    Usually Zoey shares my birthday, but as we're busy this weekend we celebrated her birthday today instead when we had more free time - it's not as if we really know when her birthday is anyway :smile:

    I think Zoey was pleased to be celebrating her birthday a few days early...

     photo blanketsareout_zps8f9zjr3k.jpg

    Birthday celebrations started with a giant walk, pretty much the same one we did with Boo the other day - look Zoey, they hung bunting up for you!! :rolling:

     photo zobday_zpscxcuo8bt.jpg

    Already tired Zoey?!

     photo zobday1_zpshg0x4pkx.jpg

    I think she thought the bowl might have food in... :rofl:

     photo zobday2_zpsnkrbg8c9.jpg

    She's sooo much calmer around sheep than a certain other doofus dog :rolling:

    Well this view looks familiar...

    Zoey was excited to paddle

    And explore a new area

     photo zobday9_zpsvhdgf7wo.jpg

    Then paddle again :rolling:

     photo zobday10_zpsf23uguf2.jpg

    She got so filthy (you can see it better on the video) by wading through thick black mud, then decided to roll in the drier mud too!!

     photo zobday11_zpsaq56vssl.jpg

    Well done Zoey, you waded through thick black bog and then rolled in dusty mud!

    Serious Zoey

    Closer serious Zoey!

    And when we got back home it was present time! Her loot:

     photo zobday14_zps09t6pll2.jpg

    She has such fun unwrapping her gifts - she likes the paper more than the toys!! It's crazy to think she didn't unwrap her presents a few years ago and we had to do it for her :bigsmile:

    The giant Octopus...she had the mini version as a puppy, got the medium one last year and now has the large

     photo zobday17_zpsqmbmwl17.jpg

    Practicing her telekinetic powers :tooth:

    Octopuses can fly!!

    Helping me unwrap an early gift for me from Zoey!

    Trying a chocolate bone

     photo zobday20_zpshukncbjg.jpg

    And a sushi meaty treat

     photo zobday21_zpsojnmnut3.jpg

    She loved her lion, she pulled all the stuffing out within a few minutes :sarcastic:

     photo zobday23_zpscufkev78.jpg

    The octopus has suffered terribly

     photo zobday24_zps5dxrqh7e.jpg
    Zoey was VERY pleased with herself, her gifts and her walk :)

     photo zobday25_zps90au2e82.jpg

    Once she had torn the paper into tiny little shreds and emptied the lion of stuffing, she settled down to chew her gigantic antler

     photo zobday26_zpst1qspy2x.jpg

    Oh man she enjoyed that!

     photo zobday27_zpsrga0dqnz.jpg
    All around the living room :)

    Video from the walk including paddling, rolling, zoomies and a filthy dog :)

    And her enthusiasm for opening and playing with her toys :)

    After chewing her antler for a good 20 minutes it was, unfortunately, time to perform surgery on the octopus...

     photo zobday32_zpsb3hg3plo.jpg

    Oh dear...

     photo zobday33_zpsty8goeif.jpg

    Looking a little worse for wear now!

     photo zobday34_zps5w8dzdho.jpg

    I think a cloud has fallen and shattered in our living room! :tooth:

     photo zobday35_zpsmooufbnb.jpg

    There's definitely been some sort of explosion here...

     photo zobday36_zpsyblgg9cv.jpg

    One very happy three year old pup! :smile:

    She's laughing herself silly in the first pic...happy birthday (early) littlun.
    Did the mud dry and fall off or did you have to bath her?

    Thanks CC, she had such a great time she was smiling virtually non-stop! When she was at her grubbiest (when her legs were black and coated with sludge!) we encouraged her to go paddle in the water again and it cleaned her off pretty well. She didn't even need a rub down by the time we got back :smile:

    Kate she had a really fun time - hard to believe we ever had to help her unwrap her gifts!!

    She is a happy girl Lynn, but I think she smiled extra that day haha! Thanks Lynn - the octopus' head has been totally de-stuffed now but the legs are all still okay!

    Another awesome part to Zoey's birthday weekend was that on Saturday we hired the hall near us for an hour, and took Zoey so she got to meet and play with my dad too! She never gets to greet or play with people as she's so excited and lovey, most people don't like it, so it was great she got to play with my dad! Her favourite game was when my dad was lying on the floor (after being bowled over by Zoey!!); Zoey would have a toy in her mouth, run around his head then jump over his body using his stomach as a trampoline hahaha :rolling:

    I still owe Zoey birthday cookies. We've just been SO busy I haven't had time to bake them yet :face-plain:
