Darwin received her first first birthday present yesterday from her blogging buddy Remi!!! He's such a sweet guy!
I brought the gift home and set it on the counter and headed to the bedroom to change clothes for our walk*. As I was in the bedroom I could hear her in the living room whining and whining and crying... she saw the gift on the counter and knew it was something for her. Remi must have sent kisses on the contents of the present because she was a complete nut job wanting to get at it! I convinced her that she could open her present after our walk, but we had to leave the house. Finally she agreed and we went out for a good hour long walk.
As soon as we got home, she had some water and was ready for her gift.
I made her sit for it, and the let her at it. I had taken a peek in the bag and knew the contents beforehand, and so I thought she was going to go straight for the goodies inside. NOPE. Ms. Paper shredder had to enjoy the whole process of opening her gift which included shredding the bag and the tissue first.
In fact when the treat fell out of the bag, she didn't even notice because she was so into the bag and tissue paper.
She finally saw the pink stuffless flamingo and heard it squeak and that's all she wanted.
Then she noticed the treat and that's all she wanted.
She kept herself occupied for two hours devouring her new treat!
Thank you Remi for helping Dar celebrate her first birthday!!! She loved the treat and LOVES the pink flamingo!
This weekend should be tons of fun. Sunday we have a birthday party/reunion planned and so far about 7-8 of her siblings are going to meet up at Marymoor park and their doggy parents too! It's going to be complete chaos of blue danes and friends! Can't wait!
If any doggy blog friends in the area can make it, we'll be at meeting at Marymoor around 10am! Can't wait!
*Darwin finally in the last month or so has been less of a scaredy cat and willing to go on walks! Real walks further than a two block radius! We're so proud.
