Wilbur is 11 today! Although considered “geriatric” in dog years, he still feels a lot like a puppy. Shiba Inu life expectancy is 12-15 years, but lucky Wilbs hasn’t really had any health problems yet and I’ve heard of shibas sticking around much longer.
To celebrate, we made this goofy video of his only trick and I gave him two shrimps from the stir fry at dinner. Livin’ large!
Wilbur’s b-day also seemed like a good time to pass along info for a friend: If you’re an animal lover, my friend Caeli is hosting a Perfectly POSH fundraiser for Animal Lifeline of Iowa. She’s donating 100% of the proceeds from her sales through March 29 to the no-kill shelter.
My skin is super dry after spending the past few days in a hotel at a conference, so I’m excited to try a few samples from the affordable, cruelty-free and vegan-friendly line. Time to admit I’m getting old alongside my dog and start taking care of my skin!
P.S. Totally unrelated, but I’ll be at the Art Center tomorrow (Saturday) at 2 p.m. doing a live reading for an exhibit they have going. If you’re looking for something to do, come check it out!
