Today is Zsofia's fourth birthday; she is a Yankee Doodle Baby. We are blessed to actually have baby pictures.
Our All-American Girl and White Dog planned a star-spangled birthday menu of grilled chicken and veggie kabobs, over a bed of kibble drizzled with coconut milk and topped with blueberries and strawberries. Of course, dessert was apple pie and a spoon of vanilla ice cream (with a dusting a tiny training peanut butter star treats).
Sachi helped Zso work off calories with a strenuous wrestling match. He claims to have even let her win because it was "her" day. They have had a special bond since her very first days.
As darkness fell, we drew the blinds and settled in for a marathon viewing of Mozart In the Jungle, louder than usual. Each pup was comfortable, settled in the bedroom with us and munching on a special Zso birthday treat...round steak bones. The distraction kept fear at bay as the neighborhood celebrated...in a different, louder fashion.
Happy Birthday, Darkest White Dog! We hope you know that you are loved and that we are all so very proud of the person you are.
