It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Hey Hey! It's my Birthday!

Hi Ya!
Denali here!

Did you know that this is a REALLY BIG day?
Yea, it's my 7th Birthday! Whoo hoo!

Happy Birthday to my sister, Terra, and my four brothers too!

We're all named for trucks and SUVs. But my name has multiple meanings. Besides being an awesome big SUV, my name is in honor of my Aunt Kenai too. She was born in Alaska and her name pays tribute to the Kenai Peninsula. My name is a tribute to her and comes from Denali National Park.

Thanks to my mom, Baha, and my dad, Trooper, I am a very spunky girl. If you doubt it just ask my little brother, Sage! He's my favorite playmate!

Kathy says there will be Big Meat for dinner. I asked for beef with a side of chicken wing! She and Moe think I am pretty special. They call me the Fluffy-tailed Goof and say that I am a lot like a Dr. Seuss character sometimes. I think that's a compliment. Anyway, you can read my Birthday Poem below!

A canine spoof,

This fluffy-tailed Goof,

Here one moment,

Then gone.. pouf!

They call her a corgi,

And that’s no yorkie,

Long and low,

A lot like a dorgie.

But jump you’ll see,

On those short legs that be,

Knock-kneed and so funny,

Not at all storky.

They said she was “busy,”

Her pants in a tizzy,

She moves so fast,

It’s positively fizzy!

An adorable puppy,

Already quite uppy,

First under the deck,

But on time for her suppy.

As a teen she would preen,

A fluffy coat so supreme,

But come time to play,

She's first on the team.

Commandeering the toys,

Is one of her joys,

Though Sage tries his hardest,

Denali rules all the boys.

Fluffy and stunning,

So often caught running,

Graceful is she,

And oh sooo cunning!

Smart as a whip,

Rally-o staunch in her grip,

In just five months an RE,

RAE next on her trip!

And now she is seven,

With experience she can leaven,

Queen of the Pack,

Now that Bart’s in Heaven.

Oh that Fluffy-Tailed Goof,

Not at all aloof,

The canine in charge,

Her personality’s proof.

So on her big day,

She’ll have her way,

Like anyone else,

Would have a say.

You’re the best, little pearl,

You’ve given us a whirl,

Here’s to you spunky Princess,

Happy Birthday sweet Girl!
