Isadora Is Three

My sweet and loony girl Isadora celebrated her third birthday this past Thursday.

Here are a few shots from the past year ...

She was still hiding a lot as her 3rd year began

But curiosity did draw her out more and more

She got cozier and cozier

Siren was still not so pleased

Isadora learns to speak up for herself

Sometimes she even starts the trouble

One of my favorite things about Iza is how she thinks we can't see her if she can't see us

Cuddling is still in the future but Siren and Isadora will calmly share the same space

Siren will even turn his back or maybe he's just saying kiss my butt

Earlier this year Isadora had surgery to remove all her teeth from the canines on back
This was in response to an autoimmune disease that created severe gum inflammation
I'm so pleased that she's healthy and happy

A lot of people celebrate the gotcha day of their adopted family members but I prefer to calculate when they were probably born and then chose a date that has some meaning
I chose August 4 for Isadora because it is the President's birthday

LOVE that first shot, Dianne!

And also love how you calculate the birthdate - brilliant!

X to you and the gang!

Isadora sure is lucky she adopted you! I'm glad Siren is getting used to Isa being out and about.

Isadora is a beauty. I hope she and Siren become friends, or at least strike a truce. Being in the same place at the same time is certainly a start.
I like your phrase "gotcha date" because that's what we celebrate with our rescue dog, Lindy. The day we got her was a very important day in our lives and, we like to think, in hers.

I really enjoyed these pictures of Isadora. Happy birthday to her! What a sweet, pretty girl!

So nice to hear that your newest edition is finally becoming more comfortable. Aching gums & teeth can really change a pet's personality. Glad the surgery helped.
