Brea's Birthday and One Year Anniversary

Happy Birthday, Brea!  According to the records from the veterinarian's office, Brea turned three on May 20.  That's about 28 in people years.  I grilled some hotdogs and gave Brea and Siri one with their dinner to celebrate.

The dogs weren't really in a mood to pose today.  They were more interested in watching some kids practicing on the ball field.

Since she came to live with me almost a year ago, Brea shows a lot more interest in the people we see when we're out walking, and she's more willing to let new people come up and pet her, as long as they don't make any sudden moves.  A lot of that comes from watching Siri, who is a glutton for attention.

Playing in the Mud

Today, Brea and Siri played with an amazingly durable stuffed animal.  I think it was supposed to be a raccoon or a weasel.  The two squeakers in it stopped squeaking a long time ago - they lasted about 5 minutes into the first game - the rest of the toy has remained intact, despite some vigorous tugging.

Both dogs seem to be attracted to the wettest part of the muddy area.  Siri spent a lot of time here today, too.

This was the stuffed animal toy about a month ago...

...after the first time they played with it.

This is how it looks today.
