Happy Birthday to Suki!

Birthdays, Suki, Timelapse, Video

Yesterday when I posted the Photo of the Day: Portrait of a Dog, it didn't dawn on me that the following day, today, would be Suki's 7th birthday. Before I continue, its also my nephew Keane's 23rd birthday, but I assume my sister will have more to say about that, but nonetheless, happy birthday Keane!.

Since moving to New York a year and half ago, Suki has enjoyed going to the park many times per week, visiting the Chiangs in nearby Rockland County and living in a much smaller, more surveyable apartment with no stairs.

We live a block from Madison Square Park in New York's Flatiron District. Going to the park is one of Suki's favorite pastimes, and although she's not a fan of meeting other dogs, she does like meeting people, and there are many people that seem pleased to meet her.

We are also at the two year anniversary of a less auspicious event, the debilitating spinal cord injury that nearly took her life and left her paralyzed for over a month. Today she is doing amazingly well, having regained her mobility and never losing her spirit. Lately Suki has been going to water therapy to continue to rehabilitate her weaker leg, and she seems to enjoy the pool, the exercise and of course the attention of all the staff.

Suki doesn't have big plans for her birthday. She'll likely be given a few Greenies and a new toy that squeaks incessantly, but mostly spending the day doing what she loves the most: napping.

Leave a note and birthday greeting for Suki below, and we'll be sure to pass it along once she wakes up...
