What a Week

This has been a great week!  I got to see many of my friends outside.  I ran around with Gertie and her cousins, Remmie and Baretta.  Later in the week, I saw my friend, Hobie Baker.  The snow is still a little too high to run the fence line together, but it should melt soon.

We have finally had some nice weather!  It is slowly getting warmer and the snow is melting.  Next week, we should get rid of at least 8 to 10 inches of our snow pack!

I hoped we would have nice weather and the ice would melt because Mommy wanted to wear her new birthday shoes!  I think they are pretty.  If I wore shoes, I would like a pair like Mommy's.  This week was surely birthday week!  On Wednesday, Mommy and Daddy's friend had a birthday.  They said it was fun.

On Friday, it was Mommy's birthday.  I guess it was a big one.  She turned 50 years old.  I don't know exactly how much that is, but I think it's a lot.  I will be 5 in August and Mommy's age has a zero behind the five, so I'm sure that means she is old.  I don't have enough toes to count that high!

On Mommy's birthday, some of her awesome friends met and had a party.  Mommy and Daddy said it was great fun.  I wish I could have gone, but puppies weren't allowed there.  Mommy looked so happy when she came home that night and she said she was so lucky and grateful for wonderful friends.  Daddy looked very happy, too.

We received a very nice email from a woman and her 4 hear old son.  They wanted to tell us they enjoyed reading "Rudy O'Tooty."  They checked it out from the local library.  The woman said she really appreciated us sharing our stories and our lives.  She said her son wanted to write to make sure we were all right because Mommy's blind and we live in Minnesota.  We thought that was very cute and thoughtful.  It's always nice to hear from our fans.

We also heard from our illustrator.  He sent some of the drawings for the new book.  They look fabulous!  We are very excited.  If things continue to go well, we could make our deadline!

Warmer weather, thoughtful emails, fabulous illustrations, awesome friends, birthday fun, and pretty new shoes - all add up to a wonderful week in my mind!  What do you think?
