn’t want me to get sick and it was time for presents! I got so much! Toys, cookies and marrow bones with peanut butter. Yummy! I wanted everything at once!

There was so much going on and every moment was fabulous. Once the evening started winding down I was getting tired. I took my toys and jumped up onto my favorite spot on the couch. I was playing with my toys, eyes closed and thinking about my birthday wish.

As I was resting my eyes, I heard my family talking about Uncle David. I never met Uncle David, but I heard them say he passed away on May 17th. Uncle David sounded like a really cool guy and her loved animals. He had horses, goats, chickens and fish. All of Uncle David’s animals loved him as much as he loved them. Building barns was his passion and each barn he crafted was built to keep every animal safe and provide them their very own home. The morning Uncle David died, my foster mom, dad and sister went down to the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk to make a donation in his name by purchasing a brick paver with a special note about him: In loving memory of Uncle David, love your pet friends and Calley xo.  Today, October 5th was not only my birthday, it was Uncle David’s, too. I started to think that maybe he brought us all together…

Happy birthday to me, Uncle David and all of you born on October 5th. May all your birthday wishes come true, I can’t tell you my wish but I bet you can guess…

Now that I am 3 years old, I know I am going to find my new family soon!
