It's My Big Day!

Woo, everypup and everycat!  It's me, Dave!  I almost forgot about what day today was.  I mean, there we were the other evening, about to settle in for some quality TV time.  Zim was doing his "mixing things up" thing, sitting next to our mom.  They seemed to be ... I don't know.  Being secret-like!

"Mom?  What are you and Zimmie doing?"

IMG_0094e Dave
"Well, yeah, I mean other than watching TV.  Whatcha talking about?"

IMG_0099e Dave
"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!"



  1. Happy Birthday Davy!!! I'd trust that face to drive me to work and back. I see you and mom like to watch Person of Interest. Very nice. It's one of Mikey and Aria's favorite shows.

  2. A BIG Happy Bday to you, Dave!

  3. Dave my brother HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! 15 really? Well you sure don't look it. Must be all those great walks you go on. As my birthday present to you I would like to hire you to drive Zim and you over here so Zim can teach me proper snow fort building. My MOM would love to hug you and rub your belly while Zim and I build a couple of real cool forts. And then we could go on a real cool birthday walks around my hood. I've told the birdies all about you guys and they can't wait to meet you. So after you have family birthday fun hop in the car and get yourself over here. Plenty of snow for every dog.

  4. Sending some Texas-sized Birthday Wooo-shes to Dave! Have a wooo-nderful 15th birthday celebration. (Don't forget to nap too!)

  12. Hi Dave, Happy Happy Birthday buddy! I can't believe you are 15-you look like you are still a kid. Maybe 7 or 8 but not 15-your mom and dad must take good care of you. Tell mom I homeschooled our daughters, so if she needs ideas with you, I can help. Who am I kidding, I need all the help I can get with Hunter.
    Have a great day!
    Woofs, Noreen & Hunter
