So, I'm putting on Ziva's 1st birthday celebration pictures, which happened on the 27th.
With all of our visitors, I missed getting them onto the blog.
She always gets excited when Steve cooks hamburger patties, but she never gets one, so she wasn't expecting a surprise on August 27th. Steve cooked them, then walked them over to the table, which he doesn't do. He fiddled with the candle and she was a trifle curious about that. When he lit it she backed off from the flame. Steve was able to get her to the table with a lot of coaxing, so here she is with her "cake."
I think she was finally getting the idea that maybe this was for her.
Said a BIG happy birthday, removed the candle and placed her treat down for her.
In 3 seconds her "cake" was history and she spent another minute making sure it was all gone. She looked around like she was wondering "do I get any more?" then checked that the plate was empty, again.
She'd had her year check-up last week and is now 71 pounds of pure muscle and the vet said she's a beauty.
We already knew THAT!!!
