Happy Birthday!

I want to wish a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my friend, the lovely Airedale Maggie. She is ten years old today!

Maggie was one of my earliest buddies on DWB, and we have a special connection because we are almost twins! (except for the whole breed thing...) Maggie was born exactly two days before me.

I have not been very good lately about remembering everyone's birthdays (vacation kind of messed me up) but I did remember to send Maggie a birthday card. But she and her brother Mitch sent me a huge early birthday package full of pawsome gifts. I am so lucky!!!

The box arrived Tuesday and my dad didn't mention it until 10 p.m.!!! He said, "Hey, who's Maggie? She sent you something." He is so clueless sometimes. (When we went to Boston to the park, he asked Agatha and Archie's PLs what "roaching" was, WHILE we were roaching! How embarrassing. He just doesn't pay enough attention sometimes.)

Wow, that smells DELICIOUS! What's in there?!?

These are the amazing things that I have read about and seen on blogs but NEVER HAD!! A MOOZLE! A Moo Tube! A Rollo! And liver treats!

They sent a funny card too!

But wait - what's this?

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Ah, the Spider Stuffie. How beautiful, furry, and squeaky you are. The Spider rattles. When you chew on it, its belly grunts. Its head squeaks. And four of its legs have squeakers too! It is simply amazing.

I think my mom was even more excited than I was, though! Look what Maggie and Mitch's mom sent for her! It looks just like me, don't you think?

My dad thought since everyone else got a present, he should get the Moozle. I don't think so.

I have had a few liver treats but they are making me wait until Friday and Saturday to eat the "big stuff." My actual birthday is Saturday and we are going to a cook-out on Friday. Two dogs I have never met will be there!

Also, Saturday is my parents' 5th anniversary, so we will have to celebrate that a little bit too.

Maggie, my parents don't give me enough allowance to buy you a big box of goodies, but I did send plenty o' wiry kisses in the card! (Though I hear now that dogs can get an American Express card....hmmm....) Thank you for making my birthday special and I hope that yours is fantastic.

OMDog Lenny, I've never heard of all this stuff either, I think I had a sheltered life until now. I can't wait to have a barkday!
Don't put your Dad down buddy - I never knew what roaching was until I visited your site and saw a picture.
Happy Barkday for soon.
Love 'n' Snuffs
