Happy Fifth Birthday, Dalton!


Yesterday was Dalton’s Birthday…he became 5! Today is unfurbro-the-younger’s birthday! Next week is petcretary’s Niece’s birthday…August is busy!

But we are just going to focus on Dalton today, cause it is HIS special time:)

He got a new stuffie…complete with a rope and a squeaker…a bag of calming treats…(yeah, *she* gave that as a present…phooey!), a box of chewy sticks, yes he loves those, and a Birthday ‘Pie’…and he wasn’t too eager to have at it…sheesh, he is strange…though he did eat up a piece after the camera was gone…but *she* fooled him and got a pic with him eating it:) 

(I, Dalton, let Benji share a piece too, but even he did not want it…at all! Though during the night he had an upset tummy and woofed his cookies all over the carpet, maybe he just wasn’t interested in treats…he didn’t eat breakfast either…sigh..he seems OK otherwise, and likely will gobble up his supper…he diid, phew!!)

Dalton has been with us almost 4 years, now, but the only real changes are his weight…increased to make him look like a little footstool sometimes…so he is going to try to shed some of that…he still hates Pawppy, and tries to bite his legs when its time for him to go to his work…Petcretary thinks he gets braver when the ‘culprit’ is leaving and not facing him…his hackles are often raised when he does that…the baggage load he still carries is so heavy he cannot seem to trust his own daddy yet, even though Daddy serves the food and the treats. He hasn’t been able to learn new tricks easily, though with much repetition he has learned to catch a treat if it gets tossed for him. He only plays with toys if Benji initiates a tug of war game…but they do get along very well, and play lots of the famous ‘Bitey Face’ games.

Oh well, he seems happy enough, so we’ll just let him be here on his own terms; and focus on his good traits, to bolster his confidence and demeanor, as even with me, petcretary, he cowers, though not aggressively. Hopefully one day he might decide that his pawppy is NOT a threat. Poor dude, we just cannot imagine the abuse he must have suffered at the hands of a man…he does fine with ladies.

The weather is nice enough, just WAY too hot and humid, we both are spending a lot of time just lounging inside where its nice and cool with AC. 

You know what??  They locked us both in the house at about 5pm…and didn’t come back till after 9 pm…sheesh. Something about having dinner with the other birthday boy…but they did not bring me or Benji anything in one of those doggy bags. Us two just got our regular meal and treats. Oh well, at least we got that, BOL!!

Its a big full moon tonight! Wow, it is a so called blue moon, but it was orange! Very orange, must be the atmosphere is all quite polluted with the smoke from all those nasty forest fires out west. *She* forgot to make a picture of it, maybe tomorrow…

This week, petcretary was not a first commenter at Teddy’s place, but she did have the right answer, though she wasn’t first with that either, LOL!! See furends, she is normal!!
