The BiRtHdAy Girl!

Thank-you all for your kind and supportive comments on my last post.  Your encouragement has helped more than you know! We ended our week on a positive note, with a birthday.
Because many of our dogs have come from shelters, or an owner who simply didn't know, the birth date of most of our dogs is unknown. Of course I know when Todd's is, and we are lucky in that we also know Annie's--Her birthday was yesterday.  She reached a milestone by turning 14 years old!

Annie may be 14, but she still has a lot of spark and spunk! Goldens are known for being a quiet breed, but Annie isn't and she always lets me know by barking (and barking and barking) when she wants something, or if I'm not moving fast enough for her.  
The life expectancy of a Golden is 12-14 years. We know that each day with Annie is a gift, and just as we've been doing, we intend to treat the ones we have with her that way.  Enjoy your Saturday!

  12. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DEAR ANNIE! You sure look great in that little hat and I know you must have had a wonderful day!
    I also read the previous post and how true it is that life sometimes looks just like Charlie! He is absolutely adorable, but a bit messy.

  39. Hi Kim,

    I saw your comment on John's blog about losing a follower so I thought I'd come over and add one! Love your dogs. Your Charlie (the Wheaten terrier I think) looks like a blonde, even furrier version of my dog Snippet.

    Happy birthday to Annie.

    Best wishes,

    Em
