Adventures of Sheldon: My Birthday Birthday Card

For my birthday, my mom sent me one of those Hallmark cards that plays music when you open it. The front of the card has a theatre with an opera singer on stage. The sentiment of the card says: "It's Your Birthday" (then continues to the inside) "Make a Big Production of It" (She knows me all too well). The music that plays is "The Ride of the Valkyries, by composer Richard Wagner so it is a big, bold, dramatic tune. When I first opened the card I didn't realize it played music and it startled me at first. Much to my surprise, it startled young Sheldon even more than me. The first time he heard the card, his head whipped around toward the sound. He stared at the card, perked his ears up and tilted his head in curiosity. So of course, I made a game of it and kept opening and closing the musical card to watch his reaction to the card. Being the smart poodle that he is, he now has fun reacting to the card. So today I caught his reaction on video, I hope you enjoy this "Adventures of Sheldon" mini episode:

Oh and Happy Birthday to me...today is my 40th! Unfortunately, neither Sheldon, Koshimi or Owen can have any cake, but they will get a treat of their own instead!

Ha! I think it's so funny when dog's go nuts over the smallest things: an oscillating fan, a laser pointer, now a musical birthday card. Sheldon looks so adorable.

Oh, and BTW...Happy Birthday!
