Dapple The Birthday Girl Turns 18

The warmest of birthday wishes goes out to a pretty little girl named 'Dapple' who hails from Fort Mill, South Carolina - she turned an incredible 18 yesterday!  She celebrated with a special birthday cake.  Excerpt from the Herald Online:

There was an 18th birthday with cake and candles and balloons in Fort Mill on Monday – but the hairy teenager was not at Fort Mill High School.
This birthday was celebrated with party hats, but the teen was on all fours. She licked the frosting from the tiny birthday cake, with two candles – in the shape of a “1” and an “8” – right there next to the cake.
“I have the birth certificate to prove it,” said Dappie’s owner, “Rockin’” Randy Mahaffey, a former professional wrestler with a party hat on his big head.
The proof is an American Kennel Club certificate that shows that this tiny wiener dog really did turn 18 on Monday. May 6, 1995, was the date of birth. Read more and see a video at the Herald Online.  Thanks to our handsome friend from L.A., 'Pee Wee,' for sending this in!

My baby girl turned 17 on March 6th. So now she's working her way to her 18th birthday, too. So far, she's in remarkably good shape : Minimal cataracts, no apparent loss of sight or of hearing,thick glossy fur even if it does have lost of gray and white in it, still pretty bouncy and exuberant even if she does spend long periods of time curled up asleep. I hope her good condition lasts, and if it does not, that I'll have the strength to do what I have to do.

The vintage wieners are very fine. And so are their people! Thanks for posting this heartwarming story. That big man loves his little dog. :-)

Happy belated birthday, Dapple! Many happy returns of the day!

My sister's family used to have a doxie rescued one summer by my nephew. I think Shorty was originally a red smooth, but by the time he was 20 he was completely gray.
