Today is a very special day. Lily turned 6 years old and of course it is Australia Day too. I remember when Lily was born and her breeder emailed us with the news. We considered naming her Matilda in honour of her birthday but Lily decided that suited her just fine. We were right.
Liam and I have been busy all morning making cupcakes for our little doggie birthday party this evening. We have delicious vanilla cupcakes for the humans and peanut butter/carrot cupcakes for the pooches. We took the dogs for a walk this morning and could smell the barbecues being ignited and saw the street and houses littered with flags of all sizes. There are kids riding past our front house right now on their scooters in nothing but their bikinis and board shorts. It is a beautiful for a celebration.
Happy birthday Lily and Happy Australia Day 🙂
And just because puppies make everything even more special, here is a shot of Lily around 2 weeks of age with her three sisters trying to stay cool. She is the one on the left being modest. She still sticks her tongue out when she sleeps 🙂
