In earlier days…
Regular readers of this blog will know of our current little white dog, Chicki.
But she was not the first Maltese we have cared for. Looking back over some photographs, I came across this, taken in 2010. It shows Rosie and Trixie (and me) in our backyard. The little ones were seniors then, but pretty sprightly.
They were litter sisters, and their mum had been owned by my own sister. A real family connection…
Chicki’s 2nd birthday
It’s not every day our little girl turns two!
Her day started with a much-loved present: a brand new rope toy, which instantly found its way between her teeth, where she held it for what seemed as long as possible for a little Maltese.
After breakfast, we’re off to the park for a stroll on the promenade, and a sniff around the distant beach.
Time to head home, but, surprisingly we all hear a chorus: Happy Birthday to You! Sure, it was meant for someone else, but we added our Chicki’s name, and it became the perfect end to her special day out.
Happy Birthday, Chicki!
