A note from Miss Harper Lee’s Mommy . . .
Today my sweet Golden girl is celebrating her seventh birthday. She’s a St. Paddy’s Day pup, living in New Orleans’ Irish Channel neighborhood, and she’s seven wonderful years old. I’d say that’s all pretty lucky, wouldn’t you?
Where in the world have the years gone? It seems like just yesterday this tiny light-colored puppy was sitting by my side in the garden. I couldn’t possibly have asked for a better companion. I wish for at least seven more beautiful years, but I will take every single minute I can get.
So happy birthday to my sweet little Miss Harper Lee, and happy St. Patrick’s Day to her wonderful friends. You’re all a gift, and we are both so happy to “know” you!
Today is a big day, friends. Yes, it’s St. Patrick’s Day. Humans far and wide will be wearing all kinds of funny green outfits and drinking all kinds of funny green drinks. Humans will look for any excuse to cut loose, right?
It’s also my birthday. My sixth birthday. My humans and I have absolutely no idea where the time has gone. It seems like just yesterday that they drove out to the country to visit me for the first time . . . and I planted a huge kiss on my daddy’s face. That sealed the deal. My humans say that every single second they’ve spent with me has been pure joy, and I feel the same way. My face is getting a little grayer and I spend a little more time sleeping these days. Mommy says that just makes me even sweeter. Today we’ll join in the St. Patrick’s Day festivities, but we’ll also celebrate the last six years . . . special years . . . and we’ll hope that we’re lucky enough to enjoy many, many more.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the poll to determine how I would celebrate my St. Patrick’s Day birthday. Some of you voted early; I suspect that some of you might have voted often; and I have tallied the votes. Going out to dinner with my humans wins!
It was a very, very close vote. Only one vote separated each of the top three choices: Go out to dinner with my humans, go on a shopping spree for treats and toys, and invite friends to my home to celebrate. No one wanted me to spend a quiet evening at home with my humans. I knew I liked you!
So, even though my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, I am off to dinner with my humans this evening. Saturday is just a much better date night than Sunday, don’t you think? I cannot wait to tell you all about my celebration!
