Today is Hurricane Rogue’s 1st birthday!
It is so hard to believe that our little caramel monster is already a year old. Even though we haven’t had her an entire year, it seems as though she’s been a part of our lives forever. She is definitely maturing, but she’s also a little party animal 😉
Since we were heading to Southwestern Ontario for the weekend, Huib and I decided to give Rogue her birthday toy early – a pink bunny that you can put a plastic water bottle into. As soon as I handed her the toy, she ran around the house like a fool, shaking and tossing the bunny around. Unfortunately though, Canyon also felt the bunny should be his, so as soon as she stopped running around, he went over and stole it from her mouth. In addition to the pink bunny, we got Rogue a new collar and leash that is a light grass green and different blue colours in a sort of hawaiian pattern (I think) and a big pillow bed for her kennel – both of which she has had for about a month. Then, because our little caramel monster is a coffee lover, we got some chicory root and made some coffee flavoured treats for her to enjoy. We weren’t sure how the cookies would turn out, but during and after baking, they smelled quite deliciously coffeeish.
Today I have a final examination for my Business & Consumer Law course, so Rogue is gone to Chatham with Canyon and Huib. I’m sure she’ll have a good time with them and I know she’ll be spoiled.
Happy 1st Birthday my little Hurricane, may you have a day to remember. You have brought so much love and laughter into our lives, that I don’t know if I could ever imagine life without you.
Before I sign off, I’d also like to wish Ruby, Snickers, Josie, Cody, “Flower” and “cole” a very, very Happy 1st Birthday!
