Happy (Belated) Birthday, Vegas!

Vegas had a birthday on Monday! While we definitely celebrated, I'm just very late getting to this post.

Sunday Leo and I had been at a tracking seminar but we got out a bit early and were home in time that I was able to spend it with my girl. We started with our local pet store, Critter Cabana, for some goodies. Vegas gets to pick out her own each year... This year she tried stealing things more than once....and I paid at the register for a few items already "used."
Crunching down on a "stolen" treat.
I had to laugh at the expression on the puppy's face.
One of the Sulcata Tortoises that roams around the store.
The loot!

Then we picked up her boy from home and headed to Sonic for an ice cream.

From there we headed back home only to take a walk to the park down the street from our house, just the two of us. And from there, I got to do a little reflecting, and basically just enjoyed my girl's company. She's such a blessing to me.

This was right as she was finishing a roll in something unidentifiable. lol

My favorite of the day....
A "strong eyed" Dane...?

Someone showed up in a wedding dress and set up a camera and tripod to take pictures. Of the groom? Not sure.
Mild temps for late October so she enjoyed some splashing around and wading in the Willamette River.

We headed home where she got dinner and enjoyed a nice evening on the couch watching movies with the boys.

I'm trying not to make a big deal out of her turning five. It has the potential to stress me out a lot if I think about it too much. Fortunately she's so youthful in her actions, her energy, and her spirit that it's easy to live each day just loving her for who she is and being thankful for the amazing bond we share.

Happy birthday, Vegas Rose. I love you with all my heart and look forward to many more birthdays together.
