A Special Day For Fleecy—Her First Birthday

Fleecy’s First Birthday was on Saturday, October 1, 2011. I still remember bringing her home wrapped up in a blanket and all the midnight visits with her in the side yard, all the pulling of tablecloths, all the boisterous activities, the puppy classes, time out in the kennel, eating things she shouldn’t and lovely walks and talks. Her positive, playful nature and a lovely disposition make her friends with everyone. Her buddies, Poppy and Panda Bear sit with her routinely in the kitchen and she continues to play with Poppy regularly. The cats can escape through the baby gates across our two kitchen doors but have to really struggle now to get through them.

It was a cool, overcast day in the morning but turned warmer with intermittent sunshine in the afternoon. We sang Happy Birthday to her in the morning and gave her two new plastic squeaky toys—a colourful fully loaded hot dog and a pink Cinderella high-heeled shoe. In the afternoon we walked around Lake Margaret enjoying the sunshine and allowing her to be off the leash where we could. We started from our usual parking spot in Pinafore Park and walked to the back of the park and followed the Lake Margaret trail around the lake for the 1.15 km loop. There were lots of geese on the Lake. We kept her on the leash so she wouldn’t chase them but Bob and Fleecy walking on the path unnerved them and off they flew to congregate on the lake. We walked back to the car with our faces in sunshine and took Fleecy to Shaw’s Ice Cream for an ice cream treat and a drink of water. She lapped down her Vanilla ice cream and seemed to enjoy it right to the last lick. I had Gold Medal Ribbon in a sugar cone and Bob had a two-tier Caramel Apple Pie and Raspberry Chocolate in a waffle cone. We took many pictures of our day with Fleecy to remember her first birthday!
