The Wild Birthday



Today is my birthday!

Today I’m the frigging queen of everything! (BTW don’t tell Veronica I said this, she thinks I’m a little full of myself and slightly self centered…can you believe that??)

I wonder what fun they have planned for me? Last year was great, what’s in store for today? Probably a cool playdate or something.


I’m quietly lying on my bed, minding my own business, waiting expectantly with a happy Birthday glow, when Dennis divulges the day’s plan:

“Felicia, your surprise is a mountain excursion to the snow”

The what excursion to where now? Snow? On my Birthday! They’ve got to be kidding? Is this some kind of joke?  Seriously guys, you know I’m NO SNOW FAN!!

Remember last year when…oh……I forgot…I did like it…kind of…a little.


Wow, now this is what you can call A LOT of snow! There’s nobody around, we’re all by ourselves.


I suddenly feel of an amazing happy energy. Woohooo, snow race for the Birthday girl!


I’m so fast! Super fast, as a matter of fact I could beat Indya, easy.


I even feel like going a little crazy. Let’s take a walk on the wild side. Deep in the snow! I’m one courageous Birthday Boxer girl! A true little daredevil!


I venture far away, this is the coolest thing ever. I had absolutely no idea snow could be this much fun.

That’s probably because I am five years old today, I’m all grown up now.


Dennis and I have our little “Fun with mittens”, I love that game.


The day is not over, we go to the lake in the Valley. Remember the lake? It’s partially frozen.

I have to say, we live in a beautiful country. Don’t you agree? I mean just look at that lake.


Veronica decides we should picnic outside by the shore, that’s so Swedish. Not sure Dennis appreciates it. (He wasn’t consulted on the matter).


As soon as we’re home I finally get my cake, and, unfortunately, the traditional speech. I thought I would escape it, what with the excursion and all. Oh no no no!

Veronica goes on about “Five years old”, “Time to grow up”, and more stuff I choose to ignore. (Seriously, nobody in their right mind gives a lecture on a Birthday!)


The cake is delicious, alas Veronica only allows me to eat part of it. “Not healthy to eat too much at a time”…

Hellooo, it’s my Birthday!! It’s the one day when unhealthy should be the motto!


My gifts are in this bag, from the special store, the one with the very nice lady.


Now what can this be?


A lovely red collar with small medals. Some special, healthy treats….(Trust Veronica for choosing the healthy, eco stuff.)


And of course a Toy!


A pink Flamingo. A bird? Again? Last year I got a Parrot. What’s with all the birds? Is this some trick to keep me from chasing the “Irritating Strutting Pigeon”?


To round up a perfect day, we all watch “Big Little Lies”. Veronica and I love that show, Dennis a bit less. (Perhaps it’s because there are so many strong minded women).

I feel content and happy! I’m one lucky Birthday Girl!

David E Kelley, a word; where are the dogs? “Big Little Lies” needs a dog. I can help you here. Off the top of my head, a beautiful, smart, elegant Boxer girl: Felicia von der Andreashöhe!
