Cricket is Ten Years Old!

We missed celebrating Cricket’s big birthday recently, because Miss Butterfly has been having health issues that are distracting all of us. She was in the hospital for almost five days, but I will tell you more about that next week. Cricket has been too anxious to celebrate up until today (though a chicken treat has never gone uneaten). Now that Butterfly is home, it’s time for all of us to focus on Miss Cricket’s big milestone birthday.

And then realizing that sisters aren’t such a bad thing.

Her adventures continued, despite the entrance of the interloper.

She learned how to chew and weed at the same time!

And then she saved the world (and her sister) from the red balloon!

And then she taught her sister the art of napping (and watching your people at the same time).

We love you Cricket, and we hope your wonderful adventures will continue for many years to come. Happy birthday!
