Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 19th day of January, 2019.

Another cooler day on the way or actually here.

TODAY is a very special day as it marks the 10th Birthday of our beloved Alvin.

Alvin Charlie Lewis.

 

He came into our lives on a bitterly cold night nine year ago and it is almost fitting that we should celebrate his tenth birthday on another cold winter’s day.

I cannot believe he is ten already and that nine years have passed since he came to join our family and to live with me.

We had a somewhat rocky beginning as he was not in a good place health wise when he came to my home.

That passed and after about a month or so, we settled into a routine and have had a great life since.

Of course there have been moments for both of us but we get through those times together.

He has been a faithful and loyal companion, although he does love the girls (giggling aloud).

We seem to like the same things such as food, walks and did I say food.

You can always see that by our waistlines.

We are both stubborn and loyal and loving.

He is such a social “butterfly” and loves being around everyone.

As of late, he is becoming more friendly with Humphrey the cat who lives next door.

Which has been great.

His best friend “Teddy” will be here shortly.

His parents are going to the farm for the day so it just happened to fall on Alvin’s birthday.

Perfect timing.

I had decided to have a birthday party for Mr. Alvin and then asked if Teddy could sleepover.

Because everyone should have a sleepover for their birthday.

Tomorrow is his birthday party.

My daughter, his sister and family will join us.

So Alvin will have his best friend Teddy, sister, brother-in-law, niece Miss Aspen and nephew Baby Milo attending his party.

We picked up a dog friendly cake last night along with some treatsĀ  & toys to make up goodie bags for the guests.

Also there had to be cake for the humans attending the party.

Why not, I said.

Why not?

Teddy will be here shortly.

Happy Birthday to my buddy ….. Happy Birthday Mr. Alvin.

Thank you for coming into our lives and making them so much better.

We love you.
