Denali's First Birthday

It's Denali's first birthday! She got to help mommy and daddy re-pot house plants on the back deck. Then she took a ride to the Canine Cafe (,) where she took over the duties of "Welcoming Committee." She wasn't too happy wearing the birthday hat, but it was just too cute!!!

She had lots of choices for her birthday cake...

She had so much fun at the Canine Cafe, she needed a nap on the way home.
Then, later in the evening, she was able to partake of her Peanut Butter and Banana Birthday Cake. She had a very good day!
Happy Birthday, Denali!!!

Denali's First Beach Trip...

Her first trip to the beach...

This past weekend, we headed to Doug's dad's place in Charleston. Just a quick 30 minute drive to the beach from his house.

As we were crossing the bridge onto Sullivan's Island, there was a flashing sign that read something about a leash law and that dogs were only allowed on the beach between 6:00 pm to 10:00 am. There was something else, but we passed the sign too fast to see what it was.

But the policeman in the golf cart informed me what it was... Denali didn't have her "Dog Beach Tag" and he was required to write me a ticket for $10d00 for not reading the rules before we entered the beach with the dog! $1000! Then, as he explained the "Dog Tag" policy to me, he also said that City Hall was only open on Monday through Friday and I wouldn't be able to get a tag on Saturday anyway. So she would be allowed to stay on the beach until 10:00 am. Other than that, I should take her up to Isle of Palms where they don't require "Dog Tags."
