Happy 11th Birthday, Katie Lou

Last night and this morning Katie Lou has been less than impressed with my burrowing my head in her stomach and being snuggly and belly rubbing and kissy faced as I sing Happy Birthday to her.  She may go postal in her old age if she hears, Happy Birthday to my Goose!  Happy Birthday to my Goose! Happy Birthday my Goosey Lou!  Happy Birthday to my Goose!  One. more. time.  I know she likes it - a lot - but won't admit it.

Just like she pretends not to like it when I sing to her 'I'm A Little Teapot.'  It goes (with Katie making dance motions and all) - - Herz a little teapot, short and stout.  Herz gots a handle and herz gots a snout.  When herz gets all steamed up, hear herz shout.  Tip her over and pour herz out!

Or when I sing 'You are my Sunshine.'  You are my sunshine.  My only sunshine.  You make me happy, your butt is grey.  You'll never know dear, how much I love you.  Please don't take my sunshine away.

Happy Birthday to my first born.  My first love.  My first sweet girl.  You will always be my crooked toothed, grey butt, yarn for ears, coal for a nose, and pom pom tailed sunshine.

Lou Lou, you know my antics better than anyone and are the only one that truly knows how to make me happy when I am sad.  It started out eleven years ago with just you and I kiddo, but with some hesitiation you've managed to accept the people (and other dogs) that have come into (and out of) our lives through the years.

I know you don't always ever like being the big sister, but your two legged little brother sure enjoys his quality time with you.  Maybe one day he can touch you?
You taught Hill how to roll over

and are always willing to lay around and watch TV with him
You are the smartest, most humanistic four legged baby that I know. Even though you wouldn't admit to it in front of everyone, you truly care about the well being of everyone...even Foxy Mama.

I'm saddened that another year has come and gone, but I'm so glad you've been there by my side through it all.  I couldn't imagine it any other way. 

Love you more than you'll ever know!
