Wow wee did I ever have a great birthday yesterday. It started off with Mom giving me a special birthday blueberry/milkbone muffin (Mom had to find a treat for me that was really soft as I still have stitches in my mouth - even the milkbone was soft!) Needless to say even though I don't have any back teeth anymore I was still able to gobble in two whole bites :)
After enjoying my muffin Mom said the magic word "WALKIES" and we all got in MY car and headed off to the beach. We were way early though and my normal beach park wasn't open yet (can you believe on weekends they don't open until 7.00 am) so we went on the Mayport Navy Base and headed off for a walk on their private beach - it was so cool. I am now calling it the Mayport Cowspotdog Navy Base - cause I peed there so now it is mine :)
It was also extra cool yesterday as the USS New York was returning after a 14 month deployment. And for those that don't know - the USS New York is a very special ship as it has part of the Twin Towers metal built into it. Mom says there was 600 very happy sailors and their families yesterday.
Mom was being a bit silly and wrote a birthday wish in the sand for me. We had a whole hour of walking along the beach and look what else we found - turtle nests! They fence them off so people don't accidentally dig them up. We counted 8 nests along this stretch of beach. We also went to two other parks but we will save those pics for another day.
