Aunt Bertha Day!
Today is or was Aunt Bertha's birthday, so be extra kind to your critters today, and slip them a bit of treat, as she always did! She was my Great Aunt, and born in 1905. When she was young, her strict Episcopalian family never had a birthday party for her if her birthday fell during Lent, so years like this were big birthdays for her!
I am sure she got quite a welcome at the Rainbow Bridge when she died, as she loved and spoiled many dogs over her lifetime, from Lorna Doone the Scottie when she wa a young woman, to Brownie, Togie the yellow Lab-colored Beagle mix, and Peppy the Beagle as well as Fluffy, a giant yellow fluffy likely Maine Coon mix, also known as the cat who stomped - unlike normal kitties he was so big you could hear his footfalls when he walked across the floor!
A toast to your wonderful aunt! I'll give Spook and Torias extra love today in her honor. (as if I don't spoil them already :rolleyes: :D)
I'll join in the toast to your wonderful aunt, Mayor Karen!
