One Decade Old

All is forgiven

Can you believe it? I forgot that Indy's 10th birthday was on Tuesday! And I even marked it on my calendar. Goes to show how much I need to step up the blueberries (my memory fruit).

I hightailed it to the treat store yesterday to buy an assortment of "I'm sorry" birthday goodies. As soon as I walked in the door, the tantalizing scent of cinnamon grabbed my attention. The place smelled better than Starbucks, and certainly made my mouth water.

But it was time to go to work. I picked up a birthday bone, a bag of assorted treats, dental chews, and a "power chewer" bone. Then I started looking at the toys.

Finally, I restrained myself. Surely this would be enough to make one little dog happy. I bundled up the purchases and headed for home.

Tail's end: Indy is delighted and all is forgiven.

And that's a good thing. Because next I plan to schedule Indy's much dreaded haircut. I need to find the schnauzer under all those teddy bear curls.

Food/treats = forgiveness for all!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Indy, master of the household (or perhaps co-master with Bogey). Enjoy your day at the doggie spa from which you will emerge more handsome than ever!

Pat, this is such a sweet post. But don't feel bad...I actually forgot until last night that my daughter's 23rd birthday is Tuesday! Luckily, she made it easy for me because the gifts she wanted could be purchased on amazon, and with extra shipping cost, I could arrange to have the packages in time for her birthday! Great picture of your darling Indy!
