Virginia turns six today!

Today the birthday of J.R.R. Tolkien, creator of Dwarves and Elves and all of Middle-Earth, who was born this day in 1892. Everyone is invited to participate in The Tolkien Society's International Birthday Toast for 2008.

110 years after Tolkien was born, our bouncing baby Boston came into this world: The Shire's Virginia Lórien, a.k.a. Virginia, our very best friend, who was born this day in 2002. We love you, Sweetheart!

Here is the picture with which she won the title of Cutest Pet of 2007 at Lenoir-Rhyne College; they added the crown to the photo after she won, and then they hung it in the Student Center for the entire fall semester.

By the way, thanks to everyone who responded to my request for advice about her chapped ears. We're using Bag Balm on her ears and dressing her in a hoodie for her daily walks, and now her ears are in terrific shape once again! I appreciate all the helpful suggestions you gave us.
