Eek, I haven't posted in a while, but you have to forgive me because guess what!

Today is my birthday!!! I am three years old today!!!

At least that's what they tell me. We don't really know my birthday exactly because I'm adopted. But Mommy and Daddy think I was born around April 1st. I guess they want me to be an "April Fool."

In honor of my birthday we went hiking on Sunday. It was super fun! We went to a beautiful county park that has lots of trees and green stuff and waterfalls. They brought my pouch because they weren't sure how much hiking I would actually be able to do, but I ended up walking a whole bunch. I am slowly but surely getting back to my trail-dog self!

Look at me walking up the trail in my new green jacket:

When we got home I was the tiredest I have ever been, I think. I slept on Mommy's lap for a while, and when she got up to go to the bathroom, she put me in my living room bed and covered me with my yellow blankie. When she sat down again I was so tired that I DIDN'T EVEN GET UP TO GO SIT ON HER LAP! I just kept sleeping under my blankie.

Since today is my actual birthday, I have been promised a basket-ride this afternoon. And tonight after Daddy gets home I get to open my present. I can't wait! Being three is awesome!

Bye for now,
Poppy the Birthday Dog

Happy Birthday, 3-year-old Poppy! Your picture with your green shirt on is soooo cute! It looks like you had a very fun birthday, and I'm so glad that you are getting stronger every day.

Happy Birthday, Poppy! You are walking great. And I think your cute little green jacket is very fashionable.

You made me a little nervous when you walked so close to the edge there!
