Today is our sweet angel dog Spike’s 13th birthday. Well, for those of you know our crazy hounds, Snoopy, the purebred Beagle, is usually the one who gets a bad rap for barking uncontrollably and the occasional pee on my favorite skin rug, but Spike wasn’t always the angelic one. One mattress, two couch pillows and a few pairs of shoes later, luckily, Spike eventually grew out of his naughty digging & chewing phase. Now he just burrows under the covers with us peacefully!
I can’t believe how time flies. It seems like just yesterday we adopted our furry baby. Wow, in dog years that makes him 91 years young today! I feel bad because we didn’t bake him a special cake like we did last year, as it was such a crazy weekend. Maybe we will do a double dog party in August for Spike & Snoopy while we are on vacation. So to make up for it, I gave him a few banana slices in his breakfast and maybe I will spoil him with a petite filet tonight!
He may be 91 in dog years, but he still likes a good run on the beach, he plays guard dog pretty well (except when he barks at the nice children walking by) and I can count on one hand the night’s he hasn’t slept with me. Happy Birthday to the “Chiquest” most loyal, loving pup in the whole world. We love you Spikey!
