Ella is 6!

Today is Ella's birthday!

Photobucket
Yup! It is!

Photobucket

Today Ella is 6 years old!
Or 42 in dog years!

To celebrate her big day she got

Photobucket

a new collar and a new ball!
Spoiled pup.

Ella hasn't had a new collar in two years (that's a world record for her; she ruins the usual collar within weeks, thank goodness I discovered Dublin Dog collars) and though she didn't really need a new one, I got her one anyway, because hey, it's her birthday!

The new collar.

She also got some tasty dog cookies from our local pet store/bakery.
Because no birthday is complete without cookies!

Photobucket
Cookie time!


Today is also Thankful Thursday.
How great is that?
Today, on Ella's birthday (and everyday, but today especially), we are thankful for Ella.
We're grateful she's so strong and healthy.
We're grateful for her kisses and snuggles.
We're grateful for her silly, wiggly dances, even if it does hurt like the dickens when you stand too close to her tail.
Yes, I did just say "hurt like the dickens"
Anyway.
We're grateful for her hilarious "roo roo roooo"s and the way she'll shimmy down a dirt hill on her back.
We're grateful for her entire sweet self.
Especially her extremely soft ears.
:)

Happy Birthday, Ella!

Whoa! Really? Sailor is 5?! What?! That's crazy. He's so much like Petal that I always want to say he's her age, but I know that's definitely wrong. :P
Thaaank you, Carlyyy! :D
