Kelsey was adopted one year ago on February 5, 2010 (easy to remember 2/5/10). We will be celebrating it as her first birthday. She is practicing wearing her hat so she will be ready for her party this weekend. She went with an adorable pink and green monkey theme since her nickname is "monkey."
I ordered her a doggie birthday cake so she can celebrate in style. Her puppy friends and their parents are more than welcome to stop by for a piece of cake. She is going to be so excited. She loves food and she was great at unwrapping presents at Christmas, so I know she will have a blast.
Kelsey went three rounds in the Bissel MVP pet photo contest. As of now, we are done with it. I started noticing that it was no longer counting my votes. I could actually log back in and vote again sometimes and it still wouldn't get counted. Other people were having issues with their votes too. After this, the contest conveniently stopped showing the vote counter. If they cannot run the contest properly and fairly, we will just have to look for a different photo contest since she is so cute and absolutely loves having her picture taken. Besides, many of the winners were blind cats. That makes for a great story, but it would not attract me to a vacuum cleaner box (they need cute animals on the boxes). I am bummed that we won't be winning the money for our pet charity. We were going to give the donation to the shelter where both Kelsey and Simon were adopted.
