For anyone who's never had a birthday before, it can be kinda scary.
Mostly because of the hat. It's a little bit like one of those head-cones they make you wear after you get parts removed (and it's shiny). I had to wear one of those head-cones for an entire WEEK once and didn't enjoy a single minute of it. So when my human put the shiny hat on me, I figured I'd have to wear it for a long time too. Just thinking about that made me never want to have another birthday again!
Thank god the shiny hat was just for today's picture. And once you get past the hat part, birthday's aren't so bad. I got to eat a great big dog cookie for breakfast and brother Dutch says I'll probably get a new toy or something before the day's over. He's had 5 birthdays, so I guess he knows what he's talking about. My friend google said birthdays can also come with singing (eeek), cake (YES!), presents (toys?).... and wrinkles.
I was born with wrinkles and am not sure if there's room for any new ones, but I'll take some cake. There's always room for more cake.
