It’s “Jack’s” Birthday! A Friend of Coasties, Indeed…

My good old boy, Jack, is 10 years old now! Wow! What a ride it has been…

“It’s time to get up,” I thought, keeping my eyes closed, so Jack thinks I’m still asleep.

“Hey mom, time to get up,” Jack whispered softly in my ear while his cold nose touched my cheek. He thinks it’s another birthday, I know.

Jack believes it is his birthday everyday, all day long. And, I do too. We celebrate birthdays everyday, and he knows this too…

Whether it’s my birthday, Jack’s birthday or someone else’s birthday, we celebrate birthdays everyday…

That’s what we do, Jack and me. We love birthdays everyday.

Doesn’t everybody celebrate birthdays everyday? I hope they do.

Jack made birthday’s everyday. For he knows I love him and birthdays too.

Jack knows it is his birthday, I can tell. He even knows where the doggie cookies are, but he also knows he must wait for mom…

When my eyes open just slightly, Jack jumps up with that big happy smile. “It’s my birthday too,” he barked with a tail wag and a grin…

Jack makes me feel like it’s my birthday everyday. That’s why I love Jack so. For Jack made birthday’s everyday just for me…

Jack knows too, that a birthday cookie comes his way everyday. He also knows I love him with all my heart when he gets his birthday cookie each day, maybe more than once a day if he is a good boy…

We always go on a car ride on his birthday, but we do that everyday too. That’s why we love birthdays everyday, all day long…

Jack loves long walks in the forest, on the beach or a short stroll around the harbor close to home. Jack loves to go down by the fishing boats where we both love to go.

Finally, chicken nuggets is the evening dish for Jack. For everyday is a birthday celebration for Jack and me…

Time for Jack’s nap, and one for me too…

“Jack’s” nap on his birthday and everyday…
