We've been celebrating Rita's b-day all week, culminating with today's donation-fest. It's what my friends and I always call a "Hanukkah Birthday." (What would be really great would be a "Ramadan Birthday"!) Hmmm. Just remembered Hanukkah is 8 days, and we're only celebrating Rita for 7 days. Guess this is technically her "Hanukkah -1 Birthday."
On her actual bday, we went to the beach:
As a hopefully-interesting aside... the news said these little crab thingies were blanketing the beach one day last week. Luckily by the time we got there, it was just the after-math. Not sure what Rita would have done with thousands of them!

On Friday, she got her brand-new PrideBites frisbee with her face on it! (Long story behind this...)
|Looks worried that maybe I think the toy is cuter than her. (Never!!)|

Sunday we tried to give her a Frosty Paw - but she turned it down!! (WtH??) She got a pizzle instead, but I forgot to take pics of any of that.
Monday, she got a Rachel Ray "soup bone" treat. It was reduced to a few teensy crumbs in mere minutes, so she must have liked it!
Tuesday, she got another PrideBites toy - a skull and crossbones, that matches her leash!
|I think so far she had more fun opening it than playing with it...|
And Wednesday, today, we'll celebrate with this post and the donation for the comments!
Thanks for helping us celebrate, and for helping out BAS and Rita's fellow Mexican rescue buddies!
* We don't really know when her b-day is since she's a rescue, but BAS estimated she was born in June so we picked the 16th for her special day.
** To a max of $250. I don't REALLY expect to get over 250 comments - probably the most I've ever gotten is in the 30's - but figured I should set a max just in case... And I should probably put a time limit on this, so it will include every person who comments through the end of the day July 4th.
