A Barkday to Remember!

 Wow wow WOW! Guys, I'm three whole years old today! It doesn't seem real. I don't FEEL any more mature. I thought it would just kind of hit me by now.

But here I am, three years old, and definitely old enough to go on a grreat barkday adventure!! We had to do it yesterday, because Momma is being boring and working today. (And getting some kind of a shot that she's really happy about. I hope it's not rabies.) Anyways, I told Momma that her big idea BETTER not just be a photoshoot!!

But no, we were off into the grrreat unknown!!! I've been telling Momma that what I really wanted to do was go on a big adventurous hike like some of my furiends do. Going out into the wilds, matching my wits against dangerous animals, and breaking new ground!

We couldn't quite manage the wilds -- there was a paved walkway right next to us, but it still felt like we were really getting out there. Then we came across something I heard about from my friends Maggie and Ragnar -- a trippy-trap bridge! I was a little nervous crossing my furst one. You never know when there might be trolls underneath!

It was lots of fun! I even humored Momma and posed with her without any cookies!

By the time we spotted the second trippy-trap bridge, I was an old pro and ready to take on any trolls!!

Momma, this has to be 87 miles, right?? We walked FUREVER!!

We ended our walk at a pretty heart of hearts that was painted to match my Birthday Girl bandana. How nice of them to put it out just to celebrate my barkday!

Afterwards, we had to refuel from such major exertions. So we went to Sonic, and I gots a birthday cheeseyburger!!

Ohhh, that's always the best part of a barkday. But the adventure wasn't over yet!! When we gots home, there was a volcanic eruption! Can you believes it?! I got hard to work saving the poor dinos from the molten lava.

Don't worry, guys. I'll save you!

After my stunning heroics, I was treated to a special dinner -- freshly caught tree rat!

Phew!! When I asked for a barkday adventure, I didn't know how jam-packed it was going to be. This was the best barkday EVER. I think I'm glad Momma is working today. I know exactly what my plans for the day are....
