Sunny is twelve

Today is Sunny's twelfth birthday. How’d that happen? The Instagram photo above is her official birthday portrait, though, as in previous years, she wasn’t too keen on posing. Even so, I like it.

Sunny has had a bad time lately. Most day she seems like her same old self—even better than she had been in awhile. But other days she’ll skip a meal and, sometimes, have some diarrhoea. It occurred to me today that after the better part of two weeks on antibiotics, her system may still be a bit screwed up. I gave her a little bit of yoghurt today, which she liked. She was lovely and happy today, which is a good thing. The most important thing, actually.

So, Sunny’s had another trip around the sun, and she’s the last of us to have their first birthday since Nigel died. I’m the one who’s been sensitive about that—they didn’t seem to be bothered on their birthdays. It must be nice to be a dog.

Happy Twelfth Birthday, Sunny!

Yes, and with a hint of "would you stop taking photos, already?!"

Did you show Sunny your previous post re: the need for photos? Maybe Sunny will take some pics of you.
