We Are NOT Mentioning Our Hu-Aunt’s Birthday

For the last several years on this date, we might have mentioned our Hu-Aunt’s birthday. We are absolutely, positively not mentioning her birthday this year.

As the Queen of the Herd, I will make sure.

Yes, on this very date for the last few years, we might have mentioned that our Hu-Dad’s sister was having a birthday. We have vowed not to mention which day her birthday falls on this year. Not us. No way.

Chief of Security to assure we will not mention the date this year.

So, this year, we will just keep the date of her birthday a mystery, totally unlike the last few years on this very date. This year, we will just wish the Hu-Dad’s sister the Happiest of Days today. Just like any other day.

We are just practicing the Happy Birthday song.

Mud Freckles

January 10, 2009 |

Lots of snow, lots of rain, muddy roads, four-wheel drive, and an open jeep window.  This is when a dog should not hold their head out of the window, as demonstrated by Natasha and Kodiak as they show off their Mud Freckles.
