A couple of birthday cards

Hi everyone.  I hope you're all doing well.  Nikki asked about my dogs recently, so I thought I'd give you an update.  Riley is as rambunctious as ever, although her age has mellowed her out a bit.  She doesn't torture our cat as much as she used to, which I am especially thankful for because he is pretty old and recently had to have one of his rear legs amputated.  He has been doing great since the amputation though!

Baxter is as sweet as ever, but I don't think his fears and anxiety are going to improve any more than they already have.  He is still very fearful of any person that isn't my husband or me.  He doesn't ever really let his guard down.  When we are all in the living room watching television, he is always darting his eyes to the windows by the door as if he's fearful the boogeyman is going to burst through at any moment.  Sometimes I think he would be really relaxed in a sound and sight deprivation unit!  He is such a loving dog though.

Here are some recent photos - bear in mind that spring has just come and Riley is due for her summer cut!  I keep putting it off though  because the weather keeps changing.  They are even calling for the possibility of snow this weekend!

Here's our cat.  He is looking pretty good for 15 years old!

Here's Riley - looking at a squirrel in the tree

And here is Baxter.

I do have a couple of birthday cards to share with you.  The first one uses a Bugaboo image.  I love Bugaboo images, and they have so many fun ones to choose from.  This was made for a former co-worker of mine.

And here's one with a cute hedgehog - I can't remember the name of the company who makes these.

I am so glad you shared about about how your pups and kitty are doing! I have missed the stories about them!! That Riley is so stinkin cute with long hair! And Baxter is beautiful-I am so glad he found you guys to love and care for him, he sounds like he has probably been in a bad place before to be so scared all the time.
