It's my Birfday!
Leeroy: "Today is my birfday! I am one! Nobody believes I am one, they all think I am still a puppy. I will be getting a special birfday dinner and cake and presents too!"
Rupert: "He'll be sharing the food with me, though. Kellie said so."
Leeroy: "Yah, yah....oh, Kellie was at the Ottawa Humane Society's Furball last weekend. She said it was really great and a really nice couple won her donation. Kellie was all dressed up and had these weird shoes on with sticks at the heels...she said I wasn't allowed to chew on the sticks. I don't know what else they would be there for...?"
Rupert: "We waited up for her to get home, it was really late but we still danced when she got in!"
Leeroy: "Oh, yeah...that was fun! The Furball night raised over $110,000 this year! What a great cause!"
Rupert: "That would buy alot of food!"
Leeroy: "Rupert, simmer with the food.....This week's painting feature is called "Playful Peter". It is a memorial to a dear greyhound in the US. His owners lost him suddenly and miss him so much. You can tell what a loving soul he is, what a nice way to remember him."
Rupert: "Peter's fur colours are really neat. Kellie says he was a brindle. I love his happy eyes!"
Leeroy: "Me too. Let's go tell Kellie that we did our post. I think it's time for us to go for a big walk, it's finally sunny out and warm enough. We can think about Peter on our walk."
Rupert: "Good idea, bro....and by the way, happy birthday....I'm glad you're here."
Leeroy: "RUPERT!? Are you getting emotional with me? You LOVE me?! Is that a tear in your eye?!!!"
