Happy 6th Birthday, Lexi!

Where, oh where, does the time go??  I cannot believe that it is already early December and Lexi's birthday has come and gone once again.  I probably say it every year, but it feels like I just adopted my sweet pups a year or two ago.  I don't know how it can be almost 6 years since I brought little Lexi home!

Just like always, the dogs got to open a bag full of toys for Lexi's birthday.  They love opening their gifts, and we love watching them.  It is such a riot seeing them tear into the bag.  Of course, every time they see a gift bag they think it is for them, so it does make it a bit challenging to exchange gifts on human holidays without the dogs trying to help us open them.

Waiting for Kevin to give them their bag...


Hmmm.  Is there anything good in there?...


A new rope to play tug with!...



Zoe's favorite part is tearing the bags up...


A little game of tug with one of their new toys...




It probably seems like our dogs get a ton of toys every year, and you might be wondering how we aren't drowning in dog toys.  But the thing is our dogs are rough on toys, and they don't last long around our house.  That's why most of them come from the dollar store!  The toy pictured above lasted about 15 minutes, and then it had a gaping hole in it so Lexi proceeded to pull all of the stuffing out of it...


Just a little cuteness...



Another game of tug over the string from the handle of the bag...




Success!...


Until Zoe stole it!...


I just love that face!...


She had the tennis ball on this one destroyed in about 10 minutes, too!...


Gatsby and Daisy decided to get in on the action a bit, too!  The kittens have fit themselves into our household better than I ever could have dreamed.  I wouldn't go so far as to say that they are BFFs with the dogs, but our four fur babies do all get along really well.  The dogs accepted the kittens into the house with barely a glance and the kittens haven't been scared of the dogs, either.

Gatsby was being pretty brave and was right in the middle of all the commotion.  She did have to make a run for it and dive under the entertainment stand at one point to avoid being stepped on when the dogs got a little wild, though.

Here she is checking things out...



Gatsby has really unique eyes, and I am just in love with them!  They are green around the pupil and orange around the outside of her iris.  Here she is peeking at me...


Daisy is the wild child between the two kittens.  She's the one we are more likely to find climbing up on the top of someplace where she shouldn't be, but she was a little intimidated by the dogs being all crazy.  So, she did a bit more watching from afar...



As always, thanks for stopping by my blog!
