Havi's 2nd Birthday!

When we first got Havi, all the doctors and foster peeps had a different opinion on how old she was.  We took an average of everyone's ideas, and that landed us in September.  Everyone in my family was born on a 7, and DS was born on the 20th.  So, Havi's birthday became September 27, 2009.  Little did Havi know, in the Grad Student household we do birthdays in a BIG way!

The day started with the signs at 12:00am.  Everyone in my family gets a sign on their 1st birthday, that gets custom made and is hung up for one full month.  DS surprised Havi with some of her own!
Then, she woke up to EXTRA belly rubs.
Later, DS took her to PETCO where she engaged in a careful toy selection process...
 Her day ended with a playdate with her BFF Jax, the ferocious goldendoodle!

P.S. Sorry about the poor picture quality.

P.P.S.  Here is a photo of Cooper Bob, Havi's first cousin once removed!  DS and I spent one night of Rosh Hashana with this cutie!

Stayed tuned for this week's double Weekly Feature: Love Letters From A Dogwalker, Monthly Feature: Big Dog, Small Budget, and an update on my challenge to read 36 books in one year!
Happy 2nd birthday Havi, so happy we are able to share it with you!!
