We celebrated Izzy’s 9th birthday today with friends and their greyhounds (other breeds invited, but couldn’t make it). Unfortunately, unlike last year, the weather didn’t cooperate. The local cafe manager was able to accommodate us at the back of the cafe in a tented temporary area, rather than outside on the deck since it was raining steadily.
This year, I opted for cupcakes (liver) and with special greyhound decorations that looked like Izzy – purchased from Amazon.com.
A good time was had by all, including the few diehards which went on a beach walk despite the bad weather. It is summer here and the temps were fairly warm – but it was wet!
