I guess today’s blog will be about the kids. Today is Essie’s 10th birthday! I can’t believe that we have had this little bundle of awesomeness for 10 years now. Chris brought her home to me (or rather he stopped at my work with her) to replace me having to give up Lily Rose, another Pitty rescue. Lily had bad separation anxiety and was destroying the house while we were at work. There was nothing that helped. So I got a little 7 week old puppy that I named Esmerelda May. She has been with us ever since. Baby girl has been through a lot in those 10 years. She is one of the best dogs we’ve ever had.
Today we are also celebrating Moose’s birthday. He turns 8 years old. I rescued Moose locally before they put him down. He was only 9 months old. He has been my baby ever since. He is too damn smart too. There was the times he managed to open the sliding glass door and let himself and his siblings out. And when he opened the side door and let everyone out. Then there was the time he opened the oven…. you get the idea. But he is my baby. I can be gone for a few minutes and he is so butt wiggly happy when I get back.
Now we know today really is Essie’s birthday. But I counted back from when I got Moose and that would make his birthday in July (if they are right about his age, I say that because the people I got him from it was their roommate’s dog and he couldn’t bear to give him away and asked them to take him to me). So I decided that we would just celebrate both of them today. If I have Stella’s age right she can celebrate with me as she was born in August.
And speaking of Moose and Stella there is a local restaurant named after them! Chris and I stopped at one of our local places we might eat at every few months yesterday. It was a fun train themed tiny place with really good food. Imagine our surprise to find that the place as now called Moose and Stella’s and was now dog themed! The décor was all dog stuff: plaques with sayings about dogs, dog bowls, dog photos etc. When we got home I looked at my Moose and Stella and told them it was about time they picked up some of the bills since they have their own restaurant! The food was amazingly good (I had one of Moose’s burgers) and we will definitely be going back. I may need to see if I can get a tee shirt….
I will leave you with some photos of all three babies. I am very blessed to be able to call them mine. I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading and stay safe!
