Today was kind of a strange day. When Mom took Jamie to school, she locked me in my crate instead of taking me for the ride with her! She said it was to protect us both.
Later, Laurel came over to sit with me and Jamie while Mom, Erik, and Jenny went out for a while. When everyone came home, including Dad, that’s when all the noise started. I guess it was Erik’s birthday today, and the humans had a little party, which I was not used to!
First, they played games around the kitchen table and laughed a lot. Then, they ordered good-smelling food in flat boxes that a strange man brought to the front door. After that, they had a nice-looking cake that they started on fire, and then they tore up a lot of paper. They played some noisy music, and danced and sang, which scared and confused me. The whole thing was loud and distracting. I didn’t know what to do since I had never seen them acting this way.
After a while, everybody left and it was time for bed. My people were still smiling. I think the party made the humans happy.
