I can’t believe it is 12 months since I posted “Birthday Boy”! The year has gone so quickly, and I haven’t managed many posts since! Sadly there has been a change to the mix of our household since then (RIP Miss April) but on the whole it’s been a pretty good year. But it was a special weekend for our Rupert (Rupie) – he turned 10 years old, but is ageing very gracefully!
He maybe a little whiter around the face, and his run is not quite as spritely, but he’s happy, healthy and loving life, which is so wonderful to see. He chases his sister Billie, but has no chance of catching her (she is a Greyhound after all, so I don’t think his age has anything to do with it!). He chats away to us in the mornings and when we come home from work. His favourite thing of all time is to ride in in the car, sitting like a little old man looking out the window. He makes us laugh with his clown-ish ways, and we’re so grateful he came into our lives nearly 10 years ago.
Rupie (and his brother Ralphie – RIP) were wedding presents, which means it’s also our 10th wedding anniversary this week! We’re both a little plumper and a little grayer too, but we’re still loving loving life and looking forward to a weekend away with our closest friends.
Rupie doesn’t like party hats or balloons, so we got him his two favourite things – a treat in a box! He loved ripping the box, but loved the treat too!
Although the weather was cold this past weekend, the sun was shining so we took the opportunity to get out in the fresh air with Rupie and Billie. When we were all tired and slow at the end of our long walks, Rupie was still jogging along, sniffing and playing with any other dog we came across! We call him our Eveready Bunny! But he did have a snooze in the afternoon before bouncing around waiting for his dinner!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY OUR BEAUTIFUL BOY XXXX
