Happy Birthday, Dana!!

Friday was Dana's 12th birthday!  She is out first greyhound and very special indeed.  She isn't the bravest or the most snuggly one..but she is the sweetest one!  She is definitely in the "spectrum" but that is what adds to her 'special-ness'.  And boy does she love to roo and dance!
Happy Birthday, Roo Roo Pants!!!
I think 2013 will be the year our house moves from "senior home" to "holy cow, how old are they?" least I hope so!!!
We spent a day at the new Park house. i think my kids approve.
And no, Shane has not figured out how to lay in a dog bed yet.  His aim is just a little off every time.
My parents visited for the weekend.  It has been so cold and subsequently very dry. Which leads to lots of static electricity.  Normally, that just means we shock the dogs and each other often. But for a Shih means something totally different!
 And our stairs are complete.  We know have a very chimeric deck, but oh well. The stairs are now composite and easier for the dogs to maneuver.  We still have to apply the grippy tape stuff, but it has been too cold for it to stick.  So far they seem to like it.  Dana was petrified of it at first, but now she gets it.  Hopefully, by this time next year, the whole deck will look like this.
Stay warm!!!!

Happy Birthday, Dana! I think the dancing and rooing girls are always the most fun.
Sorry Shane has a hard time figuring out those dog beds BUT am so very happy he has one to lay in now.

Dana is gorgeous - reminds me a bit of my first greyhound, who lived to be 13 1/2 years old. Such a sweetie, he was.

Shane - ! Hahahaha!!! And the little Shi Tzu!

I think your deck looks great. I don't know what it was like before but I'm guessing open treads? Solid stairs will be much easier.

Hope your birthday was great, Dana! You are a very special hound indeed. You helped us learn how wonderful greyhounds are. :)
