Happy Birthday to me!
I said: “Happy Birthday To MEEEEEE!
There. I feel a lot better now.
today is yesterday was the date mom picked to be my birthday. Now, mom figures I turned 3 sometime back in the winter but because I was born in the USA she thought it was fitting that July 4 be my birthday. Kinda like in England where they celebrate the Monarch’s birthday in June, regardless of the real day they were born?
So I’m Three Years old now! Oy, am I ever getting old :-(
Mom says I still have a lot of puppy in me (I keep telling her I’m a BOY and can’t have puppies in me but she just shakes her head and laughs). She says that because I’ll wake her up at 2 a.m. to either go potty or to play. Lately it’s been more to play than potty. I just love playing with my mom. Sometimes I go get the toy she’s tossed, other times I make her go get it - well, SHE threw it way over there, she should have to go get it. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
After her work mom took me outside to potty and took some pictures of yours truly. Unbeknownst to me mom also took some video. Never mind the shaky camera - the mosquitos are really bad this year thanks to a very wet and late spring. Good thing mom has ‘bug dope’ left over from when she lived in Alberta cause they attacked her and she had to spray herself down to stop ‘em. A few got me too but mom gave me a chicken wiener treat and the itchiness magically disappeared (*coughbenadrylecough*) I’m tellin’ ya - chicken wiener treats are MAGIC!
Tonight I get special peanut butter cookies in my supper, which in itself is a treat! Mom bought me “President’s Choice brand Gourmet Dinner with turkey in savoury juices” as my birthday supper - now, before everyone goes all wonky over that, keep in mind she mixes it in with half my regular (healthy) kibble and it’s ONE DAY A YEAR: MY BIRTHDAY! So conveniently forgetting Miss Eleni’s instructions for one day isn’t the worst thing in the world. Mom has medicine (Bleech!) if I need it, but hoping I won’t ‘cause ( you guessed it) Chicken Wieners work better!
Then we’re going for a nice long Let’s Go! As it’s a beautiful, warm summer evening and except for the mosquitos, I hope to visit all my doggy friends along the way and read my peemail.
Yup. Life is rough, ain’t it?
Token video ... wait for it - he wants to kiss you!
Aww, lookit that, everyone gets a ConorKiss on his B'day *slurpslurp*
Mom's note: Innernets troubles - post was saved yesterday but couldn't post. Conor was spoiled rotten - he had a peanut butter and chicken muffin, with peanut butter as icing. No wonder he was batting around something (bracelet or something like that I think) on the floor in the bedroom at 2 a.m.!!
