Then Mike gave him a new blue-dog toy. These are very special to Rupert, for each leg contains a plastic bottle-like structure which can squeak, if he grabs it just right.
He loves to do so! His method is to chew on the legs, one at a time, until he removes the leg from the body. The next step, of course, is to remove the plastic squeaky from the material of the leg. There are times when he makes the "dog" squeak so rapidly that Rupert will lift his head up and howl! (If you ever happen to park near us, and hear a howl--you will
Rupert and Mike played Rupert's favorite game: soccer. If you were to ask Rupert where his favorite place is, his answer would be Valley Camp. With lots of grass, which is not pokey (after all, he is quite particular where he puts his tender feet!), Valley Camp gives a four-legged friend LOTS to like! So what better place to celebrate his ninth birthday than at Valley Camp!
Mike made a cake for us humans, to have along with Rupert's Birthday Pie.
