A Poppy-ful Birthday Hike

Hi Everybuddy!

Yesterday was my 8th birthday!  Can you believe that I am 8 years old now?  People always think I'm still a puppy.  The other day at the pet food store, the treat lady asked how old I was.  Whey Mommy said, "almost eight," the nice treat lady said, "months?"  Mommy laughed and said, "no, years!"  The treat lady was very surprised to know that I am a...ahem...senior dog now.  Mommy and Daddy said they can hardly believe it themselves sometimes.

To celebrate my big day, we went for a little walk in a beautiful place with lots and lots of POPPIES!  They are Mommy's favorite flower, which is why I am named after them.  There were tons of them right at the entrance gate to the park:

Once we started walking, Mommy saw some more spots of orange on top of a hill and said we had to go up there.  So we did.  It was so warm and sunny and I was panting and panting, but I was a very good hiker and walked to the top.  (It really wasn't very far because Mommy's knee is a little bit injured right now.)

When we got to the top, sure enough, there were lots more poppies up there!  And a great view, too!

I am smiling my best smile in this picture because it was such a wonderful day and I am so happy that I have gotten to live eight of the bestest years anyone has ever lived!

Bye for now,
Poppy the Little Blonde 8-Year-Old Chihuahua

Happy Birthday Poppy! I'm gonna be 7 this year (I think). My mom has problems remembering things like birthdays and ages (I think because she doesn't want to remember HERS!) I love the smiling sunny picture of you!
