Birthday fun!

Isabelle at the Mac today to tell you about my awesome 13th birthday. 

Mom bundled me up and took me out to lunch and shopping for the day. 

First stop, Burger King for my very own burger!

It was delicious!

Then off to Carealot for some shopping. I got a new orthopedic bed that I picked out myself. The nice lady at Carealot put a bunch of beds on the floor and I sniffed them all, then picked out this one. 

Tallulah gives it the paw of approval. 

And I got two new outfits. 

And this one. Because every lady of a certain age needs an animal print house dress. 

Here I am ignoring the brand new bed I picked out. 
I'm stubborn like that, but you can relate, right?

Finally, I gave it a try. A lady likes her options. 

Yesterday, we mentioned that I share a birthday with my human great-grandma. When we saw her at Christmas, she surprised us with a new skill. At age 79, she decided to learn the violin. 
Here's a little video of her playing. 

She had only had four lessons when this was recorded. 
Just goes to prove that you are NEVER too old to learn something new. Great-grandma is pretty amazing anyway, but this just proves that 

PS. Isabelle passes her behavioral assessment so please keep voting for her!
