On Monday we celebrated Scout’s third birthday! It feels like just yesterday we were picking her up as a 14 week old puppy. My how the time flies!
One of Scout’s most favorite things in the word is ice cream. That is one of the foods she begs for the most if it’s on the table. Luckily, I discovered puppy ice cream last year. What better way to celebrate her birthday than with one of her favorite things. I think she was happy 🙂 (and don’t worry, Hank got some, too!)
Aside from ice cream, Scout also loves chewing on bones.
But chewing bones can be very tiring….
She loves to use her nose to sniff things out, especially on a long walk or during Search & Rescue training.
But all of that sniffing is very tiring….
Running around in the yard, hanging out with Hank, and helping him guard the house is another favorite pastime.
But guess what? That just wears her out, too…
Getting to travel somewhere is always very exciting and Scout often things she can drive the truck.
But traveling will just wear a dog out….
Even just watching other people workout can wear you out.
Basically, life as a dog is just exhausting….
Luckily she was able to muster enough energy for a solo walk last night, just me and her, to celebrate her third birthday!
Scout loves to be with Hank, and gets very upset if he goes somewhere and she gets left behind. But as much as she loves to be with him, they have very different walking styles. He likes to walk very slowly and sniff everything. Scout enjoys walking at a quicker pace as she ‘speed sniffs’ her way through. Occasionally, she stops to sniff something, but mostly she just likes to power through with her nose to the ground. It was a special treat for her to get to go for a walk by herself.
If you have pets, what are some of their favorite things?

Sounds very much like my cat. It’s exhausting work!
Such exhausting lives they lead 🙂
So cute that you took her on a walk for her birthday! I can’t believe she’s three. Really, I think you overwork her. She sleeps an awful lot. Clearly her life is just TOO MUCH. LOL!
I guess we need to go easier on her! Let her sleep 22 hours a day instead of 21. 😉
How cool that Scout is such a good “speed snifter!” Happy very belated birthday to Scout; although I think I wished her a happy birthday on IG or FB. 🙂
