Tonight Ruff had a big surprise birthday party that came 3 days early. I'm pretty sure he didn't know it was early but I did. I wanted to make sure I didn't forget because something else is going on around here in the next few days that could have easily got me preoccupied. And that wasn't the only surprise.
In the past 20 years whenever one of the Rottweilers had a birthday we have always had a meatloaf birthday cake, topped with mashed potato icing. When old man Axl started breaking all of the longevity records I substituted something a bit more elegant, a Filet Mignon steak. But tonight Ruffin got to enjoy a whole roast pork with the same mash potato icing.
I think he liked it.
And I got one of Ruff's famous kisses.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BIG GUY.
