Today we are throwing a Jack Russell birthday party in honour of Cruzy’s second birthday! As in today, Cruzy has been with us for 1 year and 7 months and he has brought more joy and adventure in our lives than we have ever imagined!
Being a first time dog owner, I was a bit anxious of how my obsessive cleaning habits will go hand in hand with a puppy in the house. I remember asking my friends who already had dogs in their houses how did they cope with dog hair and dogs sleeping in their beds, and up until now I cannot believe I became that kind of person too!
Yes, I have become the kind of person that allows the dog sleep under the duvet in her bed with her. The kind of person that pets the dog and eats a sandwich without washing her hands. And the kind of person that gives snout kisses to the dog. If you feel disgusted, then please accept my apologies. My main point is that a dog changes you and you change with it in so many, wonderful ways! To my sister (and family), I became more dirty, but to me I became less obsessed with cleaning the house and more focused on enjoying life with a dog. And I ought that (among many other things) to wee Cruzy!
^^ someone doesn’t seem particularly happy about his birthday ^^
Today, it’s all about Cruzy! Even though it is rainy he has been walked twice already, he had a wee meet-and-greet with other people at Starbucks and he is currently in his bed sleeping, completely oblivious that I am cooking his favourite meal for later on – chicken with carrots an oatmeal – yum!
So, happy birthday wee sausage boy of 47 cm length! May you live a happy life filled with tasty biscuits and long countryside walks. And may you bring more joy than you have ever brought in our lives so far!
With Love from Mummy x
