Now that I have been in the blogosphere for a while, I have read of all sorts of elaborate birthday celebrations that dogs are given by their people. Not quite being one year old yet, I have not gotten to enjoy such a celebration yet...but I was so looking forward to it. It's been so much fun anticipating what flavor of cake my Spokeswoman might be planning for me...and ICE CREAM CAKE from DAIRY QUEEN?! And what sorts of party favors there would be...BEGGIN' STRIPS? And WHO I would get to invite over?!!! I was counting down the days until my FIRST BIRTHDAY. (just ten short days away!!!...June 15th!!!)
Imagine my devastation and the utter depths of my despair when the Spokeswoman recently mentioned so casually (oh the cruelty!) that the Spokespeople and the Ninjas are leaving for Colorado and won't be back (gasp) until June 17th. Did she not REMEMBER my birthday is the 15th???????....my very FIRST birthday??????
I probably won't even have a computer to reach out to my cyber friends on. I'm sure the Selfish Spokeswoman will take the laptop with HER. She won't take ME...but heaven forbid she leave the precious LAPTOP behind. Heaven Forbid she SHARE the laptop with ME on MY BIRTHDAY...
I was so utterly crushed that I actually bore my heart to the psychotic Border Collie and the goofie Newfie. Now you KNOW I was beaten down to stoop THAT low! Did EITHER of them offer me one iota of sympathy? No! They both just looked stupidly at me like they had never even HEARD of birthdays. Turns out neither of them even KNOWS what THEIR birth date is! Can you believe it?! No dog in this family has EVER had any acknowledgment of their birthday...in fact, they don't even KNOW what day THEIR birthdays are!!! Have you ever heard of anything so sad?
My heart is dragging on the ground. It would be bad enough if my birthday were just passed as any other day of the year, but, I won't even get THAT. I'll be alone. Utterly alone and forgotten on my very first birthday. No Ninjas. No mean Spokespeople.
...and no one even seems to notice how dejected...forgotten...alone...I am feeling. They all keep smiling obliviously...and that is the worst part of it all.
