It's Misty's Birthday!

Today my sweet, sweet Misty~girl turns 12. Hard to believe. From the day she came to live with us, I always thought of her as my "young dog".

I remember the way Misty pranced around the backyard on our initial meeting. I had to have her. It was a rough first couple days as she acclimated herself to her new home, and new sibling (Munchkin), but I don't think she even remembers her former owner anymore. Seems like Misty has always been mine. Our relationship was meant to be.

Misty is a complete treasure. My good girl, who gives me no trouble. Nothing but pure sweetness. Sugar.

Today's your day sweetie! I promise to ignore that black & white thing and give you all of my attention. You deserve it!

Here's to many more cuddles, kisses, arm pit scratches, long naps on the deck, belly rubs, neighbors to bark at, and deer scat to roll your face in.

Happy Birthday Misty. You sweet pretty girl. Great video you put together Sara. Oreo will help keep her young with all that running and play that he will soon be ready to do again. You can tell they love each other and are happy dogs.

Happy Birthday Misty girl! You are beautiful! And smart. And funny. And a great big sister.

Loved the picture of you at the front door, and the video clip of you knocking into Oreo as he came out of the tunnel, so YOU get the treat!

Great video your Mom made of you!

you will have to update her picture in the right side bar unless she is going to lie about her age.

How awesome! Our little Penny turns 12 this year too, kind of crazy how fast time goes!

Misty is so lucky to have such a devoted dog owner like you :) She seems like a really sweet girl. I like how you called Oreo the "black and white thing", it made me laugh. Hope Misty gets spoiled (more than usual) today!

You are either a very talented dog or your mommy a good trainer or both!!
