Mischief Monday - Not My Favourite Birthday - by Lee

Dear pals,

First let me thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes. They mean a lot to this pup and her peeps.

I am sad to report I did not have the best birthday. I got lots of treat and love, but some things I did not like happened.

First, Lady sang at me all day. Lady has many talents, singing is not one of them. Also, she will sing when I was trying to sleep. 

Then when she was done work for the day, she thought she would put me in a jacket (in which she called me a chunky monkey) and take me snowshoeing as another at least 20cm/7inches came Thursday/Friday.

She laughed at my rage and laughed even harder when after the first step in the very deep snow I turned around and refused to go. She just took Phod who will tell you all about it on Friday. 

Then Lady and Man went out for dinner and to the Costco, so my dinner was late. It does not matter they brought back new treats, it was late.

Now you may be saying, well maybe they were planning the big celebration on the weekend. Nope. Saturday Man was in a pickleball tournament all day, and Lady went to play at another spot (a tournament, even if just for fun is too much pressure for her). Then she did horrible things like vacuum. Sunday, they were off pickleballing for hours again too. 

So turning 13 has not been everything I hoped it would be. 

I hope these teen years improve.

  1. late food is da worst... maybe your peeps can do a birthday remake soon?

  2. Hari OM
    OMD Lee-gal... and there was I thinking Lad and Man knew exactly how to treat a mature gal-dog like yourself, which should only have been with kid gloves and endless love. ... no, wait. being fair to them, I do think that last part still applies... jus' sayin'... Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  3. You look beautiful in your pink jacket, Hailey and a birthday do-over has to be in your near future!

  4. Lee my word were treated with disrespect on your 13th and laughed at and endured a day long serenade by Lady who is tone deaf. Oh girlfriend do you need help planning your revenge?!
    Hugs cecilia

  5. We think the Lady and Man need to get their priorities straight and spoil you like you should have been on your birthday, Hailey. You don't look too happy in that pink jacket.

  6. 13 is a tough age for humans, so maybe it is for canines also. hang in there, things should settle down soon. I would say no to walking in the snow, not sure what Beau would do.

  7. We bet the Lady ad the Man make it all up to you soon, Hailey. That is a pretty coat, but we don't think we would like to wear it either. When Angel Phantom was old and skinny, he had a beautiful blue coat. At first he didn't like it, but he figured out that it really did help keep his old bones warm.

  8. Hailey, I’m sorry your birthday wasn’t all you wanted it to be. Your humans really need to do better. ~Ernie

  9. I am sorry your birthday was not better buy your parents have a whole year to make up for it.
