Nothing gets a bigger birthday smile than your 12 pound dog hiking up the stairs, balloon tied to collar, ready for a tail waggin' good time.
Logan's birthday was Sunday, and her BFF and I got up early, squeezed as many balloons as we thought we could fit into my Mini Cooper, and stopped at the local coffee shop for bagels and coffee concoctions.
We tiptoed into the house and realized the birthday girl was already awake. We quickly set about lighting candles, selecting music, toasting bagels and preparing for a flurry of discarded bows and wrapping paper, along with birthday hugs and wishes. We decided the mutt needed a balloon and he obliged, humoring me as I tied one to his collar. As if on cue, off he went, looking for Logan, to prove that he is indeed a true party animal.
