Rita is not a super smiley dog. Mostly she just sits with her mouth shut and observes, so when she looks smiley I love it!
Monday was Rita's 3rd birthday so to celebrate we went to the In-N-Out drive-thru and got her a Flying Dutchman. This made Rita HAPPY.
If you don't live in an area with an In N Out Burger, well, that's a bummer. They have a very basic menu of yummy burgers, and a famous "secret" menu that you can easily find online. One of the "secret" items is the Flying Dutchman for dogs - 2 beef patties and 2 slices of cheese.
I know - totally decadent. But it's only twice a year. (Gotcha Day in January and Birthday in June.)
Here's another shot of the whole familial unit at the drive-thru:
And a few shots of her back home enjoying her extra-special treat:
It was a GOOD birthday! If you didn't already enter our giveaway celebrating Rita's big day, you can enter here.
In Other Wee News...
I was on author Barbara Barth's "Writer with Dogs" blog the other day. Stop by if you have a minute and you can read about my cover models. (If you don't already know, they're total dogs!)
And... Thursday we go to the San Diego Fair to see if our felted dogs won anything!! Fingers and paws crossed!
