In lieu of a birthday party, Taylor said he wanted to go hiking so I handed him the keys and he and Aki met their little friends at Shawnee Mission Park. (They must have asked a squirrel to snap these group photos, right Joni?)
Then Taylor used the mind control he's been honing over the last 9 years to trick Bryan into delivering some fresh, smoked bones from Fritz's. Taylor even got some respect from the cat today. All in all, I'd say about the best birthday a dog could have!
