Harri and Kobe have been counting down to today, because it's Milly's birthday. We got her when she was just over five months old, so her birthday has come around really fast. Kobe can't get his head around human years versus dog years. Harri keeps rubbing it into him that Milly is actually older than he is now, but Kobe keeps asking me if Milly is still one, and when I say she is he is relieved, as he wants to be the older one.
I still can't believe that we actually have a dog, but am glad that we got her. She drives me crazy at times, but it's so lovely to see the boys with her and to have company.
Kobe kept saying that we had to get her a present, have a cake and sing her happy birthday. He was so excited that it was her birthday and this morning when he first saw her he was all over her saying 'happy birthday Milly!'. Then all day he kept saying that it looked like she had grown.
We decided to go and do something that Milly would love, so we went for a drive to a beach which isn't far away so we could throw the ball to her and she could play in the water.
The last time we were at the beach we had to drag Milly in the water, and she wasn't at all keen to be in there. This time she went in willingly and had lots of fun playing in the water with the boys. I'm not sure if it's because there are no waves at this beach, or if she's just used to it, but it was nice seeing her have so much fun.
On your birthday you are allowed to jump up at the tea table and you won't get in trouble. She thought it was great :)
It's so nice to hear the boys say how much they love her. Jalen still tells me all the time, how much she has helped him. I joked that for her birthday we were going to take her back to her family, but the boys didn't think that was a good idea. I guess we are keeping her then :)
