My Birthday!

Hello to all of my furends!
I have to tell you that February 2 is not only GROUNDHOG DAY


It is my very own BIRTHDAY!!!

The funny thing is that Mimi knew I was born in February but she had forgotten the exact day.  (How could she?)

Then Eric told her that it is TOMORROW!

She looked it up in my vaccination/vet records and Eric was right. My Birthday is tomorrow!!


My February BARK BOX arrived in the mail today and I get to open it tomorrow, fur a birthday present!


Back to the groundhog part of it. My birthday is on Groundhog Day, which is a special day fur predicting whether or not winter is finally over. The tradition is that every year on my birthday the groundhog comes out of his burrow. If it is sunny and he can see his own shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter. But if it is cloudy and the groundhog can't see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

Here I am, celebrating my birthday with a friendly groundhog:

If you like, you can read all about Groundhog Day on Wikipedia.

From Vancouver,
Louis Dog Armstrong
