My birthday was actually two days ago, but I got the best birthday present ever and I wanted to tell everyone about it. For my birthday, I got a No Dogs! The Animator's Wife took both The Dog and The Terror to work with her, and they were gone from six in the morning until nine at night. Osiris and I got the whole house to ourselves! We did some bird watching, stalked the gerbils, and played tag all day without any interruption from the dogs. It was wonderful!
I also got a new scratcher that I can hide under while I'm watching the birdies.
