Birthday Sideshow


Happy Birthday, Marg! Thanks for all you do for animals and their peeps! You definitely have a heart of gold!

Guess what? Today is also my assistant's birthday! And because this is a BIG birthday (heck, they are ALL big at her age), I decided to let her share a few pictures from her "adventure" last week.

  
While I was stuck at home, doing this ...


She and my sissy were doing this ...


and seeing this ...


and this ...


That's right, they abandoned me in the the boring Midwest ...


 while they lived up in beautiful Arizona.


What's missing in this picture - ME! 


Now, if you look closely (middle on the left) the crazy lady waving her arms in the air is my assistant overcoming her fear of heights. All of a sudden, she's a mountain climber ...


Not impressed ...wake me when this sideshow is over.

Very proud of your mom though fur conquring her height fears. My mum has dat same fear...along withs bugs, clowns, breaking things, bridges, etc.

It wasn't very nice of your mom to leave you behind, but since it was her birthday, we'll give her a pass. Besides, it looks like it was really dusty and not much fun to walk in when you're low to the ground!

Happy birthday, Pip's Mom!!

Happpppeeeeee Birthday to your mom, Pip! That sure does look like a Most Grand adventure she went on. But I bet no matter what she says, she didn't have as much fun as she COULD have had if you had been there with her. I mean, how would it be pawsible to really have fun without Pip?
