Birthdays and Bolsters

We have a lot of birthdays to celebrate this month.
Some time this month, Shiloh turns 13. Being that she is a mutt from the SPCA (nowadays she would be worth a lot of money and sold as a "Laussie or a Ausador"), I only know she was approximately 9 months old when I adopted her in May of 1998. So her birthday is sometime in August. Regardless of the day..she is an old lady. Of all my senior dogs, she shows her age the most. she is on permanent prescriptions and special diet..but she is my best friend and my heart dog. Happy 13th birthday, Shiloh!On August 13th, Dante turned 12. He will outlive us all and go out giving everyone the bird. He is still going strong and his only sign of age is the fact that he has turned into a 'dapple' dachshund instead of a black and tan. On August 18th, Henry will turn 11 years old. We have only had him one year, but it feels like he has been here forever. He is a great boy who has brought a lot to our household. We are very lucky to have been able to adopt him last year. Happy birthday, buddy!!
For their birthdays, I went to Three dog Bakery and bought everyone a special treat. i couldn't resist these! Don't worry, there are 6 of them so they don't have to share one!I have a new foster for a week or so. Her name is Still Jacey and she was returned for just not fitting in her previous household. She is really doing well and is VERY pretty!
we found a Bolster bed at Costco this time. Kristen has one and my dogs always love it, so we had to get one. Obviously we should have gotten more than one! Everyone had their turn in it this weekend!
Dana loves it most, which surprised the hell out of us!Of course, Cali had her time in it as well.Jacey definitely enjoyed it a lot.We watching Beau and Belle for the day..and they both managed to have a turn!
Jason's birthday is also this month. Not sure if we are doing anything 'blog worthy' but we shall see.

Dante kills me. He is so funny. He can give me the bird any day!

Oh - if you had bought 6 bolster beds they would all argue over the same one. :)

I love how Beau totally doesn't fit in the bed, yet he thinks he does. He's got half of his J-Lo booty hanging out of the bed and all of his arms are hanging out the front.

Crazy guy!
