It is so hard to remember that it has been a year already since these wonderful fur babies came into our lives. This past Sunday we drove all the way from just outside of Cape May,N.J. to the west side of Pittsburg, Pa. to attend a birthday party for Patrick's littermate Jazz. Patrick enjoys going for car rides, and really loved this one. He is so well behaved in the car that we can forget that he is even there. Well after the 7 hour trip he was ready and rarin to go. We were greeted with open arms from everyone there, just as if we had been there many times before. What a truely wonderful group of people. For those of you who followed LaDonna's blog a year ago, you might remember that Barb had a favorite, but LaDonna would not tell us which one. Well all we can say is that when we walked in and she saw Patrick, she got a tear in her eyes as she said that she thought she would not get the chance to see him again. The party was amazing, Lisa, Jazz's mommy, set up games to play with the dogs and we all had alot of fun. What came next was so unexpected. Lisa had a beautiful cake made for Jazz's party. Lisa knew that Jazz's brother Peet was going to be there also, and she had cakes made for both Peet & Patrick. Then came the fun of giving each one of the birthday kids a small piece of thier cake. Jazz, like the little lady she is, was very ladylike as she gently ate her cake. Peet was next, and true to being a young boy, Peet dove right in and made short work of his piece. Then came Patrick. Everyone was wondering how he would be with the cake, gentle like his sister, or like his brother & make quick work of it. Well he suprised all of us by being a little gentleman and ate his cake very properly. I guess you could say he wanted to impress his mommy LaDonna & Aunt Barb, and show them how well behaved he can be, because when he is home, he will make very short work of anything he is given. We were also surprised that Patrick recieved so many nice gifts as well. We did not expect any gifts, as we just wanted to see LaDonna again and bring Patrick up for a visit. All the traffic we ran into on the way home, hmmmm we forgot it was a holiday weekend, was nothing compared to the wonderful time we had that day. LaDonna brought Gia with her so mom could help celebrate her kids birthday. I am putting some of the pics here so you can see just how much fun was had by all.
