I’m so pleased to have reached my seventh year of life. After having previously suffered three bouts with typically fatal Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA), I’m quite lucky to be here. Fortunately, my last hemolytic episode was in December 2009 and my health has never been better due to the holistic wellness plan my dad has created for me.
So, my seventh birthday was on June 15th and we decided to highjack my designing Uncle Cole’s barbecue for humans and make it into my festive ‘pawty’. My other dad got a special Sprinkles canine cupcake for me and some tasty non-canine cupcakes for the other party revelers.
It was such a fun way to ring in my ‘new year’. Considering how good I feel and that my IMHA is well managed, I hope to have lots of fun birthdays for many years to come.
Please feel free to communicate with me through my Cardiff’s Crunchies Facebook page.
