We are so glad your here with us today!
July 21'st (yesterday) was a very special day.
My girl Lexus turned 2 years old!
The first thing I would like to do, is send a shout out, and a huge thank you to our pal Earl, and his mom, from the blog Earls World, for this beautiful card they made for Lexus today.
Thanks Earl and mom! You made Lexus's special day, even brighter!
Lexus is my little sweetheart. She loves to snuggle with me, she is the smallest in the pack, she was the runt in her litter, which came from a backyard breeder out of Quebec. I was so glad to have found her, and be able to bring her home with me, and become a part of our family.
Lexus, I wrote this poem for you :
I added the poem to her birthday card that myself and my daughter created for Lexus :
I thought it would make her day special to have some time to herself with us.
We took her out for a walk to the pet store, so she could pick out a few toys and treats.
On the way, we stopped to take a photo of her in front of some flowers :
We continued on our way to the pet store.
Once we were there, she got spoiled even more when I told the lady who worked there, that it was her birthday. She gave her some treats, and gave her tons of love!
She sniffed a bunch of toys, so I took a few down off the shelf, and she chose 3 toys for herself :
Here she is posing with her presents.
I had full intentions on making her a homemade birthday cake, as I always do for my pets birthdays, but while we were standing in line at the pet store, she was extremely interested in some of their homemade biscuits, so I decided to buy a few of those, instead of a cake.
She knew she was getting spoiled, and she enjoyed every minute of it!!
She loved her biscuits!
Of course, I bought some for my other two huskies as well :
Check out Lexus's birthday video, as she plays with one of her new toys :
This next part of the post, ties in with her birthday as well, but is also part of the Tuesday Tails blog hop.
This hop is hosted by Lisa from Dogs 'n' Pawz and Sue from Talking Dogs.
While we were in the pet store, I saw a crate which had 2 kittens in it.
Immediately, my instincts took over, and I began thinking to myself "Oh my dog! This pet store is selling mill pets!" I was judging already, without knowing. I decided to ask the lady who worked there, where the kitties were from. I learned that these kittens are part of our local shelter! I was so relieved!
The pet store takes part in a cat adoption program, in order to help our shelter kitties find a home.
*phew* So today for Tuesday Tails, instead of sharing an adoptable husky of the week, I am sharing my local shelter, LAWS. There is no way, you can go to their website, and see the animals furry, hopeful faces, and not want to adopt! This shelter is just outside of Ottawa, so if you live in the area, please share our post, and help get some pets a home!
Visit LAWS here.
They were both so playful and happy, and were very interested in Lexus!
It was hard for me to leave them. I am the type of person that would adopt every animal in site, if I could.
With my pack being full as it is, I decided to do my part by spreading the word for them.
I hope through my post, someone will look at this face, and find their furever kitty!
That's all from the huskies today, thanks for coming by and celebrating Lexus's 2nd birthday with us!
See you tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday!
