|"Mom? What are you and Zimmie doing?"|
|"Well, yeah, I mean other than watching TV. Whatcha talking about?"|
|"You're talking about me? And my big day?"|
It took me a couple minutes. I mean, I just HAD my Adopt-a-Dave Day celebration, so it wasn't that. So what could it ... WAIT!!!
|"Woo! Tuesday is my birthday!!!"|
That's right, everybody!!! Today is the day we chose to celebrate my birthday and I am now 15 years old!!! Woo!!!
I'm fairly sure that means I'm allowed to get my driver's license here in the state of Kansas. Mom ran it past my vet last week when I went in to see her. Mom promised to keep me on a leash, of course -- I mean, yes, I'm 15, but I'm still a Siberian Husky!!! My vet said it's just a learner's permit and maybe just back and forth to school or work. That's going to be hard, since I'm home-schooled and work from home ... but we'll see what we can do!
Zim and I are doing lots of celebrating together.
|"Look, Zim. Every last trace of your really cool snow fort is gone."|
"I know, Dave. Happy birthday, big brother!"
Sure, I like snow as much as the next guy. But when you're 15, the bipeds get all concerned about you having good footing and stuff. Zimmie understands that and is happy that I'm not slipping around. He's really the best kid brother a guy could ask for!
I got to go on a walk with just me and Dad first thing this morning, then all four of us went on a walk together, then Zimmie and I took Mom around the block. It's been a great day, and it's not even lunch time! I hope all of you will take some time to CELEBRATE today!!!
|"This is the best 15th birthday EVER, Zim!"|
"Can I ride shotgun when you get your license? Mom can have the backseat!"
