Today's a special day,
A special day for Hailey,
so Hailey bark and Hailey sing,
A birthday is a special thing,
Happy Birthday Hailey!
Today we celebrate our sweet girl's 9th birthday. She is now the oldest dog we have ever had. Our other angels were taken too early. At 9, she is showing no signs of slowing down. I keep joking that she will be 22 before she calms down.
While I prefer to do her official birthday portrait outside (the contrast of my beautiful black dog against the white snow is one of my favourites), however, given the deep freeze we are in (-30C/-22F), that would be punishing my birthday girl. She is barely tolerating going out long enough to do her business. So instead we took some pictures in the house.
We will celebrate by singing at her too much, and giving her lots of extra treats.
Happy birthday to our love!
