Happy Birthday Tika

SUMMARY: My Merle Girl is 12.

For a quick look at some earlier photos of Tika and a list of her achievements, see Tika's own web page.

And indulge me while I revisit some favorite photos from previous blog posts.
















































Teal tunnel photo by E. Maurer. Chair photo by D. Dobbs. Nosework photo by T. Jensen.  Other agility photos and the shoe photo by assorted other people. The rest are mine.

    1. Thanks! I had a list of about 30 more than *haven't* been in blogs that I was going to upload, but ran out of time this weekend when I was putting this together.

    1. Thanks! Yes, she loves snow! Guess I should make an effort to get her to some snow again this year before it's too late.

  4. Happy Birthday to Tika. Surely there will be cake?

    1. Tonight is agility class, so you'd think there should be cake. Except 2 weeks ago for Boost's and my birthday, I took cake, and only 2 people had tiny amounts; everyone else on carb-free or low-cal or gluten-free diets or whatever. So I'm thinking maybe guacamole or something. Don't have time to make any, though.

  5. Now that is a beautiful collection of photos... what a walk down memory lane. Loved it!

    How old was Tika in the photo of her flopped out on a chair? She looks so young there.

    And yes, Happy Birthday Tika!

    1. The chair photo was her first year at Power Paws Camp, and she has just barely earned the required legs at whatever level Power Paws required, so we'd been competing maybe a year, which makes this probably 2004. Oh, found it-- May 2003, so she was just over 2!

      Too bad I can't attach images to comments here; I have a photo of boost curled up in a chair from just last year, but she doesn't look nearly as relaxed/wiped out as Tika does.

    2. Awwwww, itty bitty two-year-old Tika! Such a puppy face she had even at two years old...
