It’s My Birthday!

As a diabetic alert dog, time is something I don’t understand. But apparently, I have walked through another human year and turn eight years old.

I love birthdays.

I know the sound of the song well. In fact, when I am in the company of someone who is having a birthday and the song is sung, my ears perk up.

I look around for the treats I am about to eat, but only get a regular kibble from Mom. Oh, well. I’m never disappointed when I get something from the treat bag.

Everyone says I’m getting old because I have some grey whiskers showing up on my chin. But most people think my brindle coloring is me turning grey.

Mom politely tells people it’s a rare genetic defect that gives me the look of muddy or grey paws and face.

Mom has a genetic defect too. But she quickly tells them it’s to her benefit since I’m extremely handsome because of it.

The thing about birthdays is, I get something called presents. Mom doesn’t wrap them up like she would for humans because I am not a destructive dog. I could never tear up paper or even de-stuff a toy, for that matter.

I live with an older small dog who would, and he will steal my new toys, but that’s for another story.

Until then, I’m going to enjoy this birthday thing and hope it lasts a long time.

    I know how your pup feels. I have a 14 year old little guy named Tank. Had to give him a big name because he is so little. He is also a diabetic. Say Happy Birthday to him fromTank and me.

    Aiden, hope your day is filled with sunshine and happiness. I relate to the graying hair situation. I’m going to use your line about genetic defect. Hugs to your family.

  6. Ahhhhhhh! Happy Birthday, Aiden!! I sure miss running around the back yard with you while your mom and my mom talked.

    Happy birthday Aiden. Sophie and Ella say happy birthday and that they will unstuff any toy you get… it’s called “snowing” at our house when mom comes home and there is white stuffing everywhere!! We love you! Aunt Cindy and ruff ruff from Sophie and Ella.
