As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about…..more moments with Wrigley! Nine years ago, Chuck and I decided that our little family of four was not quite complete. Some people might have considered another baby as a welcome addition, but the minute we locked eyes with Wrigley, we fell head over heels in love. Okay, that’s not exactly true. I cried every day for the first 6 months. He was a total nightmare! Even now, after nine years, this guy is still full of vim and vigor. If his grey snout didn’t give him away, he could easily be mistaken for a two year old puppy!
Despite the destruction he continues to leave in his wake, we adore Wrigley. He is the very best, worst dog ever! Earlier this week I headed over to Walmart to pick up some items to make him a little Doggie Gift Basket for his birthday. I filled my cart with Milk-Bone®, Pup-Peroni® and Milo’s Kitchen® treats and indestructible toys (though Wrigley’s never met a toy he didn’t try to dissect).
Wrigley had a great birthday. I bundled up and we started our day with a run. I mean, really, how many 9 year old dogs are still good for 4 miles? He was happy as a clam as we let him out and let him in, let him out and let him in. Amanda, Wrigley and I lounged around in the basement and watched a movie, where Wrigley got super comfortable and had a great nap. However, the best part of the night was when he received his treats from Walmart.
I filled a basket with his Milk-Bone®, Pup-Peroni® and Milo’s Kitchen® treats and the tough-enough-for-Wrigley toys. He was so excited when I placed the gift basket on the floor and let him have at it. He hardly knew what to grab first!
In the end, he decided on the squeaky duck. Unlike his siblings, there was no way Wrigley was going to actually sit still for a picture! In fact, once he started to attempt to tear open the bags of treats for himself, I had to put them up on the counter. He would have eaten every last one!
He always sits like a good boy for a treat.
Wrigley had a fantastic birthday! He loved his Doggie Gift Basket and we were thrilled because our sweetest baby was so happy.
