It’s Reina’s birthday today! She is five years old! Here is what she looked like when she first became a part of our pack!
Right off the bat, she reminded us how to embrace winter.
She learned how to be a member of the pack from the best- Riley and MayMay.
At work she has always taken a hands on approach to every task.
She has always been game for hamming it up.
Sometimes quite literally.
When she comes calling, she always brings Flowers.
Flowers are also her favorite accessory.
During her lunch break, she knows how to relax
and then relax more deeply.
She never says no to a nap
or a passing snuzzle.
She knows how to entertain herself on the weekends and is very well informed especially about Hollywood gossip.
She keeps an open mind about most things including her main person’s strange fascination with the Camino.
She remains unconvinced about the necessity of ever walking across a hot dry country let alone walking across this country three times,
but she is happy to be at the end of Lizzy’s dusty journeys.
She loves a good outdoor lecture. I mean, who doesn’t?
She is patient when we treat her like a baby still.
She even plays her part in events like Lizzy and Miguel’s wedding. Only Reina could rock this hat with dignity intact.
She welcomed Miguel and then Grace to her pack with enthusiasm and always sends cards to those in her pack who are off in the world.
There is nothing she likes MORE than taking the wheel for a drive around town.
And there is nothing she likes LESS than a mouth full of quills!
Happy Birthday Reina! We love you!
