Birthday Boy

Wow, Mikey is three years old today! Hard to believe, as it seems like it was just a few months ago I brought a tiny little blue fellow, just bursting with joie de vivre, into my home and into my heart.

So, what did Mikey get to do for his birthday? After work we went out to the bayou, even though it was misting pretty heavily, and I played ball with him for a while (Mikey said, 'Oh boy! My Favorite!') and then he had a dinner, including a little bit of left over brisket (Mikey said, 'Oh boy! My Favorite!') and after I had my dinner, I shoved the dining table to the side of the room and set up some old weave poles and we practiced weaves (Holly too) (Mikey said, 'Oh boy! My Favorite!') and then Mikey and Holly got a new toy each (see below) and we played with those for a while and then I got 'pink ball' and threw it down the hallway for a while (and Mikey said, you guessed it, 'Oh boy! My Favorite!'). Altogether, I think Mikey had a five star evening.

I truly have never known a dog that is so consistently thrilled with life! Every morning is Christmas morning for Mikey and everything he does he does with as much excitement as if it was the first time. I'm so glad that I am sharing my life with him.

Holly and Mikey say 'Hi' and Mikey says, 'My Birthday! Oh boy! My Favorite!!!'

And here's a couple of my favorite pictures of baby Mikey.
