I Spent My Birthday in the Kennel

You all know how neglected I am and now I have to tell you my sad tale of even more dire neglect. Yesterday was my 2nd Birthday and instead of getting to spend it with Barbara and go on a fun outing and get special snacks, I was at K9 Kindercare.

Now don't get me wrong. I like to stay at K9 Kindercare. When Barbara dropped me and Niamh off there the week before Christmas I was happy to be there. I always make friends with the other dogs because I like to play all the time. We even had snow which was lots of fun. Here is a picture of me with Ginger and Twinkie. We are investigating something that Twinkie found under the snow.



We got our Christmas presents at the kennel (new stuffies and bones) and we expected Barbara to pick us up on Tuesday. A week is plenty of time to spend in the kennel. But there was lots of snow in NY which messed up the airports and her flight was cancelled!! She couldn't get a flight back to NC until today which meant I had to stay at the kennel for my birthday. Boo hoo! No presents, no outing, no special treats! See how neglected I am?

So we are all back home and Barbara has promised to make it up to me. I think I will try to look really pathetic so she feels very guilty about missing my birthday.

Happy Barkday Ambrose! At least you were surrounded by doggies who loved you for your barkday. Glad Barbara made it back safely on the flying machine!

Now, now, Ambrose... Aren't you being a tiny bit of a drama queen...? Poor Barbara doubtless desperately wanted to be there for your birthday and felt awful at her flight being cancelled and we do not think you should give her a hard time. After all, you are now TWO, and so very much a gentledog.

Woofs and Purrs,

PS: BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Ans also HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you!

Oh no! I'm sure you will get special attention now. I live in NY and we did get a ton of snow so your mom wasn't telling a fish story! Hope you all have a happy new year!
