|DOGraze Birthday Gift Box for Alice|
As already mentioned, yesterday was Alice's seventh birthday (or 44th in 'human years'!).
To mark the occasion, Rachel had got her some meaty birthday treats from etsy creator DOGraze, that Alice just went nuts for. The smell of the treats clearly worked their magic on her as she tried to eat through the box before I could even open them.
We're now trying to ration them out like normal treats. Given her way, Alice would devour the entire contents of the box in a single meal.
|Nom, nom, nom!|
After "presents", we loaded up the car and headed out to Rachel's parents.
Our first family trip in well over a year.
They were all prepared for Alice's birthday as well, with decorations around the house and a hot dog in her bowl (Alice, of course, has her own bowls at Rachel's parent's house).
After energetically greeting "granny and grandad", she raced through their house to the kitchen where she scarfed down the hot dog in no time at all.
After a bit more running around, she wanted to go out in the garden to race about even more - checking every corner, every blade of grass, to see what had changed since she'd been there last.
You could tell Alice was so excited to be revisting her second home again after such a long break - after all, 15 months for us is almost a decade in dog years!

Eventually, she wore herself out and come the evening, back home and watching Eurovision, she snoozed.
