15/03/10 Happy Boneday to me!

Today it is my Boneday and I am 7 years old and waiting patiently for Whitevanwoman to give me the bone which she brought home a couple of days ago and which has been “hidden” in the kitchen ever since (Ha! I sussed out straightaway where it was). I’m really hoping Whitevanwoman will let me have it now but I have a sneaky suspicion that I will have to wait until after I’ve had my dinner tonight.

Whitevanwoman said to me that as you get older, birthdays get less exciting, and that you reach a point where you really don’t want to celebrate the fact that you have got a year older. She says that usually happens when you become middle-aged. I think Whitevanwoman must have become middle-aged a long time ago, because as far as I can remember, she has never really got that excited about her birthday, apart from when she had a birthday nearly 2 years ago when she said it was a “Big One”. I think that means that its an age with a “0″ at the end. She said to me that humans have quite a few birthdays like that but most dogs only have one birthday with an “0″ at the end. Somehow that doesn’t really seem fair to me.

Apparently now I am on the verge of becoming middle-aged. I don’t feel middle-aged and I try hard not to act middle-aged. The only real difference in me now from when I was a youngster is that I like to have a good long sleep after a long walk instead of just a quick nap, and I have to admit somewhat reluctantly that I think my white goatee is getting more obvious and I’m getting a white moustache now as well as a white goatee. But I can live with both of those without any real problems, so I can’t see how being middle-aged is that much of a big deal.

So long as my birthday bones keep coming, I’m quite happy to have as many birthdays as possible
