Today is Thunder’s 11th birthday.  It is hard to believe he is 11 because he has not slowed down a bit.  He is still running hard.

On a recent trip to the park, he did not act like an 11 year old when he was retrieving a training bumper.

After we finished training, Thunder got his birthday party.  I bought him some fancy iced cookies.

After all that running, Thunder was excited to try his birthday treats.

Thunder Is Ready To Try The Treats

First I made Thunder pose with the birthday hat.  He was not too happy about that, but he was a good sport.

Finally the moment came to try the birthday cookie.  You can tell by the drool that it was a hit.

Since the cookie was large, Thunder shared it with Storm and Freighter.  He needed a little prompting to share, but in the end he was happy they got to try the yumminess.

After such a big day Thunder was all tired out.
