My 9th Birthday!!!
there! Welcome to my 9th Birthday celebration!
though today (Monday the 21st) is my birthday, I've actually been
celebrating it all weekend!
Here are some
pictures of the fun things I've been doing....
First, Cassie came
over!!! Cassie is my FAVORITE person in the whole world!
She gave me a
sqeeky tennis ball!!!
I squeeked it and
squeeked it and squeeked it all night but there are no photos because
the family was trying to watch a movie.
All I heard all
night was "Yngo shhhhhhhh". To which I replied "SQUEEK!"
In the morning, I
gave Cassie some hugs and kisses...
As you can see,
Cassie REALLY likes it when I cuddle with her!
Next, I played
with my favorite toy in the entire world... WUBBA!
You'll notice that
both Wubba and my chin are a bit bloody.
I kind of forgot
about the new steps by the front garden and landed on my chin on the
rocks after a particularly nice jump.
I spent a lot of
time punishing Wubba for that!
ps. You can
see my broken tooth also. That is from the famous
"Baseball" incident, not because of Wubba.
On Sunday, Diane
came to visit and she brought me a FLEECY WUBBA!!!
I've wanted this
so badly that I could barely think straight but Ann kept saying No
(and making snide comments about how I NEVER think straight)
I am sooooo happy
that Diane came to visit!
Here I am breaking
in MY new fleecy Wubba!
Ohhhh it feels so
good in my mouth, it's so soft on my paws... I am the happiest dog EVER!
And finally it was MONDAY!
Every year for my
Birthday, we take the first Spring walk in the woods!
This is my
favorite time of year because all Winter the trees have been falling
down because of the storms,
meaning there are
LOTS of sticks that need cleaning up!
My Birthday also
means that the river out back will be deep enough for SWIMMING!!!
C'mon Ann... Move
it already! We have a river to get to!!! I already found
one stick for my relocation project...
Listening for Ann
to see if she's coming... She's sooooo S-L-O-W!
Notice, I am
already in the RIVER!
Now, there are
some tricks to making the most of your time in the woods.
I have MANY years
experience with this, so listen up...
important to make a WILD entrance! This will scare off
After that, dig
around on the bottom a bit so it gets really nice and muddy...If
you're lucky, you will locate a good stick...
Dislodge the stick
and balance it in the middle.
(This part is
important. Trust me, I've learned the hard way!)
Take the stick
toward the camera, act all nonchalant, but then really RACE toward
the camera as you get closer!
This part is super
fun because it causes Ann to run and screech loudly (sometimes she
Once you have
removed all of the small sticks, locate the Mother of all Sticks!
This is the stick
that every dog dreams of! This is the moment you've waiting
your life for. It is what you were born to do!!!!
It's time to begin
Test it a bit too
see how easily it will come apart and then................ GIVE IT
ALL YOU'VE GOT!!!!!
demolition is complete, you can stand back and let everyone admire
Your owners will
be VERY pleased that you did you part to help the environment and
keep the yard from flooding.
So much so that
they'll let you pick a stick to take back to the house.
I would suggest
choosing one that is short enough to run with, but long enough to
still be dangerous with.
Here I am
flaunting my "take home" stick in front of the girls
Tonight, I'll get
a bath (and rip the towels!) and then we'll have you know what... ICE CREAM!!!
You'll notice that
Ice Cream is a three step process...
I love my
Birthday! I can't wait until I turn Ten!!!
