The 18th rolled in on my side of the world - and that means it's the one and only @Linkachu's birthday! ^^
And since the Linkachu in question is very fond of dogs and is also quite fond of Silvally... I suddenly had the clear mental image of the thing doing the goofy dog thing and chasing a squirrel (or rather a Pachirisu) with its owner/trainer/whatever holding on to the leash for dear life - and I had the feeling she'd also get a kick out of it.
So yeah, happy birthday, Katie ♥ Have a good one~
