I actually got my birthday gift a few days before my birthday. I got the Slo-Bowl flower because I tend to eat too fast. Lady was gonna make me wait til my birthday but one night I ate so fast I vomited and then ate my vomit, which grossed my Lady out and she gave me it early. I have been testing it out, and it does make me eat slower. I find it slightly annoying, but am adjusting to the change.

My Aunt C, Uncle D and cousin cats Panda and Lupul sent me this in an email:
"For your birthday a Thundershirt has been donated to one of the dogs at the Catahoula rescue so that a dog like you can get a hug when it needs it while it waits for it's forever home!!!"
Catahoula is the rescue that saved me (and Phod too), so I am happy to be helping other dogs who don't have forever homes.
On my birthday my Lady took me for a special walk through the woods behind our house. We didn't go very far because even though we are having a January thaw, Lady still sinks up to above her knees when she was walking . . . which made it hard for her. I was light enough to not to sink as much as Lady and Phod. I managed to pull Lady over 4 times in the snow. Fortunately when the snow was up past her knees she didn't have far to fall so she didn't get hurt and she laughed a lot. What was neat about our walk is that in our side yard we can see where the deer have been sleeping. We got to have a really good sniff of the deer dents in the snow. It was fun. Phody and I both enjoyed the deer poop as a treat. [Note from Lady - Phod never eats poop etc, so it was shocking that he wanted deer poop!]
Even though we didn't go far, having to pull Lady through the snow was hard work and I had a great nap after. I also got lots of extra treats. Overall, turning 4 was great. The only downfall to it, is Lady keeps saying I am all grown up now and I need to be good . . . . I just give her a look! I am gonna be who I am gonna be!
Thanks again for all your birthday wishes!
