Birthday Post From Ziggy

Hi, I'm Ziggy!  In case you had not heard, today is my BIRTHDAY! I am now three years old.  You can tell I'm all grown up now because I was able to sit still for this picture without destuffing the Ziggy toy next to me.  My foster mom was very proud of me and gave me lots of good treats for this.

Thanks Leanna!
Since my foster mom forgot my birthday the past two years, this was the first year I have had any help celebrating my birthday.  It has been amazing!  First, my friend Leanna and my foster mom gave me a surprise party on Saturday. They invited all my friends from All Paws Rescue, and when I walked into PetSmart, thinking it was just another regular adoption event, everyone in the store… I mean all my friends… I mean a few crazy All Paws people started singing Happy Birthday! Then Angie, one of my All Paws friends, gave me some chew bones to take home with me, and  my friend Leanna showed up and she brought me my very own iced tea (since I drank her dad’s iced tea when I went for a visit) and my very own Monster bone.

I immediately went into my crate and waited for Leanna to give me my bone. I was SO excited!

I wonder how fast I can eat this?
 I proceeded to enjoy my monster bone for the next 23 minutes and 54 seconds.

So good!
 It was the best 23 minutes and 54 seconds of my life!

In addition to the fun party with singing and presents, I had another great surprise this week. Several Facebook friends shared me on their wall and asked people to come visit me, so by the end of the week I had over 100 new friends! This not only means my foster mom owes me another chew bone (I get a new bone every time I get another 100 friends!) but it also means there are a lot of new people out there reading about me and helping me to find my forever home!

Also for my birthday, my friend Shuma made a video of me! It shows a lot of the fun things I’ve done in my life, like eating bananas, and wearing silly hats, and doing agility. I had my foster mom put it on my web page right away so everyone could see how much fun it would be to adopt me! Thank you Shuma for this great present, and for giving me treats every time you see me!

Thank you very much to all of you for supporting me, a deaf homeless pit bull, and helping to make this birthday the best one EVER.
