Thank you for your thoughts-I appreciate them

I can’t get mad at Kaci for letting my age and birthday be public. She’s a good (if immature) soul and I’m starting to mellow about the subject.  One of His ancestors was born before the Wright brothers flew their airplane at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. She was defensive about her age until she was 90 and then she was proud of her achievement. She finally crossed at age 102. Well, I’m going to make it to 102 (or beyond) so I’m not that sensitive.

Yes, it was my 12th birthday. We did it right. A tradition is a birthday for one is a birthday for all (dog years and all that).  Everyone got a new toy.


Since it was MY birthday, I got a moment to myself-and it involved FOOD! I got a bone which I don’t get often and the others were locked out

Even nature cooperated. I’ve been telling you about our monsoons and the lightening. This evening we had a minor show-some lightening, no thunder, no rain but a whole lot of entertainment. Just stick the camera up and do it-if you pan 360, you’ll miss something from where you just left.

  1. That was the bestest firework ever, fabulous colors and no loud noises! Your bone looks tasty…do you need help to eat it… I mean if you have alone to work on that thingy? the lightning at 0:22 looked like the shape of Lord Voldemort lol

  2. Yummy and so glad you got to enjoy your bone. Wow that was some lightning. Have a serene Sunday and get in some big easy today.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. I’m glad you had a great birthday. Yes indeed.

    I loved the video of the lightening too. That was cool.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your human. ♥♥♥

  4. The heavens put on a show for your birthday. See even heaven knows how special you are. You all got Kong toys WOW.
    Sweet William The Scot

  5. wow that’s incredible!

  6. Sid did not even react. This is nothing compared to Florida. We loved your presents and hope that you got to enjoy them.

    • Sid didn’t react because there was no thunder with this display. A perfect light show for him. Around midnight another storm came through that had thunder and Kali had to leave her crate and come on the bed-she was fine then. Kaci and I are old hands at this.

  7. What a nice Celebration you had and everyone got a new special toy because of you.
    Nice touch to celebrate with your family. I bet that bones did not last very long.
    You are one special girl and still young.

  8. YOUR OWN BONE! That’s fantastic. We had thunder with our lightning…..and rain. Think we like AZ better.

    • I got my own bone and was locked in the bedroom until I finished it. Although the others share in the gifts, the birthday girl gets her own bone by herself.

  9. Happy belated birthday Kyla.

    Aroo to you,

  10. Dog gone it! we missed it! Happy belated birthday Kyla, your bone looked quite tasty and what a lovely birthday tradition – toys for all! I wonder if I could convince mum that I am in need of new toy in honor of your 12th year…hmm…

    Edgar and his mum

  11. Happy Birthday Kyla! I am so glad you got to enjoy your toys and treats!

  12. Happy Birthday Kyla (you beautiful old broad)! I love dat everyone got a new toy. Enjoy your bone and bury it where no-one will find it.

  13. Do you end up giving the toys goofy names? We have Inky the Octopus, Hedgie the hedgehog, Squeaky the Squirrel and on and on. Sometimes I think if a non-dog person ever overheard us talking to Max about his toys they would call a 5150 into the cops so we could be placed in a rubber room.

  14. OMD we missed your birthday!!! Happy belated 12th birthday Kyla! We are sorry we missed it, but we can tell you had a great day. And a bone all to yourself! Ya can’t beat that for a birthday surprise.

    Braeden and Seth

  15. We can’t believe we missed your birthday! Butt better late than never. We hope you enjoyed your bone and didn’t drive your sister’s crazy with your bone breath afterwards.
    We get pretty spectacular electric storms here in Johannesburg during summer time too – luckily we’re not afraid of all the noise and flashing.
    BIG licks Kyla dear,
    Wally & Sammy

  16. Pablo sent you a little something… consider it a birthday present!

  17. toys without arms…. what is there to tear off… tell the humans toys need arms… jeez can’t they even get that right? Glad you enjoyed the bone though 😛

  18. So sorry we missed the great day! Looks like you enjoyed yourself. And to top it all a fantastic light display – much better than man-made fireworks. Here’s to the next 12 years for the pair of us.

  19. How cool! No one to have to keep that bone away from! What a fun day!
    Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy

  20. Kyla – I can’t believe we missed your birthday. Happy belated birthday to you, sweetie! Hope you had a wonderful day. I bet you enjoyed that bone! Much love, The Scottie Mom.
