Larry and our big girl, Lucie, share the same birthday, or at least we celebrate them on the same day. When we rescued Lucie from the Colorado Saint Bernard Rescue @ gotdrool.org 7 years ago, all we knew was that her birthday was in December, but we did not have an exact day. So to make things easier, we just decided to celebrate her special day on Larry’s special day, December 10th.
As I mentioned in my previous post It’s Birthday Day – Part 1 – Breakfast Burritos Larry made breakfast burritos for his co-workers. I made his favorite meal for dinner after I got home. Larry’s favorite meal is Steak Oscar. Steak Oscar Other than that, Larry’s birthday was pretty low-key. It wasn’t a big number and it did not end with either a zero or a five, plus it was a “school day”. Both of us had to get up early for work today, so going out and painting the town red was not an option (not that we do that anyway). He will be celebrating more tonight when he goes to the Av’s game. Larry is a big hockey fan, and the Avalanche is our team. Go Av’s!!!!!!
Lucie got a new “baby” for her birthday. She was very happy with it. She has been carrying it around with her all day. Lambchops seems to be a favorite of both Lucie and Vinnie. This one is their 3rd. Lucie is very gentle with her babies whereas Vinnie likes to destroy them. Hopefully Vinnie will let Lucie enjoy her Lambchops for awhile before he decapitates it and rips out the squeaker. 🙂 Lucie is now 8, which is up there for a big dog. She is showing her age, but then again, aren’t we all. She knows she is well loved, and that is really all that matters. Larry is slightly older than 8. He’ll tell you he feels pretty old too though. 🙂
Happy Birthday to both Larry and Lucie. Love you lots.
