Miss Tara thanks you all for your wishes. She's had a lovely day so far. Before school, I bribed her with some of my breakfast bacon to get her attention while I was taking her birthday photo.
We went to school at 10. School for Tara isn't about learning anything because she thinks that all this "marching up & down" has whiskers on it. She & I just had fun. We lay on the grass a lot between exercises & Tara rolled from side to side with a big smile on her face & her tongue hanging out the side of her mouth.
After that we went to the Moonee Valley Festival, where dog club has a stand every year. Over 3 hours of standing about, with people wanting to pat Tara & scratch her chest all the time. Tara LURVES having her chest scratched. I was loaded to the hilt with my treats, so Tara got to constantly "snack" without doing anything because people wanted to give her a treat.
After our "stint" at our club stand, we toddled off, got a drink & lay on the grass for a while. A whole heap more people wanted to come & pat our dogs, so Tara felt very "adored" by the time we left.
Home now & she crashed out on the hallway floor. I've just read her all your birthday wishes & given her all your loves, cuddles & kisses.
