The Happy Birthday Girl

A very happy birthday to the Beach Boy/Summertime litter starring Kady with supporting cast (in birth order) Hiro, Rip, Archer, Opal, Abby, Summer, Rosie, and Louie.  


With Momma Hannah the morning they were born.

Little did I know on this day four years ago that it was going to be the last C-Myste Cardigan litter born in this house.  It’s bittersweet, but big life changes are coming.

She watches over me carefully.

 The last year has been a difficult one, and it has made a dramatic change in our relationship.  After surgery last June, I assumed that the bouncy high-flying Kady would be the one who needed to be locked out of the bedroom.  Instead, she flipped an internal switch and became the most gentle, nurturing “nurse”.   She now hates to let me out of her sight, having decided that bad things happen when I go places without her.

And as for the big changes coming?


And she’ll be doing much more of this soon.
