Elsie Pie, you are TEN years old today🎊🎉🎊 💚🎀💚
Auntie Teresa is so happy to hear it and wishes she could be right there with you, Meg and Mom to prepare a wonderful menu for you 🍗🍖🌭🍔🍦🎂🍭
I suspect strongly Mom did it too 😉👩🏼🍳 and in any case you wouldn’t waste such a wonderful opportunity to press her for as many goodies as you can gulp down 😝 would you?
I am SO in love with you Elsie Pie, you were the cutiest little puppy ever existed and now you are SO beautiful with that charming white hair around your eyes and sweet nose 💓
Me and Angel Eurydice are sending you a tornado of ear scratches and tummy rubs and also kisses and hugs to your beautiful Mommy and your naughty sister Meg 😘😘😘😘😘🌹💫✨🌟🐮

ONLY The Pie could get the Roo off her lazy bunny butt to say: Oh gee willikers and gee whiskers and ,well, WE LOVE YOU ELSIE! Although we have been away at Da Bear HQ, Elsie and Da MegaStar are always on our (very ornery and highly wascally) minds and hearts. Elsie, you are sooooooooooooooooo loved. You remind me very much of one of the all time very best dogs in literature: Cannonball Simp. Or a circus dog. Or a vaudeville dog. Or, simply, a dog for all time. ELSIE: WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are just beautiful and a dog of the highest quality. Now go steal Meg’s pig ear. Meg will forgive you. Over and out from Da Bear HQ (EmmaRose DaBear is almost 16 Elsie so you have a ways to go with your Mum! And CharlieBear DaBear is almost 12…Long Live Da MegaStar and Da ElsiePie! )

Happy (belated) Birthday Elsie Pie!
You have always been one of my favorites here even if you do have that funny fourth leg
One of the coolest thing about having black dogs is watching the faces change over the years. All the white (grey?) makes taking pictures of the faces easier too.
