The One with the Late Party

Party time!! Miss Cali quickly recovered from her upset tummy and the belated birthday party was underway. It was a beautiful afternoon!

Though you can't see it well in this photo, Cali took a turn with the birthday bandana!

And then on to birthday treats! I love a good party!

Look how much our baby bear has grown! This is her photo at 4 weeks - her stuffed animal is almost bigger than she is!

She still can work these puppy eyes! They certainly worked for her 8 years ago! The two-leggers were leaving Petsmart one mid-September afternoon in 2001, when Papa spied a lady carrying a tiny black fuzzball. Earlier that day, this kind lady had rescued a four week old Cali from a cardboard box at a flea market 60 miles away from where she lived, ironically this flea market is close to where we live now. She was told that if the puppies weren't adopted, they were going to leave them in the box at the market!! So she scooped up the last puppy and headed back home - to mom and papa's neighborhood. She was bringing Cali to the adoption day at Petsmart to see if the rescue league would consider taking her in, when papa intercepted them. After some mild persuading, mom agreed to hold Cali and the rest was history! Mom knew the moment she held her, she wouldn't be able to give her back.... and after looking into those puppy eyes, she never let go!

I'm so thankful to the lady that brought her to my two-leggers. Cali is an awesome big sister!!
