pickles is turning ONE tomorrow!  happy birthday pickles!  what better way to end goodbear’s party season. that’s right, one last party…tonight.

as i approached the cashier with 4 bottles of wine, 2 cases of beer, one grolsch, paper plates and 2 packs of AA batteries, he says to me, “here comes the party.”

to which i ALMOST replied, “my dog is turning one this weekend.”

walking to the car i thought, “this IS sort of silly.” but then i smiled with the thought that i know so many great people that want to have fun and love my dogs.

and then i started wondering why the hell i’m trying so hard to be such a hostess lately.  who knows, but we’re having a good time.

anyway, back to the point of this post.  pickles is turning 1.  many friends have asked, “what does pickles want for her birthday?”  the real question is “what does pickles need?” nothing.  the dogs still have unopened christmas presents.

when cody bear turned one he asked everyone he knew to make a donation to the shelter he was adopted from.  pickles is doing the same.  the two are quite competetive: she hopes to raise more than he did, he is confident she won’t because she isn’t as …fluffy as he is.  siblings!

so, if you’re interested here is a link to the rescue group pickles came from.  but please let me know in a comment if you donated, as there isn’t a memo line and i…oops, SHE….would like to send a thank you.


i’m so thankful to have such a wonderful little girl.  she has made me and cody bear very happy.

here is the link if you’re interested:
