A Monday Birthday Dog Day Short & Sweet

Good Morning Everyone!

Guess what day it is?

If you said International Skeptics Day, you’re right, but that’s not what I’m thinking of 🙂

Today is my Brown Dog’s birthday!  She is 7.  That means that she and I will be the same age this year.  (I’ll let you figure the math :))

I think she would enjoy a rousing chorus of

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday dear Stinky (yeah… she rolled in something awful yesterday and in spite of the bath is still a little odoriferous… which makes her very happy… have you noticed a theme here? :))
Happy Birthday to you!!!

And of course I will be making her a cake, so stop by later for a slice 🙂

Speaking of cake, which is sweet, reminds me that we haven’t done a Short & Sweet for a while, and what better time for inspiration than now?

In between navigating my basement by canoe and bailing (oh how do I love thee, unnatural January rain?  Let me count the ways… uh, okay, maybe not :)) I persuaded my old computer to part with this picture of Baby Brown Dog.

In honor of her birthday, let’s think up stories for her to star in :))

You can think up a title, or an opening line, or a one sentence pitch or, if you’re really ambitious, all three!

I’ll go first.

Title: One, Two, Three!  Play With Me!
Opening Line:  One, two, three!  Play with me!  How many puppies do you see?
Pitch: A little brown dog wants to play, eat, play, walk, play, roll, and play some more, counting everything as she goes.

Now it’s your turn 🙂  Miss Brown says thank you in advance – she knows she will love your ideas to turn her into a literary star! 🙂

Have a marvelous Monday everyone!  And don’t forget to stop by later for a slice of birthday cake (or two :))
