Greetings, quivering civilians! I, Saya the Mighty, thought you all might like to know that today is my birthday. I am one year old now. I am expecting to get a real driver’s license soon, to replace this “proof” one. Then I will be able to take my katana in for sharpening any time it needs it, and chase down vampires and other evil perpetrators in my own vehicle. Or maybe Dada’s vehicle. See if I don’t!
I’m told being a year old means I have to turn in my Puppy Card, although Mama and Dada say I maxed out my Puppy Card months ago. I’m not sure what a Puppy Card is. I think it might be like a credit card, but if I maxed it out, I think I should have more loot around here that I bought with it. I bet Dennis took my Puppy Card and spent it on things for himself, like nose wax and hair butter and paw gel. And maybe also toothpaste.
Here is a picture of me when I was very very very very very small. I didn’t even have a katana then, but I, Saya the Mighty, totally rocked my yellow collar.
Of course, vampire hunting is serious work. I had to rest up, get big, and learn from the best before I could take over the job of protecting the house from creatures of the night.
And look at what happened! Now I, Saya the Mighty, am a Big Dog.
I love my brother Dennis. Sometimes a little too much, but sometimes just the right amount. And I love my Mama and Dada, too. Also sometimes too much.
Dennis tells me that he was once one year old, too, and that he used to run circles around the older dogs. I told him, “Video or it didn’t happen, Dennis!” So he showed me video. But I still don’t believe him.
I can see that my sister The Beautiful Trixie is in that video, and an older vizsla who may be my legendary brother Tucker, but I don’t know who that young vizsla is. He can’t be Dennis, because he’s wearing a yellow neckerchief, and everyone knows yellow is my color. Anyway, if Dennis is telling the truth about having once been young, then that means someday I might be old, and some young whippersnapper dog might think he or she can run circles around me. AND I, SAYA THE MIGHTY WILL NEVER LET THAT HAPPEN. See if I do!
So in closing, let me wish a happy first birthday to me, Saya the Mighty, from me, Saya the Mighty.
Saya the Mighty out!
