Happy Birthday Libby!

We celebrated Perlman's Lady Liberty (her AKC name) ... otherwise known as Libby's 7th birthday today. We got her a few weeks after 9/11, and as Matt was working in New York City at the time, we wanted a name that was patriotic. My girlfriend Kelly came up with the name Liberty - and we shortened it to Libby.

We took Libby to lunch at the Park Bench Cafe, an outdoor restaurant in Huntington Beach that caters to both people and dogs. In fact, you can even order treats for your dog off the menu! We met up with several family members who also have dogs, and had ourselves a little party.

Here are a few shots from Libby's special day.

Happy Birtday--too cute. Today's Jacob's birthday. Our dog has been at my parents since we went on vacation. We all can't wait to get her back tomorrow--especially since my parent keep asking if we really have to/want to take her back. YES, we do, we all miss her. Maybe next April we'll have a party with her. Very cute idea.

Happy belated B -Day to Libby. She's beautiful. Florida now allows pets at certain restaurants in the outdoor dining sections. It's been very popular.

Oh my, I love the name, Liberty.
Wish I'd have thought of it.
My girl is a firecracker, but it's just not the same patriotic-wise.

(Great photos)
