Katie's Monsoon Birthday

by Katie the Newf...

My third birthday has been an extremely wet one (5-7 inches of rain tonight alone), but I've still managed to have some fun. I got an awesome goodie box from my cousin Remy in LA which was great fun to unwrap and sample. Also, with the help of Louie I rearranged the living room furniture and we played with about 10 different toys tonight in quite a rowdy fashion. Since it's too wet for my usual birthday walk in the park, I'm going to take a trip down memory lane instead.

When I was six weeks old my Mama held me for the first time. I picked my Mama out all by myself. When she came to visit me and my litter mates I told her that she was the Mama for me and she agreed.

Then when I was eight weeks old my Daddy came to visit me and I realized I was a lucky pup to be getting such a sweet Dad.

My elderly sister Scarlett was 13 when I came home. At first I thought it was great fun to pester her, but eventually I learned that she didn't like that. We became good friends after a few months when I settled down a bit.

Even as a fuzzy puppy I loved to be groomed.

Before Louie came along to keep me company I used to go to Bonnie and Bill's house to play with my litter mate Rose. Those were fun times.

I've always been a spiritual Newf doing lots of yoga and meditation. No joke about the meditation. Seriously, I know what the word means when Mama says it. When she goes to her meditation spot I go with her and I am perfectly quiet until she is done.

I love to spend time in my backyard playing with my toys.

Last spring we watched the Little Rock Marathon. We lifted the spirits of many runners.

I love being a therapy dog. Here is a picture of me on a recent visit to Easter Seals resting between play sessions with the kids there.

This is what a three year old Monsoon Birthday Newf looks like. Mama keeps drying us, but we just keep getting wet again.

I let my 1 year old sidekick be in the photo 'cause unlike some Newfies we know (cough...cough...Louie) I don't always have to be the center of attention.

Part of our play session tonight. See how clever I am... I got under the coffee table, so my brother couldn't jump on my back.

Thanks for sharing my birthday with me. I hope you all are somewhere warm and cozy surrounded by the humans and animals you love.
