Hello , it’s my birthday today and I just turned 7 which in human year’s would be 49 ! Phew ! But I am a canine so why would I count my years in human years , pray ! And what’s this obsession with age anyway ! I look and feel a spritely 7 ; though my bones may creak a bit and I do feel a bit lethargic and tend to sleep a lot , more than before and, maybe, I am not as agile as before particularly when treats are flung in the air ( note from Bella’s writer : Bella is getting on in years but is in denial like many of us ! ) but I feel 7 at heart and that’s what I am going to be !
I hope there is going to be a party planned for moi like before and Toby and Apollo will be over to share my treats and play with me ( I am generous that way ) and we will have a merry time and forget that my golden hair is not as gold as before , my face is turning white ( note from ghost writer : happens with golden retrievers as they get on in years ) and , well , all the things that happen to humans at 49 !
But what the beeswax , life is good and I hope to enjoy it to the fullest while the going is good . Here are some photos from my previous shindigs .
