Thank you all for the birthday wishes for Sampson yesterday. I did my best to give him one of his normal (before his injury) days.
We started the day off with a birthday kiss and then we took our normal morning walk. After he had his breakfast he went downstairs to visit his Grandma. This was something he used to do every morning but since his ACL injury, he hasn’t been able to go down the stairs.
I did not take the day off of work, so when I got home we took a walk around the block. This has always been our “I’m rushed for time or the weather’s bad” walk, but since his injury his walks have been timed, so around the block is now a BIG DEAL.
I prepared him a nice dinner of beef hearts and kale and after Hubby and I had eaten he got his birthday gift.
He hasn’t had a new toy in quite some time and it was really well appreciated.
When it came time for snack, he got his special birthday treat instead of his Kong.
I actually think he might have liked this better. He likes his Kong but typically he gets to a certain point and then waits for me to dig the rest out. This was far more enjoyable for him!!
I called it Mr. Bill, but it didn’t really look like Mr. Bill! LOL
Yesterday I promised to tell you what it was made of. I used all of his favorite fruits.
I started with one of the round containers I get when I order Chinese food. (It was much easier to use than the dish I used for Delilah’s treat.) I placed a layer of pumpkin (probably 1/4 inch thick) then I used Sampson’s favorite fruits to make a face. “Mr. Bill” has two peach slices for his eye brows, clusters of blueberries for his eyes, a chunk of mango for his nose and half a slice of canned pineapple for his mouth. I added a little bit of Kefir to it and froze it.
