It’s my Birthday!

August 28, 2012 at 8:59 am 17 comments

It was doubtful whether I’d make it to 2012. I was such a feisty, headstrong, rambunctious critter. Just ask my rescuer, foster mom, or my new Mom and Dad. They’ll tell you.

But I did it! Guess how old I am…

Yup, 3!

Mom placed all these things around me, and I sat real still for a long time (she was feeding me little bits of chicken while she was snapping pictures)….

and then…I couldn’t take it anymore, so I gave Mom the raspberries…

But thanks for the birthday celebration for me, Mom! Are you celebrating a rescue dog’s birthday soon? Share! (And I’ll promise not to raspberry you.)

      Julie,
      Thanks for saying I have a wonderful Mom! I do think she’s pretty cool–and lately I’ve been showing her how much I love her. Every morning I walk up to her at her desk, wiggle my little tail, plead with my eyes, and she picks me up and puts me on her lap. I rest my front paws on her desk and look out her window while she puts her arms around me and works. Cool, huh?

    Happy Birthday # 4,
    AnD mAy YoU hAvE mAnY MaNy MOre!!

    After seeing you sort of sideways i still think we are still kin, but maybe not as much for seems as if you are gray on your body lots more than me; i’ve got lots of white on my body and all my paws are white and can’t see all yours, but thats alright glad we think we are still kin; its great to be kin to a celeberty, don’t you think? I also think you are a lot Camera friendly in these pics., just keep on and you can soon join a photo contest. I’ll try to update mine soon. Well as i said you have a whole bunch more birthdays along with lots of treats.

    Hugs and paws from Beaugie and ‘Peep MoM.’

      Beaugie and Peep Mom,

      I’m trying really, really hard to be camera friendly! There’s just something about pointing a thing toward me and then a flash going off that makes me cringe, you know? Wish I could smile and say “cheese” (maybe even get some cheese), when the picture is snapped. We’ll see. I’ll try again in the future to be more adorable.

      Yup, I think we are kissin’ cousins! I do have lots of gray fur. And you should see me today! I had a haircut yesterday and wow, I think I lost three pounds! But, boy, does that feel better in the summer heat.

      Take care of yourself, Beaugie, and lick your Mom Peep.

      Carrie,
      Do you get lots of treats on your birthday? I did. A little hot dog, some hard boiled egg (that was at breakfast), and tonight, a special treat when I go night-night.
      Thanks for wishing me a happy day!

      Susan,
      Thanks so much for saying my pictures are cute. Actually, I don’t think I’m very photogenic at all. And I don’t like getting my picture taken. I always look sullen. I tried hard to be a happy dog on my birthday, but really…I just don’t ace photos!
      Thanks for the birthday wishes!
      Wiggles & woofs,

    Hi, B.J. Will you please send me one of the first pictures of Charlie Bear when you got him? He was (still is, but was cuter then) so stinking cute! If it’s all right with you, I’d like to post him on my CUTE ANIMALS board on Pinterest.
